carly part six: susan

This story started here.

Dennis motioned the two dazed officers to remove Micki Sheldon from her father's office. Susan got out of the way and returned to her desk as the door to the inner office closed. Dennis went out with the two officers and Micki, and Susan and Nora sat in stunned silence for several minutes. Then the intercom buzzed.

"It's Dennis," he said. "Get me the chief."

Knowing that Mike Sheldon probably wouldn't respond, she buzzed his office. After a few moment's silence, she said automatically, "He's stepped away. What is it?"

"Listen, Susan, get him. Bang on the door. This–"

Feeling like just hanging up, she said, "He's not answering, he won't answer, and I'm sure he doesn't want to talk to you. What is it?"

"It's Micki. They had her in the van, and it crashed."

"Oh, my God," she breathed, aware of Nora's fixed expression as she listened. "I'll get Mike. Is she–"

"Wait," said Dennis. "She's not dead, she wasn't even hurt, as far as they could tell. Before anybody knew what happened, she got out and ran into the subway. They didn't have the cuffs on her because she's the old man's daughter."
