Summary: Patrick Malden has always dreamed of being a cop, and while the life of a security guard isn't the most glamorous, it's putting him one step closer to his goal. Patrolling the warehouses along the Los Angeles docks isn't his dream job either but it keeps food on his table and a roof over his head. Most nights are pretty routine; most nights, that is, until one fateful night in late June when a group of dock workers are unloading a shipment of electronics straight from Japan. Sounds fairly routine, right? Too bad there's something hidden in the cargo hold, something that is -- judging by the hissing -- pissed.
The discovery sets into motion a chain of events that takes Patrick's life into a direction he never could have foreseen.

As an added bonus, likesthesilence made art for me with the actors I cast as Jesse and Patrick. She did this on her own whim, and I thought it deserved recognition too. I am deeply appreciative to all my artists and mixer. Thank you guys so, so much!
