“Leg,” baby Kristy said. “KNIFE!!!”
Emma gasped and pointed to Kristy.

A couple minutes had passed since she was supposed to be there. Finally, Emma heard a knock at the door. Emma opened the door. It wasn’t Mandy. Instead it was a few police officers. They took Emma out the door and and into a police car.
