“Hey, Chuck, I’m sure we can find some wire cutters in my granddad’s tool shed. We only need the wire cutters, a candle, and two hairpins, If we hurry I think we can get back in time to win this scavanger hunt. Twenty bucks to the winner.”
Chuck and Cherry made a quick dash to the shed, opened the door, and gasped with surprise. There was a four year old girl bound and gagged sitting in the corner.
Then they remembered hearing an Amber Alert on the radio as they drove over.
“Maybe we were directed here for this very need.”
“Whatever! I’m glad we found her.”
