The rain poured down like a monsoon, and soon the people were wading through the water up to their waist, then up to their shoulders. People cycling on bicycles had to leave them behind, and people carrying their belongings on their backs were raising them up high above their heads so that they didn't lose them.
I looked around for my family, and saw my mum stood in the street, horror and realization on her face. I rushed over to her and grabbed her arm shaking wildly.
'Mum! What is it? What's the matter? We need to get off the street before we're swept away!'
She just stared at me with that same terrible expression and said in a small voice, 'I've seen this before.'
'What?' I shouted over the pouring rain.
'I've seen this before. In a vision.'
And then I knew what she meant.
My mum has these kind of visions of things that are going to happen in the future. She sees the exact event unfold right in front of her. Sometimes she can ask questions and she hears the answers, but other times she just sees flashes of the event and has to piece it together, so before she knows it's happening, it's already been and gone. The events are mostly good, but sometimes she sees bad things that are going to happen. This one doesn't look good, at all.
'I saw it recently, and you were 17, and I thought I had enough time to get you out of the city, if we traveled away it might not happen. But we're too late! Cass, it was horrible! You, your brother and I need to get as far away from here as possible and find a place to hide!'
All of a sudden she snapped out of her daze, grabbed my arms and started franticly looking around for my brother, Rik.
'Where is he?! He was right here a second ago! RIK!' She screamed.
I scanned the crowd, but I couldn't see him under the torrential rain. 'Maybe he's already run inside, mum, it is pouring down with rain, and he's clever. He won't want to stay out in the rain. But he won't have gone far. Let's have a look in those buildings over there,' I said pointing towards a group of large flats people were rushing towards. We need to get inside before we catch pneumonia.
Once we were inside the flats, mum dragged me through all the rooms, pushing past people and nearly knocking them off their feet in her haste to find my brother. 'RIK!' we called, but we couldn't find him.
Mum kept checking out of the window, as if she was waiting for something to come hurtling towards the building so I asked, 'Mum. What's going to happen? Why are you so scared? And why are you looking outside?'
She stopped in her tracks and closed her eyes trying to think of how to word what she had to say, 'We have until the rain stops, and then the end of the world begins.'
