The Bounty (Open to All By the Way)
« on: August 19, 2015, 08:43:04 pm »
Morning arrives in Ponyville, the dew still fresh on the grass as the suns lifts from the horizon. The rays of sunlight reach through the cracks of the windows, waking up Foxtrot from his slumber. His eyes blink open for a moment, the unicorn lifting his head to look around his environment. His hoof automatically falls to his weapon, a forced habit acquired from his occupation. Getting up, he scratches his head and gathers his things. "Tinder? You there?"

Tinder is out in the living room still, she had finally managed to get a little bit of sleep but did not want to move quite yet. She's still curled up on the bed, the two daggers right next to the bed, but she's awake, has been for a while now. As she hears the voice call out she looks up and over at the bedroom door, "I'm still here! This is my house after all." She chuckles a bit as she goes to stand, wincing slightly as she does, she very quickly grabs a couple pills from her bag which is still on her back. She takes them and then puts the bottle back into the bag, knowing she shouldn't let people see them. She pushes the dog bed back to where is should be and waits for him to come out of the room.

Foxtrot exits his room with his things and closes the door behind him. "Well I haven't slept that soundly in a long time. Thanks for keeping watch, I hope your slumber went well too."

Tinder stretches out a bit and nods, "Got about an hour of sleep. That's  more then enough for me. Good to hear that you got some rest though, you looked tired last night." She stands up straight and grabs the daggers from the ground with her magic, carefully laying them in her bag. "Kitchens at the end of the hall if you're hungry. Not sure how much food is in there but I'm sure there is something you could eat."

Foxtrot nods and makes his way to the kitchen, looking around to find a bite to eat. He finds a stale muffin on the counter, more than enough for today. The unicorn returns from the kitchen and secures his things. "Well, I'm set. Anything you gotta do before we leave?"

Tinder quickly fixes her mane while Foxtrot is in the kitchen, not wanting to seem like too much of a mess. When he return she shakes her head and makes sure that her bag is on tight, "I think I'm good, I got everything I ne-" She stops mid-sentence as she remembers something and grabs the cloak from under the coffee table, shoving it into her bag with everything else, "Alright, NOW I got everything I need." She goes over to the door and pops it open, holding it open for him to exit.

"Thank you." Foxtrot says as he exits the building. The day looks sunny and bright with partly cloudy skies, low humidity today with slight chance of increase in the evening. "Wow it looks great outside. I'm sure the walk to the train station will be a pleasant one."

Tinder follows behind and shuts the door as she leaves, she yawns a bit as she stares at the sky. "Yeah, it's pretty nice. Hopefully it'll cool down a bit though, still a little too warm for me." She makes her way down over the stairs, being extra careful not to step on any of the broken ones, "And hopefully those chasing you will have left this area by now."

"Yea I really hope so." Foxtrot replies as he begins trotting down the road. "We just need to go to the train station and its a straight shot to Canterlot." He looks over his shoulder every now and then to keep an eye out for his persuers.

Tinder walks along beside him, her ears twitching at every sound, worried that the people will come back around here looking for him. "Well that's not too far at least. And it'll be pretty easy to hide in the train if we need to, could hide in the kitchen or one of the cabins. Plus, if we can get in a room I can ice up the door to seal it shut until we get there." She quickly makes a small layer of ice over a near by plant with her magic, just to show him that she can do it.

"Woah, that is pretty useful. I wish I had that ability back in the day." Foxtrot replies as he examines the frozen flora. As the two continue on their way, they get curious looks from onlookers as they walk by. "Somethings off..." Rounding a corner, the two find the entire marketplace littered with wanted posters bearing Foxtrot's face. The only saving grace is that the words are in Saddle Arabian, something nopony in town is able to read... yet. "Ah sh!t..."

Tinder smiles and nods, "It can be quite useful, I'll be sure to use it today if we need to." As soon as she sees the posters that plaster the market place her eyes go wide, acting quickly she grabs the cloak from her bag and tosses it to him. " Put that on and put up the hood. That should hide you well enough, they don't know that you have me helping you yet so I don't need to cover my face. Sorry that it's probably a bit long."

"A bit longer works just fine with me." Foxtrot says as he puts on the hood. "The guards aren't taking these down; that's not a good sign..." The unicorn begins picking up his pace as he continues across the market. "Damn it... W-where's the station?"

Tinder chuckles a tiny bit as she looks at the cloak on him, she was correct when saying it would be long on him, quite a bit too long. "Be careful not to trip on the fabric while you walk." She picks up her speed a little bit as she turns in the direction of the station, "Don't worry, you'll be fine. We just gotta get out of here and on to the train. When we get on the train it should be smooth sailing from there on out."

Foxtrot swipes his hoof over the piece of hood covering his eyes, "Yea, hopefully the situation doesn't escalate. Let's keep moving." As they continue forward, the pursuers some distance away get an anonymous tip of the unicorn's location. Saying little words, the group disperses to throw their target off guard; time was not on their side though, only a small window of opportunity is available to strike. Remaining in the back alleyways, rooftops, and lanes, the five ponies tail Foxtrot and Tinder as they make their way to the station. The weather itself seems to alter as the situation unfolds, clouds begin to gather in the sky as the distant rumbling of thunder is heard off in the distance. The townsfolk begin to gather their things and finishing their errands, most heading indoors to get away from the incoming rain. Foxtrot looks around at the changing scenery, "I may need to return your hood. My jacket has one if it starts to rain."
