=I cover my mouth as I chew=

I've been down there a few times.

=I swallow=

Hmm.

I finish the meal and stand up, adjusting the rifle strap. I nod goodbye to Strom and walk away towards the third floor. I was never really struck on Strom. He acted nice enough but one could never trust anyone these days. I stopped to take a drink from one of the water fountains. Water had become free to everyone ever since that Wanderer purified it.

=Once i was sure the dead bandits had no buddies, I performed a time honored tradition of the wasteland: raid the dead. I checked their pockets, their bags, etc. What I found was encouraging: A few pieces of food, some bullets that would work with my pistol though they had no gun themselves. The clothes they wore were too torn to be of much use as far as wearing, though I tore off pieces in case I needed an impromptu bandage. A strange thing though: they were carrying, bottle caps. A lot of bottle caps=

What the hell, why?

I stood up, and decided I could do with getting some more energy cells. I began to walk over to the Ammo market.

=She waited crawling like a moth on its death bed, the dog hadn't even noticed her movement, she was in reach... Just a jab and...=

ArghHgahgHgh!

=The dog whined in great pain as the wanders knife pierced its mangy skin, black puss and strangely viscus blood dribbled from the wound=
=She struck again with great force, more whining took place and the dog collapsed on it's front, she finished it off with a kick from her tufted boot=

Sorry pal... Better you then me.

=She stared at the dog so calmly asleep, its blood littered the road like all the dust and bones before it, she pondered what this dog had done=
=How many had it killed? How long had it been here? These were hopeless questions, after another nudge against the dog she wandered back to her bag=

Now...for ammunition

=I go to Flak and Shapnels=

What do we have for ammunition today, my man?

Flak: Let's see, I have 300 rounds of .45 ACP, 100 rounds of .300 Win Mag, 250 rounds 7.62mm NATO and 150 rounds of 4.6 H&K.

Well, I'll take 50 rounds of .45 ACP, 30 rounds of .300 Win Mag, 50 rounds of 7.62mm NATO and 50 rounds of 4.6 H&K. Looking to top up my stores back home.

Flak: that's 25 caps for all of them.

Being generous today, eh Flak?

Flak: Yeah, yeah. So is it a deal.

Its a deal, Flak.

=I hand him 25 caps, and he hand me my ammo=

Flak: There you are, my man. All the ammo you asked for.

Thank you very much.

Half way on my way to the Ammo stall, I decided that I wasn't going to need to get more ammo, and that I should make up my mind for once.

There, finally the fucking door.

He tugged at the door, opening it and peered out. His helmet taking the overwhelming brightness of the sun.

"Oh, at least the weathers nice"

He equipped his AK47 and aimed down the sights, just getting the feel for it again. Marvelous. He loaded up the map of the surrounding area. Setting his GPS's destination for River City. It would not take long, it was only a short walk.

=i was resting up on top of the Museum of Technology. I was on a version of leave, but I was still needed to defend the area, should anything come up. So I was stretched out with my spotter's scope down, my Intervention ready, and a protein bar in my hand. Life of a Sniper is hard, but relaxing. You get to lay down in one place for several hours, enjoy the sun and the sights, and then shoot at tiny little dots that we're trying to kill you. It was peaceful, mostly. I nibbled on the bar and did another sweep for any bandits or similar. I didn't see anyone, just the usuals. I was getting bored, but that's when I started to hum my favorite song to myself, so I would stay focused=

=With no destination in mind, I moved farther from the road, and further into the wastes. from what I could tell, I was heading South, maybe South East. Wasn't sure what I'd find, but I felt that it was better to stick to my rule: Always keep moving=

I decided to head outside, for some fresh air. Once I got outside, and I leaned against the railings. From here, it felt like you could see so much. So much of this messed up world...

=I walked into the Marketplace and up to the weapon seller=
"How much for all these?" I asked, dropping a few guns and some ammo on the counter.
"200 caps for the lot." He answered
"200? Is that all? What happens when I come across a rare weapon, I might be able to get a better price elsewhere..."
"Fine, 250! I know what you wanderers find out there can be pretty valuable..." He exclaimed.
"Pleasure dealing with you" I said with a wolfish grin before dropping the caps into a small bag.

Realising how long the walk was going to be I turned on my modified pip-boy that my parents once held so I could listen to the radio. I took it out of my pack but stopped to look at it. It was the only thing I had to remember my parents by. I remember how big it was before I took out most of its wiring and bulk. Now what stood in front of me was a dulled down version. It had all of the essential; A map, A radio receiver, the light, and the geiger counter. The inventory tracking and status screen was gone. I didn't need those. The fact that it was much smaller that the original was good. It was now the size of a thick watch on my wrist instead of a forearm apparel. I turned on the radio and listened to GNR and started to whistle to tune to Anything Goes.

In olden days a glimpse of stocking was looked on as something shocking. But now God knows! Anything goes!

My step started to take on the rythme of the song. I continues on my way home.

=The wanders tired boots and lacking water supply were taking their toll, she needed food, she needed rest, she needed water.=

"forty caps"

=I turned and looked up north a ways. I saw a man I hadn't seen before. He had some US weaponry on him, that much I could see from my scope, but I couldn't make out his face or other features. He seemed to be in a hurry, so I looked behind him, but saw nothing chasing him. I was tempted to fire a warning shot at him, but decided against it. He seemed worse for wear, not like some of the bandits that come around here. I lost him behind a tree, but found him again after a moment=

I had finally reached my home of Springvale.

Home sweet home.

I walked up to my shack and walked around to the back. I walked up to a sewer grate and picked it up. I traversed down the ladder to the underground.

My secret entrance. Heh.

Not to long ago I had found this place while scavenging Springvale. Inside the house there was a cellar door that lead to the underground tunnel I entered. I figured this was a good place to settle down at. I reinforced the doors and windows with wood, and covered the outside of the house with junk so no one could enter unless they knew where the underground entrance was at. In the beginning there was an infestation of radroaches in the tunnel but they are long gone.

But it still smells down here.

I opened the security door that led to the cellar. I walked up the stairs and opened the door to my house.

Home...How I missed you.

I walked to my bedroom and turned on the radio. Allegro Ma Non Troppo was playing. How I loved Agatha's station when I wanted to relax. The soothing sounds of the violin led me into sleep.

=I exit the door to be greeted by one of the guards=

"Strom. I saw you sleepin during your shift. Do we have a problem?"

No, sir. Just figured that I could do nothing but wander the area. Might as well sleep.

"Dont do it again, Strom."

Yeah, yeah, yeah.

=I continue walking. I press a couple of buttons and the bridge shoots out. Connecting to the platform=
=I head off for Megaton=

=The city was quiet, and I didn't see anyone, yet. But that didn't mean someone or something didn't see me. From the shadows of an alley, a pair of dogs appeared, snarls bubbling from their throats, and drool dripping from their jaws, fangs bared=
Oh boy. Uh, nice doggie, good doggies, stay.

=They started running at me=

Oh, come on!
=I turned, and ran. Don't look at me like that. When people charge at you, you attack. When dogs charge at you, your primal instinct kick in, and you hightail it=

=i watched the new guy run from some dogs. I couldn't blame him, some dogs have been altered by their owners, given drugs and stuff to make them stronger and faster, but more violent. I couldn't let him get taken down by those things, even if they weren't altered. I swung my rifle around and checked the range from my spotter's scope and adjusted my my rifle to compensate. If he kept running in the same direction, I'd be able to hit the dogs, one at a time. I took a deep breath, and let it out slowly, and squeezed the trigger. I couldn't see the shot, but I hoped I was on track. I racked the bolt before the shot hit, and waited to see the result=

=I took a deep breath in before I started walking again=
=I left my weapons in their holster and sling. I knew how to handle myself with just my fists=

=I raise up my arm and turn on my old pipboy. It was an old clunker but it did give me access to the radio. So I wsnt always lonely. I switched it to Galaxy News Radio. A favourite song of mine was just starting to play. I began to hum along with it=

AAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
=I just ran, okay, I just fucking ran. The dogs were closing faster than I could draw my gun and shoot, so my only hope was a bus. No sooner did i see the bus though, than a shot rang out, and there was yelp of pain from a dog, and a wet, meaty sound. I chanced a glance behind me: one of the dogs was dead, and it's partner had stopped, the sudden death distracting it=
What the hell?

=I drew my pistol, and shot the dog in the head=

Bad dog!

Don't worry, you'll be fine. I'm not who you think I am.

I know I'll regret this sooner or later...but here and now only matters at this point

My name's James. You can trust me that I mean you no harm.

I hadn't found a buyer for the chems I'd found, but I'd sold the raider's gear. As I walked back to the entrance, I was stopped by a resident.
"H-hey there, You got some jet on you? I'll buy."
I hesitated for a moment, hell I wasn't even sure it was legal here to sell this guy chems.
"Yeah I got some jet." I said quietly "150 caps."
The person in front of me nodded and reached for something I assumed to be caps. When he drew a 10mm pistol I was a little shocked. When he fired it I was more than shocked.
Luckily he fired at my chest, my armour stopped the bullets. I kicked him between the legs and drew my rifle putting it against his head.

=I took a nearby piece of glass and reflected the light at the man a few times, trying to get his attention. I hoped he saw it, as I wasn't going to do it again. I put the glass down and watched him through the scope=

Ugh....

=I was so focused on the corpse of the dog, that I barely noticed a flash of light shining into my eyes. I spun, pistol still drawn, and looked around. No one else was nearby, and I couldn't see any form of shining light, short of the sun=
Looks like I've got a guardian angel now. Great.

=I walked over to the dogs, and grotesque as it was, began to skin them, using the knife in my pocket. Hey, I needed the meat=

That isn't unusual, its normal to hear such things out here

Are you okay there?

=i took out my protein bar and nibbled a bit more. Eat often, but little at a time, best way to fight off hunger. I watched the man start skinning the dogs. I broke off from looking and started scanning the area again. I didn't like to watch animals get killed. I would eat them all the same, but not watch the kill. If you eat it, you don't watch it die=

=So, as I'm skinning the dogs, and tearing off chunks of meat (appetizing, isn't it?) one of the grosser things I had seen, happened. I accidently penetrated the stomach of one of the dogs, and the contents came spilling out, and there was a smell of sewage from the contents. Okay, eww=

Yeah, that's enough meat for me.

=Well he let her take it, she stood up leaning against the pillar she napped on. She nods at him, still slightly untrusting=

Thanks...

Not a problem. I just hate to see someone suffer out here in the wastes.

=I tear off a sheet of cloth and tie it around her left eye=

That should help, at least temporarily. Let's see if we can't find you a doctor.
