James Botch Diary, Entry #23, 1767
I sit here writing the final entry of my life,i have just arrived back home from the year long journey to some unknown islands and back.Me and my crew went to the islands to rid of the beast that was attacking our towns and murdering our citizens.The beast killed twenty of our crew members trying to unload it from the ship onto the islands but it was worth it.The beast was a demon we tried killing it multiple times but nothing seemed to work that's why we finally captured it and took it from our home.The beast killed my entire family so to save others from it was rewarding but...The remaining words were unreadable due to scribbles and age.
Edward Bolick Scientific Journal, Entry #112, 1899
My Scientific Study's have gave me some exciting results about this creature i found in the caves of North Carolina! The creature seems to feed only on the flesh of humans and apes perhaps due to the connection between the two, although due to the sacrifice of my wife and eldest son it seems the creature prefers the flesh of males over females,i have yet to do this test with apes although i expect the same results.Although it is possible my youngest son Mark might produce some results as well, thanks to his young age.
Ethan Jamison letter to his parents, 1945
Dear Mother and Father.
I write to you to inform you that by the time you receive this i will no longer be among the living.I have suffered events that will scar me for life,scars so deep they haunt me in my dreams and every time i close my eyes the events that i saw repeat themselves.The events i am about to describe that haunt me should be taken seriously and i want you to take this letter to the local police as soon as you get done reading this. Three days earlier me and Jennie were exploring the woods trying to find some mushrooms for our stew when we spotted a hurt creature in the woods,we could not identify what kind of creature it was but we assisted it anyway as the creature did not put up any resistance as we carried it back to our house to nurture it back to full health.We kept it in the guest room in a bed on the floor Jennie made for it,for the first two days the creature put up no resistance just lying their as Jennie nurtured it's wounds and also fed it some left over pork we had from our pigs although it was reluctant to eat it.Everything was fine until yesterday,i was outside cutting wood for the fire when i heard a scream from the house, i quickly realized it was Jennie and rushed to the house.When i arrived i heard another scream but not Jennie it sounded like a high-pitched ape scream, i quickly rushed to the guest room and saw the scars that haunt me.The creature had Jennie's body on the ground as it was eating her stomach organs in which it had ripped open her stomach to get to, as soon i entered the room the creature looked over at me and immediately charged at me i quickly shut the door, but the creature easily broke through and continued to lung at me i ran down the stairs and into the main room i quickly caught the creature leaping at me and threw it against the wall.I was able to unlock the metal door to the cellar and stood in front of it wanting the creature to lung at me, when it did i was able to catch it and throw it down the cellar i quickly locked the door back and threw the key down between the cracks in the floorboard.I went and sat in the corner of the room and i have been their since, i am about to board up the windows and doors and also bury Jennie beside the house.Please inform Mark about this incident to, im sure he would want to know the fate of his daughter.
-Love, your son Ethan.
