DV Ch. 26 - Fire in the hole!

*winks at mark_clark*

It clocks in at 2858 words before editiing.  So, without further ado...

Clark set the heavy piece of marble down gently and soundlessly, looking deeply disturbed. “This doesn’t make sense at all.” His brow furrowed, deep blue eyes seeming to intensify. “I was sure that the substandard concrete was the link between all of the L & V buildings. But this one is ten years older than any of them…”
 
Lois completed his thought, “And built long before the company existed. Or before Mitchener held public office.”  
 
He nodded shortly, and jerked his head to the side.
 
“What?” she asked in a hushed voice.
 
“Two police officers are doing a circuit of the building. We’d better get moving…” Without preamble, he placed his hands firmly around her arms. She clamped her mouth shut to keep from crying out in surprise as the world spun into a blur of motion… and they were suddenly standing in an alley across the street from the collapse.
 
Lois released a heavy breath and tried to get her bearings. What a way to avoid being caught!

It should be posted tomorrow some time.  Morning if I'm lucky, and my betas aren't too busy.  Afternoon if not.  Ta ta!
