3. The Tornado

That evening when I arrived back at home I knew that I had been grumpy that day and I was gonna apologize to my friends.

"HELLO!!" I called, louder than necessary. To my surprise, no one answered. "I'm home!" I tried. This time in reply, I heard a scream. I didn't recognize this scream. It was obviously a man, but it didn't sound a thing like John's. I would know because one time I put worms in his salad and he screamed like a little girl. I ran upstairs and checked in every room. No one was there. When I got to my room, though, there was a tall man with dirty blonde air. I knew he must have been a friend of my parents, because he was wearing a starry hat a robe. At first, I had no idea why he was screaming, he must have noticed i was in the room because he pointed to the window. Then I saw it. Coming straight towards my house was a tornado.

  "Go down to the basement." he ordered. His voice was strong and loud. "GO! I'll explain why you didn't see that on your way home from school." I ran down the narrow stairs and was about to open the door to the basment, when the front door rattled. I ran over and looked through the peephole. I was reliaved to see Avery standing there and John runnning up behid her. I quickly opened the door and let them in. There was panick in my sister's face. I grabbed her and John's hand and pulled them all the way downstairs. The mysterious man in my room was down seconds later.

"I'm your parents boss," he explained. "I am also the leader of the good wizards. Igor is he leader of the bad wizards. He created the tornado seconds after you entered the house, Annie. But e made it invisible to anybody not known to magic. Igor started it, to kill me. He's been wanting to do that for as long as i can remember."

"I have a question." John said.

"I'm all ears." replied the man.

"What is your name?" he asked.

"Douglas. Jack Douglas." Jack answered. There was a loud crack as the tornado ran over our house. The ceiling began to crumble and the window near the ceiling shaddered. A few small pieces of glass dug into my arm, and imediatly began to make my arm bleed. Avery grabbed a cloth from her back pack and wrapped up my arm. Jack led us into the cold room seconds before the ceiling fell.

"Annie?" Avery asked.

"ya?" i replied. In return she just sighed in relief.

"John?" she asked. There was no answer. "John!" she sais a second time. Again, no answer.
