New Vegas: Role-Play

Post  Rice on Fri Jan 28, 2011 3:08 pm

All we quiet..or so it seemed.

The smoke of the destroyed city rose high into the air where it was caught by the subtle breeze, that wafted it gently into the horizon stretching the carnage for miles. Vulpes' boots crunched heavily against the remnants of fallen buildings and burnt wood, the smell had that unmistakable tang of charred flesh to it that would set a normal persons stomach into a frenzy. But not them of course. His blues eyes narrowed dangerously as he glimpsed from side to side at the crucified Powder Gangers, still grovelling for mercy. "Disgusting," the man muttered before marching off towards his Frumentarii squadron. Nipton had been disheveled and all that it was now lay in ruins beneath the Legions feet, Vulpes watched with a satisfied smile as his men quickly began to raise the flags into the air to signal their victory.

"It looks like everything went according to plan?" The woman, who had until now merely watched as he did the work, spoke from the shadows. Her lithe form leaning lazily against the dilapidated shop, her arms casually crossed over her chest.

"Yes, it seems so," he gave her little attention and continued to stare at the red flags now whipping in the wind softly.

Natalia walked along the road to Nipton casually, ED-E chirping happily behind her. Nipton wasn't her destination, but she had hoped to stop there for a rest and to resupply before continuing on. However as she neared the town, she saw smoke rising from its buildings. Knowing that the smoke meant nothing good, she broke into a run and hurried along the road in order to see what was wrong. As she approached the gate, she almost collided with a man dressed in a Powder Ganger outfit.

"YEAH! Who won the lottery? I DID!" The man yelled happily at the bewildered Natalia. "Smell that air! Couldn't ya just drink it like BOOZE?!"

"A-are you feeling alright?" Natalia said uncertainly.

"Are you kidding me? Never felt better!" the man replied cheerfully.

"...Alright then. See you later, I guess"

The man ran off, and Natalia watched him disappear into the horizon before turning back to the town. As she entered, she let out a gasp; severed heads impaled on sticks had been placed by the entrance of the town, and she could see skeletons lying on top of burning piles of tyres. Slowly, she approached the town's main road and looked down it towards the town hall. She saw more impaled heads and burning corpses, along with people hanging on crosses, and felt herself swaying slowly on the spot.

"I don't feel so good, ED-E..." she said faintly. The robot beeped sadly.

The second Natalie had entered Nipton she had been watched by numerous people, it didn't take long for her presence to be notified to Vulpes. The man stared blankly at the scout and turned to Mary, who just shrugged as if she really didn't' care about the new comer. "Maybe she is just a traveller?" The woman offered up a small explanation, Vulpes tutted at the lack of elegance in her response and nodded his head as his men, they quickly sunk off into the shadows and began to subtly surround the new comer.

One person however seemed to have missed the memo about being sly in these situations, Kori watched Natalie from his post and rather eagerly leaped down in front of her. His hands flung out in an odd manner, as if he were about to strike a pose. "POW!" He practically yelled in her face before striking at the air, as if threatening her. Kori's boot caught on a loose piece of wreckage as he went towards her causing the man to quickly tumble forwards and face plant the ground, about as gracefully as a falling tree. He landed on the floor with a 'thud'.

Natalia let out a loud cry of shock as the man jumped out at her and shouted in her face, the backed away quickly as he tripped and fell at her feet. ED-E beeped angrily at him.

And I thought the other guy was weird, Natalia thought.

Kori laid on the floor, no he was sprawled out on the floor face first in the dusty rubble. He stayed there silent and seemingly unconscious until his right arm twitched a little signaling he was indeed awake. "Urgh," was the only sound he could make since he was pretty sure the ground had just broken his nose.

Men moved out from the shadows, surrounding Natalie and ED-D.

Vulpes stepped forwards, raising a hand for the men to lower their weapons. They didn't know who this girl was and from the looks of her it would seem Mary's theory of her being a simple merchant was far from the truth. The wolf-headed man stared at Natalie, his blacked out eyes invisible behind the shades, he made a thoughtful 'hm' noise before pressing his boot roughly onto Kori's head. The man yelped in pain but didn't pull away.

Natalia backed away from the men surrounding her until she backed into the wall of one of the town's few buildings still mostly intact. Instinctively, she placed her hand on the pistol at her hip, her eyes narrowing at the man in the wolf's skin hood.

Her reaction was flavoursome and sunk in well with Vulpes, he smirked briefly and suddenly stamped down hard on Kori's arm causing the man to flinch upwards and flail away. "I'm sorry Boss," the 'things' winy voice echoed in Vulpes' ear making him suddenly wish he had stamped on his head instead.

"Yes, you are," the leader of the Frumentarii flicked his wrist out and gestured for Kori to fall back in line. Kori eagerly obliged and fled behind the high up legionnaires, his head popping out from behind a man to stare at Natalie. Vulpes looked at Natalie, his eyes trailed from her face down to her had which rested on a pistol. "Don't worry, I won't have you lashed to a cross like the rest of these degenerates, it's useful you happened by."

Mary stepped out from the building Natalie had been leaning against, closing in on the girl. She reached out and tapped the woman on the shoulder, trying to make her jump.

How on earth can I be useful to bastards like you? Natalia thought, her eyes fixed on the man standing in front of her. ED-E hovered by her side. Suddenly, she felt someone tap her on the shoulder; she gasped, whirled around and tightened her grip on her pistol. When she turned, she came face to face with another woman.

Mary's ruby red lips smiled widely as she saw the panicked look on Natalie's face, she looked her up and down in an almost vulgar manner. "Yeah Vulpes, you're right," the dark haired woman stepped forward, hands on her slender hips. "She's that Courier I believe." As soon as she said this hushed whispers sounded through out the group.

"You think so?" Vulpes looked at Natalie, she did bear a striking resemblance to the famous Courier they had heard so much about. "I agree," and with a nod of the head Vulpes signalled for Mary to do the deed.

Before Natalie even knew what hit her Mary smacked her across the face so hard she was out cold. The robot seemed to buzz at her and looked ready to attack when he saw his mistress being hit, Mary quickly lunged forwards and grabbed the machine roughly. Ripping the control panel open and neutralising its mobility.

Vulpes looked down and Natalie, kicking her gently with his boot. "Pick her up, we're heading back to the Fort."

Natalia let out a soft groan as she regained consciousness. Her whole body ached, but the part of her face where the woman had smacked her hurt the most. After a few moments, she realised that she was lying on carpet. She opened her eyes. Some of her long hair had fallen over her face, but through it she could see that she was lying on a Persian rug. She could also see the boots of some men standing nearby. She let out a gasp, quickly got up into a kneeling position and looked around. She was in a tent, surrounded by men in Legion armor. Among them was the man in the wolf skin hood and the woman who had knocked her out. And directly in front of her, sitting on some sort of throne, was a bald, middle aged man who was looking at her intently.

Vulpes watched her carefully as she moved, his eyes looking for any suspicious signs. The woman had been stripped of all her weapons of course, that they had seen, but Vulpes was ever a cautious was and wasn't about to let his guard down. He stood to the right of Caesar's throne, stoic and upright, as if to attention, his entire body language composed and entirely unmoved. He didn't speak, he knew better than to speak, he wondered if this Courier knew as well as he did.

Mary didn't match the other men in their stern postures, she was leaning against the throne which in itself was a little odd, it suggested she was comfortable to do so without getting beaten half to death. She raised an eyebrow as Natalie began to come around, smirking and leaning down to whisper something in Caesar's ear. "She look's so breakable, this little kitty can't be the big bad Courier."

This is all I need, Natalia thought, fear rising in her chest. First I get shot in the head, and now this?

Once again, her hand went to her hip, but all she could feel was the fabric of her skirt. Her pistol had been taken off her. Without her pistol and ED-E by her side, she felt very vulnerable, a feeling that was not helped by the fact that some of the men were staring at her like she was a piece of meat.

Caesar stared at the young woman kneeling before him for a few more moments before speaking.

"Are you sure this is the "famous" courier? She seems too... timid."

"One way to find out," Mary walked forwards and bent down to Natalie, she reached out and grabbed a fistful of the woman's hair, yanking her upwards and thrusting her head back. Her grey eyes scanned the top of her head and face, looking for any signs she had been shot. There it was, a circular indentation near the girls temple, it still looked fresh in Mary's eyes, causing her to lift up her free hand and prod ruthlessly at the healing scar. A sickening smile spreading across her face as she prepared for the delicious noise.

Vulpes watched all, still silent, but to be honest rather in awe of the way Mary dealt with things. He watched for Natalie's reaction to such brutal
ity.

Natalia let out a cry of pain as the woman grabbed her hair, and let out a louder one as she poked her tender bullet wound.

"Why you little-!" she snarled, reaching up and attempting to scratch the woman's face.

Caesar watched to two women with an amused expression on his face.

Mary burst out laughing and pulled back to avoid being clawed. She shoved Natalie backwards by the head and did a little dance on the spot, like a child that had just got a new toy. "She is the Courier, no doubt about it, though," a brief pause, "She is shorter than I expected and less manly." Instant distaste went across her features as she realised Natalie was quite pretty. "Oh what shall we do, and by we I mean you of course my Lord," Mary knelt down gently and held out one hand, very dramatic in her way of talking and expressing herself.

Caesar tilted his head to one side and looked at Natalia again.

"Come a little closer," he said to her. She shuffled closer to him on her knees, her eyes wide.

"Now then," he said, leaning forward "the time is fast approaching when my Legion will assult the great dam and invade the west. What was inside that package you were delivering might just be the key to my victory."

"I don't have it anymore," Natalia said bluntly.

"I know you don't," Caesar said coldly, "but I know who does. His name is Benny, and he was the one who shot you."

Natalia looked surprised.

"He runs The Tops casino in Vegas. I want you to go to him, kill him, take back what he took from you and bring it to me."

"Alright, I'll do it," Natalia said softly, knowing that this was the perfect excuse for her to get her revenge.

Caesar smiled.

"Oh I'm liking the subservient attitude," Mary had a twinkle in her eye as she stared down upon Natalie, though she inwardly wondered how Caesar could trust her even to return. No doubt Vulpes would be dispatched to follow her and stalk her actions. She patted down her dress and flexed her fingers one by one, making them dance in front of her in an odd manner before letter her arms drop. "Mr.Benny is a bad man sweetness, you give him one for me, show him who's boss," she gave Natalie a little wink and turned to look at Vulpes who had apparently blanked out their little conversation.

In his eyes whatever women had to say was of little important, especially Mary, she just rambled like a lunatic half the time.

"Sweetness?" Natalia said, looking at Mary with a very confused look on her face.

"Someone put her in a tent for the night," said Caesar, waving Natalia away with his hand.

"Oi, didn't you hear him?" Mary barked at some guard near the front of the tent, he looked at Mary harshly when she snapped at him but didn't say anything to show he was angry.

Vulpes made a 'hmpf' noise and turned to Mary. "I believe he was asking you to take her too a tent," the look on Mary's face was priceless and it all but made Vulpes' night.

"Oh," the woman tucked some dark hair behind her ear and looked down at Natalie. "Well fine follow me then," she grudgingly grabbed Natalie's arm and hoisted her onto her feet, struggling a little to lift Natalie's heavier weight for a moment. "I suppose I'll keep you under surveillance till you're ready to go, though it's not like you'd have anywhere to run, geez how troublesome," she muttered as she walked Tali towards the exit, an arm still around Natalie's own drawing her along.

When they left Vulpes turned to Caesar. "My lord, if I might ask?" He paused just in case Caesar protested to him speaking, when he was met with silence he continued. "But who will you be sending with this Courier, chances are she might run?" He didn't doubt Caesar's plan but he knew the man would have already thought this all through and have suitables candidates to travel with her.

Natalia let out a little yelp as Mary grabbed her arm and dragged her out of the tent.

"Mary will, along with one of your Frumentarii," Caesar replied in response to Vulpes's question.

"Well you'll stay in my tent for now, which is just over this hill in the higher up settlement," they began to walk past other tends adjacent to Caesar's. She pointed to each in turn, "That's Vulpes', he's the leader of the Frumentarii, weirdo with the wolf helmet," her voice hitched a little with dislike as she mentioned his name. "That's Lucius', you'll meet him later maybe, he's one of the nicer guys here," her tone went lighter when she spoke of him. "And over there," her hand trailed the sky and pointed over a small ridge to a camp sight in the distance,"well, just don't go over there." She didn't say anything else, she was unsure if the Legate had already been dispatched or was still within the confines of his tent, either way she didn't need this little kitty spoiling the milk and angering him.

"I'm surprised you are sending that woman, considering her attention span," Vulpes sighed deeply. "But maybe sending a female along with provoke a sense of allegiance in the Courier." He tilted his head and thought. "And which of my men do you wish to send?"

Caesar leaned back on this throne for a moment, carefully making his decision.

"Korbin," he finally replied.

Meanwhile, Natalia looked mournfully at the tents Mary pointed out to her and nodded at what she was saying, unsure of what to say back.

Vulpes' expression nearly betrayed his inward reaction as Caesar announced who was to be sent, he turned towards his lord, giving him a submissive but still pretty confused look. "Korbin? Are you sure he is ready, I have seen his progress on missions and he is more than a little slow, excuse me for doubting you but, there are more suitable choices." He picked his words very carefully.

Mary pulled the flap back to her tent, it was separated into two rooms, one acting as her work place, which was filled with many medical supplies. The other her place of living, a comfortable bed with burgundy sheets, and a giant closest that even had clothes and shoes piled against it. In the far of the tent a rather small vanity table could be seen, where she spent most of her time if she was honest. "This is my humble abode."

"Of course I am sure!" Caesar snapped, looking at Vulpes angrily. "Now go and tell him of his new assignment."

Natalia stared in awe at Mary's wardrobe and vanity table, resisting the urge to dive in and touch everything.

Mary saw Natalie's expression and grinned. "Do you, like it?" She felt her stomach twist into knots, the one down side of being the only proper woman in the Legion, since the slaves obviously didn't count, was that she was surrounded by men who didn't appreciate the effort it took to be beautiful. "Well, if you're going to The Strip you'll need to doll up else you'll stick out like a sore thumb," Mary patted her chest and smiled. "I guess it falls onto my perfect shoulders to make you look irresistible."

Vulpes instantly cringed and bowed his head out of respect. "As you command," he left the tent, sighing deeply and bracing himself for having to talk to Kori.

"OH MY GOD MARY!" An all to loud voice screamed, a figure entered the tent where Mary and Natalie stood and suddenly lunged over at them, giddy and smiley. Kori's face lite up when he saw Natalie. "Is this the new girl?" He sung and stared at her, invading her personal space and staring Tali right in the eyes, so much so their noses almost touched.
