"Mum? MUM?!" I yelled through the smoke. Then I doubled up coughing.

I couldn't quite believe the house was on fire.

I pressed my cheek to the floor, breathing what little clean air there was left. Why was the house burning?

"Rachee!" I heard, yelled by a voice that was dulled by smoke.

Oh no.


My younger sister wouldn't know what was going on.

"I'm coming, May!" I shouted. Then I took a big breath, held it, got up and ran.

I couldn't see through the choking dark grey fog, so I went by touch.
