(OOC: So here's the deal! RP is closed TO THE MAX, so unless you're one of the people that got the OK from this here thread
, don't post here.)
It was a fine day in Los Angeles, late August of the year 2040. There were light clouds, but not even a hint of rain. A light, soothing breeze cooled down the bustling streets. The air was crisp, recycling technologies having long ago cleansed the air of smog. Indeed, it seemed that all was right with the city.
Sure, there was the occasional crime here and there, but the police reformation that took place after the earthquake kept most of it down. Wellâ€¦most of the human crime, that is. There were far more sinister events taking place than the occasional mugging. Biotechnical constructs designed to aid humanity, known as Boomers, were doing far more damage than the human criminals could hope for, and thanks to the efforts of their manufacturers, almost no one knew anything about itâ€¦
A man gazed at the clock on the wall of his shop. He had recently put an ad in the paper, looking for an assistant. He was getting old, and could no longer keep up the effort to make his mechanic service look like a normal business. Not on his own, at least. He could, of course, ask for one of those girls
to assist him, but they all had normal jobs. It just wouldn't feel right. He could also just close the shop and work off his considerable savings, but then the large part orders he made would start to look suspicious.
Mechanic seeking reliable assistant.
the ad read. Short term or long term. Minimum qualifications required, just good references and a willingness to learn.
Roldo Gomez, an aging Portugese man, looked at his clock. He had counted on the fact that it was one of the few low-training jobs available that wasn't
taken up by a boomer to net him an assistant within a reasonable time. Either way, it didn't change the fact that he had double-booked himself today. Soon, he was scheduled to interview a hopeful employee. Soon, he was also scheduled to have a meeting with his less legal employees about certain...updates...to their...industrial equipment. Hopefully, they would be patient enough to take some more time out of their busy day to allow him to finish the interview first.
