“You’re in love with someone else? Did I hear that right?”
“Yes Angela, I am.”
“Well, then I guess there’s not much more to say then is there?”
“I’m sorry, Angela. I wish it didn’t have to be this way.”
“Says the man in love with another woman?”
“Um. Not a woman Angela.”
“Excuse me? Are you telling me that you have fallen in love with a MAN?”
“Yes Angela, that is exactly what I’m saying.”
She gave him a look that said she was ready to smack him. "Keith are you joking?"
"No Angela i'm not. Im sorry. Would you rather i cheated and slowly pushed you away?"
Some of the fight drained out of her. "I suppose not."
"Are you ok?"
"Yeah. I will be.”
Keith moved close to her and rubbed her shoulders. “It’s going to be ok.”
“How do you know?”
“Because I just do. Angela I will always be your friend. I will always be there for you if you need me.”
“Thanks Keith, I may need friends eventually.”
“Angela I have to go now. I wish I could stay so we could talk.”
“I’m sure we’ll have time to talk later.” With that, Angela left the office and the precinct. When she got in her car, she laid her head on the dash and cried.
Back in the office Keith’s phone rang. He quickly grabbed the phone and answered, “Hello this is Keith.”
“Is this Detective Brody’s primary,” said an anonymous male voice.
“Yes it is. Who is this?”
“Let’s just say what I have to say may aid your investigation.”
“Ok what do you have to say?”
“Do you know John Trent?”
A pang of fear coursed through Keith. What was John in and how bad was it. “Yes, what about him?”
“Maybe you should ask him about the Detective. Make sure you watch his eyes when he answers. That’s how you will know if he’s lying.”
The dial tone blared out at him as he frowned down at the phone. How was John connected? Was he connected? How deep was he in? “My god!” Keith dropped into his office chair and dropped is head to his head. Shit!
