Detective Knight

Grey matter1 was all over the passenger side of Detective Knight’s squad car. He was angry2. His partner was gone and the shooter wasn’t getting away.

He followed the trail to a lighthouse3. He strapped on his Kevlar vest4 and handcuffs5. Placing his police shield6 on his vest, he wondered why he was taking the time at all. Knight reminded himself that this wasn’t some movie7 where people took a whole clip of bullets and kept getting back up.

Entering the lighthouse, he moved up the stairs. As he neared the entrance to a middle level, he felt some dust fall on his head8. Someone was waiting. Knight waited a moment to listen for footsteps. He heard them move away from the stairwell.

Rushing up the remaining stairs, he pointed his gun9 in the direction of the sound and pulled the trigger.
