FLASH FICTION FOR THE PURPOSEFUL PRACTITIONER- 2017
“Marie, why do you come here day after day? She’s gone, and you know she isn’t here waiting for you!” Melissa said.
“I don’t know! I just need to come !”
“Alright, but let’s at least eat outside this time.”
“No! I need to sit inside.”
“Who is that woman over there? I always see her here, ” Maria asked.
“I have no idea, but why do you think it’s important?”
“Because I saw her here the day Emily disappeared.”
“So, that’s not unusual. She probably eats here on a regular basis because she likes the food.”
“Oh no! I just saw that woman take that little boy outside and he doesn’t belong to her,” Maria said.
“How do you know?”
“Because when we came in he was sitting with a man and she was sitting on the other side of the room. The man just went toward the restroom.”
“Are you sure?”
“Yes! We have to call the police!
“Thankfully you were so alert, Maria. The police stopped another kidnapping and you have your daughter back home with you! The police said they found four of the missing children, and all were alive,” Melissa said.
