Five Sentence Fiction - Flame

Lillie McFerrin Writes
Lillie McFerrin's Weekly Flash Fiction Prompt - 'Flame'
 And this is where it took me:

They ran at full tilt down the hill, hearing the flames crackling at their heels as the fire followed fast, blown along by the hot wind.

Johnny shouted across to his companion, “Shit Carter, what the hell did you do?”

“You told me to set fire to him man!”

“Not with that much kindling, the whole bloody forest has gone up!”

“Well at least when they find his body they won’t suspect us, well as long as our bodies aren’t next to it!” Carter replied, with a hysterical laugh.
