Afraid it’ll get you into trouble?Oh, I know it’ll get me into trouble.
Care to share what those might be?
Hmm, I don’t know. Might be better keeping it to myself.
Marcus felt like Charlie wasn’t telling him everything, felt like he was hiding something but then again he could just be off because of everything recently. Between receiving text messages from -A and dealing with the Lucy situation. “So, you don’t remember anything at all? You hadn’t seen Ms. Pierce at all that week?” He questioned, Marcus was beginning to wonder if there was something else that he should be looking at that involved Mr. Baker’s girlfriend but his partner was questioning her. Or maybe there wasn’t and Marcus was just trying to make something out of nothing. “Well, since you can’t remember that week, how about a few days leading up to her disappearance? I know this seems like we are asking a lot but we want to discover what happened so any little detail that you can remember would be grateful. And it will help us catch whoever is responsible.” Nodding his head a little bit when Charlie mentioned his daughter. “That would be Sophie, correct?”
Charlie rolled his eyes, though he tried not to. He didn’t mean to get annoyed and it wasn’t Marcus personally, it was this whole topic. It wound him up and frustrated him. “Why would I have seen her? It was the holidays, they weren’t at school. They were all out doing… whatever it is sixteen year old girls get up to.” He sighed and looked down at his hands. “I’ve told you all this a hundred times before.. I didn’t see Annie. Not until that night in the woods… and you know I didn’t lay a finger on her. I can’t tell you anything else because I never saw the girl.” It’s not like it would even matter if he did tell Marcus that he might, possibly have seen her once that week. All it would do was get him into more trouble, it wouldn’t help their case. “Yes.” He said, looking up at the mention of Sophie. “And if you’re planning on dragging her in again, I’d appreciate it if you let me know.”
Is that it… “okay”?
Well, I don’t really.. want to get into another argument.
Cruel? I don’t know how you can say that…Starting to feel like you keep me around for amusement.
Well.. luckily for you I’m not in the mood to also punish myself so..
Would you rather I just never kissed you again instead?
But it’s very possible that I’m bluffing.
