17. A Storm on the Horizon

It had been about 2 hours since Aaron and Charles had left. They would just arriving town by now, if they had taken their time like I had advised. I hope they were okay. The wind picked up outside, and Hannah began to cry as she awoke from her sleep. I picked her up and with her in my arms rushed to every one of the windows and locked all of the shutters. This blocked out all of the light so I lit a candle and began to prepare the fire.

 

George rose from where he was sitting on the floor with John-Church to the door. He unlocked it, and peeked his head out nervously. I could hear the sound of wind picking up, and leaves flew by the open door, and some into the house. I heard a tree fall and a scream in the distance. And I couldn't help but worry about Aaron and Charles. If something would happen to them, I would only have myself to blame. What if I killed my siblings? I would never be able to forgive myself. But, no. It wasn't my fault. It looked like a perfectly fine day when I sent them. I didn't know there would be a storm on the horizon. Oh, but I wish I could have known. Oh but I wish.
