Journal entry[edit | edit source]

[Most of the pages are filled with professions of love made to a woman named Charlotte. Entries are chaotic, undated]
Charlotte Cutterin is the love of my life! When she is not near me, I burn with longing... I suffocate with loneliness! I suffer the worst possible torment! How can I make her understand that I, not Albert, am her destiny?! [illegible fragment]
I have found a solution. The witch from Lynx Crag! She will help me end my heart’s agony!
I shall now have to tighten my belt several notches, but I have purchased a magic elixir from the witch. She said if I convince my beloved to drink it, "I will be able to forget my problems forever.” I sold the rest of my possessions and purchased jewels to give Charlotte when I propose. Gods, soon now, she shall be mine!
As the witch instructed, I mixed the elixir with wine. I prepared a small picnic near the chapel at Cutterin Manor. My beloved agreed to meet to talk to me, but though she drank my enchanted Est Est, still she refused my proposal! She also spouted some nonsense about only becoming my wife when the jewels I gave her grow into grape vines. She fell into a strange, hysterical mood and buried my present with her bare hands by their family chapel. Perhaps I need wait before the elixir takes effect…?
Gods! Curses upon that cruel witch! She cheated me! She betrayed... [illegible fragment] The next day I went to Cutterin Manor to see Charlotte, but instead… a woodland monstrosity had taken over the entire property! So that is the "end to my heart’s suffering" the foul enchantress spoke of! The elixir brought about the death of my beloved! But death… death shall not separate us! I am ready to die! To live with her for all eternity! [illegible fragment] I shall hang, for my sins, for love, for Charlotte!
