Midnight on New Year’s Eve, the beginning of another year. Dee gazed upwards, watching fireworks bursting in rainbow colours, filling the night sky over New York with light. It was a spectacular display, a celebration of the year just ended and a symbol of hope for the one ahead; anything was possible because everybody was starting over with a clean slate.
The last twelve months had been eventful, working hard, chasing the bad guys, sometimes even catching them, but the man whose heart Dee wanted to capture more than anything still eluded him.
Maybe this year would be different.
