A woman finds something interesting on her way home

After she had gone from the party, but

Before she had arrived home, something

Curious had happened on the way. Something

Decidedly out of the ordinary, where

Everything about it seemed wrong. She

Found it lying in the road, just

Glinting in the moonlight. Odd

How she would happen upon it, seeing

It before anyone else. It

Just sat there on the gutter, sort of,

Kind of hidden under some leaves. It

Laid as if it had always been there, a silver

Metal bracelet with a charm. There was

No one around on this lonely street. No

Other here to claim it. She

Picked it up and examined the charm. Very

Quietly she read from the charm: Natalie. She

Remembered a Natalie from not too long ago. A

Sarden County student on her way home. She was

Taken, stolen right off the street by a hooded man. The

Unsuspecting little teen never saw it coming, a

Victim of a cruel twist of fate. There

Was a search for Natalie, her

Xeroxed picture plastered everywhere, but has

Yielded no sightings to this day. Reaching the

Zenith of her memories, the woman set down the bracelet

once again and continued on her way home.
