Simon and I have been talking over the last few days that I've stayed with him and I asked him to put me in school. I need something to take my mind off of what just happened and he agreed only if I promised to tell him if anything strange started happening again. I did and so I had my first day today.

It was weird being in school again. There were so many kids around me and I kept having these flashbacks to when I was stuck in the warehouse with all the other proxies, except they were usually older than me. Now I was back in a place where there were people around my age everywhere. The adults in charge weren't speaking in code or clawing at their faces, they were actually trying to help and teach kids. They cared. I got so used to everyone not caring about me and just having to take care of myself.

The day after I made my last post Simon took me out to get whatever I wanted. I know he's trying to make the situation less bad but it's really hard. I'm happy he's trying though. I ended up getting my hair cut very short because in the months that I had been staying with the others it had gotten tangled and gross from all the dirt. I also lost a lot of weight, or that's what Simon says, so he's been making sure I eat three meals a day. I'm not really sure how much I ate while I stayed with the proxies. I think I got all my food myself.

But I guess school was okay. I had to take a few tests to see if I could go into the sixth grade since I missed so much of fifth grade, but I passed them. So now I'm starting Middle School. Mom and Dad would be proud.


  1. I hope you get the chance to have a normal life. Cutting your hair can also give you a feeling of freedom, of losing the dead weight you've been carrying around. I wish you all the best.

  2. All the best to you, kiddo. Your parents would be proud. Stay strong.

  3. Hey, good on you, Cyn. School's important for your future, so I'm sure your folks would be happy to know you're back in it. Don't be like me and sleep through everything!

    You're one tough kid. Hang in there.

  4. I'm proud of you too sweetie. And they would be more then proud of you. They would be overjoyed.

  5. I think if "Nick" were around, he'd be happy to see you were doing well.

    Good luck.
