All There Is To It
DeAngelo glances at each of the mercenaries and, satisfied that they’ve come to an agreement, nods and plucks the cigar from his mouth.
“Big Norm will be expecting you tomorrow morning, just before sunrise. Be sure you’re on time – if there’s anyone less patient then me, it’s Norman.” DeAngelo grins and stuffs the burning stogie into a make-shift ashtray fashioned from the cranial bone of some unfortunate animal. “You can find his yard on the eastern outskirts of The Den, where the wall meets the cliffside.”
DeAngelo pauses to ensure that everything has sunk in before waving over a rather burly looking man in scrap armor. “Trig, see these fine people to the door. I think we’re all set here. Oh…and get me my telecom. I need to make a phone call.”
With that, the tall man in tattered metal armor escorts the three mercenaries to the door.
You received a job from DeAngelo. The next step is to get some rest, and report to Big Norm’s motor yard the following day before dawn. If anyone has any questions for DeAngelo, now is the time to ask them.
A Change of Heart
Mason looks to his Telecom for answers. As he dials out, the process is interupted by an irritatingly loud, digital tone and a flashing yellow light. An incoming call…
Mason taps on the touch-screen button for ‘Answer’.
“Mr. Meth.” he says simply.
“Mason…I’ve changed my mind. I’ve got some work you might be interested in. It might not be your cup of tea, but at least you might be able to make some money. What do you say?” the gnarled, raspy voice of DeAngelo asks.
After offering DeAngelo some dope, he turned you down. But he’s now calling to see if you’re interested in a bit of work. It might not be a bad idea to diversify your resume.
