*I hit the rumbler. The car ahead of me freaks out as I approach quickly. He's not pulling to the right. I start slowing down, and proceed to pass him on the right side...bad form...I know....but this jackass isn't pulling over and I'm not going to wait behind him. As I start to proceed to pass him, he suddenly decides to pull over to the right side. We nearly collide. Luckily I swerve far enoguh right to avoid the collision*
'Jackass', I say to myself flustered. I safely pass him and make the next right turn. As we near the address I shut down my lights and siren a block away. As I round the corner onto September St. I see the EMS vehicles in front of a house.
"203 show me on scene, 13 September." I say as I pull along side the EMS vehicles. I double park.
*I get out of the car and pull my sidearm out*
I see the front door slightly ajar, but I see nothing else.
*I meet up with Caldwell, my sidearm drawn and up. We proceed up to the house along the side of it, out of line of sight of the front door. He takes the lead, I stay right on his ass my inside shoulder aligned with his outside shoulder.*
'I got right, you got left, call it if I see it.' I say.
*heart racing, my vision is unusually clear. Every detail pops out at me. Every motion, every sound, I'm hyperaware*
We proceed up to the door from the side, making sure to keep out of direct line of site of the front door. As we grow nearer, I hear a muffled commotion.
