Broadshield looks at Tinder, taking a breath and sighing. "I see, if you weren't scared of me or someone else arresting you, you'd be fine?" he asks.

"Yeah, that's exactly what I'm saying. If I didn't have to worry that I was gonna get dragged away from helping a friend by getting arrested, then I wouldn't be so nervous." Tinder looks away and back out the window to watch the scenery go by.

Broadshield closes his eyes and sighs once again, probably going to regret what he's about to say. "Alright, when all of this is said and done, I'll be sure to do everything I can to clear you from all your past and present crimes, and give you a fresh start. All I ask for in return is that you do everything you can during this mission, and don't be nervous around me, ok?" he says.

Tinder looks back at him quickly, not really believing what he's saying at first, "You'll wipe my slate clean? I won't have to worry about what I did back then, only what I do now? Are you being serious right now, because this seems like something that you wouldn't offer me if you had looked at my past." She takes a breath and smiles, "Hey, to get that slate wiped clean I'll do that best that I can do, I mean I was gonna do that anyway but this is an extra bonus now."

"Of course I'm being serious, I'm not one to lie to be honest." he chuckles. "Try and get some rest, It'll be a few hours until we get to Manehatten." he says

Tinder nods and lays down on the floor, moving around a bit to get comfy, "Thanks. I'll try to get some rest." She then closes her eyes and tries her best to fall asleep, a bit worried that if she does fall asleep she'll wake everyone around her with one of her nightmares in a bit.

Watching Tinder fall asleep, Broadshield then turns his head toward the window, watching the scenery pass by, waiting to either get to Manehatten or for someone else to wake up.

(Don't know where Fox wants to go with this, either have someone wake up and they'll talk, or fast forward to Manehatten. I'll let Fox decide.)

Ocean listened into Broad and Tinder's conversation, and upon hearing Broad's offer, let out a slight gasp. A clean slate... Ocean thought to himself. That could be very useful. I could visit my parents without fear of arrest. Although the townsfolk would probably still shun me... Ocean slipped quitly back to his seat. I'll keep an eye on them for now, see if there's a way I can get this for myself.

Several hours pass as the train nears its destination. After constant rolling and thrashing around in his sleep, as well as muttering nonsense, Foxtrot wakes up. "Hmm, huh?" He looks over to find Broadshield still awake. "Hey, how's it going?"

Tinder sleeps on the floor right next to Foxtrots seat, if he were to try to stand he'd end up stepping on her if he didn't notice her there. But it's pretty difficult not to notice her there, twisting and turning in her sleep, mumbling loudly in between tiny snores. As she sleeps her horn occasionally sparks and lights for a second, the space around her getting colder or warmer as it does, it's  not too big of a change but it is definitely noticeable. Maybe this is why she never feels rested when she wakes up.

After several hours, Broadshield begins to fall asleep, it has been a busy few days and he hasn't gotten much sleep. Before dozing off, he notices Foxtrot wakes up. "Hey Fox, how was your sleep?" He asks, thinking nothing of it.

Foxtrot gets up, looking over to make sure he doesn't interrupt Tinder's rest. "I'm alright Broadshield, thanks. Had a lot of weird dreams; I'm guessing my memories are still sorting themselves out." Making sure he puts his things away he approaches the door, "I'm going to use the restroom. Probably stretch my legs a bit and get some fresh air. Why not get some rest? You look like you could use a few Zs." The unicorn opens the door and steps through into the hallway. "I'll be back in a bit." Closing the door he begins to make his way to the caboose of the train.

Foxtrot exits the last section of the train, and climbs outside to sit on the roof. Taking a deep breath he looks up at the early morning sky, stars dotting the deep blue abyss of the night. After a few minutes in silence, he hears a set of hoofsteps, and looks over his shoulder to see who it is. Spotting a pegasus wearing glasses he turns back to observing the sky. "I should've expected you would take this trip. Still making sure I don't bail on our deal?"

"That, and because I have to go there eventually." Samiel says as he approaches the unicorn and sits next to him. "I see you have a plan of attack."

"Kind of." Foxtrot replies. "I gotta make sure everything goes as planned. And knowing me, things won't go as planned at all." He glances over to Samiel, "Wanna join in? We could use all the help we can get."

Samiel pauses for a moment before answering, "I'll consider it. To be honest I'm surprised your asking at all. I read the papers you gave me; what The 26 has done, how they used us for their gain, even what happened after Calais. Foxtrot, I'm assuming you read everything as well. Are you aware of..." He trails off, not knowing how to really conclude the sentence.

"You sent people to kill me." The unicorn blatantly answers. "They scouted my unit, led us to a changeling hive, and got everyone except me killed." He takes a deep breath as he remembers those events, "I wasn't killed, but I certainly lost a life. All my soldiers, my friends, all dead. I lost my magic, my sanity, my job... everything. I almost finished myself off; you almost succeeded Samiel, almost."

Samiel's wings flutter as he hears the outcome of his orders, "I see things haven't gone well for you either. So why aren't you striking me down right now? After all I've done to you?"

Foxtrot looks over to the pegasus, "Because I'm not any better. I was a tool for war; flooded an entire village, killed so many innocents just to finish the job. The universe works in mysterious ways, but there is always a balance; an equal and opposite reaction to what we do. Sam, I'm tired of killing, of war, of senseless bloodshed. Oddly enough I recently discovered how proficient I am at it. The 26 uses this to make a profit, and because of it, they will be brought to justice. As for you... As far as I'm concerned, were even. We're both just two ponies doing what we thought was the right thing, when in reality we were being played. We actually destroyed each other's lives without ever meeting face to face. So now it's up to you, where do you think we stand in all of this?"

Samiel looks up at the starry sky as a moment of silence surrounds them, the wind being the only noise in their ears. "I still want you dead Foxtrot; although not as much as before, and not enough to follow through with it. I assumed you were dead for a time, I meditated for a while and moved on. I have bigger things in the works that require my full attention."

Foxtrot chuckles, "Oh yeah, that telescope thing. How's it going along?"

"How did..." Samiel cuts himself off, the answer already popping up in his head. After adjusting his glasses the pegasus gets up and begins walking back to the entrance. "Nevermind. Although I may not join you, Agent 04, I do wish you luck; you all need it."

Foxtrot looks back up at the sky for a little longer, memories both old and new still playing across his vision. Without a word, the unicorn gets back up, and returns to the booth to meet back with the others.

Watching Foxtrot leave, Broadshield lies down on the seat closing his eyes, but making sure he doesn't fall asleep, he still wants to discuss a few things with Fox before they get to Manehatten.

Tinder's sleep isn't bothered by Fox stepping over her to get out. But she may be bothering anyone in or around the booth when a little bit after Fox leaves, she mumbles quite loudly in her sleep before her horn sparks again. Unlike the tiny temperature changes that this had been causing before, this one is quite a large and very sudden temperature change. Causing it to become ridiculously cold in and around their booth, and stays on this freezing temperature as her horn keeps sparking and her magic keeps the temperature this cold.

The severe change in temperature causes Nivalia to stir, eventually waking up the mare. Instead of waking the unicorn, she simply levitates the overhead compartment across from her. Several blankets come out, one floating to Broadshield, herself, and opening up to wrap around Tinder. "Tinder, are you alright?"
