A Stormy Night.

Extracts from this document...


A Stormy Night The sudden, swift, severe summer storm caught me totally unaware. I was walking down an Old countryside road when the clouds started to gather. I looked around as I creped under a large, dead oak tree. Almost all of the houses on this abandoned street were too badly damaged for me to take shelter in, except for one. The house stood out in the purply black sky. A flash of lightning briefly illuminated the house. The windows were broken, but the actual house seemed fine. I was getting soaked as I stood and watched the house, thinking should I stay under the tree and risk getting hit by lightning or should I go into that old house, but I don't know what could be in there, or if some one is in there. ...read more.

I felt something burning me. I pushed the man away and screamed; Fire. I backed up against the far wall. The flames had already got to the man as I opened my eyes quickly to see a view of the burning house. There was a sudden explosion when lightning hit the roof above me. I was blown out of the window and into a slimy fountain. The sound of a siren was louder than the crackle of the burning house. A fire fighter lifted me out of the fountain. I stared at him. Suddenly, I felt relieved to be safe. I cried the fire fighter reassured me then wrapped me in a blanket. I fainted as I went into the ambulance.
