The dirty secret Chapter 1

The Magic SOB forum is for posts of story sequences that are frequently vignette-based. Put those here while actual battle reports can go in Reports From the Field.
You must talk like James T. Kirk in this forum at all times. Leonard Nimoy is fine too.

The dirty secret Chapter 1

Post by Cracjaw » Thu May 21, 2020 12:38 pm

Image

Outside the house of Herfin Lesler, a massive crowd is pushing to get past the police barricades.

Image

The Police inspector walks to the crime scene, he is trailed by his officers.

Inspector - "So, what do we have here?"

Officer 1 - "Early reports are saying it looks like a assassination, though we're not entirely sure, could have been a robbery gone bad."

Image

The Inspector leans over the dead Speaker of the Tertirary house

Inspector - "Looks like he was clobbered."

Image

Inspector - "What clues did you find? Fingerprints? Anything?"

Image

Officer 1 - "Well, we only found a half eaten banana, and a full apple in his outside fridge, no fingerprints, no DNA, no nothing."

Image

Inspector - "Alright, where are those detectives I asked for?"

Image

Two detectives, James Rodin and Duley Mound, walk forward, escorted by two cops.

Image

Inspector - "Are you two the detectives I asked for?"

James Rodin - "Yes sir, I do believe we are, unless, you wanted two other handsome guys."

Inspector - "Alright then, I need you two to give me an idea of what could have happened, anything that looks off, maybe any more blood splatters, anything will be helpful."

Image

Duley Mound - "But first, can I ask you a question?"

Inspector - "I do believe you just did."

Duley Mound - "Yeah, I can't work on any empty stomach, is anyone going to eat that apple?"

Inspector - "Uhhh, no."

Image

James Rodin leans over the body, trying to see what the others could not

Image

James Rodin - "Ah hah!! I found something!!

Inspector - "Already?"

James Rodin - "Nevermind, it's blank, it's been completely erased."

Image

James Rodin - "Wait!! What's that??"

Image

Inspector - "That looks like a computer."

Image

James Rodin - "Duley my friend, have it."

Duley Mound - "Dang it, that apple's so sticky, my fingers are sticking to the keys."

James Rodin - "That's disgusting."

Inspector - "What's on it?"

Duley Mound - "Nothing, it has been completely erased, whoever did this was after something, and it looks like they found it."

Image

Inspector - "And it looks like our poor speaker got in the way of that, okay, I want you two over at my place for a briefing in three hours."

Image

James Rodin - "You have problems."

PART TWO

Image

The two young detectives walk out of the crime scene

Duley Mound - "Hey James, wanna hit that Jomba Juice stand I saw on the way over?"

James Rodin - "Din't you just eat a dead man's apple and banana?"

Duley mound - "Yeah, James, a man needs his nutrition, and besides, not like he was gonna need it

Image

James stops as he notices something, he points to the top of the building

James Rodin - "How did the cops not see that?"

Image

Duley Mound - "Wow, our police force sucks."

Image

The detectives stop a nearby cop

James Rodin - "Hey buddy, is there anyway we can get a look of the tapes from that camera?"

Image

Cop - "Yeah, it's all digital and sent to our phones, here you go."

James Rodin - "Wow, we got us some high tek juju magumbo goin' on here."

Image

James scrolls through the footage until he finds something

Image

James Rodin - "Hey, this is dated 15 minutes before the senator died, I wonder if it's connected."

Duley Mound - "Umm, James, I definitely think they're related."

James Rodin - "I've heard it both ways."

MEANWHILE BACK AT THE POLICE STATION

Image

James Rodin - "Chief!! Chief!!"

Image

Inspector - "What do you want, what is this?"

James Rodin - "We found some footage from some cameras that we think may be connected to the murder."

Image

Inspector - "Okay, thanks, I'll check it out."

A couple of minutes later (More precisely, seven minutes and forty eight seconds)

Image

Inspector - "Okay, let's see what we can find."

The Inspector finds his database of all people that have ever entered PLA space (Handy, right?)

Image

He is instead greeted by an empty search, even after he plugged in the photos

Image

His phone begins ringing

Image

Inspector - "Yeah, who is this?"

Image

Alan - "This is Alan, the Prime Minister of the people."

Inspector - "Uh, hello sir, why do you call?"

Image

Alan, the Prime Minister of the People - "I'm calling because we just registered an unauthorized search on two PLA soldiers, do you know anything about this?"

Image

Inspector - "Uh, yes sir, we just recently got a break in the dead senator case, I was searching for a match of two perps we saw entering his house."

Image

Alan, the Prime Minister of the People (Both Male and Female) - "I want you to shut this investigation down right now."

Inspector - "Why sir? It is about a senator."

Alan, Prime Minister of the People (Both Male and Female) Hero to all - "It is a matter of national security, this will be shut down immediately, pay any of your consults or whatever you have to do, just shut it down."

Image

Inspector - "Umm, yessir."

Four days later...

Image

James Rodin - "I can't believe the chief just, fired us like that. We helped him with so much!!

Duley Mound - "Um, James, I don't think we were fired, they called off the investigation."

Image

James Rodin - "I just wonder why, I know I could've done some real damage."

Duley Mound - "Maybe that's, mm, the probwem."

James Rodin - "Duley, are you, are you...eating?"

Image

Duley Mound - "Mmm, yeah, and it's dewicious."

James Rodin - "Ugh."

Image

James Rodin - "Ssssllllluuuurrrrppppp....I'm bored."

Image

Duley Mound - "Mm, yeah, me too, this is good."

Image

James Rodin - "Watcha wanna do?"

Image

Duley Mound - "I'm doing it."

James Rodin - "You are unbelievable."

Both guys look up as they hear another minifigure approaching them

Image

James Rodin - "Who are you?

The dude - "I am the lead detective at the police department."

Duley Mound - "Then why are you here?"

Image

The Head Detective guy - "I need your help."

Part 4

Later, at midnight, at the docks...

Image

The Head Detective looks out over the massive expanse that is the Carpet Sea

James Rodin - "Why is it so dark out here?"

Duley Mound - "James, it's midnight."

Image

The two detectives walk over to the head Detective

James Rodin - "Hey, do you mind if I called you Bessie?"

The Head Detective does not respond

James Rodin - "That's cool."

Image

Duley Mound - "So, mmm, what are we here for?"

Image

Bessie - "I want to hire you for a job."

James Rodin - "Oooh, I like money, how much we talking? Hundreds? or thousands?

Duley Mound - "What my partner here is asking, is what does this job involve?"

Image

Besse - "You know that job that you were recently fired from? I want you to continue investigating."

Image

James Rodin - "You mean, you want us to go behind the police's backs, and keep investigating?"

Bessie - "Um, yes, that's what I said."

Image

Duley Mound - "You got yourself a couple of detectives."

James Rodin - "Where do we start?"

Bessie - "Come to the station tomorrow, and I can slip you some evidence I found in the guy's house."

Duley burps and throws away his midnight snack, a small grin appears on both men's faces.
