No one told them about high tide

Every five years, a tsunami hits.

Rober and Laura were tired of City living and were at the point, they would do anything to get away from the noise, pollution, the density and the filth.

They attended a wedding on the island and fell in love with the sky, the water and the solitude. Their real estate agent swiflty found a newly built home, put the sales package together and was off on a two-month trek to Himalayas. 

 

Laura could not have been happier.

She carefully unpackced their belongings before they had to travel to Egypt for a month-long meeting about Climate and Change.

The night they returned to their beautiful new home –  there were strong winds, then rain.

Rober said he had never heard a noise like the one that rumbled outside their home that night. It sounded like a train – a massive train – traveling at high speed. Within a minute they heard the ocean barrelling towards their home.

Tsunami.
