The House is Burning (Writing Challenge Day 17)
A burning house.
An impatient man in a suit walks out of it.
Sirens are heard as twenty-seven firemen rush in from stage left to douse the impatient man with imaginary water before exiting at stage right.
–Forty-three, forty-four, yes, forty-five. Good. Quota reached.
He exits stage left.
The house stops burning.
A falling house.
