"It's about time you got here, I didn't think you were gonna show."
"Seriously? When have I ever bailed on you?"
"Remember that night I got into a fight with that raider in the outskirt bar?"
"I didn't tell you to call him out for 'Giving you the stink eye'."
"Yeah whatever. So, are you ready for this? I mean I'm not sure what exactly to expect with these people, I've never dealt with them."
"Why exactly are you dealing with them?"
"About a month ago, Sazz personally came in here. He told me that he wanted me to order something for him from a small group of specialty traders. When I asked why, he said that if I knew what was good for me I'd shut my yap and do what he asked."
"As long as it pays well, I don't need to know anything."
I walk around the store as Thor writes down the info for my trip. Walking past one of the counters I see a ring siting in a box on a shelf.
"Hey what kind of ring is this?"
"That's a silver ring with an emerald set in it. Some traveler came in here and pawned it. Hahaha, I gave the guy 50 caps. It's easily worth 300, stupid travelers."
"Yeah, stupid travelers."
Thinking that it is exactly what Frank was asking for, I reached out and snatched the ring of the shelf, quickly sticking it in my jackets pocket. It's gonna be a fun day when he realizes this baby is gone. It's for a good cause, right?
"So are the directions written up yet" I ask hoping to get out of there as fast as possible.
"Yeah, here they are. It should take about three days to walk, so I have prepeared a bag of the essentials: 6 canteens, a rollout bed, some fire starter, and just in case, I threw in a little firepower."
"O.K. then, I'll see you in a week"
"Hey, Something isn't right about this trip. Be careful Blane."
"Aren't I always?"
