a part of Fight or Flight, by Mephisto.

From a distance, it's appearance is the same as always. That of the large city it was, with all its many tall buildings. The reality of the times gets more and more evident as one approaches, however.

Setting

The remnants of a once bustling and prosperous city. The giant husk now houses some surviving humans, as well as the degraded fiends that kill on site, within its bounds. With so many places to hide, safety can be found as many times as needed. In this time, nowhere is truly safe, at least not forever.

With most of Chicago's inhabitants dead or degraded, the food that was abandoned can provide sustenance for any who find it. The non-perishables are most valued of all, since they would be able to be stocked up and utilized when food was scarce.

As with Stim itself, the boons of the city are not also without its downfalls. There are many situations that could arise while traversing the desolation that could cause one to perish. There is a lot of terrain, due to the "new decor" of the streets and buildings, that could potentially prove fatal in a do or die situation. This does not only mean rubble or other destruction blocking or trapping you, causing you to fall prey to any degraded chasing you. With the state of the city as it is, inanimate objects could very well be the sole cause of your eternal silence.

It must not have registered in Niko's brain when he first looked the guys over. "And I was about to show you guys the showers. Oh well." he laughed as Daniel walked out of the locker room in their direction. "oh that's Daniel. Dude these are the guys from over the radio. Roland and Bishop."

A friendly "Hi" was all Roland said. Bishop nodded his silent greeting. "Well," Roland said. He turned to Niko. "May I check out the surveillance room? I saw you had the console panel open. Care if I check out your guys' handy work?"

"uh yeah...I'll show you." Niko said with an arched brow at Daniel's rudeness. The way Danny had been acting was making Niko a little worried. He led the way into the Surveillance room, letting Roland take the seat in front of the monitors. "Their was an incident and a bullet was planted straight through the panel, but I fixed it up myself. I'm a bit of a techie." he said proudly.

"Right on!" Roland offered a bro fist. "Well, I'm probably the biggest techy alive on the planet right now, at least in the city. So, mind if I take a look?" Roland got down on his hands and knees and peered inside. "Ah, nice. Yeah, not bad at all. Hey, do me a favor and hit the main power for the console please?" Roland found the nearest metal and held it for a moment to release any static he might have. Once the system was powered down, he went to work. A few moments later he sat up. "That should do it." His adjustments complete, he refitted the cover to the panel. "Alright, start her up!" They all stood back and watched as all the monitors came back on. They were a lot clearer than before, too.

"Nice!" Niko hollered slamming fist with Roland again. He patted him on the back. "I think I'm in love."

A song from an old guitar playing comedian, Stephen Lynch, came to Roland's mind as he smiled weakly and laughed awkwardly. Then he took a seat at the console and started going through everything via keyboard. He was familiarizing himself with everything, taking anything useful. He also did a sweep of all the many cameras, leaving a screen on a few views of the calming chaos outside. Then he found a view that showed Neveah, and he froze. What was left of her lifeless body lay limp in the Chicago streets. Roland was frozen for several moments, the room went quiet as well. Then Roland flicked to a different camera and lowered his head into his hands.

Niko eyes almost popped out of his head at the image. he fumbled with the controls, switching that particular monitor off. He felt his heart drop. "Don't worry,dude, we'll go out there and put her to rest as soon as it's safe. We'll do it properly."

Roland released his face, allowing his hands to fall limp. He was still leaning over with his head down, staring at the floor. He sighed and then replied. "Yeah..." He sat up slowly. He decided after a few moments to break the awkward silence. "Well?" He turned to Niko, trying to be cheery again. "How about that movie?"

"Yeah, uh it's past the food court." Niko exited the surveillance room passing by the locker room to let Alex know where they were heading. Alex and Bishop were speaking with one another. Probably because of their similar backgrounds in the military. "Alex was a medic for the military. He did some time over in Afghanistan." Niko said leading Roland down an escalator.

Roland looked to Bishop, "You guys comin'?" Bishop shook his head.

"Nah, you two love birds go ahead." Roland's turn for an eye-roll. Bishop and Alex laughed. Roland left and followed Niko. He listened to him but couldn't keep his mind off Neveah. She was just out side, ravaged. He could recall her lifeless face from the camera's view. Her permanent just added to his guilt. He shook his head slightly. Then focused back to the present. "So, what movies do we have to pick from?"

"Some pixar cartoon about a bunny uprising in some place with a stupid name, a vamp flick. Not the good kind, but the kind with the one's that sparkle. Lame, right? There's 28 months later, but it might b a bit...too relevant to really be that enjoyable."

Roland loved the last movie mentioned, but now was not the time for that. He knew it would be a bad idea. "Hell, you know what? I need a good comedy. Let's watch the crappy vampire movie."

Niko didn't mention that the vampire flick was a romance, but something told him that Roland already knew that. The teenager pushed the door to the room with the reel open. "Have any idea how to work this thing? because I'm stumped." he chuckled, scratching the back of his head.

"Yeah," Roland said. "I think so. Go find us a good seat," Roland jested. Then he went to work, tweaking around with stuff until he got the thing rollin' and the screen was lit up. "Sweet." Roland made a thumbs up in front of the projector, casting a silhouette on the screen when he hit the lights. He could hear Niko laugh from below in the darkness. Roland then walked down around to join him, stopping by the concession stand for some packaged candies and treats. Might as well.

When Roland plopped down next to Niko, he took a handful of chocolate covered sweets and packed them into his mouth. He gave Roland a double thumbs up next to his bulging cheeks.

Roland laughed out loud and started in on the Sour Patch Watermelons. They were his favorite candy, hands down. Then the previews started. "Ooooh, fuck this." Roland set his candy in a cup holder and bolted out of the theater. Suddenly the audio stopped and all was dark. The only light was if you looked up to the projector and the light coming from that room. Then, the movie started. The blue screen with the motion picture's rating appeared and Roland bolted back into the theater soon after. "Good, I didn't miss anything," he said as the film began.

"Not like you would have if you got in any later." Niko remarked. "Oh look, it's starting the same way the last movie four movies did, with a pointless monologue about her feelings. Go make me a sammich!"

t," asked Bishop when they made their back.

"Good comedy," Roland said with a smirk. Niko just laughed. Bishop and Alex looked at each other in confusion. "I'm more curious as to what went on in here," Roland asked worriedly. "Wait! Don't answer that. I don't want to know." More laughter followed.

Niko held his stomach that ached from all the laughter and wiped a tear from his right eye. He was glad they ran into these guys. They were easy going and they all seemed to have some things in common other than struggling to survive. Alex and him had really gotten lucky. he wondered how long the good times would last and then a sobering thought hit him. "Hey, has anyone seen Daniel?"
