December 5th, 2019
A man, sat down against a table in his bedroom, and started up the laptop that was located in front of him. Outside the window, is a blacked out 2009 Gavin Bayview Police Interceptor, equipped with a bullbar and modified wheels.
He the puts a cup of coffee onto the table itself, while he turns on his laptop. Besides him there’s a picture of a modified Ursula R1, which was infamously known to be involved in several illegal street races before it’s disappearance in 2012 after a street race in Horizon Bay. Little was known about the vehicle’s mods and it’s current location.
The laptop has finally started up. He then opened a word processor program and started typing a new document with it.
“Summer, 2012. Horizon Bay. The Great Race. 6 racers and a fuckton of cops were involved that day. Lots of tires were shredded. Lots of damage has caused. Chaos were on the highest in the city. There’s no way to hide. And a single misstep, means that you’re gonna be in prison, and spend the rest of your life waiting for nothing. Lots of racers were arrested. But I’m not sure I’m the only lucky one on the race.”
"Years of mafia life have told me something about the world. You can’t trust anyone in the world of crime. Just like the 21st day of last month that cyka “Death Eye”, who didn’t give me the money after he promised to do so if the raid is successful. And I did all of the driving. Like, seriously. What I wanted to get a contribution for them, but I always ended up with nothing to spare. I mean, Fuck them. Those cykas thought they are the rulers of the world? No way. The underdogs will rise against them.
“And just yeah, back to the showdown. I’m not sure whose in the race, at all. It’s has happened since like years ago. But…”
He proceeded to drank the coffee from the cup. The coffee is still warm, despite the night is cold. But he stopped typing for a while. The guy then went to the kitchen alongside with his cup of coffee.
He then proceeded to turn on his television. At that time, the television was reporting about some news.
NEWS: “A street racer gang was dissolved by the Horizon Bay Police Department last week after…”
Suddently, he was reminding back to the days of his illegal street racing career, back in 2012.
6th June 2012, San Diego
Some garage in an yet unknown location
CAR RADIO: In other news. Street racers have been arrested in La Mesa at 10 PM yesterday. San Diego Police Force has stated that the racers are driving illegally imported and modified vehicles…
A green Ursula R1 entered the garage. Inside the car, a 30-ish year old man whose real name yet to be unknown (let’s call him “anon”) parked his car in his hideout’s garage located somewhere in the backstreets of San Diego. The car is heavily modified and has an aggressive bodykit to pair the car. Of course, he’s The Showdown King, which is infamously known for it’s involvement on several street races and serious police chases.
At the same time, he’s talking with his phone. A female voice can be heard on his phone, possibly is his client or someone else.
UNKNOWN VOICE: Reminder, in the city of Horizon Bay, California, at this Saturday, Showdown time. I’ll call you back later.
ANON: I got your back. See ya.
ANON: (in mind) The race is just weeks away, and I’ll see what will happen next. But of course, this baby beats every racer known to man. Or should I need some tuning? Probably.
He proceeds to get out of his car, got some tools and start tuning his car for the race. Nobody know’s what’s inside the car, except for the fact that it’s heavily modified and contains a turbocharged V8 under the hood.
But yeah, this green car is has a pretty shady history by itself. Some rumors said that the car is illegally shipped from Germany by anon himself, while other said that the car is in fact a stolen vehicle. But beyond the forged license plates, the road-unsafe tuning and probably the fact that the car is involved in criminal activities, nobody would know what the hell it’s came from.
6th June 2012, Horizon Bay
Parking Lot, Opal Street
This is San Francisco obviously but whatever, I’ll just use this pic because Horizon Bay doesn’t exist IRL.
Since it’s pretty late when Anon came, there’s barely any vehicles on the parking lot, and no other people was in there other than a sleeping security guard which slept in a small hut.
The Showdown King drove a used Saminda pickup truck, and arrived the parking lot. He then stopped the car and immediately wait for a dealer to come.
ANON: turns on his burner phone and tries to call the dealer
But not long later a guy drove a old car and came to the parking lot. That man, infact, is the dealer anon mentioned. The dealer is known for selling pretty much anything illegal. Shortly after the man came out of his
DEALER: Here’s the secret weapon you wanted. gives some mysterious package to The Showdown King I know you don’t want any racers to take over your place, and with that you could beat them whatever you wanted.
ANON: Sure. takes the package and left
The Showdown King has left the parking lot soon after. And not even 1 minute on the Saminda pickup is gone from the parking lot.
7th June 2012, Horizon Bay
This is Los Angeles, not Horizon Bay.
The Coast Residences, Saint Weston Street, Oliver District
The person returned to a hideout located in The Coast Residences, a small apartment complex located in the suburbs of Oliver District. Meanwhile, just happened somewhere he saw a blue 1985 Ursula F3 with a V8 in it. That’s Andrei Ivanov, another well known street racer from Russia.
ANDREI: (in Russian) Hey, comrade! Wanna have some kvass or what? Or…
ANON: (in Russian) Shut up you cyka. I don’t think I need a bottle of kvass right now.
ANDREI: (In Russian) Okay. How’s the preparation for the race, comrade?
ANON: (In Russian) Doing it. I got a special weapon to beat them tho. Not going to tell anyone here. Besides can you just…
ANDREI: (In Russian) Okay. Fine. Not gonna bother you. I’m leaving soon, see ya.
Andrei entered his car and left. Several minutes later, The Showdown King himself returned to his hideout and wait for more info.
(in the hideout)
ANON: Okay. Showdown@2012. I’m sure I’ll win again. Maybe. Unless someone got anything better.
