Maddog did liked the appearance of Wade even less. than Carols. These strip mines were owned by one of the richest landowners/tycoons in America. This delay in operations was already going to cost a fortune.

Maddog tried to get Eva's attention, since she was a woman, he figured she would be sympathetic.

"Hey little lady, I didn't mean no harm. If you have your friends move on we can forget this thing ever happened."

He also looked at Wade "You need money there fella, these mines are loaded with rich ore, you help me out and I can see you get a portion."

Wade continued to search though his bag while keeping an eye on his internal display from the mechanical bird he released, so far negative results.

He pulled out four objects of similar size, two of which resembled throwing dagger, the other two were more akin to daggers designed for punching. Both of which appeared to made out of the same matte black material, and oddly enough had no sharp edges, which largely seemed to defeat the concept. He loaded these into a black bandoleer and strapped them around his shoulder.

Next he pulled out an easily recognizable object, however it was made popular by Albert. Harlequin's Kiss which Wade designed earlier to be used by Albert, was now being strapped to his right forearm.

He paused for a moment and took a few steps to re-join the group.

"I've detected The Baptist's along with two others who I have identified as Hellister and he pet bat. The device I released earlier was releasing a faint blood trail that will lead them to our area. Take whatever last steps needed to ready yourself, it will not be long now. Approximately point five miles out and now closing fast."

His voice was now more solid, and he no longer paused for breath. An astute listener could however detect a slight digital muffle of his normal tone.

Marius nodded his head as the Rooster told him to move closer. He turned back and felt his stomach drop. Wade had the same weapon the Baptist had used on Nigel. The same weapon that nearly killed him brother. Marius felt fear enter his veins his heart pounded as he heard that the Baptist was five minutes away. It wouldnt be long before Marius would find out if this was a trap afterall. Marius quickly strode up to the Rooster. He leaned his face close to the Roosters ear.

"That man back there with the strange birds...he led you here to..he led us all here he knows something and he's not telling us it...if this plan doesnt work out I'm putting a hole in his leg and we're interrogating him this just smells like a set up." Marius whispered slowly so that the Rooster could understand the plan. Marius refused to die here. Even worse he refused to let a coward set him up in a trap like this and get away with it.

Eva looked back at Maddog. "No, we've gotta do this. It's unfortunate that you guys got caught in the middle of it, yeah. But it really doesn't have all that much to do with the mine."
She yawned and kicked at the dirt, quickly growing restless in her position. She had formed the vigilantes, but somehow she doubted she was still in control. She wasn't even sure if they could be called vigilantes anymore. But it didn't matter all that much.

Maddog looked pretty desperately at Eva. He had several thoughts running through his head.

His mining crew was still on the scene. Were these people so dumb to think that they would get away with killing him? Surely his mining crew would tear them limb from limb if his life was snuffed out.

Carlos gave Eva somewhat a sharp and harsh look after Marius had spoken.

He knodded to Marius.

"This masked man the Rooster does not know. The Rooster does not know why he is here. Maybe he is a friend of senorita Eva, maybe they are going to try and kill us after we kill the Diablo of the mines. Then they will go into town and take all of the Rooster's reward money and claim they killed the Diablo."

Carlos paused for a moment in thought and then spoke again, with a softer voice, to Marius.

"Once the Diablo goes down, watch him closely. I can throw my knife to about 11 feet. If I can stay in range I maybe kill him real quick right after. See what he hides under his mascara."

"The Rooster no likes those birds he has."

Carlos bit maddog's ear out of frustration.

"If the devil falls we break into his house and get him there" Marius replied still whispering so no others could see.

"In the open he could be being...watched by friends...we need to isolate him" Marius said coldly he then turned over to Eva. He smirked remembering Elaina West. It was just so odd that Marius would come across someone like her. Marius strode up to her quickly and gave her a pat on the back.

"You hurt? I'll try to be more help this time" Marius said his voice sounded oddly friendly. In fact he was very excited to be reunited with his militia once again. He even missed Mr. Hallow.

The Baptist was suddenly assaulted by the stench of Wade, his existence was an affront to nature. The smell was far to overpowering to be a trace scent, he knew Wade was near. He knew that this time he would not allow Wade to escape.

He heart began to pound in his chest and his skin began to smoke with the burnt impurities in his metallic skin. He quickly begin to light up as a sun, casting a burning glow on all around him. The dust cast in the air from the nearby mine ignited as it drifted by him and the earth was turned to scorched hollow pits wherever he stepped.

"Wade," he managed to bellow in a deep voice that sounded as the earth moving. He began to to run in wide fast steps, swinging his free arm rapidly and holding his sword tight against his side.

The Baptist had tunnel vision to everything else, his eyes narrowed to directly ahead of him. He smelled where the scent was coming from and nothing else mattered in his mind.

Carlos heard the bellow of the monster. He turned the miner in the direction the yell had erupted from.

"Not yet gringo," Carlos whispered into Maddog's ear which now had a steady trickle of blood running down it where Carlos had chomped into it.

"When the diablo is within 50 feet then we blast it." Carlos held the tip of the knife against Maddog's neck.

"Oh Wade you shouldn't have," Hellister said approaching from the exact oppositte side that Albert was coming from.

"You threw a surprise party for us and everything, and lookey there, you even wore a cute mask and everything." Hellister took a long draw from his cigarette.

"Too bad you didn't wear some party prefume, my keen vampiric nose can smell your stink that identifies you."

Hellister was carrying the corpse of a woman that Dellister had dug up at the graveyard.

"I figured you might want some girls at this party so I brought one, though she is a bit stiff right now I will liven her up."

Hellister laughed, "in a moment, when the dancing starts."

Travis reappeared on the scene. He had his dog with him and it was panting heavily. Goop had tracked Albert all the way back to the mines.

Travis avoided the scary looking guy in the mask and made a huge arc around Albert so as not to be killed at once.

Travis ran up to Rodrigo, "That is him," Travis said pointing at Albert, "That is the man who killed my pa, you must arrest him at once so he can be hung until dead and then we all can get back to doin our lives and such."

Wade took a moment to think about the amplifying information, he considered the actions of the departed Karry and wondered how comparable the newly risen corpse would be to her. He had to consider when Delister would enter the fray, and where he would choose to strike first. He still wasn't certain if he would be able to deal with Albert when he wasn't at full strength, he was taking too few risks.

He decided the best course of action was to follow his original plan and moved back to his bag. He pulled out what looked like a black shoulder pad, and placed it on which secured itself to his suit with no visible way of it attaching. A number of thin metallic cords began to rapidly move down his arms, ending by coiling around his fingers. He then quickly grabbed what looked like two black plates he attaches to his belt, though they give no sign of their use.

He then take one last item from the bag before kicking it off to the side. A small pistol like weapon that he had yet to show to anybody.

He moves back to the group.

"Those of you with firearms focus on Hellister, the corpse, or the bat, it won't hurt Albert. Those on the hose team keep calm and be ready to move if he moves up too close."

He keeps close to the rest of the group and begins to tap on his wrist piece, sending silent messages to the mechanical birds overhead.

"What the hell?" Rodrigo said, though it sounded as more of a quiet statement then a question. He had come prepared for something strange, but he didn't really expect all of these things to happen at once. He motioned for Travis to get behind him. He listened to what Wade said about aiming at Hellister, and so he did so, not knowing quite what it was that was coming out of that mine, but he knew enough to know that his weapons wouldn't be of much use.
He moved closer to the group.

Eva stood her ground with her guns still pointed at the mining team. She smiled briefly at Marius.
"Well, good luck," she said, shrugging. "You should help cover that guy. He doesn't seem all that tough in comparison. Once we get rid of them we can focus on Albert."

A dark cloud blew in from the horizon. How odd it must have looked to those below because it was the only cloud in the sky.

In addition, the cloud was so dark as to look black, and peculiarly, it settled low in the sky right overhead of the party below. It sat heavy like a rock.

The cloud started to storm bringing down a torrent of hail. Then Dellister dipped out from it.

He had in his tiny hands 2 tiny corpses of babies which were obviously reanimated noted by their writhing. He dropped one down to Wade and another near Rodrigo.

The one near Wade stood up and waddled over to him with a smile. Then it leaped at once. Where it had once a mouth of just gums, someone had modified the baby to have a mouth full of sharpened steel needles used to make a row of teeth.
