A/N This story is dedicated to the victims and survivors of Hurricane Harvey that hit Texas on August 25, 2017 and to the people and animals that came from near and far to try to help with the rescue and care of hurricane victims(both two legged and four legged). Some even lost their lives in their efforts to help. All that came are what some of us are calling unsung heroes because while some names we know there are many more that we don't. The whole state thanks them, not just the ones that were in areas of danger.

This story has been researched as thoroughly as possible. I've read different articles and watched various videos concerning this subject. Terms that are used by biker gangs in this story are also a product of researching various information concerning biker gangs as are the different methods of joining and crimes that might be committed by current or prospective members.

This story was thoroughly proofed by Shergar.

I meant to note that this story was inspired by a shootout involving motorcycle gangs in Waco, Texas that took place on May 17, 2015. The story was also written back then but it took me a long time for a friend to convince me that others should be able to read this story as well, so I finally sent it to my beta to check over for me before posting.

The Unsung Heroes

The recent surge of motorcycle gang crimes that had recently plagued San Francisco and the Bay area had more than just the citizens concerned. The motorcycle gang had not limited their activity to just one area nor one type of crime. Mike and Steve and the rest of SFPD seemed to be barely holding their heads above water. Jeannie was due home from Arizona State University soon for college break. Mike was worried even more about Jeannie's safety during this time, as was Steve. The two men talked of her remaining in Arizona at least until this situation was under control. Mike mentioned his concerns to Jeannie. She was pleased to hear that Steve shared the concerns. Although she understood their fears, Mike was told Jeannie would put off arrival to only a month. Jeannie Stone wanted and needed to come home. She wasn't about to let a motorcycle gang stop her from being there. Mike agreed to a delay of a month although he felt the delay should be indefinite. The day Mike spoke with Jeannie, Steve was approached in the hallway by Captain Roy Devitt and Captain Tony Castillo. He had been just about to go into the homicide squad room when he heard someone call out to him.

"Steve, hold up a minute. We'd like to talk to you," Devitt called out as they headed toward Steve.

"What's up, Roy?" Steve let go of the door knob and moved against the wall. "Captain Castillo, good to see you again."

"Good to see you again, Steve. How's that girl of yours?" Captain Castillo greeted him.

"I'm sorry, I guess I'm a bit lost. Which girl did you mean?" Steve questioned.

"Jeannie Stone. I thought you two were an item. I guess I heard wrong." Captain Castillo seemed flustered.

"Her father's firmly against Jeannie dating cops. I'm not sure any would be brave enough to try breaking Mike's rule of no cop dating allowed. To answer your question though she's really good. She's due to come home for vacation. With what's been going on, Mike was going to try to convince her to stay in Arizona," Steve answered with a smile that changed to a worried look

"That's what we wanted to talk to you about, Steve. What's been going on that is. Do you have the time right now?" Devitt inquired.

"Sure, Roy. Where do you want to talk?" Steve asked.

Steve tried to read their faces but failed. They went into homicide and into one of the interrogation rooms. Steve leaned against the wall as the two sat at the table. Steve waited for one of them to state what they were wanting.

"Steve, we've kicked around names of officers that could be sent undercover to try to get close to the Vagos and their associates. I mentioned you to Roy because I remembered the job you had done on that undercover assignment we worked together. We were wondering if you'd be willing to give it a shot?" Captain Castillo inquired not taking his eyes off Steve.

"Normally we would have run this by Mike first. I know he's not going to be happy we didn't, but it was just one of those things. Tony had mentioned you when this discussion started. I admit I wasn't in favor of you as an option. Sometimes, though, when you're up against the wall..." Devitt let the thought dangle.

"I would ask if you're serious, but I know you wouldn't be here if you weren't. I'd have to talk this over with Mike before I could give you an answer," Steve answered seriously. "You already knew that though."
