Max and Siks were passing back and forth observations of everyone that entered the room. First was a chubby teenage girl who looked familiar to Siks but he couldn't totally place it she seemed quite nice and kinda cute too, Max's attention though was on the woman with hair redder than his she looked like some kind of New Vegas secretary albeit a little younger then was allowed in the Casinos he'd say Call Girl too but life has taught him to never assume.
"Hell Max that red head could be your daughter." Siks said chewing on a toothpick Max scoffed settling his plasma defender back on his hip after attaching the mods.
"How the fuck old do I look? Sister? Maybe. Daughter? No besides I think Red Lucy would've hunted me down and told me if we had a kid." Siks thought back over the game and nodded Max had definitely done Red Lucy especially since they were married and all now but that girl would be of the right age for when the first time they met but the young man left it at that.
As the next people joined them and upon seeing the white lizard made Max grab his carbine thinking this creature some kind of albino Deathclaw.
"Who in the hell imagines a Deathclaw and brings it to life!? If I can lock onto it's head before it sees me I should be able to drop it in one shot!" Seeing this as a very bad idea Siks stepped between Max and the creature.
[SPEECH 100/76] "Whoa, whoa, there lad calm down. That's no Deathclaw no one is that dumb besides I don't think we can kill the others." [SUCCEEDED] Max shoulders his weapon sighing then. "You're probably right besides I don't have my usual huge surplus of ammo. Just over 300 of each. For some reason I don't think I want to be stuck here with just Chance's Knife." Siks nodded, next to enter the Meeting room were two people arm in arm one he recognized to be Storm but once again he had no clue who the giggly girl was shaking his head the man rolled the toothpick around his lips.
"I really need to get more into media, I have no clue who most of these people are." Max nodded looking at the two as well the male seemed to be military of some kind not NCR but definitely military.
"Now you know how I felt for most of my travels. The woman's cute though, I'd like to catch her out in the Wastes." Siks laughed shaking his head.
"And after Red Lucy found out?" Max thought for a few seconds then said.
"Screw you." Both Siks and Max were surprised by what happened next out of the blue they heard the voice of a young girl and before they could look or react a cute little teenage girl jumped at Siks hugging him. He laughed wrapping his arms around the girl easily picking her up.
"Hey there Lark! And ay we did it. This is.." He was about to introduce Max but his hyperactive little pupil was too wild to pay attention as one of her other friends entered shaking his head he let the girls go and looked up seeing Hig walk in followed by some kind of badass officer.
"Hey there Hig, this is Mad Max who's your stoic friend here?" Max had been watching this all with the amused eyes of a cynic that still likes laughing. Apparently his Summoner was a cradle robber but he kept this thoughts to himself while Siks doesn't look like a killer Max wouldn't put it passed the man to really fight if pushed enough. Max looked up at the guy Siks was talking to but the Wastelander's eyes found and locked onto the military man behind this Hig. His hand went for his pistol this guy had to be NCR.
Ever since the second battle of Hoover Damn when he snatched the dam right out of the NCR's hands then sent them back to California with their tails between their legs he's been expecting them to send a hit squad out to hunt him down. Ignoring Siks's intro he looked the man dead in his eyes.
"If you're NCR come to kill me you better be ready for one hell of a fire fight." Siks practically jumped at Max making him let go of his weapon.
[SPEECH 100/95] Relax dude, really if you couldn't shoot the white lizard do you really think you could shoot a perfect stranger that hasn't appeared as a red tick on your Pip-Boy?" Max stayed his weapon again nodding.
[SUCCEEDED] "You're right Siks, my apologies big man. Ya see where I come from guys in military uniforms need to be watched. I'm Max."
Siks sighed happy that another crisis was averted but a familar voice and a well placed spank made him turn and wink at the woman he should've been watching for.
"How do we know you aren't stalking me dear Sets? Glad to see you decided to join us this is my friend Mad Max of New Vegas." He nodded to the red head who was still eyeing up Hig's military friend carefully.
