1. The fire

Grace's pov

I woke up around midnight because I thought I smelled something burning. As soon as I opened my bedroom door big thick clouds of black smoke filled my room. I ran across the hall to my parents' room and was paralyzed by fear with what laid in front of me. I could barely hear my mom and dad screaming for help over the roar of the fire. The last thing I saw before I ran back into my room was my parents' lives being takes away by the horrid flames. As soon as I reached my room I grabbed my phone and made my way down two flights of stairs to my older brother's room in the basement. I opened his door to the same sight as before my brother was calling for help and again I couldn't do anything due to fear. Right before I ran outside I watched as the fire claimed the life of my only sibling. I ran outside and called 911 to report my house on fire. After that I ran over to my neighbors' house across the street. Their kids were on break from college so the son opened the door. I couldn't talk all I could do was cry until no more tears would come. My neighbor looked really confused but understood as soon as he heard the fire engines and saw the flames coming out of the windows of my house.
