In the “I’d Rather Die Than …” category comes this little tale of a police officer and an off-duty cop when a “disruption” hits.
Albeit re-written to an extent, this story was originally called “Interrupted” and first appeared on June 12, 2014. Please enjoy.
The people in the street screamed. Officer Carson drew his gun from the holster. “Get down, everybody! DOWN!”
“Hickman, you see him?”
Off-duty Hickman eyed the balcony. “I see him. Let me try something.”
Hickman darted across the street.
He ran up the fire escape.
BANG! CLICK. CLICK.
Hickman jumped the gunman in mid-reload, almost choking him. “Drop it! DROP IT!”
The back-up wagon later came, taking the gunman away. Carson shook Hickman’s hand. “Great job, Hick. That was pretty rough.”
“No, I’m happy it happened. I HATE going to the dentist!”
