(一) It was a cool morning in spring. Jay was riding a bike along a country road to work. Suddenly, everything started shaking badly. “What a terrible earthquake!” said Jay. Right after the ground stopped shaking, Jay got on his bike quickly. “I must go home right away,” he thought. But on his way home, he saw a boy crying. His legs were badly hurt by a falling street lamp, so Jay took him to the hospital first. When Jay got back to his town, he was shocked at the sight: many roads, trees, and houses were destroyed. Also, he heard the news that four people in his town were killed because of the earthquake. Luckily, no one in Jay’s family was hurt. It was the scariest day of Jay’s life.
