Today is the last day of the I'm Hearing Voices Character Blogfest hosted by Cassie Mae and Angela Cothran. It has been lots of fun reading what everyone else has written. It's also been quite challenging to create pieces I'm satisfied with. Today's challenge was to write an emotion in 250 words or less.
I hope I was successful. Here is mine (at the end I'll let you know what emotion I was going for):
"Would you stop that! You're making too much noise!" Elodym says in a loud whisper. "They're bound to hear us." Ryn continues tinkering with something. "Hey, I'm talking to you!" She nudges him in the shoulder with her fist.
He looks up as if waking from a dream. "What was that for?" He asks rubbing his shoulder.
"You're being too loud!"
"You're the one talking!" He fires back.
"I don't understand why we're waiting here in the middle of the forest. We should be out there helping. Instead I'm stuck here with you. It's so stupid. We're wasting our time!" She throws her arms up in the air and paces like a caged lion.
"Hey it's not like this is my favorite assignment either sweetheart. But we follow orders and both Shen and Nakyte want us here."
"What are you doing with this thing anyway? It looks like a piece of junk." Elodym grabs the contraption he is working on and it breaks into a hundred tiny pieces. Her mouth drops open.
"OHH come on! What did you do? You ruined it!" Ryn says. He fights to keep his voice low.
"I didn't do anything! And SHHHHH!" She bends down to pick up the pieces but he bats her hand away.
"Stop that! Don't touch anything. Go over there and be the lookout. We're supposed to be watching to see if there is movement in the camp."
"Well if anyone is around, they surely have heard all of your racket!"
I hope you were able to guess the emotion was annoyance or frustration. If not let me know what you did think. I'm looking forward to read what you guys all came up with for this one.
