|Fallout: Nuka Break|
|The trio continue to trek the Wasteland. Rummaging through the bags of the raiders they killed in the previous episode, they find nothing of value.|
|Scarlett and Ben throw the bags away.|
|Twig||(dumps bag) No. Nothing at all.|
|Ben||(picks up Twig's bag and rummages through it) Y'know, I find it hard to believe that anyone this could far out not have anything on them. That's just rude.|
|Scarlett||Probably because Twig is a moron and the only thing is ever looks for is NUKA-COLA!|
|Ben||(takes out a folded piece of paper from the bag) Well there's a lot to do with it. But...|
(opens the fold, examines it) Scar!
|Scarlett and Twig look at Ben.|
|Ben||You should probably see this.|
|Scarlett slowly walks over and takes the paper, examining it. Her brow furrows and she seems slightly distressed at what's in it.|
|Twig||(walking over) What's that?|
|Scarlett gives Twig the paper and he takes a look as well.|
|Ben||That's probably why we were attacked.|
|The piece of paper is a bounty note for Scarlett. A picture of Scarlett is on it. The note dictates...|
Slave formally owned by Leon Swallow has been spotted around the New Vegas areas with two companions: a Ghoul and a Vault Dweller.
Reward: 200 caps
|Cut to a slideshow.|
|To understand their predicament, one must understand Scarlett's unique situation.|
Once a slave to Caesar's Legion, she was bought by a man by the name of Leon Swallow.
While being transported from Boulder City back across the Colorado River, their escorts sought refuge from the oppressive wasteland sun in a cave.
It was here that fate led Twig and Ben where they stumbled upon the group.
A firefight ensued.
In the confusion, the trio managed to make their escape.
Now, hunted by the Legion, they find themselves on the wrong end of a very sharp spear.
|Cut back to Twig examining the drawing...|
|Twig||O-ok, wait. Who has time to learn how to draw?|
|Twig||I mean, w-we're in a world full of mutants and robots...|
|Twig||...and people killing each other over caps, and this guy learns how to draw?|
|Scarlett||Twig! Do you think that this is a game? That this is fun for me?|
|Twig is speechless.|
|Ben||Well, look on the bright side. It's two-hundred caps.|
|Twig||How is that a bright side, huh?|
|Ben||It used to be a hundred-and-fifty. That means we're movin' up in the world.|
See, if that keeps up, we're gonna have some real hunters comin' after us.
|Scarlett puts down her gun and fits her gloves in place.|
|Ben||Hardcore, cold-blooded murdering bastards! They could be anywhere!|
|Scarlett punches Ben across the face. He falls down in a heap.|
|Scarlett picks up her gun and starts to walk away. Twig offers his hand, but Ben doesn't take it.|
|Ben||I got it...|
|He uses his shotgun as a crutch as he gets up, muttering incoherently to himself. Scarlett stops and sighs.|
|Ben||Ahh, I had it comin'.|
|Scarlett||Let's just find your friend, ok?|
|Twig||Scar, I'm sorry, ok?|
|Scarlett||(waves dismissively) Yeah, it's fine.|
It's ok, Twig. Being mad at you is like being mad at a puppy: it's just too dumb to know any better.
|Twig stares and sighs to his chagrin. Scarlett turns around and starts patting her lap at him.|
|Scarlett||(calling a dog) Come on, boy. Come on... Look at you, come on...|
|Twig give her a look and follows.|
|The day passes, and an eagle caws overhead. The trio continue to walk. Scarlett tries to drink from a bottle of water, but it's empty.|
(to Ben) You said we would be there by now.
|Ben||We are. I know where we're going.|
|Scarlett||What does that even mean?|
|Ben||It means... that I'm not lost, and I know, where, we're going--|
|Scarlett||I never said we were lost.You said we were gonna be there by now...|
|Twig||(lagging behind, stops) Ugh...|
|Scarlett||...and, you're the one who said you said we'd be there by now because if you did...!|
|Twig catches his breath. As Scarlett and Ben continue to argue, a mirror's glare shines on Twig's face. Trying to shield his eyes from it, he catches a glimpse of a settlement in the distance.|
|Twig||Hey, hey guys!|
|Scarlett and Ben continue to argue.|
|Scarlett||-I just wanted to know when we're gonna be there...|
|His shout echoes.|
|Twig points to the direction of the settlement.|
|Twig||Is that it?|
|The two turn and see it.|
|Ben||Told you we weren't lost. Heheh...|
|Scarlett||Dude, you're an asshole!|
|They start walking.|
|Twig||Hey, wait- wait up!|
|After a while, they reach the gates of what looks to be a ghost town. The sign above says "Eastwood". They walk across the dilapidated shacks.|
|Twig||Eastwood, huh? Kinda empty.|
|Scarlett||Kinda really empty.|
|Ben sighs as he looks around.|
|Twig||(calling out) Hello?|
|They immediately get surrounded by men in cowboy hats, cocking shotguns on the roof. A bunch more flanks them in the back and front, some wielding pistols. A man wearing a large, black top hat. The sound of his steel-toed boots echoed on the wood as he stepped out of the shack and came towards them.|
|The trio drop their weapons and raise their hands.|
|Mayor Conners||(tsks-tsks) Such a dirty word from such a pretty mouth.|
|The scene cuts back from the Eastwood sign.|
