Just a small fan story I like to write, if you enjoy please follow my Tumblr
“Savage!” Blared Bogo, Savage turned from Judy, softly
removed her paw from his arm and stood at attention awaiting Bogo’s orders. “On
me Savage, Lets shut this thing down, NOW!”
“Sir, yes sir” replied Savage.
“I’ll deal with you later Hopps” explained Bogo pointing his
hoof at her, followed by a scorn.
Jack reached into his jacket pocket and pulled out his gun,
and then with his other paw, pulled out a silencer softly twisting it on “A
hunting we will go” he sung softly to himself in a whisper. He took a breath,
and fell onto Bogos flank running forward, towards the main entrance.
Judy pulled her gun out, staying close on Jack’s tail, Bogo smashed
the front door down like a battering ram bursting in full power, the room was
silent and the lights flickered, the aisles of the mart were dark and dingy and
the smell of fox was in the air, but none could be seen. Lighting tore the sky
followed by thunder, “Keep your eyes peeled lads” grunted Bogo, who then
twisted his head in a nod, a symbol for the other officers to split up into
Judy took the furthest aisle on the right taking slow steps
and making sure to check all blinds spots as she had been show in her training,
she was halfway down the Aisle when she came to a door, she heard talking
behind the door it was faint but she heard it, it was Nick! “I’ve made the
animals Savage now we gotta go!” Judy’s ears fell to her side at the words
savage, she turned around slowly, her heart started racing, she pointed her
light up towards the roof only to see a tail flutter by on top of one of the
shelves. She slowly turned her light off and put her back to the wall. “Oh,
this is bad”, she reached her paw to her radio “copy Bogo”.
Bogo took the centre Isle. He didn’t know however that the
ZPD officers were being hunted his radio sounded, it was faint as he had turned
it down and to crackly to make out, all he knew was it was Judy “Come again
officer Hopps?” he spoke back, the Weather making their radios useless
“savage, Bogo, the hostages are sav-“ she stopped suddenly
taking a deep swallow as she looked up to see a Jaguar walk by he was looking
left and right on the hunt, Judy stayed Perfectly still “please don’t see me”
Bogo spoke into his radio “come in Judy, I repeat I lost transmission,,
you’re breaking up, what’s happened to Jack Savage?” the radio was silent and
so Bogo knew it was useless he sighed and rolled his eyes. Lighting flashed and
above the isles sat two jaguars, down on all fours and on the Prowl, Bogo’s
ears twitched as he walked a few more paces, matched only by the Jaguars, he
came to the end of the aisle and his eyes widened “somethings not right” he
muttered. At the end of his row were ropes sprawled out across the floor and
scratches on the tiles “savage he muttered… Not jack savage, the hostages have GONE
savage” he spoke to himself realising what Judy was trying to say.
Bogo turned and shouted as loud as he could “Hostages have
been turned Savage! Watch your SIX”. At the end of his sentence the two jaguars
that had stalked down his aisle Hissed loudly, jumping at him, the first
knocking his gun out of his hand and the second bowled him over, he threw his
head forward tossing one off him like a rag doll, his size and strength making
him a worthy adversary “come on!” he shouted Shuffling his hoof to get traction
and pointing his horns at the one that had knocked his gun away.
Jack was the first to
Bogos aid flying around the corner “Bogo!” Shouted Jack coming into the aisle
to see him in duress fighting one of the Savage animals, The Jaguar with its
mouth latched to his right bicep and the Sergeant in turn had it in a headlock
screaming “let go Kitty!”, while slightly punching it to try and loosen its
grip, each hit looking as though it was making the Jaguars grip tighter. Jack saw the other jaguar slowly making its
way to Bogo’s blind side. It was about to jump when Jack picked up a can of
peas and hurled it hitting the Jaguar in the side of the face, it turned
hissing and began towards Jack, it was about to attacked when one of the aisles
smashed open. Everything was in slow motion as in came Fangmyer and his partner
Delgato fighting a bear that had turned savage. “It was an ambush” he cried as
he was being thrown around with the bear, he had in a headlock, the bear trying
desperately to get him off.
Jack who had been knocked off his feet by the scuffle slowly
raised rubbing his head, his eyes blurry but he could see the jaguar had
already steadied itself and was ready to pounce it was mid-air when Judy took a
shot at it coping it in the face, with the anti-Night Howler serum, The Jaguar
fell to the ground at Jacks feet unconscious
“Good shooting Hopps” he sighed in relief placing his hand
on a shelf to steady himself, Bogo and the others had detain the other two, who
were still savage, but under a muzzle and with paw- cuffs on limiting their
Bogo and the others were dragging them outside the shop when
Bogo turned back “Secure this place you two, we’ll handle these guys!”
The door slammed and Judy and Jack stood side by side, under
the flickering light. “well that was exciting” burst out Judy, laughing and punching
jacks arm, he rubbed it as if it hurt and smiled back at her, his ocean aqua
eyes held her purple, violet, moon crescent eyes “Judy…” he Began as he placed
his paw on her face, which obviously took her by surprise, she blushed
nervously and but before he could say anything she turned pulling his hand from
her face and began walking away “We need to clear the area, you go that side
and we will meet up at the back wall. Our radios are messing up so if you need
me holler out, understood?” jack who was hurt by Judy’s abruptness, shrugged it
off with a smile “yes ma’am” he stated with a salute.
Judy did spot checks but headed straight to the door she had
heard the voices coming from, she put her ear to the door and there was
nothing, just silence. She slowly placed her paw on the handle opening it and
peeking in, it was dark to dark to see, she lifted her flashlight and turned it
on, there was rows of Racking that seemed to be as high as skyscrapers. She took
a breath, rolled in and pulled her gun out in one fluid motion, stopping in a kneeling
position, she checked behind the door over near the racking and towards a small
office like structure.
The fox who knocked Nick out and was standing above him smiled
“looks like we have company”, he stated pulling Nicks gun from his holster.
There was nothing in the room she stood up straight and
began to shine her torch around. Then it hit her, her ears twitched, she wasn’t
alone, she could hear his breathing just to her left, she turned her head and
slowly raised her torch, she saw red paws on the ground in front of her “Oh
Nick, you frightened me” she began as she raised her torch to illuminate his
face, but just before she got to his face she saw his arm outstretched with a
gun, “Nick”. “Sorry Carrots” said the fox his voice almost mirroring Nicks, he
sighed pulling the trigger, the bullet tearing past into Judy’s arm making her
The torch dropped from her hand and rolled facing him, his
face still unilluminated. “Sorry Carrots, you know I wouldn’t do this if I had
another way” he stated, “Nick why are you doing this? Were partners!” cried
Judy, The fox aimed the gun at Judy’s head he was about to squeeze the trigger
when three shots rang off over Judy’s shoulder, bullets missing the fox barely,
who escaped on all fours into the darkness of the warehouse. In the door way
stood Jack his body concealed behind the door “you okay Officer Hopps, I heard
the shot and came running as fast as I could, who is that”. Judy chocked the
voice was unmistakable “it’s…its Nick”.
Judy could swear she heard Jacks teeth grinding together “bloody
fox’s untrustworthy criminal” he spar to himself in fury, a fury Judy had never
seen him have.
The fox walked over to where Nick lay unconscious, he was
wiping Nick’s gun on his shirt and gently placed it back in his paws. “See you
soon Kiddo!” stated the Fox slapping Nicks face playfully. Nick shot up
suddenly aiming his gun around the room “Was it a dream….what…what happened?”
Nick spoke to himself confused and disorientated. He got up, the blow to his
head making him dizzy, he stepped, fell a little, then shuffled some more, leaning
on the racking to keep his balance. He came around a corner and saw Jack
holding Judy up, her arm over his shoulders, bleeding. They both looked at him
as he came into view. As quickly as he could Jack placed Judy down carefully
who took a knee.
“Carrots! are you alright?” asked Nick going to walk forward,
he was about to pass Jack, who also walked forward, when Jack palmed Nick in
the chest hard making him fall back two or three steps, “That’s close enough
Fox, your gun, give it to me!” stated Jack his hand over his holster. “What?”
spat Nick, “I’m not giving you my gun…?” he stated looking down to the gun in his
hand and tightening his grip “I need to make sure my partners alright”. He went
to walk past once more, when Jack grabbed his arm, locked his paw and twisted
it using his years of Ju-Jitsu training and broke the gun from Nickls hand,
sliding it across the floor and again palmed Nick in the chest making him fall
back onto the ground. Nick had his paw over his chest breathing hard “what the hell
is your problem Savage?” Jack didn’t reply he simply loosened his tie throwing
it to the ground and rolled up his sleeves. Nick looked past him to Judy “Carrots?
What’s going on?” Jack stalked over to him “No more playing dumb con-man” he
growled, Nick got up and went to speak when jack did a sliding elbow into his
stomach, winding him, Nick falling to his knee holding his guts, but jack wasn’t
finished, He came up with an uppercut putting Nick on his back. Nick moved one
hand from his stomach to hold his injured jaw.
“You want to shoot officer Hopps, you will be punished by
the law. You are under arrest”. “I have no idea, what you talking about” spoke
Nick Getting up and spitting out a small bit of blood, his nose also bleeding, “but
if you want to go, let’s go, pretty boy” Nick Lunged at Jack, who maneuverer to
quick punching him in the ribs, a loud crunch being heard, his ribs obviously
broken under the immense punch from Jack, who then followed up with a seven
part destruction of Nick, hitting certain pressure points points, Nick threw
lefts and rights but Jack was to quick.
Nick was finally on the floor, finished, not an ounce of
fight left, one arm prying him up the other holding his broken ribs “Stay down
Nick” whispered Judy. Nick shook his head defiantly and again spat blood trying
to clear his mouth. Savage had walked over and picked up his tie, Nick went to
get up, but Jack, who seemed to be in some sort of trance, immediately put the
tie around Nick’s neck tightening it so he would have a better grip and cutting
off Nicks air supply and began to hook in across Nicks face each Punch making
Nick less and less conscious “Confess, Confess!” Jack kept shouting. Judy
watched on in horror as Jack tore apart her Partner, ”Confess Fox!” then it got
too much “JACK STOP! You’ll kill him.”
Jack suddenly came to a halt like the dark that seized control
of him was suddenly washed away his fist a few inches from another hit on Nick.
He dropped Nick and took two big steps back, looking at his blood soaked fur
around his knuckles, he shook his head as if running away terrible thoughts.
Jack began running his paws over his ears to flatten them, before tugging on
the bottom of his shirt to straighten the wrinkles, “I…I’m sorry”. His eyes
wide, his face stained with small dabs of Nick’s blood.
Behind Judy in the hall sat the other officers all in shock.
“Now, you know why they call him savage?” Laughed Nick through his pain,
coughing a little blood at the end. “I…I think its best I wait outside…arrest
him” finished Jack before removing himself.
The other officers walked into the room, Bogo leading them,
they all had their torches on Nick, whispering, Fangmyer and his partner
Delgato grabbed Nick under his arms and lifted him up, he was like a rag just
hanging their unable to stand. Bogo walked over to where Nicks gun had landed
and picked it up, clicking the release so the clip fell out, it was one bullet
short, Bogo raised an eyebrow, convinced and Judy was lost for words, “Hopps?”
asked Bogo showing Judy the clip, Judy looked at Nick, his fur was saturated in
seat, his uniform covered in Blood and his left eyes was swollen and bruised. She
looked down to where her arm was bleeding and remembered the voice, “it was
Nick” she thought, She chocked on her words as she answered Bogo, she couldn’t believe
what she was about to do. “Muzzle him” she whispered.
Nicks eyes widened and strained open his mouth dropping as
he was lost for words, he starred straight at her with his big green eyes,
Pleading his innocence, never had he felt such betrayal or hurt “Jud-“he began,
“You heard her boys” interrupted Bogo.
Fangmyer was shocked,
He felt awkward, and sad for Nick, but softly placed the Muzzle over Nicks head,
but before it was on, Nick began to Kick and fight “No, please, guys no” he
cried “not that”, the lights from Bogo’s Flashlight to eerily similar, but they
forced it on him and put his paws in cuffs, he was on his stomached, with
Delgato reading him his rights, he starred at Judy who held her fists cupped by
her side, unable to look back at her partner and when Nick realised she wouldn’t
looked at him he turned his head placing it on the cold concrete and passed out.
Nick was carried to Bogo’s Police car by Francine who put
him in the back.
Jack was sitting in the driver seat of his cruiser, staring
vacantly and grasping the steering wheel so hard it looked like the skin on his
knuckles was about to split and Judy, defeated, just walked the two blocks
alone in the cold back to her police cruiser.
