Loss and Integrity
On March 6th, 2021, Pred was on the phone with Erin when he asked her to do him a favour and try and get him into a poker game that would be starting shortly at the casino, the issue being that police officers were banned from the premises. Erin replied that she'd try her best to get him in, even at the risk of losing her job at the casino, however she called him back within about a minute to inform him that there was unfortunately no way for her to get him into the poker game.
Pred ended up managing to find his own way into the casino where he ran into Erin at the poker table, and she ended up spectating the game by his side for a good while. After Erin watched Pred lose a large amount of money at the poker game, she started throwing single dollar bills at him, calling him her personal stripper and asking him to dance for her, but Pred refused, stating that he still had some integrity left.
Modelling and Gems
On March 7th, 2021, Pred ran into Erin while she was walking around barefoot, and asked Pred on his opinion on her feet as she was planning on selling pictures of her feet at the art gallery. Pred offered to take the pictures for her, which Erin gladly accepted and led to an impromptu photoshoot with Erin as model. After taking the photos, Pred asked Erin for a favour as he was looking to acquire gemstones to investigate the appraisal process at the art gallery, and offered Erin a free favour in exchange for a few gems. Erin replied that she would only do the favour for Pred if he would put her toes in his mouth, though Pred immediately denied the request. In the end Erin agreed to try her best to get the gems for him in exchange for a favour down the road.
On March 9th, 2021, Erin physically assaulted Pred in front of the district attorney by running her tongue through his mustache, causing Pred to immediately recoil from her, angrily accusing her of assaulting him, and calling her a "pink-haired floozy". Erin tried to claim that she didn't assault him, but even the district attorney agreed that she most definitely assaulted him, though they ended up not pressing charges against her.
On March 13th, 2021, Erin called Pred as she was out hunting, slightly worried about her safety when she had a suspicious man following her at the the lake atop Mount Gordo, and asked Pred to help her scare him in some way, which he agreed to do. As Pred got close to the location, Erin informed him that even more men had shown up, and that the men had also pointed their guns at her, immediately causing Pred to call for additional units over the radio, including a request for a helicopter unit. As Pred was watching over Erin for her safety from a concealed location whilst awaiting the additional units, he noticed a man standing next to Erin with a pistol in hand, giving him enough reason to believe Erin's earlier claims.
Erin was stood atop a rock in the middle of the lake surrounded by three men when Pred moved in as the first unit alongside the helicopter unit, negotiating for Erin's safety in exchange for one of their friends whom Pred had already detained a bit further away from the lake. One by one the men swam towards Pred as they got surrounded by multiple armed officers who came in as backup, until all the men were placed under detainment, and Erin was recovered to safety. Pred discussed the men's punishment with Erin, to which she wished to have Pred scare the men, but not arrest them.
Pred ended up punishing the men in various different ways; the first man he personally insulted in front of his friends, the second one he scared by threatening to send him to jail for suspicions of weapons trafficking, and the third he beat up with his nightstick. With Erin's life seemingly no longer being in danger, Pred made his way back to the city.
Vouch Under Oath
On March 15th, 2021, Erin called upon Pred to vouch for her in a court appeal. Pred got off on a shaky start by talking negatively about Erin, however when he asked for clarification on what exactly Erin was appealing, he realized that Erin had actually been mistreated by another officer. Pred pointed out the mistakes that were made by the other officer, and ended up greatly helping Erin's appeal, resulting in the reinstation of her driver's license.
The Unforeseen Sting
On March 16th, 2021, Pred was in pursuit of Frank Fritugo, who was fleeing from Pred in a car whilst Erin was in Frank's passenger seat. After a lengthy pursuit, Frank ended up getting into a rough car crash, which somehow ended up saving him as he got flung from the car, out of Pred's sights, however in doing so he left Erin behind. Pred ended up questioning Erin for Frank's whereabouts, but she refused to cooperate, causing Pred to force her into helping him set up a sting operation to catch Frank, in exchange for not getting charged with obstruction of justice.
Pred called in a tow for Frank's crashed out vehicle, and made Erin wait next to the vehicle to try and lure Frank out of hiding, whilst Pred went and hid on a concealed vantage point. After watching Erin for a long time, Frank was nowhere to be seen, but the tow operator did show up, alongside two other unknown men. As the other men were talking to Erin, one of them suddenly pulled out a firearm, immediately causing Erin to raise her arms in the air, and Pred to rush down from his vantage point to aid her. Pred forcefully instructed the men against the car at gunpoint, however as Pred was placing one of them in handcuffs, he tried to pull out his firearms, causing Pred to shoot him in the back out of self-defense. In the end, the entire situation turned out as a misunderstanding and Pred disappointingly let them go free after getting the injured man medical attention.
As Pred was about to leave, Erin asked him for a ride back into the city, however as they were walking to his car, Pred pulled out his nightstick and threatened to beat Erin in an alleyway for information about Frank's whereabouts. Erin hesitantly followed Pred into the alleyway towards Pred's car, keeping her distance as she stated that she'd only allow Pred to beat her in the bedroom.
The Punished Samaritan
On March 17th, 2021, Pred was getting chased by his own father, Tony Andrews, who was threatening to beat him with a flashlight, when Pred received a call from Erin. Pred ended up screaming for help from Erin, who immediately offered to rescue him as she urgently asked him for his location, which Pred relayed to her. As Andrews chased Pred onto a rooftop of an apartment building, Andrews fell off, causing other police officers to respond to the injured officer.
Erin ended up showing up a short while later, screaming for Pred to get into her car as she was already being chased by other officers as she broke several traffic laws to rescue Pred in a hurry. Pred was about to get in with Erin to get away together until Travis Tribble forbade him from going with Erin, leaving Erin to flee from the other officers by herself, whom were only after Erin because she tried to save Pred.
After Erin's lengthy car chase, which Pred wasn't further involved in, Erin ended up going to jail for a long time, and with a hefty fine attached to it, which she fully blamed Pred for. Following many angry texts and comments from Erin, Pred ended up partially paying for Erin's fine from her attempted rescue.
Start of Becoming a Nemesis
On March 21st, 2021, Erin had been on the run for a couple days, successfully evading the police in many pursuit, but placing a large target upon herself from law enforcement, during those days she had also been taunting Pred in various ways for being unable to catch her. Erin stated that the main reason she was even on the run from the law, was because she enjoyed playing a game of cat and mouse with Pred more than she originally expected.
This day initially seemed like a repeat of the previous days as she continued to evade Pred and other officers numerous times, that was until Pred came incredibly close to catching her as her vehicle was running very low on fuel due to an especially long pursuit, forcing her to leave her own car behind as she had to call one of her friends to pick her up in the middle of the pursuit. Whilst her friend managed to keep Erin out of Pred's custody, Pred was content with the result as he had managed to grab hold of Erin's personal vehicle and had it brought back to MRPD for seizure. Before having the car seized to the impound lot, leaving Erin with a heavy fine to pay should she wish to have her vehicle returned to her, Pred decided to take a selfie with the car to claim it as a personal victory, eventually sending the picture to Erin to taunt her, who was noticeable bitter upon seeing the picture.
Later in the day, Erin had managed to retrieve her car from the impound lot and once again got into a lengthy pursuit with the police, eventually losing control of her vehicle and rendering it immobile after flipping it onto it's roof. Erin was finally brought into police custody after being on the run for multiple days, giving Pred the honour of officially unmasking her on the scene, gleefully taunting her as he did so. With Erin having her car retrieved from impound, Pred decided to take the chance to make Erin watch him drive her car and do victory laps in front her, before once again taking her car down to MRPD for another expensive seizure fine.
Even though the pair had a fierce competitive rivalry whilst Erin was on the run, once she was transported down to the holding cells, Pred immediately changed his behaviour when Erin was facing excessive criminal charges that Pred heavily disagreed with. Much like when Pred was vouching for Erin in court a week earlier, he once again pointed out how Erin was being unfairly treated, and how the higher ranking officers were making big mistakes leading to a cruel and unusual punishment for Erin. Pred standing up for Erin turned into a lengthy argument between multiple officers, eventually leading to the excessive charges being dropped in favour of Erin, exactly like Pred had been pushing for.
Later that night, Pred received a phone call from Erin as she told Pred in a sad tone that she didn't have enough money to get her back from the impound lot after Pred seized it. Pred initially refused to give her any money, but as she kept pleading for help, Pred gave in and made his way to the impound lot for her. As Pred handed her the money, she lovingly said "Thank you, my favourite shrimpy!".
Declared as Nemesis
In the early morning of March 22nd, 2021, Pred received a call from Erin asking to meet up for an unknown reason, however Pred was unable to do so as he was in the middle of an investigation, and Erin didn't have the time to wait for him. When Pred started calling Erin a criminal, as Pred no longer regarded her as just a business owner after she went on the run for days, Erin declared herself as Pred's arch nemesis, with Pred immediately replying that Erin wasn't worthy of being his arch nemesis, leading to a lengthy argument between the two. Later in the day, Pred ended up changing his mind a bit, whilst still not finding her worthy enough to regard her as his arch nemesis, he decided to take her declaration seriously, and go harder on her whenever he would catch her breaking the law.
The Underground Raid
In the late afternoon of March 22nd, 2021, Erin came to Pred asking for help in regards to her employee interviews for the Digital Den, stating that she wanted some way to employ a scare tactic to see how they'd react. She asked Pred to raid them during their interview and act like they were getting arrested, once Pred gladly agreed to help her, they decided to act out their plan in a sinister-looking underground fighting pit. Pred decided to relay the plan along to Jackie Snow, and the two ended up getting multiple other officers involved for the raid.
They ended up gathering eight officers in total, and set up against the door to the underground area. After a quick count down, all the officers breached and made their way down the stairs with their assault rifles at the ready, yelling multiple orders as they did so. They rounded up all the interviewees against the wall and placed them in handcuffs before moving further into the building, where they found Erin and her employees interviewing a woman in what appeared to be torture room, seemingly to enhance the fear factor of the interview.
Pred eventually had a moment in private with Erin, where she stated to be extremely happy with the result and Pred's help. However, both Pred and Erin did end up getting scolded by Travis Tribble for getting other members of the police force involved without giving them proper information on the exact reason for the raid.
Rumours of a Girlfriend
On the morning of March 23rd, 2021, Pred received a phone call from an upset Erin as she informed Pred that she heard rumours about Pred going around calling Erin his girlfriend. Pred loudly informed her that he never told anyone such a thing, however Erin replied that she had received calls from multiple people saying otherwise. Erin even claimed that she caught Pred lurking around her apartment at night, but Pred strongly denied every single rumour. They ended up getting into a lengthy argument with both of them denying any sort of romantic feelings for one another, and stated that they meant nothing to eachother.
A while later, Pred ended up picking Erin out front of her apartment as he needed her help to get products from Frank Fritugo. As Pred and Erin drove around together, Erin genuinely asked him why he was claiming her as his girlfriend and asked if he was infatuated by her, however Pred fiercely denied being attracted to her, and instead claimed that Erin was the one that was infatuated by him, with Erin also denying his claims in return. Erin then pointed out that Pred didn't actually need her to get in contact with Frank, seemingly only getting her involved so he could spend time with her, with Pred not having much of an excuse to fight back with, he instead deflected by calling Erin a "stage five clinger". When they arrived at their destination, they ran into Dimitri Barkov who immediately referred to them as a couple of lovebirds, which only ended up furthering Erin's claims.
The rumours about Pred calling Erin his girlfriend turned out to have been spread by Dimitri himself, as Dimitri had been the target of both verbal and physical abuse from Pred since he was an employee of the burger shot, and that was his way of getting revenge on Pred.
Supporting a Nemesis
On March 23rd, 2021, Pred ended up in an extremely lengthy car chase with Erin, as she had made it a habit of trying to evade Pred at every opportunity as part of her rivalry with him. After Erin led Pred on a chase through the entirety of the city, the mountains, and the desert, he finally managed to catch her when her vehicle broke down due to excessive damages from the pursuit, at which point she immediately surrendered to him. As he placed her in handcuffs, another officer informed Pred that Erin's drivers license should be revoked on court orders by Judge Buck Stanton. Erin argued that Stanton's ruling was extremely unfair and biased, and when the other officer tried to place the blame on Erin, she got very direct with him and told him to stay out of it. In response, Pred told Erin to calm down against the other officer, and that Pred himself was also aware that Erin was being mistreated by Stanton, at which point Pred made the decision to take it upon himself to take Erin with him and go talk to Stanton. As Pred was placing Erin in the back of his cruiser, Travis Tribble warned Pred to keep it professional with Erin, whilst Pred was unsure what Tribble meant by his comment, Erin was quite entertained, as she had told Tribble earlier that she had sex with Pred during a police ridealong.
As they made their way to city hall, Pred called both a lawyer and Stanton to set up a meeting between the four of them, with Stanton gladly giving them the opportunity to plead their case. As they arrived, Pred gave Erin the benefit of the doubt and gave her the freedom to walk around by herself, trusting that she wouldn't flee as he was doing her a favour, though Pred did end up briefly putting a leash on her and tying her to a pole when he had to leave her from his sights, even though Erin stated that she'd rather have Pred hold her on the leash than being tied to a pole.
Before going into the meeting with Stanton, Pred advised Erin to have a reasonable conversation with Stanton and articulate her feelings in a civil manner, but Erin replied that she didn't trust Stanton to be reasonable, because Stanton treated her unfairly purely because he knew he could get away with it, and it was entertaining to him. During the meeting, Pred initially let both Erin and her lawyer have the opportunity to speak with Stanton whilst Pred quietly listened in, but when her lawyer seemingly failed to get the correct points across, and Erin was getting in her own way by insulting and arguing with Stanton, Pred stepped in. Pred explained to Stanton that treating Erin unfairly would turn her from a business woman to a common criminal, and even though her attitude towards Stanton was very disrespectful, Pred pleaded Stanton to still try and help her out as she was a victim of legal negligence rather than her own faults. Stanton ended up siding with Pred, and giving Erin another chance, stating that he never once had Pred vouch for anyone such as he did for Erin, and that was very impactful for Stanton's decision.
After getting Erin's drivers license reinstated, Pred finally took her down to MRPD to process her for the earlier pursuit, however on the way there Pred ended up scolding Erin for being disrespectful towards Stanton, as it made it harder for Pred to help her.
