June 12th, 2012 at Arizona

It begins in a hot summer day in Arizona. A tourist family from California always wanted to go to the Grand Canyon. They got sick and tired of the entire Earthquake happening in California. They just wanted to get away from it for two weeks. Their names are Will, Amanda and their son Bobby. Bobby always dream on going to the Grand Canyon ever since he was 12 years old. As for now he studies photography in college. He can’t wait to get there, just to take beautiful pictures at the Grand Canyon and the Colorado River passing through it. Will and Amanda just wanted to see it for fun and they’ve promise Bobby to take him to see it.

Will is driving along with his family across the desert of Arizona. He tries to found out how to get to the Grand Canyon with his GPS.  Amanda asks him, “Are we almost there yet?”

“Yeah will be there in 20 minutes,” he replied.

20 minutes later

They get to the Grand Canyon west rim were the sky walk is.

“Wow we are here, I am so happy now.” said Bobby while he holding his camera.

There were hundreds of people on the sky walk taking pictures of the Grand Canyon. Will and his family got out of their car. They all enter the sky walk. Amanda looked down, while she is being scared. Bobby thought, “Wow this is so beautiful.”

He started taking pictures of the Grand Canyon and the sky walk. This is the pictures he took.


After he took those pictures, he smiled at his mother. Will decided to go inside the Sky walk café to get something to drink, he ask Bobby if he want anything.

“Hey Bobby, I’m going to get something to drink now. Do you want anything?”

“No dad, I don’t want anything.” Bobby responds.

While Bobby taking pictures of Amanda, Will went inside the café to get a drink. Bobby felt a little rumble on the sky walk. He wanted to know what it was.

“Did you felt that Mom?” He asked while he started to get worried.

“Yeah that was strange. It felt like a little earthquake. I think it will be best if we get off the sky walk.” She replied.

“Yeah I agreed mom.”

Bobby and Amanda started to walk to the sky walk café. Then a big rumble started to happen while they were trying to get off the sky walk. The bottom of the sky walk glass started to break. Everyone started to panic. They are holding on the sky walk handle bars. Big rocks falling down to the ground, it was started to become a 10.6 Earthquake. While everyone on the sky walk trying to survive this terror on what is happening, the glass from the sky walk started to break a lot more.  Everyone started to scream in fear. Blood poured out of their legs while they were holding on the handle bars. Almost everyone on the sky walk was falling off into the Colorado River, as they all died by being impaled. The river turns into blood. Only two is still holding the handle bars are Bobby and Amanda. They are trying to be strong so they won’t die.

Bobby screamed out, “HELP!”

He saw the entire Grand Canyon cracking wide apart from this Earthquake that is happening now. He couldn’t believe on why this is happening. He thought they only have Earthquakes in California. As for Will, the Sky walk café started to collapse. The ceiling inside the cafe started to ripped apart and coming down on him and everyone.  His bones and guts were coming out of his body. Even children inside the sky walk café died from this horrible Earthquake. An officer saw the exit door and ran as fast as he can before the ceiling gets him. He is the only one that survive in there. After that he calls the news reporters and a rescue team. He told them what is going on here. The news reporters and the helicopter rescue team, hurry up as fast as they can get to here.

The Earthquake stopped at the time when they show up. They saw Bobby and Amanda still holding on the handle bars. The sky walk is about to fall down. They all hurry up and saved Bobby and Amanda from not dying.  Amanda told them, “Thank you for saving us.”

As for Bobby, he started to cry in tears. He couldn’t believe his dream by coming to the Grand Canyon became a one hell of a nightmare. All the cops from Arizona and the news reporters all saw the dead victims. The cops closed down the Colorado River, so that they can wash out all the blood in the river.

The News reporter said, “This has to be the most frighting events in history here in Arizona. There was an Earthquake that killed hundreds of tourist and people here at the Grand Canyon. Only one who survives is Amanda and Bobby. Two tourist from California and an Arizona Officer that made here alive. He is a real Hero from calling us. We shall remember this horrible day.”

Everyone in the world were in tears that this happen. Now everyday people still come to Grand Canyon to put flowers on the victims who died in this horrible Earthquake.  As for Amanda and Bobby, they both move to Florida. They won’t have to be another Earthquake again.

Good story, might be a little better when edited.

really cool kinda creepy though

We don't usually have earthquakes in Arizona. As a matter of fact, I've never felt one or heard of one. Geez, your grammar and wording is atrocious, and draws away from the story, but you could fix many things easily.

Very nice. I always wanted to visit the Grand Canyon. I love natural wonders. What a creepy write you have here. Well done.

Posted 10 Years Ago

Wow. Very nice. And creepy at the same time. I loved it. But never been to the grand canyon. Even though I live in Arizona. =)

I always wanted to see the GC, but after this terrifying story I think if I go I will stay off the glass walkway! And not sure if they have quakes there but I suppose they could. My friend says there are fault lines all over the world, although I think parts of Florida would sink into the ocean before cracking apart,lol.Great pics and song too!

Very terrifying! This seems just like something that could really happen. Awesome in its horror.

Posted 10 Years Ago

Wow, what a terrible thing to happen! Haha. I often have nightmares about natural disasters. Twisters, hurricanes, tidal waves and the like. This would be equally as scary. O.o
