and splashed a small amount of lighter fluid over the black jewels.
Taking a long match from the case, she struck it on the side of the box,

Satisfied with the progress, she sat back and watched as the flames grew,
embers escaping, floating up, only disappear in the atmosphere.

With a smile, she picked up the phone and dialed. She hoped they'd bring the big hoses.
