It was another hard working day. The sun was shining, and the children in the village were out playing around, and they were certainly not concerned about anything. As I was pulling weeds from my wheat field, I heard something very loud, something like thunder. But I thought, "Why would there be thunder if the sun is out?" I ignored it and carried on. After 5 minutes or so, I heard it again. It was coming from the other side of the village. I left my wheat field and went to go look at what was happening. I couldn't believe what I was seeing.  There was a pack of fierce Mongols riding through the village, yelling at people and threatening them. Once I saw their huge horses, I ran back to my house to inform my family and the others. My only concern was getting out of the village, and saving my people.  
      Luckily, my house was right near the busy city, so we had escaped quickly. I informed my family, and the ones closest to me. We grabbed some food, and we quickly left. As I was looking back, I could already see smoke rising from some houses. The Mongols do not play around when they are angry. I feel bad that I wasn't able to save the others but I'm glad my family and I managed to escape.

I think you wrote really good about what was happening in the invasion. I also like how you describe the day so clearly. This was a good blog.
