A Gun for Barns: New chapter posted

Part 3, Chapter 11 is now on AO3: Cruising Down the River.

~ ~ ~

Oh dear God. Gunnar couldn't see the far side of the camp. There were whole brahmin carcasses waiting to be butchered to feed the troops. There were troops, and more troops, and barracks, and an arena. Of course there would be an arena. People fought and died in that arena, Gunnar knew, and probably animals too.

Don't get distracted. Get an idea of troop numbers. They're well supplied here. Not like the NCR.

There were kids here. Little boys in pint-size Legionary uniforms, practicing with wooden swords and spears, and horsing around like boys do. It was almost cute, until they smacked a slave with their swords, forcing the unfortunate to cower and lick their boots.

"How long has the Legion existed?" Gunnar asked Arcade.

"Around thirty years."

"Oh, Christ." Long enough for kids to grow up and become Legionaries themselves, and the cycle repeats. How the hell could they fight something already so institutionalized?
