This is a 1-shot spinoff from "The Year I Stopped Being Invisible." It doesn't really fit in the continuity, so just think of it as a "deleted scene" with Rick and Taine. It might give more insight into the "real" Rick and Taine than the main story, but isn't part of the storyline.
This story is pure fiction and does not relate to any actual persons or events.
A short and complete story describing 24 hours in the life of Detective Sergeant Michael Lingard dealing with stress before making one of the most important decisions he's ever been faced with, and he doesn't even know that part yet! Does he make the right decision? You tell me?
