xx oh what fun a mining expedition
« Thread started on: Jan 27th, 2008, 3:21pm »


Mr. Jones stood on top of the stage with no emotion. His brain thinking of the events to follow. To his right were some minding gear. Shovels and pickaxes along with 5 lamps were neatly lined in a row next to him. Things had changed in his mind since the thing came. He had become more focused instead of being cluttered. He hadnt eaten in a day but he could still stand perfectly still and melt the time away. Almost like he was in a temporary hibernation.

He watched the suns position from the window. Impatiently as the sun moved to the noon position. Success a huge smile formed on his face. He wiped the sweat from his face eagerly and he sat down at the edge of the stage. Waiting for people to line up for what human's really want. Gold that's what. They need gold. They love gold.

"What's this about a mining expedition now?" Jamie walked into the theater holding a cigarette between his fingers. Fermata, still recovering emotionally from the wedding incident, felt the need to be around people for comfort and therefore had come with him.
Jamie really had no idea if he wanted to get into this or not. Mainly he was just drawn there by curiousity.

In Clauden, if there was an adventure dealing with danger, particularly of the undergroung sort, chances are you would find Travis.

The boy just happened to be walking around with his finger stuck far up a nostril when he happened to see a man lining up a row of lanterns and picks. Travis's face beamed with joy as he entered the man's area.

"Say fella whatch ya gonna do with them lanterns and stuff. Them tools there look like what some of those bearded guys use to find gold."

"yes we're having it very soon mining expedition all ages" Jones said looking over at Travis. He looked over at the characters that stood in front of him. Putting up the risks of what could happen to the plan. "and there's plenty of gold still left in the mines too I made a fortune from it and felt that I had to give other's a chance to make some money too" Mr. Jones said jumpin of the stage. He looked over at Jamie carefully. He diddnt seem too strong. Not too weak either. The boy the more the merrier I guess. Mr. Jones thought to himself laughing under his breath.

"I was told that the mines here were copper mines," Fermata said just above a whisper. It was clear from her expression that she had only wanted Jamie to hear, but the silence in the open theater made this impossible. She added more loudly, but still only to Jamie,
"The mines are dangerous."

"Yeah, I was under that impression as well," Jamie said, looking over Mr. Jones. He didn't seem like the kind of man who had made a fortune as he said. This whole thing seemed a little shady. He nodded slightly, acknowledging Fermata's statement about the danger.
"Well, sir, how much gold? And what do the miners have to say about this? I'm sure you would have to have gotten approved before taking an expedition down to their turf."

Mr. Jones face turned red. He mentally strangled Fermata. He then turned to Jamie. "clearly this little girl is mistaken the mine is a gold mine filled with tons of gold" Mr. Jones said an eager smile formed on his face. "the mine was closed because the man who ran the expedition died so now his sons are fighting for control over the mine" Mr. Jones said sadly. "all that gold it would be a shame to waste it that's why I'm suggesting we sneak in it's not like anyone gaurds it" Mr. Jones said calmly.

"Really. I had never heard that," Jamie replied, pushing his hair back from his forehead. "If what you are telling me is true, and even if it's not, what you are suggesting is most likely illegal. That wouldn't stop me and, no offense, you don't seem like the respectable kind of man that it would stop either. It might stop others interested in doing this. Just a forewarning, my friend. But hey, why not. I'll go with you."
He smiled casually and extended his hand towards Mr. Jones. Jamie wasn't a fool. He knew there was something else behind this. He would have to work on the inside to figure it out.
Wait, since when did he care about people who broke the law? He had to stop hanging around Larghetto so much.

"Jamie..." Fermata said in a voice filled with worry. Her large blue eyes drifted from the floor and up to Mr. Jones and studied him with distrust.
"Messieur, can you assure his safe return? Have you examined the mine where you plan to go? People... die in the mine."

"he will arrive back safely" Mr. Jones said calmly. "I assure he will" Mr. Jones of course knew that the mines were dangerous. He knew that the trip would be troubling. Who knows the voices said whispering in his ears. Mr. Jones smiled at the thought of a new addition to the family. "only fools have died in that mine I assure your safety Jamie" Mr. Jones said smiling.

When Travis heard the word "Gold," he was struck with the fever. His mind started imagining all the things he could buy with gold.

Images of new rifles, candy galore, puppies, his own horse, filled his head.

"Shucks mister sign me up. I'm a strappin lad. A boy like me could work all day long in them mines."

Travis looked over at Fermata.

"Fermata you are always so dang scared. Ya know I can protect ya in them mines. It ain't dangerous. I will let ya clean my gold with a brush when I get it. Ya can have a nugget."

"I'm gonna be rich!" Trvais said jumping for joy.

"Well, good thing I am not a fool then," Jamie said calmly. He kindly glanced over his shoulder at Travis.
"There is a fine line besides fear and caution, my friend."
He returned his gaze to the stage.
"Besides, Fermata will not be going into the mines. Even if she wants to, which there is no evidence of at this points, I wouldn't allow it."

Mr. Jones looked at Travis. "well that's ones on the list" Mr. Jones smiled and laughed at the thought of Travis digging into the dirt. Searching for gold bleeding fingers in desperation. That is the american dream the voices whispered delightfully.

"Jamie I assure you I would not take someone as easily scared as Fermata is" Mr. Jones said smiling looking over at Fermata. Sweat began to slide down his face. He quickly cracked his to the side and shook his head quickly. He would have to work quickly. He thought to himself.

"Don't know 'bout easily scared, but Fermata is just about the only rational, intelligent person in this town," Jamie said through a yawn. "So. When are we doing all this? Today?"

"So when are we going in them mines. I'm getting kinda bored just talking bout it," Travis said starting to fidget. His attention span was real short.
