Rei had snapped to attention, even before Jed registered the acrid smell of smoke and the girl coughing and wailing on the front lawn. He and Kunzite had stopped, both fumbling for phones, but Rei sprinted away from them, and through the front door, disappearing into the dark smoke.

"Shit!" Jed swore, dropping his phone and trying to go follow after her into the house.

Ken tackled him to the ground, sitting on his thrashing legs while trying to work his phone with one hand. Jed's voice was tight with panic. "Ken, we have to go after her - she just ran into a fucking burning building-"

"And do what? What would you do, Jed?" Ken muttered, swearing slightly under his breath as he kept punching the wrong numbers.

"I - shit! I don’t know!" Jed replied, pulling at his hair slightly, before hitting Ken in the chest. "Do something! Make some ice," he barked.

"Out of what? I need water," he snapped, ending the phone call. Mamoru wasn’t answering his cell.

Two guys stumbled out the front door, coughing but otherwise unharmed. Ken got up off Jed’s legs, helping the two of them away from the building and over to the crying girl. For a moment, the flames disappeared, although the smoke continued. The heat retreated, as if a vacuum had sucked it up.

Jed looked toward the door, as if considering running in after Rei, when two more exited the burning house. He had just helped pull them clear from the door when, with a whoosh, the flames shot high in the sky again, the building crackling and groaning as if it was about to give way.

"Fuck," Jed muttered, pulling the girls even further back. He could hear sirens in the distance. When he looked back at the front door, the entire front hallway was up in flames. Just before the second floor collapsed, Rei came stumbling out the front door, eyes wide. She was covered in soot and singed bits which had probably been her clothes, although there wasn’t a mark on her. Jed stood, openmouthed.

Ken pulled off his coat, and Jed shook his head to clear it. Rei swayed and half-collapsed as Jed threw out his arms to catch her, shivering in the cold air. "Get me out of here before the police come," she said, voice husky from the smoke.
