Until We Meet Again


 “Vera, I have some news.” Doctor Ashlan’s voice sounded shaky through the phone.
 “Go on,” she urged; a nervous feeling bubbled in the pit of her stomach.
 “Doctor Spencer, the man you were asking about, was brought in with gunshot wounds.... He didn’t survive.”
 “Damn it…” she sounded more angry than upset as her mind raced to Jeffrey. The news meant he might not be getting any monetary damages after all. “Thank you. I’ll let my uncle know.”

An Interruption

 “Wait,” the detective interrupted, “I don’t know if I can buy that that elaborate setup on the island is there for just you and no one else. That’s a big house. I don’t believe it was just your pirate hobby. There’s something else... Who are you protecting?”

The Raid


Detective Rodriguez’s Report:


7:10 p.m. I was aboard one of two patrol vessels as we approached the target location; each boat was full of eight officers in combat attire and equipped with either rifles, side arms, or beanbag shooters -I had notified the coast guard of our intentions earlier that afternoon and received their complete cooperation. When the intended island first came into view we immediately took note of a moored speed boat at a large pier. All was quiet. No visible perps or movement. I used the department issued scanner to check for cameras; there was only one found near the front door. We then turned on the signal jammers.

Lawyer vs. Police:
A Tango

Armed with Vera’s research in the leather bag draped around his neck, Hugh Dunn stormed into the police station through the automatic glass doors. Busy bees buzzed on either side of the front desk barrier between he and his objective. He looked around the reception area; a large blue mat covered the entirety of the floor while black plastic chairs lined either wall. Two people stood guard behind the desk, a man and woman, both in uniform. Though he tried, he could not sneak past the gatekeepers. The dance had begun.

Safe House

Jeffrey twiddled his thumbs as he stared out of the passenger side window of Vera’s compact car. Every few minutes he’d subconsciously fidget with the large blue rubber arm band around his bicep that the hospital had given him to dispense his varying medicines at scheduled times; it blinked a small green LED (on, off, on, off) rather annoyingly, he thought. The small plastic bag atop his jittering legs crinkled noisily; in it were the different medicinal cartridges he would have to change out over the next few days.
