Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

Brilliant green leaves spreading overhead frame the sky as you walk home from school. Suddenly, a cool breeze tickles the back of your neck. You spin around, but no one’s there. However, when you look closer, a coiled-up leaf is fluttering on the ground in front of you. You reach down an pick it up, hesitantly unrolling it.


Etched in thick golden ink are the words “Hello, my dear CBer! You have been invited to a trip to the Amazon rainforest! Whether hiking to a mysterious waterfall or ziplining over the lush canopy, this is trip is one you won’t be soon to forget. This wonderful trip begins very soon, so pack your bags and get ready. Of course, all CAPTCHAS and AEs are welcome.

We are not responsible for any assassinations, murders, or inexplicable disappearances of any kind.”


Your heart begins to pound with excitement. You dash off to pack, not noticing the iridescent red feather tucked in your pocket, or the shimmering rainbow-colored bird vanishing into the clouds.

Fred isn't bringing anything.

Here is my packing list:

Clothes, duh.

Binoculars (for finding Tapirs and Leopards, there are lots of those in the Amazon.)


Lots and lots of donuts, pastries and chocolate! For the plane ride.

*sings to the tune of "Over the river and through the woods* Over the ocean and through the clouds, to the Amazon rainforest we go! The tour guide knows the way through the beautiful green jungle!  

Really, LB?

Alrighty, I don't think anybody else is going to join, and we have enough anyways, so let's begin!


Day One 

A single ray of dawn-light shone through the window. The dim ray was not nearly enough to wake anyone up, but suddenly the window was yanked up, pouring a wave of sunlight into the room. Startled, the CBers tumbled out of their beds and leapt to their feet. Fúdìmó yelled and began firing spells everywhere, green light flashing, and Golden Spark let loose a flash of flame. However, after the general chaos had settled down, the Riddler poked her head out the window, squinting in the sun. When she gave a gasp of surprise, the other CBers rushed over to see.

Sitting outside was a giant jet, shining silver in the bright morning light. A figure was standing in front of the jet, waving cheerily at the CBers. "Hello, all!" Their voice was carefully disguised, so no one ould tell if they were male or female, though excited. The CBers, their CAPTCHAS and AE following, raced outside, screeching to a halt outside the jet. Hotairballoon followed slower, wiping his eyes. "Whose idea was it to get us up this early?" he grumbled. Vikki bumped his shoulder, grinning. 

"It's fine," she said. "I mean, this is so cool!" The figure smiled, guiding the CBers onto the plane. Once everyone was seated, the CAPTCHAS curled at people's feet and the AE's squeezed in, the figure stood at the front, annoucing themselves. 

"Hello! I am the Explorer, and you are all officially going to the great Amazon Rainforest!" Amid the bubbling excitement and questions, they continued on. "We're due to begin shortly, so buckle your seatbelts and we'll be in the sky shortly!" The Explorer then turned and slid into the pilot's seat, pressing buttons and flicking dials. 

There was a jolt and the sound of wheels scraping against the pavement, and the jet sped into the air. Quickly the machine rose above the clouds, wings spread wide. A rippled of delight passed through the CBers, and up front the Explorer allowed themselves a smile. This would be one amazing trip, for sure.
