Chuck Wendig: Taking The Cup

OK, so I’m a little late with this week’s Chuck Wendig Flash Fiction Challenge.  It’s okay, I guess.  It’s still on time.  Been a crazy week.  I wasn’t sure how this one was going to turn out, but I like what I came up with.  The theme is They Fight Crime (Amongst Other Things).  The instruction is to go here and get a character prompt then turn it into a story.  In theory, the characters in your prompt will be fighting crime in your story.  Mine turned out to be an origin story for a pair of crimefighters.  We had 1,000 words to play with, I spent 999.

My prompt was as follows:
