Note: This story is written by a guest, my son Reuben, who is 9.
One day Reuben was walking with his sword strapped to his belt. All of a sudden he smelled smoke and he heard a cry for help. He turned around and he saw a building on fire and a woman crying for help with her baby up in a high window.
He tried to open the door but it was locked. He hacked it down with his sword. When he got inside he saw a robber with jewels in one hand and matches in the other. He was lighting stuff on fire with his matches.
Reuben drew his sword. Unfortunately he had a sword too so they had a duel. Reuben won the duel by slashing his legs. Now he had to go save the woman and her baby.
He hurried upstairs and he saw the woman and her baby trapped in a ring of fire. He whipped the fire with his jacket which created a part where they could get out.
"Come with me," said Reuben and the woman and the baby hurried out of the house with Reuben.
Reuben grabbed a garden hose and put out the fire. Then he called the police and they took the robber. He was the hero of the day!
That is the story of the big fire.
