Straight Out Of The Black Lagoon.
Scott & Bailey
It was Monday morning and Kevin was sitting at his desk re-writing his incident report from Friday's robbery because according to his Boss DCI Murray he had the handwriting of a bloody 6 year old. He looked up when he heard the doors opening and saw Rachel and Janet entering.
"Morning' Scotty, Rach. Good weekend". He asked.
"Yeah. Birthday bash for our Alison. Not bad actually. Janet got a bit pissed though". She replied. Laughing.
"Excuse me lady. I wasn't the only one. How about you Kevin. Weekend alright". Janet asked.
"Yeah, was with Mitch and Andy at the pub. You'll never guess who bloody turned up aswell".
"Well go on then. Don't keep us in suspense. Who". Rachel asked. Impatiently.
"Only Godzilla and the bitch from the black lagoon".
"No way. I'll bet that spoiled your evening then". Rachel smirked.
"Would you listen to yourselves". Janet replied. Annoyed.
"What are you gettin' so pissy about". Rachel asked.
"Your behaving like bloody teenagers Rachel. Believe it or not Gill is intitled to a social life as is DCI Dodson. The problem you both have is that you can't take it when they give you a telling off".
"Come of it Janet".
"No Rachel. You've screwed up alot in the last year and yeah Gill was tough on you. She has to be. That's her job but she stood by you. Believed in you when DCI Dodson questioned you about Nick Savage and still you bitch about her behind her back".
"Yeah Rachel". Kevin smirked.
"Well I don't know what your smirking about. Your no better than she is. The way you go on about DCI Dodson". Janet snapped.
"That bitch tried to get me kicked of M.I.T".
"Yeah because you weren't taking the job seriously. You said yourself when Gill asked you why you joined the Police that it was a good way to meet women".
"Well yeah, but".
"But nothing Kevin. The only reason they get on at you both so much is because they just want to see you better yourselves. So grow up".
"She's still a bitch". Kevin replied.
"You know what Kevin. Men tend to put certain women down because their secretly attracted to them". Janet said.
"Like that's ever gonna happen". Kevin replied. Sarcastically.
Kevin went back to what he was doing at his desk in a far less happier mood than when he'd arrived. Janet and Rachel gave one another one of their apologetic smiles and started their day.
Later on that afternoon. DCI Gill Murray was in her office with Kevin going over his handwriting skills when there was a knock at the door.
"Come in". She commanded.
Kevin's face dropped when he saw who had entered.
"Hi Gill. You got a minute".
"Hiya slap. What brings you down this way". Gill asked.
"I need a favour. Hello DC Lumb". Julie smiled.
"Ma'am". Kevin grimaced.
"Kevin. Get back to work and remember what I said about that bloody handwriting. Close the door behind you".
"Yes Boss". He replied. Leaving the room.
"So. How's Kevin". Julie asked.
"Need you ask. What do you want anyway you fat arsed bitch". Gill replied. Smiling.
"Bloody charming that is. How did we end up friends again".
"We're too much alike. That's why we were always getting into trouble at the Police Academy. I'm suprised they let us graduate at all. Serioulsly though. What do you need". Gill replied. Laughing.
"I need to borrow on of your team".
"One of my team. Why".
"There's a massive murder inquiry on at one of the other syndicates and they've borrowed most of my team. The remainig few that are left are carrying on with our investigation. I need to interview a potential suspect and I need someone with me. The guys I have need to stay in the office trawling through records. Hence why I need to borrow one of yours".
"Come on Gill. surely you can spare one body. You wouldn't want me to go on my own without any back-up. Would you".
"You wouldn't dare lady. I'd bloody kill you myself if you did".
Gill got up from behind her desk and looked out her window into the Incident Room. Scanning the faces of her team. Her eyes landed on the one member who wasn't knee deep in an investigation at the minute.
"Okay slap. You need someone a.s.a.p. You can have DC Lumb".
The look on Julie's face made Gill wish that she'd had her camera handy.
"Kevin. You are joking".
"What. You said you needed someone".
"Well I know but I meant someone like DC Bailey or DC Scott. Not dopey Kevin".
"Well you can't have them. They have a massive workload on at the minute and I can't spare them. It's Kevin or no-one. Sorry slap".
"I guess I could put up with him for a short time".
"Maybe if you spent some quality time together you'd find out that you aren't as bad as the other thinks".
"What that I'm not the bitch from the black lagoon. I know that's what he calls me". Julie questioned.
"What about me. I'm bloody Godzilla". Gill replied. Laughing.
"Ouch". Julie smirked.
"You wait here. I'll go give him the good news".
Kevin was making a coffee for Rachel when Gill walked up behind him.
"Kevin. I have a job for you. Oooh coffee. Lovely. I need this". She said. Taking the hot mug from his hand.
"Um, actually Boss that was for, never mind. What's the job".
"You'll be teaming up with DCI Dodson for the next few days".
Gill couldn't help but laugh inside when she noticed the smile on his face suddenly disappear to be be replaced by fear.
"You alright Kevin".
"Boss. She hates me".
"She doesn't hate you Kevin. DCI's do not hate their team. We just get exasperated by you sometimes when you don't pay attention in briefings. That sort of thing".
"Why me. I can bet she didn't ask for me personally".
"As it happens no she didn't. Your the only one who doesn't have a big workload at the moment so we can spare you. It's only for a few days. It won't kill you".
"It could do". He smirked.
"Suck it up Kevin. Go grab what you need. you can meet her in the car park". She said. Walking away.
He glared over at Janet and Rachel who had heard the whole conversation and were now laughing at him.
"Hey Kev. What happened to my coffee". Rachel asked. Jokingly.
"Stuff your coffee Rach. I've got bigger problems to deal with".
He grabbed his jacket and sulked as he made his way downstairs. This is gonna be hell he thought to himself.
