I am not sure what the Ancestors have in store for me, nor which way my Destiny should go, but at the moment it seems to be heading towards matters of the heart. This is most unexpected!

I have never before been remotely interested in finding some one to spend my time with as I have always found comfort in the safety of my animals. Keeping egg layers and tending to my crops in the greenhouse has been my life for as long as I can remember. When I was taught how to grow and farm by a stranger one day that was travelling through the Island I was on at the time, I have always kept this path.

The day I came to these lands, I decided my path just be steadfast, so I continued in my work as a Farmer. Egg layers are much easier to befriend than the meat eaters, and greenhouses are quick to construct once the raw materials have been collected. Seed gathering is also easily obtainable, especially with a Trike as my friend.

I have met him only a handful of times, but I suddenly take on the persona of some one other than myself! I find myself giggly, like a young girl, and I even experience blushing when he is near. If he speaks to me, as he often does... although sometimes he also speaks out loud to no one in particular, I find myself over come with a strange tickling sensation in my tummy and my heart beats faster than it should! Very odd behaviour he can insight in me. I wonder sometimes if he is able to use potions or odd magicks on me. They are not unheard of.

The Swamp people from my Home planet know how to brew certain herbs together to make healing salves and other strange ointments... perhaps he is a descendant of them and can use toxins to make me feel this way? I wonder if others feel the same near him? Perhaps it is just part of this Islands way?

Oh well. I must get back to my animals at first light and I need sleep, so I shall leave my words here in my notes.

The work on my water pen is going well, despite a few set backs. Namely from the group of sharks that I suspect bought about an untimely death to our Dory II Shark.

I help my own and made sure they stayed well away from our house and beaches, but I am fearful that they will soon be back. They seem adamant on attacking everything and anything that comes near them. I see they have a strange creature with them too. A HUGE water animal with four large flippers. He is quite intimidating.

I have not seen him today, nor heard him more than once over the implant. I think perhaps the Ancestors were wrong for heading towards that destiny and I am hoping they will soon change my fate. It is a pointless and fruitless chase that I refuse to follow. I am far too busy ensuring the safety of my animals and the base is secure, as I am sure he is too and that is why he ignores my questions or any small talk I attempt.

I have requested that I attend a Summit Meeting with a friend I have made on the Island, although I am unsure what this meeting is about or if I even need to be in attendance, but as the appointed leader of our Tribe, I feel it is my duty to attend such formalities. Besides... it means I will see 'him', if only fleetingly and he will probably be too busy to notice me any way.

Maybe I will do my hair differently... or fashion some new armour...

I finally finished the water pen! Bruce and Spoon seem quite happy in there, I just need to move a feeding trough a little closer for them so I do not need to hand feed them so much.

I have made a start on a Nursery for the sole purpose of breeding my animals. This will benefit both the Tribe and other people here on the Island should they wish to claim a free dinosaur to help them get established. I plan to create younger and healthy pets for people that they can use as companions and workers.

I went too the Volcano today, and I was pleased to see that the Crystals have once again started to push from the rocks, this pleased me greatly as it is such a difficult raw material to find, but it makes such a lovely addition to my buildings when I temper it into glass panes.

I didn't see anyone up there, and I left a large donation in the Vault again, oh, I must remember to drop a note to the Traders to let them know, I completely forgot to do that! Oh well, next time I shall remember. Damn my emotions getting in the way and making me forget.

I am still unsure if I will be able to attend the Summit meeting that was spoken of previously, but I shall certainly try. If I am sleeping I will have to ask some one to take some notes for me.

I have not heard from Juno for a number of sleeps now, which is a shame as i wanted to let her know that I have stopped fishing the waters I had chosen, and my catch has gotten away. I felt that he was not interested and I was silly to even think he would be. Oh well, life goes on!

I decided that I want to venture into the Snowy areas for some new animals and adventures, but realised quickly that I needed warmer clothing. I had heard that it was possible to fashion Fur armour from the skinned pelts of certain animals, but the only ones I knew of were in the snow... a conundrum to say the least! After a few questions over the implant, I was offered plenty of advice of other animals around the Island that could also provide me with this much needed material, and I rode out on my wolf to find these creatures. I did not fare well.

I found one of the creatures and we made short work of that, my wolf it seems, is quite adept at skinning and bounded back to me with a mouthful of pelt. With a new spring in my step we rode off to find another one... but instead we found a strange beast. It took on the appearance of our Carnos back at the base, but this one was surrounded by a strange red mist. I immediately started shouting into my implant and in a panic I fled in the opposite direction. I made my wolf run as fast as he could, no stopping, and we ran all the way home too the safety of our walls.

I was both angry and myself for running away, and happy that I was safe behind my walls again, I needed to rethink my plan for acquiring the 320 pelts I needed to visit the Volcano for a set of this Fur armour.

Something then occurred which sent my evening dark.

As my friend on Earth used to tell me "there are plenty more fish in the sea", i just wish this Sea was full of the friendly fish and not the big, sharp teethed variety we seem to have here!

Despite being given a reprimand and feeling like I am constantly being ignored or rebuked, I still find myself wanting to see him. Stupid emotions. This did not happen on Earth! I was able to go about my own business with out having any thoughts towards any one else. This is most unnerving. I am not sure how to deal with it and I feel like i have no one to confide in either.

I even asked if I had been the reason behind his recent behaviour, if I had in some way mistreated or upset him? But he said no... so it was left like that.

Despite that, it seems I am about to be taxed on my little bit of space that I am using on this island, so I am planning to expand. If nothing else, I will need some more working dinosaurs to help me bring in the fee's required for the tax. With that in mind I plan to do a little construction work on my base and move everyone around. Perhaps even make the animals a much nicer pen to sleep in and somewhere for me to store all my items. I might even start making use of this metal I have recently been collecting and smelting... although the reason for having so much is the time I have been spending, unnecessarily, at the Volcano.

Now I find myself with far too many ingots and nothing to do with them, so I think it is time to learn a new skill of metalworking to see if I can fashion a more robust building for my materials and animals.

Perhaps it will result in needing more time up at the Volcano?

He further torments me.

I went too collect some metal to finish my current project on the Farm, only to find my Sven was NOT where I left him. After waiting what felt like an eternity, it turns out that my sedate non aggressive Anky had apparently turned and started attacking others in the pens. Because of this, he was impounded and I was ordered to pay a fine for his release.

Payment? Obsidian! Which I needed my Anky for... instead, I had to do it myself using a heavy metal pick. Needless to say my broken nails, dirty sweaty body under my leather shirt was absolutely disgusting and further aggravated me. I was ready to go full on at him and I was more than ready to give him a slap round the face for making me do it. My Anky has never shown any aggression and he is so laid back that he may as well be laying down most of the time! Daft things needs such encouragement to actually help me mine my metal he is so lazy and sedate. I was so incredibly angry.

I stormed back up the ramp carrying my obsidian, nails bloodied, face and hair a complete mess, sweaty, angry, stomping. I got into the compound and literally threw the damn obsidian at him and opened my mouth to scream obscenities at him... and there he was stood... naked.... grinning.... like it was completely normal. I was dumbfounded and could nothing but stare. The anger slid away quickly as I turned into a ridiculous looking teenager all doe eyed and dreamy. Stupid emotions.

I got my Anky back and me and Sven went out to climb onto Quetzy... only to find that Captain had flown him back too the Farm leaving me stranded up there, with him. Begrudgingly I turned Sven around and started the long walk back.

In the morning I woke, still angry, but determined to finish my project... which it turned out... did not require any metal!

I am near completion of my project and one of lovely neighbours, a Huntsman, came over to see what we had been up too and stayed for a while with us. We learnt quite a lot about a Huntsman's life and what he does with the strange creatures that carry an infliction making them angry. They are easy to see because of their red mist. I think I had that yesterday!

Hopefully we can tell the rest of the Islanders about it soon, it is a lovely place we have created for everyone. Maybe 'he' will come and visit? At least if he is not dressed I am close too the ocean where I can cool off!

I am likely to fall asleep writing this today, I hope I remember to put my journal away when I wake in the morning!

I am not sure what happened last night, but Rur visited, and we were chatting away, when his gorgeous lady Rex suddenly dropped an egg! It was quite unexpected, but luckily I have a nursery with Air conditioners that can perfectly replicate all enviroments needed for these dinosaurs and their fertilised eggs. We ran over with this ginormous egg and got settled in for a long wait.

He took his lady Rex out to find meat for the inevitable baby that would hatch and we began chatting. He is such a lovely person, he seems ... I am not sure ... but we seem to get along really well!

The egg was moving and we could hear a faint scratching noise, at that point I thought it best that i shut the door. Sometimes these little babies are over excited and bolt for exits! I reassured his lady Rex that her egg was in good hands, and quickly closed the door before she took a bite at me as she was desperate to come into the Nursery!.

I turned to head back and sit with Rur... when the egg cracked. Not just cracked, but literally fell apart... and there, grinning up at us... were THREE baby rex! All girls, and all absolutely identical! We were shocked and happy and excited and nervous and giggly with what had occurred. Both of us running back and forth from the refrigeration system where Rur had put all the meat, we slowly and careful hand fed our eager little babies. We had only just been discussing who would raise the baby rex and had decided that if the newborn was a boy, Rur would take him and raise him as a Huntsmans companion to use in the field.

If it was a girl, I was to care for her here on the Farm and she would be my new breeding Rex. But THREE?! This was most unexpected. Then, something quite bizarre happened.

The Obilisk nearby had been radiating a lot lately, its light getting a lot brighter, and it started to hum louder than usual. That was the last thing I remember.

When I woke, I was alone in the Nursery, with half the roof missing, the gate in pieces on the ground, and no rex to be seen. In a panic I ran into my compound and still could not find the babies, I ran past the greenhouse, which also had its door and part of the roof missing, and out the side door where I nearly ran full pelt into two of the girls. Clearly both were hungry and looked a little unwell, so I quickly threw some meat into a trough nearby and ran off to find the other one.

Alas, she was nowhere to be found, neither was Rur. Yet his flyer was here and two of the rex girls. So, I have spent all day redoing the Nursery, making a few adjustments. I have also extended the Egg barn to further accommodate some recent arrivals, and I have also replaced the missing glass from both greenhouses. I had to walk too the Volcano today to collect some crystal, though I saw no sign of him anywhere at all, still I noticed I was hovering around waiting for him to wake. But, I was too busy so I started the long trek back home with my items so I could finish my work.

I hope Rur is alright and that he wakes soon, his letter explained some of the things that happened, but not everything.

I am concerned about the other Islanders.

I have heard from no one for a number of days now and I am getting a frighteningly horrid sense of lonliness. My Tribe members have been silent and I see no signs of any activity on my base were I normally find the animals or items have moved.

I sent a letter too the Overseer and I have not had a reply... I am not sure if this is something to worry about, or he just has not replied.

My tavern friend has been quiet for some time now, and I have not seen any other Islanders in the skies or hunting. Although a new lodging seems to have appeared on my beach which is also a bit strange. It looks like a floating hut of some sort, so perhaps it will move on?

My new friend Rur has not visited me, nor has he spoke to me over the implant. Perhaps I should write to him? Although I am sure that was his Quetzal that I saw on a recent visit too the Green Obilisk, but he did not seem to recognize me as he did not respond to me. Saying that, it was dark and he looked very tired... I should of stayed longer and checked around the area.

I hope everyone is well, I do not like this bad feeling. I might take a little flight around the Island to see if I can find any other signs of life.

I have been unable to write for a while due to being so busy. By the time I have finished my work for the day, I have literally collapsed into my bed and slept until the sunrise, where i have started again at first light until the setting sun.

I must keep busy... I plan to think of nothing but work. I was doing very well with this plan as I have managed to extend the work Barn quite considerably, but I have stayed within my Farms borders by making use of space i already had that was just being wasted. I have also increased my egg layers to include some strange new animals I have not seen before. Namely a large carnivore who came with a pack and some flying beasts. Both are good companions to have it seems though their egg laying is extremely slow much like the Queztals.

I say it 'was' working, he summoned me. Me personally! I was invited to the Volcano to view a new tree that he had nourished, though I can only hope he asked me for another reason.

Either way, I dropped my tools and left poor Christophe with all my materials as I ran off to see him. It was not a wasted journey, the trees truly are magnificent! He was also in fine form and was actually, dare I say, playful? I hope I am not reading the signals wrong, I really do... but damn it, now all the feelings have come flooding back despite me trying my hardest to be really mad at him as he never replied to my letter.

I have also not forgotten the Anky incident.

Oh well, back to my wall building as we make a huge extension too the Farm!

The extensions and new buildings are looking good and the animals seem very happy, judging from the number of eggs and new babies we have had since moving them all!

We will soon have to start selling the offspring as we can not possibly feed them all ourselves. Just this morning we had a very strong allo' male that we need to rehome as we already have a Pack alpha and we do not want them to start fighting for that position. They are very headstrong.

Our mischievous new diplos are settling in well. Jenna is extremely naughty and keeps moving out of her pen when she can but Sarah seems to keep her in check. Mummy diplo just seems to let them get on with it and turns a blind eye to their antics, perhaps this is normal in the wild?

My new bird, however, is NOT welcomed at the moment. I purchased him from... 'him' as a friend for our female Argy. But, it seems he has taken a dislike me and he has TWICE thrown me off my saddle and into the freezing cold waters surrounding our peninsula. I shall have to remember from now on to keep fairly low too the ground when on him and and try to skirt around any bodies of water. I was chattering my teeth I was so cold as I ran into my house and quickly lit my fire. No apology from HIM though... he makes me so mad, but I know if I hear his voice or see him I will forget all about it and just turn into a mushy and ridiculous loved up fool.

I suppose he can stay, for now. The Argy.

We have released the bears and they are loving their new pen. It is massive and they are roaming free with as much room as they can get. We have also let some of the others run around to see how they get on.

I tried to thank him for my new armour as well... but again... no response... why the hell do I like him so much?! Bah... back to building and renovations tomorrow. Maybe i can ignore him if I am summoned again?

I finally recovered. It was dark, cold, lonely, but I persevered and broke through the fever. I knew it had to get worse before it got better, but I have not felt pain like that before.

Thankfully my friend and neighbour came by quite a few times and checked on the animals, food troughs and looked in on me every now and then. I owe a life debt to him I truly do. First thing I did when I went outside after being bedridden for so long? Checked the damn mail box to see if 'he' had bothered writing me a letter! I am my own worst enemy.

We have expanded the farm slightly and had quite a few babies along the way. Most of them twins, which were more than a handful! We also let a few beasts back into the wild instead of keeping them for no reason. They were clearly not happy here so it was better for everyone letting them go.

We have also been victims of an attack. We had moved a couple of dinosaurs to the outdoor pen as we were planning to sell them, and some scoundrel has killed them. My neighbour got too Daniel just in time to see him fall too the ground and give his last breath. His said his body was full of arrows and there was nothing that could of been done. This criminal also stole our new exotic plants that we found in the swamp area. I had nurtured them myself from seed and they had grown in huge species which we aptly named X whilst we think of a more appropriate name for them. Now I have to grow some more, which thankfully I can do as I was clever enough to collect a lot of seeds when I found the first ones!

We have also been forced to install some added security measures and we are making improvements too the farm to ensure this doesn't happen again. We are very upset that this has happened to us as we are a peaceful Tribe and have no enemies that we are aware of and have never provoked anyone on the Island.

Hopefully it was a one off and will not happen again, but if it does, we will be prepared this time!

Just as I felt fully recovered I took a disastrous hit to my confidence and my heart has been broken at the hands of criminals. Not only have the killed our baby allosaurus, but they felt the need to attack our bears and gentle giant, Matilda the Rhino.

They painted bizarre symbols and words into their fur and we spent most of the day and late evening trying to clean them all up again. We will have to watch them all closely to ensure that the paint was not toxic in any way.

During major renovations too the Farm, we were paid a visit by 'him'. Unfortunately I was far too busy to stop and chat. If only he had let me know he was coming, I would of requested that he wait until I had finished so he could see the farm in all its glory! Instead, he saw a ramshackle mess of animals going in every direction and me looking dirty, sweaty and presumably disgusting. My hair was disheveled, my hands and face filthy from moving the animals and doing all the building work.

Plus I was hand rearing a Gigantosaurus who seemed to take quite a liking to him and I had to keep instructing her to leave him alone! She is a bit clumsy and kept kicking over my mail box with her tail. She will make a fine companion on the Farm if I can get her to calm down! At the moment she just wants to play and I think she forgets how big she is.

Oh well, maybe he will come back now that we are almost finished with the work. Christophe has been an invaluable friend and such a massive support to me while I was not myself. He has his bears trained so extremely well, and the improvements he has made too the security of the Farm are just amazing. Jessica also seems to treat him as her best friend and she does a crazy little dance when he comes near... it shakes the ground, but it is lovely to see her daft face when he flies in!

I like having him around as well, he is such a nice caring person, always has time for me and even when I have one of my moments and kind of daze off into the distance, he patiently waits for me to come back round... he is... always... a good friend... hmm?

The renovations are going well... a bit slower than I would of liked, but they are coming along. My mind is being kept busy at least, so they do not wander too the Volcano.

Unfortunately, the new barn means I get a good clear of it now, not sure if that is a good or bad thing. Oh well. Perhaps one day he will notice me? Hopefully not any day soon though as I look a complete mess! I have had to tie my hair up as roughly as I can into some manageable way to keep it from falling into my eyes. My clothes are absolutely filthy and even ripped in some places, much like my hands which are covered in small cuts and bruises. But I need to get this barn done so the larger animals have somewhere to sleep at night safely.

I am struggling a little to keep up with my daily chores on the farm, but as long as the animals are clean and fed that is all that matters.

I had a dizzy spell yesterday and fell from the roof. I suspect it was due to my lack of food and water as I am so busy that I keep pushing aside the hunger pains so I can keep going. I took a fair hit to my head and it was bleeding for a long time, but I think I sewed it up okay and hopefully it will not scar. Not that anyone will notice... But never mind.

Well, I must keep going, tomorrow is another day and the work will not get done by itself!

The barn is finished, structurally at least, now for the painting!

The Kibble fridge is almost full thanks to the unrelenting and tireless work of Christophe. I have been able to help where i can by keeping the vegetables and berries fridge as full as possible, whilst also collect meats for all the animals and the other fridge. I found out yesterday that my pair of wolves had given birth, I did not even realise she was carrying as they seem to prefer to keep hidden behind the Ankylo's, but she came into the new barn yesterday and settled nearby, only then did I realise what was happening!

A good strong male wolf by all accounts. Pure white in colour like his father and he is very well behaved. I think I will keep him, perhaps even find him his own mate when he has grown! The Mother seemed happy to leave him with me, so he can come around the farm with me while i do my chores and perhaps even leave the safety of the walls when I go out hunting. If he wants too.

I have managed to make myself a new bed from the left overs of the barn making, as well taking time to paint something for my little house. It is not much, but it has made it feel a little more homely. I might make some new seating next as my little chair is not the comfiest when I am sat alone in the evenings whilst staring into the fireplace.

For now though, sleep is calling me. I am too sad for many words, my mind is confusing me.

I am so angry right now, I know that tomorrow I will barely be able to read this scrawl tomorrow as I am writing it so angrily. I almost swore twice, out loud, that is how angry I am! I do NOT cuss. That is for sailors and drunk men. But aarrgghhh.... I am SO ANGRY!!!

I was happily building my new egg barn. Yes again. And I heard his voice over the implant. I held fast, and I playfully asked if he needed help, which he surprisingly replied too. I nearly fell off my ladder that I was on at the time at getting such a speedy response from him and a pleasant one at that! He said he would like my help as long as it wasn't a barn! I guess he has heard about my fabulous new Big Red Barn! Wait till he see's the new house i plan on making this week.

At the time when I offered I was busy myself, having done as much as I could too the new extension I knew I had an egg about to hatch so I had to deal with that first then I planned on going straight over to whatever he was doing to see if I could help.

Before I was ready, he came over the implant again announcing that he was finished. I grumbled a bit but replied I would come straight over to see this new fishing area that he had made for us all. As I received no reply I assumed he had left, which was perfect. Hearing him was difficult enough, seeing him would send me over the edge I fear and make all the damn feelings come back that i had pushed aside. His 'friend' had told me how he was with no one and had no interest in anyone as well. He had explained that he was married to his work and he was probably too old for me as he was an undetermined age. He also mentioned that he wasn't really all there and napped a lot and I should really not show any interest in him at all and just forget the feelings i had. So that is what I tried to do.

Nope.

He was there, on the new Fishing dock, and happily chatting away to me and showing me everything. Getting excited at his new place and I was more than willing to be shown around and being around him is so relaxing and just makes me so happy.

I spent a while with him, longer than needed and came home. Immediately I was angry with myself. So damn angry. REALLY ANGRY!!! I should of stayed away. I should of listened to my head and not my heart and kept away! I shall not bother him again, I shall stay away. I might even destroy my new painting i did of the Volcano!

I have left the safety of the Farm.

I am unsure if this was the best idea as I am completely out of my comfort zone, but along with a few others I have decided to venture out and seek out other lands. We found some... after a rough journey, I have made land. I am keeping close to Him and helping where I can. Now that I have a handful of animals that seem willing to help if I feed them and offer shelter I can start to accumulate materials for anyone that needs them.

I must venture back very soon though to check on my dinosaurs. I am certain they can fend for themselves to a degree, but they will still need a little help.

I have fashioned some sort of structure to call home, and I have turned my attention too the water to create some sort of floating platform that I can use to scout out the area. He seems well adapted to this sort of life and he excels in all that he puts his hand too, whether that is getting animals to help him, collecting the necessary fibers to make clothing or even hunting for foods. The ocean appears to be his forte as he has amassed what I can only call a platoon of marine life!

Well, I must head off as I am needed to assist Him in gaining the trust of a large bird that he claims he saw over the mainland.

I am still not completely happy being on these new lands, everything seems to strong and angry!

Every which way I turn I am running away from something or hiding in a dark corner waiting for my Knight in Shining armour to come rescue me, again! Which He does, under protest, but He does. Without Him I would surely have perished on this Island many moons ago. I have lost a few of my animal friends along the way too the local inhabitants but some of the others seem to quickly adapt to domestic life.

I need a bird, one of the larger ones that can carry the platforms on their backs, but I have only seen one so far and we caught that for His use. My Argentavis seems perfectly adequate for now, but I would love to be able to be more independent. I know how busy He is, and I hate asking for help all the time, though He seems quite tolerant of me for now.

I have met my old Tribe friend as well, he has settled close to snow again which I know he misses from the other Island that we called home for such a long time. He has recently come to the shores of my little Island, which is quite some distance away, and he SWAM the whole way from the very South and West of these lands... I reside in the North East! He is such an amazing friend, and he had Keegh with him, my old bear, so it was such a relief to see him again too.

He also acquired a little friend along the way that is going to stay with me for a while, a Doed, which means I can now fully protect our little house with some walls to offer some form of defence from all these meat eaters around us.

Well, I must rest now, lots of work to do tomorrow. Hopefully I will not need to bother Him too much from now on.

I have decided to move my little settlement. As lovely as it is here on the Beach, I am just not protected enough.

Some one stole all my gasoline and I risked losing all my animals because their meat was turning as they sat in Fridges with no power! I have been attacked from the cliff edge and from the front, so I am going to find somewhere on the mainland to make a home.

I almost have a full contingency of workers now, I just need some thing that can help with the wood collecting and I am sorted! I have now got one of the large Quetzal birds which will make the move a little easier, though moving Billy Bronto might take a long time. I wonder if I could make some sort of floating device that could take his weight? I shall research this idea further!

For now though, my time will be spent scouting out various areas for a suitable location before I start staking a claim.

I have found the perfect place to start again. I have acquired the trust of a little creature that seems adapt at both land and sea and he can collect wood extremely fast! For this reason, and for some of my other creatures, we have decided to build a new home by a lake. At least here they can swim if they want too but they are safe from many of the Ocean predators.

I am not sure yet what to do with the old place, as I could definitely use the materials if I tore it all down, at the same time it would be nice to have a Beach house to go back too when needed. I shall have to think about it some more before I do anything too drastic.

These new lands are extremely quiet. I have not seen nor heard from anyone in many days now and before I would of worried, but now I am minding my own business. If they need me, they know where I am. I am taking advantage of the quiet by getting on with my day and just getting my head down. I have even found the time to venture into a cave on my own with my lovely Bear companion... although he did find himself in a bit of a sticky situation down there after eating too much and getting himself completely stuck!

I have had to leave him down there for now but I ensured he had plenty of food and I keep going down to check on him... daft bear.

I have managed to coax a few of my animals too the new place, now to convince the rest of them!
