The ones with flaring tempers

Wordle 61
The words to play with were:
blend latch chest current draft string
crack spare temper refrain racket trace strike
* * * * *
The ones with flaring tempers refrained from blending in when the racket increased. Instead they fled on a drafty current, stringing along all traces of who they had been. All that remained was a cracked chest with a latch that didn't work, and no spare key. Why didn't this strike anyone as odd?

Well wordled. You worked all of the words to their greatest potential in an economical way that made sense!

This is great writing, Inger. I could feel anticipation rising, and then the chest. Your final question made me laught, and then wonder what might happen next. Well done.

You know I wound my wordle around a similar theme. A heart that hides will behind a latch will eventually be exposed. SO few words, perfectly locked up together.

I thought of a bunch of disagreeable pirates...their pockets secretly filled, yet they left the chest empty...perhaps each thought the other had left their treasure behind.
My story is a tad longer...:
