Exposition(introduction): When I saw a poison container turned over and a trail of powder that led to Barney's dish I couldn't believe Tayloe was getting in the way of scientific progress.
August 30th (In the lab on a deserted island)
Rising action: Now that Tayloe is gone, Barney appears to be a lot happier! After only two weeks of glutamic acid treatments, he has become interested in my library.
I've had to keep Barney confined for the past two days. I'm afraid that he might share his intelligence with others of his kind.
Climax: I let Barney play around before starting new series of tests. Before returning to his cage, Barney stole the lab keys and dropped it down the well before I could do anything. Barney has won this round.
Falling action: Barney saved my life! The rope was on the verge of breaking and Barney warned me! I went back to get proper supplies, I plan to go back to the well tomorrow.
Denouement (resolution): Poor Barney is dead and I shell be too. If anybody reeds this please do not disturb anything on the island, but leeve it like it is as a shryn to Barney, espechilly the old well.
