Recurring Dreams

She was eight years old. Her parents decided to adopt a teenaged boy, and she had an older sister. All was right in the world until one dreadful night. The family decided to go to their local Dairy Queen. The adopted son didn’t want to go, so he stayed home. She got her normal food. Tacos, french fries, and ice cream for dessert. After dinner they decided to call it a night and headed home. They couldn’t find their son anywhere. He wasn’t in his room, not in the living room or in the back yard. He was missing. Then they found him. He was stuffed in the hot water heater closet with rope burn around his neck. The cops came and took his lifeless body to the morgue where they determined he was murdered. The family was never the same again.
