Noodle Pack 1: A rather strange morning

[A slight snore from the bed sitting in 1449 Mitchell road seems to fill the entire room as the figure dreams away the morning. Or more appropriately, the figure seems to be having a nightmare as he wakes up, sitting up with a start.]

"Not my noodles!"

[Now awake and taking a look around the room, Gumshoe's eyes first fall on the alarm clock beside his bed.]

"Oh crap! I'm late for work!"

[Going over to a nearby phone, he quickly dials the number for the Chief of his department, Criminal Affairs. Since he's usually at his computer at his desk, when it picks up, Gumshoe begins talking immediately.]

"Hello, chief? This is Gumshoe! I don't know why, but my alarm didn't go off and I'm going to be late into work. But don't worry, I'll grab the next bus and be there shortly!"

[Gumshoe tosses the receiver back onto the phone and runs to get dress, not realizing he missed, allowing whoever is on the other line to hear him stumble around his surroundings.]

"Where's my badge? Or my gun?! Oh man, I hope I didn't lose them again... I'll have to fill out another lost item form, and they get mad when you lose a gun... Wait, where's my trench coat?! That was a gift from Maggey!! Oh crap, I have to hurry or I'll miss the bus!"

[The sounds that follow are Gumshoe hurriedly putting on a suit, running down the stairs, and slamming the door behind him as he tears down the sidewalk, looking for the bus stop he usually takes in the morning to the police department.]

[A long period of silence passes in the house before the front door is opened once more and someone climbs the steps again. The person then picks up the receiver and dials again.]

"Um, chief? Gumshoe again. I think I'm going to have to make that 'be there shortly' to 'I'm not going to be in today.' I'm not sure how, but I think I'm in another town or something, or at least in a part of the city I've never seen before. But once I get back home and find my badge and gun, I'm sure things will be fine and I won't be late tomorrow. Alright, chief? Chief? .....Hello?"
