Yesterday, I got a sms message from a friend;
That night there was a prayer meeting and everyone there knew of this sms and was talking of the incident. More facts were added to the scant knowledge that I had.
But I don't know how to explain to you. I just couldn't belief it. That someone could snatch a child from middle class home and expect such a huge sum to be ready within a few hours.
Was sleeping at around 1135 pm, when the phone rang and my friend calls and tells me that a suspect had been caught and the girl has been sent home. Another suspect is still at large.
Its 6.34 am now, and I still cant believe it. Its as if someone is playing a prank on me, telling such a bad story. Part of me still hopes its a joke because I just don't want a child to suffer out of the greed of an adult. The story also haunts me, as my maid looks after Vina and Walter while we are out, and I don't know what I will do if they were kidnapped.
My feelings go to the family, and I do hope that all will be well.
