I hit the bed as soon as Beth left for work, but tossed and turned for a couple of hours hardly getting any sleep. Thoughts of what could possibly be affecting her to the point of placing her health in danger would not leave me.
I gave Beth a kiss then sat on the bed to watch her finish applying her makeup as she prepared for work. I had hoped to get home a little earlier to catch her before she got dressed, but Joe and I stopped a guy that had a gun in Marquette Park;
The two thugs had found the house that would be their target tonight, thanks to their accomplice working in the "straight" world.
Pulling out of the parking lot of the “The Lawn” on their first night as Tac guys, Pete and Joe figured they would keep an eye on the area that Mac had alerted them to previously. The intersection of 63rd & Western Streets was a high traffic area; both streets were main arteries for city traffic. At night, the area around the intersection attracted a mix of folks for different reasons.
I tried to assuage his pain. I knew he would not be overjoyed about what I had done, but Joe and I had talked about this all through our senior year at St. Laurence. We were both good athletes, but not good enough to get an athletic ride to college.
All three shifts were commanded by a WC; this officer generally holds the rank of lieutenant or captain. It is his responsibility to carry out the District Commander's (DC) policies and personnel assignments.
Driving south on Cicero Avenue, Beth hit a coffee shop for her morning jolt of caffeine. This should last me until I get on the train at airport, she thought. About 20 minutes later she pulled into the Park and Ride lot at Midway Airport, just in time to catch the 8 am train downtown.
Beth, I know that we've gone over this a hundred times, but explain it to me again. Why don't you want us to be tested? There's something wrong with one of us, otherwise we would have a couple of kids running around the house already
In Chicago Warriors, he has created a unique narrative demonstrating how the worst of man can be defeated by the best in man.
Walking into the coffee shop at work, Beth was thinking about that night in Boston. She had closed the deal that eventually earned her promotion to Executive Accounts Manager, but the price that she paid had been much too high. Even though it had occurred three years ago, that night was still as fresh in her mind as if it had happened yesterday.
