Eternal Curse: Giovanni’s Angel chapter 9
He stood upright, floating in the center of his room next to his bed, looking around at the burning sheets and rugs with smoke rising up from them.
Giovanni cried into the claws he now called hands. He could hear Abraham waking from his sleep and rushing to get by his side. Giovanni couldn’t bear to relive this nightmare by telling it to his devoted friend, so he decided he had to get away. He spun around rapidly and then turned to open the window. Then he flew out, pulling most of the fire out along with him.
Abraham rolled into the empty room still filled with intense heat. He extended and pulled his fire extinguisher in the general direction of Giovanni’s bed and slowly moved closer. Once he realized that all was safe, he rushed up to the window Giovanni had left slightly opened, but he was too late.
