Gerry claimed that she had never received any kind of notice about going to court. Because of that, Gerry didn't show up in court and a warrant for her arrest was issued. Gerry thought about her options. She was a bit too old and weak to mow the lawn herself, but she couldn't really afford to pay someone else to do the work either. She was in a real predicament, but she never expected what would happen next.

True Terror

Put yourself in Gerry's shoes, and imagine how scared she must have been thinking that she was going to jail. How would she get herself out of this with no money and no help? She would soon find out that things were about to look up.

As Gerry sat in her living room chair, she was at a loss on what to do next. She didn't have family that lived close, and her husband had passed away many years ago. She was out of options, but how could she go to jail? As she pondered on what to do, she began to hear strange sounds coming from outside. She crept to her window to get a closer look and felt shivers travel through her body.

There were four boys coming towards her from the edge of her land. What were they doing on her property? What did they want? She began to grow nervous and this was literally the last thing she needed. Were they a bunch of troublemakers who were targeting older people? As the boys got closer to her, she knew what she needed to do. She would fight.

Unfortunately, home invasions are a very real concern for the elderly. Because they can be a bit weaker and naive than other people, the elderly are an easy target for those with ill intentions. Hopefully, Gerry was prepared for whatever was coming her way.
