Tinder looks back a bit as she hears the thunder, sighing a little as she see's people leaving. "You can keep it, I don't mind the rain and you need it way more then I do at the moment. The only problem I can see right now is that ponies are leaving, that means less of a crowd which means less cover for us." She rubs her head a bit as she tries to think of a plan to hide them in case they need it, worried that the pursuers may be closer then they think, "If we need to we could always do the classic hiding technique. Move up against a wall and make out until they pass. They still don't know me, so if I can hide you and they only see me we should be set." She chuckles a little and smiles over at him.

A light drizzle begins to fall over the town, the remaining citizens making their way indoors. The clock tower shows fifteen minutes before the next hour, the same time the next train will depart from Ponyville. A persuer on the roof spots the duo and begins to follow them from a distance. They pull out their bow and arrow, ready to use it if need be. Meanwhile, the remaining hunters spot their archer pointing in the direction of the station. As Foxtrot continues forward, he couldn't help but chuckle at Tinder's suggestion. "I'll definitely keep that in mind. Unfortunately it looks like it'll be raining soon. Hopefully well be at the station by then." Within a few minutes the two spot the station in the distance. Although it appears empty, a train still sits, ready to depart in several minutes. "We're almost there." The unicorn remains so focused on his destination, he doesn't spot the two armed ponies approaching from their right.

Tinder looks up at the sky for a second as she feels the rain, smiling ever so slightly. As they continue to walk she stays fairly alert to the things around them, letting Foxtrot focus on getting them there and her focusing on making sure they are safe. Though she doesn't notice the rooftop pony, she does indeed notice the two approaching. Her ears flicking back and forth as she notices them and quickly looks back at Foxtrot, leaning in close to his ear and whispering to him, "We have company on our right." Her horn starts lighting up as she gets hold of one of the daggers in her bag with her magic.

The drizzle increases to a heavier rain, soaking anyone staying outside for too long. The two armed ponies pick up their pace and make their way to the station, as well as the other members of their group. They pass Foxtrot and Tinder, more concerned with staying dry. Foxtrot slows his pace as they near the train station. "Ah great, of course they all meet there." He looks up to the clock, "We've got less than ten minutes, let's get the ticket and get to the train."

Tinder watches them pass and moves in a bit closer to Foxtrot, her horn glowing brighter as she gets hold of the other dagger in her bag as well, ready to protect him as soon as she needs to. "Alright, we can do this. Ticket then train, not hard. And once were on the train it's smooth sailing because I can barricade you into a safe room." She unlatches her saddle bag so it will be easier to open if she needs the daggers and other things inside of it later.

Foxtrot nods, "Yea, it'll be a piece of cake." Despite the simplicity of the plan, there are signs of worry and doubt in his tone. Once the two reach the station, Foxtrot immediately heads to the ticket booth, making sure he faces away from the hunters as much as possible. Purchasing two tickets to Canterlot, he gives one to Tinder as well. "Here you go, on the house."

Tinder waits for him as he gets the tickets, tapping her hoof on the ground and keeping her eyes on the ponies to make sure they aren't trying to come after them yet. She grabs the pill bottle from her bag and takes one while Foxtrot is gone. When he comes back she takes the tickets and places it in her bag, smiling slightly at him, "You don't have to pay for mine, I'm pretty broke but I'm not that broke, I could pay for my own. But thank you."

Foxtrot nods, "I know, it's not a matter of cost, just... getting this done asap." He looks over to the train, and the group merely standing and conversing, passing a wanted poster to any passerby. The rain has become torrential, sporadic thunder and lighting following. "Lets get out of here."

As the two make their way to the train, one of the hunters approaches Tinder, poster in hoof. Despite her accent, she asks the two with a gentle tone. "Excuse me. Have you seen this pony." She shows them the poster, Foxtrot's face and cutie Mark sketched on it; the text is foreign, and in this case a little water damaged. "He has destroyed our town, killed our families and friends. We seek justice for his crimes."

Tinder looks around as they walk. As soon as they are approached she stops to listen to the pony, taking the poster with her magic and bringing it close to her face to look at it. Though it's impossible for her to completely hide the recognition from her eyes, she's tries her best as she shakes her head slightly, "No, sorry. Never seen him before, I hope you find him though. I'm sorry to hear about your city." She levitates the paper over in front of Foxtrots face, "You seen him before hon?"

Foxtrot looks over at the poster, knowing full well what it reads despite the foreign texts; he simply shakes his head as Tinder addresses him. The questioning mare nods, "Very well, I appreciate the sincerity. You can keep that poster, we certainly have enough to go around. Have a good day." The Hunter trots back to her group, shaking her head to the others.

Foxtrot continues towards the train, presents the tickets, and awaits for Tinder to board.

Tinder nods at the mare as she leaves and puts the poster in her bag, grabbing the ticket from her bag as she does so. Her horn is no longer glowing as she is no longer holding onto the daggers, thinking that they are now in the clear. She keeps an eye on the group as she follows behind Foxtrot, hopping onto the train after passing the ticket over. She gets close to him and leans down a bit to whisper into his ear, "We need to find a room that I can seal off for you, to keep you safe in case they board the train as well."

Foxtrot travels down a few rows in the train until he finds a booth to sit in. He slide open the divider and steps in, "This should do." Scooting over to the window he places his things on the seat opposite of him. "Now a straight shot to Canterlot."

Tinder follows him to the booth and sits down with him. She leaves her bag on but takes out one of the daggers to keep right next to her hoof for the whole ride, just in case. "Yup, straight shot. Hopefully we won't have any problems getting there."

"Yea, there shouldn't be any hassle from now on." Foxtrot says as he leans back on his seat and gets comfortable. He looks out the window to see the pouring rain tapping on the pane. "The trip will take a few hours. Know of any ideas on how to kill time?"

Tinder looks at him as she thinks, her ears still twitching as she listens for anything that's out of the ordinary. "Well, there might be some wealthy ponies on this train making their way back home. we could always just pinch a couple of their belongings to kill some time and earn some money all at once. Or you could tell me what actually happened in that village, your choice."
