A small fat pail man jumped out of the police car he had short curly brown hair 2 small beedy blue eyes and fat red lips

"Anyone there" he shouted banging on the door.
There was no reply he took his hat off his head and slamed it down to the floor "IT IS THE POLICE COME OUT NOW OR I'LL
BRAKE THE DOOR DOWN" he shouted in temper and started to take
steps away from the door.
After a munite with all his forse he ranforward and broke the door down. He hit it so hard it smashed into a million
As he walked into the house he saw a body at the bottom of the
He ran over to her and serched for a pulss he shook his head it was strage she look very fimilure.
He froze in thought for a few munites and gasped "an ambulance get Detective preston on the phone i think he's gonna want
to see this.
The ambulance and Detective Mark Preston were there as soon as the officer put the phone down.
In walked Preson "whats going on here" he said in a posh snobby voice.
the officer looked at him with a worried look "take a look for your self sir" he said as he bit his lip.
Preston walked over the the cold and lifeless body he looked at her with suprise and took his thick round glasses off "oh

The officer nodded and they both lifted the body to take it to the ambulance.
"I cant belive it" said Mrak rubbing his long pointy nose.
They waited in the hospitle for the women to be examend the room was dull with white walls and a gray floor even the chairs
were just a plain grey.
"being in this room is depresing me even more" sighed Mark.
"Why you so upset about it" the officer asked scraching his chin.
"well i used to be best freinds with her but after we left school we just didnt see eachother much.

the officer shook his head "shame" he said putting his chin in his hands.
"Mr preston can we talk to you" said a very small pail nurse.
Mark got up and walked into the room where Zara lay "yes" he said.
"well after examination we know 2 things 1 she was beaten to death and 2 this isnt Zara Thompsons body" the nurse told him.
Mark looked at her funny "well whos body is it then" he asked taking his top hat off to show his bright orange hair.
"Well that the comfusing thing the body belongs to her dead sister Emmy".
Marks eyes grew wide with comfusen "b b b but thats imposible" he sttuterd and took the DNA sheet off the nurse to look for
It ws there clear as day it was defently the body of Emmy Thompson he walked out the hospitle and started home
That night Mark didnt sleep a wink how in the world could someone die and then die again 1o years after and where was Zara
He squeesed the bed cloths tight and tryed to go sleep in hope that somthing might come to light that could help him.
When he woke up he still couldnt think of anything at all but he knew that this was no ordenery murder.
he put on his black suit and top hat and went to find Emmys and Zaras perants.
As he walked along the street his mined began to wonder just how in the world can someone die twice it was defently Emmy
the DNA results proved that
He reached the house he gased up at the big classy manchion that gleemed in the summer sun.
Detective prestion begain to walk up the path that led up to the door and knocked on.
A tall skinny women with bright blond hair and rosey red lips flung open the door "Hello" she said looking at him.
Mark took off his hat and placed it on his cheast "hi Juily im
affrade i have some bad news may i come in" he sighed.
Juily's eyes widend with fear "Mark so long a yet no see sure you can come in".
He enterd the manchion and stood in the door way.

The wall were peach with a red spirle stair case the golden frames hung from the walls like trophies and the black marble
floor was so shiney he could see is face in it.
"Teas ready" she stutterd remembring Mark was here to tell her bad news.
"come and sit in the living room" she said moving to one side.

Mark sighed "theres no easy way to say this but im affraid Emmy is dead" he said slowley.

he nodded his head "i know but DNA proves its Emmy's body we found yestrday and we dont know where Zara is" he said
srugging his shoulders "But we need your promishion to use her

Juily wiped her eyes "he's on a biussnes trip in france" she cried and Mark left the buildling
Mark returned to the crime Sean and began to dust for finger

other end do something so horrible"
"Dad goes on a bussnis trip just after the murder" it was all strange.
He resurched the famouse fashion designer Zara Thompson and he found that she lost alot of publiate just after her sister
died it seemed her desgnes where just not
as good as what they where.
as a few day past he felt he was Just going in circles
It was a Foggy Dark Tuesday night and mark was on his way home after anougher day of getting no where into the case
and he bumped into someone on the street "you" whisperd a girl in a black cloke.
Mark turned around sharply to look at her but could not see her face "your investigating Emmy Thompsons death righ?".
Mark nodded and tryed to peek at her face "yes it me but who are you" Mark asked.
"shhhh someone might hear us meet me in the ally in 10 munits dont ask why and you must come alone i have things to tell

Mark nodded "now tell me what you know and why you need to keep you identity so secret" he asked sharply.
"The murder also thretend me when he knew i found out i cant tell you who it is or how they did it but i'll leave you with

when she found out the truth.
Then the murder took emmys body and Zara's Spirit now they are both dead.

Mark wached her disapper into the mist and steard in comfusion he started to drive home but his thoughts made him turn

Marks lit up with supprise and shock "when is David due back do you know?" he asked
"his plane lands in about 1 hour but why do you need to know?"
Mark snapped his fingers i'll explane eveything soon but for now i need you to come with me".
Juily didnt say anything and did as she was told.
When they arrived at the airport mark called into his radio "hi

Juily fell silent and shook her head she began to tear up and looked away.
"Then that must mean you killed her sir and dont denie it i know you killed her and i know why" Mark said smuggly.
David gave a loud grunt "fine then you tell me how you know" he snarled
