He'd follow right next to the Sheriff, and start asking once and for all. "Welp... My beloved airship was stolen. I only got one like it, and there's no replacing it, so I can't ever afford to lose it permanently. I've gotten clues so far that the place it was taken to was a hidden black market out in the Badlands... I wanna know if any criminal activity exists out there or not so I can take it back myself..." Out of all he spoke to, he could not feel nearly as compelled to hide the full truth as he did with the old timer. Perhaps it was out of respect for the elder. Or perhaps he simply still felt grateful that the stallion gave him some guidance when he needed it most.

The sheriff would stare at Sugary a bit in disbelief as he was trying to wrap his mind around what was said to him. "Well that....wow, sheesh, now that's a big problem right there. I wish I could help yah with that, but as most ponies should know, the badlands is out of Equestria's reach. So whatever happens there, there's nothing we can do about it. There is a good chance that criminal's might be out there, but it's practically a desert over there, can't exactly comb it over to pick them out for yah. It's named the Badlands for a reason. If you ask anypony else, no one will be able to tell you much about it as most folk's in these here town just stay in this town or head further north."

For Sugary, the conversation didn't go as well as expected, but at not as bad as it might've been either. At the very least, he asked someone he thought of as worthwhile. "So I'm gonna have to improvise... I figured help was gonna stay minimal anyway, and I know a Sheriff can only act in the name of the Law so far... Thanks anyway, you have a nice evening Mister. I'll take it from here." He'd then shake hands firmly with the stallion, and continue making his way about.

From that point on, he considered if he should try asking anyone else again, and thought that the best options by far involved those at the bar. Going back didn't seem like a good idea though, but then he just needed to look out for the ones at the table for the most part. It was then he decided to do a bit of espionage, wait casually near the area where the bar is, and try to spot any coming out from the bar whom he had spoken to. "... I wonder if Kimi is willing to help me out with something... But first, let's see if I can't do a bit of recon for a change..."

The Sheriff would give a light chuckle and shake Sugary's hand. "Whatever you decide to do just be careful and don't cause no trouble, ya hear?" He'd then tip his hat and go on his merry way to finish his patrol before returning to the sheriff's office.


By this point in the day, those that Sugary spoke to earlier were already leaving town. Heading north like they said they would when they were talking about earlier making a killing in Canterlot.

From the spot Sugary had chosen to look from at the ones he was waiting on to show up, he'd let out a sigh of disappointment as they all left in the same direction. "Darn... Not a single one of them is staying in town... So much for that idea... Think I got just about all I could get from the obvious places too... Guess that just leaves going back to her and see how he's doing."

He'd eventually make his way back to Cherry's homestead, and would look around for Kimi once more, asking for her if needed. Intellignce gathering wasn't his specialty, so perhaps she could come up with something more to aid them from what he could find...

Kimi was in the same room like before, she had done some other things through the day, such as cleaning her clothes, bathing and eating, but other than that she just kept to the room. When Sugary would finally come to see her again she was laying in bed on her side reading a rather ancient looking book, trimming with pure gold. Her gaze would shift from the page she was reading up to Sugary as she would close the book. "Hello. I take it you've been quite busy today?"

This time after entering the room, Sugary made sure to look about for a bit, and close the door behind him as he went in to speak with Kimi, though he gazed at the book for a moment before doing so. "Uh... Yeah, kinda. Didn't think I'd learn too much, but I did get this much at least..." He'd tell her about the group at the bar in particular. About the information he got regarding a Zebra tribe somewhere that seems best avoided but might prove useful to look into in a pinch. He spoke about the voice he was sure he heard involving the tip of the secret paper which he brought out to show her as a reminder. And he also pointed out that the group in question also had a penchant for traveling often in the Badlands more than others with rented carriages, and that there might be lingering tracks worth following...

"... And that's pretty much it for now. What do you think? We got enough to work with to find what we're looking for, or is it lacking...? Also, what's that book about? It almost looks like a prized relic..."

Kimi listened to him as he explained what he had learned and all the leads he looked into. To say the least he was thorough. Kimi would hold the paper that was handed to her and look over it once more to see if anything was missed. She'd ponder on it a moment and then her eyes shifted to Sugary who asked about the book. "It is." she stated as her answer before she sat up and moved the book into her lap and kept a single hand upon it. Inscribed on the cover were japanese kanji, symbols and markings. "As for the matter at hand, we have a general direction where to go. Recall that the Bazaar is only open from Moon up to Moon down, meaning they show themselves only at night, and more than likely in a location where the moon can hit. If I recall what that guy stated before, it's beyond the Princess's eyes, that could indicate that it might be someplace in the Badlands where the Princess can't see."

She would hand the paper back to him. "They could be underground, they could be invisible, they could be inside a mountain, they key to finding them would probably involve that sheet of paper and heading deep into the Badlands. Probably would be best to avoid tribe's, but we can keep it in mind for a pinch situation."

Curious as he was about the book, Sugary was more attentive to what Kimi surmised herself out of all the information they had by now as he took the paper back and stored it away. "... We might also need to consider the tribe is being used as a cover... Still, sooner or later, we're gonna have to find something out there. As long as it's my ship, that's all I care about... Speaking of which, how do you feel? We could try setting out tonight. Or we can make an early head start tomorrow and take our time looking for noteworthy locations once we both get more rest..." Unless Kimi was well for sure, he'd refuse to budge for her sake. He'd also somewhat hoped Cherry would be returning soon so as to gather at least some pay and extra supplies if she didn't arrive too late.

"I'm fine now. I've just been resting all day, I'm ready to head out whenever." She stated as she pondered about what he said about the tribe being used as a cover. "It's a possibility, but the most important part to keep aware of, is that the bazaar has to be located somewhere that's not easy to find, but also large enough to contain an airship. An airship isn't so easily made to disappear that quickly." She stated as she was pulling her elbow length glove off. Underneath Market could see what looks to be a sort of tattoo marked along her arm and she'd make one hand sign and then rest the book upon her forearm and suddenly poof! The book disappeared. She would then put her sleeve back on as she got up from the bed and stretched her arms above her head. "I'm ready whenever you are."


Cherry Jubilee was arriving home right now, the sound of hooves clopping and a carriage being rolling around the front could faintly be heard.

Sugary clapped his hands as a glint in his eyes and a confident grin came over his features. "Excellent! Also, you gotta teach me how you do that... Anyway, let's get going...!" It was then he'd hear the sounds of much movement coming from out the window, ear turning towards it as he leaned to watch outside, and smiled before looking over at Kimi and easing up. "... After we say our thanks and farewells to Cherry that is. It's the least we could do... Maybe I can convince her to give us a few quick things too..." From there, he'd urge Kimi to follow him and meet up with Cherry, hoping to end their stay on a high note before moving onwards.

At least Sugary seemed excited about this. Kimi only tilted her head and one of her ears lowered, while the other stayed upright. She didn't exactly respond to his comment about teaching him, and followed him out of the room to go and meet with Cherry Jubilee. Kimi hadn't met the mare yet as she had been asleep this entire time. She kept a steady pace behind Sugary who led the way outside. Once outside Kimi would glance about seeing what she could before her eyes fell upon the cart, whose door opened up and a beautiful Mare stepped out.

Cherry stepped out from the carriage rather tuckered and tired, she lifted her hand and rubbed it gently as she released a yawn, which she covered with her other hand. Once her hooves were planted firmly on the ground she'd speak to the carriage boys. "Thank yah, fellas. You two now have yerselves a mighty fine night." She'd would then look to her front door and look to see Sugary standing there with Kimi. "Oh well then, hello there you two. Finally awake I see." Cherry would give a kind smile to Kimi, to which Kimi would respond with a nod of her head.

As excited as he was, Cherry's tired look was enough to keep Sugary in check as he moved closer and took a curt bow for their host. "And a good evening to you, Ma'am. You'll be happy to know the work given to me was completed too... And you'll also be happy to know we don't intend to impose on you further. We've agreed to make our way again a short while ago, so we'll be leaving soon... But first..." He also didn't lack manners entirely as he offered her an elbow. "You look tired. May I escort you while I trouble you for one last request?"

Kimi only kept silent and watched the interaction between the two ponies.

Cherry would look at Sugary and she gave a little chuckle. "Oh Suga' you don't have too and that's wonderful to hear that you finished your chores." she stated with a pleased tone, she would walk up to him and pat him on the shoulder. "Now, now, I'm not that tired that I need an escort just to make it to my door. I do recall what I stated and I have some supplies ready for you. A decent amount that should last you a few days over in the badlands." She stated as she'd walk right past him heading for her door. "How soon is soon that you plan to leave?"

Sugary chuckled softly under his breath and just followed Cherry gingerly. "Heh... Yeah, we're gonna attempt to head to our destination tonight; Or starting tonight at least, which is why I wanna request we be given as much as you can give. Otherwise, I'd wait till tomorrow, but... I might lose something for good if we take too long." He looked to her hopefully, and somewhat anxiously as he would sooner just make way, but he wasn't about to pass on some sustenance where he and Kimi could get it along the way.

Kimi would follow behind Sugary as Sugary followed Cherry back inside the house. She would close the door quietly behind herself.

Cherry would listen to Sugary and nod her head. "Well if you wanna leave tonight, then I can't stop you. Probably would be a good idea to head out now, given how hot it gets during the day. Getting a good head start while the sun is down is probably rather smart. As far as your supplies goes, they're in the back room in a large box with your name on it." She would stop at the staircase and turn to look at Sugary and smile sweetly. "You've been quite the charming stallion, I appreciate the help yah did while yah were here. Do take care of yerselves, both of yah." she stated with sincerity. "Maybe next time yah can come and visit when yah ain't so in a rush."

A grateful bright smile would show itself to Cherry. "And you've been a lovely host, Ma'am. I'd be happy to come by again if things settle down a bit. Thank you so, so much, and have a good night!" He gave another curt bow, and then went over to Kimi to get things moving while speaking in a low voice. "Let's have a quick look at what she left for us. We can plan ahead with the supplies a bit better and make a swift exit, right?" He'd lead them to the room where the box was, and would start looking through what was available as soon as possible...

Cherry wold give a smile and nod her head. "Well you two have a good night, I'm going to rest, when you leave make sure you let the maid know so she can lock up behind you. You be careful now." she would wave as she would head further up the stairs and then cover her mouth as she yawned.

Kimi would bow slightly to Cherry and then shift her glance to Sugar who was excited into wanting to go and see what was in the box so they can quickly leave this very instant. "We can do that." she stated as she would follow him to where the box was located at.

The contents within the box were very simple things, but they were helpful things, multiple bottles of water, two canteens of water as well. Two blankets, presumably to keep warm at night, since it does get really cold in the desert. Rations, quite a bit of rations. There was enough supplies in the box to survive out in the desert for a couple days. There was even a compass, and a telescope.

With gratitude still in his mind, Sugary looked upon the contents as if they were a generous gift rather than mere payment. "We got enough here to go exploring for a few days together in comfort..." He thought briefly about the contents, and then looked upon Kimi with a neutral gaze as he made a quick offer. "How much of this do you plan to carry for yourself? You know, to split the supplies and prevent losing it all should something happen to either one of us... Otherwise, I'll carry it all in my bag, and say our farewells to the little maid."

Kimi would look over Sugary's shoulder as he was looking at what was in the box, her eyes looking over while mentally keeping track of the items in her mind. Her eyes would shift toward's Sugary as he talked to her. "Hmm...we could split it down the middle and go half and half." It was a good idea just in case they did split up. While she still had her soldier pills, she'd rather not have to resort to that. Kimi would take a step back and lifted her left arm and reached her fingers into her sleeve, her chakra circulated through her body and poof! She pulled out a scroll. "I can carry it in here."

Smiling lightly at more displays of Kimi's foreign talents, Sugary would nod and accept the terms. "Very well... Just one thing: I'd like you to keep the compass and telescope. Call it a hunch, but you seem to have rather keen eyes. Might as well let you make the most of them." He figured with her speed and likely superior profession in espionage, she would be the logical choice for his suggestion.

Once they were done gathering their things as agreed upon unless she insisted he keep one or both extra items of choice, he'd be sure that they find the maid and gave her their farewells; He in particular would also thank the lovely maid for looking after Kimi.

From there, he thought to start by seeking out the latest tracks into town from the badlands, and following their trail outwards into the night...

Kimi would look at him and blink before she nodded a little accepting his terms. So she took her half and the compass and the telescope. Though the compass and telescope she didn't put into the scroll. What she did with those two things was slip them into her right sleeve and poof, it disappeared into her tattoo.

With the rest of the items, Kimi would unroll the scroll she brought out and laid it out onto the ground, on the scroll were a bunch of kanji characters written in a particular pattern that stretched out across the scroll in a circular fashion with a empty circle in the middle of it all. To which she would stack the items neatly to fit within the circle. Made a couple hand signs. "Sealing technique." she uttered softly before holding a hand over the scroll and poof the items disappeared and the circle was now filled in, with what appears to be an large kanji. The kaji there would read supplies, but Sugary wouldn't know that unless he knew how to read kanji.

Kimi would roll the scroll back up and return it to her left sleeve and poof that disappeared into her tattoo as well. She was ready to go.

She'd follow Sugary to meet with the Maid and she as well thanked the maid for her hospitality and looking out for her while she was asleep. The Maid would show them out and then she'd lock the door after Kimi and Sugary left.

Onward into the night, Kimi and Sugary headed for the badlands.

As always, any chance Sugary could get, he'd attentively watch how Kimi did her Ninjutsu, always admiring the little intricacies of it as he could understand them.

With the tracks being the only real first clue, he'd do his best to follow the most notable ones in the direction to which he was clued to: South West of their starting position. As long as the tracks came from that way, he'd do his best to follow so long as there was a trail worth following.

Along the way, he'd seek for some conversation in the meantime. "... Say... While we're having a nice evening stroll over barren soil, is there any chance you would give me a few lessons on how you do what you do...? I'll understand if you'd rather keep it a secret, of course..."

Kimi would follow alongside Sugary, who she believed knew the route to go. This land was strange and new to her so knowing where to go was an unknown thing to her at the moment. She glanced about at their surroundings looking out into the dark.

Out from Dodge City there would be a set path that was easily identifiable even in the dark. It's soil a bit softer evident that many pass through here, but if you look closely one would also be able to notice lots of caravan markings going to the town and out and some heading toward's the badlands and others heading away.

When the conversation came up, Kimi's reply was a simple. "I only teach those of my village."

Sugary almost immediately sighed after Kimi's answer, though his expression largely remained the same. "Well, so much for that unless there's a way around that you're not telling me yet... Ah, but at least the tracks are still here, so I'm content either way... As long as this pays off at least... By the way, is there any chance of you tiring out soon again after, well, passing out from the pills, or does that never happen? Cause if you feel tired again, you make sure to let me know, okay?" Perhaps he was a bit too curious and chatty, though his concern for her health was genuine. And on and on they'd walk under the silent stars until the tracks somehow were lost, or something of particular interest showed up within their senses.
