Devastation The bright sun gradually came out from behind Mt. Vesuvius.The buildings, the humidity, everything was like a normal day. Acestes, Neptune and Enzo woke up from their beds. As they wandered around the house, they began to wonder where their parents were.Neptune was a smart and rich boy.They were all about thirteen.Acestes and Enzo were really poor.So poor that they did not get to go to school.

The three were sick of home. They all thought their parents didn’t care about them.The thirteen year olds left the house, taking their clothing and food enough for a few days worth. They headed towards the market.

“I’m sick of this life! Sick of it1 Our parents don’t care about us. You know why? They don’t even let us go to school! Let’s leave home and build a new house for us, and only us,” Said Enzo. “ I agree. We always have to stay at home and do nothing. Life is so boring, thanks to our parents!” Acestes said. “I concur. I’d like to find a place that’s natural, and beautiful.” said Neptune.

They set off to find a home. The grass smelt like fresh lavender. It attracted many Romans. The three boys found a nice and fresh spot to build a home. “Finally! A lovely, natural place to build our home,”said Acestes.

When the parents returned from work, the house was filled with an eerie silence. The parents thought that it was weird, as their children were very noisy. When they entered the house, they discovered it is empty. “Acestes? Neptune? Enzo? Where are you? What did we do? I think our kids think we don’t spend enough time with them, because we always go to work. Also, we don’t even have the money to sent them to school!” They cried. They searched the whole house. No one was there. What if they were kidnapped? Horrible thoughts filled their minds. They were frozen with fear. They left their house and searched everywhere, they went everywhere, but they still couldn't find them, so they walked back into their house and came back with pairs of empty hands.

The next morning, they went to the market to get more food supplies. Suddenly Acestes saw their parents. “Lets pack our stuff and run, our parents are here!”said Acestes. Their parents were too depressed to look up at the bright blue sky, just looking at the ground.

The three went home. They slowly lay down, looking at the blue sky. Just thinking about what they should do. There were two paths in their life, one to go home, and the other to never return. Where shall I go? This is the path of life. Should I go left or right? It’s time to choose. Even though Pompeii is such beautiful place with such tall mountains, green trees that smells like sunflowers. “We have such a good place to live in, but an unbelievable life.” said Neptune. “What are we gonna be when we grow up! A slave?” moaned Acestes.

sky turned black. Suddenly, they got covered in ash. Everything was black, whey did they do such a thing in the first place. “Mt Vesuvius has just erupted and we have gotta save our kids, before they die!” said the parents. Their parents sprinted out of their houses and ran towards Mt Vesuvius. Their parent’s minds were just empty, only one task to achieve, they will have to save their kids before it’s to late, every second counts. By the time they arrived Neptune had already past away, they were crying, shocked and miserable. They heard a voice and it sounded like their kid’s voice from a block of black ash. They break through the ash and found their precious kids, tears are gradually falling down their faces. “Where have you guys been?”cried their parents “You Guys don’t even care about us! Don’t You?” the kids shouted “We do care about you! It’s just we have to go to work.”replied their parents.
