Summary: A flood is headed to Elwood City. While the children don’t know what to make of it, the adults have a good idea of what’s about to go down…yet even they will be wrong. First story for my new Disasters series. Can also be found here on ff.net.
Buster hated being alone. He sat on the couch, his legs tucked under him as he watched the news. The newspaper had made the morning news because of the basement flooding, but his mother’s top assistant told the people that they were fine, that a pump had been placed inside the room and things were okay for now. He wished his mother had spread the news, but she texted him constantly. She was fine but she was worried about him. He was the same about her, and discomfort grew within him. He wished none of this was happening.
