I finally realized that Barney had left me in the well to die. He had become too intelligent for his own good.
I slowly and painfully made my way out of the well using the sacking and the key that I had sharpened to a fine point on the well wall. I read the diary entry of September 11th and knew what I had to do!
I found Tayloe on the beach. The transport ship had not come to pick him up yet. I apologized and told him that I was sure Barney had tried to frame him by poisoning himself. We came up with a plan.
Tayloe had found a female rat in a nearby cave. This rat would be bait to draw Barney back to the vault. We placed her inside the vault.
Barney fell for it! He scampered into the vault. I was able to light the diary on fire and throw it into the vault. Everything burned. My notes could be dangerous in the wrong hands.
Tayloe and I escaped from the island on the next transport ship. We vowed never to repeat our experiments.
