I was sitting in a car, rain pouring down on the roof of my car. I felt dizzy and didn't noticed how my mind drifted into the beginning of this case...
It looked like a simple situation with a runaway teenager, but apparently tracing 15 year old Flora Gawl wasn't so easy. The girl managed to reach Washington state. She wanted to cross Canada's border and visit her boyfriend but while on her journey she had a car accident. I was wondering how she was able to trick hospital staff and get medical care until I bumped into the not very pleasant old lady. She was a reason of all this - her words about local doctor - Carlisle Cullen made me to dig some information about him. I was ready for anything but what I found... That was unbelievable.
So here am I after 3 months of research watching Cullen's house. I can feel shivers down my spine - their house in the middle of woods and must say that watching them gives me creeps. I pulled out some data out of my bag so I could study it till the teens come back. They all are in school now though according to my papers they graduated many times. I slowly read papers: records about entering one or another school, driving lisence copies, job or college applications and most important - few photos which I compared to other like hundred times. And the conclusion was terrifying. Who are they? The oldest picture made in 1895 captured the same man who is completely unchanged today. I put photos away and read some more and have to say they acted like professional. They made the only mistake wich lead me them - they always used the same first names : Carlisle, Esme, Edward, Rosalie, Emmett, Jasper and Alice. And of course the new member of their, I don't know how to call it, family? Isabella Cullen. She was the easy one - only one past life and it was pretty clear. She married Edward Cullen and after some time it was impossible to find her. But it wasn't the first names that gave them away, it was last name: most of the time they were Cullens, in other cases it was usually Hale, Whitlock, Masen, Platt or Mccarty. I even found a person who creates all their documents - it is a lawyer J.Jenks. Another handy thing for me was that they always preferred north states. I still can't understand why. Maybe old sentiments? And old means really really old ones...
I nearly had a heart attack but when I started looking around I noticed a woman standing beside. She smiled politely and I suddenly recognized her - Esme Cullen, Dr. Cullen's wife. I slowly opened the door and got out of a car. What am I going to say her now? Sorry to interrupt you but I think you're not getting old? Maybe you could tell my why?
"Excuse me, but did you get lost?" she broke my long silence and watched me frozing. Lie to her? Maybe... I can't risk by revealing my true purpose, what if they are danger? So I decided quickly to come up with some story.
" Well, I don't want to frighten you ma'am, but I'm a police officer",- I showed her my badge,-" And I'm investigating a case". Her expression for a second became scared, but soon it returned to normal. I hit soft spot. They are really hiding something.
"Why? Have we done something, officer?"
"Oh, no, it has nothing to do with you" I assured her enjoying my ability to lie " I am tracking important criminal, he likes to hide in the woods. I chose this spot cause house is a farthest place in a woods. I just want to assure your safety." - again I saw a second of relief.
"It's very nice of you. Maybe I can offer you a cup of coffee? Your job must be really tiring",- she seemed to be really nice but what if she noticed something? On the other hand I don't know when I will have another chance to look inside their house. She noticed my wavering so I lied again.
"I don't know... What if he will pass my car when I'm at your house?"
"Of course I don't want to interrupt you, but being for so long in one place must be tough. So if you decide to accept my offer I would be really glad. After all you are protecting us " - her face was so sincere that I couldn't say no.
"Well, maybe, just one cup" - she smiled and I started following her until I remembered my papers. "Could you just wait for me a second? I want to clean up my mess a bit" and lucky for me she didn't followed me back to my car. I quickly gathered all the data and hid it in my secret place in the chair.
"I'm here" I ran to her and went to a gorgeous white house.
