The Gendarme’s Lot Is Not A Happy One


PHOTO PROMPT © Sandra Crook

Hugo dragged on his Gauloise.  He’d left the hotel room swiftly and was looking at the beautiful facade.

How could such a monstrous act have been committed in such a picturesque building?

Years working for the police had hardened him to acts of depravity, but what he’d witnessed sickened him.

The activities in that room had been evil; blood saturated the sheets and the girl’s hair was a dishevelled, congealed mess.

How could anyone view children as sexual beings?

He threw the dog-end into the gutter and strode back inside.

For the first time ever Hugo considered not following procedure.

    I could never do their job either. I’d spend all my time being angry and disgusted and would probably end up doing jail time as I might not follow procedure once I caught them either!
    Very well described.
