It was cold and raining outside.
I do not know if it was morning or still midnight as it was still dark outside.
I was awakened by blaring sounds of the thunder and lightning,
I was shivering.
I screamed, “Father! Mother!”,
The only reply I got was the creaking sound of the doors opening and closing all over the house.
I live alone with my parents so I became frightened,
I took a bold step to go to their rooms in search of them,
It was a fruitless journey.
I searched the entire house to no avail,
I was too scared to go outside so I went back into my room and hid myself under Daisy, my very loving blanket.
Suddenly I heard footsteps approaching,
Thump! Thump! Thump!
They were getting louder and closer,
Then it stopped,
I released a breath I did not know I was holding,
Almost immediately, I felt strong hands around me,
I was being choked, I struggled, trying to set myself free,
Then everything went black.
That sounded like my mum calling my name,
I was confused,what could be happening?
I stood up and ran to the dining room,
Breakfast was served,
I looked around and saw my Dad,
They were both in such a happy mood,
It all dawned on me, then I smiled.
