Herschel's Log - Entry ThreeA Chapter by emily
Well I’ll be goddamned. I should have known this would happen. Today, I was coming out of the showers (thank God we figured that out, by the way. The room was starting to smell worse than the ghetto), and those a******s from the West Block had Jim cornered. And, yeah, they were after me, too, but the thing is that it wasn’t only me this time.
We’re the targets. It’s not just me. I feel so stupid! This whole week I’ve been under the impression that I’m still the one being persecuted here. But I’m not, or at least I’m not the only one. They’re after Jim and Erich and Gabe as much as they are after me. If it’s not simply because we’re the new guys it’s because we’re different, and apparently even here it’s the different people who get the short end of the stick. Well I saw enough of that happening back in Poland and I’m not going to just stand there and take it. If those dupki knew what I was capable of, who I was back home, what I did to get here, they would have thought twice before starting anything. Believe me, they will regret this.
Gabe didn’t want us to listen to them. But he wasn’t there. He didn’t see the way they looked at us or hear what they called me. Plus Erich’s on our side, if for no reason but his damaged pride, and he’s the one who might actually be the able to intimidate those wankers if the opportunity arises. And by “intimidate” I mean “beat the s**t out of.” The guy still scares me, but as it turns out he’s a great asset to have on your side. Gabe got on board after some persuasion, so we’re all set.
It’s time for dinner. We’re all walking out together for the first time, and I assume we’ll probably eat together if we’re going to work out a plan. Maybe this means the four of us are headed down a better road, but all I can say right now is that tonight is definitely going to change things.
