Alan took a step back and sighed. They had been in this apartment for three years. Obviously, there were some bad memories but there were good ones too. Great ones, even. Everywhere he looked there was something that he could trace back to a fond memory. Much of it was now on the floor and/or covered in gasoline but still, he’d be crazy to go through with this. Burn his own home down? He closed his eyes and sighed again. His mind went blank. Then he opened them, reached out with the roll of paper towels and touched it to the flame.
