Silence hug in the air as I looked around the room. The air was cold and the night was dark. What was I, a vulnerable pharmacist to do? I heard something break down the stairs. Wait. It was the sound of a glass shattering.  I quickly ran downstairs and noticed a soccer ball laying on the wooden floors of my apartment. It worried me greatly. I shook my head and my heart pounded as I realized the earth was shaking. Was an earthquake happening? Why? Why does this have to happen to me? I shook my thoughts away and quickly rushed back up the stairs. I grabbed my key chain and threw together a small suitcase. I shivered and grabbed my coat, tucking myself in and booking it out of the house. I mentally sighed and booked it back inside. I grabbed my dog, who was named daisy, and armed myself with a loaded gun as I made my way out of the house and to my car. I opened my car door and set my bag and dog inside. I slammed the door and raced to get in as my heart pounded in my chest. I realized I forgot my keys on my desk and rushed back inside once more to grab them. I picked up the dog food and grabbed as many healthy items of food for myself to live. I used a few containers and threw them in.
