xx Love in Vain Blues
« Thread started on: Jun 12th, 2010, 4:28pm »

Mr. Jones pulled the wagon full of wood down the lonely desert. He felt the burning sun bang down on his face. Puddles of sweat poured down his face. Normally Mr. Jones had a horse but unfortunately that old horse died walking down the desert earlier. Now it truly seemed Mr. Jones had lost everything dear to him. A noble sacriface for love. Atleast he wasn't like his father who sacrifaced for money. The drunken washed up hustler that seemed to still haunt Mr. Jones mind.

Mr. Jones glanced behind him and saw that the shadowy figure was still following him. Burnt skinned blackened to a crisp no facial features. However he was wearing a red flannel shirt with overralls. He had been following Mr. Jones for an hour now. Not speaking a word. Mr. Jones dared to not speak to it. He knew it was some twisted trick of the mind or perhaps the devils evil tricks. Mr. Jones knew this because he had passed a wagon a while back and they made no mention of the gruesome figure.

Mr. Jones dropped the wagon at the cross roads. He wiped beads of sweat off his face. He quickly turned around digging into the wagon for his canteen. Of course Mr. Jones found it and began to feel the precious mountain water quench his thirst. He glanced back and noticed the gruesome figure was still faced in his direction. Of course Mr. Jones couldnt tell if this hallucination was indeed gazing at him. Since afterall the face was burnt just so badly. Mr. Jones just sighed and sat in his wagon staring at the haunting hallucination waiting for some words of wisdom.

Since it was the desert she would be facing, Genesis had quickly dressed into slim fitting beige exploring pants, dark brown knee high heeled riding boots, a button-up white long sleeved top neatly tucked into her pants with a leather belt, dark brown leather gloves, and a medium sized beige hat neatly atop her head with a white mesh veil around the rimming hanging at the tops of her shoulders to protect her delicate skin. Taking her large black stallion, Genesis held a map in her hands while she continued into desert hoping she wouldn't get lost. Already she had spent a few hours traveling, preserving the water for her and the horse. Still, they pressed forward under the hot sun dampening her forehead and sending a trickling feeling down her back.

What was the purpose for her taking the risk of traveling this far for a simple man? She didn't know him, and didn't know if she would get along with this Mr. Jones due to words Dionysus has spoken and what she had learned in the tavern. But something inside of her wanted to take the risk although the fear was still sweltering in her bosom at the possible outcomes. Traveling alone, being a woman at that, meant anything could happen to her. For some reason, she felt as if someone was watching over her while she continued thinking, gazing over the multi-colored endless dunes while watching the waves of heat dance in the distance. Would she really find Mr. Jones? As Dionysus had described, he was in pain and she would do her best to help. This could be what she had been waiting for; this excitement, adventure, and nurturing aspect she had to give.

Letting out a sigh, she looked in the distance to see something and hoped her mind wasn't playing tricks. Slowly she kept the pace to conserve the energy of her tiring pet. Luckily an hour back they had rested at a small oasis where they filled up on water to continue their trip but she decided to never be too careful. They moved closer and closer as her eyes began to show the forming of a wagon sagging carrying something while someone sat staring into the distance. Was that Mr. Jones? It felt as if time was creeping while they continued on, closer and closer.

Stopping a few feet away, Genesis could see the redness from the hot sun on his uncovered body. Instinctively, she dismounted from her horse while bringing one of her spare canteens out as she walked toward him. Stopping arms length away, Genesis held out the canteen while producing a soft smile that brightened her eyes.

"Please, drink Mr. Jones," said Genesis.

Mr. Jones had stared at the same grain of sand for like an hour. His eyes couldnt bare to look around so when he heard the voice and saw Genesis. Of course Mr. Jones jumped alittle and let out a sigh of relief. That shadow thing wad still there Mr. Jones was sure of it. However he refused to pay it any mind around the woman in front of him.

"Howdy ma'am you startled me thanks but no thanks for the offer I remember you from that tavern why a purty lady like you our here" Mr. Jones said giving her a friendly smile. He glanced at her face and then quickly back at the ground.

Genesis felt a swell in her heart at his kindness and modesty, placing the canteen down at the edge of his wagon for when and if he would use it.

"I've been looking for you Mr. Jones, and am glad that I found you," she said, pulling the protective veil from her face to see him clearer.

"Why on earth would you be looking for me miss" Mr. Jones said weakly wiping the sweat off his face. He couldnt help but feel alittle suspicious now. His beady little eyes looked over at Genesis quickly scanning for some sort of clues of loyalty. Nothing still the sweet young girl from the tavern. He gazed back over at the almost limitless desert in front of him. He let out a sigh for a second thinking of what to say.

"I reckon I gotta be working pretty soon ole boss got one more job so he says and if it aint" Mr. Jones laughed alittle bit and snatched the cateen taking big gulp of fresh water. He placed the canteen down and wiped his mouth. He then pointed backwards to the rifle in the back of his wagon. He opened his mouth revealing a few missing teeth along with the now yellow surviving teeth. The promise of his dead wife for a few jobs made him so focused of course he neglected old habits.

A chill moved through her but she managed to keep her composure.

"I am in the position of taking care of matters with your boss, who sent me here Mr. Jones. I believe after the discussions in the tavern, I could not help myself but to search for the 'monster' that was considered to have lived there. I believe there may have been a largely great misunderstanding for such a weary, lost, old soul," started Genesis, hoping she was playing her cards correctly but was unsure since she knew her own pistols were still on her saddle. "Please come back with me Mr. Jones, there is a great deal to be discussed. The brave task which you are carrying out can wait a few moments longer, to which I will send men for you to oversee the building you are constructing."

"So I reckon that rock talked some mighty good lies to you eh?" Mr. Jones said laughing as he leaned up against the piles of wood behind him. He pulled out a knife and began to cut into the wagon floor. He smirked for a little bit and them pulled out a knife. He poked the knife against his index finger feeling it slice just to make sure it was sharp enough to deal with any threat.

"I know you aint supposed to help me I know how this things works ma'am and I know for one that he needs me to get this done" Mr. Jones said shrewdly. He then stabbed the knife into the wagon wood next to him. He smirked when the knife stayed put inside the wagon. Clearly it would be able to cut through whatever this devil has planned for him. He smiled and then daringly glanced to his right to see that dark figure still standing. Out of nowhere a voice seemed almost exactly like his own rushed into Mr. Jones brain speaking orders of a new plan. Mr. Jones felt a rush of joy when he saw the dark figure nodd his head in agreement and sink into the sand. The voice was his good noble father helping him out beyond the grave. Truly an angel to Mr. Jones in his time of need.

Genesis couldn't stop eying the knife nervously, unsure if she should continue to persuade Mr. Jones any longer. He seemed dangerous, dark, and cautious. Usually, she just needed to bat some eye-lashes, give a smile, and flirt to get what she wanted. This situation was defiantly now the case; Mr. Jones was someone closer to Dionysus than even herself. She had just met, both of them, and was still unsure of how deep the connection ran.

Pretending to not be ruffled by his movements or words, Genesis gave an unlady-like shrug while her hands moved to her hips.

"I see that you have your mind occupied with completing a task, but since I came all this way to find you Mr. Jones, would it be too much trouble to accompany you to your destination? It looks as if you're in need of a horse," she said, producing a smile while her thumb jutted out pointing in the direction of her irritated black stallion, shifting it's stance under the hot sun.

Mr. Jones gave her a huge grin. Mr. Jones had never seen real kindness in a while. In fact he had never noticed a woman like Genesis in a while. Maybe in the bar he was too focused on other tasks then staring down the maiden in front of him.

"I aint one to refuse no pretty ladie's hand would you mind setting your house up to put on my wagon I'm so tired" Mr. Jones said his wide grin reappeared. Mr. Jones was of course hoping to get a better look at the damsel when she got that horse on the wagon.

Genesis felt glad she could help.

"No problem," she replied, turning and moving to her horse. Bringing the black stallion near the back of the wagon next to Mr. Jones, Genesis unsaddled it before leading it with the bridle toward the front of the cart. Looking over the strange contraption, Genesis thought of the time she saw one of the workers get a carriage ready while her mind moved through the movements. Luckily for her, the same parts were on this as prior but not as well kept. The leather used on the carriages was always polished and shined to look brand new instead of used. It was no problem for it, but showed the difference between what others could afford. A bit of pity was in the back of her mind as she finally finished, more sweat coating her than before.

Labor and the desert heat was making her uncomfortable but thankful she wasn't in a dress and had changed. Moving back toward the wagon, Genesis folded the blanket neatly for under the saddle and started lifting the saddle, waddling quickly toward the wagon where she pushed it on quickly with a thunk against the wood. Resting for a moment, she took a breather while glancing over to the small sack holding food and extra water canisters.

"Wow, I don't know how you are able to be out here and move. This is tiring," she commented, taking a sip of her personal small canteen that was attached to her belt. Moving to pull the sack, Genesis put it in the back as well. "Ready when you are."

Mr. Jone watched Genesis hard at work on his wagon. This girl knew her way around. Those beauitful lips meeting against his in this barren wasted land. This dehydrated ground almost seemed to exaggerate every beautiful shape of her body. For that moment Mr. Jones forgot all about his wife. Mr. Jones quit fantasizing and spit on the ground and smirked revealing those beautiful broken teeth again.

"Ma'am how'd the devil get to you what'd you want? what'd he say to you what'd he say bout me how did he black mail you?" Mr. Jones said his voice wasnt full of anger like in the tavern. He almost seemed to speak in a mournful voice as if he was trying to find out why this poor girl turned from God. Like Mr. Jones had done.

Genesis seemed to stare at him for the longest time while she caught her breath, trying to get her body balanced against the heat of the desert. His questions were intriguing and it made her think about the character of Dionysus that she meant and wonder if there was more to him than met the eye. What did Mr. Jones know that she didn't?

"Please, you don't need the formalities Mr. Jones and can call me Genesis," she finally replied, seemingly speaking as if almost out of breath. It took her a moment to finally muster up the strength to think of the questions before answering clearly. "I believe that Dionysus is far from the devil, Mr. Jones. Although I do not know him as well as you may do, I see something more past that strange exterior he uses to distance himself from others. I wouldn't word it as he 'got to me' since I was the one who found him and invited to give him a place to stay."

Genesis paused, thinking of how she met Dionysus and let out a musical giggle.

"If you think me wanting to make someone happy as blackmail, then it will be. Dionysus does not order me around, I do things to my own accord. Does he do something like that to you Mr. Jones?" asked Genesis, tilting her head to the side while worry filled her voice at the last question. She did not know the relationship between the two and was sure she would learn. Hearing an impatient sound from her horse, she knew the breather was over.

"We could continue this conversation on our way toward the new destination," she replied, readying herself to move.

"He promised me my wife my life I aint one for being my knees but that devil got me in a corner and I've been doing his dirty work for a year" Mr. Jones said his voice rose with anger. He stared at Genesis a look of almost shock. Why would she listen to that thing. It's not even human. A dirty fithly disgusting creature had captured this poor maiden. Perhaps she wasnt even a human. Perhaps she was some spy Dionysus had followers. The man that got his brains bashed out by the rocks in the mine.

"Gene- ma'am I'm beginning to think you and me aint on the same page" Mr. Jones said calmly. His voice stuttered and twisted as he tried to pronounce her city folk name. Mr. Jones never took much of a liking to city folk. Mr. Jones stood up reached into the back grabbing his rifle. He aimed his rifle at the sky shooting it once to make sure it wasnt jammed. A huge grin formed on his face and he walked to the passanger seat of the wagon. He gazed out at the desert and watched the hawks soar in the air. Awaiting a mouse to crawl out of it's hole. He couldnt wait for that devil to poke it's way out of the hole.

"Sit up next to me gorgeous and take the reins I aint taking my hands off my rifle round your pretty self" Mr. Jones said smiling as if he just stopped a potiential hijacking.

Genesis swallowed hard, feeling the fear move through her as she managed to keep herself calm enough from the gun going off. What was going on? Did Dionysus send her into a trap? Her mind was wondering as she shakily moved into the driver seat and grabbed the reins in trembling hands. She never really liked guns much, but as always she was made sure to know how to use one if need be. Her pistols, still located in the back on her saddle, were a gift from Ariona and Edmund. At this moment, she wished there was a way to get out of this situation.

Finally holding the reins securely, Genesis let her tongue do the clicking while her impatient horse moved into stride carrying the heavy load. His words were still churning her stomach.

...he promised me my wife...

What had happened to Mr. Jone's wife then? Or had Dionysus promised someone to replace one lost? Her brow moved into a scowl, thinking of how Dionysus pushed the idea into the back of her mind. Her mind was playing with her as she thought of what Dionysus said as he sat across from her in the drawing room. The words whispering from his stone lips that were now moving through her mind.

...approach him, befriend him...marry him...

A light bulb seemed to move into her mind while the words etched out. This could be the way to get herself into a good footing with Mr. Jones, if she played her cards right she would be able to be home soon with the arrival of her parents approaching.

"I believe we're not on the same page due to the circumstances unknown to you for why exactly Dionysus has sent me here," came her reply, peering out of the corner of her eye trying not to focus on the riffle too much.

"Made me rescue him made me a blow up a mine people died miss? you know that people died to save that ungrateful sh*t now I'm making him a house in the mddle of a damn desert can buy one" Mr. Jones said quickly ranting on all the horrible things that he had been put through. Mr. Jones leaned his head forward and just stared at his feet. His eyes began to water and he couldnt bear to

"WHY DID GOD TAKE HER? I WANNA KNOW WHY ARE YOU HEERE YOU SPYING ON A MAN THAT AINT GOT NOTHIN?" Mr. Jones yelled moving his head over and looking the harlot in the eyes. He paused for a while not even moving all attention on Genesis. As he awaited her reply.
