Seeing as it is the month of December, the month of all things christmassy, I thought it was only appropriate to give a.... nope no Christmas Story here! I've found out I'm actually extremley bad at themed stories, so here's a simple short one for you. This will be part of a series and there will be other additional stories following on to it.
Let me know what you think in the comments below! :)
"Jemma was walking down the cobbles of NYU texting her boyfriend- Daniel- when the car hit her. The driver was a young college student who was drinking whilst driving. Witnesses were two of Jemma's friends who were waiting for her at the end of the pavement and a homeless woman. Jemma and David were romantically connected, doesn't seem like he knew Jemma was dating another person, yet coincedentally whilst drunk he smashed a car killing both of them. I want forensics on the car, a patrol team sent to Jemma's & David's respective houses to interview the families. I want...." PC Maggie was interrupted by her son barging into the door...of her workplace?
"Mum, what the hell do you think you're doing!" her son shouted at her- the murmmed chatter in the office fell to a toxic silence.
"What do you think I'm doing Daniel! My job! What do you think you're doing here? You should be at College."
"Yeah, whatever sure, I just came to check something. When I told you to your face this morning the news about my dead girlfriend you already knew didn't you!"
"I may have known...something, but Daniel you shouldn't be here!"
"And you also seem to know she was cheating on me with the frickin captain of the NYU Football team! Yet didn't feel the need to tell me? What were you thinking!" Daniel paused to catch his breath, whilst Maggie's cheeks turned a dark shade of tomato red.
"Daniel, this is not an inappropriate conversation to having, we'll deal with this later."
"NO, I think this is the perfect time in front of all your collegues so they can hear the truth about you and Dad and how you lie to your son about his dead girlfriend!"
"Daniel, she's dead there's not anything I can do to bring her back, I kept the details from you because of confidentiality! Her family don't want all of campus to know she or her lover are dead."
"Mum, you're so insentive sometimes! This is death you're talkiing about not something that can just be covered up!"
"You think I of all people don't know that! Daniel after your Father died- and I had to bring up a son... who turned out to be an ungrateful brat of a child!" Maggie's hands flew to her mouth and she shook her head in disbelief at what she had just said. "Daniel...you know I didn't mean that..but.."
"But what! Have something else to say about the Father you've never talked about to me for 10 f****** years?" Daniel stormed out slamming the door behind him. The full blow of what Maggie had just done hit her hard and she collapsed onto the floor in front of her colleagues. An ambulance was called and Maggie stayed in the hospital for one night with a concussion. When that night had gone by, Daniel was missing.
He wanted to know the truth.
