Mai entered her office to find her brother with equally red hair siting in her chair with his feet on her desk. His hair was only a bit shorter than hers resting near his shoulder blades. “GET OUT OF MY CHAIR.” She said threateningly, going around to the side of the desk he was on. He didn’t move so she grabbed his hair and pulled him out of the chair. She sat down in her chair and sipped her coffee. “AND GET A HAIRCUT.” She scolded.
“Oh come on, sis” he said sitting down in a chair on the other side of the desk.
“AND A JOB!” She yelled.
“I’m fine without one, sis.” He said in his usual laid back tone putting his hands behind his head and leaning back in the chair.
“You can’t live off of your inheritance forever, Danny!” She said angrily clenching her teeth.
“Don’t worry so much, little sis.” He said kicking his feet up on her desk.
She pushed his feet off her desk aggressively. “I’m only younger by 15 minutes.” She said angrily and rolling her eyes. “What did you want anyway?” She asked rudely.
Danny started to get out of his chair getting ready to leave. “I wanted to know if you would meet my new girlfriend.”
“The bimbo you picked up at the bar last night doesn’t qualify as a girlfriend. Stop trying to con me into feeding you.” Mai said glaring at her brother.
“Soooo, that’s a no?” He asked from the doorway.
She picked up a tennis ball from her desk and chucked it at her brother. He dodged the ball and ran out of the office. She opened her laptop signing in and logging into her account in the database network. Nothing new had been added to the files on the case. She slammed her fist down on the table angrily and spun around to face a wall she had covered in pined pictures of the victims. She furrowed her eyebrows trying to work out the problem in her head. Noon arrived and left without her taking the time to notice. She was deep in the case when the first young man from the morning entered her office.
“Ma’am?” He asked leaning into her office.
“What do you need Detective Huffman?” She asked not looking away from her computer.
“I have the testimonials from the witnesses.” He said bringing in a stack of files.
“Good anything interesting?” She asked continuing to focus on her computer screen.
“No ma’am.” He said bracing himself for the screams.
“Okay.” She said calmly not taking her eyes off the computer.
Detective Huffman left the room with a smile. “What’s with you?” His friend asked he passed.
“I think we have a lead.” He said smiling.
“Chief didn’t yell or even look away from her computer when I told her that there was nothing interesting.” The man said smiling at his friend who grinned back.
