Patricia told her mom she’d like to run the Boston marathon, mother wasn’t sure Pat was trained enough, even though she qualified for the marathon.
Mom was one of those people who’d never think of discouraging her kid.
Mother and daughter reached Boston two days before the marathon, Patricia was confident she’d be able to do well.
On the day of the marathon she received a very discouraging letter, it was from her best friend Tracy, she wrote, it was a very difficult course, she doubts Pat will be able to complete it.
Patricia read the letter several times, she could not believe Tracy would discourage her, she tried to ignore the contents of the letter, she started the run , she’d reached halfway, when she felt terrible cramps, she began to limp, finally a gust of wind blew her off course she fell down, she did not have enough strength to continue!
Lucy and her friend Tracy went for a walk one afternoon,on their way they saw a building, which seemed empty, they quietly walked over to see what was inside.
When they stepped in front of the door, they heard someone saying,”please can someone help me, I want to go home?”
Lucy instantly made a move to go in, Tracy held her back, she said, “No Lucy this might be a trap, let us go back!”
At first Lucy was reluctant to listen to her friend, Tracy related the story of her cousin who went for a walk and disappeared this news unnerved her and she decided against going in.
The two friends decided to go to the shopping mall, Tracy wanted to buy a few things, in the mall they met Melanie, who came running to tell them something, she was breathless the words Tracy, Lucy was barely audible, She told them about some building where the police had gone to investigate after pedestrians nearby alerted them about someone crying for help, no one lives in the building, the parents all over the town are cautioning their children not to go near it, Tracy and Lucy looked at each other and realized it sounds like the same place, they breathed a sigh of relief for not going in!
