Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

You sort through the letters you got in the mail, feeling more and more exhausted as you. There are bills to pay, advertisements to throw away, and magazine subscriptions to renew. You wish you could take a break from everything.

With perfect timing, you throw away a clothing store advertisement to reveal a shiny, brightly pamphlet. In big, beautiful yellow letters reads 'Need a break?'

"I absolutely need a break," you mutter to yourself, and begin to read.

'Want to get away from life for a while? Come stay at Whispering Mountain Resort! You'll be able to stay in a rustic wooden lodge, on the very top of an ancient mountain, surrounded entirely by gorgeous forests! You can swim in the crystal clear lakes and rivers, or enjoy fun recreational activities inside the lodge! Take a peaceful hike, or climb a mountain's peak! Sing songs by a campfire, or go birdwatching every morning! There's something for everyone at Whispering Mountain Resort!
