« Thread started on: Apr 20th, 2010, 6:06pm »

Carlos walked to the strip mining operatoin. He had to stop several times to make sure tha Eva could stay with the group due to her injuries.

Even from the distance of where he stood he could hear the mighty roar from the water cannon as it tore down the side of a mountain, extracting precious metals.

Carlos looked up the nearby steeper mountain side. He was looking for the pipline that snaked up the side of the mountain and provided the source of power to the water cannon. The miners had diverted most of Jones River so that it was fed into pipes far above where they stood now. The pipes, as they descended, grew thinner and thinner to build up the pressure to an enormous degree. Once the water reached the cannon it exploded out with a force of 5000 pounds.

"Eva, senorita, you must go up to the miner operating the cannon and seduce. Say something about his pipe or something. Draw him away, find out where the corporate boss is."

Maddog manned the water cannon that was supported by a large tripod-type aparatus. The cannon could be rotated but required a few people to move it.

He could hear nothing while operating the machine save the sound of water being forced out at a high rate of speed.

Eva had to withhold a chuckle. She was a mess. She probably looked horrible, and now she was slightly drunk. Still, she would do what she could. Eva hobbled over to where the miner was. She had never worried about it before, but this was the first time she had ever seen anyone working at the mine.
"Hey there, cowboy," she shouted over the noise of the cannon. Eva knew that most men assumed women to be stupid. "What exactly are you working on here?"

Rodrigo had been in the jail for far too long, keeping himself busy dusting the cobwebs or who knows what. Eventually, he came to the conclusion that the jail had practically no use these days, and there was no sheriff's office to be found. Rodrigo overheard from some gamblers at the tavern of some shenanigans at the mine and decided to check it out. He was somehow unsurprised to run into Carlos again.

Maddog could faintly hear the Eva call to him. He turned at the noise and was surprised to see a woman standing there.

"SHUT HER DOWN!" Maddog yelled out to a worker manning the shut off valve.

THe man at the pipline twisted the round valve wheel until the water came to a complete stop.

Maddog looked shocked to see the woman. His beard wagged back and forth in the wind.

"What are you doing here mam!? This is a dangerous place to take a stroll through. You know how powerful this hose is." Maddog laughed, "and I ain't even talking about what I am holding."

Some of the other miners began laughing too.

Carlos saw Rodrigo approaching. He doubted anything good would come from this, considering he was about to hijack the mining operation and likely end up killing whoever protested.

"Oh umm hi Senor," Carlos said. Carlos ran a short distance to where Travis was watching. He whispered quickly in the boy's ear.

"Travis, try and distract Rodrigo. This gringo does not deserve to die. Get him out if away from her if you can."

Travis walked up to Rogrigo. Travis for had a somewhat bright idea.

"Boy am I glad to see ya here sheriff. My ma said a bandit came the other night and threatened to violate her goodness. She said he forced her to give him 50 dollars or else he would. This guy said he is coming back again and that she better have another 50 tonight or he would."

Travis looked at Rodrigo with puppy dog eyes. "Could you please help my ma and stay with her. Please?!"

Eva smiled sweetly but clenched her fists behind her back. Stupid innuendos.
"Oh my, so you are mining, aren't you?" she said with a feigned sudden realization. "For what? Gold, I reckon? Or copper? Oh, all this dust is making me kind of faint!"
Eva stumbled a few yards over and took a seat on a rock. She noticed Rodrigo out of the corner of her eye. Who the hell was he?

Rodrigo wasn't too interested in the mining work being done, but the presence of Travis made him suspicious, especially due to the fact that he seemed to be diverting him.
"Sure, Travis, sure," he said, smiling as he watched the cannons shut off in the distance.
"I will certainly check that out for ya. But what brings you here if your mom's in such trouble? Shouldn't you be looking out for her?"

Travis voice started to wobble a bit because he just wasn't any good at telling lies.

"Truthfully," Travis said. "I'm here cause Carlos that Mexican guy told me we were gonna get together and kill the man who killed my pa and this is part of the plan."

"I ain't sure how but we are gonna get that water hose to spray the monster with."

Maddog didn't see Rogrigo or the others. He had just set down the extremely loud hose.

"We are mining for some gold to put around your little finger little lady, and whatever other metals we find."

Maddog studied Eva's face. "Boy you shar have a perty mouth."

"How would you like to to see the inside of some real mining barracks? Like right now!"

"Isn't that kind of dangerous?" Eva said, looking into the mines. She tossed her hair over one shoulder before crossing her arms.
"Oh, I really ought to stop distracting you. Your boss must be nearby and everything, and I wouldn't want you to lose your job."

Rodrigo raised his eyebrows and stared at Travis. Wow, that information came easily. He adjusted his hat on his head.
"A water cannon, huh?" he mused. "Actually, I guess that might do it, but..."
He bit his lip and looked over at the mine again. Motioning with his shoulder, he said, "She's with you too, huh?"

Maddog snorted and laughed.

"Why, I am the supervisor on this production. The owner of the mines live in New York. They don't come out here unless they are showin their rich friends their property out west. But I am the BOSS here!"

Carlos decided that the time to move was now. He had found out who the boss was of the mines and, in addition, Travis seemed to be keeping Rodrigo busy in conversation, besides, what could Rodrigo do to the Rooster?

Carlos snuck up behind Maddog while the miner ogled Eva's chest.

His knife was like silk as it slid around the miner's neck, not cutting just resting there waiting to cut if it had to.

"Gringos!" Carlos yelled as loud as he could so the entire mining opration could hear.

"The Rooster is taking over the sandbox. You all do as I say or I stick your fat hairy pig boss."

Carlos looked around and noticed he had the attention of the miners.

"I need a gringo to run that hose. I am going to bring a Diablo! When it comes the Rooster is going to give it a bath."
