Don't Look Back

By Mary Vee

Lot, his family, and the two visitors had a rough night. No one could sleep with all the noise going on in the city of Sodom.

Just before the sun rose the two visitors, who were angels, walked to the widow. "Lot, you and your family need to leave. Don't take time to pack anything."

Lot brushed his beard and looked at his wife. He new she loved all the fancy stores. Sure the people did bad things, OK they did really bad things. But his wife really loved living in the same neighborhood with the famous people.

The angels peeked out the window and saw the sun starting to rise. "Now, Lot. Take your wife and your two daughters and get out of here. Hurry or you will be killed!"

Lot's heart beat faster. He looked at the angels who were pacing and then at his wife who nodded her head and said, "No, I won't leave."

The angels looked at each other. "We can't wait another second." They grabbed Lot, his wife, and two daughters and led them safely out of the city. As they passed the city wall the angels let go of them. "Now get out of here Lot. Run, all of you, as fast as you can. DON'T LOOK BACK. Don't stop. Keep running until you get to the mountains or you will die in the firestorm."
