As they walk out of the police station, Eleanor is fuming. ”That asshole insulted me and called me little lady, ” she growls. She takes a deep breath. ”Sorry. ”

”Nothing to apologize for, ” Herbert assures her. ”He should learn that women aren unqualified. And you should learn to control your anger. ”

”Control my anger!? Police officers have grown arrogant just because they are a few centimeters taller than me. They also act as if I should bow down at their feet. Who does that? ”

Herbert looks at her, confused. ”What? ”

”The way they treat women. Don they understand that women have lives? ”

”Don be too angry- ”

”What, are you one of them too? ” Eleonor shoves him.

”Hey, look at me. ” Herbert puts his hands on her shoulder. ”Don let it get to you. Think calmly and look at the situation. You can change anyone, but you can use their situation to your advantage. ”

She huffs quietly. ”Fine. ” She lowers her hands to her side. ”Lets continue searching. ”

”Are you sure you want to continue walking with me, my lady? ” He smirks slightly. ”I thought you might want to stay away from me. ”

Eleanor frowns. ”I thought you liked me. ”

This mans teasing me too much. If this goes on, Ill put laxatives in his coffee.

They loiter around until the time is approaching 9 in the morning. At 8:55, the two friends stand outside the police station. The officers are nowhere to be seen.

They step inside and walk past the counter. A few policemen are working on the computers at the side of the room. The computers aren clean and look like theyve been recycled and repaired countlessly. There are stacks of papers everywhere on the desks.

They approach the receptionist.

”Can I help you? ” She sounds bored as she speaks, her eyes glued to the computer screen. She looks up at them with disinterest.

Her left cheek has a number tattoo on it, and her uniform looks slightly different from the others. It appears she wears a similar badge to theirs, only it has an extra square symbol attached to it.

”Uhh, Im Dr. Newton, ” Herbert says, holding his breath for a second; he is in disbelief.

She stares back at him in silence. Then, without glancing at him once, she reaches over the counter. She types something on a keypad and turns her chair around. She continues typing, ignoring everyone else in the room.

She continues for several seconds. Then the phone rings.

”Thats for you, Dr. Newton. ” the woman says without looking at him. She turns back around and continues typing.

A young officer enters the room, handing a piece of paper to the receptionist. ”Have a nice day, doc! ” he smiles widely at him.

The young officer walks towards Herbert and gives him a smile and a wave. He then walks out.

He then walks out.

Herbert goes to the phone on the wall and gets the receiver.

”Hello? ” he answers tentatively.

”This is the police speaking. Can you confirm your ID number, please, Mr… Newton? ” A voice asks through the speaker.

Oh shit! ”Uh, I can definitely get my I.D number in the future. But Im afraid my ID number is classified. ”

There is quiet for a moment. ”Can I ask for our identity card number? ”

Oh shit

”Dr. Newtons ID number is 23207777! ” Eleanor says.

There is silence on the other side. The police officer clears his throat. ”Is what the woman says true? ”

”Yes, officer, ” Herbert says, trusting her completely.

”Its true, my ID is 23207877, but my name is not registered. My ID numbers are classified, so if someone asks me my ID number, it will show as 23107777 instead. ”

”Okay, thank you for confirming this. Please leave a piece of contact information for our investigators so we can call you again whenever. Have a good day. ”

”Thank you. ”

He hangs up the phone and sighs.

”So, what did they say? ” Eleanor asks curiously.

”You saved my ass. ” Herbert chuckles.

”So, what did they say? ” Eleanor asks impatiently.

”They bought it. ”

Herbert pauses. ”The police bought my ID number. ”

”What? ”

”They scanned their database and saw a Dr. Newton. ”
