'I think my mother is going to die tonight.
'It begins with no light. My siblings and I hear people yelling and running, as if there is some kind of disaster - an apocalypse, maybe. There is an odd wailing, almost like a howl, that comes intermittently. My siblings and I start to panic. We run up and down stain in the brownstone building, trying to find our par-ents. We don't know where we're going, but we want to escape the unilluminated premises and the horrible sound.' (Introduction)
