OUR MYSTERY WOOD
Ava’s Entry (15/02/22)
Good morning. I get up from my bed and walk to my table to get some water. I see the wood, and immediately spit out the water. I start having flashbacks of my dream. It can’t be real. I see a paper under the side of the wood and pick it up. It says, ‘Meet Alana at dusk’. I scream and run out of the room.
I grab my phone and start researching two worlds. I also look up what time dusk is, and it’s apparently around 7 pm. After two hours of deep research, I conclude that I may be okay. I think I am in some kind of parallel universe. I don’t even know how to feel. I swear, the strangest things always happen to me. I can’t even be shocked again.
Once it is 7 pm, I rush back into my room and put on the wood. Alana is sitting down in the same cave, smiling widely. She waves at me, and I wave back.
I tell her about my research and explain what’s going on, and she just keeps smiling. She starts calling me twin and says we can be best friends. She talks with so much excitement in her voice. This girl talks a lot though. I start to get comfortable with what’s going on and find her okay.
She starts telling me about her world and how things are done. It’s honestly fascinating. I tell her about my world too, and she seems to like it. We start getting along really well.
Alana’s world can be described as very traditional. Their houses are made of sticks, they grow flowers to make their clothes, and they communicate using message birds. They don’t have computers, so the mystery wood is a new concept to Alana. It makes me wonder how something like that got there and why we both have it. Also, everyone has a farm, and everything they need grows there. Imagine a world like that? No wonder she talks about it with so much pride.
The most intriguing thing about her world is the way they tell time. They have animals that make different sounds every hour. How did they train them to do that?
As our conversation wraps up, I start smiling too. I think I made a friend. It feels nice.
Alana’s entry (17/02/22)
Yay! I guess it’s my turn to write now. Let me continue our story.
I still cannot believe what is going on. I walk through that cave every day and have never seen anything like this. Over here, it’s not that easy to make friends as most people are too focused on having the best farms. That’s why talking to Ava for the last four days has been quite fun. I have learnt so much about her world, and I love it!
In her world, they have a device or tool for everything. There are these things called cars that people use to move around, the wood is some kind of laptop, and you can see or talk to anyone wherever you are at any time. I do find it boring how they use numbers to tell time. It doesn’t seem as fun.
The most intriguing thing about her world is that they use paper to get anything. If you don’t have this thing called money, you can’t survive. Everything is bought. Can you imagine dying because you don’t have a piece of paper? It sounds a bit funny.
Another funny thing is the wood does not work when I am home. I always have to carry it to the cave to talk to her. Ava says it has something to do with connection.
I get to the cave and hear the loud sound of the cows. It’s time to talk to Ava! I put on the wood and see her crying. My smile drops.
“What’s wrong?” I ask.
