One Minute Fiction — Kidnapped

I came out of the grocery store with my baby girl in her stroller, officer. I realized when I got to the car that I left my purse with my car keys in it on the checkout counter. I gave my little sweetie her bottle, left her by the car, and literally ran back into the store to get my purse and keys. I couldn’t have been gone for more than thirty seconds and by the time I got back to my car, my little darling was gone and all that was here was her bottle.

Please, officer, you must find my precious baby. My husband is going to kill me!

    Happened here few weeks ago. Woman left baby in car. Ran into shop few minutes. Returned to find car and baby gone. Maybe didn’t realize baby on board? Kidnapping? Don’t know the outcome……

      That was totally irresponsible of that woman, but I hope she got her baby back.

    I hope the grocery store has some surveillance footage, so they can catch the creep before the sweet baby is harmed.

    I’m sure it happens. It shouldn’t. Never. Under any circumstances.

    I can’t imagine ever leaving a baby alone. Husband should do the same to her. ( leave her alone and helpless)

    Find the baby vex at de the husband will kill her? How precious is her baby — to her?! That’s one hell of a decision, leaving a baby in a parking lot and alone. Don’t count on the police, by the way. The Supreme Court has said theit high profile and authority doesn’t mean they are responsible to citizens (even well behaved citizens).

    Sigh… autocorrect.

    In addition to “theit” being properly their, “vex at de” should be simply because.

    Far to often kids and pets get left alone in often hot cars. But really… who cares about what her husband would do. Priority one should be finding the baby… maybe there is more than meets the eye here.
