16. Heated Conversation

The next day--Wednesday--Tyler called me at seven in the morning because he heard on the scanner that there was a fire in a building downtown.

“A fire?!”  That was my initial reaction.

“Yeah--there might be some people trapped inside.”

“Who do you think I am?  Superwoman?”

“You’re Spider-Girl!”

“As far as I know, spiders don’t go running towards flames.”

“But superheroes do.  Even not-so-super heroes do.  Jo, you’ve gotta save those people!”

I hesitated.  “I’m not fireproof.”

“Well, you’ve gotta do something!”

“I don’t know if I’m ready for something like that.”

“Jo, you can dodge bullets; you can stop a car with your bare hands; you’ve stopped two bank robberies, a mugging, and a drunk driver!”

“Okay, I get the point.  I’m getting dressed right now.”


I hung up my phone and put on my spandex suit for the third time in less than a week.  I realized something and called Tyler back.

“Um… where exactly is this fire?” I asked.  He gave me the address and I stopped breathing.  I couldn’t believe it.  “What was that again?”  He repeated the address and I shook my head.  “No,” I said.  “That can’t be right.”

“Why?  That’s what they said on the scanner.”

“Because that’s where my Grandma stays when she comes to visit.”  I paused.  “She just got here yesterday.”  Tyler didn’t say anything for a while.  “Tyler?”

“Jo, you’ve gotta go, now.  She could be one of the one’s trapped inside!”

It was starting to get lighter outside as I ran towards the city.  I was in a blind hurry--I didn’t even think about my car, or people seeing me in my full-body suit as I ran down the streets and past houses.  I don’t even remember how I got 20 feet in the air, or when I even got the taller city buildings.  Suddenly I was just flying through a broken fifth story window of a burning building.
