Reece lifted his eyebrow when Tyler dragged Sky into the front room.
“Too busy to speak with your old boss?”
“Never,” She said and sat down, “What’s up?”
“I need your help,” He sighed, “A body has been found and we need you to make a sketch,”
Sky frowned, “What happened to the person who usually does the sketches? I thought you-”
“Because the witness will only talk with you,” Reece tutted, “I’ve tried to tell her that she can trust us, but no. She has refused to talk,”
“I supposed I should get dressed,” Sky said getting to her feet, “Give me a few minutes,”
As Sky followed Reece into the station, everyone stopped what they were doing to stare at her. It had been a while since she had been there and her face still had to heal properly. Sky knew they were thinking that it was Axel who was beating her.
“Do I not get a hello anymore?” She asked making them grin, “Or is it because I’m fucking the enemy?”
“Sky,” Reece said, “Go to interrogation room 5,”
A few of the cops smacked Sky's hand as she made her way through the building and a few new faces stared at her with wide eyes but she didn’t have the energy to explain who she was. A cop looked up from his phone when she approached and his hand went to his baton.
“Who are you? You shouldn’t be back here,” He said, “Leave before I arrest you,”
Sky rolled her eyes, “There would be serious changes if I was the captain here,”
“Wait,” He said, “I know you! You are Skyla Channing,”
“Wow,” He said, “I didn’t think you would look like that. I mean that in no offence. From the stories we heard about you from the academy, we all thought you were much taller and had bigger muscles,”
“Well, now you know what I look like, so excuse me,”
“But that doesn’t mean I can let you go any further,” He said, “You are no longer part of the police force and you are now on the wrong side. If you don’t want to be arrested, you should turn around,”
“I don’t have time for this. If you try to arrest me, you will be on your ass quicker than you can grab your cuffs,” Sky said, “So take a shot,”
The cop hesitated, “You think I’m scared of you? Everyone knows your story. You pretended to be a whore and ended up fucking around The Red Devils. So, you became a whore and quit being a cop so you could be a criminal alongside Axel Dalton. You help them cover up their murders and you still fuck-ugh!”
Sky throat slammed the cop into the wall behind him and grabbed his baton, pressing it hard against his dick, his eyes wide, “Call me a whore, one more time,” She spoke softly, but the cop knew better to open his mouth again, “Let’s get one thing clear before I hear more rumours float out of your disrespectful mouth. I am no whore. I did pretend to be a hooker so I could get to the bottom of my best friends murder and yes, I did quit my job,”
The cop gulped and looked over her shoulder, his eyes going wider. Sky glanced at who he was staring at and held in a sigh.
She turned her attention back to the cop, “You are also right about me fucking Axel but you are wrong about me covering up their murders. Reece, you should teach your cops to keep their mouths shut when they don’t know what they are talking about,”
“You can let him go now,” Reece said and Sky stepped away, handing the cop his baton back.
“The rookies need more training,” Sky muttered and walked towards the interrogation room.
“True, but then again, no one is up to your level Sky,” Reece said with a chuckle, “Not even Jason who finished at the top of his classes,”
“Why is he here?” Sky asked, looking at the other man following at a short distance.
“Unfortunately, I couldn’t keep him away,” Reece said, “After the incident with Hugo, my boss has been on my ass. He wanted to speak with you but I told him it probably wasn’t a good idea,”
“I hate him so much,”
“You aren’t the only one,” Reece said pushing the door open for Sky, “Take your time. You have everything you need. We will be on the other side of the glass. I’ll send someone to give you water,”
Sky thanked him and couldn’t help but smile when she saw Chelzi sitting on the chair filing her nails, “My day keeps getting better,”
“At last!” Chelzi said rushing over to hug her, “Do you have any idea how annoying cops are? Oh, wait. You do. You were a cop,”
“Don’t I know it,” Sky laughed, “Let’s sit. Reece said I had to sketch someone for you,”
Chelzi nodded, “We can save that for another time. We should chat. How have you been? Still having problems with Axel?”
Sky sighed, “I will always have problems with him,”
“Did you want me to kick his ass?” Chelzi said lifting her fists into the air, “I could hurt him for you,”
“No, don’t worry about him,” Sky said, “We should probably save this chat for another time,”
“Oh, I see,” Chelzi nodded and leaned back in her chair, “Don’t want your old boss to know how often you have sex? Or that you had Axel and-”
“Ok!” Sky said, quickly, “Not the time for that. Reece said a body was found and you are a witness,”
“Did you want to tell me what he or she looked like so I can sketch?” Sky asked, spinning the pencil in her hand.
Chelzi shifted in her seat, “I know who the victim was,”
“Who was it?”
“You know...sorry, you knew her as well,” Chelzi said quietly, “Do you remember the first time we met? You came backstage after dancing and that girl tried to insult you?”
“There were a few girls trying to do that,”
“Yes, but this girl had her claws in Nico,” She said and his name made me shudder, “The girl was Ali,”
“Holy shit,” Sky said, “You saw her get killed didn’t you?”
Chelzi nodded and picked at her nails, “Sky, she wasn’t killed. She was slaughtered"
“Tell me what they looked like. I can-”
“You don’t need to,” Chelzi whispered and looked up at Sky with tears in her eyes, “It was Finley Dalton,”
