If a girl finds herself kidnapped what should she do? Should she lay there and stay quiet?
Should she do as they say or shout out for help?
I’m scared. It’s all dark in here. Where am I? I want to yell but what if…what if they have guns. Then again maybe I’m all alone in here. Maybe they will be back soon and now is my only chance to escape. Aaah, my wrists. Feels like rope, not too silky it’s giving me splinters I think. If …I…..ouch. too tight my hands are going cold and numb. What’s that? I hear them. They are out there. Sounds like male. More than one. Maybe 2 or 3. Can’t tell. They are laughing. What is so funny? I’m about to die and they are laughing about it. Who are these sicko’s. I’m scared. Lord protect me. What if they rape me? Worse keep me alive and turn me into a sex slave. I think I’d rather die. Are these my only choices Lord? Help me; Help me Lord dang it help me. I am desperate. Where are you!
Ey man, lets check on this girl. Make sure she’s didn’t escape. Ha ha.
Good ideas. She’s kind of scrawny.
who cares? A girl is a girl. That’s all they said man. Get us a girl. Well we got yours a girl.
That’s right. Check on her man.
All right man, shut up. I’m checking on her.
here they come. Oh God save me now. Don’t let them beat me. Please Lord please lord. (Door opens)
mmm. I’m in the closet. Dang it I should have stood up I could have escaped when they were gone. Maybe they will leave again.
What’s your name little girl? I said what’s your name!!
I try to talk but can’t. nothing is coming out. My name is Brianna. It’s Brianna. Why can’t I talk. I am too scared. I have a voice. Where is it?
kicks her in leg. “ I said what’s your name little girl”
“hh hum, Buh Brianna.” My eyes are too blurry. Dang it don’t cry. They will know you are scared. Can’t make out the face through the tears. I try to wipe them on my shoulder. Mmm.
How old are you?
fourteen, please don’t hurt me. I won’t tell anyone, just let me go. Please I can pay you, anything you want, my dad has money just let me go. Whatever they are paying you I am sure I can give you more. Please just let me call my dad.
shut up! (slams door)
great now I am really sobbing. I can’t believe this is happening to me. Lord please, what did I do to deserve this? Why aren’t you helping me? I am screaming on the inside. I am so angry. Why aren’t you helping me!!!!!!!!!
Okay Brianna calm down, Your in a closet. Think, think…..okay orange couch. Ugly orange, filthy ugly orange couch and dirty green curtains. Uuh, this house hasn’t been touched since the 70’s. Gross. No wonder they are so mad. Okay orange couch, green curtains. White male. 2 white males. One skinny, one unknown white male. Don’t forget Brianna. Stay strong remember details. Maybe they will leave again. I know God did. He’s never around when I need him. Only when I don’t and he’s being forced down my throat by my parents. Oh I am sorry Lord. I don’t mean that. I just feel…so scared and alone right now. I am so scared. I am so in need of your protection right now.
Help me lord to stay strong. I know you are there Lord. I know you love me. Help me find a way out.
Brianna’s prayer- Lord, I know you are with me right now. I know that you love me and that you listen to my prayers. I am asking Lord that you send your angels to protect me now and help me find a way out Lord. I know I am not the Christian I should be at school and I promise to try harder if I am only given a chance Lord. Please hear my prayer Lord I know you are out there listening.
(banging on the door)
Open up. Open up right now! (cops)
#2 It’s the cops. Oh shoot.
#1 how’d they find us. Shoot go go go out the back door. Hurry.
#2 come on man come on.
Cops- Your house is surrounded, come out with your hands up.
Brianna- Thank you Lord, I knew you were listening. (sobbing) I love you jesus. Thank you. “I’m in here, help me, hello! I’m in here.
Cop- Is your name Brianna?
Brianna “yes, it sure is.”
Cop “you’re okay now. Some classmates saw what happened to you after school. They were able to call us right away and luckily we were able to trace the vehicle back to this residence. You got lucky kid. You must have angels watching out for you.
Brianna “better I have God”
Epilogue- There will be times in your life, several times when you may have felt like God has abandoned you but like Brianna did, it is so important that we do not give up on God because he is always there for you. You may not see him but he is there in your heart, your mind and your spirit. As children God tells us “See I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.” Rev 3:8. How important is it then that we turn to God instead of blaming him for our trials. There is a battle going on much bigger than knock off purses and name brand shoes. It is a spiritual battle. So what side of the war are you going to find yourself on.
….In a twinkling of an eye……
