The cops eventually showed up at school. Cate knew they would. When a guy like Kingman Duncan gets killed, people pay attention. Questions get asked. The police want answers. So we were expecting them and we had answers ready.
It was a week after Homecoming but the posters were still up all over the school.
Go fighting Scots!
Dunsinane H.S. rules!
As far as the cops were concerned, they had a whole high school full of suspects, kids who might have stabbed Duncan. Studies have shown that popular kids get bullied as often as the misfits do. My experience suggests they probably deserve it.
I wasn’t going to shed any tears over dead Duncan and neither were my sisters.
We didn’t do it, but we knew who did.
We weren’t going to throw him under the bus.
Unless we had to.
