Accused Of Murder

Emery's being accused of murder

I watched Carlos lift himself from his chair, his feet shuffling himself around the cramped room. I could feel my smirk stretch, irritating Carlos even more.

"We have no evidence. Of you or anyone else being at fault. The chief-" Carlos let out a deep sigh, running a calloused hand through his graying hair.

"I know the logic doesn't work, but it's the only thing we've got." I turned my eyes to my old guardian. He gave me a pleading look, which I pointedly ignored.

"I want my lawyer." Was all that left my mouth before the door was being slammed.
