Today I face another Raven's Challenge.
This week's 10-word challenge are: spaghetti, woe is me, mythology, avarice, windy, pathetic, paper towels, water, all my children, books
And for the mini: best deals of the week, Nobel Peace Prize, sleep deprived, cauliflower, practice
Sandy Shore could not get to sleep. There had been now many nights of little sleep, and she feared she would be sleep deprived. Could it be what she ate such as the cauliflower she had last night? She might as well get up. Maybe if she read the paper for the best deals of the week, she would get tired enough to fall asleep.
Not finding any deals, she turned to the news portion. There was an article on the winners of the Nobel Peace Prize. She knew who should really win the prize, Knight her invisible penguin. Of coarse they would not give it to him, because most people could not see him, or knew what he had done. He had all that power, and with practice he was becoming more skilled at turning dangerous situations into safe ones. Like the other day when those kids got their hands on the medallion that could bring someone into another place, and then that Larry put it on taking him off to another land. Many people wanted that power. The news had spread fast the medallion had been taken away from the wizard Jem. Now it It was in Knight's custody. That photo Larry had would becoming a blank paper.
Sandy found she was becoming tired and she returned to bed to sleep.
The spaghetti was all over the kitchen floor. Sandy was on her knees sopping up the spaghetti with paper towels dipped in water. She was whining "Woe is me." It was not the mess on the floor that was causing her distress, but the message she had received from Knight. It is surprising what a penguin can do with a beak. The mess was caused by her as she moved quickly to get to her computer. Wrong information was circulating that she had possession of the dimensional medallion. The avarice creatures she had seen in the world with out sound were planning to take the medallion from her.
A study needed to be done to see what weaknesses they had. She left the house, leaving the show All My Children playing on the TV. It was windy, and the walk to the university library a little difficult. She took out an armful of books on Mythology, and cornered a table just for herself. She observed the students going about their business unaware of the danger from an unknown world. How pathetic she thought.
Although she gathered a list of things to protect her, they were from this world would they work on creatures from another? She would do her best to keep from revealing were the medallion was.
