Safely behind the mount, Billy curls himself into a ball, clamping his hands over his ears to shut out the booming explosions happening around him. Billy lost the track of time, waiting and hoping the blasts would end. During this Billy heard a familiar voice, yell out his name. Knowing the voice was someone he could trust, he reluctantly lifts his head over the mound.
“Billy”, said Uncle John. “Either get out here with the rest of us and watch these fireworks, or I’ll send you to the car.”
Billy dusts himself off and walks back to his family enjoying the fireworks display.
