Free ellieĀ 

David and karren parker were a young couple. David was a gradute of an independent baptist college.  He met his wife there. He started a small church in a smal area. They just had a daughter named ellie.

The birth went very well. Mom and baby were released from the hospital. 

One night, a group of people creaped into the smal house. They had cassed the property while the parkers were gone. They knew that they did not have any kind of secuity syistom. They picked the lock. They got inside the house. 

The intruders wore all black. They tip toed to the nursery.  They knew where the bed room was. They went inside.  A short person picked up the baby.they moved out. 

Karen could not sleep. She went into the nursery.  She screamed. Dave ran in to the room.”ellie is gone! “She said. 

David called 911. A police cruser arived within a short time. The officer came in.”we put ellie back in the crib at 1:00 or around them. Then karen came in a short time ago and she was gone. The blankets were disheveled.  “Dave told the officer. 

“How old is the child?” the officer asked. “Four days. “Karren said. A detective arived. Karen and david were questioned separately.  

“David is an ordaned minister with an independent baptsist denomination.  He pastors grace baptist church.  He is 23 years old. Moved hear from new burn north Carolina.  Karen 21 is from sallem orwgon. She moved to new bern then folowed him hear. No criminal records.  No call from the police pryor. ” detective wheeler said. 

They went back to dave. “Dave do you have any enimies?”the detective asked. “Not that i know off. “He said. “You involved in political issues? “Detective horsby asked. “Not really. We dont engage in protests or anything like that. I dont shy awsy from isues that may come up in scripture.  “He said. 

They intervued neighbors.  The neighbors reported that the oarkers were qiet. One neihhbor reported hearing rustling of the trees. A dog barked . 

The police tried to rule out the parkers as suspects. They searched the two cars they owned. They searched the house. They searched under the house and the property. 

The police talked to the hospital staf that delivered the baby. None of the nurses saw any red flags. There were no signs of post pardom dipresson. 

The church members were intervued. They had almost nothing to go on. 

“What do we think?” the captain asked. “I think the parents killed the child. ” detective hornsby said. “That makes no sense. “Wheller said.”neither does anything else. Lets go with the most sensible conclusion . that is they killed there own kid. “Hornsby said. 

“No way. There is no evidence of that. ” wheeler said. “It is the nist plausible? “Hornsby said. “We are arguing from silence.  ” whealer said. 

Later on

“I got something. The parkers are on a list of potentily abusive parrents. ” officer daigle said. “Give me more detail. “The captain said. “A website ran by former mayor wilson rudgeway colects list of potentialy abusive husbends or parrents.  The site includes contributors who are former law enforcement including criminal profilers. “The officer said.  

“What do they have?”whealer asked.”they are a member of a non afiliated baptist church. They refer to themselves as independent fundamental Baptist.  He came form a baptist church in north carolina known for its rigid interpretation of the bible. The church is on the radar of the southern poverty law center. Aperently they have abusive tendentcies. ” the officer said. 

“Are we going back to the parkers as suapects? I just dont see it. These people are pillers of the ccommunity . ” whealer said. 

“I hardly call them pillers. How have they contributed to society? They are a cult.  “Hornsby said. “Hold on. We are complaining about the young people these days. No ambition no goals. They keep there noise cleen. Fundamental Christianity may not be your cup of tea but they are hardly a cult. “Whealer said. 

“Well lets talk to those behind the registry.  Maybe they have insight. Wilson ridgeway is a legend and a friend of this department.  “The captain said.

“David parker is on our radar. Fundies target smal town. Especially ones with high crime . places where industry once thruves but moved out. High population of white fokes. In my estimation patker is a tiking time bomb. ” ridgeway said.

“Your group beleves that indoctrination in child abuse.”whealer said.”Fundies have babies for the express perpose of mantaning there strain of Christianity. It is religious eugenics.  “Ridgeway said. 

“Wanting to pass down your views is hardly abuse. I passed down my love of fishing to my kids. Is that not a kind of indoctrination ?”he asked. “This country is founded on fredom. Children should be able to chart there own course without interference. “Ridgeway said. 

“Every parent has expectations. Using your philosophy, every patent enploys indoctrinatination. a ‘fundy’ argue that you inationoctrinating your children by pasing on your philosophy.  “Whealer said. “I give my children the chance to acept or reject my views. I present my views as my opinion. I dont claim my views ate devine. “He said. 

The cops got a break. A tip came in.a neighbor of a young lady reported her sudenly having a child. There is no evidence she had been pregnent or had a boyfriend.

 “Mrs ames is mistaken.” annie ross posner said. ” other neighbors corroborate her story. They verify seing a baby. ” whealer said. ” she is a friends baby. I was baby siting.” she said.”where is yhe baby now?”hornsby asked. 

“She is back with her mom. “Annie answered. ” we will need to speak to her mom. “Whealer said. The detectives went to the home. The lady in question was gone.  It seams she had moved out. 

“We are looking for laurie mceverit cassey. She is 20 years old. Sosiology majer. She has ties to Oregon and Nevada. “The captain said.

Laurie was picked up in a nearby sate. The baby was not with her.she was extradited. The cops went to intervue her. She was clad in an orange jump suit. ” i am a political prisoner.”she said.

“How so?”whealer asked. ” i did what i did to stop child abuse. “She said. “Look the parkers are fine people. ” whealer said.” if his name was Mohammed not David would you feel that way. How is david Parker any different then jim jones or david koresh? “She said.

“Did you kidnap baby elie?”hornsby asked.  “I was not involved in tje liberation. I provided a safe house for those who did.”she said.

They discovered a group that called themselves free Genevieve.  The group was started to stop indoctrination of children of religious families . Genevieve was a baby caught up in a child custody case. Her mom was converted to Christianity her farther was a vehement atheist and tried to stop her from taking his child to church The case has developed internet groupies who call themselves free Genevieve or free jeny. 

The police was able to get acess to members of this group. They found elie alive and well in Missouri at the home of a member of the group. There were mass arest.

Wilson ridgeway tried to get the courts to block elie’s return to her patents. The courts refused.  The parkers were herased. They decided to close down the church. They moved to the east coast and avoided social media. 

The end.

Brad and elizebeth parents had aranged for them to be maried. They had got off to a rocky start.could they made it work?

They fell asleep on Saturday night. Brad woke up. He found that he was beyond the point of falling back to sleep. He tried to get out of bed without waking her up. It failed.

“Hey! Where are you going?” she asked. “I was going to go for a walk. I used to go hear often in vacation as a kid. I gues i want to relive my childhood a bit. “He told her.

“Can i come with you?”she asked. ” of course. “He said.they got up. They got dressed. He beleved that ladies should wear skirts or dresses.she rarely wore dresses ir skirt.she brought one dress.she wore a green t shirt and jeens and flip flops. 

They started to walk outside the cabin. Neither one was sure was sure who took whose hand.they both looked at eachother. They smiled.  

” so you used to come hear as a child”she asked.  “I am prety sure i came hear while i was still in the womb.  It was a favorate place of everyone in my family.”he said.

“It is a beautiful spot.”she said ” it really is. Do you like going in a canoe? “He asked. “I love going out in the  watter. “She said.”want to rent a canoe tomorrow?  He asked. “Sounds great.”she said.

“I though we could play paint ball as well.  “He said. She chuckled.” i get to schoot you with paint?”she asked. “Well you have to get to me first. My evasive tactics are legendary.  ” he said. “We will see about that. “She said. He laughed. ” oh ok!”he said.

“I figured today would be a low key day.  With church in the morning and night i figured that we not do too much.”he said. 

“Yea thats fine.  I assume that we are going to a baptist church?”she asked. “There is a Baptist church not to far from hear. Yes it is independent fundamental Baptist.  “He said. “I assumed as much.”she said.

They walked back to the cabin. “I figured that we would have a light breakfast. Toast and cofee. Tomorrow we can have a bigger breakfast. “He said. “Yea thats fine i understand that we are on a bit of a tight schedule. “She said. “I promise that today will not be indicative of the rest of the week. I do want this to be relaxing week. “He said 

“You dont have a clipboard with a idomized itinerary of what we are doing?”she asked in a playfull tone.”no i dont have a clipboard. Please dont look in the blue bag.no i dont have a clip bored!”he answered.  She laughed.

” you probably think i am extremly dul!” he said. ” it is not a deal breaker.  “She reaplied. ” ok. ” he said. They both laughed. 

He made the cofee. She made toast. They got ready for church. She put on the only dress she packed with her. It was a black dress with pink and white flowers on it. He wore a suit . 

He took her hand.  They walked to the car. The church was a about 15 minutes away from the campground. The church was a newer church. It had only been around for 15 years. The car parked in the parking lot. 

They walked to the church. “Hello brad. Come without your family? “A man in his thirties asked. “I am my honey moon.”brad said.  “Oh wow.congratulations.  this must be your bride?” he asked. “It is.this is my wife libby elzebeth. “He said. “Im jim noris it is good to meat you”he said. 

They talked to several of the church members before they went to there seats. Some he remembered was from earlier visits,others were new to him.

Libby was laughing. “What?”he asked. “You! You know how many times you introduced me as libby then changed it to elizebeth.  ” she said. 

“I kinda gave you that name. I dont know. You could hate it. “He said. “I like that you came up with a pet naime for me. Its fine. I like it. You can introduce me as libby. ” she said. “Ok!” he said.

“You do know your really silly.  ” she told her.  “Oh ok ” he said. They both laughed. .

The church was not quite what she was used to. Her church had a worship team with a band.they used power point. The church had high tech equipment.  This church did not. They used a piano and organ. The church sang from hymbooks. They did record the messages. She was not use to it. 

She perfered newer music not the old hyims. She found the music time a bit boring. It was quick. The preaching was prety good. 

Afterward they went back to the cabin. He helped her make lunch.  “What did you think of church? “He asked.  “Interesting.  A bit different.  “She said. “I suspected it was. ” he said. “I gues i will have to adjust.  ” she said. ” i know it will be an adjustment.  ” he said. 

They had steak potatoes and vegetables for lunch.after the meal,they decided to take a nap.  

“Your not ashamed of me?” she asked. “No not at all. “He said. “I dont embarrass you?”she asked. “No you dont.do i embariss you?”he asked. “No you are a bit uptight!  “She said. “Me upright no not me! He said. She laughed. He huged her.  She held on to him. 

They went to the same church they did in the morning.  She got used to it a little more. After church they went to the cabin. They roasted marshmellows.

“Ok what are you doing?”she asked.”roasting marshmallow! “He said “you do know your marshmellows is on fire?”she asked.”i love my marshmellows burnt to a crisp. ” he said. “Are you going to put that in a smore?”she asked.  “Of course.  Smores with charred marshmellows are the best.” he said. “I will take your word for it. ” she told her. 

After the marshmellows were roasted, she got out her guitar. “You play the guitar?” he asked. “I do. “She said.

She staetted playing a song he bad never heard before.  She played a song called “mighty to save. “He liked her signing voice.  She had a soft sothing vioce.he found himself transfixed. 

“Your realy a good singer. “He told her. “Thank you.”she said. She played several ccm songs.then she played a cover of street with no naime. Then she played the theme from star trek. “You would know that one! ” he said. “Yes i would.  ” she said.
