Ok, this was previously an Adam-12 story. However, due to conflict with the Adam-12 fandom on various issues, I removed the story. It was a very good story and I love Adam-12. So, I've decided to make Erik, a police officer. But I will be using a few things from Adam-12, like Jim, but as we all know, I don't own anything here. Fan Fiction's moto is "Unleash your imagination" and I shall do so. The story is all ready typed up, it's simply awaiting alterations to make it into a modern Phantom story.
Now, for those who haven't seen Adam-12, it's a TV. Series about various things that policemen have to endure on the force.
I own NOTHING here!
"Who'd want to see me?" Jim Reed said, his blue eyes showing confusion. "And a female too."
"A female who refuses to identify herself too." Erik Ormanni said dryly as he rubbed the thin material that covered up his deformity. "Must be an old flame."
Jim shook his head, "I never went out with a lot of girls."
Erik shook his head. "You don't know what you're missing.'"
"Neither do you." Jim shot back. "Being married has its…assets."
Erik snorted as Alexander Wayne walked by with a full mouth. He frowned, "Eating all ready?"
Alexander held up a slice of something, "let's see you resist this. You don't know what you're missing."
"That's probably got 4,000 calories which will take me forever to loose. No thanks!" Erik glanced at Jim with a sideways look. Jim was shaking his head in disapproval. "So? Sugar's not good for you."
They walked down to the office to hear some chatter coming from the visitor's center. A new female laugh added to the mix. They rounded the corner to see a girl chatting with some fellow officers.
"I don't believe it." Jim said. "Erika?"
The brunette looked up, jumped up, and ran towards Jim, her arms outstretched. Jim laughed as he spun the girl around. Erik frowned at his partner and glanced around to see the other officers were studying the girl as well. Probably wonder, who she was, how they could meet her and what was her number.
Erika laughed and smiled, "oh, it's good to see you. It's been a long time."
"I know!" he said. "Why didn't you tell me you were coming?"
She laughed, "Because I wanted to surprise my little brother!" That got everyone's attention and made Jim turn red in embarrassment. She laughed. "And deliver a Valentine's day present for all the men here."
Jim shook his head; "Do you still do that?"
She nodded, "You know me! Several of them took back five loaves to the back room."
"Don't tell me!" Jim said. "Let me guess. Your famous pumpkin cranberry bread. Right?"
"Right." She said stretching up and hugging him. "I've got to run, I'll be late for work."
"Where are you working?"
"Uhh, Duke's Longhorn Café on 5th street and Pine. Know it?"
"Sure, we eat there all the time."
"That's good to know." She glanced at her watch. "I've got to run. I'll see you later. Gotta go."
Erik stood there as Jim grinned at his retreating sister. "Reed?" Jim turned around and nodded. "Roll call in five minutes."
"Oh!" he smiled and followed him. "Sorry, I haven't seen Erika in almost two years."
"She was a secretary in New York for a while and taking dancing lessons."
"She was very clumsy. Thought the dancing would be a good way to help her become more graceful."
"You called your own sister clumsy?"
"Well…she had a limp, surgery corrected it, then, she had to adjust to walking properly."
Erik groaned and walked back towards the locker room. "Hey!" they turned to see Alexander with another slice of bread. "Who was she Reed?"
"Relax." Erik said. "His older sister…who we didn't know existed."
"Oh, I-uh, it never really came up."
"The thing that astounds me is," Erik said. "How could a sister come out so cute with a brother like that?" he snitched a corner of the bread from Alexander who made a face. He popped it in his mouth and his eyes widened. "Or even cook like this? She said she made it?"
Jim nodded, "She's been doing this since I was twelve."
"And she dances?"
Jim nodded, "She's a good housekeeper, is a little bit of an auto mechanic and she can play the piano."
"And she's still single?" Jim nodded. "Now I know the world's gone off its nut if there's a girl like her are still running around unmarried." At Jim's look, Erik added hastily. "Not that I'm interested mind you. But, if she's a few years older than you that makes her…how old?"
"Not saying." Jim said. "She is my sister and if I tell her age, she'll kill me."
"So how come she's not married?"
"My sister is very fussy. You couldn't even make the grade with her!"
Erik laughed. "Good. Come on, we've got a day ahead of us."
Erika whistled brightly as she walked down the street to try and hail a taxi.
So, that's what Erik Ormanni looked like.
Jim had had told her a lot about him in his letters. He was handsome and definitely her type. He was certainly drop dead handsome in his pristine, navy-blue policeman's uniform. However, he had this dark look that made her uneasy, almost as he if could see through her.
She was happy to see Jim, it had been a long time. she was planning on staying for as long as she could. But she hadn't left the east for no reason. She had left the trouble there, and she could only hope that the clouds couldn't ready her in sunny California. However, with her brother on the police force. What could possibly happen to her?
Ok, here it is.
