After coming in and freshening up, we were relaxing when there was a sound outside that I knew so well. I looked over at Omar. He turned his head the other way, smiled and headed for the door. “I’ll be right back Ma,” he said, in that mysterious way we have of communicating.
He went out to meet his friends and I rushed to the window.
Their names were Maxwell and Sahji Banks.
They were on their way to K-9 Town. Omar said they went there often, now that their people parent, Greg, had built them a doggie door. He was good to them and they loved him, which is why they didn’t stay at K-9 Town with their canine family.
Omar Blue and the pack didn’t allow them to go alone because of the dangers they might encounter as they traveled through the wilderness. He would accompany them.
I’ve written about the Undercover Sting. It was amazing. I was there. Well, for a little while.
Surprisingly, Maxwell and Sahji wanted to talk about it. They wanted me to talk about it.
What else could a writer of “true tales” do? I started telling about that night, has I remembered it, without hesitation……..
THE UNDERCOVER STING
When he looked over at the table
Ma what are you doing here
No, no said Omar and Major Diggs
I ran quick like a bunny
I got home in a jiffy
He told us what had happened
Is how he heard your call?
I'd been wanting an answer to that question since it happened. It was Maxwell that spoke. He said, "We all concentrated real hard on Omar Blue. We had heard about him and knew he and his followers would come, and they did."
I looked over at Omar. I was so proud of my big boy. He knew he had to get away before I ran over and gave him a big hug and embarrassed him.
I think Maxwell and Sahji understood that too because the three of them were up at the door saying goodbye before I knew what happened. I laughed to myself.
I watched them go down the road always taken until I could no longer see them.
It was such a pleasure meeting Maxwell and Sahji. I know I'll see them again.
