A New Life
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

We have been on the road for the better part of 2 days. My 5 year old son Ronny and I were on our way to a new town, a new job for me and a new start in life. Our lives have changed because my ex-husband asked for a divorce so he could marry Jan, his secretary. I can remember being in shock when he told me. I guess I should have been a aware of something going on, but I wasn't. Just not looking for anything wrong. Ronny was so sad. "Daddy won't live with us anymore will he mom." Why". I don't know why Daddy is leaving us, but he is, Ronny.

After the divorce, and the property division, I got a job in a town about 400 miles away. I was going to work in the town bank. Ronny and I were looking forward to living in Riverdale in a new house. The house was not big but it was good size for the two of us. I had taken a virtual tour on the computer and it looked just right for us and the price was right. I didn't have much time before I had to start working, and Ronny had school too.

We pulled in to a little diner in Riverdale and called the realtor so we could sign the papers and she would lead us to the house. We ordered some burgers and the realtor came in. We waved her over and introduced ourselves. My name is Sue Hutson I said, and she said her name was Peggy Parker.. We finished our food and signed the final papers for the house and Peggy gave us the keys.

We follower Peggy to our house and we were pleased when we saw it. It had a nice yard too. It was all fenced in with a gate. It was so cute.

We spent a lot of time moving in and working and going to school, We were really busy for a while ,but it was great. Soon it had been a year and we had settled in good. I got a promotion at work. I was now Operations Officer of the Riverdale Bank. Wow. I felt great and so things went for the next few months. Good. I could use the money for Ronny's new clothes for school and the car needs new tires.

Rusty called us the other day asking to get back together or can he have a loan. He is out of money and his girl friend left him. He needs help, he has no job. I did not help him and told him not to call us anymore.

Things were going along great. I was real happy with everything. We decided to order a pizza and watch a movie. We had a great time but it was time for bed. There was work and school tomorrow. I had been asleep about 2 hours when I heard something or someone in the house. I didn't turn on the lights I had my flash kite and some pepper spray so I was going to check on Ronny . I looked in and he was asleep so as I shut the door someone hit me on the back of my head and I was out.

When I woke up Ronny was crying and we were both tied up. When I looked around to see what happened, there was Rusty and another guy I didn't know. I asked Rusty" why are you doing this to us?" I need money and you are going to get it for us" ". How am I supposed to do that?" I asked. "well you work in the Bank don't you" "You will get it from the Bank" "How am I supposed to do that" I asked. We are going to go to the bank and we will take it from the vault. "We will leave Ronny with my friend here, so you will not get any funny ideas." "Rusty, that's your son." "So what if he is"? "I need money".

They had guns so I had to do this I guess. I kissed Ronny goodbye and Rusty and I got in the car to go to the Bank. I was shaking all over. We are going to the Bank and my head is spinning trying to think of what I should do.

When we got to the Bank There was two tellers and one personal banker there. They greeted us and we went to my office. I sat down to look like we had business. "The vault is open", I say." Great" Rusty says lets get the money then". I pushed the panic button on the inside of my desk. "Ok" I said. we went inside the vault and Rusty was stuffing cash into bags. The bank doors flew open and the Cops rushed in. "Down on the floor" "Down on your belly" they yelled. I ran to the one Sargent and told him that Rusty's friend was at my house, holding Ronny hostage. They called some other officers and in no time Ronny was free, and with me. It was all over and we were fine.

See you next time?
