Phi raised an eyebrow as the man started listing off nicknames and aliases. "hmmmm...I'll just call you cowboy for now, what with the duster and the fancy revolver you got there" the names he gave out, burned man and divide, literally flew straight over her head. Though that was normal. After all she was a vault dweller, she knew the capital wasteland fine, but it didn't really benefit to give any mind to anywhere beyond that. Infact given how they were literally on the opposite coast the only people who would know ANYTHING about the west would be the brotherhood and any enclave remnants wandering around. Simply put no one knew what the heck the NCR or any of that stuff was, and it was foolish to think they did. Out here Cary's over cautiousness was very much unnecessary. "no clue what your talking about. I did see a man get burned once, then again thats what you get for walking into a raider camp with just a hunting rifle" she said with a small chuckle, though quickly stopped realizing how morbid it was. "as for Divide...well I got a list of dirty jokes I could pull off the top of my head, but I doubt thats what you had in mind" she said as they hit the atrium. She stopped for a moment, wondering whether she should take him to the overseer right away or not. Her attention was pulled away when he asked the vaults history. "Vault 101, you were born here, you will die here, because nobody enters, nobody leaves....well atleast thats how it used to be back then. To be honest most everyone was just living their lives for the most part. Life down here was the closest you could get to pre war life just about anywhere. though 10 years ago...our doctor...James...he left, and things went crazy, a god damn civil war broke out over whether or not it was right to leave the vault or not or if we should stay locked in. Well ultimately Jame's son came back, alot of people blamed him for everything that happened, but even then he still helped us, The old Overseers daughter took over and ever since we've been venturing out into the wastes and over the past ten years we've adapted to be just as compitent as any other settlement, better even. You know if you want somplace safe to settle down you should consider staying here. We used to have small population issues you know, but ever since we've opened our door thats never really been a problem" she explained.
"hey don't dat b*tch look kind of familiar?" a voice from near the school asked as Avani passed by. "no you idiot she's....wait a second....the hell...thats Avani...Hey you B*tch get back here!" the other voice called. Suddenly the woman would see two men running after her, both with shotguns in their hands. At first they might have looked like raiders, but they were to well armed, to well armored....they were slavers. The reason Rose and the other vault dwellers knew not to go near the school, is because the thugs at Paradise falls had turned it into a secret operating base once the other settlements started regularly launching attacks against the actual Paradise Falls. And these two men new Avani very well, they had been two of her handlers before she escaped.
