Chapter 1

Lilly's POV

I sat in the bathtub as the water from the showerhead went down on my body. I could really careless about it right now. After what happened back at work, it didn't even matter.

How could I have been so stupid enough to go there by myself? I was this close to getting him to confess. But, the tables were turned when he went on about my 49. I couldn't believe he knew that. I still couldn't believe he had the nerve to look through all of our files.

I got out of the shower and dried myself off and threw on flannel pajamas and an old t-shirt. I looked myself in the mirror and I was paler then before. I sighed, knowing that tomorrow I would have to face work yet again.

I walked into my bedroom where my cats, Olivia and Tripod greeted me. I smiled at them sadly as I walked towards my bed. I laid on my bed, staring into space as Olivia cuddled next to me and started purring right afterward as I drifted off to sleep.


I heard my cell phone going off the next morning. I opened one eye to grabbed my phone. I sat up and stretched and yawned as my eyes blinked furiously, trying to open. Who in hell would call me at this time?

I looked at my phone which said 'Stillman' calling.


"Lilly, hey, just checking to see how you were doing after well, you know, last night."

"What can I say really I'm fine really so what's up?" I asked.

"Well I just wanted you to know that if you want, you can have today off if you really want to you know.."

"I know Boss, but I want to go in, I mean we could have an unsolved case in our hands and I'm needed there." I said.

I heard Boss sigh on the other end. "Alright fine, if for some reason you crack, I'm sending you home."

"Okay, no problem." I said and hung up. I laid back on my bed and closed my eyes. I know today would be very interesting.


I almost ran down the street, trying to get there on time. I know its hardly a thing for me to be late but as I was heading inside I heard someone calling my name. I stop abruptly and turned and saw my partner Scotty Valens jogging towards me. Scotty has been my partner and best friend since his first day here. If I could go ahead and give you a description of him, I would go on forever.

"Hi Scotty" I said quietly feeling a blush coming on my cheeks. Yeah I have a massive crush on him as well.

"Hey Lil' I didn't expect to see you here" he said.

"Really didn't feel like sitting at home, plus you'll never know what case we have to reopen" I replied as we got into the building.

"I hardly doubt we'll get any today, then again, you never know" he replied. I shrugged as we walked down the hall. There's something there in Scotty's eyes sometimes that I can't quite place.


We walked into the break room and grabbed mugs to get out coffee. I poured some coffee into my mug when Vera and Jeffries came in.

"Morning boys" I said.

"Mornin' Lil' does Boss know you're here?" Vera asked.

"Yeah, he insisted I should stay home, but we sort made a deal" I said.

"And that is…"

"I breakdown or crack as he calls it, I go home" I said.

"Are you sure? I mean after what happened last night…" Vera started to say but I held my hand up to stop him.

"I'm fine. Yes, I'm still in shock from what happened with George but I'm fine see" I said with a fake smile on my face. They don't need to know how I'm actually feeling.

"Okay, okay, we get it" he grumbled.

I rolled my eyes and made my way to my desk. When I sat down and was looking through paperwork that needed to be filled out, I couldn't help but look over at the observation room. Where it all went down with me and him. I sighed heavily and picked up a folder which I started filling out.


It was a little after two in the afternoon and I was still filing out paperwork. No new case hasn't come in yet as far as I know. Vera went out to get lunch for everyone while Will was talking to Boss in his office about something and as for Scotty, every time I looked over at him, I could've sworn he was looking back. Like he was watching me, waiting for me to crack.

I was to engrossed in what's front of me when Vera's voice interrupted me.

"Hey, Lil someone here to see you. Wants to talk to you about something" he said.

I looked up and saw a middle aged woman standing by. She looked like she was in her mid-forties, her long brown hair was down and a little disarrayed. I stood up from my desk and walked over and I could feel those familiar eyes watching me again.

"Can I help you?" I asked the woman.

"You do cold cases is that correct?" she asked me.

"Yes I do, I'm Detective Rush and this is my partner Detective Valens," I said as Scotty walked over towards us.

"I was hoping if you could reopen a case for me" she said.

"And your name is?" Scotty asked.

"Oh sorry, I'm Alice. Alice Chase" she replied.

"Well Alice can you give a description of this case?" I asked her getting out my pad and pen.

"Basically, it happened around almost twenty-three years ago. It was when my younger sister died. You see, I was the middle child and I have an older brother as well. This week would've been my sister, Alex's death anniversary and my mother just passed away recently." Alice was telling us.

"Is there anything we should know about Alex?" I asked.

"I believe that my sister didn't die on accident. I think she was killed" she said.

"Do you know who?" Scotty asked her.

"Not really, it was my mother's final wish to see that Alex's death would be brought to justice once and for all" Alice said as her voice almost started to crack.

"We'll see what we can do" I said.

"If there is anything, let me know" Alice said and she got up and walked out of the precinct.
