18. Down Into Darkness

The wind whirled outside, it was loud, and hurt my ears. George came and whispered in my ear. "It's going to be a tornado. I can tell." Then my worst nightmare came true. I think I knew it was going to be a tornado, I just refused to believe it. But I couldn't deny it anymore. I had to take action. I rushed to the kitchen and filled jugs with water. I ran to the cellar and grabbed dried meat. I grabbed quilts and an extra layer of clothes for everyone. Then, I grabbed a pail, just in case of.... emergencies. The last thing I grabbed however was my quill and journal. When everything was down in the basement, I opened up the hatch and George carried John-Church (still holding his toy) down the ladder into the basement. Then, taking one last look at the living room, I poured water on the fire and grabbed my lantern. In one hand, I held the lantern, and swept Hannah from her crib and into my arms with the other. Then, taking a final look, I slid down into the basement.
