The Dark Night

The clouds are touching the ground.

Darkness surrounds, making visibility almost dangerous, on the two way street.

Sara began to feel a little spooked. Her Cellphone had no service.

There were not very many cars on the road. The Red SUV had been behind her since she left the store parking lot. She hoped that once she exited the highway it would keep going.

Without signaling, Sara took her exit quickly and so did the Red SUV. She was almost rear ended. Really panicking, still no Cellphone service Sara began to say a silent prayer, lips moving, but no words escaped.

Sara still trying to be optimistic, thought maybe they just happen to be going the same way. Her instinct, gut and heart were dancing to another tune, as she pulled into a Walmart Parking .

She happen to pull into an empty parking space right in front of the main door. As she put the car in park, looking in her rear view mirror. She could see the Red SUV faintly in the distance with their lights on high beam pulled on the side.

Sara noticed the Police parked in front of her one row over. The parking lot was well lit, then she felt a sense of security, as she remembered the Security Cameras all through the Parking Lot.

Her heart was pounding, she was screaming inside, but she knew this was not the time to break. She needed to get inside or cause a diversion.

Deciding to keep calm as to no Alert the followers, once others were going in and coming out, she would blend in making her way into the store.

Sara got her break, slipped out of her car and into the store. She immediately ran into two officers, alerting them.

They responded quickly, taking her into Loss Prevention Room to view. After identity SUV, they called for backup.

We watched on camera as the team of Officers surrounded, arrested then escorted the four men away.

Sara began to wax cold just wondering who those men were and what were they capable of. Just then a female officer came in and told Sara how very lucky she was.

The men were wanted for Sex-trafficking and Human-trafficking. They had found three woman tied and gagged in the back of the truck. They were known to abduct in fours.

Sara broke-down crying, tears of Great Joy and feeling Thankful…

Be Alert, Be Grateful, Pray Always

    1. I appreciate your encouraging and kind words. I definitely wanted to bring awareness to the human tragedy! It comes from a real place in my life as a 12 year girl. Then as Mother with my baby in a Target Store in El Paso and then at a Walmart when my daughters were four and five. It is my indeed my pleasure is indeed mine.
