HOLLY ‘S FIRE PIECE
“Wake up, wake up!”
The first thing I see is my Mother… her eyes full of terror, glaring out the window with her hands covering her mouth in an elliptical shape.
“I wonder what’s going on?” I thought.
I stumbled out of bed to comfort my Mum to see why she was so startled, but then my senses kicked in. I could smell, hear, and see what was happening.
The stench of smoke, the crackling of the fire and the inferno of flames that kept growing.
That’s when I realized that our neighbour’s house had been engulfed in a blaze.
