Ephemera 6

by P. R. Zed

Hutch explodes out of the court house with the judge's words still ricocheting around his mind. Insufficient evidence. Procedural inconsistencies. Case dismissed.

He kicks a hapless mailbox in his path and wonders how he can continue to do this job when his faith in the system is daily sucked away.

At least he can always depend on Starsky's stubborn belief that justice will be done.

He looks up to see concerned blue eyes staring at him from a face that seems older and less certain than it should. And Hutch wonders, has Starsky lost faith in justice, or in him?
