Metro: Beyond

He covers up his lies with lies.....


Recommended Posts

The relationship would be superficial at first but as Seth and Alice started to get to know one another, or what they thought was one another, they started to get closer. They were both into monster movies and loved being nostalgic over things like tremors and howl. It made not kissing him harder and eventually she did start to kiss him properly.

She wouldn't admit it but she was falling for him.... until she heard that he was Reich. She had been out early as he said he'd be back around then. So she was half waiting for him and half fishing for information for him when she saw him arrive and overheard the conversation.

It made her heart thump in her chest so loudly she couldn't hear anything else because she stumbled away to get away from him. Fear and paranoia taking over as she left him there.

His routine passing through Kievskaya had become more than that over time. Not just a stop for information, but because he was slowly becoming more and more attached to the woman he'd made his arrangement with. With time he saw her as a person and not just a whore, or a source of gossip. 

He didn't notice that she was present as he presented his passport to the Hanza guards. They made their comments about the Reich and recent rumors. Seth took it all as much in stride as he could. He didn't dare express himself, but he shared a view closer to their own. He wasn't Reich by choice. 

When he finally got through the check Seth headed off to the usual locations where he knew to find Alice. But she was strangely absent. After about a half hour of searching he grew concerned and went off to ask about where she might be.

"I saw her go back to her place," one of the men shrugged. "Perhaps tired from all of the sex," another one said in a condescending tone. "I mean could you blame her? She doesn't have any other way to get bullets. I know this guy knows. He visits her regularly eh," he said to Seth. "You want to go see her?"

Seth licked his lips briefly. He was under no illusion that Alice had begun to see him alone. But all the same he bristled inwardly upon hearing their exchange, "If you don't mind," he shrugged. By then he was a regular customer when passing through. Most of the guards knew him by sight.

He didn't miss the guard's expression. Seth side eyed him as he moved forward, though he refrained from engaging. Instead he focused on getting to his destination, "Hey, Alice?" he called out as he approached her tent, "Are you there?"

Seth shouldered his rifle, but drew his side arm as he came in - holding it in against his chest but ready to be used if necessary. But once he was in he saw only her. No signs of anyone else or a threat. He slowly moved to holster the gun at that point. 

"You want to tell me whats going on?"
