I wake to a roar of flames. I am surrounded by them, I don't really know what's happening until finally I regain my senses. Pumped with panic, I leap out of my rough bed. The fire is everywhere, spreading throughout my home city of London. It is engulfed in sparks and suffocating smoke. There is no possible way to stop the merciless monster as it swallows my house and city with a burning cruel smile. I try to flee my singed sanctuary and then realise it's too late. I crumple to the ground. I close my eyes. I rest forever…
