The PERFECT imperfections
”Nooo ” thirteen years old René screamed while looking down the cliff where a car had just suffered a very terrible accident.
She immediately ran to the edge of the cliff and stopped as for the scene shown before her pair of dark eyes. Everywhere around the car was caught up in flames as the fire men tries to extinguish it from up there.
She took several steps forward until her right foot was dangling on air, just then the towns sheriff and two paramedics stopped her from going any further by dragging her back. She fought through the strong arms with the aim of joining the death ride.
”No please let me go ” René screamed in a high pitched voice.
”Hey ” the sheriff whispered then took her in his warm embrace.
”What happened to them, are they alright? Please let me go meet them they
e in danger ” she whispered back to the sheriff with whom shes familiar with.
”Im sorry kiddo but you can . They
e gone ” he replied in a husky but shaky voice holding back the urge to let a tear escape from his blue eyes. Slowly he backed away and said ”if I leave now promise you won do anything stupid ” he squatted down to her hight and pinned her with his gaze. Slowly but surely she nodded and the well known man stood to his full hieght with his hands on either side of her shoulders.
She turned back though her eyes were still plastered on the hazardous car which had obviously suffered a great deal of somersaults and eventually landed upside down with the windows broken. Suddenly the car exploded with a boom and was shattered into a million pieces right in front of her tear stained face. Right then she knew there was no chance of survival.
She faced front not able to look again and walked with officer Wells by her side hand in hand. It also gave her time to now notice her vicinity, closely studying everywhere. First the fire men are trying all they could to stop the new fire from spreading across the forest trees.
The paramedics are treating the injured pedestrians who had just been lucky enough to get out of the way before the car could hit them.
And also the police and detectives are both trying to get statement from the pedestrians about what happened.
René came to a halt to tired and depressed to continue and sat on the floor. Before pulling her knees close to her chest and wrapping her arms around it. She stared into space while tunning out all the noise while going through her memories. A crowd had already gathered, luckily the police taped everywhere as a crime scene and did thier best to stop the nosy citizens from intruding.
Officer Wells looked at her with sympathy and hurt in his eyes then left her alone to go talk with his colleges. He knew she needed sometime alone. i hope everything turns out for you he thought as he stood in front of his long time friend lieutenant Shea.
They both did high school and went to NYU and got a degree in criminal and both decided to be a cop. Lieutenant Shea was jealous of his best friend but never in his life has he envied him. why wouldn anybody envy him, Casper Wells was the perfect cop, perfect son, perfect husband, perfect student, perfect father. He had everything that Shea couldn have but to only dream of having it. The only flaw he had was his temper, it wasn bad enough to kill or hurt someone but he could say things that wasn meant to be said out loud.
Even though lieutenant Shea had gone to the army and Wells didn , in a way Wells was better. It was clear and everyone knew it.
”Wow that kid must be taking it real hard huh? ” Lieutenant Shea inquired.
”Yeah ” Casper responded quietly sad about his loss.
”Cheer up, look Im sorry but you have to stay strong at least if not for yourself but for her ” without looking he pointed to where Renés body is. ”She needs all the support she can get ” he offered Wells a smile and he returned it but it wasn reaching his eyes.
”No problem ” though Wells was better than Shea, Shea never took it against Wells. They both st
