Sam's Stormy Night
Sam scrambled under his bed.
A pair of yellow eyes stared back at him.
“Stormy! You’re afraid of thunder too?”
“Mom picked the worst name for you.”
“Let’s get out from under the bed, Stormy. It’s dusty.”
Bam! Boom! Crash!
Lightning lit up the room and cast large shadows of Sam and Stormy on the wall.
“Ohhh, cool shadows,” shivered Sam.
With the next bolt of lightning, Sam made a bunny shadow hop across the room. Another flash! Sam made a barking shadow dog. When the room lit up again, Stormy swatted at Sam’s fluttering shadow butterfly. With each new burst, Stormy zoomed after her own shadow.
“Maybe Stormy isn’t such a bad name for you after all.”
Before they knew it, the spring storm had passed. Sam was soon sound asleep, snuggled up with Stormy, who purred as loud as rolling thunder.
