“Anita” called Tony
“Tony! You are early today”
“Yep. Where is the baby?”
“He was in the dining room, playing with those plastic fruit loops you got yesterday.” said Anita
“What! The loops are not meant for… wanted to test them in my lab.. Why did you take them out of the bag?” screamed Tony, running to the dining room.
The baby was nowhere to be seen.
“I put the fruit loops in the bowl” said a bewildered Anita “Where is the baby?”
“He is gone.” said Tony, his face ashen.
