"We just need to get to the base.Frank said with anger (I know I have planned this.
"Alright," said Jared still puzzled by Frank's reaction to the man. He stood for a second, then turned to catch up to Frank who was walking away quickly.
The rest of the way no one muted a single sound they just walked awkwardly side by side.They came to a small pile of rubble over looking a crater with a small rusty metal makeshift hut down in the center.A few mutants patrolled the perimeter."It looks like they are few in numbers over wise more would be on gurd up here but that hut is a top of an old army bunker tunnel.Used to scav here ..."frank was stop by violent cough followed by a splat of dark red blood.
"Woh you okay?" Jared asked. "I think we should get you back to the camp."
"I'm fine.You just make some notes and we will leave."
Jared started surveying the area and scribbled down some notes.
"You said there's an old bunker over there. How many of these things would you say it could house?"
"Not sure it was a good twenty years ago I was here but judging by the lack of gurds up top and our encounters with them befor I would say they are fractured and few in numbers."
Wyatt watched the others go. He turned to the mayor, and said, "Well we should get the militia together. Who are the best with firearms in this town? I mean outside of the town guards."
The mayor thought for a second and then replied, "I know some people, but they'll need some convincing, especially now that one of those mutants followed you. The doctor was very well liked in this community. For the meantime, why don't you help some of my men move the body?"
Wyatt nodded and picked up Dr Lee's body with the help of another man, and placed it on an operating table. The guard said, "Stay here, I'll go get some shovels."
He left, and Wyatt stood awkwardly by the corpse, aware that several people were staring at him, some of their eyes filled with hatred.
Jared took some more time surveying the mutants and taking notes.
"Okay, I think we've got a fair amount of info. We should get going."
With a slight cough he agreed and they bothe set off back to town.
The walk back to the town was just as awkward as when the duo came from it. Frank didn't look well, that was apparent. However, the man they had encountered along the way, and Frank's reaction to him still bothered Jared.
As they entered the town frank said that he needed to lie down and went to the inn leaving Jared to share the intel.
Jared set off to look for Wyatt and the mayor. As he walked through the town, he got funny looks. But, he understood why. They had led mutants here and it led to the death of a respected citizen.
As he walked he saw Wyatt and another man carrying off a limp body. It must be Dr. Lee, Jared figured, then he hurried to catch up.
Wyatt noticed Jared jogging to catch up with them. He nodded to acknowledge him.
"What did you find out?"
The other man looked at Jared with a cold gaze." Yeah.What did ya fin out ?" The man was young and brash.He wore scruffy farm cloths and his hair was black and messy.His white skin was tanned from a childhood of hard work under the unforgiving suns gaze.
Jared looked over at the other man, suprised by his curiosity."Well, it's everyone's business I suppose," he said before addressing the both of them. "They're holed up in an old bunker a few miles outside of town. The old man seemed pretty sure there shouldn't be too many of them. But... I'm not sure how much more of this he could handle." (OOC: We appreciate the positive feedback arnoldyz but if you could please post them in the ooc thread. We usually try to keep these ones with just the story.)
I"Well that old bastard better man up cause I ain't goin on no mission with no ol lazy ass!"Exclaimed the young man.
Jared had to restrain himself from lashing out at the stranger. Besides, they were guests here. "Well maybe you don't have to. You probably know way more people here than we do, so maybe you shoul recruit."
The mayor walked close to them."You should show respect towards your elders. James." "Whatever."James replied "Put her down hear an go get ready.Sorry about him."The mayor said. He knelt down besides Dr.Lee."Poor gal."
"We're sorry for your loss, we never meant for this to happen. But if we want to avoid any more casualties, we should form a militia
