A strong wind had srated up, whistling and moaning through the sick leaves, and frightening Sue and Anne. CRASH! They heard a loud smashing noise as a tree came down in a large gust. They took refuge under the gateway of a building and were not sure what to do. Sue doubted whether they would have the strength to cycle all the way home . But they could not just go on waiting there much longer. " We had better go then . Or perhaps we will be able to get a lift on a truck." Sue went out , her short hair blowing in the wind. It was impossible to speak , so Sue jast beckoned to Anne to start out . As they pushed their bicycles unsteadly onto the road,Sue suddenly shouted, “Hey! The wind is with us!” Anne got onto her bicycle. There woas no need to pedal-all she had to do was to hold onto the handlebars. She felt an almost unreal sense of exhilaration , as if she were floating through the air. “The wind is with us!” Sue shouted again, her voice filled with surprise and elation. “Even we have the wind us sometimes, eh?”
