A Botched Kidnapping?
My true scary story happened years ago. I was only 8 at the time. It is possible that it really was nothing. My mom and dad say it was nothing, but I am not so sure.
I was with my parents in a grocery store. I went and looked at the toys while they gathered groceries. I was looking at the candy when a man offered to buy me some. I politely said “no thank you.” I was told not to accept candy from strangers.
Then while my parents were checking out I was looking at the gumball machines and the riding horse. I went back to my parents as they were finishing up. I took my dad’s hand and started to leave out the door.
Then I hear my dad’s voice call my name. I turned around and saw my dad coming. I had took the hand of that same stranger who wanted to buy me the candy. He apologized to my father and they just laughed at this man’s “mistake.”
I would have just walked out and left with this man if my dad was just a few seconds late in noticing I was gone. My parents say it was just a mistake and he probably thought i was just one of his kids.
As we left, I saw the guy into a white van with no windows. He did not have any children with him in the store. I still get the feeling that this guy was up to no good back then, but everyone else says I am just being paranoid.
