Hey guys! This is my new story. Just a trigger warning, there are mentions of panic attacks, mental health problems, possibly self harm, suicide, etc. If you are triggered by that stuff, please don't read my story. I don't want you to be triggered... Please keep yourself safe. And if you ever need to talk to someone, text GO to 741-741 to be connected to a crisis text line. If you don't have a mobile phone, there are plenty of numbers for suicide hotlines. I'm pretty sure it's against the rules to put numbers up, so I'd advise you to google it. Stay safe, friends.
"Nick. Judy. I've called you into my office I'm assigning you to a special case. I think you two are the best for this particular one." Chief Bogo said, eyeing them both.
"Yes Chief! What's the case?" Judy said excitedly.
Nick, the less enthusiastic of the two simply smirked slightly and waited for the case. Bogo reached into his desk and pulled out a file.
"There's a zebra who has been robbing stores all around the area. They seem to be mostly toy based stores. Can't imagine what he's want so many toys for. Anyways, I'm assigning you two to find him and bring him down."
Judy took the file.
"We're on the case chief!"
The two hopped up from their chairs and stared to walk out of the door.
"Oh, and one more thing" Bogo called from behind them.
They turned around and he continued.
"The suspect's name is Conner Greyson."
Nick's ears perked up. That name sounded so familiar to him, but he couldn't place it.
"He's one of the most manipulative ones out there. He'll try to trick you into letting him go, or he'll catch you off guard, but don't let him win. I know you two can do this."
Judy smiled "Thanks chief! We'll bring him to justice!"
"Uh... Yeah.. We- we'll get him." Nick mumbled.
They walked out of Bogo's office and into Judy's. They sat down at her desk, opened the file, and got to work.
Judy spoke up.
"Alright. It looks like he's robbed Zeke's Toy store, Action Figures R us, Sammy's Stuffed Animals, Jake's Junction For Toy Cars, and Sara's super toys. Hmm... There must be a pattern. Nick, get the map of the city I have out of my desk."
Nick pulled out the map and they studied it.
"Hmm... I can't seem to- wait.. Nick look! All these toy stores are being robbed in the direction of the Tundra district. So that means-"
"The next robbery will probably be at
Nick studied the map a little more.
"Pam's toy planes!"
"Alright! Looks like we'll be doing a steak out." Judy said, pounding her hand on her desk.
Nick nodded "Sounds good, carrots."
(6 hours later)
It was midnight and Nick and Judy had been hanging out near the toy store for about 2 hours parked in an alleyway.
Judy was watching for the zebra like a hawk, but Nick was deep in thought. He was trying to remember where he had heard that name. Connor Greyson... Connor Greyson... Where had he heard it? It sounded so familiar. Suddenly, he felt Judy shaking his shoulder roughly.
"Ah- What?" He whispered harshly
"There he is" Judy replied quietly, staring out of the window.
Nick looked out and sure enough, the masked zebra was sneaking to the toy store, completely oblivious to the cop car. They let him walk a few feet before silently nodding at each other and getting out of the car, teasers in hand. Judy got out her wallow talkie and silently talked into it.
"This is officer Hopps. Requesting backup at Pam's toy planes."
They silently followed behind him until he got to the door of the store. Then the action started.
"STOP IN THE NAME OF THE LAW" Judy yelled, holding out her taser. "PUT YOUR HOOVES UP!"
The zebra swiftly turned around and put his hooves up, slowly backing away.
"STAY WHERE YOU ARE!" Nick shouted, holding out his taser too.
The zebra studied Nick for a moment before chuckling slightly.
"I don't freakin believe it. Nicholas Wilde."
Nick's eyes widened in surprise and a little bit of fear, but he wasn't about to show it. He put on his best angry face and continued to hold out the taser.
"Who are you? How did you know my my name?!"
The zebra took off his mask and Nick almost dropped his taser in shock. Conner Greyson... It all came flooding back. The zebra from the scouts troop. The one that helped with the muzzle...
"Y-you..." Nick stuttered out.
"Nick? What's wrong?" Judy asked, clearly concerned.
"I can't believe YOU of all people became a cop. After all. You're just a FOX."
Nick's ears drooped and he started to breathe heavier, but he stood his ground.
"You know what you need, little Nicky? A muzzle."
Connor pulled a muzzle out from behind him and launched himself at Nick.
Nick dropped his taser in shock and was knocked to the ground by the zebra. He could hear Judy yelling.
He thrashed around and started yell, but it was no use. The zebra attached the muzzle and the flashbacks came. The muzzle. The incident that caused him so much pain.
Nick couldn't breathe. He was stuck. He was getting dizzy and all around him there was yelling and shouting. He felt the weight of the zebra suddenly get lifted off of him, but he was so riled up and panicked, he couldn't breathe or see. He felt two small hands on his shoulders and a voice calling his name. He thrashed around trying to get away and screamed bloody murder.
"Nick!" The voice yelled
"No! Leave me alone! Leave me alone!" Nick screamed, tears streaming down his face as he thrashed around even more.
Everything started to spin and Nick was getting more dizzy. The last thing he remembered was multiple voices yelling before everything went black.
