“I hate you!” She shouted, following her dad down the stairs.

“Sorry to hear that, I love you!” He shouted back. “And you’re grounded, so stay home!”

“I wish you were dead!” she screamed from the porch as he opened the car door.

She barely registered the noise when it hit. The tornado snatched at random, a roof here, a house there. She died inside as she approached the car, fearing the worst. She was crying, tearing at the branches when she heard it.

“Down here Baby Girl, I’m o.k.”

She loved him.

    We went along similar lines this week, I see. His first response to her was excellent. Well done.

  2. neenslewy says:

    Awww I am glad he survived. A real sense of terror in this flash – well portrayed.

  3. Sarah Ann says:

    A telling picture of a loving relationship, despite the teenage stroppiness.

  4. Hi Turnip,
    Whew, that was a close call. Thanks for the happy ending! Ron

  5. Dear Ms T,

    She was lucky she didn’t have to regret words spouted in anger. Well done.
