As the assorted group entered and made there way through the garage Joseph and Nov-dog gazed around the building before looking back to one another. "Just like the vehicle sheds back home?" Joseph ask with a growing grin. "Yep." November chuckled, known they were thinking the same thing.

As they reach the tank the two simply stared at it, barely containing there laughter at the sorry state of it. They had seen worse, but it was still a rolling pile of sheet metal.

Jack watched Cpl Briggins struggle to get the door open, an anticlimactic and mildly humorous affair, until he finally opened it and revealed their ride. The Private's face visibly fell once he saw the sorry thing that was supposed to pass as a Chimera. He didn't doubt Briggins that it would run but he was more concerned with other things. "We're supposed to be on a 'patrol', right?" Jack asked, "I know our vehicles are in rough shape but wouldn't the gate guards expect something a little more.... serviceable for a patrol?"

Lourn had managed to sneak out of the Medicae earlier that night, though not out of any promise of food. In all honesty, he had no idea about the trip the others were about to take. He simply wasn't able to sleep with the constant sounds of the Medicae, and had decided to find a secluded area to finally shut his eyes, that place being this particular shed, or rather the beat-up Chimera that is in the shed. He'd just managed to doze off, and was snoring, albeit softly, when Briggins opened the door and led the group inside.

Briggins turns to Jack and shrugs, with a sheepish look on his face, "You haven't been on patrol recently have ya? She may be in rough shape," he pats the Chimera as if to cheer the machine spirits up, "But she's functional. Most vehicles on patrol can't even promise that. Usually just the guns work."

One of the metal plates falls off with a loud clang echoing through out the garage.

"...I'll admit, she's still a piece of junk on the outside. But inside, the seats are actually cushioned. I think she was a command vehicle before she was re purposed." He moves around to the back and opens the hatch, "I bet ya, they're more comfortable than your bunk, you could even sleep on the seats!"

Surprisingly, the inside is carpeted and the seats are indeed cushioned. They're not in the greatest condition, but still quite pleasant, minus clearly someone bled out in one corner of the carpet leaving a permanent crimson stain.

But the most notable thing inside is a one Lourn Germain.

Briggins says nothing for a moment. Then he turns his attention back to the others, "See? Bet he's quite rested!"

"Most of my patrols have been on foot," Jack admitted when Briggins asked if he's been on a patrol. He tried to assure them that the vehicle still worked but then a plate fell off, causing Jack to visibly wince from the sound but also because his confidence fell as well. He’ll be surprised if this thing didn’t stall out or fall apart on their way there.

When the Corporal mentioned the carpeted floor, cushioned seats, and the possibility of it being a command vehicle, the Cadian actual began to look kind of impressed. He was curious how he managed to get his hands on this but, looking at the outside, it wasn’t hard to imagine and he was sure he didn’t want to know the real answer. When he opened the Chimera to reveal the sleeping man inside, the Private was understandably surprised even though Briggins played it off nonchalantly.

Jack looked blankly at the scene for a moment, not quite sure how to react until he managed to say, “Well, a nap sounds nice.”

If the plating hitting the ground didn't wake him, Briggins certainly did. He lay still as his mind raced, trying to remember where he was. Once he'd figured that out, and realized that the other people in there were most likely other Guardsmen, he slowly got up and poked his head out the back, looking at the crowd, a sheepish grin on his face.

"Um, hi. Can I, uh, can I help you? Eheh."

The two Bacarans half listen to the man's attempt to defend his chose of transportation. It would be a miracle if the front gate didn't send them straight back to the workshop. But as the hatch was opened, it only took the two a moment to look before there attention was well and truly grasped. The floor was carpeted.. this rolling scrap heap had a carpeted floor?!

Back on their home world of Te Harinui, carpets are a rarity, only affordable by the most highly played foremen or governor assistant and that would only be enough to cover the floor space of their own little offices. Both the local bar and the meeting house had carpet too, but those were worn and didn't cover the entire floor space they occupied. And yet people would still prefer to sit on them rather than take a seat on a chair. Both Joseph and November ignored the discussion as they took a knee at the hatch to get a closer view of the carpet. It was good quality by the looks of it, and other than the blood stain was still in good nick. Joseph extended his arm and began to stroke the soft material.

Joseph finds the carpet to be quite soft. Not fancy manor or planetary Governor soft, but soft none the less. It was clear either someone either was considered a high class officer, or rather someone wanted them to think they were a high class officer.

And either that someone was dead, or this Chimera wouldn't be here.

Briggins gives Lourn a knowing smile. "That depends on if you're willing to trade. You don't tell anybody about us and we won't tell anyone about you. In fact, you can come with us."

Signalling to the others to follow, he hops into the chimera, making his way to the driver's cabin.

It too is surprisingly clean and well maintained. There's a few nicks and dents in the console and the controls, but they're well polished and the driver's seat is clearly in the best condition compared to the others. It almost looks like and officer's chairs rather than a driver's seat.

The carpet was indeed pleasant to the touch, bring back memories for the Bacaran of better days. As everyone hoped in, the two Bacarans removed their packs and elected to sit on the carpeted floor. They both seemed quite content with their chosen position (away from the blood stain in the corner though).

That was an extremely good deal in Lourn's opinion. Having at least someone covering his back would be nice if someone caught him out and about this late.

"Sounds good to me. Where we going?" he asked while making room for the Bacarans.

Jack simply obeyed, walking inside the Chimera without addressing the man inside or anyone else for that matter. He decided to take a seat in the corner across from the blood stain. He wasn't bothered by the sight of blood, he was Cadian after all, but he wasn't sure how fresh it was or how thoroughly it was cleaned. Blood made things a bit sticky and he didn't want that on his boots or his precious bag. He set the said bag down between his legs, not trusting anything but himself to keep it safe as he waited patiently for things to get going.

Marv gives Lourn a crooked smile, "Just out to lunch to Rustlands's Farm for lunch. I'd give you the flyer but mine got confiscated days ago. Locals are having some sort of shindig."

"Alright," he rubs his hands together, "No more dawdlin'. Let's get this party started."
