She stared at him, holding her favorite teddy bear in one hand and his pistol in the other. “Hi Dad.” Mai said. “Mai. You are 21. We can talk about this. What are you doing? Just put the pistol down.” Her dad said, trying to coax her into following his direction. “Dad, dad, dad” Mai said sarcastically as she waved the pistol above her head, swaying back and forth as she started to cry. “Mai. Just put it down. I am sorry for me and your mom divorcing in your childhood, and I am sorry that she died. It hurts me too, just put the pistol down and we can talk” Her dad said in a scared and frightened voice. “You don’t understand! You killed her! With all the stress and stuff you put her through, she died of a bad and broken heart. She was constantly scared about what was going to happen, if you were still stalking her, threatening her, and worst of all taking me from her. All I have is this teddy bear as family because you took away my real family.” Mai cried as she held the pistol straight out in front of her, aimed directly at her dad’s heart. “You’re a coward!” Mai screamed as Dave could see the police come in through the front door quietly. “Mai Eds, please put the gun down.” The police officer softly said as Mai turned around to face them. “You don’t understand what my dad has done. I just have to teach him a lesson.” Mai said as she faced her father again. “Taser! Taser!” Mai heard as she felt a million electric volts and fell to the floor. Her dad scrambled to pick up the pistol, making sure to unload it before he handed it to the officer. “Mai Eds. You have a right to remain silent.” The officer said as he dragged Mai to her feet and through the front door out into the cold winter air. The officer placed her against his squad car as he began to check her. “Do you have anything in your pockets?” The officer asked as he dug deeper into her pockets. “Geez, what are you searching for? Drugs? Needles? I have neither.” Mai said as the officer finished his search and put her into the squad car.
“What were you doing with the gun?” The officer asked, trying to get her to talk but she just ignored him and watched the sun set and saw fireflies start to take their night shift. “Dispatch. We have a suspect in custody, I am just about to bring her in through the main garage gate. Be advised and ready.” The police officer said into his walkie-talkie. “10-4. Is she a flight risk?” The dispatcher asked back. “No, she has no upper body strength to get away.” He responded as he looked at Mai in the rearview mirror and started to laugh. “At least I’m not fat with all those donuts you eat.” Mai fired back as the officer concerningly looked down at his stomach. Mai chuckled proudly as they entered into the police headquarters’ main garage. She could see about ten officers standing on the side, waiting and ready for anything that may happen. The police officer came and opened Mai’s door as the other police officers remained in their spots. “Mai, this way.” The police officer said as he led her into the police booking room. “Sit.” He said as he handcuffed her to one of the plastic chairs and walked away. Mai looked around the room and noticed how small it was for how many people were in it. There had to be at least 20 other criminals waiting in line for their fate just like her. “Pssst.” Mai heard next to her as she looked to her left and saw avery pretty, thin, red-headed girl sitting next to her. The red-head had messed up hair, her red lipstick smeared, and she looked like she hadn’t slept for a few days. “Yes?” Mai said coldly as her new friend unwillingly started to inch her way closer to Mai. “what are you in for?” The red head asked. “Aggravated use of a firearm. How about you?” Mai asked, not caring. “I got into a fight which explains my appearance.” The red head said as she started laughing a little. “Im Brie.” She said as she extended her hand out for Mai to shake. “Mai.” She was about to say but the police officer said it for her. “It was nice to meet you, brie.” Mai said as the police officer unhooked her from the chair and started to take her down a long and narrow hallway. “Same to you, Mai.” The red head said as she smiled. That was the last thing Mai saw before she was taken into one of the interrogation rooms and sat down.
“Okay, Mai Eds. Please explain your and your dad’s background for me a little bit.” The police officer said as he clicked his pen open so he could write down what she had to say. "And scene!" The director yelled from behind the camera. "That was excellent! You're hired Mai! well done." The officer grinned from ear to ear because he knew that Mai just crushed her first movie audition. She was excellent through the entire scene, from the fake gun to her being arrested. The red head came into the interrogation room as Mai took a minute to catch her breath.
