Last we left off Valentina was brought a body that Detective Brown had thought was some product in cannibalism but Valentina thought otherwise. She knew this person did eat this man and and that’s how he missing all his blood. No someone drank his blood. She wanted to see what Hernandez thought about this. She gave him a call to meet him at the room of the man thought to have done all this damage.
Now we are on Chapter 2 I skipped ahead a bit
***note this snippet is to fit a 8-10 sentence limit***
I went a bit longer so we can get back into this story again.


“The guy is crazy,” Hernandez told her. You might want to let me handle this, he’s dangerous.”
Hernandez was tall, muscled and could definitely handle his own if it came down to a fistfight. There were also armed guards posted outside the suspect’s room and the guy was cuffed to the bed.
“Well of course he’s dangerous,” she said. “Come in the room with me. If he tries anything, I’m sure you’ll be able to stop the guy.”
Hernandez cursed under his breath, but he finally caved. “Fine, but let me speak to the officers first.” He motioned to the guards. “No one’s suppose to go in or out of the suspect’s room unless given the okay by Detective Brown.”
Valentina nodded and watched Hernandez walk over to the officers on guard.
What in the world could he have been saying to them? Oh hello there officers, my friend believes your suspect may really be a vampire and she wants to go check him out. Would that be okay?
