There was a 10 year old boy abducted in my area a few days ago. Luckily today he was found and he was ok and the kidnappers have been arrested. It generally scares the life out of me when things like this happen anywhere, nevermind in my town! So anyway, my 16, almost 17 year old brother went to his girlfriends tonight an she lives pretty far. It takes 3 hours to walk to her house. My mom usually expects him in for 11 latest. But, she worries about him a lot because he's not very streetwise. He only recently started going out and although he's only 4 years younger than me I worry a lot too. Round here is full of wonnabee thugs, I don't feel as intimidated because I went to school with most of the idiots. It got to around half 11 and my mom was calling him, he switched his phone off! Knowing no buses were running anymore she started to panic about him walking home. He turned his phone on and text me at midnight saying "Tell mom to stop worrying, I'm at Beckys". I started ringing his phone, because yeah fair enough he was at his girlfriends and he was safe. But, how the hell was he getting home?! He switched it off, again! So we've sat here until now. Watching out the window just waiting for him to come home. Not knowing where his girlfriend lives, we couldn't exactly drive there. He strolls in 5 mins ago (quarter to 1) like it was nothing! Not understanding what we were worrying over Thank God! His girlfriends dad dropped him home. But he could of at least told us this! Rather than sitting up worrying about him. I'm so annoyed Don't know if I'm over reacting, but I guess it just really shows. You never stop worrying!
