A Gun for Barns: New chapter posted

Part 4, Chapter 44 is now on AO3: Where Have You Been All My Life?

Gunnar finished his own food and pushed the plate aside. "So if I put people to work, clearing the streets, getting rid of the rubble, and building new structures. Shops. Restaurants. Homes."

"That'll take money. Are you getting rid of gambling?"

"Are you kidding? People would lynch me. And they'd just go do it somewhere else. This way I can get the revenue from it, which will fund the rebirth of the city."

"The Ponix of New Vegas," Arcade murmured, gazing softly at Gunnar.

"Are you okay?"

"Sure. Go on."

Gunnar looked at him as though he didn't quite believe that.

"What happened to you, Mr. Volk?"

"Just a slight altercation, Marjorie. Nothing to worry about." Gunnar resisted touching his nose to see if it still hurt, because it probably did. "Did you take care of the problem in the White Gloves?"

"We did, Mr. Volk. I think you understand, we don't want this to be as… public… as Mortimer's judgment and execution." Marjorie delicately straightened the few papers on her desk.

"Of course. But they are taken care of?" Gunnar raised his eyebrows.

"Yes. You needn't worry about them any longer."

Gunnar leaned forward. "Let's put our cards on the table, Marjorie. I won't tolerate cannibalism in my city or its territories. Are these other 'friends of Mortimer' dead? Exiled? Imprisoned?"

He could get very used to this. Assistant to the mayor or king or whatever title Gunnar chose for himself. The chance to put into practice his own policies. The opportunity to make a real difference in the area, and got the better.

And to risk everything by getting too close to that same person in power.

"I'm going to be out most of tomorrow," Gunnar told Arcade later that night. "I've got too many visits I've put off. I hate to go looking like this, but — "

"Just say what Cass said. 'You should see the other guy.' Besides, everyone knows you've been in fights and have hit squads after you."

"True. Then there's the other tribes I still need to visit — the Brotherhood, the Boomers, and the Khans."

"And the Enclave," Arcade said quietly.

"Oh, jeez, I knew I forgot one." Gunnar sat on the old sofa, head in hands. "This is why I need that secretary. I'm sorry, Arcade." He looked up. "It's been a rough day."

"And you didn't get a lot of sleep last night, as I remember." Arcade waited a moment before continuing. "Perhaps that's what you need right now. A good night's sleep."

"You and all the Followers," Arcade sighed, sticking his hands into his coat pockets. "How are you otherwise?"

"Besides the black eye? I'm fine."

"You're sure?"

"You know, I always thought I had a trustworthy face," Gunnar said. "But people don't seem to believe me when I say I'm okay, or that nothing's wrong. Why is that?"

What's In the Box

I did *not* forget about those boxes of craft supply stuff! There are a lot of photos tho so I'm breaking it up to be easier to digest (haha).

Backstory for those who might be new or missed it on Pillowfort: I picked up 2 boxes of "misc craft and sewing supplies" at a garage sale for $7 total. Here are the pix from Box 1!

(man, I wish I had the setup to make unboxing videos and show off my art and stuff)

"What the hell happened to you?"

Gunnar blinked up at Boone standing over him. "What?" Oh, his nose. Probably it was swollen from last night. He gingerly touched it — ow, yes, still hurts, thanks.

"Who hit you?"

That woke Gunnar up more. "What do you mean?"

Boone extended a hand and helped him out of bed, then marched him to the bathroom where Gunnar could see himself. He now sported a fine black eye as well as a swollen nose with flecks of dried blood. He stared at his reflection.

"Who hit you?" Boone growled. "I'll kill them."
