T.E.R.S.E. Headquarters, Belle City, 12:01p.m

"Heath, we've still got no lead in this case, but I'm happy to say that Henry is much better. This same thing has happened to him a couple times before. It's a condition he was born with. I guess you're done for the day. You can head home if you'd like." Terrance offered.

"What? You're not going to even look into this case further?" Raphael asked.

"Like I said before, we still have no lead for this case. There's nothing to look in to."

"Someone is missing and we need to do the best we can do to find her."

"I know, and we are. We're doing everything we can."

"She's too young for something to happen to her. I did some digging earlier in her file. Did you know that she's a mother of a two year old girl?"

"Raphael, you're done for the day. Take a break and I promise you, we will find her."

Raphael grabbed his jacket and headed to the elevator.

The Coffee Shop, Belle City, 12:35p.m, One Week Later

Denella collected her coffee and walked past the line of people. There, sitting down at a table, was Raphael. He closed his Apple laptop, and stuffed it into the laptop case.

"Fancy seeing you here." His deep voice said.

"Well, it's not my fault you're following me." Denella smiled as Raphael stood up. Together, they walked out of The Coffee Shop.

"Shouldn't you be at work?" Denella questioned.

"Shouldn't you?" He answered in a question.

"I asked you first."

"Fine. I was sent home today, again like I was for the past week now, because, apparently, we have no lead, and they're not going to look into this case anymore until we do."

"That's dumb, but at least you'll be going back to work tomorrow."

"Aren't you?"

"My boss suspended me last week, and I won't be going back until a week from now."

"Wow, two weeks. That's harsh. What'd you do?"

"Since I failed at returning the diamond, I was assigned a partner. His name is Brandon Switz. First, we went to the Sanfield Pub to see if we could find out anything. When we were looking in the back, I took his phone and weapons and locked him in the storage room. So, this is basically your fault because I didn't return the diamond."

"My fault? You're blaming it on me?" He laughed. "Wow, that's gold. How did your boss find out?" Raphael interrogated.

"Brandon made 'something' and sent out a signal. Because of that, my boss believes that he's able to go out on missions by himself. He's never even trained before!"
