The Rising of a Admiral-Book 1- A New World- Chapter 1- The Broker- Part 3
Part 3: The Broker
Looking back I could say I was naive’ at the time. I had just come into this new world and I did not know what to expect. I just wanted to find my father and the reason he abandoned me in the vault. Most of what I had improvised was from what I had learned from lessons from the vault at the time. I knew that there was suppose to have been some sort of barter system, and all I had at the time was a few things from the vault. I was surprised that they had a currency system at all and that there form of currency was old world bottle caps. It was not a shock to me of course it was not very stable because there was no real universal economic stability to them. My first goal was to find my father and I learned how unprepared I was when the man with the information tried to get me to do his dirty work.
After visiting Craterside Supply I asked around and everyone pointed to me to Colin Moriarty. He seemed to be the information broker of the town; I knew from the start that he could not be trusted there just seemed to be this vibe around him (the warning from Simms did not have anything to do with it). I found the best way to approach him was to just to try to get as much information out of him without giving anything away.
“Well hello there, Colin Moriarty at your service, welcome to my saloon my own slice of heaven in this backward burg” Moriarty said to me in his strong Irish accent when I walked up to him.
“Hi I’m looking for my father middle age guy his name is James”.
“My god, it's you, the little baby all grown up, well this is quite a surprise”. With a shock that he recognized me I thought for a second and asked, “What exactly do you mean by that?”
“Your James’s son are you not, it’s been a good 20 or so years since I saw you”.
“What do you mean I was born in the vault”? “Ah yes I see what’s happening I have heard of the brainwashing that goes on in there. All hail the overseer and stuff. I’m sorry to say laddie that it’s all a lie you and your father are not from the vault”.
I was never prepared for this information, but I could see the truth in his eyes and the proof from the overseers’ terminal that the vault has been open before, after been told that the vault has been close for over 200 years I was inclined to believe him.
“Well let’s say I do believe you for now, I’m not here to have a debate of philosophy I’m actually looking for information”.
“Well you want to find your father well, sonny information is not free I’ll tell you for a small favor. There is this girl that stole a lot of money from me and I want it back. You get it for me I’ll let you keep most of the cash you recover”.
At first the offer was tempting, I get money and information, and I did not have to pay something, but I had this gut feeling there was a catch and said to him.
“I’ll consider it just gives me the information on what you know, and if I come up with anything ill let you know”. Moriarty gave me a name, at that was it some girl named Silver that used to work for him.
“If you feel like it, spend some time in my saloon I guaranty that you will enjoy it.”
Seeing that was all I could get from him I decided to take his offer and see what was inside.
Hope you guy's like,
