Chapter 3: The Mansion of Dr. Chen
Donovan shook himself to his senses and became conscious of Cedric's arms pulling him out of the wreck through a shattered window. “What a time for an accident!” Donovan muttered.
“It couldn't be that, Lester,” Nyles pulled him to his feet and brushed him off. “No, this was intentional. The doctor means to scare us off, or...”
A small sound, like a cough came from the cab. Crouching to investigate the men realized the police car had landed in drainage ditch, mercifully filled with garbage from the surrounding buildings. The officer at the wheel was clearly dead, his face smashed horribly against the steering column, but the other sputtered, face bloodied and only half alive.
“Lester, quick, hold his head and I'll get him the right way up. I don't think the neck's been broken.”
Lester did as he was told as Nyles climbed back into the car “Little chance of getting and ambulance out here.”

"Sorry, I accidentally... "
"We must be careful with old things, mustn't we?" the butler said, taking the statue from my hands and putting it on the shelf. I noticed for the first time his complete lack of eyebrows and a strange angle to his jaw which made it look ever slanted to the right and never at center.
"Yes... just how old is that sculpture?”
“I'm not sure, sir.”
“It's incredible workmanship, an amazing likeness of..."
In a chilling moment, the butler's eyes met mine. They seemed outraged. A steely challenge seemed to be in them, as if I were an invader and not a guest at all. No, it must have been the words I used. The look in his cold jealous face will stay with me always.
"...well," I continued. "It's likely a classical work to be included in Mr. Tarkington's collection. As you said, one must take care. Is is 6 yet?"
The butler seemed to recover himself "No sir, I'm just here bringing some fresh clothes." He set down a b

Chapter 2: A Story in Their Eyes
Back at the police station the men tried to sort out the mess.
“Absolutely incredible,” Sergeant Wilkins shouted. “Are you sure this was the work of that devil doctor of yours?”
“Yes,” Cedric Nyles said. “This was indeed the doctor, I think we can consider him alive and dangerous.”
“How the devil does this Ching manage to completely bypass our security and murder a man I'd have sworn was safer than the president himself.”
“His name is Chen,” Cedric corrected. “Qin Shi Chen, he's a doctor of medicine, or history, and of occult studies...”
“Well, whatever he is he just made fools of this entire department, and let me tell you that's the last thing we need. The press still think of us all as shiftless Bolsheviks and the public isn't likely to think much better.”

|I truly hate the sit-back thing, but in case you don't, here it is.|
I'm the product of many influences. I am first and foremost a surrealist continuing the Surrealist tradition. Fantastic and Macabre art are also playgrounds of mine, pretty much anything that sends you into dreamland. I am a film buff and aspire to the cinematic.
