It was a clear sunny day, and I was in a good mood. I was ready to end the day, and return back home to my family. As I was walking back to the village from the fields, I began to smell smoke from nearby. "Someone must be cooking something.", I thought. But as I got closer to the village, my smell for the smoke got worse. Curious, I quickly ran to my village. People were screaming, babies were crying.. I couldn't understand what was going on because it was too much. But then I saw ships sailing away from the river. That was when I realized that my village had caught on fire.
        I tried to help everyone I saw. Many homes in the village were burnt down into ashes. I felt so angry, and also devastated. Who would do this to my innocent village? Everyone quickly ran to river with buckets, and scooped up as much water as they could to set out the fires. I'm glad the village is not that far from the river, or else we wouldn't have the chance to save our homes. After everything was cooled down, everybody got together. I still don't know what caused this fire to happen. When everybody came together, they talked about it. It  seems that those ships that I saw sailing away were invaders. They had destroyed most of the city, and when they were on their way out, they also stuck our village. I was angry at this. Hopefully, our village won't be struck again and we continue to make our village stronger and better.
