As we made our way off campus, we ran into several packs of zombies and had to fight them off. I expected this but I do not think Steven did so he was mortified after we fought off the last pack. “I want to go home, I need my mommy, and you are not my mommy” Steven sniffled. I assured him that I was doing my best to get him home and that he would be with his mom in no time. We kept moving through down town and I had heard something in the distance. It sounded like a car, a running car that was driving right towards us. I started running towards the sound and saw the car parked in front of a gas station. I knew what I had to do so I jumped in the driver’s seat and told Steven to hop in and drove off towards the woods.

    Once the oil was poured in, flames and sparks danced in the night sky, like a vortex of fire. I could hear wind whistling, the leaves rustling, flames flickering everywhere, and then, to myself, quietly humming a bittersweet rhythm. I’d always asked myself this question, if I was one of the elements of air, ground, fire, or water, which one will suit me the most. Everyone would tell me that my personality was like fire, burning and hot-headed, and I had to say, I agree. I’m not afraid of fire. I…
