My step-sister and I were home alone,sitting on the couch at her nan's
house,watching America's Best Dance Crew(YEE SUP3R CR3W!),just another normal day.
I was hungry,so I randomly said "Let's bake cookies!" and she agreed to
Now,I'm not much of a baker,but Karissa(step-sister) claims she is.We found all the
ingredients and we found one tray.You know me,a big eater...of course we wanted two
batches,but we only had one tray.Karissa got impatient,so she decided to use a
plastic placemat.I thought it was a bad idea,but she said that her nan used them
before,and it worked.I didn't know anything about ovens,so we put our cookies on a
placemat,and put them in the oven.
I went back in the living room,to watch ABDC,cause it was the finale."In The Ayer"
came on,and that is mine and Karissa's jam,so I started singing,and all of a sudden I
heard a shriek.
"COURTNEY!OH MY GOD,THE STOVE'S ON FIRE!"
At first I thought she was kidding around,but then she was screaming her lungs
out,and I started to smell smoke,so I jumped.She was screaming,and it took me a while
to react.I froze,watching her throw glasses of water into the stove.
"WHAT DO WE DO,COURTNEY!?!?" she was crying...hard.
"Call Rex!" Rex is Karissa's uncle,and he lives next door to her nan.The fire alarm
"Grab the dogs!" she took the phone outside,where the air was breathable.
I grabbed one of the dogs,but before I could leave....I thought of my iPod,my
laptop,and my nintendo DS.LMFAOLMFAOLMFAO.Seriously,I cared more about that than my
own life.I couldn't take my laptop,but I grabbed my iPod and DS,along with one of the
dogs.Karissa had the other dog.I ran into the kitchen,seeing if the fire was gone.It
was,but the STOVE WAS STILL ON.We are SO smart. 8D I didn't know how to turn off the
stove,so I flicked around with the buttons until the light turned off. I ran
outside,and Rex was already up to the house,screaming at both of us.
"WHY THE FUCK WERE YOU BAKING COOKIES,THAT'S FUCKING STUPID." and he ran inside.He
came out a few minutes later with a burnt placemat.He basically threw it at me,and
yelled "YOU DON'T FUCKING USE THAT TO BAKE."
"But Karissa said.." He was already gone.Turns out he TOLD MY MOM I BLAMED IT ALL ON
He came back out later and was yelling at me and Karissa,and Karissa kept
saying."Okay." and rolling her eyes at him.Then he was like "Is it okay when the
house burns down!?!Is it really!!??!" Finally,after five minutes of yelling his
brains out,he stalked off,like a child.
My mom and Kar's dad came home later on,and they started flipping out too.They acted
as if the house was more important than our lives.Like,I wasn't breathing
properly.Neither was Karissa.I also had a splitting headache from the smoke.But they
didn't seem to care too much.As long as the house was okay,they were happy.
Anyway,everything's okay now,I'm fine,Karissa's fine,the beloved house is fine(Thank
God,wouldn't want the very important house to burn down.)But yeah,nobody needs to
worry.Everything's okay now.It was just a scary experience.We all have em'.Thought
I'd share mine. xD
