Sunset. The heat of the day was slowly fading away and the air at the middle of the bridge started to cool down. Miriam wished that she had a jacket to cover her bare arms with. Goosebumps appeared on her sunburnt skin and made it stretch uncomfortably. She should be well on her way home, taking a shower, putting on sun lotion, and heating up the leftover Chinese food from yesterday. Instead she was still standing here, three hours later, trying to think of nothing while watching the water lazily drifting away some twenty metres below her, brownish in colour. The city skyline on her left was reflecting the dying sun in glass and metal, but the city skyline on her right was already hid in shadow. A warm feeling of relief that she was heading towards the sunlit part of the city made her body relax and lured a satisfied smile to show on her lips. She turned her head to the left, followed every single skyscraper with her gaze, counting them as she always did when she took this way from work. Thirty two visible, all looking down at her. Miriam?s smile suddenly disappeared and a shiver ran through her body. The sound of the cell phone almost made her jump. She grabbed it hastily to silence it. ?Yes?? ?Claire?? Caesar?s deep voice caressed her. ?Mhm.? ?I need you down at the morgue. The autopsy is finished.? Something in his voice suddenly made the air become yet cooler and she embraced herself to stop the hair on her arms from standing up. ?Have you called Cyrus or should I?? Her voice was calm and steady, much to her own surprise. ?Not yet. Don?t worry about him. I?ll call him. Just get over here, will you.? ?I?m on my way.? ?And Claire??? Caesar's voice became emotionless. ?I hope you haven?t eaten.?
