Never Forget

This was inspired by a prompt from Tomi Adeyemi’s writing prompts.


Jocelyn had said to do everything by the books.  She’d attacked Konrad and might have killed him, if not for the timely arrival of his younger brother.  However, she claimed that the attack was justified.  Konrad was violent and dangerous, she said.  He’d killed everyone in her family and driven her to an act of revenge out of pain and sorrow.  Those were serious charges so it didn’t matter who Konrad was.  They needed to hear her side of the story and then get his side of the story before they simply arrested her for attempted murder.

Holly stepped into the interrogation room and frowned at the woman seated at the table.  Charlotte Kovachev was a pretty woman with brown eyes and blond curls.

“They thought I’d forget,” she said, her voice soft.  Her brows furrowed and she shook her head.  “But I remembered.  Everything.”

“Start at the beginning,” Holly said, her voice soft.  She shook her head.  “You claim that Dr. Engel is a murderer.  Why is that?”

“Dr. Engel,” the woman said.  The way she said the name, it was as if it left a bad taste in her mouth.  “He wasn’t a doctor the first time I saw him.  He was just some gangly kid with a giant sword and an attitude to match.”

Holly blinked at Kovachev.  She’d never heard Konrad described as having any kind of attitude.  He was usually polite and soft-spoken.  Rather than argue, she nodded slowly.  “Is that so?” she said.  “Tell me about it?”
