The parchment of the pages is old, but seems well taken care of. The pages are not brittle, but they are delicate. The scripted writing is of a flowing and smooth hand, not quite feminine, but of practiced penmanship. Someone took pride in their writing. Still, something about the bold strokes speaks of masculinity.

The first thing written, an entry, is dated 45 BC. It is difficult to tell the actual date beyond the year, as it is written strangely. The book is a journal of some sort. Shinji's eyes register that this is written in an ancient and unused form of Latin, and that he cannot make heads or tails of it. Then, before him, he watches the entry become clear and unmistakeable English.

'Beware, beware the Ides of March.' The lady has spoken. A warning to our great emperor. One he has not heeded. He still continues with this fool's mission. He believes, with the sorceresss at his side, that he is invincible. That this is his destiny. Even she tried to warn him, for all the good it has done. His men seek to betray him. His pride will be his downfall.

I do not wish to see such things befall my emperor. So I went to the Lake. I did not know the direction I need to go. But I knew that the witch could be found on her Isle of Apples. Avalon, I have heard it called. It is a place of dark and witchcraft, but I am willing to risk my immortal soul that I might seek her help. She knows. She can tell me.

The next entry is shorter, by far. It's tone is of terror.

I went in search of Avalon. Three days I have been in these Mists. Lost, with naught to do but pray. I hear the bells of Glastonbury. I cannot even find those blessed shores. That bell, it's infernal ringing, is driving me mad. Where is the Lady of the Lake? What does she want from me? Why will she not show me the way?

- I'd give up forever to touch you, cuz I know that you feel me somehow. You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be, and I don't wanna go home right now. All I can taste is this moment, and all I can breathe is your life...I don't want the world to see me, cuz I don't think that they'd understand. When everything's made to be broken, I just want you to know who I am.-

-I will be the answer at the end of the line. I wil be there for you while you take the time. In the burning of uncertainty, I will be the solid ground. I will hold the balance if you can't look down. If it takes my whole life, I won't break, I won't bend. It'll all be worth it, worth it in the end. I can only tell you what I know, that I need you in my life. When the stars have all gone out, you'll still be burning so bright.-

-The stars, the moon, they have all been blown out since you left me in the dark. No dawn, no day, I'm always in the twilight, in the shadow of your heart. And in the dark, I can hear your heartbeat. I tried to find the sound. But then, it stopped, and I was in the darkness, so darkness, I became. I took the stars from my eyes and then, I made a map. I knew that somehow, I could find my way back. I heard your heart beating, you were in the darkness too. So, I stayed in the darkness with you.-
