By Emma Calin

She slammed her fist into the suspect’s face, as Lanza held on with his last strength. There was a plea in his eye. Still, he kept his jaw locked on the arm as the guy writhed and kicked. She drew her cuffs and running on instinct snapped the metal onto his wrists. He tried a vicious head-butt. She drove her foot hard into his groin. Game over.

Lanza slumped down into the long damp grass. She assessed his condition. Bright foamy blood and a sucking chest wound. In minutes he would bleed to death. Looking back toward the house she could see running figures and the blue roof lamps of other police units. She spotted the firearm and covered it with her foot. Lanza was dying and she could do nothing.

The big man from the house knelt alongside the dog.

“Do your police stuff with that idiot—looks like a bullet straight through the lung. I’ll do what I can.”

She watched as he turned the limp animal over, placed his fingers into the sucking wound, and felt the neck for a pulse. He pulled out a cell phone and spoke quickly with a slight accent.

“It’s a dog. He needs fluids or he’ll bleed out. Just get here. Drive straight across the down in a four-by-four.”

Lanza was dying. She could think of nothing else. The suspect was kneeling. The bastard deserved to die for what he’d done. She was a cop, not a killer. She’d already thrown a punch in anger, but she could and would deny that.

“You’re under arrest. You don’t have to say anything….”

Other officers were everywhere. At a scene of crime guy was bagging up a gun. A detective was talking to the suspect. Lanza was dying. She knelt at his head and stroked back his ear. He flicked open an eye.

“He’s fighting,” said the big man. “Those guys heading for us will be a top team I assure you.”

She watched the bouncing headlights of an approaching Landrover.

“Vets, doctors, or what?”

“Vets, of course. The best. They’re neighbors.”

A man and a woman sprang from the vehicle. Within seconds they had an IV drip running.
