|Hell on earth starts in a small town called Eden Hills.|
A black and blue police cruiser moved steadily down Main street, the lettering on the door read “Eden Hills Police Department. Mary Holloway drove the cruiser while wiping blood off her face with a large wad of tissues. Sitting behind her was her prisoner. He was a tall man, slightly lanky, but good looking. He had jet black hair that was short and a goatee that was just as dark. The man was very calm and quiet he almost seemed to be sedated, but Mary knew better. He had his face right up to the metal mesh that separated them. She could hear his rhythmic breathing slow and without urgency. That was the worst part of this whole ordeal, the way this man acted. Mary looked into the rearview and saw his pale orange eyes staring directly at her through two of the little diamonds, curious and caged like those of some animal. “Hey! Why don't you sit back? Take it easy we've got a twenty minuet drive back to the station.” Mary took her eyes away from his witch were very beautiful and yet dangerous and tossed the bloody tissue to the floorboard. The prisoner chuckled and sat back slowly saying. “We're not going to make it to the station, Detective Holloway." Mary Holloway, a homicide detective for E.H.P.D here in Eden Hills, came into work that morning like every other morning. She walked in and went straight to the coffee pot and took down her cup from the cupboard. This wasn't a town things really happened in. There was some burglary here and some mugging there, and even once they'd had a rape. Since Mary was transferred here seven years ago their wasn't one murder. So much can change in a day. Richard walked into the break room as Mary mixed the cream and sugar into her coffee. He was the best desk cop in the department. He walked over to Mary holding a folder visibly flustered. “What's up Dick?” Mary asked before taking a sip of coffee. He pushed his glasses up. “In your office. We'll talk about it.” Mary shrugged and led him into her office setting her cup down on her desk, she took off her jacket and hung it on the wall hook. Richard came in shutting the door behind him and sat down across from her. Once Mary was settled behind her desk he pushed the folder at her as though it were something hot and scolding. “Chief told me to keep this on the level. He doesn't want media involvement if at all possible.” She opened the folder. Large photographs assaulted her eyes. What she could tell before Richard said anything was; It was a woman, shot at close range at least three times, college student. Richard began. “Amanda Kingston. Age, 27. Local student at Eden university. Found in the rest stop outside of town by Lesher and Jensen at approximately 4:40 a.m. Cause of death, four 38calibur gun shots, multiple broken bones, and mutilation.” Mary came to the last picture and dropped it. The picture was a close up of the girl's back, carved into her skin was a verse it read. “Take a big bite and fall in to your sin. Take a big bite so I can finally win. Eat out your soul and then there's no return. Take a big bite and watch Eden burn.” “Cute.” Mary said closing the folder and picking up her cup for a sip. Richard just shrugged and shook his head. “Have her parents been notified?” Mary asked. Richard pushed his glasses up again. “Um-yes. Mr. and Mrs. Kingston are with the body right now.” Mary nodded. “Would you have them come see me before they go?” “Certainly.” Richard answered and got up to leave he then stopped and looked back to Mary who had opened the folder again. “Anything else?” She looked up from the photos. “Yeah get me Lesher and Jensen's report.” Richard opened the door. “You got it.” and he was gone. Mary took another drink of coffee then said aloud. “Eat out your soul and then there's no return, Take a big bite and watch Eden burn.” Mary spoke to Amanda's parents. Mrs. Kingston did most the talking because Mr. Kingston always excused himself behind his handkerchief. They couldn't believe their daughter was dead, couldn't think of any one, not one single person who didn't like her. Mary did jot down the name Brian Kelly, also a student at eden university and Amanda's boyfriend. About ten minuets after the Kingston's left Mary's office, Richard rapped on the door jam. Mary waved him in and set aside the police report filed by Lesher and Jensen. “What do you got?” Mary asked. Richard plopped down in the chair across from her and held up a peace sign. “Murder number two.” Fifteen minutes later Mary pulled in front of the co-ed dormitory at eden university. She stepped out of her cruiser straitening her dark blue jacket over her white blouse. She then adjusted her shoulder holster witch held her nine millimeter automatic under her left arm. Mary walked up to the blue suite standing at the entrance to the dorms, as she approached he said. “Second floor Click here to read the rest of this story (244 more lines)
