The batpony gives her a bright smile, marred somewhat by her fangs. She pushes the bag of bits away "No need. I just made a huge profit at my last stop, so I'm happy to do whatever!" She glances at Nivalia "I'll give you both a ride when I'm finished here!" She looks back at Hex "Call me Vex, by the way."

Nivalia remains silent at the mention of what's happening over Manehattan, knowing full well of what's going on causes her to be distracted from the conversation. She snaps out of it when introductions are given, "Oh uh my name's Nivalia, and this is Caprica." The python retracts from the New pony and resumes with getting comfortable on her owner's shoulders. "Actually Vex, can you take me to Manehattan as well? I have some family I'd like to check on."

Vex's smile droops, but only slightly. She asks the two of them: "What's going on in Manehattan? I've been out of Equestria for a few months."

"I don't know. When I asked the ponies at the train station what was happening there, it was all somewhat cryptic. They were saying something about a skyscraper, regional emergency, then they said something about armed forces. I don't think they meant anything like the Royal Guard, I have a feeling it was the work of several mysterious armed forces. But why they are involved in some kind of emergency in Manehatten, taking place in a skyscraper, which I am quite sure there are dozens of in Manehatten, is quite frankly beyond me." she says. Although she doesn't say, she has a pretty good idea of the identity of at least one of the parties in this emergency, her future employers, that's why she needs to get to Manehatten. "Nivalia, was it? Who was it that you needed to see in Manehatten?" she asks. 'Maybe she knows something.' she says to herself.

The mention of what's going on in Manehattan does make Nivalia a bit uneasy, not so much in terms of its secrecy, but rather one of safety. "Oh uh my brother just went over there before the emergency figured. Unfortunately I haven't heard from him since and I'm getting a bit worried." There's true sincerity in her tone, but the vague answer gives little information about anything else.

Vex gives them both a bit of an exasperated look. "So, you two want me to fly you to Manehattan, where there's some sort of mysterious cryptic emergency that neither of you apparently know anything about other than it's taking place in a skyscraper? And you say it's a regional emergency; how do I know we'll even be let into the city? Or that I'll be let out again after"

"Look, I know that you have your concerns about this, but Nivalia and myself really need to get to Manehattan for our own reasons. I'm seeing some people there that if I talk to them, they could hopefully get you in and out if needed. If that doesn't work you could simply land us near Manehattan and we can just go the rest of the way on hoof. Besides, we'll never know if we don't try" she says.

Nivalia's ears fold back as Hex explains everything. "We'll be able to enter and exit the city with no hassle, I can guarantee that. And if it'll ease your mind Vex I can explain what's happening over there in more detail. Just..." The mare looks around, "Just not here, not in public. Please understand I just... can't say here."

Vex grins again. "I've faced greater adversity." Her choice of words suits her accent. "Tell me about it on the ship." She pulls a pad of paper from her cart and wheels it up to the door of the home they're in front of. She scribbles something down on it and leaves it on top of the crates before unhooking it from herself and knocking on the door. She hops up off the door step and hovers alongside her new acquaintances "Let's go then! I'll come back and visit my mum later."

"Alright then Vex, lead the way." she says. Before leaving, she glances back at the packages left by Vex. "You mentioned your mother, were those packages for her?" she asks

She gives Hex a nod "It's mostly tea and trinkets." She allows a brief silence to pass. "We like to exchange stories about our work. She's a night guard for the city."

Vex leads her new acquaintances through the streets of Canterlot, back toward the airship dock overlooking the vast landscape of Equestria. They'll have to fly over or around the mountains to travel East to Manehattan.

((Not to control anyone else's character or anything, but I feel this just needed a quick bump, and I wanted to state more explicitly what Vex intends to do. If anyone has anything they want to do before returning to the airship, feel free to interrupt Vex and do that.))

Nivalia looks up at the vast airship with some amazement, the last one she'd been on was several years ago. "Woah, nice ship. I have to admit I'm rather excited, it's been a while." Caprica however shows less enthusiasm, slithering into her saddlebag and rolling up to sleep.

Arriving at the airship dock, Hex takes in the sights of the airships and the vast land of Equestria. "A very impressive ship indeed. I was on a commercial airship not too long ago, I wonder how this is going to go." she says. "You say we're going east over the mountain to Manehatten? Ok, but be careful. I heard stories of how there is supposedly a large winged creature that lives on the other side of the mountain, a red beast, waiting in its cave, filled with treasures for any unsuspecting travelers. Its a tall tale, I know, but with everything that has happened in the past, I wouldn't be surprised if the tales were true."

Vex flashes Hex a grin "Oh yeah, his name's Trevor!" She leaps up and loops nimbly over the port-side bow of the ship's relatively small deck. The balloon itself is far larger than its payload, and is reinforced with plate metal. On either side of the hull of the ship are a pair of apparently magically driven propellers. Vex returns a moment later through a small door that swings down onto the dock to form a ramp "Come inside!"
The room just beyond the door to the dock is filled with wooden crates, cluttered with a few trinkets and curios from around the world among them. It smells strongly of tea.
