January 15, 1600 (Act 1, before scene 3)
I got to see Hamlet again today! I was carrying my new books down to my room, and being the gentleman that he is, he helped carry them for me. I am pretty sure by now that he likes me, but I still am not completely sure. When I asked him about how he was after his father’s death, he became silent and didn’t want to talk to me. Does he hate me for asking that question? I hope not… I just want to help him because he used to cry all the time and be depressed. I just want him to feel better
January 17, 1600 (Act 1, Scene 3)
Laertes is leaving for France today. I will miss him so much! I think I will write to him every day. He really cares for me, though, and made an interesting comment about Hamlet. He says our interactions and his flirting are meaningless, and can pass away quickly. Father also said the same, and doesn’t want me to talk to Hamlet that much anymore. Why would Hamlet not truly love me? Is father correct with what he says? I really hope not, but I don’t want to anger him, so I will try to avoid Hamlet now.
