Challenge: 66: Faith at drabble_weekly.
Spoilers/Setting: Before the manga.
Summary: Dee sometimes struggles to maintain faith in the face of what he sees at work.
Disclaimer: I don’t own FAKE, or the characters. They belong to the wonderful Sanami Matoh.
Dee was raised Catholic, but he sometimes wonders whether that’s a help or a hindrance in his line of work. Cops deal with the worst that humans can do to each other, and murders are only part of it.
Witnessing what he does in the course of a workday often makes him wonder how God can allow people to commit such crimes against each other, ripping apart families and destroying lives.
He wants to believe in an afterlife, because that would mean victims move on to something better after death, but…
Too often, he struggles to hold on to faith.
