Wolf Girl 22
Therian suddenly felt threatened. Being alone in the room with a mad old man was one thing... Being alone with this man was something entirely different. There was something hidden behind that smile. Something dark. But she couldn't place her finger on it.
She should leave. That would be the smart thing to do. But he did just save her the trouble of a long interrogation... A few minutes couldn't hurt.
"I guess no one will miss me for a few minutes..." She relaxed in the chair. "You said you had a question for me?"
"Oh yes... how's your eye?" he asked casually. Therian froze, only a few people had seen it. People that wouldn't talk because they would have to answer questions that they had rather not.
"How did you-"
"You think Janie would keep something like that from me?" He smirked. "It was a week ago today wasn't it? I'm sure that it took a lot of makeup to cover it up... a shiner like that is hard to miss in a crime scene... I thought you were as tough or tougher then Janie. Guess I was wrong-"
"I gave her back as good as I got."
"Is that a confession?"
"Hardly Mr. Billings." She smirked.
Jack sighed and leaned back in his chair. She wondered what his next blow would be... Leaving would be the smart choice right now...
She stood up and he let her walk to the door before calling out.
"Miss Wolf, I do have one other question..." She stopped not turning around.
"What did you hear while you were back there?"
She paused for a moment then answered, "Nothing that would make you look like a killer."
"Are you sure?"
"As long as you don't make me look like one.." She strode through the door knowing that was the worst move to make... She could feel him glare on her as she shut the door behind her.
