Masks of Nyarlathotep

At least I am alive

Wednesday, February 21 1923

From Sammy Pickens personal journal,

I can’t say the same for my friends, Vince and Huey. Did I really see the walking dead stumble across that dark room and EAT Huey? Also, I saw the blast hole from Huey’s shotgun blast, but it did nothing…the things just kept coming, ripping off giant chucks of flesh with their hands and mouth. All the while Silas laughed in the corner. I had to stop that laugher, so I shot him..in cold blood. But it wasn’t my fault, he did send these beasts after us. And then Vinny went down, then they came after me. I had to escape…the things tore after me ripping chucks of my flesh out too…it was all I could do to run up the stairs. The last thing I remember was running up the stairs and hearing the screaming of police officers.

Then I awoke, in St. Mary’s our Sister of Mercy Hospital, to the sound of bickering men and the nursing staff. Slammed with the questions(no remorse the police…no wonder why everyone hates them), but all I wanted to know was what happened to my friends, Vinny…he had to be alive. But they said they only found two bodies, where did the others go? Time to Jimm—er James as he liked to be called, I needed some legal help. Of course no one is going to believe me about what I saw, hell I don’t believe it myself. I have to tell Lt. Pool….but how without sounding screwy.

One thing that I have while recovering from is plenty of time. And visitors; a PI and two professors, maybe they can help me were the police can’t. Those academic types are always curious…maybe I can use that to my advantage. So I decided to tell them what happened…I guess the dick was off talking to some professor or something. Of course I couldn’t tell them about the walking dead, but I did mention that the ‘cannibals’ did bite my friends. Maybe with their other research they can gather the truth, now is not the time for them to know that. I already told Jimmy and that was a mistake. Vince, man, I hope you are alright.

Taking some time to look at the evidence that has been gathered so far it seems that the next step is to head overseas, maybe to London. But I am sure that we will be in Egypt before too long. Maybe with more time in this hospital bed I can figure this out more. Everyone left to head down to Jonah’s shop. Maybe he will have more information, it seemed that Jackson was closing in on something big with the Carlye expedition.
