FC: The journal of crispin | by: Allison Simons
1: this journal belongs to Crispin ( a.k.a Asta's son)
2: Dear Journal,My name is Asta’s son They call me that because I have no name and my mother was Asta. I am about thirteen years old. I have no family now that my mother died. This was a tragic day for me. Even though the villagers made fun of her she was in my mind a woman of beauty. Today I am in the back of the church where they bury peasants digging a hole with the priest.
3: Dear Journal, I have been on the run for quite some time now and I have met this juggler named bear who now owns me. I will travel around with him and help him with his performances. He has asked me to make music but I don't know how.This is going to be a problem because i don't want to be owned and someone might take me and kill me because I am a wolf's head and I will never be free.
4: Dear Journal, I am so glad I can finally allowed to go inside a church and pray again like normal people but then i heard someone yell “Get him!” I ran for my life and didn't look back the stewards men were chasing me until i heard a voice yell my name i thought i was dreaming until i realized it was bear!
5: Dear Journal,this is very confusing my father was told to be dead but now I have learned that my father is Lord Furnival! He was planning to kill my mother but he let her go because she was pregnant, but not just pregnant, pregnant with me! Oh bear knew this all along. He didn't tell me to protect me because if lady furnival knew I was alive she would probably try and kill me! Oh why does this have to be so confusing.
6: Dear Journal,This is so happy I'm finally free! I am not dead and I am not on the run. Bear has freed me and i am so happy. I am no longer Asta’s son I now know my real name it is Crispin. I know that many people would probably still think the name is too noble for me but I am Crispin.
7: If i could meet the main character, crispin i would not enjoy the experience because he is a bit too religious for my tastes. I have nothing wrong with religion i just am not religious myself. If the book and crispin were not so religious i would probably enjoy it a lot more.
