“I’m here to help you.”

“What can you do?”

“Get you off these streets.”

“My friend wouldn’t like that.  It would cause trouble for you.”

“I’m used to trouble.  What’s your name?”


“My name is Myra.  Would you please let me help you?”

“Why would you want to do that?”

“I was where you are a long time ago.  I promised if I got out, I would help other women.”

“Oh, so you’re one of those” Kitty said rolling her eyes.

Myra smiled.  “Yes, I’m one of those.”

“Okay, I’ll come but I hope you know what you’re doing.”

I like this. I hope those that do get out really do come back to help others. Such a sincere wish.~Ames

I agree with Ames - those that are in the best place to help are those that have been there.
