Lt. William Harold Ryan stepped out of his black on black, no chrome, no looks, no class, department provided, 96 Crown Victoria and stretched his arms skyward. It never changes 5:30 AM is always 5:30 AM, and his body still lets him know that it would have enjoyed a few more hours of sleep.
'Well, Billy Boy, what do you think today will bring?' He asked himself as he felt the muscles in his back resisting the stretching and felt them protesting it as well.
The one thing about being a Homicide Detective was that it was never dull. In the past years he had seen the worst that humanity could do to itself.
'I guess that is what keeps me young,' he thought, as he turned toward the curb and started walking towards the main entrance of the Precinct House. Nineteen years of service, with the last ten years having been spent walking through the doors that he now approached.
ordered to break up a boring day. The teapot is in the kitchen if you follow me I'll show it to you.'
With that Peggy turned her back on a stranger for the last time in her life.
Allen pulled the stun gun out of his coat pocket and stepped behind Peggy saying 'You have a beautiful home here' just as he pressed the stun gun against her right side and pressed the trigger. The blue arc of voltage hit her like a bolt of lighting and Peggy dropped to the floor like a sack of sand.
Allen grabbed her by the wrists and pulled her into the kitchen. He was not happy, the kitchen had a tile floor and the hall going back towards the rest of the apartment also was of tile. He dropped her wrists and stormed into the kitchen to see if the attached dining area was wood or tile floors. The dining area was highly polished oak flooring and this made him smile. Allen rushed back and grabbed Peggy by the wrists again and dragged her into the dining area pushing a chair and the table to one side with his backside.
Allen took his first good look at Peggy Falkner and was quite surprised at how attractive she was. He hurried back into the hall and retrieved his bag that had fallen when he grabbed Peggy's arms to pull her. He got his knife out of the bag while walking back to where Peggy lay. When he got back to her he flipped his wrist and the knife snapped open with a resounding click. Bending over her he placed the blade under the front of her blouse and cut her blouse, bra, and belt in half in one quick motion. He then cut down each sleeve of the blouse and each leg of her slacks, cutting panties and slacks in half allowing him to remove all of her clothing with little, if any effort.
