I’m back. I was going to write in last night but we were so busy planning our next adventure, it was too late and I fell right to sleep. Well, Diary, we’re off to find a place to mine rock for cobblestone and I hope we can get deep enough to find lava and make obsidian.
Here’s how the conversation went.
“Charlie, let’s go find enough obsidian to build a great fortress for the city.” I said.
“Felicia? Will you come along? I want to make sure there’s enough protection for if I’m not around here all the time.”
“Are you thinking of moving on and starting a new village? “Felicia looked suspicious.
But I’m not thinking of doing that, am I, Diary? I don’t think so, not yet anyway.
“I bet you are.” Charlie always had an opinion.
“I want to make sure I take care of the people as much as I can. They look up to me. I want to make them happy.”
Charlie didn’t look excited about the idea. “I’ll stay here and look after them while you go find a good place to mine.”
“Friendly Creeper will help me here. I can be protective when I want.” Charlie sounded a little hurt that I didn’t think he could be that helpful.
“I’ve been thinking about this since the last time Herobrine destroyed my buildings, first by disguising himself as a Mooshroom and taking out my support beams, and then by getting creepers in to explode inside and destroy my work. This city needs to be safer.”
“Safer would be good. Herobrine will come and do stuff whenever he wants otherwise.” Felicia agreed with me at least. “Last week I heard he’d been in a new village. All their flowers were stomped on and broken and he’d burned all the trees.”
“C’mon, Charlie. Come with me. I need your help.” I gave Charlie my best begging eyes look. I really wanted to have Charlie where Felicia and I could take care of him. Chickens aren’t exactly fighting machines.
“I’m not much use for anything so you think” Charlie answered.
“I like your company and you’re fun to have around.” I tried a new way to convince him.
“Of course we’ll come.” Felicia pushed Charlie.
“Stop being a chicken.” I said to him and began clucking and flapping my arms about like I used to do to my friends who were scared to take a dare.
Charlie rolled his eyes. “You are so NOT funny.”
Then all three of us laughed.
So that was how it happened, Diary, and I’m so excited. I’ll finally be off doing something and not just sitting here waiting for Herobrine to turn up and ruin things. It’s been almost a month and he hasn’t been back but I know he’s just trying to make me sweat.
We’re leaving in the dark and I have people who’ll pretend I’m home doing the normal things with my buddies. I need to mine down to lava. So some water would be good too because putting that on the lava carefully will make Obsidian. I’ll mine the rock for cobblestone and try and get down to the lava.
It isn’t easy, and the lava could set us on fire, so we need to be very careful. Then there’s finding a way to get all that cobblestone back near the city. This was almost impossible to do for two people and a talking chicken, but I’m Minecraft Steve, the best builder here and I have to try.
Don’t worry, I’m taking you Diary. I don’t want to forget a thing about this adventure so I’ll need you around every day.
I’m so excited, and a little bit scared. Alright, a lot scared because if Herobrine finds out I’m gone, he’s sure to come on the attack and try to destroy my city.
Sometimes you have to take a chance to make things better. Talk soon, Diary. There’s a heap to do.
