It was early morning. The sun was nowhere to be seen and it drizzled, so most people stayed inside if they didn’t really have to leave their house.
Jessica was one of the unlucky ones who had to face the bad weather. That what’s you get when you take a dog.
“You better make it quick” she told the golden retriever walking next to her. He pulled her forward and they walked behind the first corner they encountered, into an alley. The retriever did his thing and Jessica cleaned it up. She was lucky, there was a garbage container. Jessica wanted to walk out of the alley. She didn’t feel safe; too many scary movies. But when she pulled the strap the dog braced.
“Max, come on, I want to go” Jessica insisted. Max pulled the strap and Jessica was forced to follow him. He stopped a few yards further, sniffing at the garbage bags that were lying there.
“Max, what is there?” Jessica asked. Max barked, letting Jessica know he found something. Jessica walked towards the dog to see what it was that made him so excited.
She wished she hadn’t.
A young girl, with long dark blond hair was lying between the bags. Her blonde hair was mixed with blood and her head was bashed in.
Jessica let go of the strap and vomited. Then she ran away. Max barked one last time before going after his owner.
