If only... XD
Why "code four", by the way? 0.o
Four is a cool number.
Code makes it sound somewhat authoritive.Also:
I posted something I wrote a while ago on my website, it's a pretty big wall of text so I'll only post an extract here:
I discovered the scene on a cold, wet Tuesday morning on the streets, at first I couldn’t believe my eyes, but that was likely due to the drizzling rain fogging up my glasses. I wiped my glasses on my trousers to clear them up and blinked in disbelief. A vibrant red sports car was parked on the dull double yellow lines.
A blatant disregard to justice.
The quiet scene was disrupted by a sudden voice,
“Should probably write them a ticket,” it was my partner, Erikson; he was tall, dark and not very handsome.
“I’m going to,” I replied quietly, concentrating on writing the ticket. To my dismay my ball-point pen wasn’t working, making faint imprints on the paper. “Do you have a pen?” I asked.
“Uh,” Erikson began to pat himself down, “I’m sure I did have one,” he checked his pockets – twice. “If I did have one, I don’t know. It might have fallen out of my pocket.” He checked his left pocket a third time. “Uh-huh, it definitely fell out, there’s a hole in this pocket.”
I cursed under my breath, at this rate the Double Yellow Offender would get off scot-free. On any other day he, or she for that matter, would, but this isn’t any other day. This is my day on the streets, and no violator of the law gets by on my watch.
