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.
