    Neighbor

    My neighbor's house burned down a lot when we were kids. I actually saw the lightening strike once when I was about 6. I never figured out what was wrong with the house, but it would periodically get stuck with lightening, and I would just be so glad it wasn't my house. Maybe...

    Chair

    In the burning country I came into a village that was deserted by all. Mines and booby traps were shattered allover and only now some inhabitants started to come back home.  I made a stroll with one of them.  His mood was sad and dark.  We went to a house. The door was open...
