Just something I wrote for fun.
Once upon a time on a dark and stormy night, the trees danced in the loud howling wind. The wood squeaking and crunching making the tree sound alive and in pain. Being bend and shook in the wind. Branches tapping on surfaces they can reach. The atmosphere is eerie and spooky making every one inside the house on edge. Their hair standing up with every scratch and crunch of the big old oak in the garden. Rain is bashing against the window, So hard that you cannot distinguish the drops hitting. Splash after splash of water stream across the window like buckets being emptied.
Slowly you can hear the thunder rolling into town and lights flicker the closer it comes. Making the ladies in the house even more jumpier. A loud crack opens up above the house and the members of the family toss over the table and spill the drinks on the floor. Is not the night to be watching scary movies. Another loud thunder makes the little house shake violently. Plates, cups and the likes tinkle from the kitchen, and the toilet swirls and bubbles of air explode in the pot. The sewers overflowing with rain. Mom and her two daughters crawl together on the sofa and hold each others hands firmly.
Dad as manly as he can be stands in the middle of the room with a firm look on his face. “Do not worry, It is not that bad, I am here to protect you”. Soon as he spoke those words a bright flash lights up the town followed straight away by a violent crack of thunder making the lights flicker and then go out inside the house. Lots of cups and glasses braking. High pitched screams filling the room. And a loud thumb is followed by a manly scream for help. “Ouch, god damned, that hurts like hell”.
With slaps on the floor dad is trying to find his way to the fuse box all the while mumbling lots of swear words.
“Honey, the candles are in the kitchen” The woman shouts not knowing where her husband has gone. It is a chaotic night full of storms out side and inside the small house. “Leave me alone, I am trying to find the fuse box woman”
A loud noise comes from the hall way, Things falling and the husband starts shouting. “That was my fucking eyes, who the fuck put that here”.
“CUT… CUT, is it so hard to keep you to the script”, “Okay people, clean up the shards, put every thing back, actors take 5. We will do it again from the top”
