PostSubject: "Bound" for Glory   Tue Jul 21, 2015 1:17 am

The chains were uncomfortably tight around her hooves, and she kept tripping on them as she was led to her temporary cell. Nuva was pouting, annoyed that she had been caught. But that was a definite risk when stealing from royalty. In hindsight, it was a really terrible idea to begin with. Sneaking up to Prince Blueblood himself and trying to steal a priceless golden scabbard. She needed that gold, and the jewels on it, for various things. She wanted to melt down the gold to use as money, and the gems would make for excellent catalysts for some of her potions. And yet, here the striped, goldenrod, pegasus hybrid was. Bound in chains and being led to a temporary cell.

She looked up to the guard immediately to her left, purposefully leaning on him and making sad eyes. "Can't you pllleeeeaaaassseee loosen the cuffs?" She begs. "Just a little bit?"

The thin, somewhat scraggly white unicorn on her left was the one using his magic to lead her with a light tug on the chains with his magic. The two guards leading her were very atypical of the standard royal guard, instead of the nightly golden armor they were instead dressed in simple black fatigues with sheathes on their backs for weapons.

"Loose cuffs lead to loose prisoners, and loose prisoners mean a loose grip on our jobs." The unicorn replied swiftly through a thick Germaneigh accent.

"Ah c'mon Canstatt give her a break." The pegasus on Nuva's right told him in a laidback tone. "It's not like you're usually one to judge for somepony getting one over on old Blueballs. If you could've let her go you know you would've." 

The white unicorn twitched like he was trying to dislodge an irritating fly. "I will not dignify that with a response." He grumbled as they lead Nuva to a cell that was thankfully not the darkest depths of the dungeons but rather a standard holding cell with a relatively comfortable looking bed. A third guard in black fatigues stood next to the barred door, an earth stallion who towered over Nuva and the other guards and seemed to be built more like a brick wall than a pony.

"Heya Haybale." The pegasus remarked, pushing Nuva slightly to him. "Another one for the temporary cell, want me to watch her?"

"If you want Dusty." Haybale shrugged, speaking in a baritone that seemed to echo off of everything including things that sound couldn't echo off of.

Nuva frowned at the response from the unicorn, but kind of giggled at the remark from the pegasus. He was clearly a guy that got it. Though she nearly tripped over the chains again when she saw the... Huge... Earth pony standing by the cell. She shook her head in disbelief that anyone could actually get that big. And then her eyes turned to the cell with a look of frustration. "Aww come on. Do I have to?" She complains, giving the three of them pleading eyes.

She really didn't want to go to prison. She'd heard things about prison. And not the fun kind of things you hear about prison either. The terrible kind of things. She leans against the one called Dusty, trying to beg with her watering puppy dog eyes.

Canstatt didn't seem too moved while Dusty had leaned against the wall and was attempting to use a flint to light a cigarette which most likely didn't contain tobacco judging by the smell. "Standard procedure dictates we hold you in here until the prince decides whether or not he wants to press the matter." Canstatt read off like a walking talking textbook as Haybale guided Nuva into the cell.

"Nothing personal." Haybale assured her with a baritone that seemed to boom more than the clang of the door when it shut. "Just doing our job is a- Dusty stop smoking that manure." Haybale shook his head at his companion.

"Hey, it'll make her feel more at home." Dusty objected, nodding at Nuva.

"You know that's kind of stereotypical right?" Haybale asked with a raised eyebrow. "If I may ask Miss, do you want a newspaper? I think Canstatt will have finished his about, oh I don't know, seven hours ago?"

"Always read the paper at 3am publishing time." The unicorn nodded as if this was normal. "Get what the population thinks is the news as soon as possible, that way you know the lies to spew next morning."

"...Right." It was odd, the three guards were obviously close yet they bickered like siblings.

Nuva looked from behind the bars and leaned against them. Well this certainly sucked. Now she was locked up with no way out. She watched the three guards bicker like brothers between. Themselves and blew a bit of mane from her face. Just how was she going to get out of this one? Dusty would probably be the easiest one to manipulate, while the unicorn Canstatt would probably be the most difficult. And Haybale... She couldn't quite read him... She would just have to sit and wait until she was left alone with one of them...

Haybale put himself between Canstatt and Dusty like an older brother would do before giving them instructions. "Canstatt, you can go and start doing the paperwork you love so much, me and Dusty will watch the prisoner."

"Do I need to remind you I'm the leader?" Canstatt asked.

"And what would your orders be then? You'd just order us to do what Hay just said." Dusty retorted, kicking his hooves up at the guard table.

"...point taken." Canstatt acknowledged before letting himself out and slamming the door behind him. Through a gap in the bars that was removeable Dusty slid a jug of water and a glass for Nuva.

Nuva looked at dusty and gratefully took a drink. These guys weren't mean, not that she could tell anyway. But they were still keeping her captive, and that just wouldn't do. The first step would be getting out of these cold, uncomfortable chains. She leaned against the bars, letting the chains rattle loudly against them and looked at the two ponies that were watching her.

"So you guys are Blueblood's personal cronies, huh?" She asks with a smirk.

"Don't describe it like we like it." Haybale grumbled from the table the two were sat at, Dusty was already fumbling with a pack of cards to lay out for the two of them. "Fancy a game?" Haybale offered, gesturing for Dusty to deal a hoof of cards under the bars for Nuva.

"Yeah, only way we can stay in the guard." Dusty told her. "Turns out we don't play well with others unless it's the three of us and no one else. Luna didn't think we'd make very good guards." He said, sliding the cards under the bars for Nuva. "But Celestia realised you don't let three flankkickers like us go that easy, and she gave us the job of making sure her bint of a nephew doesn't get himself killed."

"You mean Celestia took pity on all three of us having no other prospects."

"Same thing."

Nuva took the cards as they came under the bars, not much else to do while she waited and planned her escape. She listened to Haybale and Dusty describe how they were basically only any good working with each other. She then saw an opportunity in her situation, a chance to finally be rid of the first of her bindings.

"You know, boys. As much as I would love to play a game with you..." She starts. "I don't think I could concentrate properly. A certain unicorn made these cuffs a little tight." She says, jingling her chains a bit. "You wouldn't be able to take them off, would you?"

Dusty shook his head and stood up, the thin and agile pegasus tut tutting under his breath as he grabbed the keys and walked toward Nuva's cell. "Canstatt needs to learn that not every blighter of a prisoner is maximum security." Dusty said, reaching his hands out for Nuva and loosening the manacles, opening them up to reattach them.

"Let us know if it's uncomfortable again." Haybale told her from the table, the burly earth stallion taking a swig of his iced tea while he waited on Dusty to finish with the manacles so they could start their game properly.

Nuva smiled and rubbed her wrists when they became free, enjoying the limited freedom. "Thank you." She says to Dusty, giving him a wink. And now the keys were right in front of her. She just needed to grab them somehow without being spotted, and it wouldn't do to have her restraints back on either. "Can't we leave them off? It's not like I'll be going anywhere." She asks him with a pout, quiet enough that only Dusty would hear. "In exchange... Maybe I'll do something for you." She gave him another wink and pressed herself invitingly against the bars of the cell. The cold metal made her skin twitch as she pressed it against herself, one bar in particular settling itself between two lovely lumps, covered only by the singular bandeau that Nuva wore.

"We're not really supposed to..." Dusty said uncertainly while Haybale didn't answer her at first. When she finished her sentence Dusty coughed loudly and spluttered, clearing his throat and trying not to look back too much while Haybale too cocked an eyebrow at her actions even though he didn't seem as bothered by it as the pegasus.

"We can't let you go, but I'll tell you what; why don't we have a little fun and make the poker a strip poker round? You win and we'll leave the cuffs off. You lose and you wear nothing but the cuffs." It wasn't a threat judging by his voice but then so far Haybale had been very hard to read.

Nuva looked up at Haybale curiously. What was this guy's angle? He didn't show any kind of personality to speak of. Meanwhile, Dusty seemed to be wrapped around her finger already. She thought about it, for a moment. She really didn't have much other choice it seemed, if she wanted her plan to work. She wasn't that great at poker, but perhaps she could distract them enough with her wiles to get a read on them both. Not like she had much choice.

"Hmm, alright. You're on~." She tells Haybale, backing away from the bars and looking at her cards.

Dusty grumbled on his first hand and immediately threw in a fold, not even bothering the proceed forward with an apparently abysmal hand. Haybale on the other hand smirked confidently and decided to take a card.

"you know you should be more careful if you want to screw over the prince." Haybale said to Nuva almost like he was advising her. "Less work for us too." He added, asking Nuva if she wanted to have another card or stay with her current hand.

Nuva looked at her hand and hummed, if she folded, she lost anyway. So better to just play it out and trust her luck. "I would have gotten away with it if that lady hadn't called out." She says, winking at Haybale. "I'm in." She states, looking at the earth pony to see how the hand would play.
