Nessa looked at the sky. While they were arguing, the wind had pushed the clouds away and eased off.

“That’s good news!” Mr. Sterling said. “For everyone except Jack, I mean. He’s right that there won’t be any story. The legend says the Fountain of Youth only appears after hurricanes.” He frowned. “Or maybe it appears after tropical storms and disappears after hurricanes. Can’t rightly remember.”

“Jack remembers, Mr. Sterling.” Nessa pulled her hand from her raincoat pocket and uncurled her fingers. The silver medal lay in her palm. “He knows all about the Fountain.”

SHOW NOTES

We’re new to the Audacity, the sound program we use for our audio recordings, and to sound effects in general. These are our thoughts on the current episode.

Recording. We recorded this segment in one take, after three practice runs with the microphone off.

Technical. Consistency. Difficult to maintain character consistency when recordings are made a week apart.

Comments. Coming up to the end!

Story changes. No changes to the written version this week. The sentence structure and words worked well in the switch from text to audio.
