“Hey,” said Mom. “It’s nine o’clock, and you are still in bed! Get up, breakfast is ready! It is officially your first day of summer vacation. Is this what you will do all day?” “Mom,” said Abby. “Please, leave me alone! I’d like to sleep.” Mom sighed. She went to make breakfast. Abby slowly got up. She dragged over to the kitchen. “Nothing exciting today,” she said. “I think summer break is boring.” Abby sighed. Mom said, “Come on, don’t start off summer so grumpy. Enjoy it!” Abby moaned again. She went to the waffle make and then put in a waffle. She ate it and then slumped onto the couch. She grabbed the phone and called her best friend, Maddie. “Hi, Maddie, how are you doing?” she said. “Oh, not so good. It’s kind of boring.”
Then, Abby went for a walk. She noticed storm clouds forming above her head. She thought this was just normal. She saw a couple of birds flying away from their nests and going far west. “What is this?” she wondered. A couple of people suddenly started whispering. “It’s just a storm,” she decided. “But… why are people so worried?” And that’s when she discovered why.
There was a dark funnel swirling around about a mile away from the park. “Oh my gosh,” she gasped. She stepped onto a bench and informed, “HEY! EVERYONE! LISTEN UP,” she paused. She did not ever think of what to say, and now people were staring at her. “UHH, YOU SHOULD… GO TO YOUR HOMES! NOW! OR HEAD WEST, BECAUSE A TORNADO IS APPROAHING!” Now people looked worried and headed to their cars. Abby decided she should go home herself. She rushed to grab her bike and pedaled very quickly. When she finally got home, she announced that there was a tornado coming. Her family rushed to their basement and watched the tornado pass by.
After that, they were safe at last! Finally! They hugged each other and laughed happily.
