Hi! My name’s Zayne Rosebrook and this is my super special diary-journal book-thingy! Opa has one and his Mama has one and Tante Joce has one and now I have one too.
I don’t really know how to write anything. Words are HARD. So I hope it’s okay to just draw a whole buncha lines on the paper. I think it’s fair ‘cause I can’t read anything the grown-ups write so now they can’t read anything I write either! It’s like a secret spy message!
Bruce tol’ me it was a good idea. He’s the only one who can read this too. Bruce is one of my bestest friends ever. And he’s super special and super awesome and super-secret because nobody else can see him ‘cept for ME. But Mama and Papa like to pretend they can see him sometimes. They tuck me in at night and they give me a kiss and they save a special kiss for Bruce too.
Bruce likes that a lot. Bruce doesn’t have a Mama or a Papa, so I like to share mine. Oh! I forgot to tell you somethin’ real important! Bruce is Batman! But a kid-Batman. Which is way more cool than a grown-up Batman.
He’s my ‘maginary friend. Which is the bestest kinda friend. Just like how he’s the bestest Batman too.
Now Bruce says I’m like him. He says I don’t have a Mama or a Papa either. But I don’t think he’s tellin’ the truth.
But that’s what all the grown-ups are sayin’ too. They say Mama and Papa are dead. And whenever I ask ’em what it means, they say Mama and Papa went away to a special place. Forever. They say they went away the night the Bad Thing happened.
I don’t like to talk to anybody about the Bad Thing, but they still ask me lotsa questions. I don’t like it.
I don’t even ‘member a lot. Lotsa smoke. Big red fire. Bruce kept tellin’ me we had to run away, but I couldn’t leave without Mama and Papa.
I ran as fast as I could to their room, but then I heard a SUPER loud CRASH and somethin’ really hot fell down on my face, and another thing that weighed a million-jillion tons.
I screamed and screamed and then I couldn’t breathe and then a big scary man with a big helmet picked me up and carried me away.
Bruce says he was a superhero, like him.
But I think he was a bad man. ‘Cause he took me away from Mama and Papa.
I love my Oma and my Opa and my grandpa. And Onkel Auggy and Tante Clara and Onkel Florian. And Tante Joce is nice too. And everybody’s been extra-super-special nice to me ever since the Bad Thing.
But I really just wanna go home. I don’t like sleeping in Papa’s old bedroom anymore. I want my bed.
But they keep tellin’ me I don’t have a bed anymore. Just like Bruce says I don’t have a Mama or a Papa.
My Tante Joce says she’s gonna take care of me now. But she’s kinda like a stranger. A really nice stranger who sends me presents on my birthday and gives me a kiss at Christmastime. But still a stranger.
And I don’t want her to take care of me. I want Mama and Papa!
I can’t wait for them to come back and take me home.
Huge shoutout to Yunanesca at Sims4Studio! She custom-made Zayne’s scar per my request back in August. It’s available on her creator studio for public download, as well as a bunch of other awesome creations. 🙂
