Mia had never played Fallout...
Tue Sep 1, 2015 20:49

...although she'd heard of it. Shooter game, wasn't it?

"You can tag along," she said. The former ghoul might be useful. Maybe. His speech patterns were already getting on her nerves, though...

"So, what happened?" she prodded the two younger agents. She began walking down the hallway; hopefully that would make them start talking to distract themselves on the way to Medical.

    "I had no idea anyone could do that," he said. "I'm Sax. That's Day," he motioned at his partner. "I was about to say, you look like the weirdest Fallout ghoul I've ever seen."

                  Even the possibility of knowing what had happened seemed unimportant in the rush of anger-driven, slightly glittery adrenaline that flooded her body. No one insulted her intelligence like that. "Do... more

                            Day stared in disbelief as the current-gungan came towards them. She had Sax's dagger strapped to her leg, but using it on a fellow agent even in self defense seemed like an amazingly bad idea. "Hey, ... more
