New York Socialite Perishes in Tragic Fire

--A fictional news item Written May 12th, 2010 by Adela based on events in The Eternal Ones by Kristen Miller
|Early this morning at the restored historic house in the Mews, New York Socialite and notorious Playboy, Ian Morrow, was crushed by the burning roof that came down moments before he was about to jump from the second story window to safety. The only other people in the house at the time were Iain and a mysterious, dark-haired girl, suspected of being the girl seen with Morrow in pictures on an Italian blog a week before this event, and a maid, who ran out of the house the minute she smelled smoke, was unharmed. Our sources tell us that the girl, a Tennessee native named Haven Snively, was seen jumping from the window into the arms of a young man named Beau in front of the deceased celebrity. She escaped with a broken leg and other minor injuries, and was rushed to the nearest hospital. She is now in stable condition.
Adam Rosier, a member of the Ouroborous Society, was the only person who witnessed the entire thing from the ground. Mr. Morrow was also a member of this elite society, one that specializes in reincarnation and past lives, and Mr. Rosier says that he knew Iain well.
“It’s said to see him go so tragically. He was so young, so talented, and had so much potential.” Mr. Rosier said. When asked about details of the accident, he replied, “ Ms. Snively jumped, and Beau, whom I suppose is a long-time friend from back home, caught her. Iain was stepping out onto the sill when the roof caved in and broke the floorboards beneath his feet. He fell, and there was no chance that he survived a fall like that if he was covered in all of that smoldering rubble. Absolutely tragic.” No body has been found, but if it happened like Mr. Rosier described it, there was no chance that he survived, his body would have been burned to ashes underneath the fallen roof.
