Hi Mum, it's Sammy (clone 59 - part 9)
They work out frequently and hang out a lot but have yet to stir a finger when it comes to an actual emergency. Oh no, emergencies are left for me.
The second was that the alarm went off while I was still working on it. I have got to work out a way to disable it if I want to maintain it. That alarm is ear splitting if you are anywhere near it.
I was interrupted by a faint cry. There was still someone trapped in the house.
"Help me. I can't move."
"Where are you?"
That wasn't much help for this house, there must have been like 4 or 5 balconies that I'd seen already. But I kept the man talking while I tried to follow his voice.
"Thanks, that fire was getting close. Did you get the gas off yet?"
"Umm, soon. It's next on my list. Do you know how many were in the house?"
"Just me and a couple of girls."
"Couple as in two or couple as in not too many?"
"Two, only two."
"They are out and safe. And," with a final heave the last board was off him, "you can go join them." He also ran straight out of the house.
"...tickle Donna." Donna is still very ticklish too.
Sunny is having good fun at home with Donna.
I finished putting out the fires around the first house and made contact with the station.
"Fire out, people safe, gas leak fixed. Time for me to head home."
"That is a negative. We have reports of another home damaged by the earthquake, you must respond immediately."
Damn, so much for going home nearly on time.
Better than the average workout, pulling all the debris off a person.
I told the station that I had finished this house and I was going home. They replied to me that a third house had been damaged in the quake. My assistance was again required.
I've never done this but I really just don't care about consequences now. Demotion or being fired, doesn't matter. It's a risk for me to try to keep going, I'm so exhausted by the two emergencies I've already handled.
I grabbed a bowl of something from the fridge. It was food, that's all I noticed as I wolfed it down. I was about to stagger to bed when I realised I heard the baby crying.
I staggered off to bed. Sunny later told me that there had been a phone call at 3 in the morning about me going home. Since this was the first time I'd ever left work before everything was settled, I was getting a few demerit points. It would slow down my next promotion, but not by a lot.
I could potentially argue about it at work. But it's not worth it at this point. They surely know that I'm by far the best in the department, they can't really fire me.
I love watching the two girls in my life together. I hope the new baby is a girl too. Mia is hoping for a boy. Well, one of us is definitely getting their wish.
He's depressed because he's really quite bad at it. He never remembers where the marker is so he jumps wrong every time.
While I was still home to watch Donna, Sunny went to the park to earn a few tips.
Sunny also found that the father is Sophie's boyfriend, Travis, who is also Sunny's big brother. The expectant parents seemed quite happy, both in the park and with each other.
One of these days, my coworker might also become my sister-in-law.
"The T rex dinosaur was definitely not known for climbing trees."
"Dad! They were also bigger than me. I get a better dinosaur eye view from up here."
"You have a point. Don't spend too long though, your sleepover guests should be arriving soon."
Charlie was having several of his school friends spend the night. I hope we don't regret letting him set it up.
