SPRING 12 YEAR 2

Dear Diary,

It's been a while again, hasn't it? I'm sorry! Joe and I are hanging out more and more sometimes! :)

I think he gets in trouble a lot of times with Woody. He always seems to be visiting me at the cafe everyday now. I wish I knew but Gwen won't tell me and Kurt doesn't talk to me. I hope he doesn't get in trouble too much. It'll be sad if he ends up losing his job. Or at least, that's what I overheard the grownups said. I don't know what that means either. I may have to ask Louis again.

But Joe took me fishing with him again! Louis came by too. He thought it would be a good idea for us to learn some things about the stuff that was there. I don't know what he meant. He was just talking about the various animals that lived in the lake and some other stuff I didn't understand. Gwen helped him a lot too, I think. I don't know what they were really talking about.

Joe and me sneaked away when they were busy talking and went to the other side of the lake. I was always afraid to go there before because the place behind the church scared me. But since Joe was with me, I wasn't scared at all! He told me that he would protect me no matter what and took my hand and led me away! He felt like a real prince in shining armor. :)

He wanted to fish for a while so he taught me how to do it. It's a bit disgusting though. He had to dig for worms and put them on the hook. It kept squirming while he did it! Ew! He asked me if I wanted to try but I told him no. There's no way I could touch a worm like that! Yuck! But it was nice seeing Joe doing it. He looked like he was happy and having fun.

Joe didn't really talk much though while he was fishing. I kept trying to talk to him but he didn't hear me, I think. When I kept trying, he told me that he was concentrating and that I had to be quiet. Only he said it really mean and yelled at me a bit. That hurt my feelings. He apologized but it still hurt. Anyway, I stayed quiet for as long as I could but I got bored and left.

I don't really like it when I stay with Joe while he fishes. I hope we play a fun game next time.

Love, Katie.
