The Crime Scene

524EC1C6-6683-45B8-B0A4-049802D0BD69Detectives Jim Morrisey and Ron Hayden entered the room after Morrisey kicked open the door. The first thing they noticed was the awful smell that hit them in the face as soon as they entered the room. “Oh my God,” Hayden said, covering his nose with his hand. “Remind me to carry a can of that Glade air freshener spray next time we bust into a crime scene.”

Morrisey shot Hayden a dirty look. He then flicked a light switch on the wall next to the door, which turned on a very bright light directly above a long, metal table in the middle of the room. Morrisey noticed how spartan the room was. In addition to the table, there were a few wooden chairs and a large wooden desk, upon which were what appeared to be some surgical tools spread out on its surface. An old claw foot bathtub stood in one corner of the room. There were no lights other than the one situated directly above the metal table, and the few windows were covered by blackout curtains. “So this is where the perp brought his prey in order to harvest their organs,” he said.

“Well,” Hayden said,” that explains the stink.”

“Okay, Ron,” Morrisey said, “quit bellyaching about the smell and start dusting for prints and seeing if you can get any blood samples. If we’re going to catch this sick bastard, our procedures need to exemplify a flawless investigation.”

      I could never be a doctor. Both the sights and the smells would get to me.

      Thanks. It’s fun to try to knit together a cohesive story using four to six unrelated words that other bloggers have tossed out.
