    2- Finding everything in peace, I returned home.

    They're two a tad different pictures floating in my brain. The first one is she returned home and then, she found peace in mind. Tranquility floods her heart. However, the second one tells that she first found everything in peace. She thinks it's about time to return home, sweet-home.

    How does your picture look like?

    I understand what you said. "He returned home, finding his neighbor's house on fire." In this sentence, he did go back home but his house was just fine. Instead, he found his neighbor's house was on fire.

    Does that sound fine?
    Cassi?!
