The ground started shaking. The sky filled with ash and smoke.
“Wait a minute” said Sophie, “Vesuvius isn’t a mountain. It’s a VOLCANO!”
“Run!” yelled Sam, Sophie’s older brother.
They started running, but Sophie remembered something.
“Sarah!” she shouted as she dashed to the orphanage.
“Sophie!” Sam called into the dark, grey sky. Then he saw a strange figure coming towards him. It was Sophie, holding Sarah. Suddenly, hot, red lava started coming out of the volcano!
“Jump into the water!” shouted Sam.
They both dived into the water and swam to the nearest safe place they could find. It was especially hard for Sophie because she had to carry Sarah but they all survived!
