27. Charles' Tale

"We heard the wind start to pick up, and Aaron said that he heard someone say it was tornado season. So we went inside a store. We were there for a little while when the shopkeeper left to go to his home nearby but said we could stay here. So we thanked him. Then it started to rain and thunder. I got really scared. But Aaron told me everything would be alright." Charles looked briefly towards Aaron on the floor and fiddled with his fingers.

 

"So, this wall fell off of a shelf, which ripped out part of the wall. I suppose the shelf was built in? I am not sure. Aaron fell, but he couldn't get up because a piece of glass had fallen onto his foot and leg. So I made him a little pillow out of my jacket and stayed by him. It was good until the next part. All of a sudden, a tree fell and the wall collapsed onto where Aaron and I were. Luckily the tree got caught on this barrel and sort of made a wall over Aaron and I. Except a plank of wood fell right on Aaron's head. I'm really sorry Angelica I just didn't know what to do and everything happened so fast!" Charles began to talk faster, and I listened while my eyes kept on drifting back to Aaron.

 

He was probably knocked out. And the leg- I couldn't bear the thought. Even just thinking about it made me wince. My mind just wanted to go back to that this was all my fault. But, I had to push those thoughts away. I had to do something. I just must.
