Remember a meme, long ago, where I offered drabbles to anyone as long as they were in a fandom in my userinfo "likes" list?
Me neither. But I found this almost-double-drabble in amongst my school books (I think the one I found it in was my maths/legal/english book, but the real question is, which year?) and it's not something I'd write myself or for myself or without prompting. Process of elimination means a challenge or meme, and since I've resolved to not let myself undergo any more challenges (look how the last one turned out) it must be a meme.
Christ. I babble when I listen to Savage Garden.
Anyway. A drabble about Captain Jim Brass of CSI.
He hoped the Grissom was informed enough to send Warrick. Not Nick. Or Sara. Or even Catherine. If he was honest with himself, he knew even Warrick would have trouble with this scene – Grissom himself would be best.
Sophia Cannel, aged twenty-seven, lay spread-eagled on her daughter’s bed, naked from the waist down and skirt bunched around her stomach. Her daughter lay under the bed, her pretty sunflower-yellow dress ripped to the bottom hem. Her underwear was on the floor, covered in blood.
Nick wasn’t the best person to send to a scene involving a six-year-old and sexual assault. Catherine wasn’t the best to send to any scene involving a blond child and a suspicious male parent. And Sara was never the best person to send on any sexual assault case, period – especially when the victim’s husband was the last to see her alive.
Captain Jim Brass stepped gingerly over the threshold of the bedroom as he heard another car pull up outside.
He left David with the daughter as he stepped outside of the house proper and saw Sara exit the Jeep Cherokee. Nick waved at him from the passenger’s seat.
