I'm thinking about writing a short story.
It's about a kid named Timmy who runs away from his abusive father John who has been trying to hide the fact that he abuses all of his children. Timmy first think to run to the sheriff's office, because he lives in a town in the middle of nowhere, but remembers that his dad is the sheriff. House after house, he visits his neighbors, seeking protection from his father, but not a single one lets him in except for Ivan, the only neighbor that isn't afraid of John. In a jaw-breaking twist, it is revealed at the end that Ivan too, beats his children.
I'm gonna title it "Timmy's Espionage."
