Jonah's Diary
-Midnight January 17

I can’t believe the direction Boxtown has turned. Perhaps for this is all for the better. In the meantime, though, we have made some terrible enemies. The Nubians have been thwarted . . . for now, but they are the least of our troubles. The black hats and blues have declared a curfew – martial law after 8:00 p.m. I haven’t seen the newscasts, but no doubt they have seen some of our faces. Niko has gone missing; I worry for her. With no record of her arrest there is no telling to what ends her powers will be exploited. Who has her? -the black hats? -the blues? -the Russians?
-mutant slave traffickers? One thing is for certain, alas, she must be found, and soon! Cardinal Aleesi is working to find housing for the young ones displaced by the fighting – I fear for their safety. In the mean time we must prevent more death and destruction in the ’hood, and lay low.

Bobby's Journal

Saturday January 17th 2023

Today was scary. I don’t know exactly what happened yet, but I think Assim, Chuco and Spider ripped off some Nubians when they were out getting supplies. I heard X and Assim yelling at the new guy from Dino’s. They were arguing over some black duffel bags like 10 black duffel bags. Everyone was anxious throughout the day. I think it might have been drugs, but I can’t see Cub and Jonah mixed up in that.

So much has happened today, evidently Oscar is missing, Mrs Navarres said he didn’t come to work this morning. After what happened to him I hope he’s alright. I heard X call the new guy Frost. They came and told Emma and I we had to hideout for a little while. We took Willie, Samantha, Nuala and both her brothers to a house where Mrs Bautista is a maid. The people that own it are in New York for the weekend. It’s hard for the little ones to see how these people live. Every one of us has our own room. I hope we don’t have to stay here long I don’t think I could take it.
