“Hi Journal. It’s been a long day, hasn’t it. I’m so glad I found you, and you were so accommodating. To think there were even useful formulae I could transcribe! We’re going to be the best of friends, I just know it!
Why do I feel the sudden urge to eat mushrooms? Hmm, that is odd, isn’t it journal? Probably because you smell so wonderful.
Anyway, as long as we keep that nasty Inquisitor’s paws off you, we’ll be fine. What is that journal? You think I should go get some blood of an innocent villager? Why, I have that here, silly journal. Right in my backpack – never know when virginal blood will show up as an ingredient! What, fresh? Oh journal, you’re so silly. I think I’ll stop writing in you for the night.
Good night journal. Sleep well, for tomorrow we’ll have even more adventures!"
