Looking for someone a bit more grounded than the last guy didn’t get me far.
This guy’s mind doesn’t work as hard as the previous, but less deranged. Not by much though.
Occupation: Vault Security
RR: Hello there, officer!
Brandon: I know who you are. Ask away.
RR: Okay. Uhm… Ever shot someone?
Brandon: Not intentionally, no.
RR: I sense there’s an interesting story behind it.
Brandon: Well, that depends on the eye of the beholder. But, anyway. Me and Bill, a buddy of mine who likes to tag along on my rounds, was doing a security check up on the storage room after someone reported hearing some noise from there. So, I opened the door, it was dark, and – actually, it’s not that good of a story. Next question.
RR: So you and Bill are friends, huh? Nice guy that.
Brandon: Yeah. We are kind of the peace keepers around here. We call ourselves “The B-shooters”, because both our names start with B. He’s not allowed to carry a gun though.
RR: Sounds like pea-shooters.
Brandon: Actually it doesn’t, since no one but you thinks so. If anyone called us that we’d fill em with lead.
RR: Perfect reasoning. Have you ever had to use lethal force on anyone, resulting in death?
Brandon: Actually, no.
RR: Interesting. Do you think it’s because of the strict regulations or –
Brandon: Wait. Scratch that. Write “If someone breaks the law, I’ll give them a world of hurt.
RR: Sure. I’ll –
Brandon: And justice.
RR: Ok. So, what do you think ab-
Brandon: No, skip that. You know what, why don’t you give me a few minutes, and then come back? I need to think about this.
RR: Yeah, I’ll be back. C’yah!
Notes: I never came back.
So it seems that being a part of law enforcement doesn’t help in keeping someone closer to the ground here.
This place is starting to wear on me.
