“The Kenyan government has hired my services to track down and capture the lions that killed your husband.”

My name is Charles Henley, and I’m calling from Kenya, East Africa.”

“Yes, that’s what my daughter said. How may I help you?”

“I am the owner of a safari outfitting business here in Kenya. As a matter of fact, I am an American, and was raised in Texas. The Kenyan government has hired my services to track down and capture the lions that killed your husband. I know this has to be so horrible for you, but the killer lions are the reason for my call.”

“Capture! Did you just say capture?”

“Yes, the Minister of Wildlife wants them captured and studied. Their wish is to learn all they can, so something horrible like this might never happen again. I know this is very painful, but I need to ask a few questions that could help us. Is this a good time to talk?”

“I’m getting my girls ready for school. I have about 5 minutes.”

“Great, thank you. Where in Oklahoma am I calling?”

“Tulsa.”

“Great city. I’ve been there several times. When did you return from Kenya?”

“Two days ago. The funeral was yesterday.”

“I’m so sorry for your loss. What age are your girls?”

“They are seven. They’re twins. They have been so upset, I hope they can be ok in school today.”
