Stuck inside

Dad cried out in pain1. He had just stubbed his toe2 on a space toy3 laying on the floor.

It was hard to see anything. The storm had gone on for a couple days. Lightning flashing through the clouds4 had caused the lights5 to go out.

During the day, my brother and I played catch around the house. Dad had made us a ball with some rolled up socks to toss6 around safely.

At night, we huddled together7 for warmth. My brother clutched his GI Joe8.

I wondered9 when the storm might finally end.
