Best of luck in the competition Jill.
The whistle woke me. I heard them yell, “Thief!” Tromping feet and furious shouts blasted through the air. Glancing out my window I watched an angry mob gather, threatening sticks raised high. Men held his bloodied body. “Help me!” he begged laying his hands on my husband, Dan.
“Please! Let him go!” Dan pleaded trying to calm the hysteria.
“No! Stay out of it! It is our way. Thieves must be punished.”
They yanked him back into their unforgiving throng and moved en masse down the road. Dan stood helpless, bloodstained handprints smeared across his t-shirt.
