Found on a convenience store wall, date unknown

Huntsville, Ala.

The first time I realized I wanted to kill someone, truly murder someone, was when I was fourteen. A woman on the street told me to move out of her way. At that time I felt something inside me. I wanted her to die. I wanted her to no longer exist. But I did not act on it.

Dec. 7 – Frenchtown, N.J.

At first I didn’t notice. Kate and I were so shut up in the apartment building that I didn’t notice the smell. It was the light that caught my attention. The flickering that danced even after the sunset. The town was burning.

Dec. 3 – Sydney

There was nowhere for anyone to go. He was afraid, but he would never tell you that. The city was in a complete chaos and there was absolutely nowhere for anyone to go. Rumors were that they had armed guards shooting anyone trying to leave, but he knew that wasn’t true. He knew this because he had gone to the edge of the city the day before, just to see if he could. Part of him really just wanted to get shot and get it over with, but he would never tell you that.

People were being pooled from all the surviving evacuation centers in the surrounding areas. The first thing Hill noticed was that there weren’t many people coming in. What the hell is going on?

Told December 3, but covers the days of December 1-3

Frenchtown, N.J.

Obviously I don’t need to explain the events to you because I think you know just as much as I do. However, I think it is fair to explain to you that I believe this is entirely my fault. You see, all my life I have been a very religious person. Not to say I was a radical or went door-to-door, but I have always believed that God is above us and He is watching over us. I am telling you this because a couple months ago I asked Him for some help, and I believe that He has answered.
