A Mother’s Memory, by Sankar Chatterjee

(F.F.F. Website Story)

Carla Hayman, with husband Rob and two toddlers, got stranded in Amsterdam airport during a trans-Atlantic flight. Coming outside, they took a cab to the Van Gogh Museum, but found both children asleep. The cab-driver suggested driving them around and meet the couple in an hour. The plan worked smoothly, making the couple repeat the process visiting Anne Frank House. They thanked the driver profusely. But while flying, Carla felt a chill: “What if the cab-driver been a child-trafficker, taking away my precious daughters?”

That was twenty years ago. Now-a-days Carla ponders, “Why do I still remember the event?”
