A couple months go by….
A couple months into the school year and Hunter is slowly adjusting. He is doing very well in math and science with the other advanced kids, he has been switched to a different history class, and he gets daily help with his English skills by his friend Devin and his mother.
It’s the beginning of a new year for Hunter in terms of the calendar and he is starting to feel alright in his new environment. He still sticks to his one friend and gets anxious often, but the school was chosen because of the extra help it would give the young boy.
As the school day comes to a close…
It’s the end of the first day back after Christmas Break. Hunter is waiting for Luke to come get him from his school. Luke is 16 now and has his driver’s liscense due to a lower cost given to their mother.
A car appears in the line that Hunter recognizes. It is the car Luke uses, a very old car given by the owner of the orphanage they came from, and because of the tinted windows for safety, he opens the car door after checking the plates were right and freezes. His birth father grabs him and puts him in the seat.
The teacher, who is standing watching this, immediately knows something is wrong and calls the mother on the phone and says something is very wrong. Luke is seen running towards them after seeing the car and panics. He goes up to the teacher and is told to stay with them and not go after his brother. He takes the phone and talks to his mother.
“Mom? Hunter is in the car and was taken. I don’t know who did it.”
“I have ideas Luke, but I am currently talking to police at my door right now. Stay where you are. The cop that is here is having his partner come and get you in her car so that you’re safe. I’ll be with the other.”
“Is he alright?”
“I hope so Luke. I really do. I found a place to keep Lucky for the night. Our neighbor is taking him in that has the other lab he loves to play with.”
I hope you all enjoy this story so far. If you haven’t seen the rest of the story, it’s about a young boy’s life who was in an orphanage and finally adopted at around 4 years old. He was given up by a mother who was on drugs and didn’t want anything to do with a child and a father who couldn’t afford it by himself, but is thought to have domestic abuse situations that were never brought to trial from previous relationships.
Happy blogging everyone and let me know what you think in the comments.
