I am going to guess today will be long and hard. From what I can gather, by my treatment so far, i would say these men are not to be reckoned with. I can hear them in the rooms above, I assume they will come to retrieve us within the next few minutes. I just hope they let us at least look presentable if we are going into the public eye. Though that doesn't seem likely considering we are just captives to them. I will write more later I can hear them coming down here and so I must be ready, or at least as ready as I can be.
My guess was right, I have never worked harder in my life. I now realize that even though we were running out of money we still had it good. I have know idea how many tasks they are going to give us but this first one will be truly hard. We must build two boats, one for each of our captors. I feel like this is all my fault, like if I had been more careful we wouldn't be in this predicament. I miss my family so much if only I could be with them now. I hate, no I loathe this, I just want to go home. Good bye, I will try to write tomorrow, but for now I must sleep.

Although I slept quite a few hours I'm so very tired. They worked us till I thought we would die. This is proving to be harder than I had originally thought. I believe I will make the most out of tonight and get some much needed rest.

I'm so very sorry that I didn't write yesterday, I simply just didn't get a chance. My body is suffering in pure agony from all this work. I feel like I'm an old, frail man who is both mentally and physically weak. I believe I should be getting more food to support a healthy weight, but I dare not say that to my captors. These men scare me to the point where I wallow in my own self-pity. I feel so separated from the outside world, what I wouldn't to speak to my family again. I do not know when I will write again,but hopefully it will be soon, till then good-bye.
A/N It has been a while since the last time I wrote. I was not only suffering from an extreme case of writers block, but I have had no time to write. Hopefully, with Christmas break coming soon I will have more time to write. DON'T forget to comment.
