Who: Sydni and Duncan
What: Damsels need rescuing
Where: Sydni's apartment
Since Mikhail had left, Sydni had been working on his safe return. Magickally, anyway. She had created a spell that was designed to be worked a little each night until Mikhail returned. She knew it would bring him home to her safely. Each night, she burned a light blue candle for his safe return, letting it burn to all as she slept. She took the proper precautions, using a fire safe stand, etc., but the best laid plans of mice and men...
Sydni awoke because Molly was crying and digging at her. The pup knew better than that. In her sleep induced stupor, the brunette wondered what was burning, until she realized, she smelled smoke. Bolting upright, she began coughing, even as Molly's cries were interrupted by coughs. Crouching down, the lycan grabbed the dog by the collar and practically dragged her by the Temple Room, the source of the fire. Molly did not want to go that way, but a forceful yank dragged the dog past the fire and they were both headed out the door. Why hadn't the fire alarms... Damn. They kept going off when Sydni baked. She mustn't have turned them back on last time.
Out in the hall, Sydni quickly checked on Molly and was about to go warn someone, when she remembered Henry. The little fish all alone in the Temple Room, about to become boiled fish. The scientist considered only a moment before groaning and running back into the apartment, slamming the door behind her. The thought of that little fish left to its own end made her stomach turn. She had to at least try. And the fire wasn't that bad...
At least, it hadn't been 10 seconds ago. But now it had caught the curtains and various other cloth adornments, and was spreading wildly. Sydni spotted her little fish, still swimming, and dashed over to it, catching it up, and turning to leave, when a heap of flaming wall hanging crumpled in front of her. Fuck.
In the hall, Molly was barking like mad, and had even taken to hurling herself at the door in an effort to get to her human. Anyone with any sense would know the dog needed assistance.
