Chapter 1

Loud crackles of thunder continue to ring throughout the night, causing the lights in the apartment to flicker on and off. Closing the closet door, I sauntered into my living room.

Throwing myself onto my living room couch. My phone rings. I pick it up looking at the ID caller listed. “Unknown” it read. I click the red button on my screen.

Curling up on the couch, I flick through the tv channels. Finding nothing good enough to catch my eye, I turn Hulu on. Hoping to finish or at least start another show.

The lights flicker again before suddenly...They all go off. I hurriedly feel around for my phone. Feeling the cool case against my fingertips I tap the screen hoping for the light to come on.

Looking at the time it read '9:30 pm' the day and date running underneath. A red flash comes over my phone enabling me to get to my flashlight on my phone.

It was a flood/Hurricane warning, feeling the panic rise inside I gather up my phone, charger, tablet, and computer. Heading to my bedroom.

I quickly toss my things on the bed, heading out the bedroom door to instantly check on my windows making sure I hadn't open any of them this morning. I check the front door as well to make sure it's locked and secure.

I double re-check my windows, feeling paranoid I re-check the door once more. After finalizing the fact that I had secured and doubly locked everything up.

I went back to the bedroom, feeling my way around the house. Stubbing my toes as I walked stupidly into a wall. "Ouch," I say. grabbing for the nearest thing that was next to me.

Limping like a drunk off the side of the road, I finally made it back to my room. My pajama pants falling down slightly covering my feet.

Consoling my sore foot I gather some cover and position myself comfortably enough to enjoy a good funny movie. Nothing absolutely nothing could ruin this evening.

But I was inconsiderately wrong, getting good and cozy with a few candles lighting up the room, I began opening up my computer to find a good movie.

Completely forgetting that Wifi is terrible during a storm. "Ugh, of course, there's no wifi". Shutting my computer forcefully I lie back.

Checking my phone for any weather updates, none so far. I check for messages or missed calls over the last hour. Nothing.
