21. Predictions

The storm had been going on for an hour. I had set up blankets in my lap for Hannah, and she had somehow managed to fall asleep. John-Church had done the same in George's lap, and I could see why. Even though it was only probably about noon, the storm had made the basement and the rest of the house dark. Honestly, if I could, I would be sleeping, believe me. Maybe if I didn't have 10,000 things on my mind.

 

"So this is what they don't tell you..." George whispered to me.

"It's actually kinda cozy. I mean, if I could get past all of the worrying, it would be kinda nice. But, I'm mean, I am here and my brothers could be in a tornado! Or what would my father or mother do? I don't know..." My voice trailed. There was a lump in my throat but I was trying not to cry.

 

George put his arm around me, and rubbed my back.

"Don't worry, Aaron and Charles are fine. They must be."

There was a pause.

"I can just feel something is wrong. I know it." At the time, I didn't think I could even be predicting like my mother did so many times. But it turns out I was.
