“Mom,” Molly sputtered out, “can you help BJ go home to her mother’s and not be taken to her fathers to be punished for not letting her cousin fight over territory to sell stolen Gadgets?”
“I would if I could,” she quietly replied as if she were tied up to her chair. “But the police will not do anything to help us. He has custody and he will just go pick her up at her mother’s. If I take her I Could be charged with kidnapping. Then I could not help others.”
The kids thanked her and filed out to the bikes. Larry snatched his sister and they took off saying, “Told you so. People can only act on the feelings my dad allows.”
Cuz went to Molly’s mom, the counselor and she explained what she had told the children.
Determined to be a hero Cuz left the counselor with more love in his heart. He looked into the sky and seen Cuddles and Mr Do had grown.

Maybe the next stop would help more. Off to Charlette’s mother’s Dive.
