I felt like hugging him."Thank the Great Engineer! You saved my hide!" I leapt from the horse and struck out my hand for him to shake. "I didn't catch your name, but mine's Julie. As you probably know."
I ignore her hand and say. "My name is phoenix." I look at her hand. "I don't do that anymore."
I raised a suspicious eyebrow. "Alright, I'll take it then." I lowered my hand. "Why can't you shake my hand, sir? I would like an answer." I shot him a steely gaze.
Ignoring her question i say. "If you want to get to your destination i suggest that you go now. I will ride with you on my horse encase the hunter shows up."
"I want my answer young man." I persisted. "I'm not an easy one to break."
I walk away and get on Whirlwind. Then i ride ahead if them.
I growled under my breath. "Let's go, Keith."
( i sit in my room in the hotel bored to death ) hm...( i decide to take a walk )
I trail the three of them. I see the one He called Phoenix rent a wagon for the two of them. looks like my mission is going to be twice as hard with two people to protect* I think. "maybe we should call in for reinforcements". my friend says in my mind. No you and I can do it just fine. I say back.
I slow down Whirlwind so he matches the wagons speed "Do you know who that person who i saw following us is?"
"Thank you miss!" I get up and dumbly go outside and walk away
I scan ahead of me. I know that @Fulson_Ottercrash is behind me and I sense his thoughts. Looks like my mission is going to be twice as hard with two people to protect he thinks. Maybe we should ask for reinforcements. I say.No you and I can do it just fine. Ok I complete a scan and duck just as the one Fulson said He called Phoenix passed. Why don't we just come up to them and introduce ourselves to them?He said to remain undercover.Staying undercover is boring.It is still our job. Lucky or the Hunter could attack at any time. Beside I almost jeopardized our mission by helping fight the Hunter. They had it completely under control.
"Okay. You know Jewel, minding your language aside. You are still a lady. I shall try not to be no nice to you if that's what you want." @Julie_Martin
I smirked, stretching my legs out on the empty seat next to me. "I'm fine with kindness, just no callin' me lady. Okay?" A short dagger of guilt stabbed my gut. "And... The real name is Stanley."
I stare at the girl for a moment, "I think that it's a lovely name." I felt a bit bad for calling her 'lady' so, "Stanley, listen up. I'm.. sorry." I turn away from her slightly embarrassed. @Julie_Martin
I hear Phoenix ask Keith and Stanley ask if they know who the person following them is. Hey! @Fulson_Ottercrash they know you are back there!what do you mean?phoenix asked them if they knew who the person that was trailing them was.Ok, but what should I do?Put on your shadow cloak. I'll see if I can find anything else out.Got it.
I blinked at his kindness, most of the people like him didn't last long in the west.
"No hard feelings. But I am surprised you made it this far being so polite." I grinned. "How do you do it?"
I slip on my shadow cloak and get in the shadows right as Keith turns and looks at me.phew. That was a close call. I say.did they see you? no.Ok. Over and out.
my face turns serious, "Do not take me lightly Stanley. Just because I am polite with you doesn't mean that I would hesitate a minute to shoot someone." I give her a deadlock look.
