  1. David Carson
    With: David Carson, @Aanyone who wants to join (not necessary to do so) Location: Kodiak Police Department car park When: May 2017 Time of Day: Late Afternoon  

    The sound of a girl shouting something about being free at last, broke Dave out of his thoughts.  He had just finished fixing a computer in the records room that had decided at some point earlier in the day to stop working and was about to leave.  It had been a case of another old computer that should have been replaced ages ago.  The Kodiak Police Department ran a shoestring budget, with the money going to more important things than keeping up with technology.  Still, he was grateful for the work and smiled when he remembered how fortunate he had been to get the contract to be the Department's I.T. expert so soon after arriving.
    The job was an on-call one and it fitted in well with his other work commitments.  There weren't too many people in town who did or had his expertise in his line of work, so it had been easy to find a few clients and make a fairly decent living.  Freelance work had also given him the opportunity to find out about more of the island and the people who lived there.
    As he continued to watch the young woman, he saw her being joined by a few others.  One, he recognised as Lucian MacLeod.  He hadn't met the man, but he knew who he was.  His brother, Mark probably knew more than he did about the MacLeod and his family but wasn't letting on how much.   The MacLeod family were well-respected and when news of the shooting came, both he and Mark were concerned.
    They had been living here for about nine months and the place seemed to relatively trouble free.  Sure, there had been the usual crime sprees and Mark had even been hired as security consultant and investigator for a couple of businesses who had been hit by a spate of robberies but nothing like the shooting that happened the other day.  It seemed to Dave that people like Liam and Naomi MacLeod could be targets then anybody could.  When he had voiced this concern to Mark, he could sense Mark was thinking that there was more to it.
    For over ten years, Mark's life had been and was still a mystery to him.  The only contact he had had with his older brother during these years was an email address.  Dave would send emails on a regular basis but only received a reply every now and then.  When their parents had been killed in the car accident, Dave had been relieved to find out that Mark hadn't totally locked him out.  Mark had given him an apology of sorts but declined to go further into the reasons why he stayed away for so long.  Then,  a month or so after the accident, Mark had decided to stay and give up whatever it was that he had been doing, Dave decided not to question it.   To have Mark around for good, was more than he had hoped for and he knew with time, Mark may even learn to trust him enough to tell him what he had been doing all those years.
    After watching the group for a few more minutes, Dave decided it was time to leave.  He closed the trunk and made his way to the driver door.
