Friday night is family game night at the Turners' house. Each week, a different person in the family chooses the game. This week, it was Cody's turn to choose. He chose his favorite board game, as always.
It was thundering outside, but no one minded. They were having fun playing their game. About halfway through, just as Cody was about to make a big move, everything stopped. The lights went out!
Everyone was quiet for a few moments, then everyone started talking at once. Mom felt her way to a drawer and got some candles. Dad found some matches.
Cody made his big move, by candlelight, and went on to win the game. Everybody thought this made the game even more fun. In fact, they plan to play by candlelight next week, too!
drawer: a storage compartment without a lid which slides out of a table, cupboard, etc.
candle: a stick of wax that is burned for light.
