It was raining today, quite heavily I might add. I checked the weather on the news website, it said that it would be a storm, a great big one. The biggest one in the last 500 years!
I was quite shocked, I hated storms; with a passion. My earliest memory of experiencing a storm when I was 3, 12 years ago. It all started when I was with my Dad, lying on the couch with the TV on, the rain pitter pattering on the windows in the background. I liked it, just some normal rain. Until I heard a low, rumble in the distance. My father said it was a storm.
Then suddenly, it went… dark…
I was wandering in the woods with my friends, Anna and Jenna. We were all having a laugh and a great time! Until ‘it’ happened.
We were in the middle of walking on the log until I heard some sort of growl, coming from the part of the woods that were surrounding us. I got really paranoid. Until I realised, big animals don’t live in the forest!
“Hey, did anyone here that?” Jenna asked.
“Here what?” Anna replied.
“That growl.” Jenna said, “It sounded like a bear.”
“Nope!” Anna said.
“I heard it.” I managed to say in a quiet voice.
Suddenly it came rushing towards us.
As it was rushing towards us, we ran.
Deep into the woods.
I was walking along the beach when I saw a seal lying on the ground, It looked happy, I jogged over to it and It went back into the beach.
I was puzzled, but I shrugged it off and jogged back to my trail of foot prints. I suddenly heard a loud ‘SPLASH’ and the seal was back where it was before. I decided to run over to the seal this time, so i could catch it. But nope! As soon as I was about a meter away, it dove back into the water. I groaned, just a little and then went back to my spot.
I heard another ‘SPLASH.’ I didn’t bother going over there. I looked and the seal was laughing!
I awoke to my cat jumping onto my bed.
“Scarlet!!” I cried. I tried to get her off of my bed. Sometimes Scarlet can be sooo annoying.
After I got Scarlet off of my bed, I laid back down to my cushion and I fell into a deep sleep…
“JAMIE!!” I heard my mum scream at the top of her lungs. “HURRY!! YOU HAVE A VIOLIN EXAM TODAY!!” As soon as I heard ‘violin exam’ I jumped out of bed and quickly got changed. I went down stairs and got some water to water my plant. after my plant was watered, I rushed out the door.
I was jogging home from school when I felt a little wet droplet on my nose. I wiped it off and thought it’s only spitting…
Suddenly, I felt multiple drops of water on my face. I started to run, just a little bit faster.
The rain got heavier, I started to sprint, holding my books close to my chest, really tight.
I looked up in the sky, dark, grey clouds covered the blue sky. Then suddenly, I saw some lighting. Being smart, I hid under the shelter of a bus stop close by.
Then the flash of thunder made me jump, I called my Mum to pick me up.
