Instead, a great east wind raged forth and tore against the peanut tree. The waters of the brook turned dark and violent.

The sky overflowed with water ... whipping down in torrents of stinging rain. Many of the little peanut’s bigger brothers and sisters were ripped from the peanut tree by the force of the storm and were thrown ... smashing to the earth far below.    

The little peanut clung to the tree with all the effort that he could but the storm was powerful and strong.




He too was hurled towards the ground far below !
