The event that stands out in Tom’s memory happened one morning when Tom was only ten years old. He was at home with his elder sister Jane. Tom was doing his homework when he heard raised voices. At first he thought nothing of it since customers in the motorcycle shop directly below theirflat often became loud, but he soon realized this time it was different.
“Quick! Quick! Remove the motorcycles from the shop.” someone yelled.
Then a thick burning smell filled the air. When Tom opened the front door of their flat to investigate, a thick cloud of smoke greeted him. The motorcycle shop had caught fire and people were running and crying.
Jane, who had been playing the violin in her room, hurried to the living room. They rushed out of the door and along the corridor(走廊) through the smoke.
They were heading towards the stairway at the far end of the corridor when Jane stopped in her track. She turned around and headed back the way they came. Tom had no idea what she was doing, but he followed suit.
Jane had suddenly remembered the lady in her 70s who lived next door to them, who they called Makcik, Malay for auntie. Jane began banging on Makcik’s door, but got no answer. As the smoke thickened around them, Tom could see many of their neighbors—some still in their pyjamas—running for safety. The thought of fear crossed his mind.
“She would have run for safety like everyone else!” Tom cried. However, Jane refused to give up. “I know Makcik’s still inside.” She said she was familiar with Makcik’s daily routine and was certain she would still be sleeping. She pounded the door. “Go downstairs. Go now! Go!”

Paragraph 1: Tom noticed the flame was reaching up. It sounded like a wild animal was roaring at them. Within seconds the corridor was full of chokingsmoke. It stung their eyes and left them gasping for breath. At this point,Tom began to panic, for he could barely make out his sister through the smoke. Coughing and rubbing his eyes, he crouched down beside her, not knowing what to do. Totally overwhelmed by fear, he was close to tears. But Jane kept banging on the door and shouted, “Quick! Open the door! The flat is on fire...”
Paragraph 2: Luckily, some neighbors passing by stopped and offered help. Together they pounded at the door with their fists. After trying in vain to wake up the old lady, they managed to break it down. In an instant, Jane and Tom rushed in, followed by their neighbors, only to find Makcik lying unconscious in bed. In record time, they carried her out, headed towards the stairway, and then dashed downstairs. What a narrow escape! When the fire fighters come to their rescue, all of them breathed a sigh of relief. What made Tom proud was that a few days later, his elder sister was given an award for her bravery and quick action.
