Sheriff Drew places three images down on the metal table, each a different angle of the deceased body. The first is a full-body shot, showing the womenโ€™s undressed body laying down in the alley. The middle is a shot of the fingerprints on her neck and bruises on her face. The last one shows the way the blood leaked out from under her body.

โ€œDo you know this woman?โ€ She asks the man.

โ€œNo,โ€ a drop of sweat travels down his neck to his back.

โ€œMr. Louis, where were you on June 21st at 1:43 am?โ€

โ€œI had just gotten off of my shift at Bullets Bar.โ€

โ€œCorrect me if Iโ€™m wrong, but isnโ€™t this the alley behind the bar,โ€ she points to the first photo.

โ€œIt is,โ€ he nods.

โ€œDid you go out the front or back?โ€

โ€œThe front maโ€™am.โ€ She smirks. Turning around, she grabs a remote from a stand in the room. The t.v comes to life, displaying a video.

โ€œThis video was taken at 1:30 am, from a security camera on the small shop next door. 1:31 am a man wearing a black ACDC shirt with his initials on it comes out the back, where a woman is waiting. 1:32 they start kissing. 1:34 the guy tries to slips his hand up her dress. 1:36 he grabs her by the neck and moves out of frame. 1:38 the dress she was wearing is thrown in view along with her undergarments. 1:43 the body drops to the floor and the guy is nowhere around. Itโ€™s funny because you said you left out the front but isnโ€™t the guy you. I mean arenโ€™t your initials RML, Roger Michael Louis? And isnโ€™t this also your girlfriend, but it couldnโ€™t be, right? I mean you said you didnโ€™t know her.โ€ She finishes by turning around and crossing her arms.

โ€œShe was a one-night stand, but I donโ€™t know her.โ€ He explains, to a very unimpressed Sheriff.

โ€œThen explain this,โ€ she drops multiple pictures of the two. โ€œMr. Louis, she wasnโ€™t a one-night stand, I mean unless you always post pictures with your one-night stands on your Instagram with #loveofmylife.โ€

โ€œIโ€™d like to call my lawyer.โ€ He stands abruptly.

โ€œNo need for a lawyer,โ€ she hits the next button on the remote, turning it to a different camera angle. Were it shows Mr. Louis viciously beating her and then stabbing her. โ€œYou know what the best part is? This.โ€ She pauses the video to stop exactly when the man looks up. โ€œDo you have a twin Mr. Louis?โ€

The door opens as another cop comes in with handcuffs. โ€œTake him away, Jerry.โ€

โ€œWill do. A person is asking for you in the waiting room, sheriff.โ€

โ€œName?โ€

โ€œDonโ€™t know, but heโ€™s related to a shootout that happened tonight. Said itโ€™s urgent.โ€

โ€œIโ€™ll go check it out, thanks,โ€ Closing the door behind her, she heads in the direction of the waiting room. Who could it be she wonders? She grabs the coffee off her desk only to drop it when she sees who the person is.

โ€œSkylar, we need to talk.โ€

โ€œHow are you today?โ€ The receptionist asks, a lustful smile on her lips as she catches sight of the twins and Nate.

โ€œGreat, now,โ€ Dylan smirks. I roll my eyes as I jab him in the stomach.

โ€œWe have an appointment with Dr. Bow at 11, can we head in?โ€ Nate asks.

She looks at the computer, typing away, but still watching the boys. Gross. โ€œYou can head in now.โ€

โ€œCome on boys,โ€ Nate all but drags the twins to the room.

โ€œI donโ€™t understand why Iโ€™m here. Iโ€™m fine,โ€ I comment. Ever since Iโ€™ve been jumpier and having not-so-nice dreams, theyโ€™ve pushed the idea of my going to see a therapist. News flash, I canโ€™t be fixed.

โ€œWeโ€™re here because we want whatโ€™s best for you and because itโ€™s free.โ€ He mutters the last part under his breath, but I still hear him.

โ€œItโ€™s only free because the guy owes you!โ€ Nate shrugs.

โ€œThatโ€™s beside the point, now go in,โ€ he opens the door and shoves me inside. Bastard!

โ€œYou must be Skylar,โ€ he speaks. Dr. Bowtoxic looks to be around 40, he has on black wire-rimmed glasses, salt and pepper hair, brown eyes, a grey shirt, thatโ€™s a little too small for his Santa belly, and black slacks.

โ€œWho did you expect it to be, your slutty receptionist?โ€

โ€œHow are you doing today?โ€ He totally skipped my question.

โ€œTerrible.โ€

โ€œWhy is that?โ€ He asks in a therapistโ€™s voice. You know the voice that tells you โ€˜Iโ€™m here for you and I understand how you feel.โ€™

โ€œBecause Iโ€™m here, with you,โ€ I say in a monotone voice.

โ€œDo you always use sarcastic nature instead of emotions?โ€

โ€œNo, I cried when that girl didnโ€™t get hit by the bus.โ€

โ€œIs violence your way to feel needed? You think to be useful you need to destroy or ruin something?โ€ How is this guy a therapist? None and I mean absolutely none of that makes sense.

โ€œYou know what Doc, maybe. Maybe I use violence as an outlet.โ€ I say in an โ€˜I need help voiceโ€™.

โ€œOutlet for what?โ€ Is the bitch stupid?

โ€œHow are you a therapist!? What else would I do with violence? Are you telling me youโ€™ve never destroyed something when youโ€™re angry?โ€

โ€œOr is violence the only thing you know?โ€

โ€œI know other things, like when the birds meet the b-โ€

โ€œWhat about your brothers?โ€œHe cuts me off, fucking rude ass!

" What brothers?โ€ I act as though I donโ€™t know who heโ€™s referring to.

โ€œLiam and Trey, your brothers.โ€ I keep a blank expression. This bitch needs to work harder to break me open. And correction that isnโ€™t my brothers, theyโ€™re my half.
