It was a message alert about a hurricane named ‘’ helpful test’’ at a category 6 level. Persons were batoning down their windows, running in the street going to the grocery store and cutting trees near the house.

       At the moment I was plotting the garden as the lightning struck the tar-black sky. A meow sound echo from the hills.  Suddenly the rain came down phut, phut, phut the sound ripen nut makes when they hit the ground.  It was like a Toyota car at its maximum speed of 180km/h. my ears felt as if they were burst. The trees bend, creak and squeak as their limb falls to the ground and leaves not confetti but like ammunition in the air. Little streams raced through the empty street, with her chocolate brown hair.  I became petrified because my grandfather who is visually impaired and I was home alone.

   A sound came from the back door, it was an old man named Charlie barefooted in a cloak with a stick asking for shelter, I opened the door let him inside, and prepared something for him and me to eat. 16 hours and the rain was still here. ‘Tingy. Lingy. Ling’, my phone began to ring it was my mother asking if I was alright and that the road was blocked so she will not be able to come home until in the morning.

The next morning I woke up persons was cleaning up their yard, and fixing the damage the hurricane as cause Charlie was terrified and confused as he opens his eyes no it was not a dream the hurricane was here I said to him. Later that day the road was cleared and my mother has arrived, We all sat laugh, and ate.
