BANG! SMASH! CRASH! A massive earthquake was happening all over Christchurch. It’s the biggest earthquake in years.

Gradually, things started to move, pots were falling off the walls as well as everything on shelves and desks.

I run to my desk. My dog was barking in the middle of the room not knowing what’s happening. I crawl over to Marley and grab him by the collar dragging him to safety.

My cat Izzy got hit by glass cups and plates and had blood dripping from her belly. I go to grab Izzy but, smash… a plate falls on my head.
