Silver Moon drove down the road as she enjoyed the scenery. White Lion was taking a nap on his bean bag chair. Black Wolf was reading a book on his tablet computer. Without any warning, sirens blared behind the trolley. Silver Moon saw the flashing lights and pulled over to the side of the road.
A police car stopped behind the trolley and an officer stepped out. Silver Moon opened the front doors.
“Ma’am, I’m afraid you’re driving a stolen vehicle.”
“What? I wasn’t aware of that.”
Black Wolf set his tablet down on the end table next to his bean bag chair. White Lion opened his eyes.
“Yes, I think I can prove it. Although, the old style manual driving is a giveaway. Trolleys don’t come with that. Please step off the trolley.”
Silver Moon stood up and walked off the trolley. Black Wolf sat still and listened. The officer walked to the front of the trolley and removed a panel to the engine. He looked inside.
“Yeah, that’s what I thought. This is the missing trolley.”
“Look, some guy let me take the trolley for nothing. I didn’t ask any questions.”
“Why not? Why would someone give a trolley away for free? That never occurred to you?”
“No. At the time I needed to get out of my apartment because I couldn’t afford it anymore. I was distracted by bills I couldn’t pay.”
“Oh. You could be lying to me and just giving a sob story so I won’t arrest you.”
“Then whose trolley is it supposed to be?”
“It belongs to a Mr. Na’athan LeBleu.”
Black Wolf stepped off the trolley. “Sir, I’m Na’athan LeBleu and I never knew I owed a trolley. If it is my trolley, then I will drop all charges against this lady.”
The officer stared at him. “Now, this is going too far. How can you prove who you say you?”
“You can scan my fingerprints.” Black Wolf held up his right hand.
“I see. Then come with me. Lady, stay put.”
“Okay.” Silver Moon walked around to the door to check on White Lion. She saw him standing on the stairwell. “Stay put, little one. I don’t want to leave you behind.”
White Lion blinked.
The officer lead Black Wolf to the car where Black Wolf sat down as the officer put his hand on the scanner. It quickly scanned his fingerprints. The officer and Black Wolf watched the computer screen as it went through the files to come up with a match. It came up with a match for Na’athan LeBleu.
“Well, this case is just gone off the deep end. You are who you say you are, so the trolley is yours.”
“Milady told you the truth about how she ended up with the trolley.”
“Yes, well, you better contact the lawyer about this. I can drop the charges for now, but he will need to hear about this to keep them dropped.”
“I will do that.”
They both got out of the car. Black Wolf walked over to Silver Moon and smiled at her.
The officer followed and turned to her. “I do apologize. The trolley is with its rightful owner and I can’t do anything when he doesn’t want to press charges against you, so you’re free to go now.”
Silver Moon nodded and the officer went back to his car. He drove off.
White Lion tried to walk past Silver Moon to get off the trolley. She put her arms out and picked him up. “No, dear, we’re leaving together. I can’t leave you somewhere by yourself. Do you want us to separated?”
“No.” He sighed as she carried him back on the trolley.
