Superintendent: A high and respected Police rank

Nobody's POV:

The world hardly ever made sense. 

There would be questions that nobody could answer. There would be people that were so strange even scientists were left wracking their brains for an answer. Then there would be unthinkable places, people who defied the laws of physics, questions that never had a straight answer...
