DeeGee told Marla she would tell her parents about the two strangers when they returned from their vacation.
Austin and Rose, DeeGee’s parents, had agreed to take their friend’s niece and nephew to a small island near the mainland. He had gotten sick and was unable to take them so he hired someone who owned a boat to transport them back home.
The morning of the trip was gorgeous with the sun reflecting on the water causing it to look like crystal glass, and there were small rippling waves. The clouds looked like gigantic white marshmallows.
The following day, their friend, Bob had not heard from them, but had received an urgent message from the children’s parents telling him that the children had not returned home yet.
Bob immediately tried to contact the boat owner, only to find out that the owner was reported missing.
