Tape A log two: 12:03 p.m
Liberty- This is our second log in tape A. Okay, let’s pick up where we left off. I told me and Blake’s story, so Layla you can go-
Julian- I don’t think she should get to go next. She was the one that got us found out!
Tyler- He’s not wrong.
Layla- Fine, fine, fine. Then can Tyler go first?
Liberty- Sure, go ahead Tyler.
Tyler- Okay. You guys ready?
Tyler- I saw a dead…stone….giant.
Liberty- That’s it!? That’s the whole story?
Blake- You’re not going to talk about when or where?
Julian- What kind of story was that!
Liberty- Okay, good joke. But you are going to have to talk about more if we are gonna put this in the records. We could just scrap this and start over.
Liberty- Alright then. Tyler, please finish your story.
Tyler- Okay. Well I was out in Logan’s Woods, you cannot tell my parents I was there, okay? So, I was walking along, and decided to pick a way I hadn’t been. And I did, and found a dead stone giant.
*Slurping and chip munching*
Liberty- That was better, but when we go looking for giants you will have to really lead and talk more about it.
Tyler- I’m good with that.
Liberty- Okay, Layla now you can-
Julian- Why do I always have to go last?
Blake- Cause you’re the Aggravator.
Julian- Me? Aggravate? Never!
Liberty- Layla, just tell your story.
Layla- Yay! Okay, so it was a few years ago, and I was having a picnic. It was before I moved here and met all of you so I was alone. I did have stuffed animals with me, but that was it. It was a beautiful day! The sun was shining, butterflies were out, and the lunch my mom made was great-
Liberty- That’s too many details.
Layla- Right, sorry. Well, I thought it was gonna be sunshine all day, but it wasn’t. Raining started pouring down on top of me. I grabbed all my food, stuffies, and picnic cloth. I ran to a nearby barn, to stay dry. I felt like crying when I heard the thunder and saw a stuffed animal I had dropped. Then, something amazing happened. While I was curled up crying, I felt something touch me, and I looked up. My stuffed animal was soaking wet, but in the barn. I looked outside and saw a pure white horse running in the rain. On the top of its head, was a silvery horn! Just like in the stories! I told my parents once they found me, but they didn’t believe me.
Liberty- Wow! You saw a real unicorn?
Julian- Okay, my turn.
Layla- Aren’t you gonna ask any questions about it.
Layla- *Sigh* Fine.
Julian- Yes! My turn! Okay, so it all happened when I was-”
Voice- Blake! Would y’all like to come with me to the store?
Blake- No thanks mom! We’re gonna hang out here!
Voice- Okay then, you five behave!
Julian- Okay, now. It all happened when I chose to run away one night.
Layla- Why would you run away!?
Julian- To see what it was like.
Liberty- OKAY! Julian and Layla we’ve had enough interruptions. Tell the story.
Julian- Ooohh. Someone woke up on the wrong side of the bed this morning.
Julian- *Clears throat* Anyway, I chose to run away one night. I was only planning on a two day trip so I just brought a small backpack-
Tyler- You make it sound like a vacation.
Julian- And a tent. It was about eight at night, and I left the note to tell my parents I was running away.
Blake- How old were you?
Julian- Seven. Why?
Blake- Just wondering if your parents could tell what you’d written, or if your handwriting was still like your handwriting now, horrendous.
Julian- Good one, Blake, but it will take more than that to get to me, and who says horrendous? Anyway I ran off to Logan’s Woods. I moved here a year before so I knew the area pretty well. I set up my tent and everything. I didn’t know how to make a fire so-
Blake- Like you will even know how to make a fire in this lifetime.
Julian- … So I brought a flashlight with me. I wasn’t scared at all… not at all.
Julian- Sorry, anyway I finally got to sleep, but something woke me up. It was like muffed talking-
Julian- Yeah that. I slowly scooted to the door of my tent, and unzipped it. I saw a fire lit, and around it three tall people. They were dressed pretty roughly, it looked like grass and leaves and stuff, but I went ahead and said “Hey”. They looked at me, and their faces looked like perfect, almost too perfect, like weirdly perfect. I think they were elves cause their ears were really pointy and stuff. Anyway when I talked the fire and them vanished!
Blake- When you spoke they and the fire vanished!
Julian- Whatever. Anyway my parents came out there and found me later that night.
Tyler- Logan’s Woods, huh.
Liberty- Whatcha thinking, Tyler?
*More chip munching*
Liberty- Tyler there are only five of us, just talk.
Tyler- Well, two creatures have been found there, and Layla’s old house, while pretty far away, was still only a few miles from Logan’s Woods, cause those woods are pretty big.
Liberty- You’re right! Our first search should be in the woods.
Blake- Yeah, that would make sense. When should we start out?
Blake- I know you really want to go on an adventure, but let’s prepare first. Who knows what we’ll run into.
Liberty- Yeah… I guess you’re right. Okay, the next meeting will be reviewing what we should bring. All in favor, say I.
Julian- When did we start doing I’s?
End of log one.
