They say any landing you walk away from is good enough, but what about my case? Could have been worse, of course - the other three can't even move... Shura and Nick got away with just bruises, though. Nick made a splint for me and more or less put the leg together. It sure hurts like hell...


Jul 13, 2028

We're in a tight spot - with bogs all around we sure are not walking to that village Shura said he saw until we at least have a path laid out... Looks like we're settling here for the time being. The good thing is that we managed to build a camp and get everyone there. The bad thing is that the plane is leaking fuel badly, so we must be quick with getting our stuff out before it catches fire or something. An unexpected bonus: there are no mosquitos here, which is weird...

There are other things... They left tracks in the muck last night, which don't look like anything we've ever seen. Glad we have the guns - who knows what those things were... Better get some power in case they come at night. I wonder if we could drive that ram turbine with that bike we had in the luggage...


Jul 15, 2028

Oh my God! They got Nick! He went to take that ram turbine and they got him! Huge, greenish-grey praying mantis-like monsters! The shotgun did nothing, Shura fired both barrels, but shot just bounced off! They were perfectly hidden, as if they knew where to wait for him! Fucking monsters! Nick... We should have stayed home...


Jul 16, 2028

We have two options... Try to get help from the village now, or wait till the food runs out and try then. At least, we have time to think about it - it looks like the monsters are afraid of fire and don't approach our camp while the fire's going. Shura says it's up to me, as the others are mostly drifting in and out of conscience, but... How can he be so calm - I still can't get over what happened to Nick... And this fever...


Jul 17, 2028

Shura left... His message... Still, that's bullshit! Just let him get to the dry land, please...


Jul 18, 2028

They are crawling around at night, clicking their mandibles, what an awful sound... Can't sleep, have to keep the fire going. Luckily Shura left enough firewood... The others can't move at all, but my fever is a little lower now, so...


Jul 20, 2028

I can't stand it anymore... Can't sleep... Will try walking tomorrow - I need some more firewood, at least...


Jul 21, 2028

Shura... God damn it... Fucking beasts! I found his backpack less than a hundred meters from the camp... Took all my speed to hobble back before they noticed me... Fucking monsters...


Jul 22, 2028

They're crawling around, splashing in the mud, clicking their claws... The sound... It's driving me nuts... Lucky the guys are passed out most of the time, don't bother them so much... My fever is back... Don't know if I'll be able to keep this up...


Jul 23, 2028

It's not so bad with the fire crackling, really... The fever is getting worse...


Don't know the date... The leg is all black, can't write... Sharpened a couple of sticks and gave them to the guys, hope they can hold them... The monsters are getting closer...


I can't write anymore...

Torn note

Dima, you know I have to try - I'm the only one left who can move, and we have to get help! Otherwise, the guys are as good as dead! Sit tight and don't you dare pull a typical you like back then! See ya around!
