There was a knock at the door with police sirens flashing violently outside, I wiped the tears from my eyes and Tina sat up with her cup of tea in her hand. I opened the door slightly, trying to cover myself from the outside as I only had a dressing gown on. "May I come in please, Mrs?" The officer asked, in a assertive tone. "Can you just give me two seconds to just put something else on?" I quizzed, he allowed me and after I threw on a pair of pyjamas instead I indicted he could enter.
"Can I get you anything?" I asked, knowing that this may have something to do with Megan and I was in for a long chat potentially. "No thank you," he said shaking his head. "I have some news on your daughter, Megan and the case... well we believe that you may be very interested in this." I looked at him, not taking my eyes off him as I went to sit down next to Tina. "Do you want me to go upstairs, you know out the way?" Tina asked.
"It's fine Tina, I may need you.." I said with a little bit of panic in my voice.
"We had evidence to suggest this was a suicide, as you know due to the note left and the way the body was. However, there was the slight possibility this was a scene of murder," the officer said looking directly into my eyes. "After thorough checks we do believe this was the result of a murder by the use of a knife, I'm very sorry." I looked at Tina before burying my head into her shoulder and crying, why would someone want to kill my daughter? "Do you know who this person is?" Tina asked for me, "Have you got any way of... finding out?"
"We will conduct searches and carry out multiple tests to ensure we get the sufficient clues to find who the cultript was. In situations like this it can be very difficult, I won't lie to you, however we will come to the bottom of it."
"I hope you do! Who could do something like this to my Megan?" I sobbed, "My daughter was killed by god knows who and I won't sleep until you lock up the criminal and throw away the key. I hope they ROT!"
"We will try our hardest Mrs. I'll leave you to yourself and will make sure to tell you of any news we find."
"Thank you officer," Tina said showing him out as I lay heartbroken on the sofa. I couldn't believe what I had heard at all, I had convinced myself it must have been suicide because of that note and the evidence to suggest it could have been murderer was just some kind of mistake. But now... but now knowing someone killed my daughter... it's something else. It haunts me how someone could kill a girl so precious and beautiful as she were, what had she done to deserve this torture?
"How could you be so stupid as to make it so obvious, huh?"
"I tried! I thought I had covered it up-"
"Well obviously not good enough, they're going to find out we killed Megan, besides her mother will point the finger at me anyway!"
"Spare it, you're not sorry at all otherwise you would have covered it up better and not been so foolish as to give them the evidence they need. Let's just hope you did enough, eh."
I can't believe Scarlett was so stupid to not cover her tracks because obviously with me being her ex the blame is going to come straight to me isn't it. I wanted to get rid of her because she was a waste of space and I knew she wasn't going to let me go for leaving her. Truth is, I never wanted her – who would want a girl who was like Megan? A girl who cared more about helping the fucking enviroment then seeing her own boyfriend.
Scarlett is something different, she obeys me and puts me first. She was also the person who stabbed Megan O'Brien in the woods that night, nobody would have guessed that because she's covering my tracks, if I get found it... well I won't because she'll be taking the blame.
