Accidental Arson

Work Text:

The potion they were trying to make was complicated, and only Sesena really knew what they was doing (Even that was questionable, honestly, Kashima wondered more than once if she was just making it up as she went along.) It required several dry herbs and a lot of heat, so it was no surprise (To anyone but the three girls) when it caught fire.

In a moment of surprise and panic, Sesena grabbed the flaming glass and threw it out the nearby window.

The grass caught fire.

"Oops."

"Oops? You started a fire. And all you have to say. Is oops." Kashima was just as calm as ever. Clearly.

"My, this is quite the predicament. What do you suppose we should do?"

"Oh I don't know, maybe PUT OUT THE FIRE." Kashima paused and looked around. "Where's the hose?"

"The fire department is an option too, Lady Kashima." Sesena said, glancing over at the fire, which threatened to be larger than what they could handle on their own.

"... Right."

There was then a moment of silence.

"So." Kashima started. "Why isn't anyone calling the fire department."

"I simply assumed you would." Tina played idly with her hair, seemingly unbothered by the fire that was still very much there.

"No comment." Sesena opted to clean her glasses instead of answering.

"I don't have a phone." Kashima looked ready to kill Tina.

"What a pity."

"Are you gonna call someone or not?"

"Hmm, I suppose I'll have to say not."

"Why. Just- just why."

Tina smiled.

"Y'know what? I don't care. This isn't even my house, whatever." Kashima threw her hands up in a mix of defeat and bewilderment.

"Sesena, do you happen to have any marshmallows?" Tina turned away from the only sensible girl and looked at Sesena expectantly.

"Ah! Yes, right this way Madam Tina!" The two girls wandered over to the pantry and calmly looked through it. It was almost as if the fire hadn't moved towards the house and set off the alarms.

Almost.

"Ugh fine. But I'm only going so you don't get yourselves killed." Kashima was lying, of course. She knew that despite their reckless actions, the two girls were very capable.

And so, the three all walked through the front door and traveled behind the house.

After a few minutes they had 3 mostly burnt s'mores and all sat on the ground to eat them, only a few feet from the fire.

"Say, Sesena, shouldn't you be a tad worried about your house burning up? You aren't quite as well off as some of us."

"Yeah, why aren't you freaked out?" Kashima took a bite of her snack, cringing slightly at the ash.

"Didn't I tell you? This potion was made to start fires. I simply threw it outside by mistake." Sesena tilted her head in confusion.

"Why would you make that in your own home."

"I wanted to start a fire."

"In your house?"

"Mm-hmm."

Kashima sighed. She wasn't emotionally involved in this anymore.

When the fire department finally arrived (Thanks to a concerned neighbor and not any of the students) They stumbled upon 3 teenagers who were all much too casual.

This was going to be a long day.
