It wasn't even that late at night but it was night. My wife and I had been shopping and were chuckling about something as we worked our way through the parking structure. My breath quickened as I noticed the three men in hooded sweatshirts stalking around in the shadows. I pulled her close to me but knew that it was hopeless. They circled around us and closed in, I just kept repeating " We have a kid just don't hurt us!"
One of them snickered. "Oh no, you ain't getting out of this alive!" Doom of dread washed over me, I felt the blood drain from my feet and a ball a phlegm lodge itself in my throat. This wasn't just about robbery, for them it was playtime.
