A Strange Ally's Case
There have been a series of arson cases in Wisconsin not all that far from where I used to live. The locations were all abandoned buildings, but the last one was used by some of the homeless, and disaster was barely averted. Thorough investigation revealed that the fires have burned savagely where there is no wiring or electronics, no fuel sources, and usually in the middle of the room. Reports from the authorities suggest that the arsonist is using a new, unknown accelerant to set the blazes. Mr. Peterson of the O.S.I.R. obviously believes that he has the answer to how the fires have been conducted. What I cannot figure out is why he has asked me to look into it--as you might remember I mentioned last week.
If you think this is creepy or dangerous, hold on. Mr. Peterson ran interference while myself, Myron, and Jenny investigated one of the crime scenes. Sarah and Jack watched over Mr. Peterson from a distance just to be safe. Inside Myron and Jenny did most of the work. Myron has dealt with gifted children who were the unwitting cause of R.S.P.K. occurrences--their runaway gifts started fires once or twice. He has also dealt with a pyrokinetic entity. Jenny on the other hand has not had to pit her gifts against a pyrokinetic yet. She read objects remaining at the current scene. She hasn't had much cause to read objects affected by others gifts yet, but she seems to get a sense of it that will be helpful in the future. (It's something we should practice.)
Our investigation didn't yield any evidence of who is responsible, but we did get a sense from everywhere we went when looked at all together that, as you might expect if you watch a lot of crime TV shows, there will be more fires and likely someone will get hurt if we don't step in and do something. I'll keep you up to date as we learn things and put a stop to this person's rampage.
