My cursers flashing vigorously as I try and think how to start telling you the nightmare I’m in. Times running out. I can hardly breath, well here it goes. I’m sure you’ve heard it on the news but I’ll tell you anyway. Well it’s hard to say but… The worlds coming to end. I’m sat here typing. I can hardly hear myself think all I can hear are the screams of innocent children and the cries of helpless parents. Every time I sniff I can smell the gas and brunt trees gathering outside my house. I feel like I’m going to boil the sun is swelling and my body is boiling over. I used to love going to school and playing with my friends now those are just memories. One day I was sick of living in fear so I decided to go and get out of this place. As I walked out I could feel the ground shaking and the road and path meant underneath my feet cracked straight down the middle leaving my house in pieces. Jake my dog was falling and I tried so hard to save him but he fell down the giant crack full of lava. At that moment I felt like what’s the point in life any more I’ve lost everything I ever wanted family, friends and my best friend Jake. I ran to the side of my house that wasn’t collapsed I sat in the corner and prayed that I could have my life back. I risked it all and ran over to my remaining friend’s house and stayed the night. Looks like I might be staying here for I while, soon as me and Megan looked up at the sky I knew this home was permanent. We knew something wasn’t right the sky was black no stars no clouds, and then all of a sudden it went freezing. I had a shiver up my spine so did Megan we ran upstairs and slammed the door praying the horror would end. Stage one had ended the boiling hot weather almost killed us, but this was worse. Me and Megan woke up this morning to find every single blanket we owned wrapped around us. We looked outside the window to find everything froze over and frosted, I was about to freeze. I guess this is stage two. Megan told me to stay strong but I know she was hiding, she had it… She had Hyperthermia and I knew she was badly ill. I told her to keep fighting but then bang I heard the loudest noise. The bang vibrated through the whole house, we both trembled and edged towards the window. It was Tornado heading right for us, me and Megan then realised we had to run I grabbed a coat and wrapped Megan up loud and we ran to the closest thing to family, Megan’s Nan’s. Velma Megan’s Nan was very kind and happens to know everything about tornados as see grew up working in Japan and they’ve had many tornados. It was coming towards us I knew we were going to die. But Velma saved us all she installed a tornado bunker seen as she’s a sidekick and knew this day would come. Yes, you may be thinking Megan has a weird family well, yes she has, parents worked in the circus, And her step family, well… you don’t want to know. So Velma and me are the closest thing she has to a normal family. We all huddled in the corner of the bunker. All we could hear outside was banging and the screaming of innocent people and ripping apart our village. After the tornado had cleared we went outside to find a waste land. Dusty black air; Cracks in the floor; frosty trees (well what’s left of them) and no house in sight not even Nanny Velma’s house was still standing. Stage three tornados. I’m so scared of what’s going to happen next. Megan is slipping away from me every second I worry that I’ll lose her and I’ll be left with Nanny Velma. She’s weak, very weak at the knees I have to help her walk now I’m sure that’s not just down to hyperthermia. On my phone I tried to look for her symptoms online, Bad news she has cancer. Velma burst out in tears I wanted to but for Megan sake I kept it inside. Were on the move again. We’ve been walking and walking and walking trying to find a friend of Velma’s who can help us and Megan especially. We stayed there the night just waiting for stage four I just wish it doesn’t come. This morning I woke up to find Megan in her bed unconscious. CPR, Mouth to mouth nothing, nothing worked. Her final words to me were ‘Stay strong, and carry on you’re a strong person don’t let the world defeat you’. I didn’t want to go outside no one did. I didn’t want to carry on. I don’t want the world to see me like this they won’t understand no one will, not even Nanny Velma. She’s not even my Nanny! But she was Megan’s and I can’t let her see me like this, no it will just upset her even more. I took on Megan’s words to stay strong and carry on, well I’m carrying on. Alone. That morning when Velma and Mary her friend was asleep I snuck out and faced whatever the world had for me next. I walked with a skip in my step and with Megan in my heart towards the one safe place I know. My Mothers abandoned house (only for emergencies she said). But then came… Stage four, Tsunami. Like a horse on a race track the water came from out of nowhere. It came pounding towards me but I faced it I grabbed on to the closet thing possible. A lamppost I held on for dear life. But I knew the power of earth’s forces was too much. I Let go of the lamppost and stood in the middle of the path. Maybe. Just maybe. This is my destiny. At least I will be with Megan and all my family. Oh and I didn’t tell you did I. The names Crissy. And that was my storey or my nightmare as it ended. Here comes the water I better take it as Megan would of wanted. …… Blank… By Kayleigh Manning
