Challenges are some of the basic things that all police officers face from an hour to hour stand point in the job that they do. This is no different for the men and women of the 101st in Chinatown San Francisco. They family dynamic of the 101st tends to concern the top brass form time to time. Especially after the shootout in front of the building over 10 years ago.
Peter looked up from his computer when he heard a knock at the his office door. "Who is it?" asked Peter. "Your sister-in-law," says Karen. "Come in Karen. I was expecting Mary and the kids. How is it going with you and the family?" asked Peter. "We are doing good. It's been really busy with retirement and younger children. I am just happy to be able to spend more time with Kermit and the kids. I have you to thank for this, Peter," says Karen. "What do you men by that Karen?" asked Peter. "It has been 10 years since you saved my life and since you and Kermit lost your father. I would like to set up a celebration of life and honor those who have been lost," says Karen. "Does Kermit know about this?" asked Peter. He was the one that asked me to do this for the family," says Karen. "I will be happy to partake in the event when you have the time and date form me, Karen," replies Peter. Knock..knock. "Are you here Pete?" asked Mary. Karen walks over to the door and opens it up. "Hello Mary. I was just about to leave; just got done talking with Peter about a celebration event to honor Caine and to remember those that we lost on the 10 year anniversary of the shooting in front of 101st," says Karen. "I will be there as well, Karen. Good to see you again. We need to get together for lunch or dinner sometime soon," says Mary. "I would like that too," says Karen and Peter. Karen kisses her niece and nephew and give Peter and Karen a hug as she leaves the station.
"That is a really good idea Pete. Go give your dad a hug," says Mary. "Thank you for stopping you guys," says Peter as he grabs his kids and gives them both a big hug. "When are you going to come home tonight, daddy?" asked Blake. "As soon as I get the last piece of paperwork done for the day. I will be home before you got to bed tonight," says Peter. "Daddy!" yells Sarah. "hey there kiddo. How was class today?" asked Peter. "The training is going really good. I wish you would be able to come and watch sometime. I am getting better thanks to your help," says Sarah. "That is good to hear sweetheart. You know I will. I need to get this done today though. Do you have a class tomorrow?" replies Peter. "I do daddy," replies Sarah. "What time is the class?" asked Peter. "4 pm," replies Mary. "I will clear my schedule for tomorrow to see your class. No cell phone or pager. 100% yours after 330 pm. I can't wait to see the class," says Peter. "I am looking forward to it too daddy," says Sarah.
"I will see your to night," says Mary as she leans in to give her husband a kiss on the cheek. "I will see you tonight," says Peter as he gives his wife and kids a hug goodbye. "Jody, do have a minute?" asked Peter. "For you partner, I always do," says Jody. Jody starts to walk over to Peter's office to talk with him about an issue, when something caught her attention. "Peter?!" yells Jody. Peter opens his office door to see the Dalia Llama standing at the front of the station. He walks out to see what his holiness wanted. "Your holiness, what brings you to California?" asked Peter as he ushers them to his office to talk. Jody follows them into the office to give Peter some back up. "Ms. Powell. Captain Caine. I am in need of some help from you and your department."
