Kelly stumbled back, her face pale and horrified. What had she just done? Byron caught her arm to help keep her from falling. “Whoa.” he said. “My apologies, I didn’t mean to startle you.”
It took almost an hour to track down the manager of the apartment building. Byron determined after the third “haven’t seen him” that they didn’t run a very tight ship.
Byron spent most of the next day preparing to dump his ex. Once everything was ready for that night, he went out to treat himself to lunch at his favorite café.
For my birthday...
For my birthday theme this year, I chose “Celebrate who you are rather than the things you do.” (It's a little exercise in getting to know myself and thinking about how much may have changed since my last birthday.)
Byron was completely intrigued now. This was likely to turn into his next obsession case; that’s what the other law officers called it when he focused on just one case until it was resolved.
Byron sat at the table, drinking his coffee and watching the videos they had left him here with. They wanted him to take on another new case. He had already refused and said he was too busy but they had agreed to take off the two cold cases he had agreed to look into if he would just watch the videos.
Kelly had awakened the next morning to the sound of the barred door opening and someone entering the room. She turned over expecting to see her father but was disappointed when it was just the young girl who worked in the kitchen. She had brought breakfast.
Kelly was too distraught to respond. Her parents looked back and forth between them in shock and disbelief. They scolded him for saying such nonsense about his sister and reminded him the penalty of such accusations.
