The range proved to be very relaxing. I continued to shoot Mike. A lot. I knew come Monday morning, my career was going to have a major setback. And that set me to thinking. Do I like being an attorney in a law firm or did I enjoy the feel of the gun in my hand? Would being a cop be more fun? Too many rules.


“When did you get the .380?”


“Huh?” I pulled my ear muffs off one ear so I could hear Tiff.


“Amber, here and now, when did you get the .380? It’s cute!”


“More ex issues. Got it a while back,” I handed the baby hand-gun to Tiffany to allow her to fire it a time or two. When she finished the clip, I tapped the ear muffs. She pulled one of hers off and I did the same.

“Tif, what do you think of me as a cop?”


She stared at me. Her eyes narrowed and then widened and then she smiled, “You’d make a great policewoman!”


Ohhh PC and all. An idea flashed! Hmmm.


“What do you think of me as a PI? A Private eye?”


Tiffany’s lips turned into a thin line. Her brows creased.


“I don’t think that would be entirely the best profession for you. At least if you were a cop you would have a partner to watch you.”


I shrugged and pulled my muffs back on and shoved a new clip into the gun. The thoughts continued churning. Would I like to be a cop? I think I would. Maybe I’d look for Hart on the Internet, and after I got him calmed down for the fax then I’d ask what he thought. I mean if I were a police officer then Mike couldn’t kick me out of a crime scene, of course he could because he’d likely be my supervisor but then again what if i didn’t stay in Great Falls? Of course I would. I came back after college. I like Great Falls too much to leave. Working with Mike kind of made my stomach hurt. his possessiveness and need to protect me would get in my way. It would get on my nerves and I’m sure shooting a fellow cop was against the rules. Being a PI, now that sounded like a job for me. I would be like a cop but I could make my own hours. I could carry a weapon because I already had the permit. I’d be like magnum PI. With boobs. And no moustache.
