the brothers were making there way to the nearby antique store. "do you think this is the place?"
"it better be, its the only one we haven't checked"
bastion and his brother entered the store and stunned in awe of all the things this store possessed.
swords to clothes of many kinds, but they were here for one thing in particular. a monkey statue.
"do you want to ask or should i?".
no i will ask i could use a bit of courage....and luck
bastion met the owner at the check out. "i was sent here to pick up a monkey statue".
bastion was nerves to say the least, and is still getting uses to talking to people, so what better then experience.
bastion had to recall what his friend said, its been a while.
"right...ummm. it was holding something, uhhhh..".
"a bag of gold". "a bag of gold yeah that's it".
the man seem unimpressed."it may be in the back". "oh...ok..we can wait."
the man walk to the back room.
the time he took was a few hours but both of the brothers were in no rush and the noise in the room shown some promise and the antiques kept them occupied. after a while they were wondering what was taking the guy so long. the noise was getting on there nerves, be for they decided to go in after him, he arrived with a dull look.
"is anything the matter? ".
bastion started to look closely at the man's movement and it look like his was not paying any attention to anything.
"huh!.....theres some thing going on, it looks like a zombie apocalypse out there."
bastion stated "so does this guy"
the man instantly lunged at bastion in a blind fiery, thrashing about. bastion fell over in the assault and started to pull any thing down to block his way.it was futile the man just crawled over it with ease.
his brother intervene by pulling him away from bastion,but then the man grabbed his sleeve ripping it right off with little to no effort.
bastion threw a small balloon that burst in silver powder over the man's face. as they both got to there feet they looked at the at there target with a gleam in there eyes "roast him".
as the man charged at them, his brother pulled out a stick with some black goo on it and a lighter.
he lit the stick on fire then both of them jumped right past him smearing the stick's substance on his face. the silver powder started to glow red and his head started to smoke.
the man fell as it burned right through him. the boys looked at each other. "well that was unexpected". "yes but we should get out of here when we can". "lets get the statue first".
they found the statue in the back room*
. "great..now how do we get out of here?". "well we could check for keys? then we could drive away". "first we don't know how to drive, eh but its better then nothing".
the boys spoke as so calmly like it did not surprise them.
after the ransack the place for the keys, a worry just pop in his brothers head. " do you think this is infections". "only if they infect by touch...probably not... so it would be best to change you cloths".
his brother changed in some kind of kimono. "its not like any one is going to see you like that".
OK time for a plan..what am i saying our plans never work, ok you go and check for people in that half of the city and i will check this half, and umm you take the car.....and i will take a nice sword heheheh
his brother was about to argue but go to excited to be on a adventure "aw why do you get the sword hmmmmm. ok i will call you if and or when we leave this place".
bastion took a sword he had his eye on when they entered the shop a nice french sword. *
bastion was real eager to use it but stuck to stealth, he made his way down alleyways and hide in trash cans and dumpsters surprising it did not smell as bad as he though.
he walk only for a few minutes be for hearing a scream. bastions head peaked out of a dumpster, "that sounds like my queue now what do i have in my disposal."
he looked around till he spotted a bar. yes.
