Cal's got this thing about fire. It's nothing big at first, just lighting matches, watching matches burn, enjoying the calming effects of the flame... It helps him cope with stuff. Then he meets Abby, and things start to get out of control. She winds him up, playing with him until he thinks he might lose his santiy, and suddenly the matches just aren't enough anymore. So a plan hatches itself in Cal's mind - a plan so glorious, it could set the world alight. Nothing will ever touch him again.
