Long Dress And A Strong Wind
It was late morning when I woke and there was a furious gale blowing outside. I decided that today I was going to have some real fun, I would wear a long bridesmaids style gown. My heart was racing with the thought of all the skirts and petticoats blowing everywhere.
The dress its self was a thick deep red satin with separate layers of black satin petticoats to lift it slightly and I wore my pair of long furry boots just to keep my legs warm :p I stood by the door listening to the wind howl round our house looking at our weather gear which showed sustained winds of 50mph and gusts in excess of 60mph I waited for it to slow before opening the door, now the wind was howling louder and sounded more scary, I put my foot through the door and I was almost pulled along with the winds, my gown pulled hard and tugged as it whipped around the door. The wind dropped again and I braced myself and stepped through the open door, then my gown filled with air like a sail whipping around and I was blown across our porch, I grabbed a post and hauled myself to the door and leant into the wind hard to close it again, I was trying so hard not to be blown away against the wind filling my gown like a sail it was billowing in a rapid blur and making sharp slick noises as it blew over its self. I held tightly to the rail as a stepped off our porch and my gown started to make loud flapping noises as it was whipped around even more. I sat on the porch and the wind lifted my legs as it was going to blow them round with my dress too, it was blowing soo hard that I couldn’t pull my legs down to stand off the porch. I pulled my gown up to ease the wind on my legs so I could stand, now stood the wind was trying to blow my skirts up my back as I still held them, I could see the fur on my boots all flattened to one side and blowing around the other and the cords used to tie them on was whipping around wildly. I pulled my gown back over my legs and was almost blown over my the wind catching in my gown again, I was recovering from my near fall but the wind had blown my skirts up to my waist and when I stood they were pulling really hard and whipping around violently as I was no longer sheltered by the house. The wind blew and blew as it would never stop, my long scraggly mop of hair was now lashing my face and whipping around in front of me which felt like I was being pulled along by my hair, I managed to pull it back and I held It round my neck with both hands with the long ends still being whipped around. My gown was being blown all over; up, down, left, right, it was uncontrollable, pulling me around and buffeting in the strong gusts, I gathered up my dress as I feared it would be torn off! The wind howled and a strong gust swept me across the grass and my gown was thrust over my face filling my mouth with satin, I pushed against it but couldn’t pull it back so I turned my back to the wind and pulled and struggled to keep my balance and get my dress down but it was flapping so hard that it was blown further and further up my back, I screamed as a fierce gust seemed to almost lift me off the ground. After this I decided to return to shelter and pick a shorter less sail like dress, I made my way back to the house with my gown still tearing across my head, I stumbled along as I couldn’t use my arms to keep my balance as I couldn’t push my dress down against the wind yet. I fell against the house wall with the wind in my face and pushed against the dress as it billowed around my arms, I stood there as I fought my dress and calmed my heart rate after being almost blown away.
I climbed up the porch and held tightly to the posts as my hair and dress where whipping around wildly behind me then practically fell in through the door, I inspected my gown for damage and the hem was frayed slightly and the waist line looked slightly torn, I went to my room and wrapped up in my cloak and blankets while I decided what to wear next ;)
