Have you ever wondered what happened behind other people’s closed doors! Wow! Wait there! You may holler and object but yeah, I do think about it sometimes and what brought about this weird idea?
The story of little April Jones, an innocent little girl snatched as she played near her family home, only God knows what happened to her! It was alleged she was abducted by a close family friend. And whatever happened to her afterward was behind closed doors! See my point? Wished I was right there in that seedy little house and punch the kidnapper in the face before taking her away from harm’s way.
Just imagine all kinds of atrocities people commit and at the end of the day when it’s revealed don’t you ever wish you could just bump in behind that closed door? Smashed it open and rescue the damsel in distress? Unfortunately, things don’t always go that way in the real world except in dreams! Or maybe Hollywood movies.
Right now am watching ‘Twilight’ as I am penning this post (the first series) and Kristen Stewart was saved several times from other predators by her Vampire boyfriend, I don’t really want to delve deeper on the movie but I just fantasised sometimes about having supernatural power that could help people in distress.
So there you have it. Which brought something to my remembrance, I was writing as usual in the living room after putting the kids to bed when I heard a piercing scream. I ignored it, it could be passersby playing pranks, it’s happened before but the screaming persisted so I had no choice than to investigate, (my husband was still at work by the way!)
To my horror, a lady was been assaulted in a car parked opposite my house! What effrontery!! I was shocked, didn’t know what to do so I went back upstairs and took my phone, when I opened the door downstairs, the screaming had intensified and then I dialled the police.
As if on cue, the door of the Vauxhall car opened with a vengeance and the lady was pushed out with such brute force, I almost fainted with the level of violence and the car zoomed off into the night.
I clicked my phone shut when I saw the look in the eye of the lady which seemed to say, ‘Mind your business!’
And I did, nothing more I could do. At least she wasn’t killed which made me quite happy.
was it her husband or boyfriend? otherwise why would she mind you helped?
It was probably her boyfriend, and my husband was irked I even ventured out of the house at all… Can’t blame him, with people getting stabbed for helping people in distress!
well that’s true. But, I’m like you I would have still tried.
Wow. It never ceases to amaze me how ungrateful some people can be. I can understand your husband’s worries though. His only concern is YOUR safety, not hers. Either way, kudos to you for trying….something most people wouldn’t even think twice about.
Thanks for stopping by my blog and for following! I’m really looking forward to learning more about you and reading more! 🙂
Thanks Bree, I didn’t understand it myself but I just put it down to fear, people are in abusive relationships and there is nothing an outsider can do. Thanks for your comment and I would be a constant visitor to your blog. Cheers!
Thank you! 🙂
