“Does Commander Kornbluth also believe I was the one who’s controlling this case?”
“Are you not?”
Tina takes a deep breath, her throat is in pain by the choking, but she holds it back.
“Allow me to ask you a question, Commander. I am just a sick woman who worked as a secretary in a TV company. How could I possibly know that Shane McCutcheon was being transferred to another city, and arranged a great bunch of rebels for a prison break?”
“Because you are Justine Cooper.”
“Commander…” Tina sighs. “Even if I were a brilliant criminal who could order an entire organization, Senator Buckley’s power is still way stronger than the woman Justine Cooper, she has the trust from the society, sources from the media, and people everywhere…Tell me, how possibly could a woman who is a criminal, be more powerful than her?”
“She’s just a politician.”
“And look at how she manipulated you, sir,” Tina smirks. “Moreover, I’ve heard that the great brain of the criminal group was dead, Detective Porter confirmed herself with her own life standing in the middle of the organization, how could she be wrong? And if Justine Cooper was truly alive, how could she possibly knew that the prisoner was being taken to another place?”
Aaron’s face falls. “weren’t you the one who sent the message to me?”
Tina tilts her head, her face is so innocent, even Aaron can’t look through her.
The Commander slightly frowns, not happy that this woman didn’t fall for the trap. He clears his throat.
“The message Justine Cooper left me, a note, asked about if I still remembered her.”
“Do you know this Justine Cooper?”
“Well, then, this Justin Cooper must be very arrogant, and smart. Commander, among all the people in the FBI, among all the people who’ve investigated the Coopers case, why, a woman who you’ve never met before, would ask for you?”
Aaron Kornbluth says nothing.
“I have no reason to be against you, Commander. As you can see, I just engaged with my girlfriend and I have a son, I am really happy with my life. There is no benefit for me to stay on the opposite side of you, all I want to do is cooperate with the FBI and leave this place and head home as soon as possible, my body cannot tolerate the cold weather of Washington. If there’s anything I knew about the case I would tell you already, why bother procrastinating till now?”
