Through the Flames

I could barely see him through the smoke, a wispy silhouette, dancing and swaying to the rhythmless music of the crackling bonfire. His erratic movements transported me to some other place, a far-off, magical land. He was ethereal, mesmerizing, screaming…

Screaming!?

“DON’T JUST STAND THERE! MY PANTS ARE ON FIRE!!”

“Suspicions of arson?” inquired the parson, obsequious, timid, subdued.

“Indeed,” replied Earl, “though, no, not the girl… The arsonist, sir; it was you!”
