The Storm

At night I went to bed very early because the next day I had to wake up early to go to school. That was when this huge storm began and I couldn't sleep. I put my head under the blankets. I was a bit scared even though I'm not afraid of the dark. I roused out of bed and went to the window. Ghadeer came very disturbed. She couldn't sleep either.
''I'm afraid there's a big splattering storm going on here. Your hands are frozen ice, you should have enough blankets to sleep on,'' she said.

I prayed for myself to be safe. I once heard  the news that a flood had started in Dubai mall and the aquarium broke so they were getting it fixed. I tried to slumber in bed I couldn't. I didn't know what to do. I switched on the light of my bedroom, opened my wardrobe to take out my sweater. I put my sweater on and nuzzled in bed. I had to sleep because the next day I had to wake up early for school. The ferocious wind went on howling and the storm was getting bigger and bigger. There was a lot of glacial ice.

I was worried sick about Baba and Khamael. They were taking a walk in this icy storm. Khamael's phone was in her pocket and it was frozen after she took it out of her pocket. I felt gloomy when I heard this news about the flood water that had entered in Dubai mall. I also heard some more bad news. It was about an old woman. She was standing in the middle of this storm. She was heading to Global village and the gates had closed on her so she died much to my dismay. While the storm was hitting I felt so sorry for the people that are fixing the Dubai mall.

The next day at school everyone was talking about this huge storm that has just happened. Some of them thought it was an earthquake. But I was certain that they are wrong. I didn't correct them even though I'm the most clever in the class so the teacher did instead. Earthquakes don't ever happen in Dubai or Sharjah. Those kids are just saying that to be funny.


  1. Very nice description of the storm. I felt the chill as I was reading it:)

  2. Hahaha! An earthquake? lol! so silly!

  3. Why does Khamael always choose to go for walks in the worst weather conditions???

  4. I don't know. She likes to go for walks.
