Graham has made it pretty clear again that he wants to meet. His exact phrasing was: "im waiiitng"
I don't know what to make of that, as he didn't actually tell me where he was waiting.
April's getting worse again, so this whole thing is starting to hurry! I wish he would just be straightforward for once.

I thought that it was time we tried to figure out exactly what we are up against.
The only real information we have beyond what’s been going on is the books we were given, and they were not very descriptive.
As far as I understand from Marcusson’s comments, this thing is supposedly a specific aspect of a set of beings, along the lines of divine avatars in Huindu mythology. This reasoning is in line with some of the creatures referenced, such as the Naga. It seems plausible that something like what we are dealing with was once confused and interpreted as a creature of the wet underworld. The water and the tunnels seem to have been a prerequisite for summoning it.
Because while the Naga seem to sometimes have had benevolent intentions, the thing we’re dealing with clearly has little in the way of sympathy for people.
As for the idea of the Cyhyraeth, its scream could supposedly be heard before someone died. It therefore wasn’t seen as a danger in and of itself, but rather as an omen. Here too, it is easy to imagine someone coming up with the myth following an encounter with this thing. After all, we have seen nothing of it directly, but rather just the thing acting through people.

A few of you have been asking how April’s been doing after she got back, and the answer is difficult.
For the most part she seems fine, but then she will suddenly snap at something insignificant, or throw worried looks over her shoulder. She spends most of the day sleeping, or at least lying still on her bed. Earlier today I thought she was sleeping with her eyes open, because she was staring at a chair for half an hour without moving a muscle. Then she just said “Poor tree,” and turned around.
We’ve been talking about what we can do, as it seems like she might have gotten worse from her excursion, rather than better, but that’s all I can say for now.

We got April back last night! I think she’s still sleeping, which is a good sign. At least I hope it is.
The only shame is that I missed meeting with Graham, not once but twice, and now he’s back to not responding to me at all. Marcusson also seems difficult to contact now. He seems to have the idea that he has given us everything he can, but if he can answer anything about what is going on with the culvert and whatever is affecting April, he will have to.
