Part 5

There are four tin trashcans dripping with water at Margo’s desk. She moves a file, preventing it from getting wet; then Bennett comes over. He said: “I understand your frustrations kid. I remembered when I started the police force in 1939. Oh, did I have a hard time of it. I came from upstate New York a long way from home. I was young in my 30’s. I was headstrong and hated my captain. Captain Lee was his name. He later died in a robbery gone bad. The morale of the story is –never hold a grudge against co-officers. I wish I had appreciated him more. I learned from him you know. You will learn from Captain Lewis at some point kid. Bennett walked off, leaving Margo with something to think about.
