“A detective sees death in all the various forms at least five times a week”- Evan Hunter
Never have I even vaguely imagined that I’ll be here today. The journey was vicious, straight from the book of chaos but the destination was calm and free like a butterfly. Its a weird thing to say but I would gladly go through it all again , knowing that the road leads to a place beyond your wildest imagination.
I will never forget the day 🤔, okay wait I forgot which day it was but I remember that it was a warm summer’s night. A lady whose name I cannot for the life of me recall, all I know is that it is Clear, anyway she left a note in my Book, the one with my face on. Now as you already know, my memory is foggy but it basically read that ‘The LIT force is drowning under a mountain of cold cases, the kind that has more riddles, smoke and mirrors than any tangible evidence ‘ . It then dawned upon me that the mysterious lady was actually from The LIT team which a branch for the police department.
One slightly windy Saturday morning team was summoned to a strange town called Flowerbank located south north of Money Tree ( yes it is a real country 😆😜) . This where I had my first encounter with the everyone. A few of the lieutenants were compatriots of mine from way way back, which put me at ease as I know them to be good people whose always will to apply some elbow-grease for a just cause. One thing I must say is that they had a strange way of introducing themselves or they just have strange names🤷♂️. Just look at this; our team comprised of X, Quartz, Angle, LO, Chap and me (told ya).
After the pleasantries were exchanged, we were presented with a high priority case directly from Interpol, one that Sherlock himself could not solve. It was gruesome, people were being taken out like ants. The scenes were definitely not for the faint in heart but as you know I am not faint at heart so I could stomach all the gory stuff, not so sure about the others.
As one of the newbs in the team I was mostly found hanging back while the more experienced members led (rightfully so) . If im totally honest, I wasn’t at my best right at the beginning but I’m like a Caterpillar engine: it takes time to warm up but when its warm, it will run forever. Once I got into my stride, I took over the case like dark clouds on a sunny day. I had the case solved in no time, neatly wrapped up with a bow on top. I left the peeps in total disbelief as no one had a cooking clue who the perp was until then.
The president of Money Tree caught wind of the breakthrough, he then awarded me the Medal of Valor and immediately appointed me as the General so that we can lead our country into Utopia. The promotion was a major win for the team and we have all excelled in one way or the other.
At the end of it all, it is my story and I’m sticking to it, but, but, if I could ask you to remember just one important lesson today; its that everything is impossible until it someone does it…
