“Family Waves” (29)

Sunday morning when I woke up, Sandy was still on my mind. I called her again. But the phone just rang and rang, a recording came on. (leave a message) I left her a message this time, and ask her to call me. I even left my number for her. The day passed, there wasn’t any return call.

Monday, I didn’t see Sandy at the train station.

I called her cell again, but the answer machine came on again. I was afraid for her because I haven’t heard anything from Sandy, since Saturday night of the party.

After I got done work ,the first thing I was gone to do, when I got home. Was, do what I wanted to do Saturday night, call the police and report her missing.

When I got home, Morgan wasn’t their, she is probably over Kristin’s house.

I then called the police and reported Sandy missing. I told the police officer, what she looked like,and I didn’t know where she lived. Because we weren’t that close, Sandy never told me. I went on to explain, how we met.

The policeman on the phone said, “Maybe she took off with her boyfriend?” “No I don’t think so ! “ Joni answered”. The last time I talked to her on the phone. Sandy said she met her ex at the place where she worked before, which is called, Barrow’s. He wanted to talk to her. She did say it wasn’t far from the pizza shop, where I was suppose to meet her.Sandy really seemed scared of him, because she said,he was acting crazy.

“All right!” the police said. “You gave me a description of her. Tell me again what her full name is.” Her name is Sandy Heets.

Okay! the police officer said! “We’ll do a backup check on this Sandy Heets”.

“Officer!” “ Before I hang up,I don’t know if this will help.

“The same night I was waiting for Sandy in front of the pizza shop,she didn’t show up, so I call her on her cell phone:450-334-6616 the answer machine came on. I left a message for her.

Afterwards while walking home a man in a mid-size blue automobile— stopped me and asked me for directions. When I got closer to the car, to give him the directions, he sprayed mace in my face. I couldn’t see very good, but I ran to the nearest place of business,and they called the police. Maybe he has something to do with Sandy’s disappearance? “

“Lady!” the officer said, “Like I said we’ll check this out”.


“Family Waves” (28)

Around 11:45p.m. The police car pull up in front of Joni’s house.

All three girls were looking out the window, when they seen a car pull up. Jonie got out of the car and went into the house. The girls couldn’t wait to hear what happen to Joni. Once Joni came inside,she sat down and started to tell them all what happened.
I got a call from a friend ,her name is Sandy. She was telling me on the train where we both met. That her boyfriend was abusing her. She wanted to get away from him, but she was afraid. And I told her if she ever needed my help anytime call me, then I gave her my cell number.
Sandy called around seven-thirty tonight,and ask me to meet her in front of the pizza parlor. She asked me to wait for her,because she is trying to get rid of him.
Anyway,I went to the pizza parlor and waited quite a while for her and she never came.

So I got tired of waiting, it was getting darker and colder. I called her on her cell phone but the answer machine came on.
I left a message and told her I was walking home. Because it was too cold to wait any longer.
Then I started walking home, and this car pull in front of me while I was crossing the street. The man in the car asked me for directions . When I started to walk closer to him, he sprayed mace in my face —– I was stunned. I couldn’t see that well ,but I started running,to get away from him. I ran to the nearest business that I seen was opened, and they called the police for me.She also said the police checked the area and they didn’t see a car like she described. Which was a mid-size blue car.

“Family Waves ” (24)

Nobody heard Joni go out. She had a call from a friend ,that was very important.

Her name was Sandy, and she had a fight with her boyfriend,and needed Joni’s help.

Sandy ask her to meet her down the street at the pizza shop. Sandy said that she’ll be standing in front,if not, just wait for me. I’m making this call from the ladies room. Jeff called me, and asked me to meet him in the bar at my old place of employment,which is called, Barrow.
Barrow’s, isn’t far from the pizza shop. He said he wanted us to talk and straighten things out. So I told him I would meet him there. I thought maybe after this he would leave me alone.

Boy was I wrong, again !

I don’t think, I was there, more than ten minutes. When Jeff started yelling and screaming at me.
After I told him…..He was mistaken….. I definitely wasn’t going to go back with him. We could just stay friends.
If we weren’t in public, he would of hit me again, like he did before.

I said,”Why don’t I call the police?”

I’m gonna try and get away from him. Please wait for me. Jonie, I’m so scared.
Before she hung up,she made me promise, that I wouldn’t call the police.
Sandy said,it would only make things worst.
I wanted to call the police,but I promised Sandy,I wouldn’t.

Joni hurried and got dress, she didn’t know Sandy that long, but she sounded like she was in real trouble. I promised that I would help her if I could.
Joni was the type to try and help anyone who needed help.

She didn’t have time to tell Morgan she was going out, besides the party was loud with music and people having a good time. I’ll be back before she even knows, I’m going.

Joni walked down to the Pizza shop which was about two and a half blocks,from her house.
