A CAT’S LIFE

Inspector Sharma peeped in through the shattered glass panes.
A half eaten pizza, its edges smeared in blood, popped out of a Mcdonald’s take away box that rested on the plush seat covers.
The body lay slumped on the steering wheel, the hands loosened to the sides, the gun, a semi-automatic Colt, popping out of the jeans side pockets.
‘It looks like a gang war? Majid was a marked man.’
Inspector Sharma unburdened himself from the brand new Audi.
Why does this dimwit indulge his brain when he doesn’t have one.
“Pandey, arrange for the post-mortem immediately. Call forensics. I want every inch of space earched with a fine comb”.
‘Ok, Sir…sir…the cat…what do we do with it?’
Sharma turned around and looked at the front seat. She was still lost to the world.
“Don’t worry, she’s fine. She’s got many more lives to live”.
