Remember, you’re not as young and agile as your partner. As you duck down you feel the bullet enter your body. One sudden sting as another follows. Soon you are decorated with holes as your own blood leaves your body. \n\nGuess trying to hide wasn’t the best option, you should have retired last year.\n\n[[DEAD.|Dead]]
You watch as the first couple of cop cars arrive. A blonde gets out, you know her well. What? Affairs happen all the time, its not like your wife knows. \n\nIt doesn’t take long before you explain what happened to Sandy, the blonde. She gives you a smile and seems to look understanding. \n\nThe man and woman are placed into the back of cop cars and before you know it you too are in cuffs and being led by Sandy. Your badge is on the line. They check the house and the two men you killed. None of the guns are loaded but everyone is under the influence.\n\nWhat doesn’t look good is the fact your partner is snitching out on you for every small illegal thing you have done while on the force. Not to mention the call for back up was delayed when dealing with a hostile situation.\n\nTry as you might it matters little what you have to say. Now the law will have its say against you.\n\nKiss your badge goodbye.\n\nEnd.
As you duck down you avoid the first few shots, machine guns are quite powerful. Bullets ping off the car. As you sit there you realize the only way you're gonna survive this if he dies, you're cornered after all. \n\nMoving towards the rear of the vehicle you stay low. You got one shot at this. Imagine the fame you could get? Positioning yourself to glance around the back bumper you feel the bullet enter your body and then darkness.\n\nBOOM HEADSHOT!\n\n[[DEAD.|Dead]]
[[Intro]]
** SWITCH **\n\nWhy did you get stuck with the old senile cop? The moment you saw him take the woman as his own hostage you thought him to be superman now he was just trying to get you killed. Along the driveway is parked a couple of blinged out Mercedes. They provide coverage and the ability to sneak.\n\nAs you take in the situation you notice something painted on the house. Where the siding has loosened there are parts of a symbol painted with flaking red paint.\n\nIts too bad you know very little about the gang.\n\nGlancing up you see a gun aimed directly at you from the window. About this time your idiotic partner has removed the gun from the man on the porch.\n\n[[Kill The Man In The Window|Kill man]]\n\n[[Move!|Move right]]
You ignore Mr. Hot Shot, what does he know he literally almost got you killed. Time to let the law that you have lived by forever take over and decide your fate.\n\nStill pointing your gun at the man on the porch you tell him to get down. He laughs at you. Your partner has apprehended the female while you take the man into your own hands. A brief struggle he soon gives up and falls down to his knees. Placing your gun away you get his arms behind his back and cuff him.\n\nJust as you do so you hear the door behind you open. Apparently the man you shot wasn’t the only one in the house.\n\n[[Turn Slowly|Turn]]\n\n[[Shoot The Figure Behind You|Shoot]]
** SWITCH **\n\nThe shots are distracting enough that you throw the woman to the ground and hold your weapon up. A direct angle of the man on the porch. Side stepping until you can see your partner and his lifeless body.\n\nShit.\n\nMaybe you should have looked at the direction of blood spatter and maybe how the holes are on his body. Next thing you know you are meeting the cold unforgiving ground. Eyes meeting the man who you did an awful job at protecting or working with.\n\nIn your next life you are getting a new partner because this is clearly his fault.\n\nDEAD.
Forget it. You’ve seen enough here you may as well handle this woman. Clearly she is under the influence and who knows how much your partner has been paying attention. Children, they were a terrible distraction.\n\nYou approach the woman and using that deep authoritative voice you say simply. “You called in about the robbery?”\n\nShe doesn’t answer; she is testing your patience now. Instead she turns from you.\n\n[[Demand Authority|Authority]]\n\n[[Call Your Partner Over|Call partner]]
You’re a quick draw, the academy always admired your ability to draw your weapon on a whims notice. Not always the smartest choice when trying to diffuse situations. Aiming it towards the man you scream.\n\n“PUT THE GUN DOWN!”\n\nIt works in the movies right?\n\nYour partner can be seen from the corner of your eye, crouched down and awaiting a signal. The man is growing irritated, he readies his gun. You realize, you need a distraction.\n\n[[Grab The Man’s Wife|Grab]]\n\n[[Turn The Attention To Your Partner|Attention]]
You’re quick with the cuffs snapping them around the woman’s wrist your gun not far behind, still focusing on the man. Its then you realize you haven’t heard from your partner in a couple of minutes.\n\n[[Get The Gun|Get gun]]
Your life is in danger and only one of you may make it out alive; it may as well be you.\n\nShots ring out, you shoot the man in the window. Glass shatters, falling towards the driveway in a rain of shards. His body follows with a loud thud.\n\nDucking down you move around the front of the car gun still drawn just as your partner is apprehending the woman. Focusing on the well built man on the porch.\n\n“We got you mother fucker!”\n\nFinally you're going to do something smart. Time for some back up.\n\n[[Continue Calling|Calling]]
This neighborhood is grungy. Broken bottles scatter the road and sidewalk. The home itself is in rough shape, not even a coat of paint could fix its exterior. Places like this in the city should just be gutted. A gang affiliated sign is spray painted on one of the doors. That hostage situation is looking better by the minute.\n\nA woman stands outside distraught. She isn’t making sense and its clear she’s on drugs. She paces around screaming at anything from a blade of grass to the mailbox. Your partner looks at you. Maybe it’s time to think about yourself.\n\n [[Let Your Partner Talk To Her|Talk to her]]\n\n [[You’re The ‘Hot Shot Cop’ So You Do It|Do it yourself]]
Without warning you draw your gun and turn. Shooting immediately you didn’t think once to look before you did so. So much for being a veteran. An unarmed man now lays dead, he looks to be about twenty. That won’t go over real well with the Sergeant. \n\nThe man you just hand cuffed begins to cry while calling out for his deceased son. Your partner shakes his head. A scream of sirens can be heard in the distance. This whole situation is beginning to unravel. \n\nThe woman on the ground is now the least of your problems.\n\n[[Wait For The Cops|Wait for]]\n\n[[Leave|Go]]
You've seen this all before. Right now things are looking grim and maybe the hostage situation was the better choice. Though you have little time to consider that right now.\n\n“PUT THE GUN DOWN!”\n\nIt works in the movies right?\n\nYour partner can be seen from the corner of your eye, crouched down and awaiting a signal. The man is growing irritated, he readies his gun. You realize, you may need a distraction.\n\n[[Grab The Man’s Wife|Grab wife]]\n\n[[Turn The Attention To Your Partner|Attention]]
You watch as the first couple of cop cars arrive. \n\nA blonde gets out, she’s a real looker. Your partner is gone. It doesn’t take long before you explain what happened to Sandy, the blonde. She gives you a smile and seems to look understanding. \n\nThe man and woman are placed into the back of cop cars and before you know it you too are in cuffs and being led by Sandy. Your badge is on the line. They check the house and the two men you killed. None of the guns are loaded but everyone is under the influence.\n\nWhat doesn’t look good is the fact your partner ran and you chose to ignore your actual duty of going to the hostage situation. Not to mention the call for back up was delayed when dealing with a hostile situation.\n\nTry as you might it matters little what you have to say. Now the law will have its say against you.\n\nKiss your badge goodbye.\n\nEnd.

Dragging your hostage along with you for leverage you head towards the gun. Better to be in your possession rather then the hands of the enemy. Bringing a foot forward you kick the gun backwards.\n\nJust as you reach for your cuffs to finally take this woman in shots are suddenly fired.\n\nDid you forget about that gang sign? What about your partner? \n\n[[See How Your Partner Faired|Faired]]\n\n[[Apprehend The Woman First|Woman]]
You ignore Mr. Retired, what does he know he literally almost got you killed. Time to let the law that you have lived by forever take over and decide your fate.\n\nStill pointing your gun at the man on the porch you tell him to get down. He laughs at you. Your partner has apprehended the female while you take the man into your own hands. A brief struggle he soon gives up and falls down to his knees.

** SWITCH **\n\nStraightening from apprehending the woman you watch the door open. Your partner turns swiftly and shoots the unarmed man before you can even get a word out. This situation is looking grim.\n\nThis is your hide on the line and you know this. Forget these guys and your partner you aren’t about to lose your badge to this.\n\nYou walk from the situation, briskly, until the sirens grow closer. Now you run. Maybe you should have stuck with becoming a mechanic. Less bullshit to deal with.\n\nMaking the situation worse for yourself when you return home and tell your wife you’re both leaving you get out of town just in time before the cops come for you. On the run for a couple of years soon the law catches up with you.\n\nTen years in the slammer. Enjoy hot shot.\n\nEnd.
You slowly glance over your shoulder. Your partner suddenly shouts at you that its just a young man unarmed. Calmly you ask him to walk out where you can see him. He obliges and takes a seat on the steps.\n\nAfter questioning him you find out the strained relations between him and his parents along with the gang affiliations his family has.\n\nCop cars begin to pull up. Before the hot shot can get a word out you explain the situation and Sandy, the blonde good looking cop lets you know she will take it from here. A few cover ups will happen, you’re the veteran and they have your back.\n\nYou and the hot shot get back into the car, you make the decision to head to the hostage situation.\n\nHostage
“Fuck this. I am not in the mood to leave behind the wife. Let’s go check out that robbery.” Reaching over you flick the button for the lights and accelerate in the direction of Lark Lane. No big deal, you can figure out later your reason behind avoiding the hostage situation.\n\n[[Go to the Robbery|Goto]]
**SWITCH** \n\nYour partner gives you a shove. “Go ahead and talk to her I am going to canvas.” First rookie mistake you think. Some ‘hot shot cop’ he is.\n\nApproaching the woman she seems to be shaking now. You reach a hand out towards her. “Miss.” She jerks her arm away from you, no part of her wants anything to do with you. Good thing you have patience, but it’s clear she isn’t in the right frame of mind. The influence of drugs can be seen in her hazed over eyes.\n\n[[Place Her Under Arrest|Arrest]] \n\n[[Continue to Talk To Her|Talk]]
This was not something they taught you at the academy. You are such a control freak, the need to have the upper hand is always riding you hard. Without so much a thought you now have the woman in a head lock, gun touching her temple. The situation escalates further as the man on the porch nearly growls beneath his breath. His gun is still pointed directly at you.\n\n“Put the gun down or I’ll blow her god damn brains all over the lawn!”\n\nIt takes a second for the words to sink in. The man on the porch now smiles at you, a deep chuckle filling the air. Clearly his wife means something to him. He begins to lower the gun.\n\n“I said down!”\n\nYou bark another order. He throws the gun towards your feet while your grip tightens on the woman. She lets out a pitiful moan, still rambling in slurred speech.\n\n[[Get The Gun|Gun]]\n\n[[Handcuff The Woman|Woman]]
Dragging your hostage along with you for leverage you head towards the gun. Better to be in your possession rather then the hands of the enemy. Bringing a foot forward you kick the gun backwards.\n\nJust as you pull the woman back to bend down and reach for the gun shots are suddenly fired.\n\nDid you forget about that gang sign? What about your partner? \n\n[[See How Your Partner Faired|Faired]]
Your hand clenches into a fist as memories of your old temper come flaring back. You try again and when she tries to push your hand away you grab her and throw her to the ground. Knee coming to her back she cries out. Cuffs removed you manage to apprehend her when you hear the cocking of a gun.\n\nA shirtless man decorated with tattoos stands on the decaying porch with a large rifle in hand; its sure to blow your brains out. He now aims it directly at you. \n\n“Get away from my wife.”\n\n[[Draw Your Own Weapon|Weap]]\n\n[[Step Back With Your Hands Up|Step back]]\n
** SWITCH **\n\nApparently they were allowing anyone these days to graduate from the academy. The moment you saw him take the woman as his own hostage you knew you were doomed. Along the driveway is parked a couple of blinged out Mercedes. They provide coverage and the ability to sneak.\n\nYou’re older, reflexes do not work as well. As you take in the situation you notice something painted on the house. Where the siding has loosened there are parts of a symbol painted with flaking red paint.\n\nThis gang has killed quite a few cops on the force since you’ve been there.\n\nGlancing up you see a gun aimed directly at you from the window. About this time your idiotic partner has removed the gun from the man on the porch.\n\n[[Kill The Man In The Window|Kill]]\n\n[[Move!|Move]]
There comes a time in every man or womans life where you wish you had back up. This situation was never supposed to escalate like this but now that you're here you may as well go big or go six underground.\n\n“Put the gun down you don't want to go out like this.”\n\nYou've always wanted to use that line.\n\nIt takes a second for the words to sink in. The man on the porch now smiles at you, a deep chuckle filling the air. Clearly his wife means something to him. He begins to lower the gun.\n\n“I said down!”\n\nYou bark another order. He throws the gun towards your feet while your grip tightens on the woman. She lets out a pitiful moan, still rambling in slurred speech.\n\n[[Get The Gun|Get Gun]]
Moving around the woman you decide to stand in front of her putting your back to that gang sign. Did you forget about that? Someone within the house is watching you and in minutes the door is pulled open. A shirtless man decorated with tattoos stands on the decaying porch with a large rifle in hand; its sure to blow your brains out. He now aims it directly at you. \n\n“Get away from my wife.”\n\n[[Draw Your Own Weapon|Draw]]\n\n[[Step Back With Your Hands Up|Step back]]
Player One Begins.\n\nMayhaven is a small city with a population of roughly seven thousand. Being the local hot shot cop many know your name. You were injured a few cases back, lucky for you the bullet exited your body rather than staying put.\n\n You have a lot of love for your partner as most cops do. Generally after your shift you head out for a beer unless your wife beckons you home early to a fresh cooked meal. No kids but your partner as two.\n\n A call comes in over the radio. “Suspect on lock down all available units head over to the docks. May have a hostage inside.”\n\n You and your partner give a glance to the radio before looking to one another. Another voice comes through. ‘Robbery on Lark Lane looking for any available units not headed to the hostage situation.’ A decision must be made.\n\n\n[[Robbery|Robbery]]\n\n\n
Your life is in danger and only one of you may make it out alive; it may as well be you.\n\nShots ring out, you shoot the man in the window. Glass shatters, falling towards the driveway in a rain of shards. His body follows with a loud thud.\n\nDucking down you move around the front of the car gun still drawn just as your partner is apprehending the woman. Focusing on the well built man on the porch.\n\n“Hands up!”\n\nTouching the radio on your shoulder you start to call in back up even as your partner tells you not to.\n\n[[Continue Calling|Call]]
** SWITCH **\n\nYou were always a honrable man but when it comes to protecting what you have, since you have a lot more to lose, you will gladly get the hell out of town.\n\nHeading back to the station you explain your part of what happened. All lies. They seem to have bought it for now. It gives you a couple days turn over time to leave.\n\nPicking up your family you head North of the border. No one will think to look in Canada!\n\nNow you're an alcoholic and a game of Russian Roulette seems to be the best way out of this situation. Spinning the dial you cock the gun and place it into your mouth.\n\nYou never really did like being a cop.\n
Dragging your hostage along with you for leverage you head towards the gun. Better to be in your possession rather then the hands of the enemy. Bringing a foot forward you kick the gun backwards.\n\nJust as you reach for your cuffs to finally take this woman in shots are suddenly fired. Your stomach sinks. \n\n[[See How Your Partner Faired|Live]]
