VERY SHORT STORY: Police, or...!

Police, or...!
By: Aadel M Al-Mahdy

Enjoying sipping his morning coffee one day while the bulk of his body sank into the comfort of his leather chair and his legs rested on the surface of his desk; one on top of the other and both legs terminating in a pair of leather boots the blackness of which shone like wild beast's eyes shining in the dark. One thing though chief wolfgang hated...being his coffee-drinking intimacy disturbed. But since winds not always blow the way ships desire, The elegant gray phone on Wolfgang's desk rang. "Hello", Chief Wolfgang said; his attempts not to show anger made the word come out of his mouth hindered by his he clinching of teeth that shone despite drinking lots of coffee during his work day. On the other side, the disturbing voice of his pain-in-the-ass, sergeant McDonald slammed his ear, causing Wolfgang to make a tolerable distance between  the phone and his hearing organ. “Hello, hello, Central Police Station…this is Sergeant, McDog…respond, please!” said McDogg on his communication device. 

Sergeant McDog is a police officer  in Canineville Police Station and well-known for his good manners, dedication and loyalty to his work. “Yes, Serg. What is the matter?” Answered Chief Wolfgang. “Sir, there is a live unidentified subject walking in front of the station main entrance” said alarmed officer McDog, and then quickly added, “Sir, it seems that it has emerged from inside the station”

Chief Wolfgang shouted, “Serg., what the hell are you taking about? A live unidentified subject...walking...” McDog interruptd confirming what he has just said, “Yes, Sir. That’s right…awaiting instructions, Sir, for dealing with this unknown subject” Running out of patience, Officer Wolfgang yelled, “Describe the subject, you idiot!” McDog said, “Sir, it is as small as cat. Sir, it is not bipedal. Right now it is stepping in a pool of water, walking on four. It has perky ears, a fluffy tail, a furry hide, and long whiskers, and Sir, it is mewing. Sir, the whole gang failed to identify the subject” Wolgang imatiently asked asked“Serg, does it have a black back with grayish stripes?” - “Yes, Sir” McDog responded. “are its four pedals white?” Wolfgang asked. “Yes, Sir” McDog answered. “And it has a white-tipped long black tail confidently curving upwards?” Wolfgang asked. “Yes, Sir” McDog answered, and then added, “You’re very smart, Sir. It seems, Sir, you know a lot about this dangerous subject.” - "Dangerous my ass!” Said Officer Wolfgang; his voice full of sarcasm.“What, Sir! Could you come again? I did not hear you clearly” Chief Wolf gange shouted,“Roll back you idiots...do not…I repeat...do not disturb the subject” Office McDog wondered,“Why, Sir?! The object looks dangerous" and then added after a short pause, "It could be a terrorist, Sir” Chief Wolfgang had a big gulp of his coffee and swished the inside walls of his cheeks with his tongue, and said, “You, idiot…this is our new sleuth transfer from the CIA Department” And  then mockingly asked, “Do you know what CIA stands for, Sssserg?” Confused, officer McDog answered, “Yes, Sir...it is the Cat Intelligence Agency, Sir” - “Yeeees, bravooo!” Still confused, officer McDog asked, “But, but…but why, Sir?”

“Because you’re a gang of idiots who needed a cat to lead you…Over and out.” Said Officer Wolfgang, slamming the phone down on the table.
