I walked toward where everyone was gathered. What was going on? It seemed like the first time I'd seen so many people gathered in a place that wasn't school or an amusement park. The sound of their conversation was scary "what is this I can't live like this, I'm so scared: someone said as they passed. I slipped between people's legs and made my way to the front. I was afraid, but also curious.
It was a huge hole. The hole drilled down into the earth. They called it a sinkhole. I moved a little closer. I wanted to see what was inside the hole. Even though it was midday, I couldn't see inside. All I could see were tree roots and things like that emerging from the mud where it had caved in. I took another step forward “be careful”, someone shouted. The toe of my sneaker went into the hole. The dirt collapsed and my balance wavered. I took a step back in shock. At that moment. I saw something glittering sharply inside the hole. It seemed at once like light and like another hole inside the hole.
