Jason Kelley stood in the break room of the station after finishing his report. At the moment, he was leaning on the window frame looking out to the city below. The case he had just wrapped had been a challenging one, but that was really nothing new to Jason. He had a reputation for solving difficult cases, one that was well known in the department.

While standing there, a slight sigh left his lips as he watched the people walk about. It was never lost on him that many of the things they did and seen went unseen by the general public. In many ways Jason wished that people saw all that he did, maybe it would change the way people look at police officers. Don't hold your breath Jason he said to himself before taking a sip of the drink he had in his hand. After doing so, he looked back out the window, his thoughts coming to his family. Along with his faith, Jason's family kept him going. It also helped that his wife Rachel was on the force as well. He knew full well that with his deep faith and family that he wouldn't have lasted as long as he has. While standing there, Jason didn't know he would soon have a visitor.

Swack!

The sound of paper landing on the break room table cracked the silence in the room, "Kelly." The unenthused greeting was more a politeness to let the other Officer know Colton had entered the room, even if it was hard to miss by the smack of paper on table. The stack of paper, if inspected, was nothing more than a folded up newspaper and a couple of magazines Colton had been tasked with bringing into the break room. He walked past the table after flopping the paper down, his limp a pronounced as it usually was.

His target was the coffee machine across the room. Upon arrival at the counter he set to making a fresh pot, first opening the machine up to dispose of the used filter and coffee grinds. The small brown stained paper was plopped into the trashcan beneath the counter with a swish to accompany it as it hit the trashbag. He sighed as he opened the cupboard door in front of him and plucked a filter from the bag. During his plucking of the filter, crinkly small bag in hand, Colt glanced over towards Officer Kelly for no particular reason. He went right back to what he was doing afterwards.

Jason snapped out of his thoughts when he heard the "swack" followed by the voice fellow Police Officer Colton Spade. "Greetings Officer Spade" he replied before walking over to the trash can and disposing of the cup that he had in hands. After doing so, looked back to Colton, seeing the stack of papers that he had with him. "Paper work is the bane of every police officer's existence." he said off the cuff before walking over and sitting across from him. Jason still had time before he had to head back out on patrol.

He never took quiet time for granted, taking full advantage of it when ever it came. It was something that came with his introverted nature. While he enjoyed being around others, Jason enjoyed being alone so he could recharge and reflect about things. He made a mental note to do a silent retreat again like he did two years ago, something that helped him out during a tough time back then. He though of asking Rachel to come with him this time around, having heard her express interest in going to the retreat center with him that he had gone to, making another mental note to talk with her about it when he got home.

"Paper work is my life right now," Colt grumbled in response as he finished setting the coffee maker up and snapped the cup back into place. Ever since returning to the station a whopping, what, six months ago? Colt had been assigned to Desk Duty. He was looking to get back into the field as soon as possible but understood there were risks. He needed time to heal first and foremost, even if his ego and pride were ready to be back on the beat.

He was sick of the non-stop flow of paper work that crossed his desk and just as tired with the constant calls he received for the Non-Emergency line. When silence fell over the room he left it at that, quietly watching the coffee drip. A wise man once said: the pot fills slower the longer you watch the drip. Or something like that. He abandoned it and moved to sit down at the break room table with Officer Kelly, sliding one of the magazines he'd just brought in back towards himself. He didn't even care what the magazine was and without focusing on the cover too much he flipped to the middle of the magazine only to be greeted by the smiling faces of stars he didn't know. A few more pages and he came across a quiz about boyfriends.

A short frown and he flipped back to the magazines' cover before sliding the latest issue of Cosmo away from himself. Well. That was not the magazine he wanted to read. Next on top was a run of the mill fake news tabloid- the sort that advertised Batkid FOUND! and Sasquatch on the front. He flipped it open and propped his head up on his hand, flipping the pages slowly.

"So." Colt normally would have let the silence continue but his eagerness for coffee- for anything that could keep him awake and his mind off the pain in his body, was begging him to strike up a conversation. "Shift beginning or ending? Somewhere in-between?"

Jason nodded a bit when Colton said that to him, knowing where he was coming from. There were times that he felt report writing was the only thing that he did. Though, it needed to be done lest an arrest get called into question. It was a part of the job that most people didn't know about and wasn't shown much on cop shows, which Jason wasn't a big fan of in the first place. The one that he did watch only made him shake his head at the arrogance of the detective that the show was centered around.

Jason pushed that out of his head when Colton asked him about his shift, looking over after snapping out his thoughts. "In the middle, just dropped off a guy who had a little to much to drink and at the moment, just taking some time before heading back out." he replied honestly while sitting there, his phone in hand at the same time. Outside, his wife Rachel, who was also on the force with him, walked by as she headed back out to her patrol car, seeing Jason and Colton at the same time. Jason saw her after he spoke and nodded to her before she was out of sight. Rachel did the same, then headed out. Once she was gone, Jason looked back to Colton while putting his phone back in the case he had.

"In the middle, just dropped off a guy who had a little to much to drink and at the moment, just taking some time before heading back out." Not newsworthy but Colt'd delt with his fair share of people who'd had too much. He even amused himself with the dark humor he found in his accident before flipping the magazine shut and looking up, drawing in a deep breath.

But he couldn't think of anything else to say at first, so bobbed his head in a nodding motion, his gaze drifting past Kelly as he leaned to the side to peer at the coffee pot. "S'how is Mrs. Officer Kelly," he smiled tiredly, just the slightest of smiles that lasted even less time than his initial greeting had. Obviously Colt was entirely unaware Rachel had passed behind him, but that was alright. It was polite small talk. Not that he'd spent much time speaking with Jason on a day to day basis besides where paperwork might have them rubbing shoulders. Before the accident had been one thing. Colt had been just about as a social butterfly in the station as one could get. Now? Not so much. He preferred keeping to himself and walking as little as possible throughout the day.

He swore if that coffee dripped any slower it'd start forming stalactites or some shit.

It was clear to Jason that Colt was tired while also noticing that he was unaware of the fact that Rachel walked by them. "Rachel is doing well...working hard like always." he replied while looking back to Colt, seeing how slow the coffee machine was working. "Unless I'm wrong, someone put in a work order on that thing." Jason said off the cuff before standing up and walking over to where Colt was standing, looking the machine over after walking up. "On second though: maybe we should just get a new one...not that it really matters to me, more into looseleaf tea to be honest." he said seconds later after looking the thing over, standing back up at the same time.

Jason never really acquired a taste for coffee, having tried it once when he was younger and wasn't that impressed. He got into hot tea when he was in the military and hasn't stopped drinking it since then. Jason often got friendly grief from Rachel and those they knew about his drinking tea, but he just took it stride and kept on drinking it. "If I may: try looseleaf tea, much quicker to make and has less caffeine then coffee." Jason said off the cuff as he stood across from Colt.

Colton gave a weak chuckle when Kelly suggested tea since it had less caffeine, "Right now that's all I'm running on is caffeine, take that away and I might as well be dead." It wasn't an understatement. Before all this Colt had never really been a coffee drinker himself. He tapped the side of the machine, causing it to sputter out it's stream of coffee into the decanter below. "But yeah, this thing should probably be replaced. Runs friggen twenty four hours a day pretty much." Any electronics that did that were bound to run out eventually. Colt might have been wrong but he was pretty sure this was the same unit that was here before his accident a few years ago. It was probably past time to replace it.

The decanter was roughly filled to the first hatch mark on the glass. One cup. And that was all Colton needed. He opened the cupboard above the machine and pulled out one of the mismatched collection of mugs the station had going. Just mugs no one wanted around the house or had ended up left behind for so long at the station that no one claimed. He turned the mug around and glanced at the design. "Christmas in August, tha'll do." He figured the machine was forgiving enough that he could steal away the first cup of coffee without too much issue. As he did so a few drops of coffee sizzled onto the burner plate. He poured himself a cup and then slid the decanter back into place, then went on to add creamer and sugar to his mug.

Jason nodded a bit when Colton said that to him. "Point taken" he said gently while watching the younger man finish up. "Not that I drink it that much but coffee seems to be the life blood of police officers." he said off the cuff before walking back over to the table and getting the mug he had been using, then walked over to the sink and cleaned it out before placing it back in the cabinet where he found it. After doing so, he looked back to where Colton was, having a flashback to when he was new to the department.

Jason had always wanted to follow in his parents footsteps and go into law enforcement when he got out of the army. It proved to be a good fit for him, though early on he heard stories of what his dad had done during his career. Jason was thankful that no one on the department compared him to his dad, save for one person, but that didn't last very long. Jason was soon snapped out his thoughts when his phone beeped, indicating he had a message. He looked at his phone, seeing it was from dispatch. "Duty calls" he said to Colton before heading out, getting his hat at the same time.

"Not that I drink it that much but coffee seems to be the life blood of police officers." "Life blood of my family house," Colt had muttered in response as he took a first hesitant sip. It was like crack for cops. Or. Well. In the Spade House hold Coffee had been a sacred thing. Considering just about one out of two Spades were in Law Enforcement, it made sense. He only glanced back to the table when Officer Kelly walked back and a few short moments later he was being paged. Paged. Colton considered the term for a split second. Did they still call it paging, was it technically still a page since it wasn't coming from a pager? ... He wondered briefly if he had his old pager before Officer Kelly was giving his parting. "Duty calls" "Watch yourself out there brother."

They were all brothers and sisters in blue here. Or, in a few cases, maybe an Uncle in Blue. But the general saying was true enough. After Officer Kelly had departed it left Colt in the break room by himself for the rest of his break. Part of that break was dedicated to uttering a mantra of not going crazy in front of a desk before he headed back to said desk and began work once more.
