Thunder and lighting. The sea was surging waves. Standing on the beach by the sea, Old Henry was very calm. There is no expression on his face. He just looked at the distance in silence.
In the distance, the bridge across the sea was tilting slowly. All the cars on the bridge slipped into the water. People run away and fell, yelled loudly for help. But that was useless. They slipped into the water with their cars finally.
Now is the end of the world!
And then a little more further was the center of this city. A lot of black smoke was rising. The streets were full of rampage cars. Some people got off their cars, they rushed into pharmacies and supermarkets, scrambled for drugs and foods. More than this, some people armed with guns robbed the food of the elderly and children. Everywhere can here the voice of crying and shouting. The evil side of human exposed this time. But there was no police or national security personnel here to maintain the order. Because everybody was fleeing the city.
A car rushed to the beach. Old Henry did not look back when he heard the sound.He knew that who was coming. Lily-his daughter got out of the car and stood alongside her father . Now, a huge wave was forming quickly on the sea.
“When I was 11, I took $32 from your wallet.”Lily looked at distance and said.
“When you were a baby, I once dropped you on your head.” Old Henry smiled and recalled.
“When you came to my house and you brought some pictures. I lied when I said I didn’t remember. I remember everything. I remember that we were right over there and that is when mom got that picture of the house.” She pointed to a house not far away. “It was a perfect, happy day, I came down here to let you know that.”
“Thank you.” Old Henry looked at her eyes and said.
“I have miss you since then,Daddy, we were parted for a really long time...” Lily burst into tears.
Old Henry came to the front of Lily and hugged her tightly. He stroked her head gently.
Now the waves were completely formed and rushed to them.
“I miss you,too.”
