The gang settled into the living room while Hal explained the details of the race.
"For those who don't know this race, it is one of the most challenging races on Earth."
" What a funny name for a race," exclaimed Rose.
"Yes, well it dated back in the 20s, there was a epidemic rising in the population of a small town. Children were dying and because of the climate in Alaska, they weren't able to fly or sail or deliver the serum for the children. The weather was harsh in those winter days and well there wasn't much hope. " Hal informed.
" Then a group of dogs travelled 1,150 miles to get the serum right?" Snake filled in.
"Yes, in fact, the sleigh team battled against mother nature just to save those children"
Meryl looked at Snake and gave him a little smile. As weird as it might sound, Snake returned the smile and then glared at Liquid.
"This race sounds pretty easy chaps. I think I'll win it for my love. " Liquid said as he pulled Meryl closer to him.
" Don't. Touch. Meryl. " David muttered.
"Hey lighten up "bro"."
" Ok guys this is the rulesthey haveset up for the participants.."
" The race will start in a week, to prepare you guys for getting supplies, the right sleigh, train the dogs...None of you are allowed to use stereoids on your dogs or on yourselves."
"I don't need some damn steroids." Snake told them.
"Snake, as rude as this might sound...You are getting old, and a little bit...fat" Rose told the old man.
"Hey who are you calling old?" Snaked looked at himself and did notice a little bit of fat begging to form.
"You better give up now and save the embarassement of getting the US Army to search for your old corpse" Liquid laughed.
" At least I didnt get my arm cut off and got it attached to an old man's body." Snake sneered, " I bet you guys had some " fun " in private.'"
" I wont talk if I were you, you bloody bastard."
" Everyone just SHUT UP!" Raiden exploded. " Both of you. Especially."
Both man settled down and remained silent, Otacon took this moment and continued.
" The contenstants must finish the race in less than 2 weeks. Any use of spying on each other, bringing weapons is illegal and you will be disqualified."
The brothers muttered and mentally took off some weapons they had in meind bringing.
" Also, in case you guys have a low level of rations or water, there is plenty of substitues in the wild. You guys wont starve to death or anything."
" Hey geek, is there a prize money offered besides this pretty lady? " Liquid informed and winked at a blushing Meryl.
" Absolutely, Participants from all over the world will be there. The first prize is 72 000 Dollars American."
" Pffft I get more than that when I - " Snaked looked around and decided to shut up.
" Well I can tell you who is entering the contest. " Hal searched the web sites database and noticed something.
"This is a shock."
" What is it Hal? " Raiden asked, " Someone we know?"
"Yes, apparently someone we knew is desperate for the reward."
" Let's see, I see...Revolver Ocelot.."
This is going to be thougher than I thought, Snake pondered, already I am up against My clone bro, now a psycopath russian, what a great way to start things.
" Anyways, I am printing some more stuff both of you must know about, some stores you can go check out and the prices."
Hal handed the papers without glancing at them and waited for the 2 men to read it.
" Euh Hal...you gave us the wrong papers...I mean erm..documents."
Liquid just snickered," Oh Hal, I never knew you were sucha dirty boy."
Rose and Raiden peeked at the papers and their eyes bulged from their sockets.
As for Meryl, she blushed an dhide her face in the sofa.
" Hey whats wrong with everyone?"
"Here take a look for yourself."
Hal took the paper and turned red.
" I can..explain guys."
" Sure Hal sure, look its too late for explanations..and we are quite disturbed with this..piece of document."
Otacon looked at the document and sighed.
" Guys this is just hentai, what wrong with it?"
" What's wrong? Whats wrong?" Rose cried out. " Whats wrong is you are staring at young girls who barely hit puberty!"
"They are 18!"
" Hal have you looked at them closely? If you dont stop looking at dirty pornography it might damage your brain."
" Snake has some why aren't you guys complaining?"
" Because we all know snake is some old pervert and he has issues. " Raiden filled in.
"Hey I wouldnt talk if I were you, I remembered when you wre nekkid in the last mission, and you aren't that " big"." Snake chuckled, " The ladies just can't get enough of me."
" You pig."
" Everyone maybe you guys should relax? Hal just have a disturbing fetish..." Meryl suggested.
" Oh thank you Meryl, Now you think I am a pedophile." Otacon retorted.
" Well you do come from Japan, and you know guys there have a little bit of lolitta syndrom. " Raiden told his friend.
" Since when did this start? We are talking about a race and not some silly porno I accidently gave you."
" It's alright hal I understand," Liquid put his arms over his shoulder, " In your dreams, you want to bang up a little young girl, but in reality, we all know you will end up a virgin.."
Hal remained silent.
" For you information, I am NOT a fucking virging."
Everyone stood suprised and was so shocked.
" I Lost mine a long time ago."
" Hal, Cyber sex isn't considered real."
" ARGH!" Otacon screamed and stormed out of the room with his lap top.
" Bah he'll be fine." David told hisfriends.
