Greg darted his eyes from the metal table as one of the prison doors opened. Detective Adam Darwood and Detective Jake Milling strolled into the room. “I was expecting David Buckman. He and I have known each other for years and-” 

“He’s busy,” Adam said sitting across from Greg.

“Oh…” Greg laughed then continued “Is he crying over Rose?”

“That’s none of your business. We’re here to talk to you about assaulting and murdering Odilia Zink.” 

“Can you prove it?” Greg arched his eyebrow.

“Dude!” Jake shouted then continued “Your DNA was found all over the crime scene.


“That shows you’re guilty.”

“Can I take a plea deal?”

“A plea?” Adam said in frustration.

“You…” Jake paused then continued. “You not only assaulted and murdered a woman. You also held hostage and shot a detective. And your involvement with AO2050…”

“AO2050 is my business. Don’t talk about us.” Greg yelled as his hands turned red from clenching his fists.

“It became our business when you sent Rose and Sarah a package to our department. We have every right to be involved.”

“Well, what did you find?”

“This box,” Adam said pulling a small box from his pocket. Opening the box there was a key inside with AO2050 etched onto it.

“You don’t even know what it’s for.”

“We’ll figure it out.”

“This is so messed up!” Greg then lifted his hands as high as they would go since his wrists were cuffed to the table.

“Times up.” A correctional officer said stepping into the room.

“I’m not done talking.” Greg frowned.

“Finch…you’ll get your visitation next month.” 

Greg watched as the officer led the detectives to the door and he eased dropped on their conversation.

“I’m sorry you have to deal with him,” said the officer.

“We are too.” Has he been causing trouble?” Adam said buttoning up his coat.

“Yes. He’s a pain.”

“We’re sorry for you too.”

“If we have any correspondence for Greg-”

“Drop it off with the official stamp.”

“Thanks,” Adam said with a nod then he and Jake left the room.

Greg was glad when the officer returned and brought him back to his cell. Its walls seemed to be closing in on him. He couldn’t believe he found himself in this mess and he knew that he may never get out of it.
