Flash Fiction: Apartment Complex

I stood at the entrance gate of the apartment complex.

It was huge. I counted at least a hundred identical apartments. Gareth whistled and turned to me.

“It is a fireman’s nightmare.”

I smiled.

“And an arsonist’s dream.”

Gareth smiled back.

“Okay, i’m in. You get the kerosene…”
