100WC – Week #1 – William

 And then gradually, things started to move as the earthquake struck. The bookshelves creaked, the drawers fell on to the floor with a violent bang. It felt like an hour but it was probably just a few minutes, until it finally stopped, and everything went dead quiet. Suddenly wailing sirens echoed in my ears as an arm grabbed my shoulder, I turn around and I see my mum’s worried face. “William come out to the front yard, your dad and brother are already there”. I run out into the front yard as a firetruck stops in front of our house.

  1. Hi William,

    I see that you are in New Zealand, so I wonder if you have ever been in an earthquake? It’s a great response to the prompt as I’m sure it would make things move (although not always gradually!)

    I like your use of adjectives; a violent bang, the wailing sirens, your mum’s worried face. Well done!

    Thank you for sharing,
