When I entered Lexington, the first building I recognized was the “Super Duper Mart”. I didn’t go inside the night I made my way to the Corvega factory, but I put it on my list to come back. I don’t know why; I always hated shopping before. I guess I thought there my be some useful supplies in there still. So when I came close to the store on my way to the Starlite Drive In, I decided I’d take a peek.
I wasn’t expecting to find much. Maybe some fuel or bits of salvage. I tell you what I wasn’t expecting – to find the place littered with Ghouls. I looted several bodies and grabbed ammo and other useful bits. When I entered the back storage room, all hell broke loose. These Ghouls weren’t dead. They were playing possum and lured me right into a trap. I was surrounded by them and what I can only assume was their leader – a Feral Ghoul Roamer that nearly killed me – twice. Luckily, before I left Sanctuary, I fitted my double-barrel with a new sight. That made it more deadly and I needed it in that place.
When it was over, there were a dozen dead Ghouls scattered all over the remains of the store. But Ghouls weren’t the only bodies left there. I found the remains of two Minutemen: Josh and Emma. I can only guess the trap the Ghouls laid for me didn’t work out for them. I found Josh in an office, surrounded by Ghoul corpses. His weapons and ammo stash beside him. Emma didn’t fair as well in the Garage outside.
I took their weapons, a holotape I found on Josh and both of their hats, symbols of the Minutemen. I figured that Preston would know what to do with them. The weapons could be used by the settlers to defend Sanctuary. I took the ammo for myself. I thought I better keep it for the other things I wasn’t expecting as I traveled.
I’ve not listened to the holotape yet. I think I’ll wait until I’m safe and alone to hear what Josh had to say. I’ll decide what to do with it after I hear it.
