Asleep, in my pants, in the firehouse. Drool, drool, drool. WEE-HOO! WEE-HOO! WEE-HOO! ALARM. Fire. Yes... Bound out of bed. slide down pole. Screech. "Stay Alive, helpless ones. We're coming". Slide on uniform. Hop on fire engine. Race to fire, through busy city streets. Weeeee. Love the wind through hair. Heart beats fast. SCREAM up to burning house. Oh fire HOT. Burn sky black. "Get out of the way, ladies and gentlemen, I'm a fire fighter. You do not realize the danger. Out of the way." Flames lick the door and window frames. Lap lap lap.
Hose down the front door. "Get in." Bust through door into fire hotter than sin. Ooooooooo HOT. Where to go... Can't see anything. Rub Visor. "IS THERE ANYONE HERE TO BE SAVED?" Only sound, crackle of burning timber. Oh my God, did I just hear that? "Wah wah wah!" Helpless baby alert. Quick, run, up stairs... stairs destroyed. "Waaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhh." Baby hanging from broken stair edge. "Hold onto the edge baby, we're here". "Wahhhhh... boo boo." Flames creep around... OH NO!.. BABY HANGING FROM ONE HAND. FUCKIN' RRRUUUUNNNN OUT. "Is there anyone missing a baby?" Argh.... No time. Grab fire ladder. "DON'T YOU LET GO BABY, I'M COMING." Sprint into house, breathing difficult, helmet off. "WAH! BOO! WAH!" Baby holding on by one finger. "Boooooo boooooo". Throw ladder across gap, sweating. Grab for baby. Baby slips into deep void, screams and dies a really horrible death.
