“Kindness”


I had to take the bus this morning,my Chevy SUV broke down yesterday. So, I put it in the shop to get fixed. I’m no fan of the buses, but you have to, what you have to do.

I’m on my way to the toy store in town. I’m going to buy a birthday present for little Timmy, who lives next door to me. His birthday is tomorrow, he’ll be seven years old.

His mother Joan, told me he likes to play boardgames….especially Monopoly. More than likely, I’ll find something for him.

As the bus pulled and stopped in front of the toy store,it started to rain. I waited for the door to open, to get off the bus,then my foot slipped getting off.
I fell right in the arms of this handsome guy. I felt so embarrassed.
The bus driver yelled,”Lady are you all right?”

“Yes,I’m fine!”

I know my face was red,because it felt warm….. But I was okay.

The fellow was still holding me.He then left me go,and said,”That’s a close one.”

“Thank you so much!” “I better watch where I’m walking next time.”

It starting to pour and I said, “I better get going.”

“My name is Jeff,you didn’t tell me your name.”

“Nice to meet you Jeff,lets go under the awning next to the post office.
Both of us ran laughing under the awning.

“I chose a nasty day to shop,I chuckled.”

“Jeff my name is Darcy. I’m on my way to the toy store,to buy a gift for my next door neighbor.”

“That’s nice!” he looked at his watch, “I have to get to work,here is my cellphone number.” “Call me”

After he left,I ran into the toy store. I ask the store clerk,where the board games were. She said,”In aisle four.”

I found the monopoly game,purchase it,the cashier was nice enough to wrap it for me.
When I went back outside,the sun was shining. “This is April weather.” I mumbled.

I decided to stop at the library,to see if I could find a good book. This was Saturday,I didn’t have anything plan. My girlfriend Stacy,ask me if I wanted to go down to the shore,this weekend. But I told her my vehicle was in shop…I had to hold on to my money.

I found two romance novels,after staying in the library for a couple of hours. I was ready to take the bus back home.

When I got back home,I knock on Joan door. Timmy answered the door,and I handed him his gift. He gave me a big hug,and thanked me. It made me feel so good.
The weekend went too fast, Monday morning came. Before I left to go to work,there was a knock at my door. It was the man from the auto shop.
I opened the door,and he handed me my key.

“You had a loose wire,I just connected it,and it’s fine to drive.”

“There is no charge,for this.”

“Thank you so much,I won’t forget you.”

“Have a great day Darcy.”

“I was elated,he saved me a lot of money. My day was great for the rest of the day!”

After I arrived home from work,my cellphone rang.

It was Joan,”Hi Darcy,I want to thank you for making Timmy so happy.He couldn’t believe, you knew what he wanted for his birthday.

After he ate his dinner,and did his homework. Timmy took the game across the street to show his friend Ms. Hooks..She is a widow,and Timmy stops by to see her. They both like to play board games.”

“I’m so happy to here that. Timmy is such a thoughtful young man.”

“Yes he is Darcy,thanks again,I’ll talk to you later.”

“After I get settled,I think,I’ll give Jeff a call and see where that takes me.”

“Bad Choices We Make”


Lita didn’t have a choice, but to do what she had to do. Little Mark, age six months,and his brother Marty,who is two, isn’t being taken care of properly.

Lita was only nineteen, without a family nearby. When she was sixteen, she ran-away from home which, was in North Carolina. She found herself in Delaware, after taking free rides from truck-drivers.

“Well, I shouldn’t say free rides….that is when my problem started. Sex and food in exchange for rides in different trucks. I didn’t know where I was headed, and at the time,I didn’t care.”

“Until about a month later,I got tired of living that way.”

While I was walking along interstate 95. A tracker trailer pulled over.The driver ask me if I wanted a lift.

I excepted his offer… little did I know what would happen next.

We talked for a while,and he asked me where I was from. I told him my story.

“I’m sorry to hear your sad story.” he said.

Next he pulled in at a truck-stop. When he was parked,he got out….came over to my side and opened the door. I got out, as I turned around,to shut the door. I noticed next to that door,their was a second door.along side of it.

The trucker said,”Let’s get in the back and eat,you must be hungry.”

“Which I was.”

He then opened the second door,and ask me to get in, which I did.

“Before the door was completely shut….he was all over me.”

“I yelled at him to stop.”

“The truck-driver just smiled at me.”

“He said,”what did you expect, a party?”

“After he raped me, he threw me out of his truck.

“The last words I heard from him was,”Go home to your mama!”

I stayed hid for a whole day, until I seen this young guy…. somewhere around my age. He got out of his truck,and got a drink from the water foundation. He seen me,and ask me what I was doing their.

“I told him I was lost.”

That was the beginning of our relationship. He lived in Stater,Pennsylvania,that is where he took me.

His name is Marty,and he loved to party..the nickname his friends gave him.
One thing led to another…I partied with him. “why not!”

Before I knew it,I was pregnant.

When Marty found out……he said,”Don’t tell my mom,she doesn’t like you anyway.”

“What did I get myself into? What does your mother have to do with the baby?” sighed Lita

“You know I haven’t worked in a while,and she has been giving me money.”

“Well!” “Looks like your going to have to find a job,and stop getting high everyday.”

“Who do you think your talking to?” “I took you off the streets,why don’t you get a job?” Further more,you get high with me,you seem to like it.”

This argument about Marty getting a job,went on for quite a while. I finally found a job,I wanted to saved enough money. So that we could find a little apartment, before the baby was born. I hated living here in his mothers house.

When “Little Marty” was born, we were still living with his mother. It seemed the money I was trying to save,went mostly on getting high,with Marty. Marty was right about me enjoying to get high with him.

I have to get myself straighten out for the babies sake at least. Marty, I can’t depend on. I hate to leave “Little Marty” with his dad, when I work…..who knows what’s going on then. Sometimes,I leave the baby with Shirley, a older lady down the street, when I go to work.

Months went by,and I got the shock of my life. Yes, your right,I was pregnant again.

“When I found out, I cried for weeks. This isn’t fair,for the children we’re having. I thought about,having an abortion, but I couldn’t do it…..it’s a human being…my baby!”

“I started putting money away,and didn’t tell Marty. By the time the baby comes,I should have enough,to get an apartment for all of us. Maybe things will change,if Marty’s away from his mother.

No matter what he does,it’s fine with her.”

A month after Mark was born,I told Marty,I found us a little apartment.

“You crazy woman!” I’m not going anywhere. This is my home,if you want to move out,take the kids with you.”

“These two children belong to both of us. Their your responsibly too. Just as much as mine.”

“Take the kids and get the hell out of here.” “Don’t come back!” “I’m sure you can be replaced.”

After I gathered some of the children’s belonging. I went over to Shirley’s house. “I ask her if she would watch them until I got myself together.”

“Take as long as you need,they will be safe with me.”said Shirley

Lita left her two children their with Shirley. She was on her way to pay the rent for the apartment. But instead,she found herself back at Marty house.Lita needed a fix…..Marty was glad to see her.

“I knew you would come back….they always come back.

“This went on for a couple of weeks. Lita didn’t know sometimes, where she was at.

When Lita came back to reality,she couldn’t believe what she had done. All the money she saved was going. She didn’t even know how her children were.

“That’s it Marty!” .”How low,I’ve become. You brought me down to your level.” “Good by!” “You won’t see me or the babies anymore.”

As she walk out the door and slammed it. Lita heard Marty yelling out the window,”you’ll be back.”

“That was when,I made my mind up,to get help for myself,and then be a mother to my children.”

“I stopped over to Shirley’s house to see my children. I told Shirley what I was going to do. She was tickled pink,”take as long as you need.”

“What a Surprise!”


Several hours have pass, and no word from Nick. Something must be going on, or else he is really mad.

It was unusual to Tammy, whenever she was going for very long, he would call at least three times.   She couldn’t figure out why, last night, he didn’t call her, while she was sitting in the park….planning this escape.

Tammy looked at her gas gauge,as she was driving to her hometown.

“Oh Shit!” “I’m about to run out of gas.”” “Shit!” “Just my luck!”

“Oh Great!”  “I really plan this right, almost ready to run out of gas, with little money.  she sigh out loud.

I’m near mom’s house, which I didn’t plan on stopping by.   I don’t feel like listening to her. “I told you so!”

Instead,she pulled into the nearest gas station, took the last seven dollars out of her purse.  Got out of her car,and paid the man, put the gas in her empty tank.

Afterward, she knew what she had to do.

Tammy drove in town not far from where she was born. The town was called Minx, in PA. She didn’t think she would be back so soon.

On the corner was Minx Deli,where she worked at, right after she graduated from high school.  She was their until she started dating Nick.  He talked her into leaving their, and moving in with him.

When Tammy walked into the deli, Judy, her friend from back in school,was behind the counter.

“What’s up Tammy!”

“I came in to see Ms. Minx.. I need a job today!”

“She’s in the back, just knock at her door.”

“Thanks Judy!”

Tammy went into the back,and knocked on her door.

“Come on in Tammy.” “Shut the door behind you.”

“You don’t have to say a word Tammy,I heard you tell Judy you need a job. I wouldn’t hire you again,if I didn’t need help. I’m going to give you a second chance.”

“Thank you,thank you, Ms. Minx.”

“This is your lucky day. Don’t even think of walking out again. If you do,you better not step your foot in my Deli again. Now go out their with Judy, and help her.”

As Tammy walked back out in the Deli,she said to Judy, I’m your new co-worker.”

“Great!” “Because I need the help. I’m tired of yelling for Ms. Minx to come out and help me.”

“I have to find a place to stay. I don’t want to go back to my mom’s house. She hasn’t talked to me,since I moved in with my boyfriend.”

“You can sleep on my couch, until you get your own place.”

After Judy and Tammy closed up the Deli. Tammy got in her vehicle and followed Judy to her condo. When they both arrived at their destination. Judy showed Tammy around her condo.
While Tammy was unpacking some of her things. Judy told Tammy she would be back in a couple of hours.

“Make yourself at home, I’m going over to my boyfriend’s house for a while. He called me this afternoon, asked me to come over. He said his room-mate moved out.”

I’ll be fine Judy, go and enjoy yourself.”

As Tammy was going through her things,she couldn’t fine her good watch,that her late grandmother gave her. She didn’t have the nerve to call Nick. At the same time, she knew if she wanted it back,she would have to.

“I’ll just wait until I get enough nerve up.” sigh Tammy

Two months later, she started looking for an apartment. There were days, that Judy didn’t come to work, and nights, she didn’t come home.

One day,Judy came home and asked Tammy,if she wanted to take the condo over.

“I’m moving out of here, and moving in with my boyfriend.”

“Tammy answered, “I can stop looking for a place. Their wasn’t any that I really liked.”

A week later Judy moved out. Before she said good-by to Tammy. She stopped in her tracks.

“I almost forgot,I have something for you. Let me go out in my car and get it for you.”

When Judy came back in,she handed her a little box.

Tammy opened it,and her eyes lit up.

“How did you get my watch!”

“My boyfriend gave it to me last night for you. He said to tell you hi!”

“It’s my Life We’re Talking About”


Everybody needs a vacation,thought Brianna Justly.  I have a lot of thinking to do, it depends on the rest of my life.

Dustin Antin is twenty-three years old,with light brown hair that he wears short. He is 5’9″, and a little heavy. He graduated from Warlord high school, in Pucks Pa., a while ago like  his girlfriend Brianna.

Dustin has  had   several different jobs, that he didn’t like, since graduating,so he just quits. He is still living home with is parents,and his younger brother and sister.

“What the heck!”   he muttered. “I have all the time in the world to find a job.”

Brianna and Dustin started going out together about a year ago. Just about the time her mother and father were getting a divorce.

They both have been friends since school and they both have the same likes.   “Well almost”

Brianna wants to make something out of her life,she has been working and trying to save money,to go to night school,to become a nurse.

Five days a week she works at a nursing home,  sometimes six,   trying to save her money to get ahead. Nevertheless, something always comes up with Dustin,and he needs a little help.

He tells her he’ll help her out when he gets a job.

Dustin has always liked Brianna. He likes her long straight blonde hair, blue eyes,and her slender body. Maybe she weighs 90 lbs,thought Dustin, maybe some day I’ll marry her.

That’s what happened,Dustin ask Brianna to marry him. That started the fireworks.

Brianna question him right away.” You don’t even have a job, your living home with your parents and loving it. I love you Dustin, but I can’t live that way.”

“I’ll change Brianna, I love you.”

“Let me think about this,because I’m talking about my life.”

Dustin grew angry, “I’ll give you a week to think about it,and the answer better be yes.”

“We’ll see Dustin,we’ll see.

After Brianna went home,it didn’t take her long to think about it.

If Dustin is threatening me now.  What will happen if  I decide to marry him,and, I do something he doesn’t like.

She muttered to herself,  “I’m glad he brought out his bad side now.”

The next morning  when she awoke, Brianna  told her mother,what happen between her and Dustin. That her decision was to take a long vacation, maybe she wouldn’t be coming back. Her bags were all ready pack,then she loaded her car,and kissed her mother good-by. Her first stop was at her bank,she withdrew all her money,and was on her merry way,to start her new life.

The Sister,That I Thought,I Knew (60)


I sat down and proceeded to read the rest of the letter after dinner,it continued like this :

After we moved into our apartment,we both had our ups and downs. I had to be the strong one for both of us.
I’m proud to say,we both have been clean,for almost three years. Ryan and I are going to get married soon. If it wasn’t for him,who knows where,I might be.

How is Tamara doing? I bet she has grown into a beautiful woman. I know she must hate me,for not being there while she was growing up. I can’t thank you and Ben enough,for taking care of her. Who knows how she might of grown up,if she stayed with me. I don’t even want to think of the outcome.

How is Mom,and our two brothers? They all probably hate me to,for what I have done,all these years. There is nothing,I can do about it. Just try to keep myself and Ryan straight.

If you want to, write me, when you get a chance.

Love,

Autumn

Before I put the letter on my desk,I asked,Ben if he wanted me to read the letter to him.

“No Faith” “I just want to know if she knows she still has a daughter?”

“Yes Ben,she does!
Autumn thinks that everyone hates her.”

“I wouldn’t blame them if they all did,especially Tamara.”

“I’m surprised at you Ben,you don’t have it in you to hate anyone.”

“Your right Faith! Autumn just pisses me off. I feel for Tamara,her mother wasn’t around when she was growing up. When she needed her the most,we did the best we could,but we’re not her mother.”

“I know Ben,I feel the same way. Tamara,grew-up to be a beautiful and intelligent woman. I can’t believe she is married either.”
“We both have to admit it,we did a great job raising her,like our own. We tried having our own children,but it never happened. I guess it was meant to be.”

“Ben,how about if I make us some hot chocolate,and watch,a little television?”

“Okay Faith!” I don’t know how long I’ll be up,because,I’m tired.”

“I’m tired also,I thought we could unwind a little,before we did.”

“Sounds good to me,Faith.”

The Sister,That I Thought,I Knew (59)


Everything was going well,for everybody. One day,when I came home from work. I gathered my mail out of the mail box. Just a few bills,and a lot of advertisement,I thought. Stuck to an envelope,from the electric company. Their was an envelope,with a return address”9764 Linen Avenue,Liken, North Caroline. It was address to me,and I couldn’t imagine who it was from. But deep in my heart,I was hoping it was from Autumn.
I hurried to unlock my front door. Once I got in the door,I threw the rest of the mail,on the kitchen table. I sat down,and carefully opened the envelope. There was a letter in their. It read:

Dear Faith,

I guess you can’t believe,that I finally wrote to you. I guess you already heard,that I left the detox center,in the middle of the night. I’m sorry if I unset you and the rest of the family. But I had to do things my way,to end,my habit.
While I was in the center,I met a man,who’s name is Ryan Hibbson. He is a couple of years older than me. Ryan came from a dysfunctional family. He said,he had the same habit I did,drugs.
We both had the same classes,I grew to know him well. Like magic,we both fell in love,with each other.

One day we got this idea,to leave the center. We agreed, that if we both stuck together,then we could kick the habit together,if we really tried. Ryan and I had this crazy idea,to leave the center in the middle of the night. Just leave our personal things behind,and start a new life together. Which we both thought was so romantic. So we made our escape,a week later.
Ryan said,we could go over to his brother Bruce’s house. Because he wanted him to straighten himself out long time ago. So that is where we ended up. His brother and wife was glad to see him.They asked him all kinds of questions,and he told them,where he’s been.
To try to straighten himself out. Also that he brought his love of his life with him.
We both stayed with them,for about three months. We both got jobs in a Nursing Home. Ryan was hired for a cook.I was hired for an aide. We both saved our money for an apartment, while we were at his brothers.
After Ryan and I had enough money for an apartment,we moved out. Bruce and his wife,treated us real nice,we hated to leave. But we had to move on and test ourselves,alone.

I looked at the clock,and it was almost 5:00. I put the letter down,so I could make dinner for Ben and I. I’ll go back to reading Autumn’s letter,after dinner.

When Ben came home,I didn’t wait until he shut the front door.

I said,”Ben,you’ll never guess,who sent me a letter?”

“Your going to tell me,Autumn?”

“Yes” I said,with tears in my eyes.

“Did she say anything about Tamara?”

“No,not yet,it’s a long letter,I haven’t read it all yet.”

“Don’t you think a mother would asked first?”

“Your right Ben,you would think so. But she hasn’t so far,just about her and her boyfriend Ryan. Lets sit down and eat. Then I can read the rest.”

The Sister,That I Thought,I Knew (55)


When I got home,I was happy to be there. I would call Ben, but I don’t want to bother him at work. I’ll just wait until he comes home tonight.
Instead,I called Mom,she answered it on the first ring.

“What were you waiting for Mom a call? Your phone only rang once.”

“I was just talking to Maxwell,he said,he can’t wait to bring Mary Ann home.So that everyone can meet her.”
“That was nice Mom. The reason I’m calling is,if you want to go Christmas shopping let me know. I just came from the mall,and when I got out into the parking lot. Some young guy,snatched my purse. The police came,and I gave him my report. The security guard,went in back of the mall,and found my purse. My money was missing,and the police said,I’m lucky it wasn’t my life.”
“He’s right Faith!” “Did you have anything else important in your purse?”

“No” “That’s why I don’t use a wallet,because of something happening like this.”

“What did Ben say?”

“Mom, I didn’t tell him yet,I’ll wait until he comes home from work.”

“Okay Faith!” I’ll let you know if I want to go shopping, talk to you later.”

I hung the phone up,and looked at the clock. I thought I better start dinner. Ben will be home in about an hour.

When dinner was almost done,Ben walked in the door

“Hi Faith! I can smell your meatloaf, I’m starving. Really busy today,I didn’t even get a chance to eat lunch.”

Ben grabbed two plates,from the cupboard. “He said,”I better wash my hands,then I’ll take the meat loaf,out of the oven,if it’s done.”
“It’s finished,I shut the oven off,just before you walked in. You do that,and I’ll finish mashing the potatoes.”

When we both sat down to eat,I told Ben what happened at the mall.

“You were lucky Faith,the money can be replaced, your life is more important. Do want you want,but this time of the year. You should have someone with you,when you go shopping.”

“I called mom and told her what happened. I also told her,if she wants to go Christmas shopping,let me know.”

“That was very smart to say. She shouldn’t be out shopping by herself either ,with those bums out their.”

“I was in the Christmas spirit when I was shopping in the mall. Until that idiot,stole my handbag. But I’m not going to let him ruin my holiday. Tomorrow,I’m going down in the basement,and dig out all my decorations. Maybe,I’ll even play some Christmas music.”

“That’s a great attitude,but just think of me,while I’m working hard.” Said Ben, laughing

“Talking about working Ben,I’m going to see what’s going on at my old job. If their not going to open soon,after the holiday’s. I’m going to look for another job. They must be having money problems,because they have, been shut down for a while.”
“You might be right Faith,things aren’t that great out there.”

The Sister,That I Thought,I Knew (54)


I woke-up this morning with big plans. I got Ben off to work,about an hour ago. He was in a better mood,he said he had slept fairly well. That made me feel good,it gave me the incentive to follow through,with my plans.

Before I start,I better make a Christmas list. This will give me a few ideas. Maxwell is coming home for the holiday’s. He asked Mom,if he could bring his girlfriend Mary Ann. I already know her answer,of-course.
Tamara and Ned are coming. Chadwick and Tracy,with their children are supposed to come. Ben’s brother and sister,are supposed to come. I’ll put Mom’s name down,there is only one thing she wants. She would love to talk to Autumn.

The only person that won’t be here is Autumn. She hasn’t called or anything. I really wish,she would contact me,and tell me,she’s okay.

I decided to go to the mall,this afternoon. As soon as I walked into the mall,I noticed it was decorated.
There was a huge Christmas tree in the main center of the mall. It was just glowing with blinking white lights.. The tree was dressed with green,red and blue Christmas balls. There also were loads of ornaments,snowmen,Santa’s, bells and stars.
Everyone had their business sparkling,with gorgeous decorations. In the background,I could hear Jingle Bells playing. A lot of people,some with their children, were walking by me chatting with their friends. Laughing,and carrying their purchases in their bags.
This scene,just put me in a more festive mood,I walked from store to store and made a few purchases.
After a while,I got hungry and tired.So I stopped in a place to eat at the mall,and ordered a roast beef sandwich,and a cup of coffee. After I was finished,I said to myself, ”that did the trick”. I gathered up my bags,and walked to my SUV in the parking lot.

As I was opening my side door,a young man,with sunglasses,and a black pull-over cap. Also wearing a big black coat,came running over to me,and quickly,grabbed my purse.
Then he ran off…I screamed for help, a man and woman ran over to me.

“What’s a matter lady! The man said, while the woman just stood there,and said nothing.

“Call the police!” I said trembling. “I just been robbed,did you see that man steal my purse?”

“No I didn’t, I’m sorry.” he answered

As we were talking,the woman with him ran into the mall,to get security.

When the woman came back with the security officer,he took my report. And ask for my license.
He told me,he already called the police.There was another man with him,and he was asked by the security officer,to go and check in the back of the mall. Maybe the robber dropped the purse.

The police finally came,and took my report, and asked me for my license. I took the card out of my glove compartment. He asked,the security officer,”if anyone checked the grounds for him?”

As he was talking,the other officer came back,with a small brown purse in his hands.

He said, “Is this yours?”

“Yes I said.”

He than handed it to me,”Check to see what is missing.”

I then checked inside my purse,”I said,”The only thing is missing,is my make-up bag. It has about fifty dollars,and change in it.”
“What about your wallet?” the police asked

“I don’t need a wallet,my important cards for my car,is in my glove compartment.

“Well, Ms. Kilisk, your lucky, you recovered your purse,except for your money. It could of been your life. If anything comes up with this guy you described, someone will contact you.”

“I thanked everyone,and got in my SUV and drove home,still shaking inside.

The Sister,That I Thought,I Knew (50)


“Mom, Chadwick and I felt we should keep quite about Autumn. We can’t do anything about it. There for, why worry you?

“ Since when, were you, and Chadwick my boss?”

“Okay Mom,you win,I’ll tell you what I know.”

I said to myself,I can’t tell her everything. It’ll only make her,worry more,and mom doesn’t need that. Especially now at her age.

“When,Autumn ask me,if she and Tamara could come and stay with me for a while.I was surprised,but I told her,of-course.
Not long after that,she and Tamara came. Autumn told me, her and Jock were getting a divorce.
Because he lost all their savings,from playing the horses.
That meant,they were stone broke,and were in the process of losing everything,they both worked hard for.
She also told me that she had to go back to North Carolina and close her business up.
Autumn asked,if Tamara could stay with Ben and I for a while. My answer was yes.
Autumn gave me some money,to spend on Tamara, which I did.
Not long after she went back to Sorta,Autumn called me from jail. She said she went back to her house,and seen Jock in bed with another woman. Then she said,she must have lost it, because she found herself in jail.

“If it were me, I probably would have killed the bitch,then him.”said mom

“I think she tried, that’s why she was in jail.
When Autumn was in jail,she met a woman friend. Mattie was her name,after they both got out of jail. Autumn moved in with her,because she didn’t have any place to go.

“Later on Autumn got hook on drugs.”

“Oh My” Mom said.

“Do you want to hear any more?”I asked

“Of Course! Where is she now?”

The Sister,That I Thought.I Knew (46)


As I was going through the mail,I noticed a letter from the Sorta Detox Center.

“Why are they writing me? (I thought) Autumn must be in some kind of trouble again.” I said out loud.

I opened the letter and I read it.

Dear Ms.Kilisk.
I am writing concerning your sister Autumn. I found your name and address,in Autumn’s records.
As you know,your sister was staying at this center,for substance addiction.Autumn was here for about three months. She was going to her therapy group everyday. Also seeing her doctor once a week. I thought she was coming along good. But last week,she didn’t say anything to me or my staff about leaving. She just walked out of here during the wee hours,when everyone was sleeping. Autumn left all of her personally belonging here, which I thought was odd. She hasn’t come back yet. I’m concerned about her relapsing. Which would be a shame,she has come a long way. My other concern is,in her therapy group,she displayed fear for her life. Autumn tell her girlfriend was murdered,by a drug dealer,for not paying-up. She’s afraid,he’ll come after her next,because she owes him a lot of money to.
I don’t normally,write to a family member.But I felt this case is a must! She had in her records,she was living on the streets.

After I read the letter, I was in shock. “Where would Autumn go? I wouldn’t know where to start. If she is living on the streets,she could be anywhere.

I heard the front door open,it was Ben coming home from work early. I forgot he said,he only had a half day today. There was a meeting with all the bosses today.
“Hi honey! What’s for dinner?”
If you hear from Autumn,please let us know.

Supervisor,
