"let's drop off our squad cars at the h.q. and head home for the day," pacman suggested. "not like there's anything we can do now."

dig-dug looked at his partner. "yeah, at least until we get another call." though they had stoic faces, they were both aggravated.

four victims, three days, no progress. it's as if they were shadow-boxing. the icons entered their assigned cars and drove in silence.

as they parked their cars, they headed in for a brief moment to say they were heading home, and then headed home in dig-dug's car.

pacman told dig-dug to take a turn, when dig-dug spoke up. "you aren't really thinking of going back to your apartment, are you?"

pacman raised an eyebrow. "yeah, it is where i live, after all." "but there's no power still, right?" "i can manage." he looked away.

when he noticed dig-dug didn't take the turn, he asked, "what are you doing, dig-dug? that was the turn!" dig-dug was stern.

"i can't in good conscience let my best friend stay in a crummy, worn down apartment. uh, no offense intended. so you're staying with me."

@namcospeedway

pacman's eyes went wide. "you can't just decide something like that!" "looks like i just did." "but where will i sleep?" "guest room."

@namcospeedway

pacman was at a loss. he stammered and stuttered but couldn't find any words. finally, he agreed. "fine. crummy, huh..."

when they arrived home, valkyrie barely even greeted pacman before telling him where his room was. pacman was visibly annoyed.

"how long have you two been planning on this?" dig-dug smiled sheepishly. "well, uh... since yesterday." pacman groaned.

@namcospeedway

dig-dug seemed a little offended. "you can't honestly tell me you'd rather sleep in your own apartment than my house." pacman was silent.

@namcospeedway

angrily, he replied, "and you can't honestly think i wouldn't be upset that you two are treating me like some helpless moron!"

@namcospeedway

dig-dug snapped, "hey i'm trying to do something nice for you! with the way the weather's been you'd catch cold in that damp apartment!"

@namcospeedway

pacman snapped back, "that's none of your business!" "you're my partner! if you're in poor health how are we supposed to work?"

suddenly, their pagers went off. they grabbed for them immediately. without words, they immediately ran back out the door.

"we weren't even home for ten minutes," pacman complained. dig-dug said, "this is a bit more important. wait, you referred to it as home?"

09/06/2012 23:30:21 WIB
@namcospeedway

pacman quickly replied, "force of habit! just drive." dig-dug drove in silence, and they were at the crime scene within 30 minutes.

@namcospeedway

this time, there were two victims, and it was every bit as unpleasant and similar to the others. the same burn and the same terrified look.

09/06/2012 23:32:55 WIB
@namcospeedway

except, one of the victims was one of the witnesses questioned just a short time ago. "no... bravoman..." pacman looked away.

09/06/2012 23:34:14 WIB
@namcospeedway

"and a mewkie, too. looks like he was stealing a bag." dig-dug added. "not even bravoman could stop the killer. and he was such a help."

09/06/2012 23:35:21 WIB
@namcospeedway

pacman asked, "you didn't mind him?" dig-dug replied, "with how understaffed the police force is, of course not. this is a shame."

09/06/2012 23:36:28 WIB
@namcospeedway

dig-dug looked around the area. it was a dark alley, so he didn't expect to see any cameras. "no cameras. pooka, were there witnesses?"

09/06/2012 23:38:00 WIB
@namcospeedway

the pooka shook his head. "i don't suppose there are any new clues." pacman was already investigating bravoman's body. "we'll see."
