The Power Went Out

by Heather Kinkaid

My friend just ordered out a hamburger and onion rings. I had money out of my purse. Then we waited for my supper.

A few minutes later the power went out. My friend lit the candles. It was dim enough to eat supper and to see the house. Soon the guy came with our food. Then we ate our food. Later we got ready to go to my friend’s house. We brought lots of stuff we needed. I brought my pajamas with me. We went by taxi. There was power at my friend’s house.

When we got home the power was on. We had a lot to put away. And not too long before we had to go to bed.
