A Scots Quair

Recommended Posts

Garrett, Juan and Daren all stood up, grabbed their bags and followed John; their strides showing varying degrees of reluctance.

Garrett wheeled around to face her. "What?" He questioned; trying to work through what she said. Coming to a minimal level of understanding he then asked. "What about my bag?"

Garrett gripped his bag tightly. "No one better touch it." He muttered; putting on a tough look to hide the fact that he was really concerned someone would go through his stuff.

Garrett was about to do just that but in watching Daoine he realized it wouldn't be very practical for...whatever they'd be doing. Reluctantly; Garrett handed the bag to Micheal and headed off after Daoine; not nearly as agily.

Daoine walked to a field, which dipped so you couldn't see the bottom. She picked up a faded headcollar from where it hung on the gate and whistled loudly through her fingers, banging the headcollar off the metal gate for good measure. She stopped and looked back and Garrett, while waiting.

"What're we doing?" Garrett asked as he came up beside Daoine. He looked over the field; finding the change of scenery a bit interesting despite himself. This was the first time he'd been out of San Francisco in all of his 17 years.

'A dyke broke last night, we got some sheep tae fin' Daoine said watching as the horses appeared over the hill. Dyn and Clyde appeared first, closely followed by Sam and Ranger . A slight gap before Tp , Hif , Hiacorn , Bruar , Reid , Dina and Hamish appeared. Then a much larger gap before Toffee and Sovereign appeared.

Daoine, rather distracted didn't even hear Garrett. '1,2....11...JET!' she yelled as the horses galloped up to the gate. She climbed up onto the gate for a better view over the tops of the horses and ponies.

Garrett looked over the horses and ponies, a bit in awe. He could count on one hand the times he'd even been this close to a horse before; and he'd never touched one. Garrett held out a hand tentatively to Clyde.

'Nae wait there' Daoine said, as she slipped the headcollar onto Ranger. 'Right get back, BACK!' she chased the rest of the horses flipped the latch and led Ranger out, the rest of the horses proptly rushing forward once the gate was closed.

'Donnae worry, he's harmless' Daoine said, grabbing a 2nd headcollar, going back into the field, getting Tp and leading him out. She then locked the gate securely. 'Ok then' she said, turning and leading Tp up through the field towards the small stables.

Daoine knew she was pushing it, so she let the conversation drop as they reached the stables. 'Tie him up o'er there, quick release knot' she said, tieing Tp up to once of the strings.

Chris had taken Kris's near-empty bag and followed the others inside. He hurried out soon afterwards to look for a chance to run off. There was no luck 'cuz Kris was looking out for him and motioned him to follow. They had followed Daoine and Garrett to the horses, and Kris's eyes widened in wonder. The last time she'd seen a horse or pony was when she rode one at the age of seven, five years before her parents died. Chris rolled his eyes, complaining, "Why are we here? They're only stupid horses!"

'I'se go' Lachlan muttered, going after Chris and Kris and

Daoine dropped the dandy brush she had just picked up with a clatter. 'Daoine' Lachlan warned catching up. 'Ye twa, ye've tae come wi me' he then said to Chris and Kris.

Chris swore, "What do you want!?" He glared at Lachlan, bunching up his fists. He was ready for a fight, and he wished he had his gun with him. It would show all of these people that couldn't speak real English.

ooc: i'm not trying to offend you Scots...

Kris elbowed Chris, but it had no effect. She tensed up, hoping that Chris wouldn't be starting a fight.

"Where we'll help out? Can I help with them?" Kris begged, still captivated by the animals. She remembered that she had always wanted to pet the ponies, but her dad wouldn't let her. He had only let her ride that one pony when she was seven, just that once...

"Whatever you're saying, I don't give a care! Speak English, for god's sake!" Chris snarled.

Garrett didn't know how to tie a quick-release knot, and he wasn't about to ask. He just knotted the lead rope loosely then stepped back, eyeing Ranger.
