Barry made entries in his journal about his training, making it a semi-shrug. If anyone ever found his book and read it, they would assume he was going for training to sharpen his skills and keep in practice, not that this was his first time.
He loved his journal, he returned to it often, reading it as if it were a best selling novel.
Barry rewrote in pen the entries he approved of, leaving those which needed a bit of work in pencil.
What he wanted was to write the truth from this angle.
From the Angle of a cool kid, not a nobarry.
