An uneasy feeling demanding recognition.
"Missing (150 words)" by DALLAS01

Hal reached across Pam to silence the alarm. Had he even slept? Everything was a blur. He swung his legs over the side of the bed and tried to shake off the feeling of revulsion that put him to bed at 3: am. He couldn't figure out if it was attached to Jay Brook's disappearance, or his wife's stone-cold response to it. He knew she didn't care for the kid, or his buddies for that matter. But for Christ sake, he was the third kid to show up missing in Mill Acres that week.

The cops had been relentless in their investigation as they combed the neighborhood for clues. It struck Hal odd that they had been called into the station twice for questioning. Yesterday's grilling kept reverberating in his nagging anxiety.

"Mrs Andrews. Can you explain again, just how Jay's ball and glove found its way inside your garage?"
