TITLE: Death by High Heals
"What the hell did you hit him with?"
"Your shoe? Damn it Lindsay, you can't kill someone with a shoe."
"Hello, they're Via Spiga pumps."
"Ugh." I rolled my eyes.
A man sat, unmoving in a chair, with his back towards us.
"Stay put." I walked across the room and stopped in front of the chair. I wasn't sure which was worse, the smell or view of his organs spilled out onto his lap.
"Tell me again what happened?"
"I told you, he was sitting in that chair when I got home. I took off my shoe and hit him in the back of the head and then I ran over to your place."
"Then you don't know how he got this big hole in his chest?"
"What? No, I swear. I hit him and ran."
"Come over here and see if you recognize him."
"Gross, no way."
"Quit being a coward and get your a** over here."
"A coward? Did you just call me a coward because I don't want to look at some dead guy?"
"Just get over here."
"Freeze, Aurora Falls Police."
"Ah hell." I muttered. "Hey Duncan."
"Kim Murphy, is that you? Oh man the Chief's not gonna like this."
"Yeah well, I'm not too thrilled myself."
"The chief?" Lindsay asked.
"The chief of police, he's my dad."
"I take it you're Miss Pembrook?"
"And that's the dead guy over there? You sure he's dead?"
"Yeah that's him and he's definitely dead."
