Let us enjoy reading this one of Modern Stories of Home Alone .
It was a dark and stormy night.
I was alone at home and about to go to bed, when I saw a scary shadow figure at my window.
"Who’s there" I shouted.
Suddenly there was a flash of lightning followed by thundershower.
I saw a lion’s face followed by a scary thunderous roar at the window. It looked like the lion from the local circus that had been announced missing on the television news channel. I felt very scared. I ran to my bed and pulled my blanket over my head. I started to shout for my parents but there was no reply. Then I remembered they were at a late night party.
I peeped out of my blanket but it was too dark to see anything. Then I heard footsteps.
They were getting louder and louder. Soon the footsteps died off.
The grand father clock struck 12. I went back to bed and tried to sleep, but couldn’t. I felt too frightened. I sat up my mind full of scary thoughts. After some time passed, finally I fell asleep.
I woke up only after eight in the morning and switched on the TV news. I was excited to see the lion was already trapped in the wee hours of the morning by the ring master of the circus. I felt very much relieved after the news.
Later I narrated the whole incident to my parents.
They were dumb shocked and decided in future not to leave me alone at home during night.
Сотрудники Никитского ботанического сада вместо елки украсили к Новому году елочными игрушками, "дождиком" и гирляндами 20-метровую секвойю и ИХ. По словам сотрудников, такой "декор" смотрится красиво и необычно, и туристам очень нравится. Коллекция ИХ, собранная в Никитском саду, считается одной из лучших на Украине, причем некоторые виды достигают трех метров в высоту. Назовите ИХ.
