Out And About--Tag Ethan
I Hate Myselves, No Escape
Harvey hasn't been out much, yet. Despite the weird things that people must be used to in a world like this, half-faced men aren't exactly common.

However, he's getting stir-crazy sitting in the office all the time. So here he is, taking a walk.

Ethan is driving down the street with the lights flashing, on his way back to the firehouse in the Ecto-3. He's coming back from a simple call and notices Harvey walking. He pulls over to the side and rolls down his window. "Hey Harvey, where ya going?"

Harvey shrugs. "Just, you know, out. I was going nuts sitting around in there." He smirks.

"Want company? I just have to drop off this baddie in the containment unit and if there are no other calls I can meet you over at that ice cream stand in about ten minutes." He pats the smoking ghost trap on the seat beside him.

He thinks a moment, then shrugs and flips for it.

"Sounds like a plan."

"Cool. Be right with you." He turns the siren on again and heads to the firehouse. After depositing the nasty in the containment unit and checking in with the guys and Janine, he heads out to meet Harvey. The guys get quite a lot of attention and since he's in uniform he gets stopped a couple times by fans making him a couple minutes late to meet Harvey. "Sorry I'm late. Buy you an ice cream sandwich to make up for it?" he asks as he jogs over to his colleague.

"Go right ahead, it's your money."

Not a very gracious acceptance to Ethan's way of thinking, but nonetheless he buys two ice cream sandwiches and hands one to Harvey.

"No legal stuff to deal with today huh?" he asks as he starts walking. "Quiet day all around it seems..... you might get some paperwork on that last call." he says, wincing apologetically.

"Thanks." He takes a bite. Watching him eat is rather disturbing.

"Nothing that I couldn't finish in about five minutes, anyway."

"You're welcome."

Ethan nods. "We try to be careful but proton streams aren't the most precise form of energy. They work though."

"Better than nothing, right?"

"Well if there was nothing, there'd be no Ghostbusters and I'd be out of a job, so yeah.. better than nothing."

"True enough, I suppose."

(And next post will be our 'heroism' moment starting, what do you say?)

Ethan had been so busy talking that he didn't notice they had wandered into a deeper forested part of the park. Not many people around, very quiet. Maybe a bit too quiet.

"Maybe we should turn around and go the other way."


"That might be a good idea, yeah."

Yes? What is it?
Look over there
What . . ? Oh. Shit.

Harvey frowns and nods to a particularly dark spot. "Is it just me, or is that poor bastard getting mugged?"

Ethan looks over to the area that Harvey is indicating and he squints. "Shit, I think you're right. Where the hell is my cellphone?" he frantically searches the pockets of his flight suit but to no avail. Apparently he won't be calling the cops.
