"I’m Isabel." She took her enemy’s hand and shook it, a grin spreading over her face. There was comfort in knowing that, though this was someone who could have her death configured in the future, there was at least one person around here who was friendly enough to share their presence with the single member of RED team. The Spaniard retreated her hand, eager to keep the BLU busy for the sake of any companionship. “It’s tan bueno to see that BLU isn’t so lonesome any more. I was beginning to think that this entire place was going to turn up quiet and empty and the rest of us would just be forgotten.”
"I see what you mean," Tammy said looking around the nearly empty base. Tammy wasn’t sure what to expect when she came to Lakeside but it seemed that the RED who resided at the desert base was nice enough. It was ashame they weren’t on the same team, but money was money. And Tammy wasn’t paid to make friends. But as long as she was off the clock, she could picture her and Isabel getting along fine. Tammy then asked, "What did you do here all by yourself? A one man team, all alone… doesn’t it get, boring?"
Isabel paused for a moment, looking back over her shoulder at the looming silhouette of her home. Walking the halls there was eerily quiet, and every room was clean and waiting for a new occupant to come and claim it as theirs. She didn’t dare play music or listen to the radio in fear that whatever was keeping the calm in her base would awaken and tear RED apart. It was a probably a silly fear, but she believed in monsters. Not to mention she was also missing important radio broadcasts of her favorite show because of it.
"Yes, it gets boring…" She sighed and placed her hands behind her back, lacing her fingers together. "There’s nothing much to do. Every now and again, I’ll come outside, but there isn’t much to do out here unless we’re killing each other, either. So, all in all, I don’t do anything." She laughed an airy, useless laugh that sounded a bit more force than she intended it to be. "I guess, you know, el hogar es donde está el corazón. There must be something in there to keep me in love, right?”
"Well, you know," Tammy paused unsure of herself, "If you get a little lonely when were off the clock, don’t be hesitant to come find me. I mean, I’m the only one at my base too…" She stopped herself and added sheepishly, "Management won’t mind. Probably."
The medic smiled and gave the pyro a little wave as soon as she saw her. “Hallo!” she greeted gleefully.
The pyro gave a little wave back in reply and inquired, “How’s it going, doc?”
"A little bored. I already completed my filing und cleaning ages ago." she sighed and blew the strands of hair off her face. "Und you?"
"I’m doing fine," the pyro replied. "Just making my nightly rounds."
"Mind if I go with you?" Shamsel offered. "I don’t want to be cooped up in my office again. Let’s go!" she stepped aside to let the pyro walk first, and waited.
The pyro smiled underneath her mask and said, “I know just the place to go!” She grabbed the medic’s hand and lead her down the hall.
- Because Nicole is a butt and can’t decide on ANYTHING, we’re autobalancing our BLU engineer back onto RED. Sorry, BLU!
We know it must suck being all alone over there, Tammy. But, here’s a gift from us to you to ensure that you still love us!
Which you have to. It’s in your contract.
