Liam pulled up the bike in front of the settlment and waited to get in “Hey up there you mind letting a person in some time” he shouted up at the guards men
“Yer one sec just let us open her up” a rather burly guard with sunglasses shouted back.
Pushing the bike to one side Liam took off his biking gear leaving it with the bike putting on his back pack and storing his shotgun in the back. He then approched a Guard this one with a large flamethrower “hi there were can i buy supplys from” Ther guard jerked his hed back over his shoulder “Monroes is best he wont screw you over and he’ll give you a fair price. Thanking the guard Liam moved on.
”Hi there” he said to the shop owner “I need to trade some supplys and i here your were to go”
The shop keeper looked sceptical “what is it you want to trade” he asked. Liam began to open his pack and pull out the cans of food. “hhhhmm Ill give you 200 grams of copper and this knife for them dont try and haggle it doesnt work thats my final offer”
“thats fine” replied Liam “but i cant survive on that for long do you know if any one has any work.”
“As a matter of fact i do” The shop keeper answered “a strange woman came into town the other day trying to recruite people to go on a expedition or something”. Whilst the shop keeper was talking Liam was stuffing his new possesions into his pockets
Thanking the Shop keeper he walked out .
Liam walked over to the bar across the road figuring this was probably a descent place to look for the woman as any.
The bar was a dark dinge place with people huddled over their drinks and a bar man with one leg. Spoting a woman in the corner Liam began to walk over to her.
”Are you the person thats looking for people to go on your expedition because im looking for a job my name is Liam” Liam asked her.
The woman replied “yes I am the person my name is Jessica, the job is to escort me to a location out in the waste from there we will join up with some other people and from there we wil travel to another location the pay is 500g of silver if you die no one else gets to collect your pay is that all ok?”
“thats fine” Liam said trying to sound proffesional “but whats with all the secerecy I mean....” He was cut off by a gun shot.
The sound made both their heads turn around looking out of the window.
Suddenly a hail of shots came down the street making most of the bars patrons throw them selves to the ground and the bar keeper pull a rifle from under the bar.
Outside was chaos 4 men had just attacked the front of the settlement gunning don the guards and any bystanders that got in the way.
Liam ran across the street from the bar hopeing to find cover but not before one of the attackers saw him and started to fire him.
Breathing heavley he slid into cover, risking a look he saw the soldiers advancing up the street and a man reloading the RPG
Jessica popped out from cover now with a las pistol in her hand and cooly took out one of the soldiers with a quick three shot burst. Making use of the distraction liam ran further up the street.
The rpg fired forcing Jessica to run to avoid being blown to bits. Liam covered her firing both barrels at the now advancing soldiers
He began to run as Jessica popped out gain this time gunning down the man with the RPG “got him” she said to herself. Meanwhile Liam had begun to run further down the street.
