At the store, the police officer was very transparent with Klynn and told her that he was there for her and her siblings. That his duty was to protect her and assure she is not harmed. They could trust and depend on him.
The officer’s words eased Klynn and especially at night time when she would feel cold and alone, she could hear his comforting voice, assuring her that everything, eventually, was going to be ok.
They Watched Her From a Distance
Instead of approaching her straight forward there and then, the officer began studying her behavior, watching her going in and out of her house, and followed her when she popped into the convenience store.
He was concerned. He was alerted by this dysfunctioning family, and by Klynn in particular. Something was going on behind those house walls and he was about to find out what.
He Who Had No Name
The police officer, who at this stage will remain nameless, began patroling Klynn's house on a daily basis. Little did he know, that he would eventually become a light tower in that little girl's world and a hero in our eyes. He had no idea what a great impact he had and what a significant mark he left in her life.
His instincts led him to Klynn and her brothers' home every single day. As the neighborhood was so dangerous, he had to make sure they were safe and secured.
There Was Light
It wouldn't take too long before the officer's words would become true, and in the end, things did turn out to be ok. This proved to Klynn that there was still good in this world and not everything was gloomy and dark.
Within no time, Klynn grew close to her new officer friend and would wait for him by the window every single day. One morning, as the police officer was approaching her house, ready to say his hellos, he realized she wasn't there. He knew something was wrong.
If Only Things Were Different
If Klynn would have lived in a quiet neighborhood, no one would have been so concerned, however, the situation was more complicated. Anything could have happened to her. It was unsafe for her to walk the streets and not having her parents around made it worse.
Why wasn't Klynn waiting for the police officer like every morning? What could have happened to her? He couldn't just drive by so he stopped his car and approached the house. What he discovered, left him devastated.
