Excerpt:“Angelique, will you indulge us with your observations of what you smell in the air? Your detailed descriptions of your camping trip have me intrigued. I’m curious to see what you can pick up.”
“All right.” A deep breath through her nose brought a rush of scents into her nostrils, and she stood still for a few moments in disbelief. I’ve never smelled so many things this clearly before. She gave herself a mental pinch to snap herself out of her near stupor. “Well, I smell moist dirt, leaves, the faint smell of flowers—”
“You can smell the flowers from the festival?” Gao’s eyes widened in surprise before his face seemed to take on a knowing smile.
Can he smell the flowers too? How does he know they’re from the festival? When she opened her eyes to study him, she was confused by his expression, but she continued her descriptions of what she scented in the air. “I can smell the flowers and something else.”
“Something like what?” David seemed curious as well, and he took a few sniffs as if to mimic her actions.
“I’m not sure; it’s almost like a wet… Like some sort of…” She strained to describe the aroma, but it was difficult since she had never smelled anything quite like it before. Everyone waited for her to continue, and they all seemed eager to see what scents she could pick up.
She continued to take deep breaths as she walked a bit farther in front of the group, as if she followed an invisible trail. “It’s so slight; it’s hard to define it, and now there’s something else.” Identification of the aroma was no longer a novelty; it had grown into a sensory obsession, and she furrowed her brow in irritation when she was unable to name it.
She continued to walk ahead of the group as she tried to identify the new mystery smell. It seemed to get stronger in the direction she moved in, and she followed it as the breeze carried it on the wind. When she stepped in front of a tree, she paused when David called out to her.
“Figured it out yet?”
She closed her eyes again and concentrated with all her focus on the air that she inhaled. The smell was stronger now even though she remained still. Whatever it is, it’s closer.
“Angelique, come back to us. You can figure it out on the way.” David’s voice held a hint of nervousness, and she debated between continuing her analysis or giving up her fixation. I think it’s moving this way now.
David cried out in a voice filled with fear as he picked up his pace. “Run, sweetie, run fast!”
“Don’t run, Angelique!” Please let me get to her in time!
As Gao gave chase, he watched as Angelique ran for her life into the forest. The rogue continued to gain ground and she darted left and right in an apparent attempt to give herself more distance. When the wolf leaped into the air, it landed on her back before tumbling off just ahead of her. She was forced to the ground and Gao could hear the breath knocked from her body. Oh no! No, please!
