Grim looked over the weapon again, surprised to hear that the police on this planet were issued something so harmless. Well, compared to what they had back home anyway. “I imagine that’s quite handy.” But then it dawned upon him, had she said officer? “Oh! Oh you’re with the police, no wonder you showed up when I was dealing with that thief.” The fongoid couldn’t help but to feel so stupid. How could he not have realized it earlier?
“Very handy. Even if some thieves always seems to evade my weapon.” The one thief she was talking about, a certain ringtail. His next comment took her by surprise. Yes, she was a cop but showing up here had actually been a coincidence. “Well, I was actually going to another incident not far from here. And sort of just came upon you. Since the thief was trying to steal from you, I can do my best to track him or her down and arrest him. Was the suspect male or female? It’s my job to put criminals behind bars.”
