He wore a dark navy blue police uniform on his lean muscled body, with short sleeves and black patent shoes shone up bright.
There was a laughing devil tattoed on his right bicep, aslo a result of the same drunken party.
"Tell me," His sister mumbled around her finger, "What am I doing here?"
"You wouldn't stay home." He smiled.
"Without heroes we are all plain people and don't know how far we can go."
