The Particular Conundrum of Constable X

Constable X was an enigma to Constables Murphy and McDonough.

The Captain said Constable X worked solo because he’d lost partners before.

Something didn’t feel right about that, so they did a bit of prying.

Turned out he slept in his office all day.

And donned a mask at night.

This story is based on a title suggested by @MisterFiendZero.


“Do you have any idea how fast you were driving back there?”

“I have a rough idea…”

“Seventy-five miles an hour.”

“Really? Wow, I’m so sorry…”

“Now, either I can give you a five-hundred-dollar ticket for speeding, or you can tell me what the heck you’ve done to that tricycle.”
