“1,2,3,4,5 wait”- Abby, Thorrington School

At 4:30 am on the 4th of September 2010 there was a rumble WOW I thought it sounds like a roaring fire but then the whole house started shaking it felt like forever before the shaking stopped. When it did stop we all gathered down stairs in the lounge while dad went to get the emergency kit with the torches, mum did a head count “1,2,3,4,5 wait where’s Mind!?” She quickly ran up stairs into Mind’s room surprisingly she was fast asleep she slept through the whole thing! When we were all down stairs we waited together trying to get to sleep until it was light outside. When it was light we got something to eat (it had to be from the fridge though so it didn’t all go to waste.)

    To Abby
    How did the earthquake feel like when it happened?
    Your story was fantastic because it was really scary
    and great. It was very funny too. We liked the
    part where you said one, two, three, four, five, wait.
