Chapter 1

Alex sat in the visitors room in nothing but his white vest and shorts. There was handcuffs on his wrists, as he sat with a gloomy look on his face. Kate sat in front of him. She was dressed in white shirt and black skirt. Her hand was above Alex's on the table. Alex had tears in his eyes. Last night had not been good for him. His wife had been murdered and he was being blamed for her death.

"I did not do it, Kate. I swear. I did not do it," Alex cried. He was desperately trying to get Kate to believe him. But, Kate believed him, that was why she was there to support and defend him.

"I believe you. But, I need to get enough evidence to get others to believe you as well. You know Shirley's mother is on this case as well and wants to do everything in her power to get you prosecuted for this, right?"

Alex nodded. Shirley's mother, Justice Olivia Newman, never agreed to Shirley's and Alex's relationship. She always thought Alex was with shirley because of her money, even though he had proved countless times that he genuinely loved Shirley. So when Shirley died she felt this was the time to completely nail Alex to the wall. Alex never insulted or verbally abuse the woman but she still kept on hating him.

"So, what do I do now?" Alex asked,his hands clasped together on the table.

"Just tell me what happened that night. What really happened?"

Alex sighed as he thought of the events that night.

"Shirley and I had a serious argument that night. It got to a point where I almost hit her. But, I controllled myself and left the house. I drove around town and came back a little around midnight. I rushed up to our bedroom, and discovered her body on the bed with a knife stuck in her belly. The police got there immediately after that and arrested me. I told them everything, but they still did not believe me."

Kate wrote down something in the journal she was holding.

"What was the argument about?"

Alex hesitated for a while. He knew the answer might not help the situation but he could not lie to his best friend.

"It was...it was about you, Kate. She said she wanted me to choose between my child and you. I am sorry."

Kate felt a sudden feel of regret hit her. She should not have asked that question when the answer was very obvious. Alex had told her once about how Shirley had started getting jealous of how she and Alex were close. But Kate had always known her boundaries and was not always around Alex like they used to when they were children.

"I am so sorry that you had another argument about me again. I don't know why your wife never liked me when all I did was to be nice to her."

Alex was sad. He could sense Kate was probably beating up herself over this. He really did not want her to feel this way. But, he had to tell her the truth as her client.
