As I read this scenario repeatedly, I remembered some other experiences that had happened
in my life a long time ago when I was still a small child. Although this was nothing related to a
fire incidence, other traumatic experiences were making me feel that my life was coming to an
end. The scenario read here gives a clear picture and brings those vivid thoughts making me dumb

not natural or friendly to anyone, by dying when you are still young and in a tragedy can be
devastating to those who are left behind.
If one time I wake up in a room filled with smoke, the first thing that will run into my
mind is to think of the door first. I would rush towards it and try to open or break it using something,
and if this would not work, then I would try to break the window and try to leave the room. The
worry and panic I would be having at this time, I'm sure would have caused me all my energy, and

especially because there would be a little amount of air in the room. Even if everything failed, I
would still keep trying until I got nothing more to do to save my life. And also though I would like
to give up, I would keep on thinking about m...
