Gladdening yet earnest, this is a heartfelt little short that details an important talk between our two partners in blue following an upsetting occurrence on the job. Candid dialogue and unsuppressed feelings add to the sincere tone as Nick and Judy discuss the inherent dangers of their profession and try to come to an understanding. It’s always painful to see either of them hurting, both physically and emotionally, but you’ll be rewarded by the end of this work with soothing words and a respectable amount of comfort as these two find peace of mind with each other. – DrummerMax64

Description :
When a pursuit of a criminal lands Nick in the hospital, Judy wonders if she made a mistake in pushing him to work with her in the ZPD, by putting the fox she cares so much about in constant danger. Nick lifts Judy’s spirits by reminding her of her own convictions as an officer of the law, and that while he might not be the top of the class like she is, he’s more than capable of standing his ground in their line of work.
