Bar Brawl At The Al Horreya

Al-Horreya

The Grid-----> > > > > THE LOST GENERATION < < <


Coordinates : 2 1

High ceilings and open-panel windows barely keep the heat from being stifling. Flimsy tables are packed into the place in nothing even remotely resembling "rows", the floor dirty with bootprints, spit stains, and crushed shells. Crowded and lively, the corners are always packed with people crammed into their tables and booths, talking and arguing, smoking shisha, and drinking questionable liquid from dark glasses. Pockets of the room frequently erupt into heated shouting. To be served in here, one can wait a good hour for a server to bother to notice a waving hand, or try one's luck haggling at the crowded bar.

It is currently dusk.

South to Khan el-Khalili <S>

The days of training in Egypt are coming to an end. Soon the soldiers will be shipping out of Cairo to join the real war effort. And quite a lot of them are spending their last days at the Al-Horreya bar. Soldiers of all nationalities have crowded into the place, drinking and carousing before their time to die comes. A few scantily-clad local girls are scattered here and there, making some money before the boys ship off. The more expensive ones promise they are clean. The haze of smoke and the sounds of mixed yelling and chatter in a hundred different accents fill the place.

Amongst the crowd is on Alistair Lydagte, combat medic. He sits with a small crowd of soldiers but doesn't seem to share their loud and boisterous attitudes. The young gentleman doesnt seem all that much interested in any of the lewd ladies, and simply sits quietly sipping on a glass of some foggy unknown brown liquid that he assumes is beer. Whatever it is, it tastes fowl, but it takes some of the edge off. In one hand he is nursing an unsmoked cigar, and occasionally rolls it between his fingers idley.

Stepping in from the outside, a certain David MacPherson looks around the room rather carefully. The New Zealander looks a bit at ease, nodding to a person here and there, without talking more than a few muttered words with them.

The red light houses seem to be rather empty, and so a crowd of ANZACs enters the bar. Patrick, the oldest of the group, leads them in. Taking a moment to take his hat off, he glances about, ignoring the working girls as the dusty men head for the bar. Pints are distributed promptly, the older man taking his and chugging at least half, "Ahhhhhh…" he burps, grinning a bit as he looks around him, "Smells a bit like Pommy in here…" he muses.

A group of English soldiers are drinking at a table neighboring Alistair's. They've obviously been there for a long, long time, judging by the empty bottles and very loud, slurred talk coming from them. But, at Patrick's musing, the noise from them stops dead. "'Eh!?" Wenham hollers, turning blurrily in Patrick's direction. "Wassat about Pommys, then? I don't speak no pilferer Aussie braying, so I couldn't make it out."

Patrick holds up a hand, "Easy easy… don't need to get your skirts in a ruffle… go back to your bottle… lord knows you need it." he grins, "Get a few more in you and you might be able to start drinking with us, eh?" he chuckles, nudging one of his comrades.

"Aw, shit." Alistair says turning in his seat slightly. He downs the last of his not so sweet tasting beer and sets the empty glass down. It feels too early for this. They're on the last few days of training so of course all the soldiers are itching for a fight, but it's the last thing the medic wants to deal with. He's already had an NCO's blood on him and Alistair doesn't feel like having to deal with more before the battles even been made. A sigh of relief escapes him when Patrick seems to try and defuse the situation.

David shakes his head as he listens to the sound, before he prepares to go get himself something to drink. Or at least trying to get hold of it.

Walsh has arrived.
Walsh arrives from the South to Khan el-Khalili.

The days of training in Egypt are coming to an end. Soon the soldiers will be shipping out of Cairo to join the real war effort. And quite a lot of them are spending their last days at the Al-Horreya bar. Soldiers of all nationalities have crowded into the place, drinking and carousing before their time to die comes. A few scantily-clad local girls are scattered here and there, making some money before the boys ship off. The more expensive ones promise they are clean. The haze of smoke and the sounds of mixed yelling and chatter in a hundred different accents fill the place.

A table of drunken Englishmen is making a lot of racket and noise, though they've stopped celebrating to glare at Patrick. A couple of them get unsteadily to their feet.

Wenham, one of the drunken Englishmen, is among those standing and glaring. He huffs. "Skirts? You calling us ladies, Aussie?" He laughs and sways. "Big talk now, but we all know who'll be doing the real fighting when we get up against the Mehmets. You'll be hiding under the real soldiers' skirts when the action starts."

Patrick cracks his knuckles. "Allright, I warned ye pommy. This is our bar an ye ain't welcome, if you're not gunna leave peacefully, you're gunna leave unconcious!" he adds. Seeing Jules move in already, he rolls his eyes, "Get'em!" he shouts, moving on Wenham.

«Ground Combat» Wenham moves to engage Patrick in close quarters combat, and succeeds!

"Sorry, sorry," David offers, with a grin as he looks between Wenham and Patrick. "I must apologize for this little misunderstanding. But you know how those West Islanders mix up words. He meant to say shirts, really." Wenham's comment makes him shake his head a bit, "Do you mean that you guys are not the real soldiers, or that you actually wear skirts, then?"

«Ground Combat» Patrick attacks Wenham with his bare hands! Patrick misses!

Wenham ignores David's attempt at peace-making and lunges for Patrick. Drunkenly. His buddy, Jules, likewise lunges at Pete. "Bloody pilferers!" he shouts, swinging. "We'll show who the real fighting men are." The swinging starts unimpressively. Well, they are drunk.

Patrick swings back at Wenham a few times. "Hold still!" he barks, pushing up against the englishman as he takes another wide swing. The bar turns into a bit of an upraor as Aussies face off against the english.

Walsh enters in, hands shoved into the trouser pockets. Teeth seem grit together as if in skeptical anticipation, though the fellow seems to form a mild smile at the sight of his troopmates. "A last drink before we ship out for the front, mates?" It's not the usual Aussie twang, one of those bloody Norfolk Island diggers." As the fisticuffs break out, he calls out. "A sixpence on the one from Blighty!"

Alistair is, alas, ignored. His countrymen have worked themselves up into a proper brawl. Wenham aims a fist at Patrick's stomach, and connects, though he takes one in the chest for his trouble. That blow sends him stumbling backwards, landing on his former table with a crash.

Patrick takes the slug to the gut with an "Oof" sort of sound, rebounding with a quick few jabs aimed both high and low at the englishman. Given the bar is pretty crowded there isn't much room to move at all.

David shakes his head as he sees how things are going here. "Okay…" he mutters, moving forward in Wenham's direction as well. "This is crazy…" he mutters.

«Ground Combat» Patrick attacks Wenham with his bare hands! Wenham suffers 1 bruise damage to his right arm.

Wenham finally goes down, crashing into that same flimsy table he fell on before. He breaks the thing this time. The Al-Horreya furniture is not too sturdy.

Alistair wasn't quite looking forward to this — "He's down, for crying out loud!" The Medic tries to get between the downed drunkard and the rest of the brawlers.

Walsh waves his arms around, making a rather crude imitation of a Maori Warrior's tongue challenge. A break out in laughter with teeth showing with the tongue in a grin at Wenham.

Patrick breathes heavily as Wenham goes down. He straightens, refraining from another kick or punch as he adjusts his tunic, smirking at Alistair, "Oh grow up." he scolds the younger one, "Let's have another beer eh?" he calls to the others, turning to return to the bar.

David throws a few more punches at Wenham before the man goes down. He then shakes his head at Patrick. "Don't forget those of us from the right islands, okay?" he calls out.

Pete grins as the man hits the ground. "That'll teach yeh." He moves back over to the bar and takes a drink of his beer. "Oy, Medic, you should probably check the other guy."

"I'm not the one needin' to grow up. You .. you.." Alistair says towards Patrick as he turns away, his voice trailing off. "Brute." The young medic looks flustered, and partially guilty that he even got involved in the small scuffle. He turns around and begins looking over the two injured men
Walsh smiles hearing David, offering the Kiwi a nod. "'Ave one on me, digger." as he follows him over towards the bar.

Jules finally comes around, just in time to see Wenham go down. And Walsh sticking his tongue out at them. "Bloody Arsey…" he growls, grabbing a broken bottle and pursuing him to the bar.

«Ground Combat» Jules moves to engage Walsh in close quarters combat, but fails.
«Ground Combat» Alistair moves to engage Jules in close quarters combat, but fails.

nages to close in after Jules is occupied blocking David's swing. The young man from Norfolk Island snorts and swings a fist, wildly, himself. Not a trained brawler by any means.

«Ground Combat» Patrick attacks Jules with his bare hands! Patrick misses!

The young combat medic is obviously not much of a brawler. He recklessly swings his hands balled up into fists at Wenham. It's by pure coincidence and drunken luck that Wenham doesnt strike the medic himself. Now it's panzy englishman fighting panzy englishman, it wouldn't be surprising if everyone suddenly stopped to face them and watch the amusing fight.

Jules is locked in an epic battle with Pete. Sort of. The roundhouse punch he attempts hits empty air.

The combat medic lets out a cry as the drunken Englishman strikes Alistair in the chest. Hasn't even seen real combat and he's already injured. Groaning the medic launches another punch.

Wenham keeps going at Alistair, perhaps thinking the medic an easy target. "So, you like your Aussie friends, do you? You'll be as ugly as them when I get through with you."

Jules is hit hard across the jaw. He spits out a bloody tooth. It joins the other bloody tooth on the floor. He may have to pay more for one of the whores looking like that.

Pete growls as he notices the Medic get hit. "You cheating bastard!" Pete moves to attack Wenham.

Alistair snorts, "At least I'm not a blood idiot like-" Wenham's fist connects with Alistair's face and the medic lets out a cry. Oh like hell Alistair will bandage Wenham up if he happens to see him on the field. The medic is getting right angry now.

«Game» David changes his style to Banzai!

Walsh swings, managing to connect but the scrawny lad's not putting alot of fight into it. If the fellow was a Kraut or Turk, might be different.

The Medic doesnt stop and he lets out a kick, hitting the man while he's down. He doesn't seem like a proper gentleman anymore.

Pete howls in rage and moves to attack Wenham. "I'll teach you to attack a damn Medic!" He swings as hard as he can at Wenham.
