Note: This story is very different than last quarter’s story, Key Relationships. The Cell Window depicts adult situations and crimes against women. You may find this story a bit disturbing. You have been warned ….

The New Recruit

Duncan made a quick test call to verify that the phone was operational. The phone chirped out a ring tone, and Duncan declared it ready to go.

“Here you go,” he said to the brunette sitting across the table from him. “If you have any questions, please give me a call,” he said handing her his card.

The woman smiled back at Duncan. “Thank you. You have been very helpful.” She grabbed her bags, got up, and left the store.

Duncan’s eyes followed her tall, slender body as it moved away from him. He slid a small notebook out of his pocket and scribbled down the name Dana Zeller and the details of her account. Duncan rated her at about a 9.7 – not perfect, but extremely attractive. Dana was definitely worth a closer look.

Duncan stepped back into the employee room and grabbed a Pepsi. It had been a long day, and he needed a bit of a pick-me-up. The sweet buzz of caffeine helped awaken his senses a bit. Ninety very long minutes later, it was finally quitting time. Duncan usually chatted for a few minutes with Bob, the guy who came in for the evening shift. Today, however, he mumbled a quick greeting and headed for the door.

Home, Sweet Home

Duncan tossed the stack of mail onto the kitchen table. It most mostly junk mail, and he could deal with the bills later. He had more important things to do.

Duncan walked to the master bedroom and stepped inside the walk-in closet. While the closet was large, it was slightly smaller than it had been when the house was built. Duncan pushed aside a hidden panel in the wall, revealing a staircase behind it. He closed the panel behind him and descended the stairs to a secret room in the basement.
