"Evergreen Mills." Jericho said with a longing in his voice. "They’ve done quite a bit since I’ve last seen it."
We were looking down from a cliff above the raider camp, avoiding the valley entry way that was filled with mines. The facility was huge, made up of a main building and several smaller shacks acting as guard posts.
"Take a look through my scope." I said, handing Jericho my Guass rifle. "You’re not gonna believe this."
He peered through my scope and his jaw dropped. “What the… how the fuck?”
At the center of the camp, there was a large electrified pen housing none other than a super mutant behemoth. The beast was gnawing at a brahmin skeleton as it sat in the cage, unable to leave.
"Take another look." I said. "The pen is connected to a small generator about 20 feet away. If I can destroy the generator, the cage won’t be electrified anymore."
He handed my rifle back over to me. “Take the shot, boss.”
The behemoth turned to look at the small explosion as I destroyed the generator.
"That should do it. We just have to wait until it realizes that the cage isn’t electrified anymore." I said.
We took turns watching through the scope as the raiders came to investigate and were subsequently smashed by the angry behemoth. Soon the whole camp was firing on the super mutant. Jericho and I watched with amusement as several raiders fired assault rifles, missle launchers, and flame throwers at the beast.
"To be honest, my money is on the raiders. They’ve got quite a lot of firepower." I said to Jericho as we began scaling the cliff down into the camp. The sun was starting to go down and soon, all would be quiet.
"Looks like you were wrong." Jericho said. "I only count two more raiders, and the behemoth is still going strong."
I always was a sore loser so I took aim with my gauss rifle and buried a round deep inside the mutants skull. “Oh look at that! The raiders won! Too bad they have to die too.”
We made our way through the compound, taking out any survivors as we went and picking up ammo off of the corpses.
"We’ll need to get the main key from one of the guard houses." Jericho told me. "There’s one just up the ramp there, let’s go take a look.
