A loud beeping suddenly started. I woke up with a start and threw off my covers and ran into the kitchen. I scanned the area to see a small fire in a pan on the oven. I sighed, grabbing the nearby fire extinguisher and put out the fire. I then went to look at what was in the pan. After rubbing my eyes a couple of times, I couldn't figure out what it was and shook my head.
A bang and a cry of surprise made me jump again. I ran over to the back door and sighed again. My twin brother, Zephyr, was working on his project for the Thunder Lake City Council.

"No, I think I'll be good. You should get up there and I'll be right there," I replied. He nodded and bounded up the stairs.
