2. Raging Storm

 

Lightning flashed and lit up the sky. I spotted Father pushing his way through the crowd. “I’m afraid there won’t be any training today. A storm’s coming.” He said. The crowd of cats broke up, murmuring quietly to themselves.

Then thunder rumbled, making me jump. Rain fell in huge droplets. I was soaked again in moments. Lightning crackled again and something groaned behind me menacingly. I whipped around. My eyes widened. A tree crashed down near me and burst into flames. I should have been screaming, but my shriek was stuck in my throat. I tore away from the flames but they just seemed to follow me. Cats scattered, screeching and running for their lives. “Everyone stay calm!” It was like some inner voice took over. Some of them stopped but most kept running. I didn’t get it; the wall of flames kept growing taller even though the rain fell. “You need to hurry; get as far away from here as possible, but stay together! Head for Eventer Pond!” I cried out. Cats ran in the general direction of the pond.

My eyes strained to seek out Aqua, Mother and Father.

Then I spotted Oliver dashing towards me. “Fire! Fire, hurry run!” He yelled. I ran towards him, but a blazing tree crashed down in between us. That’s when my scream ripped out of me.

“Fire!” I could hear Aqua crying out. “Fire, help me!” I couldn’t see her, but I could still hear her. I crept through the burning branches until I spotted Aqua. She was pulling at a broken crumbled body from under a crashed sapling. “Mother!” I shrieked. Aqua looked up at me. Her face was streaked with tears. “It’s t-too late,” She sobbed. “She’s dead.” I froze. Mother’s dead? My brain couldn’t process the discovery. I stared at Aqua, unable to move. She let out another sob and I flinched.

“Move over,” I whispered. I grabbed hold of Mother’s scruff and pulled. I managed to tug her out from under the branch. Aqua and I dragged Mother’s body away from the flames. I raised my head and my ribs racked with coughs. My eyes stung and my chest ached. Aqua was staring at the fire as it devoured our home, and everything we knew. I turned her away and together the two of us carried Mother’s body to Eventer Pond, where everyone else was waiting.
