PostSubject: random searches   Mon Apr 10, 2017 1:01 am


One of the more interesting duties Rowan had as a centurion, was the random searches of cohort barracks. Since centurions couldn't search their own cohorts, Rowan and Christian had been tasked in going through the four rooms that the 1st cohort lived in.

It was fairly early, around 10, and the first cohort had started their drills. Rowan stood at the first door, peering into the barrack. It was really clean, especially for a bunch of teenagers. She knew the kids in her barracks were fairly neat, but not this neat. Another thing about the first cohort barracks, was the fact that everything seemed to be nicer in there. The beds looked newly purchased, the floors were polished, there were even fancy rugs going down the center of the room. It looked like something out of a pinterest board. It kinda pissed her off.

"So," She started, looking at Christian, "You want right or left?"

Christian didn't think when he'd gotten promoted that he would be doing contraband checks. Ironically, doing these checks was good for him. He was able to hide his painkillers in places that nobody would ever think to look, and look in places that people would think were safe to hide their poisons in. Whether the vice was lethal or not.

Christian had been a Centurion long enough to search Cohort One's barracks before, and yet, they looked entirely different than the last time. Everything felt brand new, how had he never even spotted anyone moving all of the furniture? Seeing how decorated and neat these barracks were made Christian angry. Rome's segregation would truly be its own downfall.

"I think Carter sleeps on the right and Aquila sleeps on the left." Christian said. "I got the left." As though he was part of the TSA, Christian put on rubber gloves. "I'd bring the blacklight, but, it's usually more sad than it is helpful." Christian didn't wast anytime getting arms deep into furniture. "If you need to rough it up, I think they have people to fix this up. They do work every now and then."

Rowan grimanced, "Why do I have to get the boys." She said softly. They always had the grossest stuff. The things she has found has scarred her for life. She started at Carters bed, lifting up the mattress, and checking the pillow. After conducting the whole search all she had managed to find was a book titled How to Win Friends and Influence People Rowan wasn't really surprised.
"Hey," she said, holding up the book for Christian to see, "Check it."

Rowan moved onto the next bed. She had only made it to the third bed before she found pot hidden under the mattress. Whoever owned the bed wasn't very smart, since that's literally the first place anyone will check. Some of these kids were really stupid.

Christian began his search, he began at Aquila's area. He didn't take long on it; Centurions didn't have hidden vices that New Rome would kick them out for. Well, Centurions besides Christian, anyway. The Centurion glanced up at Rowan, holding that book. No way. A grin appeared on his face. "Well, at least he's not watching the movie over reading the book." Christian teased. Although, with capitalism in play, Christian truly wouldn't have been shocked.

Christian spent very little time on the mattresses, taking a glance at each, under, and inside the sheets. His priorities were within personal belongings. Christian felt behind a small section of books until he found something, and promptly took it out. It was a can of chewing tobacco. "People still do this stuff? Gross."

He could have lectured Rowan on the art of contraband, whether it was a joke or not. Instead, he decided now might be a good time to gauge some things. "So uh, your dad. What's he up to?"

Rowan paused, "Wait there's a movie?" But she brushed it off and continued searching. When she got to Helmer's bunk she had to take a break. There were some things there that she honestly didn't need to see. Her eyes needed an acid wash now. She was now scarred for life.

When she got to the last bed of this barracks, she had managed to find three joints, a pack of cigarettes, and a flask of what smelled like vodka. While she waited for Christian to finish, she sat in one of the fancy chairs that the first cohort owned.

"Same old, same old. Hosting family dinners, making money, sending his kids out to the middle of the woods." Rowan was getting a little sick of seeing his face, so she had been trying to get out of family dinners for the past two weeks. One day it was faking sick, to which her father got mad at her for not taking enough vitamin c. The next time it was Centurion duties, which he had seemed to buy. The one after that was that she had an emergency to deal with, but then when her father asked the details she couldn't come up with anything so she had to go.

Christian was looking through one bunk's possessions that were especially neat, when he spotted the a makeup compact. Christian had to give some girls credit, wearing makeup and attending drill was a battle he simply wouldn't ever even attempt. However, he had to admit it was a nifty place to hide something. Christian popped the compactor open, and surely enough, there were pills. Christian frowned, he knew his narcotics and pain killers, and these didn't look like them. Whatever they were, they weren't allowed outside of a marked bottle, so Christian took them to his currently small contraband pile.

"My dad did something like that once." Christian commented. Although, it had happened almost a decade ago now. "The last time I talked to your dad, I was twelve years old. He didn't have a lot of good things to say." Christian said, glancing over to see Rowan sitting in a chair, already waiting for him to finish. "You don't mess around, do you?" Christian asked, an eyebrow was raised at the other Centurion.

He picked up a large bottle of Ibuprofen, and dumped the pills on the bed. He gave Rowan an accomplished look. "See, I don't think the pills at the bottom were white when he bought the bottle." Christian dumped the bottle back on the bed, leaving the Ibuprofen, but taking the white pills. They could have been oxycodon, but if he was really lucky, Cohort One would have luxury in their painkillers too.

"Why do I feel like our experiences were different." She commented, cocking her head at him. "Yeah, he doesn't really have a lot of good things to say to anybody, really." Rowan was used to it at this point. She could sometimes find the compliments within the criticism, but who was she really kidding.

"Have you checked the girl's toiletries?" She asked, seamlessly changing the subject away from her father, "They like to disguise their joints as tampons. Its ridiculous, actually."

"Well, mine was in Canada, and I'm lucky enough to not have to relive it." Christian couldn't help but give the painkillers a second glance. He felt somewhat confident that he could sneak one without Rowan noticing. Still, it was unnecessary risk, and he had some level of dignity that he could wait until after the search. Still, it was tempting. She changed the subject without as much as a flinch. The new subject had Christian tilting his head. "You don't say..."

Christian kept his re-sift short, yet, he clawed out two joints. "You can have the girl's side next time." Christian said. He left all of the contraband on a bed, before approaching Rowan. "We're good to hit the next one." He offered her a hand up. "Please tell me you marked that book as contraband?"

Rowan smirked as two extra joints were found, she had spent enough time with girls to know how they think. Most guys will never go for the girls tampons. Girls will take advantage of that.

"Yeah, I think I've had enough of the boys. Especially after Helmer's bunk." She was still not willing to talk about what she saw back there. No little sister deserved that. Rowan took the hand and stood up. "You know I did," She flashed the clipboard at Christian, where she had written down inappropriate and inaccurate reading material for a leader to possess.

The next barrack was almost exactly the same, with the same fancy rugs and furniture. Part of her wondered if her dad had contributed to this. He always had that 1st cohort alumni pride. Kind of like how fraternity alumnis will donate nice things to their old frat houses. She could just picture her dad writing out a nice fat check to the kids who already had so much. Meanwhile, her cohort had a leaky roof and squeaky floorboards and warping windowsills. She couldn't even imagine the states of the other cohorts, who probably got even less attention from whoever payed for this place to stay afloat.

Christian flashed a full smile at the clipboard. He had to admit, he'd figured for so long that the Virgos and Davenports would fit in and get along like you'd imagine happened in the elite class. Yet, Christian couldn't help but feel some sort of soft spot for Rowan, at least in the sense that she broke a stereotype Christian felt very strongly towards. It wasn't just her either, other Davenports had acted in a way that conflicted Christian's cemented beliefs.

Christian didn't waste any time getting to work on the next barrack. One a shelf next to a bed, there was a bottle of rum, not even hidden. Christian picked it up, and turned to Rowan. "They aren't even trying. I really hate to think about what nights are like in this building." Christian's tone conveyed a lot of distaste, but on the other hand, it must have been nice to not have to worry so much about consequence. Christian would have tweaked if someone in his Cohort left this in the open.

He lifted up a mattress, and although Christian knew it was bound to happen, it still made him flinch when he found suggestive magazines. Christian tossed them on the bed, but it still didn't ease his mind. He took the pillowcase from the same kid's bed, and shoved them in there. "That's why we wear the gloves." Christian muttered, clearly not amused.

"Does Carter even walk in here? Or does he just ignore the fact there's booze sitting out?" Rowan walked over to the girl's side and started to look through the first bunk. There wasn't anything there so she went onto the second. Thats where she lifted the mattress and found a hole in the bottom.

"Hm, wonder whats in here." She mused before sticking her hand in, that's when she pulled out a very small pistol. "Oh my god." She held the pistol up for christian to see, making sure it was fully unloaded and that the safety was on. "I'm not going to lie, I'm seriously concerned."

Christian picked up a thick frame, with a family in it, he was pretty sure he recognized some of the people in it, they were likely a New Rome family.He popped the back off of it, and surely enough, in the frame there was a bagged layer of what sorta looked like gunpowder. Christian could only imagine what this was for. He wouldn't be surprised if Cohort One lined up the Fields of Mars with traps and won War Games by doing it. Their entire barracks felt like a cheat.

His head cocked back to Rowan, and his eyes widened at the sight of it. He dropped the bag of mystery powder on the bed and approached Rowan. "There should be a small number etched into the side. Is it scratched out?" Christian didn't like the idea of some privileged kid wandering around camp with a firearm. "Whose bed was that?"

Rowan turned the gun over, making sure that the barrel didn't point at either of them. The serial number was still there. "Either she got it legally, or she stole it and was too stupid to file off the number." To be honest, it could be either. Rowan's dad had taught her gun safety when she was twelve, but she wasn't stupid enough to bring one to camp. Besides, most people here preferred the classic weapons. The only reason to bring a weapon like this into camp was to, well, kill someone.

"Um," Rowan checked her clipboard where the bunk chart was. "Angelica Kensington." She looked to Christian "So, do we fix this ourselves, or do we take it to the praetors?" She wasn't sure what fixing it themselves would entail, but at least this girl didn't have a gun anymore.

"Could be planted." Christian offered the alternative, though he strongly doubted it. "That would be just about the only worse thing." Christian felt the search could go on hold for the moment, to focus on this bunk, Angelica's bunk. He dug into her possessions with very little care. He was hoping he wouldn't find bullets, but even if he didn't, that also increased the chances of a plant. If he did, that means someone was looking to do something horrible.

He was feeling up a mirror when he finally came up with an answer to Rowan. "As much as I'd love to give her a chance to explain herself, I don't think that's the safest idea. She should be contained first. Definitely going to need to have this whole place searched." Christian let out a sigh. "Yeah, 'pride of the legion,' and this is what we have."

Rowan helped Christian search the bunk more thoroughly. She had tipped over the side table, to see if anything had been taped to the bottom of it, when she noticed there were holes at the base of the table legs. They were small, but she was able to stick her finger in them and pull out two baggies with 4 bullets in each bag.

"Damn, this girl was planning something." Rowan stood up, leaving the table on its side. "Drills for the other cohorts end in fifteen minutes, we should go find her." She had half a mind to call in the cavalry, since the girl would no doubt try to flee the moment she noticed two centurions walking onto the fields. The bright side was that the girl would be unarmed, except for like, her usual weapons.
