part 33 of the Expanded Blue Mountain Stories series: Blue Mountain

Nodoroc’s blue funnel cloud grew larger and darker and the villager’s stopped talking and laughing. They no longer joked with the boys, instead they were watched carefully and Wallace was restrained at night. After three days of hard work, the boys were brought before the medicine man and the chief.

“Tomorrow, you will be bathed and then you will be marched to Nodoroc,” the medicine man said.

John Franklin stepped forward and said, “What happens then?”

“The Wog will choose,” the medicine man answered.

“Will we die,” Sidmouth asked.

“Everyone dies,” the chief said. “Some die brave, some die cowards.”
