Mark turned around and took off running in the opposite direction of Sadie. He quickly disappeared through the alley before he could be discovered by anywone else.
Soon, Mark slipped back into his Mostel room through the window. He gasped for breath as he slid down the wall to the floor, having not stopped running the entire time.
Hell of a girl... Mark thought to himself, as he reflected on what had happened.
Meanwhile, Detective Robert Pierce sat in his offivce at the local police station. He poured over evidence andm photos taken from recent crime scenes. Most if not all of these murders, appeared to be linked to one being. A figure whom the press had dubbed "Shade".
The link between the murders is that there were none at all. Shade, whoever they were, killed quickly and left behind no forensic evidenceor witnesses. No visual dexcription, nt even their gender, had been identified yet. And what was worse was that no one seemed to care about this case. But Pierce did, and he was determined to track down this killer.
