On one of these occasions, St. Scholastica asked St. Benedict to remain overnight but he did not want to remain away from his monastery. She began to pray and a tremendous storm arose. St. Benedict was forced to stay overnight with her. He returned home the next day. St. Scholastica died later that week.
