The trees swayed too hard that night.

Sophie woke up, blinking hard. All she could see were leaves and darkness. Head pounding, eyes burning. Everything stung. She tried to sit up and let out a wail. Every part of her was caught on something. A tree had come through her roof. She was trapped.

The night moved on. Sophie waited, terrified.

“Don’t move,” said a voice. “We’ve almost got you!” She drifted in and out. All she saw were light brown curls. His warm embrace as he carried her to safety. That was the night she met her husband, Mark.
