I was always excited about anything new, in the back of my mind I knew that I had a ton of potential. One day, after driving too close to someone on my bicycle and almost getting hit by a car, I saw this man in blue pull me up onto the curb. We started talking and he told me his name was Rick. Rick must have been one hundred years old and he used to be an actual cop! My heart dropped but my mind went into overdrive. He told me that he was now retired and had decided to take on a job as a private security guard. I couldn’t believe that there were so many exciting things out there, if I only knew. After chatting with him for a while, Rick told me that he was actually working on getting his own security firm off the ground. He said this would be the first step in getting his old life back. I got excited, I told him that I would help him any way I could. Rick gave me a current business card and told me to call if I needed anything.
Over the next few weeks, we kept in touch almost every day while he tried to drum up some work. It actually worked out, one of his clients needed someone on a temporary basis and he was able to get me the job! This was my chance! Finally, my good fortune had come after four long years of believing that it had passed me by. I was going to be working with Rick! I couldn’t believe it.

He asked if I would be interested in helping him get it going. I knew how to set up a business, and after some checking, there was nothing that seemed illegal about what he was doing. The next day, Rick and I walked into our bank and opened up an account in the name of Rick’s Security Guard corporation. We then went to the local business directory and found out all there was to know about the city of Toledo. The Streets book listed every address in the city, and it was a matter of looking for a likely looking house. Rick would take my car, drive around the city and find a new street name, then call me from his cell phone so I could find it in my map book. The first house he spotted looked perfect. It was set back from the street and had an overgrown lawn that would make it hard to see what they were doing. There was a security company sticker on one window and some junk yard stickers on another. A big “For Sale” sign was out front.

When we’re young and our hearts are full of longing, we often live in romance novels. But for many of us, the books don’t give us enough. What if all the lovely feelings were real? You could find out for yourself and fall in love with a cop who just happens to be your partner.

As I learned more, I began to really get into the business of becoming a police officer. While most people were sitting at home with their heads under blankets, I was actually getting off my safety blanket and taking charge of my own future. After three years had gone by and it was time for me to take the test, I was nervous as hell. I had been watching the news and not only was Rick a civilian police officer, but he had also become a reserve officer. He was beyond professional, he was a workhorse. So I decided to go in and give it my best shot even though I knew that if I hadn’t passed it would be over for me as a candidate.
The test was not as scary as it sounded. It lasted longer than an hour, but all of the questions were multiple choice and had about five or six possible answers each. So for me it was like taking three of the country’s standardized tests back-to-back-to-back and counting at the same time.

I tried to be optimistic but deep down, I knew that I was in for a little bit of hardship. The day finally came, and even though I had been studying for months, when it was time to take the test I couldn’t concentrate. My stomach turned into knots as I walked up to the building with my legs shaking like crazy. If a typical person failed this test, they would’ve felt nervous and scared, but for me these feelings were normal. I knew that the test was going to be difficult because it had an eighty percent failure rate. I was so worried about failing that when I walked into the room and sat down, I felt like my head was stuck in quicksand.
“Hey, you need to focus,” I said to myself as fear shot down my spine. The look on my face must’ve been pretty funny because one of the students sitting by me started laughing at me. He was cute, and I had a crush on him for months, but no matter how hard I tried, I just couldn’t seem to get him. Every time the female teacher looked at me funny it would push me into thinking that he liked her more than he liked me.

It was time for me to meet Rick and I wasn’t looking forward to it. When I got there, he had his head down, as if he was deep in thought. After a few minutes of waiting, Rick looked up at me and said “well buddy, you’re it.” I couldn’t believe what I was hearing! Rick told me that the test had gone very well and he was sure that my entire future would be on the line when I took it. Rick told me that the test would not be easy and to prepare for anything. Rick said he had made sure to tell the people conducting the test that he was a reserve officer. My initial reaction was to tell him that I was more than old enough and had been a police officer for years. Rick then told me that he wanted me to know that he had made sure of me. I really didn’t know how to react. The test would be very difficult, yet I wanted it to go well enough so that they would make me a full time officer. It turns out that there’s more than one way to skin a cat and Rick knew it all along.
