Have you ever really wanted to help somebody and kept running into closed doors or brick walls? That's what's happening to Kennedy in today's Christian Fiction Friday excerpt. I'm including four paragraphs from page 27, since this is February 27 and the fourth Friday of the month.
"So there’s nothing you can do?” she asked the dispatch operator.
“No.” She wondered if he spoke in a monotone all the time or only when he was on the clock. “And even if we could, there wouldn’t be enough evidence for us to take action at this point.”
Frustration and rage sandwiched Kennedy’s arteries, and she felt her blood pressure escalate with her pulse. “What do you mean there’s no evidence?” Had he been listening to her at all?
“She didn’t accuse anybody, for one thing,” he remarked. “In fact, there’s not even proof at this point that she’s pregnant at all. She could have just wanted some extra attention, create some false sympathy …”
You didn’t hear her voice, Kennedy wanted to scream.
