Dear Diary--A Journal From Hell

Dear Diary--A Journal From Hell

It brings shudders to everyone, if only in our secret thoughts. What do YOU imagine it to be? A nightmarish kingdom such as the one Hieronymus Bosch envisioned, perhaps? A perilous account by Dante, guided by Virgil?

What would happen if you were unjustly sentenced to go there...without an explanation why? For all Eternity?

I received a package in the mail recently, wrapped in a battered and soot-blackened wrapping. Intrigued, yet somewhat wary of the contents that might lie within, I poured myself a cup of strong coffee, retired to my comfortable chair in the living room of my modest home in front of a cheerful fire, and then opened it tentatively.

There was no note; no explanation concerning the "gift"--who might have sent it, or by what post it was initiated. A thin book, in worse condition than the package wrapping. Scarred by fire, bent at the edges, altogether distressing.

No title. No author name.

I carefully flipped the cover, curious but unafraid by then. I had opened...a diary. An account written by the hand of a man named Terence, as I was to discover. The first words captivated me. "He's watching me. He beats me when I cross his path." The rough script nearly illegible at first.

And so, I read on. This was NOT Dante, but it was fascinating. See for yourself. Take a seat before your warm, crackling fire, and then walk with this soul through Hell.

Wow! This sounds like a very interesting place. Wouldn't want to live there. Come to think of it, I wouldn't want to visit either.

But reading about it was Interesting.

Well done.

I sat and read aloud, your story to a friend today. She and I were deep into your story by the second page. The story kept our attention and I read it completely in one setting. It's a wonderful writing and I'm happy that at no time during, I could guess what was going to happen next. My friend only stated, 'that was a good story!' I, on the other hand, give you a bow of appreciation for your talent and say Thank you for sharing......RB

We all HOPE that our readers become so engaged by the story that they will read all the way through at a single sitting:) I'm thrilled that you did so. This two-word reply seems so inadequate, but...Thank you:)
