Today, Garric had decided he wanted to just walk around the district. Hanging out with his friends didn't seem particularly appealing, mostly because he'd just realized he kind of had a crush on one who was very straight and had a girlfriend, so he had decided he needed some distance just so he wouldn't do something stupid and cause a rift.
Which is why he was now walking through a mostly deserted part of the district. Of course there were some families here and there, but there were a few abandoned houses where it would be easy to hole up and just daydream, think, or just doodle a bit.
But as he was deciding whether he wanted the blue or white house as his hide out, he heard a bang nearby. Startled, he looked around, only to see a girl running out of one of the houses with her hair on fire. She managed to put it out before he arrived, but it was still smoking. He scrunched his nose at the smell.
"Hey, are you okay?" he queried, concerned. "What happened? I thought I heard a explosion."
