~~ Diary of Lily-Rose ~~17 March, 1926
~morning~ Today is my birthday! I wonder what Mama will give me! I'm SOOO excited! :P
~afternoon~ You won't believe what I got! A PUPPY! I named him Oreo (they are so delicious and sweet) and he's a chocolate lab. He is very energetic and fun to play with. It's getting late so I'd better snuggle up with Oreo.

~morning~ I am stranded in a big, confusing forest. It is in the middle of nowhere! Someone came and took Mama!! Tomorrow I will set out to find her, though I am not sure how. Oreo is being very consoling and affectionate to me, so I am very grateful for that. All I managed to pack before escaping to here from the kidnapper was a rucksack with some berries and sandwiches, a sleeping bag, a first aid kit, some things for Oreo and a little tent.
~afternoon~ I have set up the tent and am sitting inside my sleeping bag in it and having a sandwich, Oreo is in his bed and having a little dog snack. I hope it doesn't rain. I just zipped up the tent and I think it would be best if I go to bed now.

~morning~ Luckily it didn't rain lastnight so the tent is nice and dry. Oreo is a little restless, so I intend to walk him and look for mother today. If unsucsessful, I will retire here and think out a new plan.
~afternoon~ My search was unsucsessful, I thought the kidnapper might have hidden her somewhere in this forest. I wonder where she could be? Well, early to bed and early to rise as the saying says. I will pack up the tent tomorrow and try to get out of this forest.

~morning~ I was packing up the tent when I heard a little whimper from behind a bush. I checked it out, and it was a baby fox. It was stuck in a thorn bush! I pulled it out, put bandages on its wounds and called it Zoe. Now there is a new addition to the team!
~afternoon~ I managed to find my way to the edge of the forest, but couldn't get any further as there was a wall of thorns blocking the way out. Near the wall is a little cottage that's empty. I went inside and it is in good condition so I decided we should stay here till we find mother.There was an extra mattress as well as a bed in the cottage so everyone can sleep comfortably with me in the bed and Oreo and Zoe sharing the matress. Luckily they have warmed up to each other.

~morning~ I woke up to the noise of dripping water. There was a leak in the roof. Apparently it rained last night. We are going to try get through the wall of thorns as I found a knife in the cottage.
~afternoon~ I managed to cut a hole in the thorn wall just big enough for us to squeeze through. Once out of the woods I took in my surroundings. I was in a little abandoned, run-down village. I decided to search the ruins. In one of the little houses I saw a figure in a black cloak. They asked who I was and guess what? It was mother!!! We checked a map she had and found our way home. Once safely home I aske her all about what happened. We shared our adventures with each other and were fascinated by what happened.
