It was dark and the only light shining was that of the moon as Ianthe ran through the streets of the small town with her cloak flowing behind her. She looked at the time on her watch and gave out a small gasp. The earthquake would hit any minute now and half the town was chasing her. They would be in terrible danger if they stayed our here in the middle of all the buildings. As the earth below her feet began to shake, Ianthe ran towards an open field that surrounded the town. She hid in the tall grass and covered her head as the earthquake hit. It seemed hours until the earthquake had passed. When Ianthe finally felt the ground stop moving, she got up and took a look around. All around her, civilians were helping each other up and trying to take in what had just happened. Ianthe took advantage of the caos and fled before anyone could see her. It really had been hours since the earthquake had began. Now, the sun was rising and there was light again. Ianthe pulled down the hood of her cloak to take in the warm sun, but it was a mistake. Behind her, she heard a voice she thought she would never hear again.
