Run for shelter.

Take cover.

Our picnic is over.

The storm is coming closer.

The waves are getting taller

and more violent.

The palm trees are waving their branches

in frantic confusion.

The weather had been perfect,

but now the heavens have opened.

Lightning is flashing across the sky.

Followed by loud rumblings of thunder.

We must find shelter right now.

Before it’s too late.

Can we make it to the Town Hall in time?

Those are rooftops flying over our heads.

What else can happen to us?

Find out in THE DEAD GAME.

        Thanks. This is from my book. They live in Florida. Beaches and beautiful sunsets. But dark shadows at night. My mind always moves to the creepy.
