Robert Harvey. This is the name of the man that killed my mom 8 years ago. Today was February 27, 1910. After discovering my mother’s death I swore that I would find out why my father never wanted to tell me my mother was dead. Well I followed this trail for almost 2 years now and I’ve finally figured it all out. The truth about my mother’s death really revolves around my father. It seems that my father used to be a huge gambler and he was very bad at paying back his debts. Sense he never payed his debts, tons of people wanted him dead. That night the car was meant to hit my father not my mother. Robert Harvey was the driver of this car and he was the one who my father owed the most. I’m guessing that this is one of the reasons why we moved and why he never lets me be free outside like the other kids.  Considering all of these things I just told you, I have no idea if my mother’s death should be a weight on my father’s shoulders. Sure he caused her death, but he wasn’t the one that ran her over with a car, this was Robert Harvey.

A new year has finally come and just in time. The date is January 2, 1908. This is Sadie again and I’m happy for this new year for many reasons. One of these reasons would be that I need a new and fresh start to life. My life was just thrown around and bashed down in the past few days. Genevieve, my mother of course, is dead. When I went to ask my father if he would take me to New York, I could tell that he had been drinking because he started blurting out nonsense about cars and sirens. Then he said it, the words a kid never wants to hear, that their mother is dead. At first I didn’t believe him, but he continued to go on about how it happened multiple years ago. When my father was done explaining I started hitting him and yelling at him while choking on the tears that streamed down my face. I don’t know why I hit him but it felt better after I did, the worst part about it was that he didn’t even bother to fight back, like he knew he was guilty for something . What he was feeling guilty about I have no idea, but I plan on asking him about it later. Now you know what I meant when I said my life has been wrecked lately. Another thing that has added to the bashing of my life is that the guy next door, Louis invited me over to his house for dinner. I know that this should be the complete opposite of bad news, but my father wouldn’t let me go which means bad news for me. My best buddy Prince also died a week ago. My bed is going to be empty without him laying next to me and keeping me warm. I’m going to think positive about this year and wish that things will go my way from now on, Oh and by the way I drew the picture that is above this writting.

Today is my 11th Birthday and the date is November 16, 1907. The weather was actually nice today and I was able to enjoy an outdoor party. My party took a lot of convincing, but it was totally worth it! This is because I got to finally hang out with the neighboorhood kids. The guy that lives next to me also came to my party. He is the same age as me and every girl in my class likes him, including me. On a different subject, my father bought me roses for my birthday. Roses are my favorite flowers because my mother would always grow them. Speaking of my mother, I’ve just recently started asking my father more questions about her.  He just seems to dodge the questions, but soon I will force him to answer my questions. Forcing him to answer these questions makes since because I believe he knows the answers he just wont tell me.

The date it april 3, 1906 and it has been the most depressing week ever. This is because it has been cold and rainy every day. With cold weather also comes runny noses, coughing, and just feeling completly run down. I know everything about these symptoms because I’ve been expriencing them all week. For my 9th birthday daddy got me an art set, so during this rainy week I made the picture above. I enjoy creating art work and daddy says I’m really good at it for my age. Even though I hate baking, I’m also getting really good at it too. School hasn’t been fun lately because everyone there thinks I’m weird. I’m guessing they think this because I never come outside and play with them. I wish they knew that my dream is to run around and play with them but my father restricts basically anything fun outside. I can’t wait until I’m old enough to make my own decisions and live my life the way I’ve always dreamed.

We moved, not very far, but it was a move. The new house is in the same city, but daddy said the other house was too small. This move occured about a week ago on June 19, 1905. My new room is big and I told daddy I wanted it to be pink with a princess bed. He agreed to this and now I have bright pink walls and a bed that is definetly fit for a princess. This new room is the only reason I didn’t feel bad about moving. The old house has so many memories because I’ve lived there my whole life. With the new house came new neighboorhood friends. All the kids seem like so much fun, so I just want to go run around and play with them. Daddy says I’m not allowed to though, because he believes girls shouldn’t run around and play in the mud like boys do. I told him he was wrong and that I should be able to run around and play outside with the other kids. On the other hand, when I finished writing my entry last year I noticed that two pages were ripped out of mother’s journal. I’m very curious about this, maybe these pages could tell me where mother ran off to, so I could find her again. Sorry that this is all I have to talk about, but this year was very uneventful. I have this feeling that things will be better soon.

Yesterday daddy took me to watch A Cleveland Indians game! The game was amazing and I had the best time with him. Baseball is my favorite sport an also my dads. I guess I should introduce myself, I’m Sadie and I’ve been on this earth for about 7 1/2 years. This means that the date is May 18, 1904. The only thing i’ve done today was honework. I begged daddy to go to normal school and I’m starting to regret this because of all the homework. My daddy says I should learn how to be a true women and by that he means that he wants me cooking and cleaning. I don’t want to become some housewife. My dream is to someday takeover my grandfather’s factory. This dream will be hard to accomplish, but I truly believe I can fufill it. Since my father dosn’t believe in my dream he is making me learn how to cook and clean. While cooking isn’t that bad, I cannot stand cleaning up after other people. This is probably one if the reasons my mother ran away, she didn’t feel like cleaning up after me and my father anymore. I can add that to my lists of possible reasons mom ranaway. When I get older I plan on tracking my mother down so I can confront her about leaving her family behind. She had to have one good reason for leaving her new husband and only daughter behind. I mean she didn’t even leave a note to say she was sorry or where she went, according to dad he woke up and she was gone. My mother was a great person don’t get me wrong, but I don’t want to be her when I grow up.

Tomorrow is Sadie’s 7th Birthday, which means that today is November 15, 1903. When I asked her what she wanted for her birthday she just kept on telling me that she wanted her mother to come home. Genevieve will never come home, but Sadie thinks she ran off so she didn’t have to take care of her. I didn’t tell her this, but she assumed it and I wasn’t going to tell her the truth. Her mother isn’t a gift I can give but I have decided to give her this journal, so she can write in it just like her mother used to. After I write this I will remove this page and the other that I wrote so Sadie doesn’t find out about her mother’s death. I’ve also decided to get her a Teddy Bear, just like the one in the picture. These teddy bears are a new thing that all kids are wanting. I guess they were named after Teddy Roosevelt when he went on a hunting trip and found an old black bear injured and tied to a tree. This bear was then portrayed as Teddy in political cartoons and shown as a cub. These Cartoons inspired the Teddy Bear that was named after Teddy Roosevelt. On another note, Sadie is becoming such a beautiful young lady and she reminds me of Genevieve every day. She is so lively, cheerful and definitely friendly. Everyone in town loves her, because she is always skipping down the streets while singing silly songs. Sadie has also requested to go to school like a normal kid and I’ve decided to allow this. Genevieve always wanted her to stay home where she was safe, but I say it’s time for her to spread her wings and gain a little freedom. The cost of this school will be very high, however I would do anything for my little girl, so if she wants to go to school then I will enroll her in school.

My name is Jackson Vurner and I just found this diary yesterday, March 3, 1901. I would tell you about myself but by reading what Genevieve wrote about me you already know most things. Above is a picture I took of Genevieve on the first day of our honeymoon. She was so beautiful. I’m very crushed to share with you that Genevieve got struck by a car on the way home from our honeymoon. The driver wasn’t paying attention and it was getting dark out, we were so close to being home and seeing Sadie again. Genevieve died instantly. The image of her laying there on the roadway will always be embedded in my head. When I came home that night Sadie ran towards me and asked me where her mom was. Tears streamed down my face as I looked down at Sadie. I didn’t know what to tell her so in the spur of the moment I told her that her mother was still in New York and that she wasn’t going to be home for a while. Lying to Sadie felt horrible, but how could I tell her Genevieve was dead? Sadie was confused by this but she didn’t question it. Everyday she asks me multiple questions about when her mother is going to be home, it breaks my heart, but I have to continue lying to her about her mother’s death. Sadie is way to young for the truth.

Me and Jackson are finally married! Two years ago I would have never dreamed that this day April 20, 1901 would have ever occurred. I say this because Jackson was married to a completly different women then. This sounds weird I know, but Jackson isn’t just some guy I met a year ago, he has been in my life for over 10 years. We also have a child together and she is the best thing that has ever happened to me. Since Jackson is from a wealthy family and he works in his father’s company, money hasn’t been a problem. This dosn’t mean we go off and buy anything because we want it. This means we have enough money to survive happily and also save a fairly good amount every payday. With this in mind I haven’t had to work so I can stay at home with Sadie and teach her all sorts of things. Just recently she mastered her abc’s and she is also learning how to read. Jackson and I have decided to homeschool Sadie that way she is always safe and at home. We are hiring a nanny for the next couple days so me and Jackson can go on our honeymoon. I don’t know where we are going because he has been keeping it a surprise, but i’m sure its going to be wonderful!

I’m so sorry for waiting so long to write again but I’ve just been so busy. The date is January 5, 1900. This wait wasn’t for nothing though because Me, Sadie and Jackson are now living in are own house. When I told Jackson that Sadie was his daughter, Jackson thought I was joking at first but when I didn’t start laughing he took it a little more seriously. I saw his face change and he seemed really mad, but he then suprised me with a constricting hug. Tears of joy came to my eyes while he was hugging me because I was so happy to know he was taking this news so well. Jackson then ran to tell his parents and they had a completly different view of this situation. They thought that I was lying and that I was just some gold digger looking to steal their money. He didn’t agree with them and he decided that night that we were going to move out into our own house. We have been in this new house over a year now and the picture above is of Sadie holding onto our new dog Prince. Sadie named this dog and he never leaves her side they absolutly love eachother. I actually have more happy news Jackson asked me to marry him yesterday and of course I said yes! My life seems to be going so great for me lately and I really hope nothing bad happens.
