Shaken By Touch
The young girl was screaming her lungs out. “Let me go! Let me go!” She tugged at her jacket. She scratched at the officer, her hair dry and flying away in the wind. She looked like an angry feral cat.
“Please Ma’am, stop resisting, I’m trying to help you.” The officer wasn’t going to give up so easily. She had a feeling, and usually she was right about things like this.
Just The Two Of Us
Mila and Michael were a young couple living in the small town of Gifford, Florida. They had been together for several years and were deeply in love.
Mila has been obsessed with Michael since high school. She would do anything for him. They were together a long time and they wanted to do things on their own, they didn’t rely on their parents.
Work For A Living
Mila was a 26-year-old woman with a warm smile and a kind heart. She worked at a local café and often took double shifts just to make ends meet.
A few people knew her in her local community but she was generally alone. Every day, she would walk to work, crossing the bustling highway that ran through their town.
Somebody Is Watching You
Mila was moody. “I can’t wait until I can stop doing this, she said to Michael one morning as she got ready for work.” Michael just smiled at her and said “Soon, love, things will be better,” and passed her apron.
The tired woman left on her daily route. It was a hot, summer day. Unbeknownst to Mila, her routine had caught the attention of Officer Parkins, a diligent traffic police officer.
An Eye On You
Officer Parkins was a well-respected official in the area. She had been in the force for over twenty years. She thought she knew her district well and often chatted to people in public to make her presence and authority known.
When she first saw Mila, her first thought was how strong she was to walk while pregnant. She was genuinely empathetic towards her, being a mother herself.
The Same Every Day
Mila always took the same route, she had to walk along a busy road. Other cars often hooted at her or offered to give her a ride. But she never accepted.
She had noticed Mila’s consistent presence on the road, which had become a hazard for other drivers. Officer Parkins was curious and started to pay closer attention to the young woman.
You Seem Suspicious
Mila didn’t do anything unusual, so technically, Officer Parkins had no reason to approach her. But she wanted to talk to her. She wanted to know more about the women’s life, who her parents were.
Why didn’t she use public transport? She told her partner about the woman and he also found her intriguing. Where was she from?
Something Is Not Right
As weeks turned into months, Officer Parkins began to suspect that something was amiss. Mila seemed to be pregnant for an unusually long time, and Officer Parkins couldn’t shake off the feeling that there was more to this story.
Determined to get to the bottom of it, she decided to approach Mila one day as she walked back from work. Would she find the answers she was looking for?
Seize The Moment
One morning, Officer Parkins saw the perfect opportunity. It was windy, and Mila’s jacket had flown away. Officer Parkins, standing nearby, quickly caught it and returned it to the girl.
“Thank you,” the girl muttered and turned around. “You gotta be careful in your condition hey,” Officer Parkins said. The girl stopped and officer Parkin’s had a chance to face her.
Officer Parkins and her partner gently approached Mila and asked her a few questions about her due date. “When are you due? You’ve been pregnant for a long time now? Is everything okay with your baby?”
The girl pulled her jacket closed and put her hand over her belly. She looked down at the floor, “Yes, I’m late for work,” she said, she was getting intimidated. She didn’t like confrontation.
That Was Close
Confused and taken aback, Mila tried to gather her thoughts but found herself hurrying away, unable to provide satisfactory answers.
She was almost running, she struggled to catch her breath. Her mind was filled with questions. Cops? There? She had never seen them so early; how could she be so blind. She knew that she looked nervous but hoped that they didn’t notice anything strange about her.
A Step Ahead
The next day, Officer Parkins and her partner decided to wait for Mila at her usual spot. “Do you think she will still walk this way after what happened yesterday?” Her partner Officer Bradley asked her.
Officer Parkin’s was weary, “They are not that bright, our youth of today, she probably forgot by now,” Parkins said. “Hey, I think you will find out sooner than you think,” he laughed and pointed.
Right On Time
Just as she had suspected the girl did use her usual route But she thought she would be clever by crossing over to the other side. She didn’t see officers standing behind a tree across the road.
They had to cut her off. Officer Bradley ran to the front to stop her. As Mila crossed the highway, the officers confronted her again.
Check It Out
“Madam, you shouldn’t be walking on a busy road like this in your state, we’ve been watching you for over ten months now,” Parkin’s said. “Okay, I won’t walk here anymore,” the young girl nervously said.
Mila, feeling anxious and cornered, blurted out that she was trying to induce labor because she was overdue. “This baby just won’t come out, hey! He’s a big one!” She laughed nervously. However, the officers remained skeptical, sensing that there was more to her story.
Out Of Place
“I think it’s strange that you haven’t given birth yet, my partner and I check this route daily, and we noticed you walking alone.” Mila tried to walk, but Bradley stood in front of her, “Would you like us to assist you madam?”
Their suspicions heightened, Officer Parkins and her partner insisted on searching Mila. Fearful of the consequences, Mila refused, desperately hoping to escape the situation.
Don’t Mind Me
Mila made excuses. “Officer, look, it’s raining out, lemme just get home to my husband.” Mila begged the officer. In her panic, she tried to run away, tripped over the pavement and lost her footing, she almost fell down.
Officer Parkins, being a compassionate person, didn’t want to risk harming a potentially pregnant woman. She reached out and grabbed Mila by her jacket, hoping to prevent her from falling.
As she grabbed her jacket, she exposed a bit of her pregnant belly. Mila tried to readjust her clothing from the near fall. She was rushing and holding her belly nervously.
Parkins realized that Mila was unusually light and agile for a pregnant woman. Could it be that she was just really fit and balanced? Or was there something else to it?
Full Of Excuses
The clouds moved in. “I hate the rain, it always messes up everything,” Mila said, trying to get away. “You’re just a ray of sunshine aren’t you,” Parkins said as she watched the nervous lady.
“Take care of yourself Miss,” Officer Parkin’s said. She patted the lady’s jacket in a friendly gesture but was in shock. As she tugged on Mila’s jacket, she felt something strange.
Something Is Loose
Mila knew that something was wrong, she held her belly. Parkins saw something move under her clothes. “Oh no!” Mila mumbled under her breath. She had to bend her legs and tried to waddle away from the officers.
In a split-second decision, not wanting to cause harm, she let go, and Mila’s stomach fell down, revealing a fake pregnancy belly. The scene that unfolded left everyone around in utter disbelief. Something else fell out of the belly.
Mila’s heart raced as she darted down the street, her adrenaline fueling her desperate attempt to escape the clutches of Officer Parkins. Fear gripped her chest, overshadowing the chaos that had erupted around them.
The once peaceful streets of Gifford now buzzed with gasps, murmurs, and the clicking of cell phone cameras capturing the shocking scene.
Officer Parkins, determined not to let Mila slip through her fingers, pursued her with unwavering determination. Her training kicked in as she sprinted after the fleeing woman, her eyes locked on Mila’s retreating figure.
With each stride, Officer Parkins closed the gap between them, her voice ringing out with authority. “Mila, stop! It’s over. There’s nowhere left to run!”
Stuck In A Corner
Mila’s breath came in ragged gasps as she weaved through the labyrinthine alleys, her mind racing for an escape route. Panic and desperation fueled her actions, blinding her to the consequences of her choices. She darted around a corner, hoping to lose Officer Parkins in the maze of buildings that surrounded them.
But Officer Parkins was relentless. She refused to let Mila vanish into the darkness of the night. She knew that capturing her was not only a duty but also a responsibility to the safety of her community. She summoned every ounce of strength, pushing herself to her limits, closing in on her target.
Nowhere To Hide
Mila’s footsteps faltered as fatigue took hold, her legs burning from exertion. The weight of her actions pressed heavily upon her, and she realized that escape was futile. A sense of defeat washed over her as she skidded to a stop, her chest heaving, her eyes locked on Officer Parkins approaching with an air of triumph.
“I told you, Mila,” Officer Parkins panted, her voice laced with both exhaustion and determination. “There’s no running from the truth.”
It’s All Over Now
Mila’s gaze dropped to the ground, shame and regret etched across her face. The once confident facade crumbled, revealing a vulnerable woman burdened by the weight of her choices.
In that moment, the reality of her actions came crashing down, and she knew there was no turning back. She had to face the officer; she had no other choice.
You Can Talk To Me
Officer Parkins slowly approached Mila, her gaze filled with a mix of empathy and disappointment. She knew the confrontation had taken an unexpected turn, revealing a far more complex story than she had anticipated. With a steady hand, she reached out to Mila, offering solace amidst the chaos.
“Mila, I don’t condone what you’ve done,” Officer Parkins began, her voice softer now, tinged with compassion. “But I want to understand. I want to know why.
A Human Story
Tears welled in Mila’s eyes as she looked up at the officer, her voice quivering with a mixture of guilt and remorse. “I didn’t want this life, Officer Parkins. I was desperate, trapped, and I thought this was my only way out. I never wanted to hurt anyone.”
Officer Parkins listened, her eyes locked on Mila’s face, recognizing the pain and desperation that lay within her words. She had seen people driven to extreme measures by circumstances beyond their control, and Mila was no exception.
Let You Off Easy
“Mila, you made a grave mistake,” Officer Parkins replied gently, her grip on Mila’s arm loosening. “But there’s still a chance for redemption. Let justice take its course, and let us help you find a way to rebuild your life.”
The weight of Officer Parkins’ words sank deep into Mila’s heart. She knew she had to face the consequences of her actions, but perhaps this was an opportunity for her to break free from the cycle that had ensnared her.
When Parkins had saved Mila from falling, she had unhinged something important. Amidst the commotion, the fake pregnancy belly had opened up, and what fell out was not a baby but packets of cocaine!
$2000 worth of the illegal substance scattered across the street. Civilians who had witnessed the unfolding events quickly took out their phones, capturing videos and snapping pictures, their curiosity getting the better of them.
Mila’s true identity had been exposed, and her secret life as a drug trafficker was unveiled. The shockwaves reverberated through the town, leaving its residents stunned. Officer Parkins wasted no time in handcuffing Mila, ensuring that she faced the consequences of her actions.
News of the incident spread like wildfire, reaching the local police station and making headlines in the local newspapers. Mila’s arrest became the talk of the town, leaving the community in disbelief and prompting discussions about hidden secrets and the unforeseen depths people could descend to.
A Secret Cover
As the legal process unfolded, Mila’s true motives and the extent of her involvement in the drug trade were brought to light. She was given a sentence but she had a great female lawyer who offered to help her pro bono. She was a shark in circumstances such as these. The case became a symbol of how appearances can be deceiving and how even those closest to us may harbor unimaginable secrets.
Michael, devastated and blindsided by the revelation, grappled with his emotions. He couldn’t fathom that the woman he loved had led a double life. The town rallied around him, offering support and solace during this tumultuous time. But Officer Parkins knew that he was just a coward, a small-time gangster, letting his wife take the wrap for his illegal business.
