|Her biggest fear has happened so find out what happened to her children.|
Mrs. Smith is sitting in the office talking to her co-worker. The colleague is the young new Dr. Drake. He replaced Dr. Hope who retired last week. Dr Drake asks Mrs. Smith what her biggest fear is. She replies “Losing one of my children.” Drake asks “What do you mean when you say ‘losing one of your children?' Are you talking about misplacing one of them or someone taking them?” She sits there for just the briefest of moments before saying, “Either. I mean either. I can't really see myself misplacing them. However, that would be bad be also. I guess I worry more about someone taking them. Dr Drake, I am glad you started working here with us. However, it is time to go home now. I want to beat that Friday night traffic so I can cook for my children and give my mom a break.” Dr. Drake says “That's fine Mrs. Smith yo...” As she cuts in and says, “Dr. Drake you can call me Sally.” Dr Drake replies “Thank you. Maybe once I get to know you better I will.” Sally just stands there looking and smiling at him for a moment or two. She was musing over what he had just said to her. Dr. Drake says (as she lurched bringing her back from deep thought) “I hope you have a good weekend. Goodbye.” As Sally walks out to her white BMW she felt a little spurned from Dr Drakes refusal to call her Sally. She surmised that he just didn't like her. That is why he wouldn't call her by her first name. As she climbs in her car Sally starts to quibble with herself about why Dr Drake doesn't like her. Sally puts on her seat belt and drives off. She turns on the radio and starts to unwind with some easy listening jazz. She just wants to forget about it so she doesn't build any animosity toward him. Then she remembers that she has to stop and get something for dinner. She stops and picks up things for spaghetti, because it is little Johnny's turn to pick what they have for dinner and he wants spaghetti. . She walks through the living room to get to the kitchen so she can start dinner. Sally sees her mother lying on the couch asleep. Sally asks herself “How can you be watching my kids if you are asleep?” So she starts to get things ready to cook when she realizes the children haven't came to give her a hug. She looks out the back door. Where she sees her mom's new boyfriend doing something with a shovel in the back corner of the yard. She stands there looking at him for a moment or two thinking she didn't trust this man. There is no sign of the children out back. So she heads up stairs and looks in the bedrooms. She doesn't find the children. She starts to panic and yells “Johnny, Troy!” as she runs around the house looking for her kids. Her mom wakes up and yells for Frank to come in the house. Frank comes running. Just as Frank gets in the house, he hears Sally yelling at the top of her lungs “Where are my children?” He rushes into the living room, where he sees Sally standing over her mom with a knife yelling “Where are my children?” Frank runs over and grabs the knife and knocks Sally unconscious. Meanwhile, at the office, Dr Drake is finishing up some paper work as his assistant walks in the office and asks “Do you want me to file Mrs. Smith paper work?” The Dr. says, “Yeah here it is.” The assistant stops and asks, “Dr. I know you can't say much, but do you think Mrs. Smith will ever except that she doesn't works here and that her children are a figment of her imagination?” Tweet
