Despite the fact that she picked a pair of comfortable sneakers, Corbett’s feet were wet and in pain. To make things worse, she could feel a bunch of blisters forming. But this was a normal routine for her. She walked to Bojangles in the cold and then walked back home. It was a 12-mile walk on foot, but her family was counting on her. Then, one day, a cop stopped her, and her whole life changed.

The 12-mile walk was tough. But her determination proved she was willing to sacrifice everything for her family. They needed her and she knew it. She couldn’t let them down. But there was never any doubt in her mind she could do it. Then the cop stopped her and made her rethink everything, including her decision to keep on risking her life like this.

He pulled up slowly, rolled his window down, and asked her to approach him. She had nowhere to go, so she decided to stop ignoring him. She was afraid, her heart pounded loudly in her chest. She knew she was in big trouble. But she couldn’t avoid her fate. Judgment day had come for her.

She Was Afraid

She was very confused. Cops tend to give people the heebie-jeebies, and that’s exactly what she was feeling. She kept replaying different scenarios in her mind. Was he going to ask her for directions or would they end up putting her behind bars? Had her past caught up with her. She felt her heart beating fast. What if they put her in the backseat and took her with them? What about her poor family?

She noticed the words “Sheriff, Nash County” on the side of the cruiser as she approached it slowly. Cautiously, she walked up to the driver’s window and prepared for what was to come. Then Sgt. Bass spoke, but even as she heard the words, she had a tough time processing what he was saying. Then, the haze from her brain dissipated. Her eyes widened as confusion turned into surprise.
