Officers:F. Testarossa and N. Takamachi
It was a nice day in Uminari City. The sun was shining, birds were chirping and even the sludge in the bay sparkled a nice green in the sunlight. And in the midst of all this niceness, a sudden flurry of gunshots sang into the air.
"You know what people call me?" The brunette cocked her gun, smirking down at the huddled thug on the warehouse floor. "The White Devil, bitch!"
With a sigh, a slim blonde rounded a corner, hauling the thug's partner by the back of the neck, and tossed him into the patrol car before going over to the brunette. Without any hesitation, she plucked the gun from the girl's grasp. "Hey!" she yelped.
"Bad Nanoha. What did I tell you about terrorizing the thugs when they've only robbed banks?"
"... Don't kill them?"
The blonde facepalmed.
"I was just having some fun, Fate-chan!" Nanoha whined.
Fate raised an eyebrow and turned to look down at Nanoha's victim. The bald thug cringed, shuffling closer to Fate and cowered at her feet.
"MP5-Ns," Fate noted, indicating the submachine gun she had confiscated from the other thug. Nanoha's eyes lit up and she just about draped herself over Fate's arm, panting eagerly but Fate held it out of reach. "They were specifically designed for U.S. Navy use—sound suppressors, retractable stocks…highly illegal and hard to get. Who paid for these?"
The questioning made the thug puff out his chest and sneer with renewed confidence, "I don't know what shit you're—"
Fate silently turned and handed the MP5-N to Nanoha, who cackled with delight, bringing the gun up to her shoulder and expertly rotating the selector lever until the safety was off—then looked down at the thug with a wide smile.
The thug scuttled behind Fate again, white with terror. "AHH!! Come on, you know who, I bet you cops already have the kingpin's name!"
Fate sighed. "Well, see, this works one of two ways. Either you come along quietly, which is option A, or you put up a fight and Nanoha here gets to have some fun, which is option B."
Nanoha grinned. "Choose option B."
Nanoha tapped the trigger guard of her gun. "Is that a request?"
"That's his name!" The thug trembled. "Please don't kill me!"
Fate cuffed him and tossed him into the backseat of their patrol car beside his partner and slammed the door shut. Leaning against the car, she scowled. "That bastard again."
Flicking the selector lever to safety again, Nanoha collapsed the stock and stowed the gun in the trunk. "Let it go, Fate-chan. You know that street cops like us won't be the ones to bring Jail down." She opened the passenger side door and got in.
Fate's dark expression didn't change, but she got into the car and tapped the steering wheel. "I don't care. I hate him."
Lacing her fingers behind her head, Nanoha said patiently, "Yes, I know."
Fate sighed and started the car. Smiling slightly, Fate remarked, "You know, I'm surprised that you didn't let loose with a few shots back there."
"Oh, come on. This isn't like you and you know it."
"... You seemed annoyed," Nanoha said at last. "I won't deny I'm trigger-happy, but I know when to lower my gun."
"Huh," Fate grunted, fiddling with the police radio when static interrupted them.
"Besides," Nanoha grinned, all her previous seriousness gone, "That gun was evidence, and there's extra paperwork in it for me if I messed with your evidence again."
The blonde laughed, remembering that particular threat.
"Hey," Nanoha beamed as she checked the record of calls sent through dispatch while they had been occupied, "there's another robbery happening on 32nd and Yale…" Her voice trailed off suggestively.
"No," Fate shot down. "We have to drop off and process our two robbers in the back."
"Fate-chan," pouted Nanoha, crossing her arms. "You're a boring stick-in-the-mud!"
"Yeah," Fate said, unoffended. "But you agreed to this partnership too—so suck it up and start calling in to the station."
