So he knew that smell like he knew the smell of barbecue cooked in Memphis, Tennessee. He sniffed again. He started walking away from the rosebush. He followed his nose. Lo and behold under the big Oak tree lie a two month old baby. The baby could have been younger. He had smelled a dirty diaper. Oddly, the baby wasn’t crying.

He picked her up. Ran up the six steps and rang the bell of the pretty large suburban house.
