"Hmm? Oh, you've never heard of putting lavender oil in your hair?" the Marshal made a face. "Helps kill and prevent lice. Isn't a fail safe method, but good enough for the West."

"Are you freaking serious? Growing up my Natet would break out the snips at the first sight of a bug. You're telling me I could have used friggen oil all these years? Do you know what walking around bald does to a sixteen year old's psyche?"

The marshal snickered, the coughed shortly.

"Natet?" she asked. "You're from the Pacific coast?"

"No ma'am, my lineage is strictly eastern, up until the last generation when my parents moved west. It's complicated you see, but long story short my Natet took me in after some trouble, raised me, pretty much. I do believe that he hails from the coast, however."

"So I take it Winchester isn't his given name. Alright, I suppose that makes sense. Not like anyone uses their real name out here anyway," the Marshal shrugged again. "We've got a few hours until dark. Fancy anything before we head out?"

Abigail thought for just a moment before settling internally upon her decision. "Yeah, I'll take some tea if you've got any of that."

---

As dusk settled across the desert landscape, the two women rode out of town, casting long shadows upon the sandy ground. In the background Abby could hear Jed rustling him up a mob, a cutting din that burst through the otherwise calm evening atmosphere.

"It's a lovely day for a shootout, eh?"

"Silver bullets under a full moon," the Marshal replied. "Let's hope it's good luck."

She fiddled with something, then held out her hand.

"Here, take this."

Abby outstretched her right arm and retrieved the object from Mercy's grasp, it was a simple corded bracelet, unadorned by metal of any kind, but red in color. Crimson red ropes intertwined in so many ways. It was a simple type of beauty, but a type that Abigail herself could relate too.

"What's this for?"

"Good luck. Hopefully. I'm never quite sure which set of superstitions packs the most punch, but this particular one has never let me down yet."

"Thank you, I appreciate it," she replied, fastening the bracelet to her non-firing wrist. "I've never had much need for superstition though."

"Sound's about right ma'am, lucks never shined too brightly on me but once or twice in my life. Unless you count the bad, in which case I've been on the receiving end of more luck than I'd prefer."

The Marshal glanced at Abby.

"Oh?" she asked, shifting her reins slightly.

"The wild west is full of sad stories Marshal, as I'm sure you're aware. Mine no more interesting or special than any other, it just comes with the territory you know?"

"You got that right. So you wanna fill me in on the nitty gritty details of this little plan of yours, or are we just riding up guns blazing?"
