THE ARCHIVES: Chapter 355

Mirage

It could have been only a rumor.
If I had learned anything that year,
it was that the majority
of what people talk about
is totally insignificant
and may not even be true.
At this point, I didn’t care.
I tumbled down the hill,
shoved through the crowds,
and moved closer to the smell
of smoke
coming from
the storage shed.
Flames shot from the back.
The air around it shimmered
with heat like a mirage.
Where is the fire truck?
“Get away from there!”
someone screamed at me.
I ignored them.
I thought I heard someone
calling—screaming
from inside the shed.
