When I arrived back at the station, I wanted to yell at someone. So, I did the only reasonable thing. I grabbed Izra, pulled her into a spare room, and yelled at her. Usually it’s her starting the arguments but today it is me.
“Why didn’t you take the other case but kept the one I already knew so much on! Do you like being difficult Izra?” I yelled at her.
“Oh, sorry I gave you the second case. I thought you were able to handle it!” she yelled back at me. I felt so mad I wanted to hit her, but I didn’t instead I said the worst thing you can to another detective.
“Maybe you were afraid of the other case because you are a bad detective!” I yelled at Izra. I knew after I said it I made a huge mistake but I refuse to own up to it. I watched her face turn to a much darker looking face. Almost evil like.
“Fine, if I’m such a terrible detective, how about a little bet?” She asked suspiciously. I looked at her, confusion written all over my face. But the saying does go curiosity killed the cat.
“What of and what is the price?” I asked her. I was interested, confused, and a little fearful because you cannot always trust Izra.
“You will do the second case we got and I’ll do the first one. Whoever can find the murderer first and get them to admit it or head to jail, they would get to not having to do paperwork for a week.” Izra told me with a smirk on her face.
“What do you mean by not having to do paperwork for a week?” I asked curious about my least favorite part of my job and it disappearing for a whole week.
“Loser does it all of course, who else would do it.” She told me, that cursed evil like smirk on her face. I loved the idea of not having to do any paperwork, even if it is only for a week.
“Deal, just be prepared to lose this Izra because I’m not going down without a fight. And I will win.” I told her cockily. I knew I was going to win this competition. I could easily find this killer and quickly. Including with Anya and Dani on my side. Izra just burst out laughing and couldn’t stop.
“You should not believe the fact that I will never ever lose a competition or anything to you.” Izra looked at me with a cocky smirk. I should have known, if there is two things that Izra loves is arguing and winning, including if it’s against me.
“Oh, I doubt that Iz. I know I’m going to win this.”
“Is that so,” She asked. I just shook my head yes. “Okay then let the best man win.” She finished off. She put her hand out so that I can shake it. And that is exactly what I did.
