Here you go again........

'Could you prove it?'
'How do you mean?'
'As a copper, could you prove it?'
'I'm not a Copper.'
'Alright then, as a 'Special', could you prove it?'

As your call sign was requested on the radio, you knew it wasn't going to be good news, you were due to go home in twenty minutes, your girlfriend would be waiting for you to pick her up in an hour, and the last showing at the cinema was in an hour and a half. As you heard the message, you won't lie, all you wanted to do was go Off Duty. But about a minute after the request, you and your collegue were traveling to the scene, you knew where you were going.

You only have to commit a total of 200 hours a year to duties, just five percent of what Regular Officers have to do. With this statistic in mind, you remembered that you had been to this address before, twice, once near Christmas, and once a few months later, at that time, you predicted the colour of blue would most likely light the same street again.

Upon arriving at the house, crying could be heard from inside, clearly that of a young child, you stepped out of the car and followed John to the house. You had no idea what would be on the other side, only that you wouldn't be talking about it in the car on the way to the cinema.

As he knocked, you couldn't help but think, here you go again.........

'Nothing is written in stone, and even if it was, stones can be broken.'
