8. The Event

Derek coughed a little before beginning. Harry raised his hand and signaled over the attractive girl from before and asked for a jug of coffee, which she brought promptly. Harry made a mental note to tip this girl well, then handed a cup of coffee to Derek to calm his nerves. He than began.

"Well, it was about a week ago, a Thursday. Sally was out playing at her friends house as she usually did. Not much out the ordinary, but it started getting dark. Foggy." Derek paused, took another sip and continued.

"I rang the girls house but she said she had left half an hour ago. Strange I thought, we only lived ten minutes away. So I went out and walked towards Sally's friends house. Now between our house and there's is a forest that stretches for miles all around the town. Sally sometimes used it as a short cut, she liked nature." Derek then smiled, a tear in one eye. He sniffed and continued again.

"It was getting pretty dark out now, and that fog made it hard to see much. But I heard her. I thought I heard her talking to someone. She had an imaginary friend you see, you know how kids are. So I assumed she was playing with him again. I stumbled through the trees, following her voice, following the noise of laughter." Derek stopped, he had gone completely pale.

"Then I saw her, I saw my baby girl, she was just sitting on a log looking up at a tree, talking to it. But something was wrong, I felt sick and dizzy. I could feel someone... Something watching me. I shouted her name, but she didn't hear me, she couldn't hear me. Maybe he was stopping her from hearing me."

"Who was stopping her Derek?" Harry asked, pouring himself a cup of coffee, Francis was taking notes.

"The trees, the thing. I saw it Mr. Cobain. I saw it reach down and grab her, with those long black arms. Like the pictures on your slides in the office. I ran I did, I ran as fast as I could. But he picked her up and took off. He didn't run, he just sort of disappeared and reappeared in another place. Teleportation or something. But I heard her laughing, my Sally was laughing the whole time." Derek began to cry once again, an overweight couple at a table close by looked over to see the commotion. "He took her, and I want my Sally back!"

"Okay Derek, we'll go there and see if we can find anything, but I urge you to contact the police no matter what we find." Harry insisted, he didn't want a replay of the event at Tulsa. 

"Now Derek, which town was this?" Francis interrupted.

"Oh yeah that, we live in a small town called Pine Bluff in Arkansas," Derek responded sheepishly.

"Arkansas?" Blurted out Francis. "That's over one thousand miles away? I don't have the kind of money to be taking planes everywhere!" He then turned to Harry, "you never told me we'd be heading out into the sticks!"

"It's not a problem," Pleaded Derek, "I have a car, I'll happily drive you there, and my house is empty now, there'll be plenty of room for you folks to sleep in."

"Francis, you're here now, it'll just be like old times." Harry was smiling, Francis was not, but eventually he gave in and agreed to travel one thousand three hundred miles to a back water town. A million miles away from the world in which he lived over in Washington. 

So they finished their food, drank their coffee, gave a large tip the attractive waitress with the lovely ass and got in Derek's car. Preparing themselves for the twenty four hour car ride that lay ahead of them. 'Just be like old times', Harry's own words played with him as they left Phoenix, 'hopefully not' he thought.
