Day 27

Page_13

Dear Diary

I’m so tired so I’m just going to give you a blow by blow recount on what happened. We’ll start with Felicia and I talking about what we’d do to find Charlie today.

“Minecraft Steve, how long are we going to stay here and look for Charlie and FC?” Felicia asked. She’d seemed a bit sad today.

“I’m not stopping until I find them.”

“We can’t stay here forever.”

“I can’t go and live back there knowing they’re in here somewhere waiting to be found. It’s because of me they’re here.”

“But without you, none of us would have found each other and been friends so knowing you isn’t all bad.” She was teasing to cheer me up, and herself, I think. It had been ages since we’d relaxed and had some fun.

“I’ve been thinking. The safest place for Charlie to wait for us would be with other chickens. If Herobrine came looking he wouldn’t know it was Charlie if he didn’t speak. FC could go into hiding anywhere and never be found, you know how he is. But he’d be somewhere he could keep an eye on Charlie and wait for us.”

That made a lot of sense to me, Diary. More sense than anything else we’d come with so far.

“So we need to find some chickens, and not ones with Baby Zombie Pigmen riding them.”

“But that might be a good place to start.” Felicia smiled.

“No sign of Herobrine either. I keep expecting him to be everywhere.”

“Maybe that’s his game this time. Keep you worried about it.”

“This is where I miss FC. No one can get info on Herobrine like he can.” We were all such a great team together.

“We better go find them then and we can all go home.”

We walked back the way we’d gone when we’d seen the chicken jockeys. It was quite a way. The furthest we’d been yet but we had a lot of good supplies with us.

“Over there.” Felicia pointed and I saw a Chicken Jockey run past. I still had to smile.

“Let’s go and look over that ridge there.” I could see what looked like a small hill in the shorter distance. “Maybe there’s something over it.”

“It’s risky but we have to do it.” Felicia marched off towards the ridge. “Watch the uneven ground.”

I already was. It was hard to see holes and such. Once we got up the small ridge we looked over the other side.

“Yay! There’s heaps of chickens down there. Charlie is bound to be there.”

“There’s heaps of Zombie Pigmen as well.” I was a little worried.

“Just don’t accidentally hit one and we’ll be fine.”

“Still makes me nervous.”

“Do you want to find Charlie and FC or not?”

“Of course I do.”

The ground evened out as we got closer and we walked through the Zombie Pigmen towards the biggest group of chickens. “Charlie. Charlie, are you here?”

“Minecraft Steve! Felicia! It’s about time you got here.” A familiar looking chicken came flapping up to us. “Hahahaha. I was joking. Thanks so much for coming. I was beginning to think I was a normal chicken again and you don’t know how much I was worried that one of those weird baby creatures was going to start riding me.”

“Charlie!” Felicia and I both cried out together.

“Oh, Man, it’s so good to see you.” I ruffled his tail feathers the way I knew he hate. “You’re my best friend and don’t you ever disappear on me again. My life sucks without you.” I gave him a one-armed hug.

“I’ve been telling you that for ages.” He gave his odd little chicken-laugh.

“Where’s FC?”

“Off finding out information. You know him. He’ll find us before we go back. Have you got a portal?”

“Yeah. We built another close to where you went through and it hooked up close to where you landed.”

“Sweet.”

The Zombie Pigmen milled around us and went about doing not much except get in our way. I noticed that there seemed a whole lot more of them than before. “We better get out of here. If we accidentally hit one of these Pigmen, they’ll all attack us.”

I looked around and Felicia was already halfway back through the pack. “Right behind you, Felicia.”

She turned to wave and I saw an awful look on her face, Diary.

“Look out behind you!”

“Too late, Minecraft Steve.” That chilling voice was Herobrine.

“Run, Charlie, follow Felicia.”

Charlie took off. Chickens certainly had speed. I was about to turn and face Herobrine ready to fight him when he grabbed my arm from behind.

“This is going to be such fun. Let’s play with the pigmen.”

I was no match for Herobrine’s strength with his two hands on my one arm and quick as a flash, he pushed my arm out and smashed the nearest Zombie Pigman in the face a few times.

“Bye, Minecraft Steve. You can thank me later for all the fun.” I began to back away from the advancing pigmen and Herobrine had just disappeared

“Run, Minecraft Steve. Draw your sword and run as you hit them. I’ll shoot arrows from here and clear a path for you.” Felicia yelled out to me and though it seemed an impossible task in a sea of attacking Zombie Pigman, I did my best anyway. If I was going down, I was going down fighting.

We never gave up, Diary, and that’s why I’m here at home, writing in you again. Herobrine tricked me good and proper but with the help of FC running through the mob of Zombie Pigmen and knocking many of them down, as well as them thinking he was going to explode, Felicia’s excellent arrow skills, and Charlie’s fast running to keep himself from being trampled, we all got back home safely.

I don’t ever want to do that again, Diary. For the next few days we’ll be relaxing here in our safe city and enjoying our friendship. So good to have the gang all back together again.

Day 25

Dear Diary

No more feathers today. I’m so sad. I had my hopes very high thinking I’d be seeing my friends today for sure. But I didn’t. Tomorrow we will go out in another direction from the portal room we have. Maybe the feathers got moved from the real trail and there’s more out there somewhere.

I just think it makes sense that Charlie would try and signal us somehow. What really worries me is that Herobrine has already been here and found them first. Felicia say that thinking like that won’t help. She’s right. I know. It’s just hard sometimes to believe in the best.

I guess all we can do is pop back through the portal for more supplies and then come back and keep on looking. I’ll never give up on them.


Day 26

Page_12

It’s almost time to go out again, Diary. I didn’t write much yesterday and I just wanted to say that I’m hoping so hard that we get a good lead on Charlie today. I’m really, really worried that he and FC have met with something awful and we won’t ever be able to bring them home again.

I never got the chance to tell Charlie how much I love him. I did have lots of chances but you know, no one talks about their feelings, Diary. It’s just the way it is. But if I never see Charlie again I just wanted it on record that I do love and miss the little guy. A lot. There. I said it. Oh, and Friendly Creeper…you’ve been an awesome friend.

I mean, really, really awesome. Creepers are the bad guys; you know? All that running at things and blowing up. I know, it’s what they do and it’s nothing personal, FC taught me that, but it’s very inconvenient all the same…anyway…FC you’re a stand up dude who knows the true meaning of friendship. Who else who throw themselves in the Nether to help a friend out? Love ya, man.

Time to go, Diary. Talk soon.

Well, diary, I’m back. Just. If I’d known what was waiting out there I may not have gone out to look for Charlie and FC. Okay, I still would have. Would’ve been much easier to get through a Blaze attack and a skeleton attack, and just when I thought I’d found Charlie at last, I discover these weird little critters called Chicken Jockeys. Baby Zombie Pigmen riding around on chickens which did not look as cute as you’d think it might, Diary.

Seriously weird, Diary, and very disappointing. I saw chickens and I was sure Charlie would be there somewhere. But he wasn’t. Felicia ran out of arrows but we’ve been back through our portal to get more supplies. I’m going to eat heaps and get some rest and then I’m heading right back out. Now I know there are other chickens here, I know Charlie is out there somewhere. I have to find him; I just have too.

Day 24

Page_11

Dear Diary

Hooray! Today I found two feathers, and Felicia found three. We think Charlie might have left us a trail. The only problem is these feathers didn’t seem to be heading anywhere. Felicia said chickens can live in the Nether and hatch from eggs, so it may not even be Charlie.

But I’m going to keep hoping it is and that if we keep going we’ll find more and eventually we’ll find our friends.

No sign of anything scary today either. There were some Ghasts but they never saw us. I did see one of the funniest things I’ve ever seen. A Zombie Pigman. What a weird looking critter. Half pig, half zombie and they are actually quite peaceful. They don’t attack you unless they have a good reason, but if you hit one of them you get the whole bunch to deal with.

They hung around us a lot, but we managed to not accidentally hit them with anything. Felicia pointed out a few more things when we were in hiding behind a wall I’d built. Wither skeletons that can make your heart go black and there were things called Blazes. She also warned me about the Skeletons and Magma Cubes.

Diary, you know how scared I am of meeting up with the hostile mobs here, right? Almost as scared as meeting up with Herobrine. I just want to find my talking chicken friend and Friendly Creeper and get back to our city.

I really hope these feathers mean something, Diary. I hope to have Charlie back annoying me any day now. It’s been so boring and lonely without him. I really, really miss my friend and I know I need to tell him how much he means to me as soon as I can.

Day 23

Page_10

Wooo! It’s awesome the way Felicia and I fought off all the Ghasts. Okay, Diary, it was mostly Felicia and her unreal arrow skills. I can’t count the amount of times she sent those fireballs right back at them. We also got to collect some amazing loot once it was safe to go out. Here’s how it went…

“Don’t move yet.” Felicia held me back by the arm.

“I think we’re on solid ground.”

“You need to look carefully. It might be a ledge.”

“Okay. I never thought of that.”

“Disable the portal.” Felicia took a step forward and another.

“Wait. Let’s check if this is a good place and I’ll build a wall to cover. We need to get some cobblestone through before we turn it off.” I really didn’t want to let the portal go out, Diary. It felt good knowing I could just go back.

“You’re right. I’m so scared, I don’t think my mind is working right.” Felicia let out a deep breath. “Anyway, it looks good here. But we’re too much in the open and that leaves us in danger of – ”

“Fireball coming from left!” My screaming the words interrupted Felicia but they never stopped her being as quick as a flash with her arrow. That fireball went right back to where it came from.

“Wow! That was amazing…”

“Build the wall! We don’t know how many Ghasts there are.”

“Right. I grabbed some cobblestone to start. I opened the chest we’d managed to lug through with us. I’d build around the portal to protect it and give up some shelter. The Nether had an eerie glow. There was enough light to see but I wouldn’t call it bright.

I did know there were glow stone bricks here and I’d like to collect some to take home after we find Charlie and FC.

“How’s it going, Felicia?”

“So far just the one Ghast. He must have been a random one floating about.”

“How did you know about shooting the arrow and sending the fireball back?”

“You can do it with anything if you get it in the right place, even your fist although I don’t recommend it. If you don’t hit it just right, it can be fatal. But you can use an axe.”

“You’ve been here before?”

She nodded. “I was stuck here for a long time.”

Poor Felicia, Diary. She must’ve been so scared. No wonder she’s such a brave person…I kept building. The sooner she felt safe the better.

“I’m going for a short look. See if I can spot anything.”

“Be careful, Felicia.”

“I will. I know what I’m doing.”

“As soon as this is done, I’ll bring through the rest of our supplies and weapons. Then I’ll disable the portal.”

“Sure. Keep an eye out for anything. Just call me if you’re worried.” Felicia offered her help as always.

“I will.” I meant that. I’d stopped trying to do everything for myself. Teamwork was the way to go, Diary.

It was only a couple of hours and Felicia and I sat in out fort and ate the food we’d brought through. We were both starving from all the work we’d done. The portal was turned off and though Felicia hadn’t found any signs of Charlie and FC, she thought we were in a pretty good place.

“I might go explore a little further.” I said to Felicia. Of course, she wasn’t letting me go out alone.

“I had hoped that Charlie would be close, if this portal came close to where he landed.” Felicia told me.

“I think he’d look for safe shelter so let’s hope he found one not too far from here.”

I wish we could communicate with something here. Surely a creeper isn’t something you see every day here in the Nether.

“Doubtful we’ll get that lucky. Let’s just go look. Charlie is clever, he’d have known you would come find him.” Felicia fixed her bow and arrows on her back.

“I’m happy to know he didn’t land in a lava lake or anything.”

“Me too.”

Well, Diary, we didn’t find much and we needed some sleep and more food. So we came back in for a rest. Tomorrow, we’ll be taking plenty of supplies and widening or search. We will find them. I just hope nothing scary finds us and especially not Herobrine.

Day 22

This is it, Diary. The day is here. Just writing quick line just in case I don’t get back. I want everyone to know where I went. I am taking a diary with me but I’m leaving this one behind in case something happens and anyone ever comes looking to see where I’ve gone.

Hopefully, that someone won’t be Herobrine. No, I had better stop worrying about him. He would already know that I’d be going to the Nether to find my buddies and if he thinks he can come here and destroy anything while I’m gone, then my people might give him something to change his mind.

With this super wall, Iron Golems, our city army, and as much weaponry as any could possibly make, I know the city will protect itself very well. But then Herobrine is at home in the Nether, so perhaps it’s there he means to strike and do away with me for good.

Even though this could mean certain death, I still have to go because I can’t let Charlie and FC down.

They’ve been there for me through some of my worst times and all of my happiest times here in Minecraft world. This is why even if it means putting myself in danger, I am still going to find my friends.

I think I will take you with me, Diary. As a symbol that I am coming back, we’re all coming back together and I’ll get to continue on until your last page is filled. Then I’ll start a new diary again. Okay. Here we go. I will be writing in you again soon. I’ll try and update when we land in the Nether or I’ll write in once we’re somewhere safe and I have time. Wish us luck, Diary. I think we’re going to need it.


Day 22…Again

Page_09

What a day. Felicia and I were pretty happy because the day started out so well. Our good day began when I’d finished writing in you this morning and I’d tucked you into my backpack.

Felicia came to tell me something that made my smile a mile wide across my face.

“Minecraft Steve! Guess what I’ve just been told about the Nether?”

I thought it must be good because Felicia looked very happy and I knew she was just as worried about Charlie and FC as I was. “What? Is it about Charlie and FC? Are they back?”

She shook her head. “No, but if you build a portal close to the one Herobrine wrecked, we have a good chance of landing in the same place they did.”

“Really? How?” This was very good news if it was true.

She nodded. “Yeah. I know you were going to build a hidden portal because of Herobrine…”

“That’s pointless because if he wants to find us in the Nether, he will. This might even be a trap to get us all there.”

Felicia wasn’t smiling now. “I thought of that too. What will we do, Minecraft Steve?”

“We forget about Herobrine and go find our friends. If Herobrine is coming, then he can face us all together.”

“I was hoping you’d say that.”

“Let’s go test out this theory. We’ll need to break the portal so nothing else comes through though. Last thing we need are lost city people wandering around to save, or a mob of skeletons.”

“We better build a wall around it then because we’ll probably need to come back through to get extra supplies.” Felicia made a good point.

Whatever we found in the Nether, we’d need cobblestone and there wasn’t any in the Nether, or so I’d been told. “Right. Let’s get started then. I’ll have the miners bring us some cobblestone. We can carry our bow and arrows through with us.”

“Let’s hope we land somewhere safer than a lava lake.” Felicia frowned for a second and then looked at me. “Have you ever been there before?”

I shook my head, Diary, because you know I’ve never, ever been brave enough to go there before. I always made up an excuse to others and to myself about why. I’m too busy. Someone else needs me. I have things to look after. But now? …now, I had to go. I couldn’t make any excuses and I didn’t want to.

Day 21

Page_08

Dear Diary

I don’t think I’ve had a worse 2 days in my life. Worrying about Charlie and FC in the Nether with no protection is all I’ve done. No, not all, Diary. You’ll be pleased that I didn’t do what I did before and give up. I turned to Felicia and the people of the city for help and we finished the wall.

I know I shouldn’t feel so happy because my 2 friends may be gone forever because of me, but this wall is amazing. It’s not just the wall, it’s because we all did it together. Even when things went a little wrong, we managed to get through and make it happen. I’m very proud of the city people. There’s seriously no way any mobs can spawn anywhere inside the walls or get past this wall.

As a huge team, we’ve done an amazing job. The people still say they could not do it all without me because I came up with the idea and have designed the whole thing. I’ve worked hard every minute that I could and I didn’t take any shortcuts. I have learned that doing something really well the first time is the best way to go. Then I hardly ever have to spend more time later to fix it up.

I need sleep now, Diary.

Day 18

Day 18

Dear Diary

I think today could be the worst day of my life because I lost my best friend. Charlie, he’s gone and I think I have a broken heart, and lots of anger, Diary. Lots. Here’s what happened.

(Oh, Diary, if I never write in you again you’ll know it’s because I went to search for Charlie in the Nether and never returned.)

FC came running up to me about midday yesterday. Everyone around me scattered because they thought he was going to explode. But I know FC would never do that.

“Minecraft Steve! Herobrine knows what you’re doing…and…”

“He’s here…” That was Herobrine who said that. He stood about fifty steps away and he had Charlie held up by the tail feathers.

We were just outside the wall. Herobrine’s white eyes glowed evil and his grin was not funny at all.

I’ve never been so scared in my life, Diary. Never. What was he going to do with Charlie? Felicia was beside me and I have no idea where FC had run to. All the people had moved to get back inside the City and behind the wall.

“So Minecraft Steve. You think you’re pretty good building a wall to protect your city like that? It’s not quite done yet, is it?” Behind him I could see a portal into the Nether. What did he build that there for?

“Herobrine, I’m not hurting you. Go away and leave us alone. We’re peaceful.”

Herobrine laughed his evil laugh. “Mwahahaha….NO.” He lifted Charlie up and down.

Felicia gripped her sword next to me. “Put the chicken down.”

“No.”

“Don’t do anything to hurt Charlie, or I’ll – ”

“You’ll what? Hurt me? But you’re peaceful?”

I didn’t know what I was going to do, Diary. I really didn’t, but I know that Herobrine wanted to stop me finishing the wall. Charlie was wearing his small backpack that Felicia made him to carry food blocks to the farmed chickens each day. He said it made him feel useful to go there and place the blocks for them to eat when we were all busy.

Herobrine stepped to the side and behind him I could now see a portal into the Nether in full. Herobrine threw a squawking Charlie into the portal and I screamed at him to stop. But Charlie was gone. Next second FC seemed to come running out of nowhere and went right into the portal as well.

Heronbrine laughed and laughed. “You’d better leave your fancy wall and go find your talking chicken and that weird creeper.”

I was going to jump in and save them, Diary, I really was. But Felicia held my arm and told me not to go.

Then he smashed every last obsidian block and destroyed the portal. “Too slow.”

Then Herobrine ran into the forest laughing. “If you leave this city unprotected I will come and destroy it and everything in it.” He called back.

What was I supposed to do, Diary?

“I have to build a portal and go to the Nether.” I told Felicia.

“You need to finish the wall first, Minecraft Steve. He’s trying to get you away from here because he knows once it’s finished it’ll be the best thing ever built in Minecraft.”

“But Charlie and FC will die in the Nether.”

“Trust them, Minecraft Steve. FC will help him. Charlie can build a shelter and they’ll find some light. He has food blocks. Finish the wall. We’ll all work twice as hard to help you. Make sure everything is secure and then we’ll go and find them.”

“What if they went through into a lava pool or something?”

“Then we can’t help that anyway and it’s no point leaving all this work and having the city and people destroyed as well while you go and find out. A portal now could take you anywhere in the Nether and you’ll have to search for them.”

“Okay. You’re right.” She was right, Diary, but again I didn’t have to like it.

“Charlie wouldn’t want you to put the whole city in danger just to save him. He’s not a selfish chicken. Trust that they can keep themselves alive long enough for us to get there.”

So, Diary, here I am scared silly that Charlie and FC are hurt or worse. But I just need one more day for the wall to be completed and all the protection elements will be in place, with guards, Iron Golems, and the people all looking out for each other.

Diary, as soon as I can, I am going to the Nether and I’m bringing Charlie and FC home…I hope I’m back with great news soon. Bye Diary. I hope not forever.

Day 15

Dear Diary

I’m here to make a quick update, Diary. We’ve done it, at last. With four days’ work, the last layer of cobblestone is going on today and then I’ll be inspecting the whole thing and placing torches around the top. The light will keep us safe from the bad mobs that try to get into the city.

This is very exciting, Diary, and the people in the city are all very happy. We’ve made and put in huge iron gates and doors. There’s even quite a few more Iron Golems now to protect the people and their children. Once this wall is done, Diary, the city will be the best. I gotta go FC says Herobrine and Notch are close to finishing their challenge.

I don’t doubt he’ll be coming straight here, Diary. See ya.

Day 15 – 2

Dear Diary

I’m writing this in before I go out and get all the torches in place around the top of the wall. It’s an awesome structure. The best thing I’ve ever built here. It’s the thing I’m proudest of, along with the mine.

We really need a moat too, just to make it harder to cross or to make it harder to tunnel under. Going under is our biggest threat, but someone would really have to want to get in badly to do that. I can only think of one person who would consider doing that.

Okay, Diary. Felicia and I are going to get the final checks on the wall and torches done today. Better get going before she’s calling me.

Day 11

Day 11

Dear Diary

I can’t believe it’s been three whole days since I’ve written anything. Things have happened so fast. We have a half of the city now working the mine into an open cut to avoid cave-ins and also carting the cobblestone, iron, coal and anything else back to the city to be made into all sorts of things. No diamonds yet but you never know.

I had to come and let you know, and as a reminder to myself, how great this feels, that we made our first fifty bricks of Obsidian today and laid our first foundation stones for the wall. The loudest cheer I’ve ever heard and a bunch of the guys put me up on their shoulders and marched me around.

It’s them doing most of the work and that is creating more work and the city is getting richer and richer. So many people have come and told me that being a part of protecting what’s theirs and share in the work has made them the happiest they’ve ever been

Diary, why didn’t I see this before? Why didn’t I see what was right before my eyes? I was so worried about them not being capable of looking after themselves that I never gave them the chance to do it.

They’ve organized themselves into shifts of watches during the day and nights, and even I feel safer. Yes, Diary, I think I was a little annoyed that the city might actually be able to survive without me. It made me feel a little less special for a short time. But I’m over that now.

The only way Herobrine will be able to get into this city will be by tunneling under the wall. He’d better be fast because I’m planning to pave inside the city grounds with Obsidian as well.

No one has been hurt and everyone is following the directions to be safe. I’m very proud of the city people, Diary. I’m also very proud of Charlie and Felicia and of FC who brings news back of Herobrine and Notch who are in a building war clear across the realm.

At this rate, with all these workers, we’ll have the wall built in another two weeks, then we can put on the overhang blocks along the top, the torches and make the steel doors and gates. After a rest week, we’ll get to work digging a wide moat. Then none of the mobs can get in if they come. Not one.

Only Herobrine and we might put a stop to him as well. It feels pretty good, Diary. Pretty good, for sure. I hope I can get back to write in you soon, and I hope it’s to tell exciting news of how we’re going and not about anything bad happening.

Even Charlie the talking chicken was being so clever and organizing groups to make sure everything ran smoothly and everyone who wasn’t working on the wall somehow still had things to do.

He kept the farmers going and made sure there was enough food for the city, and he even learned how to build a small shelter himself. I’ve never seen Charlie so proud. Also he’d come up with a great idea for feeding the farmed chickens making the trek around the chicken farms less often.

What he did was make…well, Diary he worked out how it could be done and asked someone with arms for help…solid food blocks packed with wheat and seeds. They lasted the chickens longer which left people more time to spend looking after the city and working on the wall with me.

I didn’t realize how clever Charlie is and now I feel bad about making him feel useless. I guess everything has its usefulness, Diary. We just have to find the thing they are good at and give them a little help. Right, I have to get some sleep because we’re laying Obsidian three blocks high all the way around tomorrow and we’re not stopping until it’s done.

Then it’s time for getting the cobblestone up high *yawn*….so tired, Diary. I’m out for now.

Day 7

Day 7

Dear Diary

It’s been four days and I’ve done nothing but sit in a darkened room and wait for Herobrine to turn up and challenge me again. I know the challenge will be a trick and he’ll somehow wreck as much of this city as possible. Charlie says I shouldn’t be focusing on that; I should be doing what I want to do.

Diary, I know I had the people on my side and no matter if I win or lose against him, I’m still a hero in their eyes. I know that I’ve accepted that Herobrine is just plain mean and evil and there’s nothing anyone can do to change him. But I don’t have to like it, Diary. It still makes me angry sometimes.

I just want to give up and have someone protect me, and build me a fortress and a giant wall. Why do I have to be the one that does it all for the city? Okay, Diary, I know what you’d say if you could talk, the same things Felicia just came and said to me today.

“Minecraft Steve, if you give up on yourself, you may as well leave this place.”

“I’m not giving up on myself. Anyone can see the task is too big for one person. I’m just facing how it is.”

Felicia looks a little scary when she frowns that way, Diary. I know she’s mad at me for not going any further with the mine idea. I may be a hero to everyone but I’m not a superhero. Diary, you’re the only one I can tell. I’m so scared I’ll fail and that everyone will end up laughing at me or feeling sorry for me that I’d rather not try.

Charlie has given up trying to get me outside. I really don’t feel like being with anyone. I can just keep on being a hero here and never leave. That’s what I thought Diary but my friends had other ideas that I never knew about.

Felicia came and bashed on my bedroom door. “Minecraft Steve!” she yelled. “You better get outside now, Herobrine is here and he’s about to build walls across our bridges and roads so no one can get through.”

“When he’s finished I’ll destroy the walls and clean up.”

“He says he’ll never be finished until you come out and stop him. He’ll destroy the whole city.”

Diary, I should feel bad for admitting I was having a hard time caring about what happened to the city and Herobrine. “He’ll just keep coming back. It doesn’t matter what I do.”

“Minecraft Steve, please. Come and help the people, they’re all scared.”

I imagined everyone in a panic, no one able to think for themselves what to do, all waiting for the problem to be fixed for them.

Then Felicia let out a scream. “Charlie! No. Look out. He’s behind you. Run Charlie. Get out of the corner, Charlie. Herobrine is….oh no, it’s too late.”

“Back off Herobrine.” I heard Charlie say. “You can do what you want to me but you’ll never stop Minecraft Steve from being loved by the whole city and for being a better builder than you.”

“Charlie. Stop talking…he’s going to…”

Then when I heard the squawking of a chicken like I’d never heard before, I grabbed my diamond sword and raced out the door. Diary, I was feeling low but there was no way I was going to let Herobrine hurt my friends like that. I let out a huge war cry as I went to distract my enemy from hurting my friends.

Once I was out there, Diary, I saw all three, Felicia, Charlie, and FC standing in a line. “FC has some news I think you’ll like.” Felicia spoke first.

“Where’s Herobrine?” I asked.

Well, you know what they’d done, Diary. They’d tricked me and proved that I still did care about everyone and everything in this city.

“Minecraft Steve, Herobrine is going to be kept busy for at least a month.” FC spoke now. “His brother Notch is keeping him very busy.”

“Notch? I hope he isn’t as evil as his brother.” They had my attention now.

“He quite the opposite and he’s a builder. Even better than Herobrine.”

“Wow.” I couldn’t believe that.

“Don’t you get it, Minecraft Steve? He’s not going to be around for a month as they’re having their annual competition. So you can get to mining and get that wall built.”

“You guys acted all that out just to get me out of my bedroom?”

They all grinned. Crazy friends. But love them all, Diary. I know you can never tell them something so emotional, so it’s okay for me to admit it here on your pages. You know what they said to me Diary? This is what.

“We’re going to get that mine started,” Felicia stated.

“It’s no use. Even with your help I’ll never mine enough cobblestone to make the wall high enough within a month, not to mention turning lava into Obsidian for the wall base.” I shook my head. “It was a stupid idea in the first place.”

“You have hundreds of people in the city who can help.” Felicia smiled.

“What? You mean…all of them? There’s no way they’d know how to help or even want to. That’s why they have me, that’s what they’ll say. Minecraft Steve will fix it for us. Minecraft Steve will save us. Minecraft Steve will build everything we need.”

“You never give them a chance to prove they can do anything.” Charlie never looked at me as he spoke. I considered what he said, Diary, and I just wasn’t convinced.

“No one ever offers,” I said.

“They’re offering now. They want this mine as much as you do and they want to be a part of the best protective wall they’ve ever seen. Let them help you. Give them a chance. If it fails we’ve lost nothing but time and some Minecraft sweat.” Felicia began to make sense, Diary.

Maybe always relying on one person to do everything made them scared to try. “Let’s do this then. I’ll talk to the people in the morning. Everyone can help mine and build the wall.”

I really hope I’m doing the right thing, Diary. I don’t want them to think I’m treating them like slaves. Maybe they’ll hate me after all and they’ll see I’m nothing special, just plain old Steve who has a few building skills. Nothing that any one of them couldn’t do if they really wanted to.

Goodnight, Diary.
