Callie rang the doorbell. No answer, as usual.
She turned the handle, it opened so she went in.
"Hello," she yelled.
"Don't move!" She turned around and there was this girl, only twelve, holding a gun.
"Whoa, whoa. Who are you?"
"I live here, now what are you doing here?"
"My, well, friend lives here, he always leaves the door unlocked when he's home." Come on, she can't be a robber. She is too young and well dressed.
"My uncle lives here, he doesn't date married woman." My eyes darted down to my hand, I wasn't wearing my ring.
"Jim and I aren't not dating, and I'm not wearing a ring."
"A crease forms around your finger after a certain amount of time. There is also a tan-line."
"You're going to be a detective, like your uncle." I was trying to keep calm but this kid was for real.
"How about we call him, get him here and sort this out."
"Fine, grab your phone, slowly."
I did as she told me.
"Hello," she cut me off. "Put it on speaker."
"Jim, there is a girl with a gun in your living room and I was just wondering if you could come and sort this out."
"Meralle, put the gun down. Not everyone is a criminal. I will be there in a few minutes." He hung up and she put her phone in her purse.
When he got there, towing Carlos behind him, he took the gun from her.
"Hey, that is mine." The girl whined.
"I put this in the safe." Jim said as he walked towards me.
"You okay?" He asked.
"Yeah. Just a little curios as to why she had a gun."
"You and me both." Carlos said, speaking for the first time."Okay, so this is Meralle, my niece. Her mom is undercover so she will be here for awhile."
"This explains why she had a gun, how?"
"My mom is FBI trained. So am I. Translation, screw with me and I won't get mad, I'll get even."
"Hello, I am Callie, we got off to a rough start. I am just so used to opening the door if it is unlocked. For a cop he is kind of unsafe." She was rambling on when Jeff walked in.
"Mom, who is that?" Jeff said, smiling.
"This is my niece, Meralle." Jim said.
"Hey, all my friends call me May May."
"Cool, will you got to my school?"
"Probably." She answered.
