Now, as Marge stood in the principal's office crying and begging the police to help her, Kaitlyn knew something serious had happened. Curious, Kaitlyn walked in the office.
"Marge what's wrong? Is everything okay?"
"Tom's missing. He never came home last night."
Kaitlyn's dream rushed back, pleading to be heard but Kaitlyn put it aside again, afraid of the truth.
A rude cop spoke up first. "Young lady we can handle this, why don't you just scoot along to your next class?"
Marge ignored the cop and continued to speak to Kaitlyn. "He was supposed to drive up the mountain to Cloudy City to drop off some food I had made for old Mrs. Garrison. When he never came home last night I assumed he stayed the night at her house, but when I called her this morning, Mrs. Garrison said Tom left early last night."
Kaitlyn's legs became mush and she nearly toppled over, realizing every bit of her dream could very well be true. Knowing every square inch of that mountain road because of her fathers' weekly jaunts to the junkyard, she spoke out with honest certainty. "I believe I know where he is."
By now the cops had had enough of Kaitlyn's meddling. "Young lady we are handling the situation."
"Yes but if you'd just listen..."
"Miss Jones," the principal said. "I'm sure the news of Toms' disappearance is a little hard to swallow but you're just going to have to go to class...."
"But Principal Sweeney..."
"No buts, Kaitlyn, the police have already sent a car up the road and back again and they saw nothing of Tom or his car."
"Have you checked just off the road on Highway Ninety? Where the sharp turns are? Because I had this really vivid dream and..."
"A dream?" One of the officers almost laughed.
Kaitlyn tried to explain, but the cops and even the principal smiled.
"Look Kaitlyn," the cop said. "I'm sure you may have thought you dreamed something but this is real life."
The cops had just asked Mrs. McKinney if there had been any arguments between her and her son. Their questions did nothing to ease her worries or lead her to believe they were ever going to find her son. They decided she was a distraught mother who didn’t know anything and they treated her as such. So when Kaitlyn spoke so certainly about finding Tom, Mrs. McKinney had to hear her story.
"Please, Kaitlyn, tell me what you dreamed." Mrs. McKinney suggested.
The principal spoke up. "Mrs. McKinney, I'm sure you are upset about your son being missing but some young girls pranks won't help us find him any quicker."
"Kaitlyn, you said it was off of Highway Ninety? Would you be able to show us where?" Mrs. McKinney said.
"Marge, are you really going to listen to this girls ranting about some dream?" the principal asked.
"I apologize for intruding," Kaitlyn said fast. "But I did have a dream about this, and it very well could be false. But if it is true and I do know where to find Tom, don't you think it would be important to find out for sure before he bleeds to death from the wound on his head?"
The cops were stunned as Mrs. McKinney spoke up. "He has a wound on his head?"
"In my dream as we went over the cliff and landed in the bushes, he had hit his head on the steering wheel and was knocked unconscious."
Marge stood. "Well, then officers, let's stop wasting time and go find my son!"
A Great Action Adventure for the Eternal Romantics
This book grabbed me in the first few pages and helped me to keep "up to speed" - and there is speed - in the story line of this lonely teenage girl to discover herself, the love of her life, face her past and move forward on the path of life. This thriller kept me up all night as I couldn't put it down till I knew what happened next. This book has all the potential of a best seller, and a best seller series! I can't wait till book 2 comes out!
The Anticipation is Killing Me!
I started off reading “Kaitlyn Jones” and was intrigued by the first pages. As I kept reading it kept me interested until the end. Usually you will lose interest in a portion of a book, but not this one! I want the second book to come out as soon as possible because the anticipation is killing me! Buy this book and you will NOT be sorry. You will be thanking Kathleen Shields for writing it!
A gripping Intellegent Read
This first novel grabbed my attention from the first lines and at the end I’m still interested…enough to wait for the second. I enjoyed Ms. Shields style, her grasp of character & development of her people and plot. She writes from the heart with an intensity and knowledge of a young person’s mind processes (all the poignant twists, turns, uncertainties of youth). So if you’re looking for a gripping, intelligent read…pick up “The Creation” and enjoy!
