Forehead pounding, temples throbbing. One cop slowly approaches me. He stands just about two feet away from me, studying what seems to be my state of mind.
"Ma'am, I need you to tell me what happened here. We need to start an investigation as soon as possible ans we can'y do that unless you give us a steady idea on what happened here tonight." The police officer had deep brown eyes that were starring right into mine. He ran his long, lanky fingers through his dark, fuzzy hair. He then looked down at his feet, waiting for me to reply to him and trying to find the right time to make eye contact with me again.

This kind of shit only happens in movies. Why is it happening to me? This cant be real. I look around and realize that everything is real. This is reality and I have to live in it.
