I was taking a bus
on my way home, and I saw outside a storefront catching fire
. It's a clothing store, the kind of store your folks would go to embarrass
you in the school shopping days. I ran out of the bus, and I took out my phone. to call 911
. It's useless -- people were calling 911 and I can hear it through the phone.
In all of this chaos, I've forgotten one thing: I've forgotten to take my bags! I ran for the bus, and it's past three or four blocks away from where I was. Still, I ran out until it turned right between two blocks filled with homes. The bus vanished, but a van filled with little children stopped in its place. I looked through the window of the van, and I saw my bag. I opened the side door, grabbed my bag in front of all these fire-year-olds, and I walked off.
