Chase, part twelve: Jack

(Start with Part One)

The next few days were a hell of paperwork. Blake and his suits bugged out of town with their coma patient - who woke up twice on the way back to the station, screaming every time - leaving Lacey and I to justify the whole thing. We told the Captain the FBI had closed the case, told the parents the perp was in federal custody, and told ourselves we didn't want to know what had really happened.

After all, if I knew the story behind that scream, I might go a little crazy myself.
