I woke up to muffled screams, and a burning heat. I crawled out of my sleeping bag and pulled on some shorts and a t-shirt, then I looked around. The cabin was empty, except for me in the bunk bed that was at the far end of the cabin. I could smell smoke wafting up from downstairs. It was then that I realized there was a fire. I jumped off the top of the bed, ignoring the ladder, and ran to the window, I could see all of the people looking up at the flames. A little girl pointed and said that she saw me in here, but the adult beside her said that they had cleared the building.
I looked around for an escape, but the only one that there was, was the stairs that led to the inferno. The windows were too high above the ground to jump from, and I couldn't climb the tree's beside them. That's when I saw the other girl in the tree. She looked to be about fourteen, just a year younger than I, and was already at the branches closest to me. I opened the window, and stuck a foot out. The flames had already gotten up the stairs and were licking at my calves. The girl reached in and grabbed me around the waist, pulling me out into the frosty air. It felt so wonderful on my burnt legs. I could see a medical team shouting at each other, and getting their medicines ready for me. I could see reporters flashing their cameras at us.
I didn't know the girls name, but she had beautiful dark hair that was blowing in the wind as she climbed down with me. Her green eyes looked startled as she slipped on a branch under my weight. I felt bad for her because I couldn't help her get us down, after she had just saved my life. Her small mouth asked me if I was okay, after I groaned in pain. I nodded at her. She smiled at me, trying to make me feel better. It was a sad smile. I didn't know how she was carrying me, she seemed to thin to be strong enough.
At last we reached the ground, and before I could thank her we were pulled away from each other. The reporters surrounded her, and her smile turned into a look of fear. Doctors pulled me onto a stretcher and put me in an ambulance as I watched her stutter over what to say. The doors closed as I waved at her, she waved back.
I never saw her again, I never learned her name, and she became my unknown hero.
