Infectis- Chapter ?

March 10, 2018

It was her turn to be startled. She relaxed and smiled when she saw it was Parker.

“Breaking and entering. My, my, how we’ve moved up in the world. Or is that down?”

“I need to find him.”

“I told you, he’s not coming.”

She removed her earrings and set them in a ceramic dish by the answering machine. Parker wondered why people still had those. But then he also knew people like her and the one he sought weren’t likely to give out their cellphone numbers to anyone.

“You love him, don’t you? Do you see how ridiculous that is?”

“Do you even know what love is? I mean, really is?”

She gazed at him in the mirror. He moved a bit closer behind. Light from outside the Jersey City apartment shone in, placing bright, distorted rectangles on the tile floor.

“You think it matters?”

“No, I suppose not.”

He looked down, sadness seeming to take him once again.

“But it’s time you found out.”

He caught her before she even really started to crumple. The taser was still strapped to his wrist, but he wouldn’t need it.

One way or another, she was going to take him to the man who had destroyed his life. He pulled the handcuffs from his jacket and started securing her.
