Mice and Men

Extracts from this document...


Date: Monday 15th October 1937 Time: 12:36am Dear Diary, This has been the worst day I've ever had and I don't think I am gonnar have a worse one again. I had to do it. I had to shot Lennie it wasn't anything evil. I didn't wanna hurt Lennie. At that moment, I didn't have any choice but to do it. He was my only friend not only friend, we were more like a family. We had been friends since when we were boys. Oh I feel so awful! I believe that Lennie didn't do any harm. At least he never meant any. He is simple-minded. Lennie is an innocent, like as a child. I shouldn't have left him alone. I feel so terrible. He never meant any harm. His mind is like a child. Lennie never meant to hurt people. He always gets me into terrible trouble. He's a crazy bastard. I mean he was. Oh, I feel so awful! What will I do now? What can I do? I suppose the only thing to do is to spend my money on his dream, to make it come true. I want Lennie's dream to come true because he died imagining the dream. ...read more.


At the beginning it was full of light and at the end it was dark. When I shot Lennie the world seemed to get darker and darker. I've never seen brightness since I shot Lennie. My best friend Lennie is dead now. Lennie's body was lying on one side of the river where the golden foothill slopes up to the strong and rocky Gabilan Mountains. At that moment the place was so lifeless, a little wind was moving among the leaves. At that time the place was so quiet and soulless. We were thinking about Lennie's burial. Slim, Candy, Crooks and I were thinking Lennie should be buried near by the pool because Lennie loved that place so much. We wanted Lennie buried near the pool he loved, in a quiet serene place. When I was burying Lennie I remembered all the things he used to say to me. His dreams of the rabbits he would tend when he and I got our land. He was only worried about me not letting him 'tend the rabbits. Lennie liked to pet soft things, like puppies and dead mice. We know this got him into trouble in Weed when he tried to feel a girl's soft red dress: she thought he was going to attack her. ...read more.


I am really sorry Lennie as at that time I was mentally lost. I didn't know what to do. I was telling you to jump in the river. I am so sorry about that, I didn't mean to do that to you. I am so sorry, please forgive me. That time my emotions were co9nfused and I wasn't in a good mood. I was so angry; I didn't know what I was saying. Though I knew that you don't know how to swim I still told you to jump in the river. Now I know how I feel without you. You are the only friend I ever had. You were more like family, not only a friend. I am so sorry Lennie. I don't feel like Lennie is dead. I feel like he is sitting beside me and talking about the stupid pups. The place is so lifeless. I don't feel like giving him up. He was the best friend I ever had. Thank you so much Lennie, for being my friend. You are really nice person, I didn't know that when you were alive. I used to think you were not important but now it seems you are a really important person. I am so sorry Lennie that I couldn't keep your promise. I am really sorry Lennie. Yours honestly George Milton ?? ?? ?? ?? Page 1 of 2 ...read more.
