"Detective Sinclair," Joe said, "I'm giving this assignment to you. I know you will treat it as a sacred trust."

Josie, understanding how important Joe considered this particular assignment, smiled and said, "You can count on me, Joe."

"A sacred trust? Oh, come on. It's just taking a bunch of schoolkids across the street," scoffed Detective Martin Saunders.

"That's the wrong attitude," Joe reprimanded. "To me, getting kids across the street safely is a sacred trust."

"Aren't you exaggerating the importance of this assignment?" another officer asked.

"Not at all," Joe said. "Don't forget, one of those kids is mine."
