He watched from a distance as she played.
Running through the park, chasing something from her imagination, he'd never seen her so happy. It was the day of her sixth birthday. Her long red hair and blue eyes along with her bright purple party dress caught the eyes of many visiting the park that day.
He'd been watching her for weeks, he knew that today was the day. Should he go back without the girl, he'd surely be punished. With them was where she was meant to be.
The girl wandered farther away from the crowd, dancing and spinning to music that only she could hear. The family was completely unaware, still preparing food on their picnic table. The girl's mother carefully placed six candles into the brightly frosted cake.
They were distracted and he knew that it was time. She kneeled beside a tree picking clovers from the ground, out of sight of everyone. No one even even glanced in their direction.
In only a second he was beside her. She didn't know what was happening until it was too late. He knew it was what he had to do.
So he took her.
