PostSubject: Across The Wasted Space   Sat Dec 23, 2017 2:34 am

Purse Cutter walked down the blasted remains of what had once been a road as the desert terrain stretched out on either side of her, a sandstorm brewing in the distance that would be here in a few hours. Not that she was overly concerned about that; her dad had taught her how all of these roads, no matter how blasted and decayed they were now, had once led to settlements and so there was no reason to not stick to it in the hopes of finding a building intact enough to hunker down for the night.

The tiny thestral had pulled her black duster coat tighter around herself by the time she finally, at long last, saw something that looked like it held promise. At the end of the left fork in the road she could spy a battered looking old building with some kind of exterior roof and pumps outside it... whatever it had been originally, for tonight it would make excellent shelter.

Her fortunes only improved as she approached closer and found a more normal looking house next to the old station. Well, it looked like it had been a store a lifetime ago, but it would do tonight for a settlement.

Her fingers rested on the grip of her handgun in her coat pocket but in the end the thestral held her hands up and advanced toward the wooden hut. If anyone was home she didn't need to be marching up weapons out like a common raider.

Toffee finishes tying up the last of his Brahman in his caravan before giving a content sigh. He gives a nod to the caravan Gaurd, “Think they’ll be alright in the storm tonight ‘Mel?”

“Been through worse before.” The slightly smaller stallion responded, giving a nod. “Either way, we should probably get set up inside before it arrives.”

“”Yup,...” Toffee says, pushing open the back door and walking inside, kicking a few empty bottles and tin cans out of the way. They had already set up their cots. Toffee was going to take first watch tonight though. He threw himself into a moldy chair in the corner and checked the ammo in his shotgun before plopping a cigarette in his mouth and lighting it up. It was around this time he noticed the door opening. He dropped his smoke and fumbled for his shotgun next to him. He hoisted it up into his shoulder. “Don’t fuckin’ move!”

Purse Cutter's revolver spun into her hand from up her sleeve by instinct but she held herself back from aiming the gun at the stallion; it wasn't exactly an unjustifiable reaction out here to be extremely nervous of strangers, especially ones who so obviously advertised trouble like she did. So, with a calm, relaxed smile to show she wasn't threatened, Purse held the revolver up to the light and took each bullet out of the chamber, one by one, before holstering it.

"Alright, convinced I ain't gonna be trouble?" Purse asked, slowly taking steps towards the building with her hands up. "I promise you, last thing I want is a gunfight after the day I've had; I just wanted to see if I could hunker down from the store somewhere nice and with an intact roof, okay?" She continued walking slowly toward the cabin, ready to stop at first notice.

"I see the place isn't as unoccupied as I'd thought. That's fine, I can roll with it; how about a trade? I got caps, I got food, I got... well, let's just say, I can make a deal with you." She said with a flirtatious smile.

Toffee only slightly lowers his shotgun, although keeping it in his hands and aimed at her. He picks up the smoke he dropped and put it back in his mouth, taking a long drag. “Now, even if we were to make some sort of deal with y’all, how do I know ya won’t just kill us in our sleep?” He takes another drag. “I mean, I understand there is a sandstorm and all, but you gotta understand we got a job to do, we can’t stop to help everyone we meet.” Toffees brother/Gaurd starts stirring a small bit. “Now, stay quiet. He rarely gets sleep, and I’m plannin’ on lettin’ Him enjoy it, aight?”

Purse Cutter nodded. "Trust me, if you didn't have those sort of suspicions I'd think you were right stupid twat." Purse commented with a nod of her head, lowering her voice as he requested and continuing to slowly approach him until she was at the edge of the deck that he stood on that led into the shack. "I get it, I get it, you need a reason for me to not just give you a wake up call shaped like a magnum round, so...."

The thestral reached back and fished in her rucksack for a moment before pulling out a slightly battered looking holotape. "Why don't I make it worth your while. You're a caravan right? This holotape is supposed to have the lowdown on enough scrap to buy out one of those fancy New Pegasus casinoes; you let me stay the night, I'll let you hear read it and we can split the salvage. I get a place to sleep for the night and a pair of helping hands, you get a major payday."

The thestral held her hand out to him. "Do we have a deal? If you could answer before a great load of sand decides to batter the whole place that'd be lovely."

He ponders this for a moment, sighing and giving a tiny nod. “I mean, i could just kill ya and take the tape. But I’m a decent Pony... most of the time... so...” he stands up , keeping his sawed off shotgun in one hand as he walks up to her, shaking her hand. “Get in. And please leave your gun over in the rucksack.” He nods to a bag inside. “Can’t be too careful, y’all know?” He gives a sheepish smile and blows a final puff of smoke, crushing the butt under his shoe. “We only got two cots, but considering I’m awake you can take mine, if ya want.”

Purse Cutter nodded in gratitude as he let her in, crunching her nose up slightly at the smell of smoke, evidently this one was not a smoker herself. Still she did as she was instructed and laid her rucksack by the door, strapping her magnum to it by a loose strap before she walked in properly.

"Trust me. You could try, all I'm sayin'." Purse grinned confidently at his mention of how easily he could've taken the tape from her, taking her duster coat and goggles off as she did so and hanging them on a hook; her leather armor was a dark shade of purple with pink highlights in the same color as her mane here and there on it, as well as bearing her midriff; indeed the top portion of the armor looked to be fighting a constant battle to keep her chest contained.

"Eh, I don't think I'll sleep much... night owl, you know?" She said, not feeling the need to say the real reason she needed to stay awake. "You got any cola? Used up my last bottle about two miles back." She asked, taking the nearest seat and kicking her feet up on the window sill.

He gives a small chuckle at the question of cola. “Well, we don’t got no cola with us, we only carry booze and water. Think I did see a few bottles of sarsaparilla in the back though.” He looks behind him. “Gimmie a sec.” He hops up from his chair, grabbing his shotgun and heading into the back room. A few seconds later he comes back with a few bottles of the stuff. “Yup, knew I saw some.” Sets the bottles down next to her before opening his bag, pulling a flask from it. “So, what’s y’alls name anyway?”

Purse graciously grabbed one of the bottles and jammed the cap against the edge of the window sill to get it off, pocketing the blue star cap before she took her first sip.

"Purse Cutter, a pleasure." She smiled at him as she looked out the window, the storm now beginning in earnest; while the outside was still perfectly visible there was no mistaking the regular gusts of sand across the air now. "This a regular stop for you boys? Or you just in my boat, looking for somewhere to not become a walking sandbox over night?" She asked curiously. "Oh and it's generally not polite to ask a lady her name without giving your own, just sayin'." She smirked.
