First Day

My first day in Homicide, my partner and I caught a case out by the river. A guy was found choked to death with a catfish.

“Who runs things out here?” my partner asked me.

“A guy named Catfish Brown,” I said.

“You think there’s a connection?” my partner said.

“I don’t believe in happenstance,” I said.

My partner laughed.

“Happenstance?” he said. “Don’t let them hear you say that back at the station. We don’t believe in coincidence, partner, not your happenstance.”
