SUNDAY PHOTO FICTION…January 17, 2016
Never Lose Hope
Lexy noticed how Emma was looking at the brick building.
“I’m sorry I drove down this street,” Emma.
“That’s alright, can we stop at the drugstore on the next corner?”
“Jen, are you coming in with me?” Emma asked.
“Jen, remember the child they found in that brick apartment building we drove by on this street?” Lexy said.
“Yes, and found alive! They think he is about six years old.”
“Well, Emma’s ex-husband took their baby and she still has hopes of finding him, but he is about eight now.”
“I didn’t know that. That’s awful!”
Lexy turned the television on.
“Lexy! That child reminds me so much of Eric, but he’s the wrong age,” Emma said sadly.”
The news reporter said, “If anyone knows Sunny Harris, call your local police. They believe she is this child’s mother.”
Lexy shouted, “that’s you, Emma! They don’t know you changed your name and Eric is eight, not six.”
Emma got her son back.
The newspaper article stated Eric as being small for his age and is eight years old, not six. The child’s father was found dead outside his apartment door.
