Jeeko’s Journal – Entry 13
How does this keep happening? Just want to fix mistakes, keep making everything worse. Knew that stupid magic took too long, must have been a faster way. Should have urged haste, but was too busy snooping around papers. Papers! Found something useful, but what use if we fail at why we came?
So many chances, so many clues. Ignored them all. Made assumptions, could have prepared, could have made diversions, could have at least spited enemies. Instead, taken with no struggle. Disgraceful. Tribe is surely looking with shame. How will the wizard ever die if I cannot even do this?
Not all lost. Failed to search me for anything but my sword. Wonder why everyone wants my sword, suddenly. But not defenseless. Never defenseless.
