It's been a quiet couple of days, it's been really peaceful. But then something happened. Justin was watching TV, flicking channel through channel in an effort to watch something. I was next to him, playing my DS, being a lazy husk that I was.
He stops on a news station, where there was a burning building. He stares, I don't really notice. Fire isn't that uncommon. Over my gaming, I do hear that the fire department did do everything in their power to stop the fire, but they were too late. The occupants, man and woman, husband and wife, died before they could be rescued.
I look over at Justin wondering why he found this so interesting. He didn't look stunned, or shocked, or even surprised. He just said something that made my heart drop.
"That's my mom and dad's house."
I don't think I've heard the house that silent in forever.
