Excerpt from Looking Through Blind Eyes
Daniel had insisted to leave and put gas in the car for their trip; despite Janie’s protest they could get it when they left. Something in his last words brought a cold chill to Janie. As he was about to walk out the door, he paused
“Janie?” His tone and expression so serious and somber.
“What is it?” Janie frowned.
“I love you baby sister. Never forget everything I ever do is for you.” Janie thought for a brief moment she seen tears well up in his eyes.
“I love you too. What’s wrong? You act like you’re not coming back?” Janie started to approach him, but Daniel quickly exited, yelling back to her.
“Just remember that!”
Therefore, when it had been hours and Daniel still had not returned home, Janie had a knot in her stomach that said something was very seriously wrong. It wasn’t like Daniel not to at least text or call to say why he was running late. Even if he had to do a quick “job” as Daniel called it; he would at least let her know so she didn’t worry. As nightfall came and went, Janie’s fears and worries began to escalate. Daniel would never let Janie worry for this long. She finally gave in to the fear and began to call the only people she knew to call, Rico and Anthony.
