Stacy was startled when Max rubbed against her leg. She jumped back, he looked at her with glassy eyes. She came up to him and patted him on the head. He rolled over on his back playfully. Shonda poked her head out of her door and called out to her mom. Is every thing OK down there. Her mom replied, ‘it’s fine’! And so she went back to bed. On getting there her phone rang. Emanuel was calling her.
It was already 10:00pm. She taught of not talking the call, but then she remembered all the events, which had took place earlier on that day, due to the heavy rains. She answered the phone. ‘Hello’! He replied, ‘Good night’! ‘How are you doing’? ‘Are you safe with all this rain?’ ‘I haven’t heard from you all day, are you ok’? She replied I’m fine just going to bed. ‘How are you’? She asked. He replied ‘I’m OK’! ‘I was just a bit worried about you, have you seen the news’?
She said,’ yes’! ‘I know you were worried, but I’m fine and so are you, it’s a school night so am off to bed.’ ‘We can video chat tomorrow please God after school if you like’! He said, ‘OK’ Then disconnected the call. Shonda quickly drifted off to sleep, with the sound of the rain still pouring outside. The next day was Monday morning. It was a brand new day and week full of possibilities. She wanted to be well rested and that she was.
She woke up at 5:30am sharp. To her surprise, the rain was still pouring outside. She came out of he room and headed straight to the bathroom. She took a bath and brushed her teeth. She changed her clothes then headed down to the kitchen. Her mom was already there making breakfast but today she helped. They made eggs, waffles, nature’s cereal and orange juice. Shonda fed Max , while her mom set the table.
They both sat down for breakfast together, after saying grace the began to eat. They discussed what they had planned to do that day: but it was still raining heavily. After breakfast the went to the living room where Stacy switched on the television. The 600am news was on. The reporter on the screen stated, ‘Due to the constant heavy rain fall, the road ways remain closed and persons are asked to stay at’. ‘Do not attempt to leave your home under any circumstance’!
‘There is a number passing below your screen’. ‘If you need food or water, please contact that number’. ‘You will be given further instructions’. ‘This has been a scary situation for all of us, we are all praying that the rain subsides soon’. ‘On behalf of everyone here at the studio, please stay indoors and pray’. ‘Good morning’! Shonda looked at her mom and her mom looked backed at her- ‘what are we supposed to do today’?, asked Shonda. Stacy replied, ‘we’ll figure something out, we always do’.
Max came from the kitchen and jumped onto Shonda’s lap. She stroked his fur, which made him really happy. He licked her hand. She giggled. Stacy left Shonda and Max in the living room. She went back to the kitchen and began to look around. She was deciding, what she was going to prepare for their lunch. She went back to her room and made a call. When she got back to the living room. She saw that Shonda had fallen asleep on the couch, and Max was doing the same next to her.
She went back to the kitchen. Where she prepared- scalloped potatoes, fried rice, green beans, grilled chicken and fresh salad. She also made apple juice. When she finished, she went to the bathroom and took a shower. Three hours later, Shonda woke up her mom was on the other side of the living-room on the other couch viewing a movie. She got up but Max had already gotten up before her. She took him to the kitchen. She fed him she then grabbed a shower. She then re-joined her mom in the living room.
