"It doesn't seem like it's going to stop any time soon, Dave." I softly say, looking out the window. The waves were calm. They didn't seem to be crashing onto the shore like a normal storm would.

"The calm before the storm." David says, looking out the window along with me.

"I never thought about that line until looking at the storm itself. It's seems scary." I say.

"Don't worry about it. It'll go by soon." He says. We walk back to the bedroom where the door was opened, listening to the rain hitting the ground. It was honestly peaceful. I liked the sound of rain.

"What are we gonna do until the storm stops? We can't keep eating everything like you are." I chuckle.

"I don't have to eat food." He says smirking. I push him back playfully and gave him a smirk back.

"You'll have to catch me first!" I shout and run off. We ran around the house, allowing David to almost catch me before running faster than him.

"That's not fair! You did more sports than I did!" He shouts.

"You played sports?" I question him.

"I did in fact. Tennis. Still do when I can." He says.

"When you want!" I correct him.

"I'm out of shape." He breaths. We run back to the room but this time, he's managed to catch me. We fall to the floor and lay there for a brief moment to catch up with our breaths.

"I need to work out more." He says. I chuckle at his response.

"You do plenty of body workouts." I tease him.

"And I'm about to start on that right now." He says and turns his body onto mines. Before he was able to lay his lips on mines, we hear screaming coming from outside.

"David! Lauren!" We jump up from the floor and step outside to see Kaniki running across the front lawn.

"Kaniki! Over here!" Shouts David waving his arms. Kaniki runs over to us, drenched from the rain.

"We have to go. Now." He says.

"What? Why? What's going on?" David asks.

"A tsunami."

"A what?" I gasp. Kaniki turns his body to the ocean.

"You see how the water is calm? Look at the shoreline." He says.

"It looks bigger." David says. "Like the water is being pulled back."

"Rich. Water is pulling out. And once the water starts making its way back-"

"The wall of water will hit land." David sighs. I look back out to the ocean and take a deep breath.

"The calm before the storm."

"Pack up quick. We have to go." Kaniki says.

"But how? We have to ride a boat to get to Honolulu." I panic.

"I have a plane for emergencies. And today is the day. I wish I didn't had to." Kaniki sighs.

"It's better being up there than down here." David says looking at me.

"Go. Go. Pack up." Kaniki urges. David and I run around the room, packing everything we brought with us. We carry everything out and follow Kaniki to the plane he already had set up.

"I'm a great flyer, so please don't question everything I do. If you question or panic, it'll make me panic and we'll dive nose first into the ocean, a place we don't want to be in." Kaniki says as we climbed in. It's stopped raining by now. So it was a clear vision for Kaniki to take off.
