L:Listen to that shit, found it digging in the scrap, thats old, thats classy, thats going to buy me a way into civil protection.
D1: U sure? That sort of stuff? Sounds kind of soft to me!
L: Sure, they hint that Breen collects that pre-benefactor arae art. So why not risk a deal?
D1: Dunno. Sounds like a bad idea, -my grandfather got his finger broken selling a painting to them.
D2: Give it a break. My Gf has 2nd boobcancer, the falconpunchfield made me proud father of a bloody dead fetus the day before yesterday. Any deal is better than no deal.
L:There must be benefits to beeing civil protection.
D1:Benefits beyond better Soup?

D!: Hey, dont you make an easy way out for that asshole, or ill report you to overwatch.
L: "Shut up, he is a teardrop dealer. They are big with CP! Check your troubles, weve got plenty already."
D2: "Have some free drops for me, Mr. Healer? Got some wounds to take care."
S:"Not for free, youngster."
[Car stops, 2 CPs enter.]
CP:"Drop your weapons. Citizens prepare to recive judgment."
D1:"We shot in selfdefense- he was a Resistancewarrior."

Due to non-recent nuclear terrorism against a Universal union installation, respirators must be worren at all times, to avoid contamination with cobalt and gold-nucleoids. In Addition, due to recent tectonic activity, livingquarters and food rations are limited. Always remember, that cannibalism is a punishable offense, repeated criminal behaviour leading to transfer beyond the citys perimeters.
