The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted

Summary: A collection of drabbles, mostly based on the weekly prompts at tw100. Mostly Jack/Ianto as that's what I write, but no doubt other Torchwood characters will pop in from time to time. All genres are possible, but expect mainly humour and fluff, because that's usually what comes out when I write. All are 100 words exactly in Word, but apparently not here!

The Torchwood Drabble Files by badly_knitted
Chapter 888: A DI’s Tale – Part 3
Author's Notes: Part three of my drabble series for Challenge 379: Cardiff Constabulary at tw100.

Summary: It’s stalemate, and Kathy doesn’t dare move.

She’s frozen to the spot, not able to move, hardly daring to draw breath, her eyes locked with those of the monster. Her radio is in her pocket, she could call for backup, but she’s got a horrible feeling that if she even twitches, the creature will be on her before she can scream.

Images flash through Kathy’s head, crime-scene photos from unsolved cases, murder victims, their throats torn out. Her colleagues in the Cardiff Constabulary would have people believe the mutilation was caused by foxes post-mortem.

She’s almost certain that now she’s face to face with the real killer.
