"Find the word before it pours on the book!"

She exclaimed over the building noise. Josua and Kate immediately snapped as Josua teared through the dictionary.

Our hands our clean, Lynne.

The three siblings tore through the book until they found the T section, then rapidly searching until they found the word. The wind began to pick up, and thunder rumbled

"Tempestuous: of, or relating to a tempest, or a storm. synonyms are turbulent or stormy." Kate read, barely heard over all the noise.


James came rushing over. Kate quickly put the magical book in her jacket.

"Get inside! There's a huge storm right over your heads. Are you blind?! Get up, get moving!" He yelled. It began to rain. A lot, and hard.  Josua grabbed the large dictionary, and the three of them ran into the house.

The clay on the twins' feet was gone, washed off in the rain of the huge, whirling tempest.

The End
