FC: Linda's Diary
2: Biff at home after his trip from Texas.
3: Dear Diary, Spring has come, and so has Biff. He just came back from Texas, just like he always does every spring. Why can't he just get a steady job? One that is good and that will allow him to settle down and have his own family. I feel like it has something to do with Willy, but I just can't get myself to ask him; both, Biff and Willy, already have enough to worry about. It must be that time when Biff went to Boston. I still remember; such a chaotic day is hard to forget. Bernard had come and told me that Biff had flunked math. I didn't pay much mind into it since he could just take summer course and still be able to get into university. We'd manage somehow, but after he came back from Boston, he was a totally different boy. He was more depressed; his eyes showed betrayal and hurt; and yet I couldn't do anything about it, even been his mother. Oh, where did I go wrong? What did I do to make my boy look so miserable? | March 3rd, 1949
4: Willy and Biff showing their affections for each other. And how things were good once upon a time.
5: Dear Diary, Everything is going better; after Biff and Happy talked with Willy, everything seems to be getting better. Tonight, Biff and Willy talked together at the table; once again, the whole family was sitting together at the table just to talk. Everything seemed so perfect, so peaceful, like nothing could go wrong. Biff was talking about how he would go talk to Oliver tomorrow to see if he could get a job, a steady job! And Happy also came up with a plan of his own. But not everything ended like it should have. I was so overjoyed at this that I just couldn't help myself in putting my two cents in. Every time I talked, Willy would shout at me, but I was fine with it, because seeing all my boys talking together once again was a great sight. I understand Biff's intentions, but if he would've just gone along and not go against his father like that, the night would've ended perfectly. Are all this problems because of me then? If I would've not interrupted their conversations like that, would the night have ended more peacefully? | March 4rth, 1949
6: The anger I'm feeling right now.
7: Dear Diary, I can't believe I have these animals as my sons. They dare leave poor Willy alone in the restaurant, even after they made the appointment of having a peaceful dinner with him. Willy just came back, he was more broken than any other time, more lost than any other day. He is currently in the backyard trying to plant seeds, even though we all know that sun light does not reach there anymore. Oh m poor Willy, what have they done to you? Something terrible must've happened, something horrible in which made Biff and Happy leave him there. No matter, even if something did happen, no body would be heartless enough to just leave his own sick father alone in a restaurant. | March 5th, 1949
8: Feeling so very lonely ever since Willy left.
9: Dear Diary, I'm devastated; I don't know what to do anymore. Willy is gone, the man I love is dead. How could I keep going on like this? How could you do this to me, Willy? How could you just go and leave me all alone in this dark horrible world? God, I was so scared when Willy did not answer back when I called for him. I was even more terrified when the engine just roared and the most frightening thing was the screeching outside the house. After Willy's death, the insurance company gave us money, enough money to cover all our debts. Biff has started working; he is make real money now. And Happy, Happy is same old. Me? I don't even know anymore. | March 6th, 1949
