Flash Fiction: Back to work

D.I Lucy and D.S Fenworthy arrived at the crime scene. This was Lucy’s first case after a much needed holiday and from the little information she had gotten from her boss, it was not going to be an easy one.

Her brows furrowed and her footsteps became brisk; with Fenworthy, jogging a bit to catch up with her.
You know boss”, he uttered amidst breaths, “I should be the one grouchy considering you got a holiday and I didn’t”.
He was right and she knew it.

She apologised, “Its just, this is one of the hardest type of cases. The water would have tampered with most of the evidences”.

Leaving us with little to make a solid case”, Fenworthy concluded.

Exactly“.

They walked the remainder of the pathway in silence, each absorbed in their own thought. A scene which would normally have been picturesque would now be remembered for the grisly murder carried out there. Lucy sighed, wondering how much longer she could do this, before something had to give.

  1. Ameena I love the crime story take on this. I imagine that would led be a difficult and stressful career, especially after being away from it. Maybe she liked it or is good at, or maybe she needs a new job? Nice to read your work again. I hope you’ve been well and your studies are good too.
