Trevor’s Travels Eco Adventures: The Ocean Calls
Chapter Excerpt Continued…
A gruff voice sounded next to him. “Trevor, you said ouch. You okay?”
The boy turned, but saw only Stray gazing at him in concern. Trevor shook his head. “That’s funny, I thought you actually talked, Stray. Wow, maybe I’m listening to birds too hard.”
“I did talk. I asked if you were okay. That was a funny looking bug, huh?”
Trevor stared at the dog, his jaw agape, unable to make a sound. The boy sank to his knees, gripped the ruff of Stray’s neck with both hands, and looked into his eyes. “Did you just … what am I, crazy? No, it couldn’t be.”
“Wow, I can understand you really well now! Can you understand me too? That’s fantastic! Boy, do I have a lot to tell you.”
Trevor stroked his dog’s silky ears and buried his head in Stray’s furry neck. “You can talk! I can’t believe it.” The pulsing of his punctured arm caught Trevor’s attention. “It’s gotta have something to do with that weird green bug.”
An unfamiliar, earthy voice piped up. “Well, it’s about time you got the Sting!” Trevor jerked his head and saw a plump banana slug clinging to a leaf.
“You’re the perfect one for the job. Nobody else notices us. They just charge right past.”
Trevor’s head spun. “What job? And how come I can understand you and Stray?”
The slug oozed forward, leaving a trail of darkish-green slime on the leaf. “You, my human friend, have been chosen for a very special mission. They don’t pick just anyone for the loculuna sting.”
“The what sting? What do you mean, mission?”
“The loculuna bug sting. That’s why you can understand us. I’m not allowed to talk about your mission, though. I’m just a humble slug. You’ll find out soon enough. Just keep going!”
