Thought I’d come back to this story since my story just released and it’s out all by itself on paperback. Plus Day of the day is tomorrow. Enjoy.
Valentina is left with feelings she doesn’t want to believe are true about her and Xander for fear is could make things difficult in their work place and friendship. Now a dead body has come in to the morgue. This body was drained of blood and the suspect well was human and the way the body was drained was not something anything a human could do.

I went a bit longer so we can get back into this story again.


“What did this?” Valentina asked with curiosity.

“You mean who did this? said Detective Brown.

“Wait. What? ” She looked up and met the detective’s gaze.

“We have the guy upstairs. We found him with the body with blood all over his face. We’re assuming he’s the one who did this. Thought you could take a look at his teeth and the marks on the body to verify it. We also need to know if this person was dead before the guy started well…eating him. Is it murder or do we need to have psych evaluation.”

“Wouldn’t he need one no matter the case?” She lifted one eyebrow.

He gave her a grim smile. “Yes, he would.”

She turned back to the body. “I’ll send somebody up to take an impression of the man’s teeth. Then give me a day or two. I’ll have the results if the victim was alive or dead.”

“No worries. Our suspect is upstairs with Hernandez, getting tested for rabies and anything else that could have caused him to eat another human being. I’ll let him know you need those impressions pronto. We’ll be in touch.”
