Clover High: The Basement

I don’t know how long we waited for Snap, it felt like hours. Finally we heard pounding on the door. Frederick yanked it open and in staggered Snap with a limp figure in his arm.
Oh my God.I breathed.
I couldn’t find the girls.Snap said haltingly,gasping for air. The school shook again. Waitaminute, This is an tornado not an earthquake!
“We must get to the basement!â€? Frederick yelled, ushering us down the dark stairwell.
The flight of stairs seemed never-ending. All I could hear was Snap’s harsh breathing in my ears, I could see absolutely nothing.
And then suddenly it ended, and I fell.
“Watch the last step.â€? Said Frederick. “It’s missing.â€?
Thanks a whole lot.
“Are you OK, Rianne?â€? Snap’s voice asked from above me.
“I suppose so.â€? I said. “Where are the lights?â€?
I heard shuffling and then the room was illuminated. Well, not quite illuminated just less dark than before.
“That’s all the light down here?!â€? Snap demanded sounding annoyed.
“Yup.â€? Frederick said.
