The last few of the groceries had been gotten out of the car. Amanda locked up the garage and went into the house to put the groceries away.

"What's in that box?" Amanda asked, playing Tetris with the freezer to get the newly purchased food inside.

"It's a carrot cake," Kiersey answered as she opened a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos and dug inside. "Our new neighbor brought it over as a token of brotherly love." Kiersey was trying to be funny.

Being nosey, Amanda went to the cake to take a look. She would cut herself a slice later. She noticed that Joe left his phone on the counter. Just as she did, the screen came to live and it vibrated rhythmically as it emitted some Alternative Rock melody as the ringtone. The caller ID read: "Violetta". Amanda cocked an eyebrow. Wanting to know who this "Violetta" was, she snatched up the phone and answered the call.

"Who is this?" Amanda said, rather rudely.

"Oh, um..." The woman named Violetta on the other end was caught off guard. Either because of the way Amanda answered the phone or because she was expecting to speak to her work partner.. "I'm sorry. You must be Amanda..."

"--And how do you know my name?" Amanda retorted, shifting her weight to one leg and putting her hand upon her hip.

"Joe speaks very highly of you," Violetta said, trying to get on her good side. She figured that she was a little suspicious, seeing as some woman called her husband's phone. "I'm Joe's work partner, Officer Violetta Ortiz. I was just trying to reach him pertaining an urgent matter. Is he in?"

"Oh..." Amanda felt a little stupid. "Sorry. Strange number calling up my husband, you know how it is."

"I totally understand." Violette chuckled. Laughs were a little hard to come by, given the current circumstances.

Amanda was going to find Joe, but she saw him coming down stairs. "Joe, your partner's on the phone," she said, handing it to him as he entered the family room.

It was his day off. What could be the problem?

Taking the phone, he put it to his ear and spoke. "Talk to me."

"Sorry to call you in on your day off, but we have a bit of a situation."

"Oh?"

"Its not too far from where you live. At the crossing of Bayberry Drive and Highland Avenue..." Violette explained the situation in further detail. Joe didn't know what to make of it.

"...Shit." He sighed. "Alright. I'll be there within fifteen minutes." With that, he ended the call.

"What's going on?" Amanda asked.

"Work." That was his simple one-word answer as he went upstairs to get dressed.
