Flight of the ValkariesMature

"Well shit."  Matt said scatching his head.

"Something wrong?"  Jamie said looking in at the cockpit.

"I just realized that the Enclave have anti aircraft weapons.  They think that Brotherhood might try airstriking them.  Even though they rarely use vertibirds.  We can pass them by flying through the rubble and skyscrapers at low altitude."

"Thats risky.  But we dont have another option."

"We could ditch."  Matt shrugged.

A loud rumble came from down the road.  A pack of gouls suddenly flooded down the street. 

"Or not."  Jamie said.

Matt hit the throttle.  The two blades began to spin and generate lift.  The gouls heard and turned to run at the aircraft.  He slowly lifted off.  A target reticule appeared on the windscreen.  He armed the missles and took aim.  Two unguided nukes were lobbed from the vertibird into the cloud of mutated.  They hit the ground and detonated.  The explosions rocked the plane they were so strong.  They vaporized and threw most ghouls away like ragdolls.  The vertibird lurched forward and went through the mushroom clouds.  He flew it up a bit and then slowed and moved down the corridors of buildings.  He went like this using Jamie's directions.  He knew the controls from when he worked as a caravaneer flying small helicopters.

"We are almost there."  Jamie said sitting down in the back of the aircraft.

"I am landing on that patch of land near the vault door."

"You know where the fuel source is in this thing?"

"Yeah.  Pull out the floor when we land.  It should be a 80 pound glowing canister."

"Need help?"  Matt asked as Jamie carried the device inside.

"Nah.  I'll be good."  He said.

Jamie moved it down to the vaults power station.

"This should be easy." he said getting to work on adapting the power for the vault.

Matt wandered down the corridors.  He opened one door to a random living courters.  He stepped in looking at the beds.  His vault had beds like this.  He remebered his sister.  She had ran with the others while he and the rest of security held off the enclave.  He remebered his girlfriend.  She had been wounded and had been carried off in a stretcher.  They said stimpacks might save her.

"Samantha.  Jessie.  I miss you."  Matt said nearly crying.

He had lost his life.  But he had to forget.
He walked back to Jamie.
"Well.  Now can we get back to getting me inducted into the Valkaries?"

The End
