May, 1988 Two girls sit on a bench outside on a balcony looking up at the stars. They were brunettes of about early teenage years. "Do yu ever think that we'll find a home?" Christina Silver asks.
Leia Saber shrugged. "I have no idea. Being in Foster Care sucks, I admit, but you know that adults prefer those younger cuter kids. Usually the people who pick us up are scum bags."
Christina nodded. "I know. But-"
"Hey!" One of the guardians called. It was the chief guardian. "What are you two doing out there?"
"We were-" Christina began, but never finished as the guardian cut her off.
"Get back inside now! Before I send you to the fishing room." As he said that, he had a sly smile on his face. The two girls looked at each other, sighed then went back in. The guardian closed the door."
Two weeks later
Leia laid on the ground, dead as someone dug her grave. Her face was bloodied from the gun shot that had taken her life.
Every few years, a girl would wind up dead and buried. Then reported missing. Their cases resided in the cold room where dust collected.
Lisa Hazelton sat on the balcony looking out. She hated her life here. It was worse than the constant heat in Florida. Much worse. She looked up when she heard someone coming. She knew it was one of the guardians; no one else came out here unless they felt the urge to get some air. She immediately headed for the railing. People were walking by, and that was good. Now, she could exploit what was going on, but she needed teh Cold Case Squad down here. They were the only people who would believe her in what was going on. Not to mention the fact that she held the answers to some of their colds.
"What the-" the guardian began when he saw Lisa standing on the railing.
"You want to force me in? Or do I jump?" Lisa asked. She saw one of the girls below her pick up her cell phone. Good, finally the secret will be out.
