Lizzie screams when he saw what the man outside the window did with his tree.

[Screaming sound]

"Lizzie! What's wrong!"

[Crying sound]

"Mr Oak...Mr. Oakleson just...just...[crying].."

Her mother looks out the window and saw her neighbour with his flame thrower. She then shuts it tight before pulling the curtains together.

"Now listen here, Lizzie, Mr Oakleson was just trying...trying to...to scare those hornets away...they're very, very bad...that's why he had to chase them away..."

[Crying sound]

"But..but...why must he burn them? Fire is bad...[crying]..."

"Lizzie...shhh...come here..."

Her mother tried to calm her down after turning her away from the window.

[Crying sound]

"There, there now...shh...he means them no harm...it's just a little fire to scare them away...nothing more..the hornets are bad...not the fire..."

Truth was, Adele can still hear the roaring sound of the flames even at that distance. She even imagined she can hear the hornet's dying sound.

"....fire is bad..."
