THE LAST POSARONA : AMAZING

aegleelffantasy00tola_0059

An angry Larjkins Child is something  AMAZING. The Larjikins are the Casual Observers of Triflora and they don’t often get really angry.

BUT WHEN THEY DO …. !

As soon as she had hidden her Dolls in a safe place, Lamonta set out looking for Trouble. Larjikins are not as big as Giants but they are still BIG and they are extremely HEAVY.

The ground shuddered and shook when Lamonta’s angry feet touched it.  Little Quakes spread out from where her heels thumped down.

The air rippled and whistled and blew as she walked along swinging her arms. Each time she breathed in, the air was sucked back and each time she breathed out, a little tornado whooshed out.

“What in the pixelated world was that ?”

said Pixelito. The Lamonta tornado had bounced him clear out of the sky and onto the rocks. Pixelito shook himself all over and flew after the strange big little girl who had shaken his world. Lamonta was singing as she went along. Her Voice was also LARGE. Something like a volcano erupting.

The baby Eaglets were so scared they opened their beaks and howled and howled. Eaglets look pretty wicked but they are actually very sensitive and very gentle. Mother Eaglet tried to calm them down but then she saw the BONES. And then she saw Little Mannikins crying over the bones.

“ Trouble HAS been here. “

said Mother Eaglet.

She left Little Mannikins to take care of her babies and followed the sound of Lamonta thumping along.

Back in Larjikin House, everyone was waking up and looking for Lamonta. Sure enough, she had left a note. The note said;

“I AM GONE TO LOOK FOR TRUBBL”

Everywhere she went, Beings heard her singing

HERE I COME, TRUBBL. READY OR NOT.

Everywhere she went, the ground shook and the air trembled.

Everywhere she went, Beings stopped what they were doing and followed her. All the Gentle Beings.  There’s nothing quite as scarey as Gentle Beings when they’re  roused up.

SIGNS OF TROUBLE

animatedtiger-17

There was now only one Posarona left to do. Poppy and Saffron and Rose and Nana still had to do something AMAZING.

They were in no hurry because they love their time out. They love exploring and talking and just being together.

They could take as long as they wanted to choose something AMAZING to do.

The POSARONAS set off to enjoy themselves. The Girls laughed and danced and ate the fruit from the trees. They chattered with birds and swam in creeks. Nana followed along behind them.  She was WATCHING.

The first night of their Wandering, they decided to stay with one of the Larjikin families. Noone would call the Larjikins, “ Giants” but they certainly are BIG.  All four of the Posaronas  slept in one bed and still had room left over. They all had a fine dinner and sat around talking till quite late. The Three Girls went upstairs to bed and Nana stayed to have a Yaan with the older Larjikins.

Now, the Larjikins are also known as THE CASUAL OBSERVERS. They are BIG, very BIG – but like Little Old People – noone seems to notice them. The Larjikins casually walk about Triflora. They don’t bother hurrying and they just observe. They just look and see what’s going on. After the Young Ones had gone to bed, the Old Ones took time to discuss some of the Observations the Larjikins had been making.

Grandmother Larjikin thought that most things were going very well – BUT she had a couple of worries.

I  think we might be seeing THE FIRST SIGNS OF TROUBLE! “ said she.

“ Just what I was thinking. “  said Nana. “ What have you good people observed? “

Just small things that don’t seem quite right. The First Signs of Trouble. She is VERY sneaky, as you know.  Here are the things we have been observing.”

Nana thanked the Larjikins and took the notes they had made. She climbed into bed with the Three Girls and the Posaronas took a good look at the FIRST SIGNS OF TROUBLE.

NOTES FROM THE LARJIKINS.

THE  FIRST SIGNS OF TROUBLE

SOME CASUAL OBSERVATIONS.

Wee Larissa, who lives with us, but is not really a Larjikin, was the first to notice something odd. She had climbed up on the Mantlepiece ( where she is NOT allowed to be) and took a look into the Mirror. SOMETHING was looking back out of the Mirror and it was looking straight at her. That was not a Good Sign.

Wee Chatterer says that some of the trees are shaking and trembling when the Birds land on the branches. That is not a good sign.

We know that Trouble has her Cave someplace deep under the Ocean of Turmoil. Brother Barnacle Rock sits at the edge of the Ocean. He is a Marine Larjikin. Brother Barnacle Rock has seen strange comings and goings of the Amphibians.  He actually asked Charlie what he was doing but Charlie shook and trembled and just said “Not much!”

Brother Barnacle Rock does NOT believe Charlie for one moment.

Petrina from the Shimmering People appeared here in Larjikin house just this morning to tell us that she had seen a few signs that  Trouble was on the Move again.

The Shimmerers were meeting strange Beings when they shimmered and the Beings were NOT friendly.

Even the Larjikin Children have observed some early signs of Trouble and Mama Marnie has written notes of what they have seen.

Elizabeth Ann LOVES food.  Just the other day, she found a covered plate of food on the downstairs table of Larjikin House. Elizabeth Ann will eat almost anything but this time she stopped to think first.  Then she called her father.

That food did not smell right. 

That food did not look right.

Something is going on !

The Birds have seen men in war clothes coming into the Forests. Some of them offer seed to the Birds but the Seed does NOT look right and it does not smell right, so the Birds have not eaten any of it. Looks like Trouble to them.

Lamonta Larjikin is the most observant of our Casual Observers. She is washing every one of her dolls and all their clothes. She says she is going to hide them someplace safe until Trouble has passed.  Lamonta says she has seen one Sign Too Many. Trouble IS coming.

LAMONTA GETTING READY TO DEAL WITH TROUBLE.

Now, Lamonta is a big girl. She is a true Larjikin. Lamonta is also a Redhead like Saffron and they are pretty wild and rather tough.

She is VERY angry about Trouble. Lamonta has  3 Dolls and she LOVES them. She likes to play with them in the Sun. She likes to take her Dolls to the Beach.

She does NOT like  anyone or anything who makes life hard for her 3 Dolls.

Lamonta is putting her boots on. She says she will teach Trouble not to bother her or her 3 Dolls.

There is a sign at Larjikin House. It says;

NEVER TROUBLE TROUBLE UNTIL TROUBLE TROUBLES YOU.

Well, Trouble was Troubling Lamonta  and anything could happen now.

TROUBLE IN TRIFLORA : PART 4

64

LOVE is a very good thing in times of trouble. We all know that.

Another very good thing in times of trouble is TOUGH FRIENDS.

And there IS trouble in Triflora. Deep in one of the underwater caves, something is hissing and hating. Its still small. Its still down there in the Dark but its getting bigger and its getting ready to come out.

Nana and the 3 Girls came back into the Garden only just in time but the thing in the cave

WILL decide pretty soon to cause some real TROUBLE.

The good news is this – while everyone was locked out of Triflora – some of the 3 Girls’ tough friends came looking to see what was going on.

Take a look at these new helpers ! They know how to love AND they are tough.
