Jeremiah FF - english // A Life

Characters: Mister Smith, Kurdy
Rating: PG
Words: 324

revised story: January 2016

The roof of the house was already gone up in flames, it couldn't be saved anymore. But they had been able to rescue the two children who had been blocked up in their room. This was all that counted.

Suddenly Smith groaned. "Oh no!"

Before Kurdy could react, he jumped up. "Wait here!" he yelled, then ran back into the still burning ruins. Kurdy frowned alarmed. What did they overlook? For a moment, he thought about it to follow Smith, but finally, his words held back him. Wait here! It was better to listen to him, that was something he had learned during the last weeks.

Minutes passed. Flames were coming out of the front windows. The heat became more and more intolerable. Kurdy cursed loud, what if Smith had been wrong this time? What was going in the house?

Finally, he couldn't endure the endless wait for longer. He ran to the back door of the house and was greeted by dense smoke.  He started to cough instantly, no chance to get inside anymore.

"Smith," he yelled.
"Fuck, Smith, where are you?!"
Instead of an answer, someone grabbed for his arm and pulled him away from the house last minute. With a loud roar, it imploded.

"I've told you to wait here, didn’t I?!"

Kurdy stared at Smith flabbergasted. His face was black from soot, the hair burnt. Blood was dropping out of a gash at his left arm. And in this arm lay - a dog! Still a puppy, shaking with fear he cuddled up to Smith, who talked to him whispering.

"Holy shit. Are you fucking mad, Smith," Kurdy hissed after the shock started to ebb away.
"You risk your life for a stupid dog?!"

"It's not just a dog," he replied softly and put the puppy on the ground. He watched the little dog jumping to the both saved children who greeted him with loud laughing.
"It' s a life!"

Dear Smith realizes that all life is precious.

Yes it is - especially in such a bad time it´s important to respect all life.

Oh yes, Kurdy is such a nice guy and he often worries about Smith!

Oh, I just love this caring, compassionate Smith, and how Kurdy went to rescue him. ♥

Thank you - I like both too!

This is wonderful. Smith values the life of the puppy and Kurdy values Smith.

Thank you!
It was fun to write this!

I understand Kurdy's frustration with Smith, but it was all worth it! Thank you :D

Thank YOU ;)
I think, Kurdy simply is worried about Smith. If he would knew about the dog (and Smith was not there), I think he would try to save the puppy, too! But he would never admit this to Smith!

Btw: I like your Icon!

This is sooo beautiful, sweetie. Very touching, it simply made my cry.
Great work, my dear. Thank you!

Oh thank you - it´s nice you like it! But don´t cry too much (maybe there are other stories which are a little more sadly ;) )

This was great! I like stories that put Smith in danger. And the ending was so nice, Smith's words so important.

I like such stories, too. It seems, Smith gets so often in danger, while he try to help others. He thinks of himself only seldom. Good to know that there are others like Kurdy ...

I love this! Not only does this show how Smith values life, but it also shows how Kurdy values Smith. Wonderful story.

Thank you. I'm glad you like it!
