Chapter 3 – Louise's POV
I'd managed to arrest the Jetstar intruder, but only after chasing her right through the airport. I understood after I'd interrogated her that afternoon, why my superiors wanted me to wait till the WA police got in contact with us, because she hadn't sent the picture to the Jetstar office in Perth; and since the WA police were overloaded in cases lately they wouldn't get our picture in time, even if we sent it to them as a priority case.
As I was about to head home that evening, I was stopped by Allison.
"Louise, can we talk?"
"Sure Allison, what's up? I'm not in trouble again am I?"
"Are you ever not in trouble with the Feds?"
"Yeah I always am" I joked.
"Only sometimes Louise, only sometimes, but that's not the point," she replied. "You've been promoted."
"To what Deputy-Commissioner?"
"No, you're the new Special Agent. Fredric's been promoted to, but he's heading back to the Queensland Police Force; before you ask."
"How did you know I'd ask?"
"Because Fredric is your partner."
"Yes he is, and you should've let him tell me."
"He asked me to Louise."
"Oh." I couldn't understand why he hadn't told me, we depended on each other to stay alive each day and now he was just leaving me, and he wouldn't tell me.
"Has he left yet, I mean today?"
"He left after you left, to arrest the Jetstar intruder."
"He's been avoiding me, letting me work this case on my own. Even though he out ranks me."
"It has always been your case Louise, since you started the job. Aaron knew that, it was right for him to let you take the lead."
"He should've." I felt like I was going to cry, what was I even doing. I didn't cry. A good cop didn't cry if they wanted to be a good cop; but it wasn't the cop that was crying. It was the girl in me, the one that was in love with Aaron that was crying.
Allison grabbed my shoulder and made me face her, "Louise was something else going on between you and Fredric, other than the job."
"Did you love him, were you sleeping together?" what made Allison a good superior was that she would ask simple questions to get to the truth, and she'd do it to her officers to if she had to.
"Yes we were sleeping together. Yes I loved him; but I don't think he loved me."
"Louise, I don't want you coming into work tomorrow okay. I'll lead your case tomorrow, and I'll call you only if I really need you to come in."
"But, this is my case. You just said that."
"I know and that's why you need to trust me on this. Now go home call you Dad or your brother and get some sleep."
"Will do Allison." I replied as I left the building and headed out to the car park. My lime green mini coupe, awaited me. It had been a graduation gift from my Dad, when I graduated from law school. I loved it and would never trade it for another car, no matter how good. It suited me perfectly.
I arrived home in a huff, still mad at Aaron for deciding to go back to Queensland and not tell me. Pretty much getting Allison to tell me that we had broken up. He was a perp, didn't even have the guts to break up with me, himself. I pulled into the driveway of my townhouse, which I shared with my best friend Emma. Emma worked from home as an author and book editor; and loved to joke that I was her toughest critic.
As I opened the front door Emma instantly grabbed me and pulled me into the kitchen.
"Emma what do you want. I just want to go to bed and skype James, right now."
"Aaron is in the lounge room, he wants to talk to you."
"He could've done that earlier, and come with me to arrest the jetstar intruder with me, but he didn't. Tell him that and that I never want to see his face ever again. Now I'm going to bed, to skype with my little brother," I answered and headed back into the hall way and upstairs to my bedroom and slammed the door behind me. I sunk down behind the door and started to cry. I heard yelling downstairs and then the front door slamming and then Emma knocking on me bedroom door.
"Louise can I come in please?"
"No" I whimpered.
"Louise please. I know what happened, can we please talk about this."
I reached up and opened the door and let Emma in. Emma slipped in and slumped down on the floor next to me and gave me a big hug, which it was clear that I needed.
"I agree with you he is an idiot" Emma consoled.
"Why didn't he tell me that he was leaving me? Why did he leave it up to Allison; he doesn't love me, if he did he would've told me that it was over. We could've talked and tried to make it work between us."
"Well I don't think he wanted it to work, he isn't going back to Queensland."
"What?!" I fretted.
"He's going to Liverpool; to work undercover…they told you Queensland so that you thought he was just leaving."
"So is he still breaking up with me, and why is everyone lying to me. I hate liars."
"He's still breaking up with you Loui. I'm sorry and I know, I hate liars as much as you do." Loui was nickname only Emma and my immediate family used for me. Emma had started it, we'd been friends since we were toddlers and she couldn't get around Louise, so she started calling me Loui and it stuck; and since Emma was part of my family and we'd spent many Christmases together she'd gotten most of my immediate family to call me Loui to.
"I need to go back into work; I need to talk to Allison. She wasn't telling me the truth, she would've known."
"Aaron said she didn't, it was just between him and the Commissioner."
