Humphrey was taking his lunch break. He went and pick up his Marafiki and went to “Grubb in the box.”
“Can I take your order please?” the attendant asked.
“I’ll have a number 9,” Humphrey said.
“I’ll also have a number 9,” Shakey said.
“I’ll have a number 6 with extra dip,” Salty said.
“I’ll have two number 9’s, a number 9 large, a number 6 with extra dip, two number 45’s, one with cheese, and a large soda,” alisema Mooch.
“Fat guy,” Shakey said.
“You’re paying,” Humphrey said.
Humphrey pulled up to the sekunde window, “You know, there’s a huge criminal in the pack right now. He has stabbed a few people,” Humphrey gave Mooch a sharp look, “He even robbed a store.”
“I just want my food,” Mooch said.
“By the way, I also have some guns in the back. The WCA give each officer two Tech-9’s, an M-16, and Spaz-12.”
They got their chakula and Humphrey saw a weird green car come. He noticed a familiar face in the car. It was the criminal! Humphrey threw the cash into the window and sped off.
“Guys, get the guns!”
“Why in the hurry?” Shakey asked.
“The criminal! He’s in that red Ford!”
“Ahh, crap! I spilled ketchup on the seat!” Mooch complained.
Humphrey used his PA radio, “Pull over au we shoot!”
A few police cars came in right behind Humphrey and the criminal. The officers thought it was a civilian trying to kill a civilian.
“Salty, shoot his tires!”
Salty missed but the cops thought they were teaming up to kill an innocent civilian. A police car spun Humphrey out of control and they all surrounded the Armada with loaded M-16’s. The cops saw it was Humphrey and made a mistake.
“I almost caught a suspect wewe nubs!”
“Crap! wewe need to be in a registered cruiser inayofuata time!”
“I was on lunch break with my friends. That’s why I have civilians in my vehicle.”
Shaun, the officer that spun Humphrey out, radioed the commander of the police station, “Officer Shaun to Commander.”
“This is Commander John.”
“Commander, I just spun out another officer not knowing he was law enforcement. He nearly caught our number one suspect! I don’t know what to do!”
“Return to base now!”
Humphrey got back in his car with disbelief.
“You made me spill my soda!” Mooch said.
“Can’t wewe forget about that for one second!?” Salty yelled.
“Salty, it’s good, wewe don’t need to harass him.”
“I was just trying to help.”
Humphrey drove to drop off his friends, then picked up Johnny, “Hey, Johnny, wanna go see my headquarters?”
He drove to the WCA headquarters and showed Johnny around. Johnny saw Mbwa mwitu loups with all sorts of ranks.
“What rank are you, dad?”
“I’m a Senior Warrant Officer.”
“Is that high?”
“It’s on the high side.”
Humphrey’s squad leader came up, “Officer Humphrey in my office!”
“What rank is he?”
“That is my leader. He is a Field Marshal!”
“Is that high?”
“It’s the highest possible rank. The only one above him is Winston. wewe can pretty much just roam around here, but don‘t go into the radar rooms, private lounges, au offices. wewe can hang it the break rooms though.”
Humphrey came into the office. The Field Marshal sat down at his dawati in front of Humphrey.
“I want to congratulate wewe on your performance of nearly catching the criminal. I need wewe to go on a mission. wewe have to go into the United States to California, and help them with a task. There is a base there that you’ll be staying at.”
“What is this task? I like to know ahead of time what they are.”
“Officer, I cannot tell wewe that. wewe have to find out when wewe get there.”
“Can I bring some Marafiki au family?”
“That is a negative. A mbwa mwitu when he is sent out for a mission can’t bring non-military forces.”
Humphrey looked disappointed, “My son would upendo it.”
“Your son is 18.”
“So? He still acts like he’s 12 sometimes.”
“Still, officer, wewe can’t bring anyone.”
“Alright, I won’t. When do I leave?”
“There will be four other Mbwa mwitu loups going with you. wewe five will meet here Thursday at 8:00 pm.”
“Ok, I will be here.”
Humphrey left the office and came to Johnny, “Well, I’m leaving on Thursday to go to California.”
“How come wewe pronounce ‘Idaho’ wrong but not any other American state?”
“It’s Idaho, officer!” a Sergeant said.
“Sergeants don’t yell at Warrant Officers.”
“I wasn’t yelling.”
“He right, dad.”
“Ida-who, I can’t say it!”
Humphrey went on patrol and took Johnny. On his patrol, he told his Marafiki and family where he was going and what was happening. His shift eventually ended.
“Hey, Johnny, if wewe ever get attacked at home, make sure wewe defend your mother, alright?”
“You got it, dad.”
Humphrey and Johnny came home. Kate was the only one Humphrey hasn’t told about where he was going.
“Hey, Kate, I gotta talk to you.”
“I’m going to America on a mission, I need to tell wewe because wewe can’t come.”
“How long will wewe be gone?”
“I’m not sure.”
Kate leaned on Humphrey, “I’ll call wewe ever night.”
