The Hitchhiker (Ch.15)

I closed the car door and went
back into the house.

Missy stayed close behind me.

I was starting to wonder
what was going on.
I pick up a complete stranger,
give him a lift and he takes off
without saying thank you or goodbye.
I got the kids up for breakfast.

Missy and I didn't talk
about Tony.

Cynthia: "So, did you have a
good sleep last night you guys?"

Robin: "Yes, mom I did."

Bret: "Me too, mommy."

Stephanie: "I didn't, I was waiting
for you to come home."

Cynthia: "I am so sorry, I wasn't here
to give you kids a
hug and kiss good night."

Bret: "It's okay, mommy, I forgive you."

After the kids finished their breakfast,
I got them dressed and ready to go
with their grandparents for the day.
I was thinking, after they left,
about turning on the tv
and catching up on the
hit and run accident.

Around 10:00, the kids grandparents
showed up to get them.
They didn't stay long,
so it's a good thing I already
had things packed for the kids
before they showed up.

Cynthia: "Bye guys, have a good day
and be good for nanny and grampie!"

All three ran back into the house
to give me a hug and kiss goodbye.

"Bye mom, we love you!"

All three of them said at the same time.

After the car left the driveway,
Missy and I headed for the livingroom
and turned on the television.

We sat down on the couch.
Low and behold, they were talking
about the hit and run accident.

Missy: "Just in time."

Cynthia: "Yes, now we can find
out who the victim was."

Television Announcer: "We have a picture
of the victim."

I dropped my cup on the floor
and it shattered.
It was a picture of Tony,
the hitchhiker.

Cynthia: "Oh my God, that's Tony!"

Missy: "Are you sure?"

Cynthia: "Yes, I'm positive!"

Turns out,
the lonely hitchhiker was a

This was wonderful. U should write more short stories, u r very good at it. I may have figured out who Tony was, a few chapters ago, but this was still an awesome story. I am dissappointed it has come to an end. Write another one, please sis, I'll buy u 2 presents for Christmas instead of just one, if u do...LoL...Hugz...Jillian

I've read the whole series! Wow what an unexpected ending, I loved it. I thought Tony was the driver, not the victim. Great job! I have to agree with India, You need to write another story you are very good at them.
Yours.............Tracy
