The storm

We were all sitting in the big round room. Here we had everything, we had beds and all that was needed for the time being. We were comfortable for now.

He stood up and said: "I have something to say and I would like you to pay attention".

He was not a leader. No, not at all. As a matter of fact, we did not have a leader, we were all together, into this.

But, this time, we felt that he had something important to say, so we keep silent.

"The storm is coming", he said. "A storm like we've never seen before. Rain pushed around by winds of incredible speeds. We need to be careful with this one."

"What do to?", said some of us.

"Not much. All you need to do is take care of the windows around you. Be sure they are closed so nothing bad can come in. Then, we'll all be safe. So I want each one of you, this very moment, to stand up and check your windows. Be sure they are closed."

All of us stood up and checked the windows close by. I did too. Then the wind started and only then I noticed a small window opened. I run and closed it just in time. Wow. One more second and I don't want to know what would have happened...
