Title Lightning
Description He smiled, white teeth in stark contrast to the soot. "Neither do you, honey," he shot back, "The fire is out " "Oh. that's wonderful I saw the lightning strike the Temple, then saw a little smoke, and knew this wonderful place was on fire." "I did too. [ was outside, saw the bolt, and ran over here Good thing I live so close. Gathered up two neighbors as I came." "How did you get in? These east doors are always locked " "The watchman happened to be up here when it happened. He unlocked and we all ran up the stairs He found a fire extinguisher and we got it out right away. The hole isn't really that big." As I had reached the top of the hill before going into the Temple, I had glanced north. The highway to Ephraim was black with cars, bumper to bumper To my young eyes, it looked like the entire town was coming. Now, people were pouring onto the grounds from every direction, all of Manti converging, too. "We had better get out of here I don't want anyone else recognizing me, and anyway I need a bath." Wagging his finger under my nose, he told me, "I'm quite sure no kids are going to be welcome!" He ran down the stairs. But the first of the newcomers, some of the firemen, were coming up. I was scared Seeing a small door, I ran across the room and went through this door closing it tightly behind me. There was a lot of commotion in the area I had just vacated. I could hear people shouting and talking, much shuffling and jostling, some even forced against the door in front of me, thumping as they bumped. I'm going to be in here a while, I told myself I looked around the little room. It was painted stark white and there was nothing at all 15
