I smell smoke

Within moments, more and more of the party guests were smelling smoke.  Rai Sing went out on the patio to look.

“Fire!” he shouted, “The grill’s on fire!”

Rai and Leigh

As Krystal called 911, Rai Sing stood, staring at the blazing grill.  Former babysitter Leigh Withers stood there, also staring.  Ian ran out to the patio to see exactly what was going on.

Krystal runs to the patio

Krystal was told that the Fire Department was on the way.  She also ran out to patio just as the flames leapt higher.  Rai and Leigh raised their arms to try and ward off the growing blaze.

Another former babysitter comes outside

Another former babysitter, whose name escaped Krystal and Ian in the excitement, also rushed out to see what was going on.  The fire seemed to become the big entertainment draw of the evening.

In the distance, the sound of a fire siren could be heard.

Arrival of the fire truck

Within seconds, the fire truck pulled up to the Starr’s house.

Flare Up

More and more party guests and family members were gathering on the patio.  Another flare up caused several to shriek and recoil from the flames as they shot up.

As Krystal cringed, she worried.  Could the flames shoot over to the house and burn it to the ground?  Would she and Ian lose their home?  Would the fire fighter arrive in time to prevent the worst from happening?

Dash for the Door

As if in answer to her unspoken question, the fire fighter made his dash for the door….

I’ve seen lots of objects become piles of ashes but never the walls, I think their safe from becoming homeless. Though I do think those kids are standing too close to the flames….I’m surprised thats not where the worry was.

We’ll see…. 😉

I’m a bit under the weather tonight, so I am going to finish this portion of the story line this weekend. Sorry to leave you on a cliffhanger for more than a day.

cliff hangers can be fun, they keep people NEEDING to come back for more, they also seem to bring some excitement to the story even if the story line may not be that exciting (though a fire probably would not be consider dull)

Especially if a person has almost accidentally exploded their house once. They can relate more to the characters. 😀
