I suddenly heard someone whistle. I looked behind me … nothing. As I kept walking I heard tiny voices. I ran as fast as I could, gasping for more air.
“Stop!” said a small voice.
I paused, doing what I was told. I looked up and down, pondering the idea that a tree was talking to me.
Suddenly another voice said, “You are special.”
I thought I was dreaming… I settled down against a tall brown oak.
Finally, it was morning. I dusted off my pants and started trying to find my sister’s doll again.
The faint whistle of a mocking jay echoed through the trees. The sun started to slowly peddle down the sky.
I heard the voices once again.
I had a quick flashback of my mother fretting that I’d get lost. I stopped for a quick break. I settled down against the only sycamore tree in the whole forest.
“Hello,” said a child-like whisper from the trees’ canopy.
My heart stopped, but I replied with a simple hello.
“Follow the trees,” the voice whispered. “There, you will find a box holding the wood’s amulet. Listen for the highest voice to guide you.”
I jumped up and stood there in shock.
My heart pounded; I debated if the tree was actually talking to me or if I was just going crazy.
The voices were amazing, just like the tree had told me they would be.
I listened to each one but no high voice appeared. A few hours later I heard the highest voice out of the whole forest.
“Look down,” whistled the highest tree.
I kneeled to the hard ground, noticing something glimmer in the darkness. A diamond shaped box lay at my feet, flickering like a candle in the wind. I ran my finger across the sculpted wooden top, marveling at the detail of the simple sycamore tree in the upper right hand corner.
I cautiously opened the box … no amulet was there.
