“I’m not disagreeing with you, and I guarantee that you’ll get your restraining order, and Elliot will be doing some time. I’ll talk to the judge. I’m just glad you’ve been keeping a tight record on how much he’s been bothering you.” He pulled into the driveway leading to the station. As he helped me out of the car, my hands bound behind me in the metal cuffs, he chuckled.
“What’s so funny?” I glared at him.
“If I told you, you’d slap a harassment charge against me,” he said softly, and I knew he was thinking something I didn’t want to hear.
I grunted. “In the mood I’m in, I probably would. You just keep your thoughts on Amy, okay?”
“Whatever you say, Shifty. I’ve got to think of an appropriate nickname for you now. Maybe Sockeye, or Thinks With Fists?”
I growled but said nothing. He was enjoying this all too much. As we headed toward the door, I asked, “How long do you think I’ll be in?”
“If Miss Florence—or you—can post bail, then you should be home for supper.” He opened the door and escorted me in. The dispatcher’s expression went from blank to shocked. We knew each other, and she wasn’t used to seeing me in irons. Kyle led me to one of the desks in the main room, where he sat me down next to an officer I’d seen around but whose name I didn’t recognize.
“This is Officer Shanna Reynolds. Why don’t you tell her everything that happened.” He glanced at the woman. “After you’re done taking her statement, process her. Be gentle, though, she’s a friend of mine.” He grinned once more before heading back out the door.
