At 6:00 in the morning, Amanda-Rose was in her bed planning pranks to prank on her family members – especially her twin brother. Ever since her brother pulled that on her during Light Stone Adventure Camp, she’s been planning revenge. Amanda-Rose was best known for her silly pranks. She lived in North Carolina Charlotte, and was 12 years old. When she was younger she went to Sparkle Days Kindergarten of Charlotte. Now she was a part-time artist and prankster. As she was just about to start on her school painting, she heard a knock on her door…
When she opened her door, her parents were there. Amanda-Rose thought this was weird as it was 6:30 in the morning. She was just about to ask what happened, when as if they read her mind.
Her dad said “We’re going to… BANGLADESH!!”
“Why do you have to do it at 6:30 in the morning?!” asked Amanda-Rose.
“Oh, we didn’t want Jake to know. Don’t worry we’ll explain!” answered mom. For a second she forgot who was Jake, then she remembered. It was her twin brother! How could she be so stupid?!
“As you know, Jake doesn’t like any sort of vacation, not even for one day. So we would just make it a surprise… but don’t tell him!” added mom. Then in a whoosh they were gone.
Amanda-Rose was taken back with the sudden announcement. She thought how they were going to bring Jake on to the plane. She also couldn’t stop thinking about how many Floods happen in Bangladesh.
That night, Amanda-Rose had dreamt when they arrived there would be so much rain in ten seconds… BAM! A Flood occur and everyone would have to evacuate. What if Jake, mom and dad couldn’t make it? Who would she have to live with? Of course she had her grandparents but Amanda-Rose never really liked them. She could live in her friend’s house. However, they would treat her differently. She wouldn’t like that. Maybe she would have to go to the orphanage. Though how about they’re house? No one would be living in it. Maybe she would have to earn her own money. She was thinking too much. She just had to relax. It was only a dream…
The next morning Amanda-Rose was very tired. She checked her temperature and it was at 40 degrees. She was just about to call her mom when she came bursting into her room. When mom saw the thermometer she asked “Do you have a temperature?!”
“U-u-umm. M-my t-temperature is 40 d-d-degrees…” stammered Amanda-Rose.
“Well you’d better get better tomorrow because tomorrow is the last day of school and then the next day we’re leaving for Bangladesh.” said mom.
“Ok, but can you get me a Panadol?” asked Amanda-Rose. Mom nodded and went to get the Panadol. While Amanda waited, she thought she haven’t had anything yet she should start packing now she was in the middle of packing when her mum came in.
Mum looked surprised. “Sweetie, why are you packing? Your father and I packed it for you.”
“What?! You should have told me. Plus, I didn’t see any of my clothes missing?”
“Oh well. That’s because we bought new clothes specially for Bangladesh.” mom answered.
“I hope I look nice…” Amanda-Rose nervously said. Mom chuckled.
On the last day of school, she was so concentrated for tomorrow, she couldn’t concentrate in class.
On the next day…
Amanda-Rose and her family arrived at the airport the next day. It was a total struggle bringing Jake.
Just as they were about to go on the plane, Amanda-Rose felt sweaty and dizzy. It was quite surprising as usually she would be hyper and excited. She guessed that it was just because of the dream. It wouldn’t be true… right?!
When they were on the plane for 5 hours approximately, there was an announcement. They said “Sorry for the inconvenience. We will arrive to Bangladesh a bit later than expected due to a Earthquake warning. We hope to have a safe trip with you. Thank you.”
Earthquake ?! That was so unexpected…
When we arrived, everything was calm. The sun was shining like the stars. It didn’t seem as if a Earthquake was going to occur. Just as Amanda-Rose was sitting down, suddenly people were screaming and the floor was shaking. My mind was swirling with questions. How was she going to survive? Was she going to die? She realized that every time there was an Earthquake you had to go under a table. She quickly grabbed her family ran to the closest table she could find.. She didn’t realize she was screaming when the shaking suddenly stopped. Amanda-Rose was so happy and relieved. She even let out a small whoop! Although, she forgot something they learned in school. After an Earthquake a Flood usually happens. She forgot all about it.
They were so relieved. When they almost arrived to the hotel, she saw people pushing them into hotel. The same feeling from before was coming back. This time she had a better idea. Once again, she dropped all her stuff and dragged her family up the stairs. She had already guessed what has happened. While they were stumbling up the stairs, Amanda-Rose was screaming for everyone to get to the highest floor. They had finally made it to the 14th floor. Everyone had made it!… or had they?! Mom… dad… Jake…YAY! They were all there! Amanda-Rose went to the window to see how it was downstairs. Everything was destroyed… at least people were saved.
Mom has already booked for the plane and they were already on the plane.
Arrived at Charlotte
They have already arrived at home. Then it her! Today was her birthday. Then out of the blue her parents said happy birthday!! They apologized for everything that happened. From that day, Amanda-Rose had always remembered it. November 4th 2016…
