As I make my way into the kitchen, I smell something off, like someone lit a cigarette in the house, moments before the smoke alarm at the front of the house starts going off shrilly. It’s so loud I cover my ears, dropping to the floor and crawling my way to the back door. All I can think of is making it to the car so I can get away from here.
I push open the door in time to feel a huge explosion at my back. Everything is suddenly so hot I can't withstand it, pain searing across my body.
