Monsters would never hide. They don't have to! Emma sensed that now that her world was falling apart. You'd know when they are present. They announce themselves loudly enough, leaving you no room to doubt their existence. Fear numbed her limbs as her father's steady hands scooped her into his strong arms. He pulled her tightly to his chest as he folded his large form through the open bedroom window, like a magic trick. With hands as rough as leather, he gripped tightly onto the frayed rope that disappeared into the floodwaters surrounding the house. "Just hang on to me, sweetheart. That is the only job you have. Just hold on to me tight and close your eyes." The flooding that breached the levees in 1927 along the Mississippi River due to torrential rainfall and excessive logging and dredging along its banks overwhelmed the channel and allowed the Mighty Mississippi River to spill out over seven states, creating devastation and the loss of many lives.
