Neither of the Madison's smoked. But
today was the day he x-husband was
supposed to come by Mrs. Madison's
house to fix a few thin..gs in the kitchen.
While Mr. Madison was working away
Mrs. Madison went out side to work on
the garden and bumped into Alice a
friend from next door. Alice pretended
that she didn't smoke but everybody
new she did from time to time. Alice
casually threw down her cigarette on
Redwood porch floor and they went
back inside to see the progress being
made by Mr. Madison. Alice offered
everyone some tea and they agreed.
The baby girl Mayra was upstairs
sleeping. Soon while Alice, Mrs. Madison
and Mr Madison were sipping tea Alice
remarked that she smelled smoke. Mrs
Madison agreed and they all went
out back to find the porch on fire.
Quickly Mr. Madison told the girls to call
the fire department and now could hear
the baby crying. Mrs. Madison ran upstairs
to get the baby. Alice ran quickly home.
