Sophia Cloud

Sophia Cloud

by DarkJade



Sophia Cloud sits alone in a cold grey room with artificial lighting.

Her body is slim, and she is wearing a short white suede skirt, and a silky cream colored blouse.

Her face pretty, lips soft pink, and slightly thin. But not too thin. Her eyes are a light, bright blue.

But her most notable feature is that of her brightly dyed red orange hair, cut into something more than sheik.

Not to mention her two thousand dollar white high heals, which are extremely high.

As she sits waiting for the police to come into the room, she is calm. Extremely calm.

Meanwhile behind dark glass Detective John Hollings watches with is partner Detective Lolette Jones.

John is an average looking fellow… With a fairly rugged partial beard, and black hair.

Meanwhile Lolette is an average looking black woman, who looks like she really doesn’t like Sophia Cloud, without yet meeting her.

After maybe twenty minutes of watching Sophia Cloud behind the glass, she at last looks up at the glass, as if she knows she’s being watched.

John looks at Lolette “Lets do this”.

The two of them then enter the questioning room, which barely affects Sophia’s countenance.

Lolette sits across from Sophia, as John stands back against the wall behind Lolette.

Sophia finally looks up at Lolette.

“Hello Mrs. Cloud, I’m Detective Jones… And this is my partner Detective Hollings” speaks Lolette.

“Hello” Sophia softly replies as her eyes shift to John.

This makes him slightly uneasy.

She then looks back at Lolette.

“Do you know why you’re here Mrs. Cloud?” asks Lolette.

Sophia doesn’t respond right away.

“No” she finally replies.

John then leans over the table as if to intimidate her.

“When’s the last time you saw your Husband Markus Cloud?” he asks.

She does not look at him “May I smoke?” she asks.

“Smoking’s not permitted in the building…” Lolette starts to say, but John touches her arm indicating it’s fine.

Sophia then takes out a gold cigarette box, opens it, and takes out a fairly long, expensive cigarette.

John takes out a lighter and lights it.

She takes a long hit “Thank you” she responds, not looking at him.

“Two days ago… My husband is out of town on business” she replies.

Detective Hollings looks back at Lolette, and steps back once again.

“Your Husband is dead Mrs. Cloud” Lolette explains.

Sophia stops mid puff of her cigarette as a tear comes to her soft blue eyes.

She then continues to take a hit, a longer one this time.

“What?” she then asks.

“You’re saying you don’t know anything about it…” John states bluntly.

Sophia Cloud looks up at Detective Hollings… Anger, and hints of tears in her eyes.

“No Detective… Not until Detective Jones just informed me” she then looks back at Detective Jones.

“Can I have a moment…” Sophia suddenly says.

Lolette looks at John, who nods in agreement.

Lolette then stands “We’ll give you a couple moments to collect yourself”.

The two then step out of the room.

Sophia then sits holding her cigarette, her hand shaking, she takes another hit.

Just as Detective Jones and Detective Hollings return to the hidden room behind the dark glass, the fire alarm sprinklers go off in the questioning room where Sophia is.

“What the hell!” Lolette starts to head out of the room to turn them off, but John grabs her arm.

“Wait…” John says as he watches Sophia continue to smoke, without reacting to the sprinklers water coming down upon her.

“The cigarette isn’t even lit anymore, and she’s still smoking” he says.

Lolette looks at him “She’s in shock about her Husband’s death” she says as she continues out of the room, and into the other to take Sophia out.

Meanwhile Sophia looks as though she’s looking straight through the dark glass at Detective Hollings as she’s taken out of the room.

  1. As always your ability to describe and produce effective dialogue blows me away, I can’t wait to read more.

    • Thank you so much Anna… This one was in my head when I woke up yesterday… I thought you might like it, but didn’t really get to the parts I thought you’d like, Lol… Didn’t want it to get too long for this First Post.
