(sly's pov) it all started in paris. world war 3 had begin. a war between russian and french even in the us. the war is every where in europe and every soldiers dies from the russians and russia it's about to win, but before the war begin the russians announce it, so the us come up with an idea and that is placing everybody in the underground bunker and put them in cryo sleep, me and carmelita were part of that people because we love each other, my friends were also part of the plan. so we take the cryo plan and we slept with everyone who is part of the plan and we wait till the war is over. the plan was that the us government was gonna rebuild europe for free instead of spending money, so they can help the people. so we pray for the war to end
but now 3 years later
me and carmelita wake up from the cryo sleep, the pods open and we come out and we see dead bodies and we were shocked
sly: "what the?"
carmelita: "everyone is dead"
sly: "but how?"
i look straight and see my friends in the pods, turn into skeletons
sly: "oh god no! not them!"
but then a computer start lighting and talk to us
computer: "welcome sly and carmelita from your cryo sleep. is it now 3 years"
sly: "what? 3 years!"
carmelita: "this can't be"
sly: "i agreed"
computer: "playing a recording video from dr johnson"
and now the computer start playing a video from a scientist we knew name doctor johnson
dr johnson: "hello sly and carmelita, i'm recording this video to answer the question you may asked. right now by the time i'm recording, there's rebels attacking in the bunker, killing everyone including the cryo people. i feared they'll kill you, so i decided to save you by hiding you're pods behind the wall with my password, then i set the time but for some stupid reason it only set in years, i can't change the date. so i set it to 3 years, why 3 years? i don't know but it's ether that or have the both of you killed. now listen the outside world is dangerous and i hope there's a hero who can wipe out the rebels and i thought "i think they should do it" so please, be safe from them"
then i look down and see his body
carmelita: "what are these rebels?"
sly: "no idea, and the video didn't show them"
look to the door sand said to me
carmelita: "can we go outside?"
sly: "he said it's dangerous but sure"
so we walk straight and walk up stairs to the exit door and when we get there it has a hand scanner. luckily it can scan our hands so that's a plus. so i scan my hand and the door open, the sun hit us and we cover our face when we walk outside we put our hands down and we see france
sly: "holy crap"
the city of paris is destroyed, felt like a nuclear bomb hit it. everything in this city is full of destroyed buildings and dust, now it's a post apocalyptic city of paris
carmelita: "oh my god"
sly: "well this is new"
so we walk away from the bunker and we walk straight to the main city but then out of nowhere a random guy jump on me and try to kill with a knife but he get shot, i look and see a random guy in the buggy
random guy: "hey, over here!!"
i got up and the both of us went to the random guy
sly: "thanks for saving me"
random guy: "the wasteland is a dangerous place, come with me"
and we get in the buggy, i sit in the front and carmelita to the back and he drive us somewhere so we can be safe from the rebels
sly: "so, what's your name?"
james: "james, and i know who you are"
james: "you're one of the people who survived the war by being in cryo sleep"
sly: "well not only me but camrelita as well"
james: "we heard that the predators breaks in and kill the cryo people, so that meant they didn't survived. but i'm surprise that you guys survive that attack"
sly: "is that what the rebels are?"
james: "yes but no time to answer all the question. right now i'm keeping you guys safe"
so he keep driving to a safe place so about minutes later we made it there and it's a old auto store
james: "home sweet home"
sly: "an auto store"
james: "i own this years ago and since the war, i call it home with my friends"
james: "of the buggy"
and we did, we get off the buggy and went inside of the store and from the inside it's looks great
james: "we're safe for now"
sly: "you sure?"
carmelita: "thanks for your help"
james: "anytime. anyway, what's your question? i'll answer them"
sly: "what happen when the war end?"
james: "well during time when you guys in a fridge, the russians were about to win. and that's bad for the us, they feared that if they come to the us they die as well. so they lunch the nuke cause they don't have a choice, and the rest was history"
sly: "jesus..but i thought the plan was, if they win they'll rebuild paris and the rest"
james: "well not in this case, when the nuke hit they didn't get here because it's full of nuclear radiation. but now of days it's fine"
sly: "how did you guys survive?"
james: "while you were in a bunker with the cryo pods. everyone who didn't get there, build a bomb shelter. we were one of them. so there's like half of people who made it out of the war alive"
carmelita: "what are the predators?"
james: "in this wasteland there's two people, one who want to survive a post nuclear war and the one who kill people for their supplies or just for fun. those are the predator, they give us nothing but trouble. like their names, they hunt and kill prey and the worst part is they kill people and they say they rule the wasteland"
james: "wow is right sly"
i look down and think and think and think until i say a word
sly: "i think we can wipe them out"
james: "yea right, like you're the hero of the wasteland"
sly: "you wanna know how we survive?"
sly: "the bunker was full of predators, so dr johnson hide us behind a wall. we see a recording video from, he said that he hope that we're the only heroes who kill the predators"
carmelita: "we've been in cryo sleep for 3 years"
james: "at least you're lucky that you didn't die"
sly: "damn right, so trust us"
james: "alright fine. there is some favors i need you to do"
sly: "what is it?"
james: "2 days ago our supplies got stolen by the predators, and we need them like right now"
sly: "won't they ran out of it?"
james: "not really, it was a big bag full of them"
carmelita: "what's wrong with you taking it back?"
james: "we always risk our lives fighting the predators, but one of our friends got killed. so we can't take the risk anymore"
sly: "don't worry, we won't die"
james: "so glad i hear that"
carmelita: "where are they?"
james: "well i heard that they place them in the high school up north"
sly: "we'll get there"
james: "alright i put my trust on you. first you need some new clothes instead of that jumpsuits you're both wearing"
sly: "do you have them?"
james: "sure do"
so james walk to the closest and bring us some new clothes
james: "where you go"
he give a blue jacket and a jean and carmelita got a yellow sleeveless jacket with jean as well
james: "and you need these"
and what he give us is pads and a vest and a gun holster
james: "go change"
so we go to separate rooms and we put on our new clothes. what i did is i put on the vest then strap the gun holster around my chest then i put on my jacket and i place each shoulder pads on each shoulder then i put on the arm pads over the sleeves from my jacket and finally i put on the jean and finish it of with the gloves that i can see my fingers and now i'm ready to go so i came out of the room and caremlita does as well
james: "now that's is perfect, you're ready to go"
sly: "how i look?"
james: "and one more thing, you need a car. go see my brother terry at the garage outside"
and we did, we go outside and get to terry
terry: "what up"
terry: "i know you want, a new car"
terry: "well i got a surprise for you"
then he open the garage and showed me a custom made cooper van
terry: "i ad a update to this van"
sly: "how did you get it?"
terry: "james and i was walking around, when we found your safe house and we found the van. despite a nuclear bomb hit, the van is in good shape"
terry: "wow indeed sly"
terry: "drive save"
so i get on the driver seat and carmelita enter to the front seat and we're headed to the high school
