John took off his helmet, turnout gear, and boots in the truck room and hung the jacket on his assigned peg. Just above the peg was a handmade label that read, ‘FF#121 Wilson.’ John still felt a sudden surge of pride every time he looked at the label. His father would be proud too, he reminded himself. After 32 years and a couple of million fires, his father still had the passion for it in his blood until the end.

It was still an hour before dinner, so John washed up and settled down in the old worn chair beside the phone to do what he always did after returning from a fire call. He dialed each digit and then waited. ‘Hullo’ a tiny voice finally answered. John was happy to hear the sound of the voice he had heard only in his head for the past two hours. ‘Daddy, have you been on a fire?’ the inquisitive child asked. ‘As a matter of fact, I have son.’ John returned. ‘Wow Dad, I can’t wait until I get big, so I can fight fires too.’ ‘I know, Son.’

1.What motivated John to become a firefighter?

2.How does his motivation reflect his character and relationship with his father?
