Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

It's back. You're sitting at your computer or staring at your phone, searching for something lost. But you can't remember what it is, or was. All you know is that it's out's important...and it was once yours.

Perhaps you never read it; perhaps you did--once, maybe twice. Or more. But for some strange reason, you can't remember if you did or didn't. Or what effect it had on you. Or...where it is now.

As you came onto Cricket today, the memory that you were missing this...thing slid into your head. As you pondered, staring at Pudding's Place, your eye snagged on a certain thread, and suddenly, the CB was no longer the familiar landscape you saw every day.

So you clicked the thread.

It loaded on your screen.

And here you are, reading, when suddenly it hits you.

Now you remember.

At last, it's sitting on your screen again, just as it has dwelled within your mind for all these years. Your heart skips a beat: Lake Lelillo is back.

~    ~ ~

Lake Lelillo is a ski lodge that was started in early 2017 by Micearenice (yours truly). The second installment in what was intended to be a trilogy, Lelillo stretched on for two and a half years before going into hibernation at Mice's farewell from the CB.

I did say on my leaving thread, however, that I might finish the story. Has that date come at too soon a time? I think not! Three years is far too long for a story to await completion. Leaving the CB was just the push I needed to tie up loose ends and officially pen ‘The End’. (Twice, in fact. You’ll see.)

It’s done (as done as it can be) and it’s back (enjoy it while it lasts!) and I’m back (for a limited time only)!

Find the Lake Lelillo thread HERE.

Start the story HERE.

Pick up where I left off HERE.

Visit my original ski lodge (The Farm Story) HERE. (Spoilers & alllusions to this in Lelillo) 

Now, for those of you new to the story of Lelillo: 

42 Chatterboxers, AEs, and CAPTCHAs embark on one of the most epic ski lodge adventures of all time. This is not your average murder mystery: Enter Lake Lelillo, a serene, expansive property once owned by the reclusive Tom Orville Noodle,  and his mazelike Noodle Manor. Enter also the caves below the property, two chaperones with a secret, and a murderer who defies all odds. Be aware of the antagonist: insidious, present through all, but invisible even to the reader’s eye until the very end.

What is this Mystery Lily and Cassy speak of? Why do Tom’s initials spell out something that should only be known at the Chatterbox? What secret could be more dangerous than a murderer? Lelillo is riddled with answers and is ready and willing to provide them. You need only trust your intuition and follow the clues. After all...

...Beneath everything you think you know, a deeper secret sleeps below. The murder mystery is only the surface of this story. Get ready to dive into a thrilling tale that will throw your world--and the Chatterbox itself--upside down. Your neutrality is acceptable now...but in the end, all must make a choice.

Welcome to Lelillo.

I'll be updating the story, at most, once daily on the original thread (see link above).

Thanks to everyone who participated in the story, and to all my readers who aren't in the story (but are just as important), and to anyone who decides to read it now!

*squeals* *jumping up and down excitedly*

*fangirls like all the way* *faints from fangirling* 

Oh my gosh-I thought you weren't going to ever finish this, and now I just read what you've updated on the story, and I'm just crying and squealing and suspense and.... AAAAHHHH!!!!

You have no idea how many emotions are going through my brain right now!!!! I'm just so excited it's back, this morning when I woke up and saw that the Lake Lellilo thread was at the top of Pudding's place, I thought it was too good to be true, but then I checked the thread and there was more posts, and I just literally started screaming and squealing up and heart is thumping now...and I was so excited and still am so excited!!! I am so excited to see the end of the story! Thank you for bringing it back!!! :)

I know, I'm super excited too! I thought the same thing--and it felt horrible to think I'd have a story never see its ending. But with a lot of praying and putting off schoolwork--Man, it feels so good. And I'm so happy I get to post it here, too, because in all honesty, hearing everyone's comments/theories/ideas/reactions is one of the best & most rewarding parts of writing. (Plus, y'all are the only ones who get the plot--most of my family/friends don't understand the whole "Mystery" thing.)

(Also, when I saw you had commented, I squealed rather loudly as well :)

Well, I'd totally be excited, but I was never in this one. :(
