||I've held up my end. You tell the King that I'm willing to listen to him.
||This isn't really a good time. What did you want?
||Welcome. There's food and water here for any citizen of the NCR. Please, have some.
||Yes, was there something else you needed?
||The King wants to help with the relief effort.
||Like he helped the envoy we sent? No thanks.
||It's not something I'm willing to discuss. Now if you'll excuse me, there are other people waiting.
||I'm sorry, I didn't mean to pry.
||It's no problem, just something I'd rather not think about. Now, I should get to the other customers.
||Do you serve food to Locals as well?
||No, I'm afraid we don't. Do you have a friend you wanted to bring in?
|Do you serve food to Locals as well?
||Like I said before, we don't. And I'm not inclined to discuss why.
||Yes, but I was afraid he wouldn't get served.
||You were right, but here, take another helping for your friend. It'll be our secret.
||No, I was just curious.
||Well, now you know. Enjoy the food.
||Why don't you serve Locals?
||That's not really a pleasant topic of conversation. Let's just say we have our reasons.
||Julie Farkas told me to ask. She said it was important.
||You know Julie? Not everyone in the NCR sees eye-to-eye with the Followers, but they're okay in my book, mostly because of her.
||If you really want to know, we sent an envoy to the King offering to coordinate the relief effort.
||And the King refused?
||In a manner of speaking. Our envoy was brutally beaten, and only barely survived. My superiors ordered the relief mission scrapped.
|And the King refused?
||I managed to get clearance to carry out the mission anyway, but with greatly reduced support.
||Now there's not enough supplies to go around even if I wanted to serve the rest of Freeside, which I don't.
||But that's all in the past now. I should get back to work. Say hi to Julie for me.
||Our envoy was brutally beaten, and only barely survived. My superiors ordered the relief mission scrapped.
||Let me guess, something bad happened to the envoy.
||The man was brutally beaten, and only barely survived. My superiors ordered the relief mission scrapped.
||I thought I'd save everyone some time and just kill you.
||That wasn't him. He didn't even know an envoy was sent.
||Then he should watch his back. We know for a fact that the envoy made it to their headquarters.
||Still, if the King's willing to deal with us, perhaps we can work something out. I'll tell my men to stand down.
||Thanks for the food.
||You're quite welcome. If you meet anyone who needs food or water in the area, please tell them about this place.
||Are you with the NCR military?
||Yes, I'm a major in the supply corps, which is where this food and water comes from.
