Jack walked into the police station with fake tears. A female cop was rubbing his back trying to comfort him about the death of his brother. Jack smiled inside though and reminded himself not to give himself away. The officer led him to a waiting area where he was to stay until he was called in for questioning. Jack was more than prepared for that encounter. He was happy that this was not the same police station that Katrina had him taken to so he was safe on that note. He waited only a few minutes before he was called in for questioning. Now was the time to put on the best show of his life.
“Have a seat here Mr. Sanders.” The detective said motioning for him to sit down.
“Thank you. Please call me Joe.” Jack said sadly.
“All right Joe. I know you were told that your brother Jack Sanders was killed in a car cash.”
“Yes one of the officers informed me when they came to the house.”
“What they didn’t tell you was that another body was recovered from that crash. A woman and she was found strangled and stuffed in the trunk of the car.”
“Oh my god! You’re not telling me that Jack could have…” he trailed off.
“Mr. Sanders, Joe do you have any idea what your brother has been up to the last few months? I checked your records as well as his and it seems you are just getting out of the hospital due to being shoot multiply times at your college.”
“A few months ago I decided to go to Spain for a special classes and to see another part of the world. My parent weren’t thrilled with the idea and said they would not pay my tuition if I went so I talked my brother in to staying at my apartment at school while I was away in case our parents called. I also had him take care of some things there like giving the flyers to the head house. You just small things like that because I couldn’t do them since I went to Spain. He also checked on the house as well. When I got back I was going to give him a few bucks and he was going to leave but I got shoot by someone complaining about what I did to some girl. Jack later confessed to me that he raped at least a couple of girls. I was trying to get him to turn himself in. He was supposed to meet me tonight to do just that but then I got another call saying he did something horrible. He sounded drunk and I was trying to get him to come to the house but I guess it was too late.” He said with tears coming down. “I can’t believe he’s gone. How am I going to tell our parents?”
“I’m sorry for your loss. Do you know the names of any of the girls he raped?”
“I know of the name of one. Her name is Katrina. He just told me about her on our last phone call. My god how am I ever going to tell her? Katrina is a friend of mine but she hasn’t talked to me lately. She probably thought it was me.”
“This is turning out to be a case of mistaken identity. We will contact this victim and explain the situation. It is best you let us tell her first. Once the coroners’ office is done with the body we will release to you. I suggest you call your parents. I would like to speak with them myself. Well it looks like I have everything I need, there is a phone on the desk out side this office you may use that to call your parents. Again I am very sorry for your loss.” The detective said and stood up to go.
“Thank you, Detective.”
“Yes, I am on my way.” Katrina said and hung up the phone.
“Your own your way where?” Damien asked turning over to her in the bed.
“To the police station. I got a call and they said they needed me to come down there so get dressed we got some where to go.” She ordered him.
“Did they say why they need you to come down?” he asked as he started putting on some clothes. He wasn’t looking forward to going to the station.
“No, but I have to go there.” she said and slipped on her shirt. Damien shugged and put on his socks.
“I hope this isn’t about some parking tickets or I’ll be bailing you out of jail. You know they gave Jamal a since type of call and he went down to the station and they arrested him for unpaid parking tickets?”
“Damien, I don’t owe nay parking tickets because my car has been in the campus garage.”
“Oh, so that’s why were always taking my car. You don’t want to drive yours and buy gas.”
“That’s right besides we don’t drive around a lot for me to pay for your gas. I’ll pay part of the parking and for motor oil but not for the gas. It’s too damn high.”
“I’ll take that then.”
“Oh and Damien.”
“You still owe me my steak dinner.”
“This way Ms. Smith. You have ha seat right here.” said the detective.
“Ms. Smith, I’m Detective Logan. I’m sorry to have dragged you out here but some information has been made known and I thought it would be better if I told you myself.”
“Tell me what?”
“Ms. Smith a few months ago, you reported a rape and brought the man who raped you in. He was let go because there wasn’t enough evidence but it has come to our attention that the man you brought in there did in fact rape you.”
“You called me here to tell me that I was right? I already knew that and you did nothing. Now you ask me here to tell me this? You have no idea what I have been through the last few months!” she responded angrily.
“Yes and I am sorry but the man you brought in was not Joe Sanders. Joes Sanders was in Spain. The man that raped you, the man you had brought in was Jack Sanders, his twin brother.”
“What? Joe had a twin brother?”
“Yes, he did. Mr. Sanders wanted to go to Spain a few months ago but if he did then he would get no financial support from his parents so he asked his brother to come to the school and watch his apartment while he was gone in secret and answer the phone as himself if their parents called. You went out that night with Jack not Joe.”
“Oh my God! Then who got shot in the parking lot?”
“The real Joe Sanders was the one that was shot. We have spoken to him and he said he found out about what his brother did to you when he came to see him. Mr. Sanders was trying to get his brother to turn himself in but Jack killed himself in a car crash along with another women. From what we can tell it looks like he killed her. I just wanted to let you know what has happened since you were a victim.”
“Thank you detective. I think I’ll leave now.” She got up and walked out of the room. Damien stood up when she walked in to the waiting room. She shook her head for him not to speak and walked out. Damien followed her with a very concerned look on his face.
“Kat, what’s wrong? What happened?” he asked when they were out of the station.
“All these months I thought Joe raped me. It wasn’t him. It was his brother.”
“What Joe has a brother?”
“He had a brother. His brother killed himself and some women in a car crash. They were twins. Joe wasn’t even here. I was dating his brother all that time and blaming Joe when it wasn’t him. Joe got shot and all I could think is too bad he didn’t die. It was Joe that tried to get his brother to turn himself in and I have been cursing him all this time.”
“Kat how could you have known it wasn’t Joe? I didn’t know Joe had a twin brother. It’s not your fault. No one knew, come on baby. I’ll take you home.” He said and put his arm around her.
“I should go see him to make sure he is okay. He was shot because of his brother now he lost his brother and the story is probably gotten around.”
“Yeah, it’s a bad situation but let’s get you home and calmed down first. We’ll see Joe later.”
“Okay. Damien I want lay down.”
“We can do that. Let’s go back to my apartment.” He said and led her to his car.
Katrina sat in the cafeteria alone. She had an early morning class before and now she was taking advantage of her meal plan. Damien couldn’t join her because of his class schedule so she sat alone because her other friends were in bed or class and the cafeteria was mostly empty. Since she been seeing Damien mornings like this made her feel lonely since he wasn’t there to keep her company or do those silly sweet things that he always did like draw happy faces on her pancakes. She missed him more now because she didn’t spend the night with because of late studying and a project she had to do so now which made her feel like she hadn’t seen him in days. Right now she just wanted him to show up.
“Hello, Katrina.” Jack posing as Joe said.
“Oh my God , Joe! I am so sorry. The police told me everything.”
“It’s alright. I am the one that should be apologizing to you. I had no idea that he would do something like that. I never thought he would. He was my brother. If I had know…”
“It’s not your fault, Joe. How could you have known?”
“I still feel…guilty.” He said in fake sadness.
“Joe, why don’t you keep my company? I’m here alone with no one to talk to. We could catch up.” She suggested.
“That would be nice.” He said and took a seat at the table. “Where is Damien? I heard that you too are together now.”
“Yeah we are but he has class now and I don’t so I’m here making use of this meal plan.”
“How has it been going with you two?”
“It’s going well. No problems so far.”
“That’s good. I hope it stays that way. You know Damien is a party kind of guy.”
“Yeah but I’m not worried about him going out and messing around. He is good to me.”
“I wish I had someone to be good to.”
“Don’t worry Joe. I’m sure one day you’ll find someone special.”
“It’ll be tough given my situation with my family right now. People have been questioning me all the time. My mother was very upset and I just want to be some where else right now.”
“It’ll get better Joe.”
“I hope so but it would help if I had a friend to help.” He said and placed his hand gently on top of hers.
“I’ll help you to get through it. We were friends before and we are friends now.” She said and squeezed his hand.
“Damien, the lab is missing some supplies. Have you been in here lately to use any for an experiment?”
“That’s strange because I asked everybody else and they said the same thing. We’re missing tranquilizers and other medical supplies as well as some of our experimental solutions.” Said Pro. Morton.
“That is strange. I haven’t used anything out of the supply room in a while.”
“All right then. I guess I’ll just have to ask Joe. He’s the only student that has the other key besides you.”
“Yeah. I know.” Damien said and started thinking.
“Katrina will you come with me to the party tomorrow night. I’m supposed to be there because it’s a Greek party. You and Damien could keep me company.”
“Sure. Damien and I will be there.”
“Good. Look I have to go to class but I’ll see you at the party.” He said getting up.
“Okay Joe I’ll see you.” After Joe left she dumped her tray and went to her apartment. She wondered what Damien was doing at the moment so she checked her watch and saw that his class was over. She decided to call him and see if she could meet him later.
“Damien, hey what are you up too?”
“Hi Kat, look I can’t talk to you now I’m busy.”
“Ok, I’ll talk to you later then.”
“Yeah, yeah later.” He said and hung up the phone.
‘I wonder what that was about.’ She thought. She dropped her bag and laid on her couch. He next class wasn’t until 1:30 and she had three hours. It was a great time to take a nap or be with that special someone. Since her special someone wasn’t there she decided that the best thing she could do is take a nap.
Damien knocked on Joe’s door hoping to get some answers. He knocked for about five minutes before giving up and walking away. Just his luck when she was walking down the hall Joe emerged from the elevator.
“Joe, great I have to ask you something.”
“Sure, what is it?”
“I just talked with Prof. Morton.”
“Prof. Morton? What about?”
“Prof. Morton…the head of the lab department, one of the teachers of Chemistry and Biology, the one who has been our professor and head for two year right now. I met with the professor and he said that we are missing some lab supplies. I was wondering if you been in the lab since you got back or if you gave the key to your brother?”
“UMMM I don’t believe I did. Wait, I gave him my keys and that key was on my key ring. Let me check if it is on my keys.”
“Oh you don’t have to look now. Just call me when you find it.” Damien said and walked away. Jack watched him leave.
Okay that’s all for now…thoughts ladies?
