5:15 AM this morning of October 30th, a phone call woke everyone up. Human sleepily reached for the phone which said "Central Station" on it, and showed an 800 number. She rolled over thinking "stupid telemarketers" and attempted to drift off again, when she heard Human IIs phone go off. Its very noticeable, for the ring is the entrance to Metallicas "Enter Sandman". Suddenly out of the silence of night, a lone siren sounds. Human raises her head to listen. Soon another comes, then another.
5:30 AM, Human II gets a call from the gas station, that he and The Human work at. He tries to call them back, but no one answers. He gets up, says hes gonna drive by and see whats going on. Human gets up too, waking me up, and tells him shes going too. He refuses to let her and she stalks back to her room, disheartened.
5:50 AM, Human II calls Human and The Warden (formerly known as Granny) with an update. The station was on FIRE! There was 6 fire trucks, and guys on the roof hacking holes, and flames shooting out the top, and smoke everywhere! Human was stunned! This place, that she had been going up to for the past 12 years, that she had worked at for the past three, was in flame?
Human got up immeadietly, and phoned her friend, who works there too. Had that place not have been there, they would've never met, and now this place was burning to the ground! After she got off the phone with him, she called her mom. Not thinkin her mom believed her at first, but she became as gossip-hungry as anyone else, and as that goes, Human was - and still is - starving!
Of course, when Human was out making her calls, I escaped the room and wound up in the Wardens. Warden doesnt like me in her room so started complaining. Of course, I could sense the tension, and darted between Humans legs into the living room, around into the dining room then to the back of the house, while she chased me. We did that about four times. Human was glad I was there to lighten the mood, but I was just mad at her for getting up. I was asleep between her legs.
7:30 AM Human II finally came back (reeking of smoke, mind you) and they drove past the station. Everything was stained in smoke, and there was a gaping hole in the peaked roof. Human II says everything is ruined and will have to be wrote off. They'll all have to either be transfered to other stores, or find new jobs while it gets fixed.
Cause of the fire is uncertain, as of now. Very possible that it was electrical, but personally Human thinks the manager was smoking in the office again. Shes a smart one.
No one was injured, just shocked and stinky.
Human dunno what shes gonna do for a job now.
Purrs & Pounces,
