A rainy day

The Borneo Post - Good English - - News -

It was a Sun­day even­ing. I was stay­ing in my room and watch­ing the weather out­side from my win­dow. Dark clouds were com­ing down and cov­er­ing the blue sky. Be­cause of the stormy winds, the branches were sway­ing. Men, women, and chil­dren were hur­ry­ing home. First, a light driz­zle started and soon, it turned into a heavy down­pour. I felt scared as I was alone in the house.

Muddy wa­ter flowed along the drains into our gar­den. The traf­fic moved at snail pace. Then I saw a man look­ing for some shel­ter. He ran to a way­side bou­tique. He kept look­ing out for the bus, but as there was no bus, he got into a taxi.

As it was tea time, I went to drink some­thing hot, I had a cup of hot tea. At last, my brother came home and I was happy. He was wet and I gave him a towel to wipe him­self.
