Day 120b of 365

Day 120b of 365

 

Flash Fiction: (Please read with a gravelly Noo York accent, which I can’t do)

 

Part 2

3 months later – Scruffmeister and I still meet at the same Italian joint to pick up our assignments. We’re the best crime fighting duo the city’s seen in decades. No low life, rodent, scoundrel or dirty, rotten thief is safe when the Scruffmeister and Sweets handle the case. The chief says we’re being put forward for the Mayor’s Award, “Sweets, Scruffmeister – that’s the highest citation ever awarded in this precinct. You make us proud. The neighbourhood’s safe again and it’s all down to you, the Sweets and Scruffmeister Duo”.

 

“We’re just doing our job chief, just doing our job. Come on Sweets, let’s go to Zia Lucia’s and grab a bite before we hit that beat again”.

 

I was doubtful at first. I had to admit it, the Chief was right. Scruffmeister and I were the best crime fighting duo the precinct has seen. Ever. I just wish the Scruffmeister would wear a little more deodorant every now and then, you know.

 

(Some say I watch far too much TV, I would say I don’t watch nearly enough)
