(This story contains scenes of both sex and extreme violence. Please do not read it if you are upset by either. The only actions portrayed I advocate are those of the hero and heroine. Incidentally, anyone who would treat a woman as the opening scene does, well, let's just say they get theirs.)
The woman moaned. This wasn't fun anymore. Hands gripped her wrists and ankles. She was spread-eagled on a cold marble slab of some kind. She dully felt the man enter her, his rigid cock driving immediately up inside her bruised pussy.
She tried to respond, but she no longer cared. She had met this good-looking guy in a club. She remembered having a drink with him, then another after she came back from the ladies room. After that it was hazy. They had left the club and driven around. She had found herself so aroused. When he suggested they have some fun she was all over him. She had freed his cock from his pants and sucked it like a lollipop. She had reached under her own skirt and wiggled her fingers under her panties.
He had stopped the car and slipped out of it, teasing her. She had reached out to him and he had taken her hands, pulling her from the car. They had run into the dimly lit building, down some stairs, she thought, and then into this room. He had taken her in his arms and began to kiss her. His kisses had been demanding, almost brutal, but they only inflamed her desire.
He had stripped her clothes from her and pushed her back onto the slab. In one move he had penetrated her, stifling her cries with a deep kiss. He had ground his body against hers, almost battering her with the deep thrusts of his cock. His bare chest had scraped back and forth over her breasts, making her nipples stiffen and become incredibly sensitive. She had wrapped her arms and legs around him and urged him on.
He said not a word. Harder and harder he thrust into her. Her hips bucked up to him, meeting his every movement. Her mind reeling with the sensations, she felt him swell inside her, and she met his blast of cum with an orgasm of her own. He had withdrawn immediately, pulling away from her attempts to hold him.
Then the nightmare began.
Hands suddenly gripped her ankles and wrists. One by one the men circled her, each one taking a turn with her. One by one they forced their way into her, showing no regard for her, as though she was a lump of meat. Her canal filled with cum till it was overflowing.
She wanted to weep but couldn't. She wanted to resist but was unable to move. She realized she had been drugged. Terrified, she saw the man standing over her head bring the knife up and, breaking the bonds of silence, she screamed as it came towards her...
Sergeant Pat Gibson snapped the disposable gloves on and squatted to lift the cover off the body. Although she had seen a number of dead bodies before, the sight of this one sickened her. She dropped the flap of the plastic bag and stood up.
"The same as the others, Doc?" She asked the tall, thin Medical Examiner.
"The same as the other three, Pat. It appears to be a ritualistic killing of some kind. I suspect I'll find the same drugs in her system too. The same evidence of sexual abuse. I'll call you when I have the autopsy report ready." He hesitated and then stepped to the side, bringing her over with a motion of his hand.
"Have you seen the doctor that Dr Morgenstern and I recommended?"
Pat sighed deeply. "Yes I did, Stan. Thank you, but the answer is the same. Its astounding I was able to conceive Mike, Jr. at all. No more children for Mike and I."
"I'm sorry," assured her friend. "Sheila Morgenstern doesn't make mistakes, but I had hoped."
"So did I. We wanted another child, but Stan, I have so much to be thankful for already. It'll be okay.
Pat's cell phone rang. She answered it. The conversation consisted almost completely of "Yes, Sir" and "No, Sir." After ending the call, she looked at the phone and shrugged.
"They're all over you on this one aren't they Pat?" Dr. Stan Wisder asked.
"Yes, that was the Sheriff himself, asking if I need any help, assuring me of his support and gently reminding me that everyone's ass is going to get hung out if we don't catch this guy. I have four detectives working for me. Every beat officer has descriptions of our Jane Does and instructions to talk to everyone about them. If we could just ID one of them and start a back trail, we might figure this out."
Doggedly Pat and the officers assigned under her followed the case. They took the pictures of the four victims and made the rounds, showing them to cab drivers, store clerks, gas station attendants, any one who had frequent contact with the public.
"We keep coming up empty Mike," Pat said moodily one evening at home. "Nothing anywhere."
"Okay honey, there always is something." Mike replied. Although his career with the sheriff's department had primarily been in uniform, Mike had been an excellent detective as a corporal. "what do we have?"
"We have four women, approximately all the same age, same general appearance. The lab reports indicate they were all murdered with probably the same knife, certainly the same type of knife. They were drugged, probably mixed into a drink."
Mike cut her off. "The drinks, Pat. Hit the clubs in the area they were found. Let's put some feelers out about the underground clubs too." He studied the toxicology reports. "What's this?"
Pat looked over her husband's shoulder. "Yeah, that struck me too. Traces of a chemical compound similar to a pesticide found on the skin of two of the victims. Somehow, that rings a deep bell, but I don't know why. And Mike, this has to be solved and soon. The murders all happened in the new moon, and the next one of those is only a week away."
Pat leaned on the bar of a small underground night club known, rather unoriginally, as The Rave. The uneasy proprietor was protesting his complete innocence of anything to do with selling alcohol without a license or running a business of any kind. Two heavy set bouncers stood nearby. Two equally heavily built uniform officers stood with them.
"I've begun to lose patience with you, Ralph. I don't give a rat's ass about your business dealings and wheelings. However, I can if you keep evading me. On the other hand, cooperate and you record brownie points good towards your next need for a 'Get Out Of Jail Free' card. Tell me about the girls."
"Okay, Sergeant Gibson," the man sighed. He laughed. "Its true what the word on the street is." Pat cocked her head and made a come on gesture. "As tough as everyone knows your husband is, they say its worse to cross you." He held up his hand. "Yes, I know positively the last girl was in here. I remember her sitting at the bar, and the creepy guy who picked her up."
"Creepy? How so?"
"Just made my skin crawl is all I can tell you."
"Okay, Ralph. Seriously, here's my card. Office and cell phone numbers are on it." Pat laid down a picture of the last victim, showing the wounds she had suffered. The owner sucked in his breath and turned green. "Call me if you see him again."
"I will." He looked at the picture again. "You can count on it. Someone who would do that... well, I don't cover for things like that."
Four days later, on the night of the new moon, Pat's cell phone rang, about an hour before dusk.
"Sergeant Gibson? Its Ralph. The guy was in here and he just left with some female. She's about 25, blonde and wearing a black dress and shoes. I'm sorry, I was back in the storeroom and just saw them leaving. I had Tiny go out after them but they were already gone."
"Thanks Ralph. You get one big point for this. If you ever need it, call me." Pat rushed from the office and into her car. She called Mike and told him what was going on.
"What do you think Pat? Where could they be going?"
"Mike, I don't know." She paused, "Why does that chemical compound keep ringing in my ears? It means something but I can't think of what."
"Talk it through, honey," her husband advised.
"Okay, its similar to the inhibiting agent found in commercial pesticides. There are traces only, on the skin, not ingested."
"What is it Mike?" Through the phone she could gear him call to their older daughter Carol he had to go out. Then she heard first the back door and then a car door slam.
"There's an abandoned pesticide plant out about 5 miles off State Highway 27. The EPA closed it years ago. How damn stupid can I be?"
"Give me directions and I'll meet you there."
Mike and Pat arrived at almost the same moment at the falling down gates leading through the fence line surrounding the plant. Without fanfare they slowly drove their cars through the half ruined factory. Pat suddenly turned into an alley between two buildings. Mike followed and they both got out.
"Fresh tire tracks," He pointed out.
"And there," following Pat's finger Mike saw a high heel shoe laying by a metal door. "Ralph at The Rave told me the woman was wearing black, including her shoes."
Suddenly Pat shivered. A breeze began to whistle down the alley. She wrapped her arms around herself.
"Mike, is it just me or is it getting colder?" She took a deep breath. "And what in God's name is that smell? Its not chemicals, it smells like, like..."
"Like dead bodies in an open grave." Mike answered quietly. "I remember it from the Gulf."
