So, a while ago I watched In Time and it was awesome. I wanted to write a fanfic, so here we go!
Léon sighed tiredly. Today, a new rookie would join the Timekeepers. And it was his job not to get her killed. Yes, they had put him up with a woman. A female rookie Timekeeper fresh from the Academy. He looked over her file again.
Name: Selina Walker
Age: twenty-five for three months
Hair Color: Black
Eye Color: Brown
Current residence: New Greenwich
Personality traits: Grew up as the daughter of Arnold Walker, famous business man and partner of Philip Weiss. Unlike expected, she shows no traits of being spoiled or entitled. During training, she showed great skill in both having a blind eye to people who stole time and the ability to defend herself. Her weak points are her recklessness, being too in over her head and not waiting for permission. All by all: One of the better rookies of this year. But even our best instructors fear she'll get herself into trouble very quickly.
He rested his head in the palm of his hand. Quite troublesome she was, much like him when he first started out to be a Timekeeper. And now, he was one of the better Timekeepers these days. He had been at this job for over fifteen years so that came as no surprise. But this girl…she was going to be a real pain in the ass.
His phone rang. He put it on speaker.
'Sir, Miss Walker is here'
He rubbed his eyes.
'Send her in' he spoke.
It didn't take long for her to show up. She practically threw open the door. He sat back. It wasn't what he had expected. She looked in no way how he had thought she'd look. Her long black hair was straight and was parted in the middle of her forehead. Her brown eyes stood out due to her heavy eye makeup, in which her ruby red lips contrasted with perfectly. She wore the usual attire rookies wore; a simple black t-shirt, leather jacket, skin-tight jeans and combat boots that reached to the knees. It looked good on her curvaceous body, no doubt about that. But he quickly got rid of that thought. He knew how his feelings had let him suffer in the past. How he had lost the woman he loved to the cruel time robbers in the Ghetto…
'Mr. Léon, I presume?' she asked.
He stood up. He found it polite to shake her hand. After all, he was going to be stuck with her for a while. She shook his hand, flashing a rather innocent smile while he knew she was far from innocent.
'I'm looking forward to working with you; I've heard all great things about you'
He had to chuckle at her compliment. She even took time to tell him. Most rookies wouldn't even bother.
'Likewise. But don't try to fool me, Miss Walker, I saw your report' he spoke while taking his seat again.
She flushed a bit at his comment. She took a seat herself.
'I guess I should explain why I'm here' she said.
He didn't move or blink at her.
'Enlighten me; why would a young, good-looking woman, the heir to the Walker Company on that too, work as a Timekeeper?' he asked.
She looked up, her brown eyes meeting his own blue ones.
'I guess I was tired of my life being handed to me' she spoke.
'Living day-by-day isn't that great, you know' he said.
'But it's better than living carelessly and knowing people die because the rich want to live forever' she answered.
Léon got up. She was wiser than he had thought.
'Well Miss Walker, let's get on with your first day of patrol then. And welcome to the Timekeepers' he spoke.
She stood up, smiling. 'Thank you, sir' she said.
Selina rested her head back against the headrest. They were driving around in Léon's cruiser. And so far, her first day had been good. No crime had been reported. Or had she seen anyone committing a crime.
She suddenly spotted two men running after a young woman. She looked at her superior.
'Léon!' she alarmed him.
He looked to her side. He took a sharp turn, making her collide with her window. She held onto her seat as he picked up the speed. He drove as fast as he could. But they weren't going to make it. They had already gotten to the woman.
Selina unbuckled her seatbelt. She threw open the door and jumped out. She knew she had twisted her ankle when she fell on the ground but she didn't care. She ran towards the criminals. She pulled out her gun.
'Release her' she snarled.
They dropped her. The woman got to her feet and ran over to hide behind her.
'Please, I'm going to time out' she begged.
Selina held out her arm to the woman while keeping her eye on the two men. When they attempted to run away, they bumped straight into Léon's cruiser. She lowered her gun. The woman grabbed her arm and turned it. She watched as time was transferred to her. But the woman wouldn't let her go.
Selina yanked her arm out of her grip. She rolled up her sleeve. She had a couple of months left. She watched with a raised eyebrow as the woman ran off. She only realized why when she turned around. Léon was standing in front of her, his expression serious.
'That woman could've committed the same crime as the men whom assaulted her' he told her.
He took her arm to roll her sleeve back down.
'She didn't. She was too terrified to do that' Selina defended herself.
'What if she hadn't?' Léon challenged.
He could kill her for her stupidity. But it wasn't really a surprise. She was a reckless kid. He turned to the two criminals by his cruiser. He clasped his hands behind his back.
'We'll leave each of them with two hours. The stolen time will be kept for other purposes' he said.
He heard a soft sigh behind him.
She walked past him. He watched her with a sharp eye as she took the time he had ordered her to take. He sighed himself. This woman was a handful. It wouldn't surprise him if she jumped out of his car again. She was such a reckless fool.
First chapter's a short one, I hope you enjoyed it. ^^ BTW, this takes place twenty years before the movie stars. Maybe I'll throw in a young Sylvia, I don't know XD
Anyways, please rate and review, it's very much appreciated.
