Si Chuan Earthquake

What was I doing 3 hours prior to the disaster?

I was painting a lovely picture of the city, to capture the sunrise. I was in a crowd of 50 people. Today somehow felt a little different from some other days, the animals that I was trying to capture acted very agitated, I knew something was up I just didn’t know what.

I tried my best to focus on my painting, but even I couldn’t paint properly. I told the crowd that I was performing to that they should come back tomorrow to watch me paint. I got on to my blue Sabura, and slowly drove home. I lived in a one story flat in the country side. Just when I parked the car, there was a massive shaking, then the roof of my house collapsed. I ran inside to grab my family, but I couldn’t find them. Could they be at the grocery store, or trapped under the roof.
