The Storm – Creative Writing

A big storm hit the Caribbean islands today. Although storms, specially big hurricanes, are usual things in these islands, this storm wasn’t foresaw by the weather forecasts from the last few days. So it was a bad

surprise for everybody.

One of the many people surprised by the storm is John Brown, an English tourist who was surprised by the storm in a telephone box on the Norwich 21523 street. Before the storm began, John was trying to telephone his mother in London. The line was busy and he had to wait. It was a bit windy and it was slowly raining, so he was waiting in the telephone box. Suddenly, the rain got harder and the wind blew stronger. He closed the door and decided to stay there, because the hotel was far from there. For a few minutes, while the storm lasted, he thought he will die. He was very afraid. But the rain stopped as suddenly as it had started and he couldn’t believe that he was still alive. Then he tried to get out of the telephone box and he realized that the door was stuck. He looked around and he didn’t saw anybody. What should he do? He picked the phone and he wanted to call somebody, anybody. Finally, the centralist answered:
‘Hello! Please, can you help me? I’m stuck in this phone box and I can’t get out of here.’
‘O.K. Calm down! I’m sure that we can do something for you. What happened?’
‘Well, I was trying to make a long distance call and the rain started… and a tree fell over the phone box… and the door is stuck. Help me! I can’t get out!!’
‘Don’t worry, I’ll send somebody to help you right away. Just tell me where you are.’
‘I’m on the Norwich 21523 street. You can’t miss me.’
‘O.K. Don’t worry, sir, somebody is leaving to you right this moment.’
‘Please hurry! I’ll be out of air soon!’
‘Relax, John, we’ll help you. But I have to help other persons, too. I have to hang up now, all right?’
‘Stay calm. We won’t forget you.’
