I watched as the fire leaped, destroying everything in its path. My mother screamed. my brother tried to comfort her and I just stood there frozen as I watched our home once again burn. I had an over powering desire to join the flame, dance in its beauty, run among its ashes. 
I took a step closer it the blaze but pulled back at the last minute, I could see the fire fighters finally arrive trying to douse the flame with water. I was then fascinated with the way the water seemed to glisten and snap as it hit the fire. I wanted to join it to drown away my sorrows in its smooth feeling.
A tall man dressed in a fire mans outfit pulled me back further from the flame. My mother’s sobbing and brother’s angry words were what I heard.
“When well they leave us alone.” He growled fully knowing the answer was never. They would never leave us
