THUMP!! THUMP!! BKA-RAH!!
BANG BANG BANG!! BAM POW, TK-CHICK!!
"NEW MUSHROOM KINGDOM POLICE FORCE!! EVERYBODY, HANDS IN THE AIR WHERE WE CAN SEE THEM!!"
"CHEIF!! THERE'S A MAVERICK!! DU-"
The room went silent for a few moments as the obliterated torso of the Maverick exploded into a small flurry of flames, sending debris all across the room. The NMKPD officers, including Police Chief "Master Chief", Sargent Kirby and the Array of Mobians who had collapsed to the floor as the robot exploded, slowly began to stand up. The only person left in the room, was a thin-metallic figure wearing all blue. His Mega-Buster sizzled with a small trickle of smoke as it began to recover from the massive blast. "Not on my watch..." X said quietly before he turned around to the Police Chief. Chief, are you okay?" he asked as he pulled him to his feet. The Mobians remained on the ground, shielding their faces as the Officers came over and grabbed them, pulling them up to their feet. Each of the drug-makers was hauled out of the room, leaving only Kirby and X inside the illegal Mushroom Plantation. For many years now, the common power-up of the strength increasing Mushroom, native to the Mushroom Kingdom, had become a gateway to all sorts of horrible drugs. It was discovered that once a Mushroom has been crushed up, the fine, red and white powder you get could cause a high like no other. You could produce the drug yourself if you had the means, but most of the Mushroom plants were either destroyed or bought out by the crime syndicate run by Mob leader, Chun-Li.
Kirby let out a low whistle as he observed the large field of Mushrooms growing in a make-shift Green House. "Damn... This could be the most Mushrooms I've ever seen in my life... To think, these things used to help out people..." Kirby said to himself before he turned his attention back to X. He laughed a bit and crossed his round arms. "Well, this has certainly been a fun few days. Glad to have you along, X."
X finished scouting the remains of the Maverick to see if there were any salvageable parts, and stored them in his chest compartment. He turned back to Kirby and nodded. "At least now, Li's gonna have a lot more demand, which we can use to pinpoint other operations she might have. This job alone should guarantee a few weeks of peace for the downtown area, but Robotnik's Badnik-Bandits are still at large. They'll probably try to move in on Li's territory now, so be prepared for a war soon." X said as he adjusted his Mega-Buster to the "Flame Burst" setting and quickly made work of destroying the remaining Mushrooms that hadn't been taken in as evidence.
Kirby looked the Reploid over as he spoke and nodded when he mentioned a gang-war. It wasn't uncommon, but Eggman was notoriously known for trying to steal other crime lords turf when they were busted or raided. Then, Kirby's walkie-talkie went off and he heard the familiar voice of Sonic the Hedgehog.
"All units at Tidus-Lane and LittleBig Avenue, there's been constant noise complaints and one witness has called in about finding remains piled on a bed in the "Toadstool Inn". I think its another Organ-Trail Killing. Repeat, All units at Tidus-Lane and LittleBig Avenue, converge on the Toadstool Inn for possible OT killing."
"Shit." Kirby said as he held the communicator to his lips. "Sargent Kirby reporting, I'll be there momentarily." he said before he tucked the walkie-talkie back on his belt and laughed. "Another fun night of chasing after this sicko... X, you should probably get some rest. I know you've been unable to recharge since Friday because you've been occupied with this drug bust, so take the night off. I'll talk to you tomorrow." Kirby said sternly before he walked out of the room, and climbed onto the Warp-Star, quickly activating the police siren attached to it as he sped off down the street.
X stood up and sighed, checking his Mega-Buster. His energy was pretty low, and he felt very tired. He could do with a night off for a change. Making his way out of the lab, X stepped into the busy streets of the New Mushroom Kingdom and looked around. The night had just fallen and the sun was beginning to set, allowing him the always unpleasant experience of walking in the dark. He wasn't worried about getting mugged or anything thanks to his Mega-Buster, but he preferred not being alone in the dark when crime lords did all their work under the cover of night. Making his way down the increasingly emptying streets, X, after a half hour walk, came up to "The Lon-Lon Tavern" and entered. Lon-Lon was a pretty decent bar and was pretty popular. In the corner of the room, he saw Conker, piss drunk as usual, playing a game of poker with Inky, Pinky, Blinky and Clyde. He rolled his eyes at them and looked around, seeing Ryu, Sora, PAC-Man, Wario and a few others filling the tables. The barmaids walked around wearing their normally short clothing, smiling as they served the patrons. He saw Tifa, Riiku, Myrina, Morrigan and even Roll ((from Mega Man Legends, not the little girl version.)) working their shifts tonight. He sat down at the bar and ordered an E-Tank, before he realized who was serving him. He smiled and chuckled a bit. "Hey Samus, how's business tonight?" he asked with a smile.
