Narrator's voice talking about:
I was distracted and shaken out of my thought when Detective Pruitt lifted Benjamin up with one hand, and slammed him against the wall. “Tell us what we need to know right now or this will be the last time you’ll ever be looking up at the sky!”
Detective Pruitt was undoubtedly full of surprises. He hadn’t said a single word since the beginning of the interrogation, but now he happened to be the mean bully. No one understood what he meant by the threat though, but it sure made Benjamin so scared that he trembled.
“Ohey, ohey,” Benjamin said, trying to breathe. “Haw suhl.”
“What the hell did you say?” Detective Pruitt asked, maintaining his firm grip on Benjamin.
“Haw suhl. Haw—”
“Let go of his fucking throat, will you?” Detective Slaughter butted in. “He sounds like a dying frog.”
Detective Pruitt let go of Benjamin’s neck, and he dropped on his knees, holding his neck with both hands and coughing with difficulty.
“What the hell was all that croaking about, boy?” Detective Slaughter asked.
“In case you didn’t notice, Detective Dinosaur here had his limbs around my neck. Even you would sound like a dying frog if your neck was squeezed,” Benjamin said, and paused briefly, finally catching his breath. “I was trying to say ‘okay, I’ll talk’.”
