I hate it here. Why did we have to move to Skyrim anyway? I miss the big port cities, there was always something to do and new people around. Or even being cabin girl on one ships we used to sail on would be better than this! Mani says we should run away, but I can’t leave Mother and Father alone out here… Oh what to do?
We’ve been here for two months now and there is nothing to do! From the top of the lighthouse we can see all the way to the College at Winterhold, but Father says that magic is for Daedra worshippers. The only interesting thing to have happened lately is that Mother snapped at us at dinner and accused us of stealing things out of the cellar. I did hear scratching down there the other night, but I thought it was just Father cleaning fish.
I caught Mani in the cellar a couple days ago going through some the barrels and crates. At first I thought it was him all along making those scratches to play a trick on me, but I heard them again last night and Mani was in bed. Father finally said he would go get some traps and poison from town in case it’s skeevers. I’m really scared, it doesn’t sound like skeevers to me.
Mani won’t listen, he thinks I’m just making up the noises and keeps sneaking into the cellar! Oooh why is he so stupid some times? I don’t know why he keeps going down there but I’ve found the cellar key he copied and hid it in Mother’s favorite keepsake so he won’t find it. The scratching is getting louder.
