Edward was not supposed to be scaring them anymore. He was just supposed to be doing reconnaissance. They are becoming more adept at avoiding our planted microphones and video recorders. We will soon need a frank line of communication opened in order to get to the bottom of this mutiny.
In the meantime, Edward cannot be allowed to have free reign over this place anymore. He has gone and absolutely terrified Aspen and Tabitha. To top it off, he snuck out again last night, after confessing how sorry he was for his behavior during my illness. He went to terrorize the girls again. Elija, poor bold idiot that he is, was coming after him with a baseball bat when we found them on the cameras.
Edward is very lucky that Maxwell had just arrived back at the house when he did. Elija thought he was the one who had frightened the girls. Max looked wholly unconcerned about the bat or Elija’s exasperation.
“Where have you been, man?” Elija exclaimed.
Edward, not more than ten feet away around the corner, took to hiding behind a large oak.
“I thought that freak guy was coming after us again, but it was just you. What the hell have you been doing? Did you find-”
He looked at the camera and stopped. This was becoming very irritating. They seemed to be very aware of every camera location, like they had a map or something.
“I’ll tell you inside,” Maxwell replied lowly. “Let’s get out of view.”
Edward then started making his way back. I will no longer abide his mutinous, rogue behavior. He will not further jeopardize this study now… whatever that study may be. Perhaps, on another day, I can thank him for helping this experiment to take on the rather new and exciting direction it is headed. But this is not that day.
