Chapter 3: This One is a Bit Different.
New Milan, the city I've sworn to protect and serve. I am police
chief Victor Montague. I have solved over a hundred crimes and have
captured over a thousand criminals. And right now, I'm interviewing two
bank robbers who say they were foiled by a cat.
"Now what did you say he looked like?" I said, putting a little bit
of intimidation behind it. Let them know who's boss.
"Like we said, some sort of cat person! He looked just like a cat,
but a person!"
"You said that already. Any distinguishing features?"
"Well, he had an M on his forehead."
"As in, it was painted on?"
"Well, no... rather, it was part of his... hair."
"So what you're telling me is, he parted his hair and put an M-shaped
sticker on his forehead?"
"N-no, why did you think that? We didn't say anything like that!"
"Well, that's what I would do."
Eventually we got details. Apparently, this cat guy was a mackerel
tabby cat man, who seemed to be wearing normal clothing with
fashionable green stripes and a deep, sexy voice.
Afterward, we got called in for the special 1%. MURDER!
It wasn't pretty. It seems the victim just exploded next to a row of
storefronts. There didn't seem to be any rhyme or reason.
"Can't wait to see the autopsy," I said morbidly.
"I know what you mean," replied Deputy Robertson, my second-in-
command and my best friend. He's been there ever since the "red door"
incident. Ugh... whenever I think about that case... well, I'm just
glad I have some one to talk to.
"What I'm wondering," I wondered, "is *how* the killer extracted this
guy's organs in front of everybody with out being seen or damaging
"Well, there were reports of a floating man between the buildings.
They say he pointed, then this guy's organs exploded out of his body. I
wonder if he had the money to set up some sort of hologram project or
some complex killing thingy."
"Hmm, do you think this has to do with that cat-man?"
"You mean the one that stopped that robbery?"
"No, the one that's on television. OF COURSE THE ONE THAT STOPPED THE
"Okay! Geez! No need to get snippy!"
"Well, I just--"
"Can I say something?"
"Where... did that voice come from?"
Robertson asked a good question. Where *did* that voice come from?
...oh, you've got to be kidding me.
