The Cause

"You want to follow me?" He asked pointing her away from the rooster who was now crowing and seemed very content with making noise than worrying about being tied to the pole.

She started to shake her head at the handsome man until he chuckled at her reaction and said, "Don't worry. I know you're a volunteer. I'm a head volunteer, so I get to show all the new people the ropes."

She nodded and then smiled as he led the way as he continued his conversation. "There are a lot of people here that need our help. Thank you for being a part of this by the way. I just hope we're not too late. We're losing them to the drug more and more by the hours."

“Yes. Can you believe a simple thing that claimed to be the best weight loss pills in the drug industry did all of this?” She said as she followed him to a table covered with medical supplies.

He stopped, then turned toward her, lowered his voice and said, “To be quite honest, no. I think there’s something else causing all of this, miss. I’m sorry. I didn’t quite catch your name.”

“It’s Hope Conwell. And please tell me more.” She whispered.
