Wind Town 0.1

             After that, the winds came more often. Sometimes they spun, and sometimes even the straight ones blew so fast that anything outside the house was picked up and thrown. As the winds came more and more often, they began to take more than swings and trees. Houses began to disappear into the winds, and so did the people in them. The other kids at school got more and more jumpy. Every time the shutters rattled, someone would scream or cry.
            Not Matt and Sarah. They liked listening to the wind. Mom and Dad would sit with them in the cellar and tell them what each sound meant. None of the other kids would listen to them when they tried to share, and the adults backed away from them like they were scarier than the winds themselves.
            It wasn’t until the town was empty that they understood why.
