It was a dark night. The rafters were swinging in the wind. It was raining so hard it felt like god had sent down a lightning bolt. Trees were swaying side to side. Suddenly I heard a scream! It was the person that I shared a bunk with. I bundled up in my covers and let the wind blow through my light brown hair. Then I heard a softer scream. This time I looked down at my bunk mate. She had bugs crawling all over her. I yelled for the counsellor to come! She did and took the girl away .
The next morning our counsellors told us that the bugs had chewed up her brain. Now before I go to bed I put on bug spray.
