Garnet and Damon stood by the mailboxes staring at the house.  The moment Garnet glanced over at Damon, he knew for certain that they had found the right house.

Damon’s face was wet from his tears as he looked at the two small wind chimes hanging from the porch.  He was vividly reliving his kidnap that took place eight years ago.

He was abruptly awakened when a large hand clamped over his mouth and nose.  He struggled for breath and his heart was fiercely pounding as he was taken from the room.  He was rapidly kicking his feet, but became restrained even more tightly.  He heard the faint sound of his favorite wind chimes for the last time.

That was the night his childhood was carelessly tossed aside and replaced by a very rigorous life in the militia.

  1. They’ve definitely lived through some horrendous events. At least they’re free now. Hopefully Damon’s family still live in the house and a reunion lies in the near future. 🙂


  2. It was really interesting to go back to events before your story actually started, Jessie. It worked well at this point, after all the two boys have been through in the last few episodes. The kidnapping scene was nicely told. I hope Damon will be reunited with his parents. 🙂


  3. Aw, the poor kid. To be kidnapped from the safest place he knew, his home.
    And now he have an insight to his background. I say, what’s are they doing back at the house, wouldn’t the militia find it easy together there?


  4. Good observation, however it had been so many years that passed and no real proof ..yet, that the parents still lived there, plus there are other facts in the story that have not been given at this time. Thank you, I appreciate your commenting.
