A Stormy Night
I sat alone in my room listening to the rain pouring hard on the roof. My back was against the wall and a pillow was clinched tight between my hands. I squeezed the pillow so tight that I could swear, it was going to rip apart. I heard the lightning strike an object close to my window. I jumped and a few tears began to stroll my cheeks. I was very scared. I had all the lights on in my room. I just stared out into the space, waiting for the storm to end, or worse, the lights to go out. After a few minutes the room was lighted again and the storm was over. I made a sign of relief.
