Earthquake Experience. Hear my story.
Canterbury Eearthquakel. My Story...
I was eleven when the murderess tremours first made there appearence. I had a cold and I couldn't sleep, so I read for an hour or two. My lamp went out first. Then It went in slow motion, you know, like in the dramatic movies. The rock was small at first but slowly I heard stuff falling to the ground, I could hear my little sister Kate screaming in the back ground, as the tremours tripled in size, mum was yelling, no, she was screaming, for me to get to the door frame I was terrified of course, but it was numb because I had NO clue what was happening. It went on for a few seconds, then it... stopped. It just stopped. I was so confused but mum said, "Girls, I give you an earthquake". My other sister Jamie whimpered. I screamed slightly when a loud knock banged on our door. "Hello Sharon?", I exhaled, it was Melissa and Courtney, my next door neighbors. Mum tried to open the door, but it was stuck. "Can you girls pleaswe klick the door open?" Mum asked, I noticed mums voice was shaken and it scared me because mum never ever shows fear.
