Guy and Dan

The house is quiet and light from the computer flickers on Guys face. He is busy talking to his friends. Talking about how the football team is doing, what is happening at school. How parents are so inconsiderate and never let you do what you want.  Finally getting round to who is meeting who this Saturday night!

Guy is really excited he will be meeting his new friend Dan. He has been talking to him for weeks. He has got to know Dan really well, where Dan lives, how old he is,which school he goes to what he looks like. He thinks he knows him really well.

Yes they are going to meet at MacDonald’s then after they have had something to eat and drink  he is taking Dan back to meet his friends. They will not be coming back here to Guy’s house that is not convenient  but his friend Charlie has a sound proof basement with a separate entrance from  the house …very private. That is when the party starts, when the fun begins.

Oh! yes Saturday is going to be a good night, well deserved after all these weeks of chatting  and coaxing information out of Dan. ……. suddenly the door opens and Guy clicks the screen saver up! “Dad” shouts Jimmy from the door, “Mum says dinner is ready.”  Closing down the computer Guy gets up and scooping a happy squealing Jimmy up into his arms he say “right son lets go eat.

The story above is to highlight “Internet Grooming  ” Young children, boys and girls groomed by adults pretending to be their age and their friends. Lure them in to sex situations that they cannot handle. Some even are murdered ….. it is a dangerous form of abuse  and needs to be highlight and somehow , finished.  The photo is just one off of the internet and the person in has nothing to do with grooming. Thank you again for reading the short story is in aid of Child Abuse Awareness Month.

    Awful!!! It reminds me of cyberbullying. At my school, this girl’s mom pretended to be a guy and drove this other girl to commit suicide. It’s scary what people can do on the internet.

    Hey Willowdot21, I didn’t know it is Child Abuse Awareness Month. I had no idea.

    You laid the picture well, very well. It is just like that – seems so innocent, standard. It is deeply, deeply troubling. You write well, WD21, I could picture it.

    I realize this photo has nothing to do with your written words in this post–but I do appreciate the reminder that many of these “child groomers” are white collar, suburban, professional, well-educated fathers and husbands! After all, we are told the AntiChrist will be amazingly handsome and quite polished and charming!

      That is the reason I used the photo these people are not always grubby unkempt slobs! I just feel it needs to be said, I have really found this month so desperately painful. I have had to learn some awful awful things about humans things I never never wanted to know. Thank God for you and the rest of our crew on the Critterly Journal! xxx
