We had finished school early that day. My friend Phoebe and I were walking back to Phoebes parents work. We had stopped at the bakery in Tower Junction to get some lunch that was around 12:40pm. Once we got outside to sit down to eat it was about 12:50pm. Once 12:51pm struck the whole world just started shaking and screams came from every building there. Me and Phoebe just stood there in shock wondering what to do next. After the shaking had stopped we ran through the parking lot to find my friends parents who were working close by to where we were. Car alarms were going off and that was all you could hear. The streets were filled with liquifaction and dazed people, All the cell phone lines were out of action so it was hard to contact my family. Six hours later my dad rocked up to get me, All the power was off at my house so it was hard to get warmth. On the on going days after we all pitched in the help re build the city and our neighbour hoods. It helped that we went back to school a month later.
