A diary account about a young boy, Pip Friday 20th December 1880 Dear diary I woke up today and it was a cold day. I should have had breakfast but I decided to have a run to my parent’s grave to lay some flowers. When I got there some one grabbed my mouth from behind. I wanted to scream but my mouth got sealed off from my scream. He told me to get him food and a file or he would kill me when I was warm and asleep. I ran home and tried to sleep but all I could dream of was that horrible convict. Saturday 21st December 1880 Dear diary When I woke up today I went to the kitchen to get some food then into the garage to get a file. After a little while of collecting the stuff I snuck out of the house to give the convict what he needed, which was the food and file. When I got home my sister looked at me with a grumpy look to have a go at me. Suddenly, Joe my sister’s husband took me to his garage to get away from my sister. He asked me loads of questions I didn’t know where to start, so I just walked up to my bed to have a little sleep before dinner was ready. When I woke up dinner was ready and Joe asked me if I wanted to have a friendly stroll. After dinner we walked up the woods to have a stroll and me and Joe saw the convict being arrested by the soldiers. I heard him say that he stole the food and the file. When me and Joe got home my sister was talking to a man who I haven’t met yet.
