Turnabout of Crossroads:
"It's nice to see you again."
"Well, don't just keep standin' there! Hop in!"
Slam! Click! Vr-vr-vr-VROOOM!
"So, it's been…"
"Two years. Yeah."
"Anything I missed out on, Mick?"
"Yep. I was offered this new job. I accepted, of course."
"I see. So, where did you say we were headed?"
"I'll show you. Hold yer horses! Just meetin' an old friend."
"All right then."
"Well, there he is!"
"Do I know him?"
"No. Hang on a sec."
"So, yer showed up, eh?"
"Erm… yes. Um… about earlier today…"
"Give it a rest, bud! You blew it! And you deserve some discipline!"
"Please! You have to give me another chance!"
"You already used up all yer chances!"
"Chances? What's going on?"
"Now, it's time that yer are not a problem anymore!"
"Time to meet yer end!"
"There! All done!"
"NOOOOOOO! Give it here! Hurgh!"
TAP TAP TAP tap tap tap…
"…He's gone! Now, time to fix this mess an' get outta here."
(June 7, 8:00 a.m., Wright and Co. Law Offices)
I opened the door to my office. The lights were off, so I turned them on. As usual, Maya was lying on the office sofa with several empty packages of burgers in front of her. Ignoring her, knowing she was okay, I sat down behind my desk where I met the usual mess of papers. I have to clean this soon, I thought while organizing the papers from my briefcase.
Suddenly, the Steel Samurai theme song played from my pocket on the loud setting. Maya woke with a start and exclaimed, "TAKE THAT EVIL MAGISTRATE… huh? Oh! Hey, Nick!"
I signaled her to quiet down as the clicked the answer button and put the phone up to my ear.
"Um… hello?" I asked.
"…Phoenix Wright, is it?" came a calm voice from the other end.
"Yes, this is Wright. Is there a problem?"
"… I need your help, Mr. Wright. I am being accused for a crime and I need an attorney."
"What crime was it?" I asked, expecting the usual.
"…Murder." Came the answer. Typical I thought to myself.
"My name is Arnold Backer and I am at the Detention Center in downtown," he continued, "Can you help me?"
I paused for a second and answered, "All right, Mr. Backer. I'll come down and look at your situation."
"I can't thank you enough, Mr. Wright!" BEEP! He hung up the phone. I looked at it for a second and then sighed.
"Who was that?" asked Maya, who was now standing in front of me.
"Another person accused of murder," I answered, " He is at the Detention Center now."
" Well, what are we waiting for, Nick? Let's go!"
"Maya, I just got here! Can't we wait an hour or so? I have a lot of work to get done!"
"No, Nick. 'Those in most trouble must be counted first'! Says Auntie Morgan!"
(Editor's Note: Morgan Fey does NOT say this in Justice For All. I just made it up… or maybe not.)
I rolled my eyes. Says a traitor. "All right then, Maya. I'll come. But you are paying for the taxi this time. Hopefully, the same one that dropped me off didn't go too far!"
Well, that's the intro of this long episode! Meeting the client and the investigation is in the next chapter. Right now I am working on it and it may take a little while.
