"Story of the Fire in our Place."
We live in a tower apartment building on the top floor overviewing the city lights.
The other week, I was composing a new poem in the computer room next to our dear furry friends, the cats. I had the PC screen, the speakers turned on and tuned to one of my favourite Radio Stations with Gospel music. Everything seemed peacefully until I smelt something burning.
I rushed to the living room and noticed a heavy cloud engulfing all corners. Then, I dashed off to the kitchen and shuddered in panic when I saw the dazzle of fire coming out of the electrical power source on the wall. I managed to open all windows, doors and called out for help.
I said, "Fire!! Help, please!!"
Some good neighbors came out from their dwellings and helped us out. They called the Superintendant of the building, the Police and Fire Department. Some of them arrived all at once extinguishing the savage fire. They asked me questions about the event, and thanked me for being a good neighbor and a brave woman to have stayed with my animals at all times protecting them. They said that some folks would have only cared for themselves and left out the place on fire trying to save their personal lives. I said, "It would be selfish not to help your loved ones or others in need. If you love somebody, you should care for your beloved ones. I will never leave my loved ones behind. That is for sure."
Thanks God nothing bad happened to us, and we continued with our daily lives in peace.
Praise the Lord!!
