In plain sight.

© 2015, Barbara W. Beacham

He thought he found the perfect hiding spot. No one would ever discover his trophies or mission, people tend to overlook things hidden in plain sight. He might have to eventually move them, but for now this would have to do. Tonight was going to be a good night, he could feel the buzz all over. It would be perfect no mistakes, his tenth trophy would not be tainted.


He was a beauty, dark haired and doe eyed. A picture of innocence encapsulated in flawless flesh. He had to keep him that way else the world would ruin him. They had enjoyed a home cooked meal together before the little one slept. Now it was time to join the rest. Knowing he had saved another seven-year-old boy from a world filled with abuse made his heart swell with pride. It compensated for the lousy security job at the mall. At this rate he might need a bigger freezer.
