"Heh. Pussy." Zaweri says as he downs the shot again. He feels dizzy.
"Heh, you are a good guy too!" Zaweri says, cheerfully laughing at Eli.

While the guys are all off getting drunk, Amy heads back to the RV so she can make the shirt Duncan bought into something she could actually wear.

[[Actually going to try and update this, this week.]]

S T A L K E Rs

There wasn't even time to think about what just happened, two people, one stranger, and one edgelord STALKER who knew Chet for years. Without hesitation shred the sickly figure into a millions pieces. The head exploding sending sickly green, mucousy visage and blood flying all over the aging walls and stained floor.

Stripes stared silently, and slowly collapsed to his knees. His eyes as wide as they could be, his mouth agape in horror. Tears began to form and slowly roll down the curvature of his face.

The rest of the STALKERS come charging down the hall weapons raised, Jacob tagging in the middle with Mordecai flanking on the right side. They turn the corner and their lights flood down the hall revealing the full destruction of Chet. "W-what the fuck!? That was our own guy!?", his expression was both angry and fearful at the same time as he glanced to Isaac, then to Graham, and then to the corpse. One of the STALKERs walk over towards stripes and begins to console him. "Graham, what happened? Because we saw something dart out of the lab back there, and we know it wasn't one of our own. Did you kill it?", Commander asks.

THE RV

Amy takes a quiet walk back to where the RV was parked, the distant sounds of partying and drunken merriment echoing out behind her. You reach the RV door passing by a few robed men and some kids playing soccer in the street. When you begin to walk up the steps you grab for the handrail only to find it coated in a sticky film of... slime? Making your way up into the RV you hear strange sounds emanating from the bathroom, sort of a sickly shriek mixed with the choking gurgles of someone being strangled. You notice that the light is on, and that the door is a ajar slightly giving you a view into the room.


P A R T T I M E !!!

Duncan heads into the bar and enters into the drunken fray, everyone is sufficiently drunk at this point.

[[RP a bit, talk amongst yourselves, develop your characters, and get Mrnocamera to post, because we're about to get into an actual quest for you guys.]]

Isaac stares at the body for a few minutes, not reacting to those around him until he finally stands up and looks at the boss of the STALKERS and begins talking softly "no, it was one of your own boys. But he was seriously fucked, broken jaw and nose along with projectile vomit." Isaac shakes his head and starts walking slowly further down the hallway. "Nothing I could have done but shoot him, even if he was still alive and himself he was fucked beyond repair." Then in whispering almost to himself "Jesus fucking christ...fuck!"

"I think Chet got seriously fucked up, broken nose and jaw. I think he also caught something, he was projectile vomiting... eyes bloodshot. It might of been contagious, Plus I felt he wasn't Chet anymore. I don't think that's supposed to be green either..." Graham says, looking at the green visage

Amy grabs her gun from the table and approaches the door, peeking through the gap with the barrel pointed against the door.
"...Anyone in there?"

Quest: Under The Crust

Amy approaches the gap in between to see something in the mirror, a blurred figure shuttering in the mirror. It's shape looks human but you're not sure... just staring at it for this long is starting to make your head hurt. You swear there's something lingering in the corner of your eye.

S T A L K E Rs

"So he got zombified?" The Captain asks Isaac and Graham.

"... AND THEN HE SAID HE DIDN'T OWN A CAR! HAHAHAHAHAHAAA!" Zaweri laughs loudly as he tells a (very poor) joke. He is VERY drunk.

Amy looks to the side in an attempt to find out what's there, but decides instead to just open the door.    "What even are you?" She asks, bringing her AK up to point at Colonel Eldrich over there.

"More or less, yeah." Graham says, "I just didn't think they would be here..."

"Looks like it, never seen a healthy person look or act like that." Isaac says, looking around.

Business

The suited man dripped the cherry red liquid into his shot of bourbon, "A little bit of something the R&D boys cooked up, promised something that packs an extra kick." He turns around to face the board room table, with only one occupant sitting in one of the cushiony chairs. A woman, DNA mixed with some primate mutagen they made a long while back, gave her a tale, turned her feet into an extra pair of hands, and a mane; still she was stunningly beautiful under all the changes. "So they're finally laying us off, not for playing God. Not for breaking the many, many rules that came with the responsibility of tangling up human and various DNA samples for "evolutionary purposes". But because of a goddamned merger." The once wealthy CEO says while throwing back the shot, the taste burning as it slid heavily down his throat. She nods still reading over the package that came with their removal from the company.

"I-I mean we're the faces of the company, and BAM! Just like that, "Fuck you, bye, bye. We're letting these retards who know literally nothing about anything take over your positions simply because of job experience.", frustrated he grabs the bottle off the shelf it was resting on and pours himself another shot. "Just like... fuck... what am I supposed to do now?" She adjusts the glasses and looks over to him, "I dunno the package is nice, they're letting us collect a small percentage of whatever products are still being sold. That and we still got to keep our spots in The Coalition council." She shuffles the papers together and pulls out a joint from between her breasts. "Still these new guys, they haven't been in the field we have they're going to end up fucking it up, the company is going to bottom out, or worse who knows what they'll let slide." He slams back another shot and paces back to the window, looking out over the shining city the desert sun still high overhead.

"Phillip, there's no need to worry. Everything will be fine, and besides not like we really had much of a say in anything." She sticks the joint between her teeth and lights it up. "We just threw money at things and hoped they worked out, and it's not like that stopped half the staff from doing whatever the hell they wanted too." She starts walking over to the door, "Now I have an office I still need to clean out, you staying in here?"

Phillip kept his gaze out the window, staring at the busy streets below that seemed to be dancing in the heat. "Just a little while longer, I want to enjoy the view."



Meanwhile in the current day....

Under The Crust

You walk into the bathroom, the tile feeling warm beneath your feet. The thing in the mirror twists and contorts into several forms, some more horrifying then the last, it's seriously starting to affect your head now... It doesn't respond to your demand, but you see your peripheral vision darkening your focus is solely on this thing in the mirror. You're trying to piece together some solid image but you can't, you can't look away either.

The back of your neck begins to tingle, your breathing is becoming more labored, you swear you're starting to hear voices.

Something... about a cave? No, a building, lost to something, time, buried under the sands. You think you hear something about a church. You can hear something slithering behind you and the sound of meat being torn off of bones. The stench is rank, like bodies decaying mixed with the cent of sulfur. Everything is hot, burning hot.

Your eyes start getting heavy...


You open your eyes once more. You're on the floor, the bathroom tile is cold and smells like dried piss, there's blood leaking out of your nose, your skin is red, and the tips of your feathers are singed. You feel like a turkey dinner.


STALKERs

The Captain sighs, "Well that's just great. Heading where he came from might help us in the long run though." He gestures for one of you two to peep out the staircase.
