Raven challenge 91

Today I face another Raven's Challenge.

Ten Word:
The lanky lad Larry wearing sunglasses sat in the warm sun as he pealed his juicy orange. He hoped this beach haven would bring quiet to his frazzled mind. On the edge of his area of the beach there was a quartet of sprightly swimsuit clad chattering children, running about. One of the quartet , a girl had a necklace with a large medallion. She was not wearing the necklace, but was swinging it around and around challenging the other three boys to catch it. Larry was annoyed with the children disturbing his quiet, but they had not breached what he considered his spot. Then it happened the necklace flew out of the girls hand, and landed in his lap. The children became silent,there was no telling what this person would do. Larry glared.
"It is mine," he said. He put the necklace on. He heard and saw at that time a figure of a brown robed older gentleman, with a white beard, trying to run toward him in the sand.
"No", screamed the robed man.
It was too late. Larry found himself, by himself in a different location. The beach was gone. He was in a forest with no sound. There were no animal noises. He snatched off the necklace. He did not return to the beach. Where was he? He tied the necklace to a tree limb. He began his exploration of this new location.

On a tree branch over his head Larry saw a swarm of bees. He did not hear a buzz, but he moved away from that site. He walked on a narrow path through the woods until he came upon a wooden shack with a fire in front of it. There was no crackling of the burning wood. Over the fire on a spit was what looked like a chicken roasting. Chicken was a staple of his meal plan. He felt as if he had lost his hearing. Whoever was causing this, would get an earful when he found them, but what if he could not be heard. He let out a scream. Yup he could be heard, for the scream echoed among the trees. He opened and went in the shack. It had a cot with bedding on it. He would wait here for the person who was using the shack.

Now you have joined the continued story group. I have to wait a week to discover what is really going on. I hate that.
But you have a character that is developing very well.

Raven said...

Poor Larry. Looking forward to finding out where the necklace took him and if he gets to return home. Great story.

Okaaaaaay ... well now I'm SURE we're going to get a continuation of THIS story! Something tells me that chicken and that cot belongs to the robed man... who is probably getting HOT on the beach!
