FC: When I'm Dieing From The Black Plague
1: When Dieing From the Black Plague | By: Lera Cordner Kaitlyn Miller
2: Dear Diary October 24, 1342 | Hi, my name is Abigail Miller. MY family and I work on a mill farm. My brother's names are Eric and Nathan Miller. It's fall outside, and, I have to work on the farm.
3: I am sweating in my clothes while I'm working on the farm again. My brothers are helping me harvesting crops. My dad is selling wheat for the knights, and lords. It's getting cold and dark outside, so I have to get inside, because I have to cook dinner for my dad and brothers.
4: Dear Diary October 25, 1342 | I got woken up by my younger brother Nathan. He says that someones at the door, and dads outside working.
5: "The Beak" | I answered the door, and the person was telling me and my family that there is this spreadable plague called the Bubonic Plague or the Black Plague. He wanted to check if we had it. He was wearing a weird outfit called "The Beak".
6: Dear Diary October 26, 1342 | When I went to work in the farm land. Then my neighbor started talking to me. I was having a conversation with my neighbor. I think he had the Bubonic Plague (The BLack Plague), because he was coughing, had black ugly spots on his body, and he was also vomiting.
7: I'm sorry but I have to conclude this conversation. So after the conversation I took him to his house and called the doctor, and the doctor said he has the disease and he is dead.
8: Dear Diary October 27 1342 | We have just been told that my younger brother Nathan had gotten the plague. the doctor says it is not too bad yet so he can stay home for a little bit longer.
9: Since my dad and my older brother Eric works out on the mill and my mom just died from the plague, so I have to take care of Nathan.
10: Dear Diary October 28, 1342 | I was woken up by Eric. He said that he had to work on the mill and there was some one at the door I might want to see. So I answered it.
11: It was the Doctor. He came to check on the family. He discovered that I had the plague too.
12: Dear Diary October 29, 1342 | Apparently my dad had the plague too and nobody knew, he has just died, and now Eric takes care of us and still works on the farm.
13: Every day it is worse. I get the shivers, and I have a fever. The doctor comes and checks on us every day.
14: Dear Dairy October 30, 1342 | The doctor came today and said that Nathan is better and will not die. He also said that I am getting worse.
15: Today I have pounding headaches and buboes (black sores). I am also coughing and vomiting blood.
16: Dear Diary October 31, 1342 | I am growing weaker and I can not stand. When ever I ask the doctor how I'm doing he gives me a look and does not answer.
17: He did the same thing to my parents. I had the plague for 3 days this is when most people with it die. Ugh I feel that this is the last you will be hearing from me well this is good bye forever.
18: Hey it's Eric so now that Abigail is gone I will end the story. | A COUPLE YEARS LATER
19: So Abigail died and Nathan and I are just fine. We are all very sad.
