A Safe And Positive Ending
Bob Kirkpatrick (The Empty Place, WR #33, April 1995) reports his daughter returned home from her adventure with a young man of questionable
character. She had a fever, slept for five days, and ate like a horse the first couple of days. Some of those she trusted abandoned
her when the going got rough, and others she trusted stole most of her possessions. It seems she learned some valuable lessons the
hard way, and who it was she could REALLY trust. We're glad the story had a safe and a little more positive ending than some. For
those of you tied into the Internet, Bob can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Those of you who know Judy Tofflemire, Admissions at Cascade School in Whitmore, California make a note: Her name is now Judy Becks!
