The Road to Home PT 2

 

For the most part, it had been several days since the last conversation she'd had with Hyle. One of the very first things after she'd fled from her rpesence was to clear out of the Hostle without a word to anyone, just leaving the keys to the room itself and a small stack of chips. As far as she knew, they didnt actually charge anyone to stay at the hostle, but she felt at that time it was only fair for the length of time she'd occupied to room to herself.

The Hunt is on

Abyss rode his Wolf to the outskirts of Hope Springs.  His directions were simple enough, and how he accomplished them was at his discretion.  Damion had been curious about the item the old bitch wanted to have back.

Abyss’s primary mission was to locate the person that had the item, and get it from them. This was what Abyss considered the fun part of his mission as it entailed hunting down the person, and doing whatever was needed to get results.  It had been a long time since he got bloody.

The musical, happy sound of girlish giggling drifted from the corner just down the street from Chez Spivey.

 

Silja was enjoying the new and improved Uwe. Not at all to say that she did not adore the previous version, but Uwe 2.0 was definitely a lot less shy and much much more exciting.

The Secret Adventurer's Club (Part 10 Last)

The little group huddled closer together. Anxious eyes turned in her direction and Finny could feel them boring into the back of her head.

“It’s okay. At least we can see more better.” She pointed down the tunnel. “Look, there’s all these doors to search.”

Secret Adventurers Club : Crossed paths

The scent of Nervous and Fear hit Abyss’s nose as soon as crossed the yellow tape, and stepped into the building.  A scuff here and a muffled noise there confirmed he was not alone in the building.  The old lady had said it would be a cake walk, and he just had to get in to find the object hidden in the safe.

Before going through the curiously inviting door to ‘Lucy’s Special Place’, and all the possible treasures it might contain, Finny had the little gang collect together everything they had scavenged so far. It was a lot. Even without the pile of brightly coloured and exotic ladies’ clothing Onetooth and Worms had put together it was still a lot for a bunch of seven and eight year olds to carry all the way back to Badger Court. Finny sought a solution.

The next two rooms proved to be drearily similar to the first. Even more so in one case when Finny’s searching fingers found an over full pisspot. She dried her hand on the far from clean sheet and retreated to the balcony, leaving Casper to finish digging through the room’s contents.

The four treasure hunters ran back into the saloon area. The stairs leading up to the balcony were in the corners adjacent to the main entrance, one for each side.

The kitchen had been trashed, of course, but it’s much harder to destroy stainless steel units and mixers than it is old wooden tables and chairs. And these were even pre-fall so we are looking at durable here. But it wasn’t the general state of the kitchen décor that made the kids halt their headlong rush to claim any left-over booty.

What hit Finny as she stepped through the door from the ruined office into the equally ruined main room of the bar was the overpowering stink of alcohol. Its unpleasant smell made her want to gag and Finny immediately wondered if you could just get drunk from the smell.

"Ugh.."

Hyle rolled over.

"Stop smirking" She mumbled with a scowl.

 

"Why do you drink so much?" Shad lay on his side with his head reasting on his arm.

 

"Because saturday is my day off, It's a party. I can put everything else out of my mind."

"Mhh  I guess."

Hyle rolled out of the bed, struggling to her feet and headed for the shower. Shad followed her to the bathroom, enjoying the rear view.

 

"Hyle...?"

"What!?!"

"Your gonna take your panties off before you shower, right...?"

Once he knew that he had everyone’s attention, Worms dropped to the floor and assumed the shape of the outline while doing his best impression of a long, drawn out death rattle.

Finny knew the name. She knew the name because she had made a habit of reading whatever was on Joe Spivey’s desk at the factory. She knew that Joe had recently bought some ‘Decorative Beer Pumps’ and some ‘Furniture; various’ and some ‘Kitchenware; Mis-cell-an-eous (she’d had to look that one up)’. She knew also that these and other items were now either in, or on their way to Joe’s warehouse on Verde Street.

Worms led them a fast paced and zig-zagging route through the back streets of New Flagstaff, making them wait in a tight huddle at corners until Union patrols were looking the other way and generally being all very ninjery about the whole journey. Not that it was really necessary but it did avoid much chance of their location being reported back to the orphanage by an over concerned busy-body.

It was just after lunch. Finny still had the watch Joe had given her so, she alone amongst the four of them, knew that it was… She counted the ‘5s’… Twenty five minutes past one. She was still getting used to mechanical time, but Joe had insisted, so that was that. Nevertheless, it wasn’t easy making the time in her head fit with the little numbers on the thing on her wrist. In her head it was ‘feeling better after dinner’ time.

It'd been several hours since She had a talk with Hyle in the small reception room at the Hostle, and Jess found herself more than a little upset by it over all. What Hyle might have thought was apprihension was more like a struggle with emmotions that were at odds with the situation in general, and also with feeling like she was being threatened with being removed from one of the very few places she actually felt comfortable much less safe these days.

Nikki at home in terrance woke from her bed. This moring was no differnt then any other she did her normal things and ate breakfest, but instead of laying around and playing with string or sharping her claws she decided she would go out to a differnt town and see what she could see. Any town would do for nikki, unless it was sunshinethats becuase "she" lives somewere there and nikki did not like being in a 5 yard radius of that girl, but were to go and what to wear? hard for her to go out and not stand out like a sandworm in a grass field. So why not the town of toro.

Wasting time.

Synn sat back on the porch of the Black Bear Bar, in Hope.  He absently watched the dancers outside the dinner run by the Mayor.  Life around here seemed quiet, but he knew differently.  

The packed Hotel downtown was filled with girls from Old Lucy’s place.  A quick conversation with two or three of the girls, and he could set up a nice little business quietly in town.  He filed that away for a later time.

The question is. What would she do next?”

 

Ok. So it had been a hard day, Hyle was feeling the pressure mounting. She sat back on her office chair absent-mindedly tapping the blotter with the end of her pencil.

Does anyone have the player map map of New Flagstaff that includes Bonito (sp) Street?

On the third day... (conclusion?)

It had not gone well. So not well in fact that Joe and Finny were now locked head to head in an emotionally charged glaring contest.

On the third day...

The four of them exchanged glances across the table. Finny gave Casper a nod of encouragement and what she hoped was a reassuring smile. Casper very slowly, and under the wide silent stares of the others, got to his feet and lifted the open book with both hands. His thumbs pressed side by side against the spine and at the very bottom of the spread pages as if praying to the author. Maybe he was.

Silja rolled the car to a halt not far from the door of the motel.

Uwe was still thinking, or was it hoping there was a restaurant inside. And there was, although not a very romantic one. He was still heading towards it when Silja yanked his arm. She headed instead for the reception desk.

Silja’s old Inty rumbled along the road, the sun was setting behind. She smiled.

Lonely at the Top

It was gone five. The office had emptied. Hyle’s staff had gone home for the evening.

 

Reavy had just left, having gained permission to hold self-defence classes at the hostel. At least this may give the girls a little more confidence after Hyle had confiscated the weapons that Jeass had distributed.

Another day at the Office

Wesley Drayton , Accountant of Hope Springs. Yes they even thought of making accountant clones.

Wesley was efficient, precise, diligent. Absolutely the right man for keeping Hope Springs finances in order.

 

And so fucking mind-crushingly boring!

 

As Hyle sat through his quarterly report,

And even though the details were typed in fine detail on the desk in front of her.

And even though the books were balancing.

 

Hyle was thinking.

Early Morning Run


It was an unusual morning for Jeassiah, since unlike most morning where she'd be soundly asleep, this one found her under the pale light of a street light in Hope Springs. Additionally, the Hostle itself had become a very busy place in the last couple of weeks with all the young women that were bussed in from the near by city. Something to do with Hyle busting some sort of sex ring and from what she had heard, it didn't go as well as planned, some one was killed, that much she knew.
