The Vast Wasteland
It's been a few days since Mr. Florence had sent out applications to various mercenaries, bounty hunters and other little thugs that may be able to pull his job off. He sits in his large pre-war hotel, living his the presidential suite and awaits all of them to come. All the applicants that would arrive would be directed to one of the meeting rooms in his hotel/casinos. There they would be served some refreshments and able to get to know each other before getting debriefed about what they would be doing.
The town of Serenity is calm and quiet, one of the few large settlements around the Vast Wasteland. It isn't as large as New Vegas but it is much larger than Megaton back in DC. Here people come to trade and sell. Serenity is in the perfect location to be the center of the caravan routes in the area. Here people come to buy various things from purified water to a vehicle. The large town is still being constructed so new homes are to be renovated. People that come here by vehicle do not have to fear for their transportation being stolen since the security of the town takes good care of it.
Just outside of Serenity, Damien Frost arrived. He had his leather hood pulled up though the sun was starting to set in the west. If the newer calenders can be trusted it should be around August. Damien took out a half empty cigarette packet and placed one to his mouth and lit it with an old engraved lighter, an heirloom of his. He came to Serenity by the main road which had patrolling guards. He was asked a couple of questions like what his business was in Serenity. When he said that he was there to meet Mr. Florence and showed them the invitation, a special casino chip that was given to him by the messenger he had made contact with. The guard nodded to him and pointed at the building that Mr. Florence owned. They wouldn't have stopped Frost from entering the city, it was jut a formality for the guards to question some of the travelers.
By all rights, Mr. Florence owned Serenity. He was the great grandson of the founder of the city and the Florence family had made it one of the most thriving settlements from DC to California. NCR did not have any authority here though Mr. Florence has been known to make dealings with them and even one or two contracts from the Brotherhood of Steel back in DC. Mr. Florence was truly successful though there were rumors about this certain Florence, rumors which hinted at that he was the black sheep of the Florence Family, especially after this father's mysterious and sudden passing. No one dared though call out since Mr. Florence was the man in charge of the city. He was not known for being a deceiving man however, always following through his end of a bargain though he was known however for being a harsh man when cheated.
Frost exhaled the smoke slowly after the first drag of the cigarette and looked around. People went about their business and electric scooters driven by couriers for the city went back and forth. Most bars were opened 24/7 and so were strip clubs and brothels. Vehicles were not allowed in the city except for the scooters and the trucks that carried large supplies such as metals or Security Transport that did patrols within the city, mostly at night. Frost had never been in Serenity before and there for was surprised to see the rumored prosperity of the famed city with his own eyes. Frost was a wander, never really staying in one place for long. He made his living by hunting game around certain towns and around the wasteland and doing odd jobs for certain people. He walked past some closing stores such as a weapon shop and a tailor and even a cock fight before going coming to Mr. Florence's Casino. Like the bars the Casinos were open all night so going in was no problem though his weapons were confiscated.
After showing his invitation to one of the security guards one of them escorted him to the 5th floor where a meeting room was set up for the oncoming applicants for the scavening job. There refreshments were cared for, a table full of Purified water, wasteland fruit juice, beer and snacks.
