I like to clear my mind at night, so I usually go for a long walk down by the pier. It’s not my favorite spot, but it’s easy to blend into the crowds of people there. I’m unassuming in a crowd; no one looks at me too hard or too suspiciously. At the pier, I’m just another guy. No one’s whispering that I look like one of the Martelli Brothers. No one’s pointing and saying “I think that’s Logan Martelli,” in awe-struck tones as if I were Al Capone or some mafia boss. It’s laughable how many people know me, or of me. I almost feel famous, but not in the good way. That’s the problem with living in a small town like River Valley.
I stared out at the water and studied the moonlit ripples as they flowed and ebbed. There was a certain magic in the water that entranced me. Maybe, it was because the water didn’t lie. What you saw reflected in her silvery murky depths was what you got. Like tonight, the moon glowed in all its ominous glory, and there was nothing hidden. The same thing couldn’t be said of human beings. There were always so many secrets, hidden inside, that weren’t reflected in the seemingly happy and perfect surfaces. I looked around at the couples holding hands, and saw Roger Martin walking with his girlfriend Bella Casey. She was giggling up at him, and he was grinning at her lovingly. Anyone watching them would think that they were deeply in love, only I knew better. Roger was a barely able to keep it together drunk and Bella was in love with my brother, Vincent. She called him, and stalked him so many times that she was lucky that he was a Martelli. Martelli’s didn’t go to the police and file restraining orders; and even if we did, the police would laugh in our faces.
I turned to look at the water again, when I saw a glimpse of someone darting by me. And when I say dart, I mean running like lightening. I watched as the figure looked back quickly, and, I was startled by the intense blue eyes that connected with mine for the briefest second. It wasn’t the stare that shook me but the fact that it was a girl, she winked at me and continued running and I stood there and watched as two policemen rushed past me and ran after her. I wasn’t the only one who noticed the chase that was happening, people everywhere were stopping and gaping, whispering ferociously. Everyone wanted to know what was going on, and I had to admit I was curious as well. Why were the police chasing a girl? She wasn’t anyone I knew, and I knew most of the bad folks in the town.
I saw old man Roberts hobbling up to a couple a few feet away from me, and his face was red and animated. “He tried to steal a cop car,” he gasped out. “He got in the car, and drove off, but he wasn’t smart enough to…”
“Who, who?” The male part of the couple was loud and excited. “Who was it?”
