1286 [NH] [AM] [KF] and [AY]
[AM]: Vault-Tec calling!
[NH]: You're really funny, aren't you.
[AM]: I just wanted to say hi is all.
[NH]: Then why didn't you call?
[AM]: You blocked my number.
[NH]: You could get one of your government hacker whatevers to bypass it or something.
[AM]: That wouldn't be fair, now would it.
[NH]: You did say we'd never cross paths ever again that day in June, didn't you?
[AM]: It's hard to fulfil that promise with our history, and I just wanted to visit to ask what's up.
[NH]: I'll shut this door on you.
[AM]: You don't have to say what you don't want to tell, but can I at least come in?
[KF]: Yes, you may.
[NH]: Really? You had to say that.
[KF]: Yes, I know he's a horrible person. He's still a person, though. Just let him in.
[NH]: Alright, come on.
[AM]: Thanks. Now, how's everything been for you two?
[NH]: Good until y-
[KF]: Great, very good, thanks. We've had some close calls, though.
[AM]: Really? Get in some fights or bad gangs or whatnot?
[KF]: You could say that, yeah.
[AM]: That must've been bad, sorry to hear y'all've had troubles.
[NH]: Are we done?
[AM]: Yeah, I can be. Well, nice seeing y'all are doing fine here in sunny California.
- knock on door
[AM]: Uhh, expecting someone else?
[NH]: No, at least I don't think so.
- [NH] opens door
[AY]: Vault-Tec calling!
[AM]: I made that same joke.
[AY]: I know.
- [AY] stares are [AM] for 2 seconds
[AY]: Anyways! Nate, there's something I need to tell you.
[NH]: Is it a private matter?
[AY]: Yes, if you don't mind. It's nothing Kari or this guy needs to worry about, I'm not making moves on you.
[KF]: I wasn't too worried about something like that.
- [AY] and [NH] walk to [NH]'s room
[AY]: Have you heard the story of the doctor?
[NH]: Yeah, I don't like that show.
[AY]: No no no, the Japanese legend of the doctor, Isha.
[NH]: Again, I don- wait, what?
[AY]: Yeah. I've somehow avoided seeing it, and I know you are.
[NH]: Then why'd you ask me?
[AY]: I wasn't sure if you knew what you were seeing.
[NH]: I did, thanks.
[AY]: You might want to watch what you think about this coming 2087.
[NH]: What's that supposed to mean?
[AY]: You were dead, and the more time that goes by, the more irritated you seem. I thought your death you talked about was this New Year's, and I was right.
[NH]: To be technical, it was the 10th.
[AY]: In Japan, the New Year's season is the first to the 10th. I was right!
[NH]: You just fucked my mind again, didn't you.
[AY]: It's the best way to get info out of someone, but anyways, that's all I wanted to say.
- [AY] and [NH] return
[AY]: Remember what I said, it'll help.
[AM]: Oh, I suppose we missed something.
[NH]: I really hate you. Did he say anything to you?
[KF]: Not really, no. Just asked what I thought of California.
[AM]: I don't think I've met you before, miss.
[AY]: Is "miss" used for someone who's not married or just not in a relationship?
[AM]: Truth be told, that's a good question. I'm Maximus, Aaron Maximus.
[AY]: Nice to meet you Mr. Bond- I mean, Aaron.
- about 5 seconds pass
[AM]: And you are...?
[AY]: Oh, sorry. Aki Yamada, yoroshiku onegaishimasu!
[AM]: Yoroshiku onegaishimasu.
[AY] (aside to [NH]): Well shit, he knows Japanese.
[KF]: Oh, you speak Japanese?
[AM]: Yeah, I know an ok amount.
[AY]: Kono hito wa chotto okoru to omoimasu.
[AM]: I know he is, alright. Never gets old.
[AY]: Nothing concerning.
[AM]: I think I'll be heading out. Nice getting to know how y'all are doing and nice meeting you, Aki.
[AY]: Same here, I'll be leaving and nice meeting you, Aaron.
- [AM] leaves
[AY]: What an egghead, that guy.
- [AY] leaves
