  1. Last week
  2. Violet dragged herself back to the spot she'd been in before, setting her gun aside and sitting back down listening to the world around them. She heard, from upstairs, the muttering of Red trying to get help for them, which meant he may have found a working radio, which was a relief. Setting her head back against the wall she closed her eyes to rest while she waited for the cavalry. @Dragon
  3. Earlier
  4. Once he'd gotten the radio working, Red settled to start sending the distress call. He tried the frequencies Oberon used first - though he knew from the start that he was unlikely to get an answer. They didn't have the resources for a surface outpost. One of his people would have to be above ground with a handheld device. When that almost inevitably failed, he started skimming through the frequencies the device could manage. If nothing else, he could contact the Spartans. They were usually willing to spare aid where they could - and being holed up in one of their safe houses meant it was more likely that they'd be willing to send a man to them, Unfortunately, the problem with a radio system was that anyone else who had one could also listen in. Red wasn't really taking that into consideration at the moment, though. He was more concerned with getting his wife off the surface. @Morrigan
  5. Violet breathed slowly too aware of how loud she sounded in the moment even though in reality she wasn't being all that loud. She had her rifle at a loose ready as she moved toward the sounds. As she got closer to the sound it seemed to be a child playing in the hall drawing on the wall and it faded quickly. She blinked and rubbed her eyes. She had never seen so many ghosts in one trip to the surface and it was terrifying. She was sure they were trying to tell her something, or trying to kill her, but why were they chasing her? She looked at the wall where the child had been to see an extremely faded marker image of a train and people inside. She smiled at the image but didn't quite put it together yet. Instead she moved to go back to where Red had left her. @Dragon
  6. The wind was still howling around the building. Somewhere far in the distance it sounded as though a watchman was howling - Red couldn't tell. All he knew was that the immediate surroundings were still uncomfortably quiet. ' Unaware of what was going on below, he continued his search through the small apartment until, finally, he found what he'd been hoping for. A com radio hidden in the back of a cabinet - about as well away from the elements as possible. Initially he held his breath as he pulled it out. Then it switched on. "Fuck yes," Red muttered. Maybe they would get out of this after all. @Morrigan
  7. Violet pushed herself up and started to follow the sounds of where the laughter came from. Wary to put her feet on the ground because last that that's how she fell and cut her leg open. @Dragon
  8. Minutes passed and still nothing. Eventually Red gave up, deciding to come back and check later. In the meantime he started rummaging through the storage spaces in the room. It was a Spartan safe house - maybe there was a radio in there somewhere. @Morrigan
  9. As Violet sat there she closed her eyes but as soon as she did she felt a creeping cold feeling come up her spine and snapped them open to look around only to see nothing but the creeping feeling didn't fade as she reached for her rifle to make sure it would fire. She breathed out and she could see her breath in front of her. She heard child's laughter off to the left and she looked. It was like back in the building. Like it was trying to tell her something but she didn't know what or how to figure it out. @Dragon
  10. The building made for a sturdy shelter, all things considered. It was difficult to get a view out of, though, with the windows heavily boarded. Red kept looking around, though. He knew there was no way the Spartans didn't have some sort of vantage point in the place. After a few minutes, he found a door that when opened revealed a narrow stair case. Red cautiously made his way up, finding himself up in a small apartment where the shop owner must have lived before the war. He'd been right about the Spartans having a vantage point. This was the only space so far where the windows weren't fully boarded up, and there was one facing each direction. Red picked up the beaten set of binoculars resting on the window sill as he peered out over the streets. There was moisture inside one of the lenses, so it wasn't the best improvement - but still better than plain eye sight. It did make him wish he'd thought to bring a rifle scope along, though. He still wasn't catching sight of anything, though. Made him wonder if whatever Violet sensed trailing them was even a physical entity at all. @Morrigan
  11. Violet could really relax but the alcohol Red had given her certainly helped by making her a bit heady, it also distracted her from the stinging of her leg. She watched as he walked further into the building. @Dragon
  12. Red set her rifle against the wall beside her, then grabbed his own as he stood. He left the room quietly, picking a little more carefully through the building. He didn't particularly want to move back out into the streets again, so for now he tried to see what he could from inside. Maybe finally catch a glimpse of what had been stalking Violet. @Morrigan
  13. Violet nodded as she settled. "Okay," she agreed. @Dragon
  14. "Nothing you won't survive. Just try to relax, I'm going to go have a look around." @Morrigan
  15. "It's pretty bad baby," she said to him. @Dragon
  16. Red finished a few minutes later. He tied off the threading and cut the needle free, pausing to run the metal through the flame of his lighter again. "Could've been worse," he murmured as he started to bandage over it again. . @Morrigan
  17. Violet simply grumphed at him a few times as she took another swig from Red's flask. @Dragon
  18. "Sorry," Red muttered a quick apology, pausing until she stilled again. He continued a little more slowly. Fortunately he was nearing the end of the task. @Morrigan
  19. "Maybe... ouch. fucking hell," she said as she cringed the thread pulling a little more than it should have. "Fuck." @Dragon
  20. "Like I said, none of you women can let go of a grudge." @Morrigan
  21. "I'm allowed to be a little bit bitter." @Dragon
  22. "Also apparently why you enjoy shoving needles through me," he grinned as he circled back around to the original tease. @Morrigan
  23. Violet hummed as she started to relax. "Baby. That's why I love you." @Dragon
  24. "Yeah, well, at least I got my shit together in the end." @Morrigan
  25. "Oh god, I wish that were true. Never would have gotten our divorce if it were." @Dragon
  26. "I am and have always been a perfect gentleman," he retorted - though he barely managed to do so in an even voice. @Morrigan
  27. "You are such an ass. Of course you know." @Dragon
