I schedule the challenge to go out around 6.30 am UK time, but pingbacks have to be approved manually so might not show immediately. This could be because I’m late accessing my blog or due to time differences, but I will get there, I promise!

**********Kimberley’s Point of View using the 100 word Friday Fictioneers Photo Prompt**********
Kimberley loved to bake and since she was feeling a little sorry for how rough things had been for Cassie these last few months, she decided to bake her favorite cookies. She knew her little brothers and sister would love them as well.
She realized it was getting late and she had to hurry up and get the kids ready for bed. She was mixing the icing when she heard her phone ring.
She glanced at the screen and saw a text as well. Kimberley, PLEASE take my call it read.
Peter? What in the world did the creep want?
**********Peter’s Point of View**********
“Kimberley, please don’t hang up, please, it’s important.”
“What do you want Peter. I am busy right now.”
“Look, I know you don’t like me and that’s fine, but I think Cassie is in trouble.”
“What do you mean in trouble? How?”
“You may not believe it, but I am still in love with Cassie. Things haven’t been the same without her and well I have been following her hoping to get to talk to her and well tonight I was sitting outside the restaurant waiting for her to come out and for the courage to speak to her, when an old gray van backed into the slot next to her car. You know it is kind of dark in the employee’s parking lot. I watched her come out and head towards her car. A guy got out of the van and she sort of hesitated and then continued walking towards him. Two guys got out of the van and walked behind her and she kind of leaned in like she was going to kiss him, but she sort of fell into him and they shoved her into the van. I swear to God!”
“What are you trying to say Peter? This isn’t funny!”
“I am not trying to be funny. I was just trying to tell the police what I saw and they said they can’t do anything until she is officially listed as missing and teenagers go off on their own all the time. There are a lot of temptations out there. I tried to tell them Cassie wasn’t like that, but they wouldn’t listen to me. I was trying to follow them and had a car in-between so they wouldn’t know I was chasing them and I didn’t see the car in front of me stop suddenly and I lost track of the van when I crashed into the back of the car. I have a rough idea where they were only.”
“Peter are you serious? Please tell me you are not serious. She should have been home about 5 minutes ago. She always lets us know if she’s going to be late or spend the night with a friend.”
“I am dead serious. I love her, I always have. I even got a real job now and work full time at the local department store stocking and doing deliveries and now it is a good thing since I will have to get a new truck since I am sure this one is totaled. Look my mom is about to pick me up, but you have to let your mom know if Cassie doesn’t come home and report her missing immediately. Get the ball rolling on this one now. I am worried.”
“Oh God, Peter, this can’t be happening. Did you get a look at the guys?”
“Not a good one. The first guy was bald. I could see that. The other two looked really rough and bad news.”
“Bald? Oh no! That sounds like Wayne. That was the guy she was supposed to go on a date with and then she chickened out last night. Oh my God, you think he kidnapped her for that? She was really beginning to think he was bad news and backed out of the date at the last moment. What am I going to tell my Mom?”
“Tell her what I told you and tell the police. I will go over the story with them again if you need me to. I would do anything for Cassie. I love her, Kimberley, I really do.”
