I Will Never Forget The Day Until Pacific Ocean Change

It was a day of suprise to my neighbous house. Where all bid us a good night. We all went to sleep as I was alone in the house thinking why and why my fellow neighbous were not comfortable. I could hear some voices outside which made me not to sleep a little bit. at about 10:00 O'clock at night, i heard some screamings which made me wrap my whole body with blankets. I breathed my lungs out. I was not able to utter a single word. but i gained courage and screamed loud enough to awekene the dead. While i was stiil in my cosy bed, you could hear some steps everywhere, others ran and ran, as i thought they wanted to steal. when within a dog's tail, I tip toed to the door, I opened it slowly then i went where my neighbous were, ,they were shocked, but I comforted them as they were crying. We seated while standing until morning, they told me i have help them. We all celebrated together, and appreciate the might night which layed in our hands. Ill live to remember the goodness of how i help my fellow neoghbous.
