Diary entry 456#
People are dying, it's because of something I- or they created, I don't know because I can't remember
anything. All I have is this diary that is supposedly mine. There are way too many entries in this thing, one for each hour of the day its all so confusing to me. But they gave it to me and I guess it's mine? There is nothing but messy fast scribbles in this thing- details of people I don't know drawings of things ive never seen, warnings to myself; but I seem to have no recollection of this. All I know is people are dying and its all my fault because of that stupid seed they gave me this entry details it all what I- they created to cull the population.
Ivory thorns is a special type of illnesses in which from 3-7 hands sprout from the mouth, back or random cracks and crevices of the area around the host, either in the dark or a small closed off area or when they are alone. These hands are mutated unstable they take the appearance of hands but are they really hands? Why is it called ivory? Why is it called thorns? I don't even know and I think I created it? Or they created it? This "Illness" is an extreme version of "The Ink Cough" and is deadly. These hands much like the Ink cough represent Greed, Sloth and Gluttony typically there can be up to 7 hands to represent all sins the host committed. Why do they appear you ask? Extreme stress and despair a temporary mind set of "No Hope" it feels as if you are drowning the host then slowly starts to suffocate and bleed ink or "Black blood" from the eyes, nose or mouth the host usually dies within in the first 15 minutes of the progression. The body quickly starts to decay within in an hour tiny sprouts grow onto the body. All that is left of the person is an eye full of hate and malice, it cannot move all it can feel is hate the more hate the bigger the Sprouts become eventually blooming into black spider lilies. The lilies differ in size and shape picking the wrong one will infect you however picking the right one could cure one person who's illness has not fully matured. But warning picking one will cause the others to burst into flames and disappear, No one currently knows which one to pick but there is one clue "The eye can see all" All but is a lie"
I wonder what that actually means it could mean so many things but- it's just too dangerous to find out. It's my fault I think? Everything is foggy and I only know what's in this diary that they gave me. But who is "They" that's all I can think about. "Them". I don't understand am I supposed to find a cure? How when I dont know any of these people are how to get close enough without dying- it's all so confusing. Please if you can read this
