By soft pink night-light, from her tiny dock-side bait shop she watched the trailer as shipments transferred to the sleek ferry-night after night.

She’d called, threatened & pleaded. No one heeded.

“A fine upstanding citizen would never do such a thing”, they’d said. “Simply your imagination.”

Unto her death-bed she’d refused to retract her outlandish claim.

Three years later, headline news reported the sensational story, so incredible one could scarcely comprehend.

CHILD TRAFFICKERS Busted“. Boys lured by prominent local dentist

“Well whatta ya know?” they’d said, “Guess the Batty Ole Gal was telling the truth after all.”

  1. Shandra, Good story but also realistic. Things like that are happening in the world.and It’s scary. I think people are beginning to listen. It just has to be publicized more. Well written. —Susan

  2. Dear Shandra, Batty Old Gal was right after all! Isn’t it a sad day when people report something that’s not right, and the authorities do nothing. This has happened so much, and some people, just can’t imagine that a ‘fine, upstanding citizen’ could do something like that. Well, countless other children is on the shoulders of the naysayers in the town. Very good and creepy! Nan 🙂
