Dear Diary,

Mom and Dad went into the NCR camp nearby to trade for supplies but they haven't come back yet. I hope nothing bad has happened to them.

Note is in the truck

Dear Diary,

I took a chance today and left the animals alone to go look for Mom and Dad. I found them in that camp, they had become horrible feral ghouls! I didn't know what to do, they came at me so fast. Oh god what have I done...

Dear Diary,

I hate being all alone, I want my Mom and Dad back, but I can't have them back because I killed them. I didn't want to kill them but I had to kill them, otherwise they would have eaten me. I hope the animals don't eat me. Can animals become ghouls?

Dear Diary,

The animals, they are evil. They tried to eat me in my sleep. They want the farm for themselves. Now that Mom and Dad are gone they want the farm for themselves. They are plotting against me, plotting to eat me. They are becoming ghouls like my parents and they want to eat me like my parents did. Too many of them to kill them all. I know what I'll do, I'll burn the house down around me, then the animals can't eat me because there will be nothing left for them to eat!
