AAWC #3 // Story Continued

Hello! It is time for another challenge! Woohoo! Team Meadow is still in last place, but hopefully we can change that!

Team-1

Anyways, prompts I used:

“What are you doing here?”

“This is my house.”

“Not anymore.”

And, the story……

“Done,” Charles said, with a heavy sigh.

I peeked inside and grabbed, only to get a photo of a girl with a bear standing on meadows. On the right hand corner, 11 words, in flowy handwriting.

“What are you doing here?”

“This is my house.”

“Not anymore.” 

“What do you think this means?” I asked Charles. He took the photo and placed his hand on the girl, and instantly vanished.

“Charles? Charles? CHARLES?” I was panicking, where was he? I placed a hand on my chest and took some deep breaths. I had to find the picture he had touched to get to him. I glanced around. Nothing. Oh, where was it? My eyes finally spotted it on the window. I walked over, picked it up, and placed my hand over it.

Immediately I felt a warm glow over me, and I was whisked away.

I was falling, and I could feel my body going limp, before I hit the ground with a ‘thump’.

“Hi,” I croaked to Charles, who was looking just as confused at me.

“Where – what – huh?” The poor boy stammered.

“It’s okay, I think. The photo, I reckon the photo was ‘enchanted’, and it brought us here.” I gestured around with my hands, hoping for some clues.

“Oh. Why are we both so calm about this?” He asked.

“I don’t know. Maybe we both are used to ‘random’ things happening to us.” I sighed, as I knew what I had said what was true. ‘Random’ things were always happening to us. The kidnapping, the new house, the man, the stealing, the robbing, and the most ‘randomest’, the time when both us were stuck in rain, and a man offered us a ride, and he dropped us at our secret hideout. The hideout no one knew about.

I shook the thought off. Right now, we had to figure out how to get out of here, and how to get away from the bear. Wait. What bear? Oh yes, the bear is front of us both that was growling.

I grabbed Charles’s hand, pulled him up and we both ran…..

And that is that. I might continue this for Challenge 4, I might not. We’ll see, but for now, bye!!

Capture 2

My dreams that night were weird- like usual. A man riding chickens, eating popcorn and shouting “I’m coming!”. After a while, I woke up – to see a face staring at me. A familiar face. The face of him. Charles Bladd, the person I robbed houses with.

“You know, seeing your face first thing in the morning isn’t as amazing as you think,” I said as I got out of bed and walked over to the bathroom.

“Really?” He asked in a mocking voice.

“Ohh, yes. Is there water today or….”

“Nope, water supply cut off again.”

I groaned. We both hadn’t bathed for weeks. As I was swimming in my thoughts about hot water, Charles shook me.

“C’mon! Put the masks on, we’re robbing the Robin House today.”

I laughed. “Robining the Robin house?”

“Wow. Just wow. Hurry up.”

I put the mask on and made my way out, with my backpack.

“So, the plan: We sneak in, grab the expensive things, and come back here,” Charles explained it to me like I was a baby.

“I know the plan Mr Smarty Pants!” With that, we both marched down the tunnel, the forest, and everything they had built to keep us safe. After a hour, we reached the house.

Flashback

I was tied up, with Charles. Seriously? We had to be tied together?

We were brought to the old house, and then given our instructions.

“Everyday 3 days, you will rob a new house, and bring back everything here. Every 3rd Friday, I will come here, and get everything, and along with that, I will tell you the names and addresses of the houses you both are to rob the following week. Oh and, I will drop off food. Lots of it.”

And he was gone.

End Of Flashback

We were here. The Robin House. It was a small house, classic bricks, with a black door. We walked up the little path, and pushed against the door. Open. Funny how 80% of the houses we’ve robbed are unlocked. The inside of the house was weird. The interior was beautiful, but the air… seemed fishy.

We both looked around, but… nothing.

“This is surprising…..” I said.

Charles nodded, “Usually we would have spotted – There!” He pointed at a safe.

We both ran towards it, and his fingers started to do their magic. While he was doing that, I looked around the room one more time, just in case I spotted something that we had missed before. Nothing, but I did see a little rug. Grinning, I held it up and  announced:

“Oh my, this would look so cute on you!”

Charles shot me his “annoyed look” and grunted,

“Be quiet! I’m trying to crack this safe.”

“Really? Never would have guessed!”

And that is the end! I hope you enjoyed that! Bye!

P.S – Sorry it was so short!
