Parallel Universes by Tim Growcott

Parallel Universes by Tim Growcott

Thunder storm
The sky was frowning at Scarlet, like a friend frowning at another friend. The chemistry between the friends
electrocuted the sky. Making the clouds start to become darker, and gray. Scarlet had been thinking about the
fight she had with her friend today at school. She was looking outside the window, her thoughts lighting up the
sky. She felt like she was sitting in the audience at the entertainment center. And the sky was the stage, making
a performance of a lifetime. She remembered the mean word her friend said to her. And the sky automatically
went black.
Scarlet remembered the actions her friend had done. These actions would separate their friendship forever.
Suddenly the black clouds started pouring with rain, so did Scarlet’s eyes. The rain came down faster and faster,
harder and harder the rain became. Scarlet closed her eyes title. Terrifying thoughts flowing through her mind.
Pictures flashing throw her memory. KRAK! Scarlet opened her eyes. KRAK! This time she heard the sound
and saw it. An extremely quick flash of lite completely lighting up the sky. The flashes of light stung her eyes.
She closed her eyes again, her friend’s voice echoing throughout her body. Making her heart skip a beat. She
opened her eyes. They were sore and stinging from the tears.
The lightening had stopped, the rain was no longer pouring, and it was little spitting. Scarlet breathed a sigh of
relief. She felt the slightest bit of happiness tickle through her body, electrocuting her brain to give her only
good thoughts. It had stopped raining. The clouds were gray again. And then as she looked up she saw the
slightest glisten of sunshine shine through the clouds. The storm was over the sun and was coming out again.
’Wow ‘’ said Scarlet excitedly. She stood up and moved her face closer to the window.
That’s amazing Scarlet thought. She was looking at a beautiful bright rainbow. Lighting up the sky with every
colour. Scarlet thought it was the most beautiful thing she had ever seen nature do. The rainbow contained
theses colours red, yellow, pink, blue, purple, orange and green. Every colour had its own unique glow. Just then
Scarlet, realised that nature the sky had felt all her feelings and showed them to her. Trying to tell her that it’s
ok. Scarlet had no presence, the sky was her guide.
