It was late one night two weeks ago.
The rest of the family was asleep while I was on the computer working on a story. The only sound you could hear was my fingers clicking across the keyboard.
Suddenly, I heard a deep rumbling sound that seemed to bellow up from the earth. I paused and looked around in concerned wonder.
Then I felt the shock wave hit. The floor began to shake and quiver. It was then that I heard the high pitched girlish screams that pierced my ears.
Two of my daughters came rushing out of their rooms to me.
