The tempestuous wind tossed the airborne kite wildly about. Darting furiously this way and that, it soon crashed to the ground, causing tempestuous, violent cries from the small child holding the end of its string. In the child’s tantrum, he raced to the fallen kite and tempestuously ripped it apart, showing little emotional control. His parents decided that kite flying was something they would avoid in the future, especially during a seasonal tempest or storm.
