“I am often thought of as being remarkably bright, and yet my brains, more often than not, are busily devising new and interesting ways of bringing my enemies to sudden, gagging, writhing, agonizing death.”
― Alan Bradley, The Weed That Strings the Hangman’s Bag

I shot Bruce Sans Pity in the face and again before his body could even fall to the ground. At the same moment Pete plugged him with an arrow that exploded and killed or wounded dozens of people. I have to say that I feel no better for the deed. He has no idea why he was killed. No real vengeance was exacted. It was just a simple murder. I am really bummed out.

As for the rest of Paris, we came here to check out the knightly orders and possibly join one. Instead we sat in on a bunch of boring ass lectures about the Nothing and the Matter. My head hurts. When we got out of there I was glad to be gone but felt a little cheated. I didn’t get the chance to talk to all of the orders. The next time I go to a convention, I am ditching the guys and doing my own thing.

Following the convention we piled into The Professor’s van and headed East. When we realized we need fuel The Professor took us down and crashed into a tree. John suggested setting up an ambush as we were well into the enemy lands. We did so and waited but I got bored so I slipped off and did some fishing. When I heard the call that the enemy was moving in I ran back and laid down some fire into a group fighting the Professor. I could see Pete hiding in the van and shooting out at the men. Explosions where happening all around and a grenade was thrown at me. I caught it and threw it back and then started moving to help Pete. The next thing I know, I am slammed in the back and smashed into the ground. When I rolled over to face my attacker I could see no one but I heard a “Sorry” come from the shadows. It turned out that The Professor was using his invisibility to attack me. He mistook me for one of the enemies. We laughed about it later. After the battle was over we confiscated some of the hoversteeds and flew towards the enemy camp. I saw an opening under a bridge and barn stormed the thing. The guys followed and we landed on the other side amongst the enemy. Who knows if we will survive this foolish plan but whatever happens, the next few hours will be interesting.
