The heavy rain made the visibility much harder to see the man that Marc was chasing through the city streets. The sidewalks were slick with water pouring into the street. The chase started after a failed attempt on killing Marc, who had no clue why this man wanted to kill him. But then again, he could think of several reasons. They ran twisting and turning through alleys and then back into the streets on different parts of town. “STOP!” Marc yelled at the man. The man kept running.
The man kept his distance from the detective. Marc was only able to catch a glimpse of the mans feet as they turned around corners. Marc was out of breath as they stopped in front of an old abandoned apartment complex. “You have no where left to run, buddy,” Marc said to the dark figure. “Come on and get me, Marc. You’re right where I want you!” The man turned and ran into the building and slammed the door shut.
Marc swore to himself as he ran up the stairs leading to the closed door. Marc reached down and turned the handle. The door was unlocked. The man he was chasing was toying with him. The building was dark. There was no light except for what little the street lights outside gave out in the rain, which wasn’t nearly enough to depend on. Directly in front of Marc was a long hallway with six doors. Three on each side. Marc moved to the first door and kicked it open.
“ You can run,” Marc said, “but you can’t hide. I will find you.” He walked out of the first room and moved to the second door. Just like the first, that room was empty. He kicked in the third door. And walked in quietly with his revolver drawn out. “Where are you?” Marc whispered to himself. He turned to leave. As he turned around he found himself face to face with a masked stranger. “Here,” he said. The blow on Marc’s head knocked him unconscious.

June 20, 1925.

Two of the stones that Sully and I had been looking for had been found. We were now missing three, and they could be anywhere in the world. I lit up a cigar and reclined in my desk chair. Sully sat across from me, and did the same thing and we spent the better part of the rest of the afternoon, reviewing the case notes.

"Marc," Sully spoke up.


"I think Mrs. Von Schmidt has been holding out on us. I think she knows where at least one stone is."

"What makes you say that?" I asked.

"She's already kept stuff from us once, and she was the one who told us about the Heart to begin with."

It was a good thought. "Let's go check her out," I said.

We pulled up into the driveway and parked just behind her car and she met us in the driveway.

"Detectives," she said sounding surprised. "How can I help you?"

As quick as lightning, Sully grabbed her and drug her into her house, and I followed with out a word.

"Mam, we have reason to believe you know where we could find one of the five stones, that complete the Heart of Anubis."


Interrupted,. "Mam, the sooner you tell us the faster we'll be out of here."

"I don't-"


Sully fired his pistol and the bullet whizzed by her head. It was intentional move, to scare her.

"Sully!" I yelled, "Are you crazy?!"

"No. She knows, and she's going to tell us where it is. I know its in here," he said. " I can feel it."
