Charlotte shrugged. "Well, as you already know, I'm not exactly busy right now. And I'm definitely in the market for something else to think about. So boring or not, tell away."

"You can blame it on my boss, when I was kid I got in a rough spot and lost everything. He did me a solid you know? Took me in, trained me and essentially raised me. Taught me everything I know. Which in comparison to everything he knows, isn't all that much, but it's enough." Thinking back to those dark days hurt. A lot. So she did wheat she always did and pushed the memories out of her head as quickly as possible.

"This job was about the money until you showed up. The reward for bringing this gang down isn't insignificant you know."

Charlotte nodded. "That's good. I'm glad he took you in. My parents died, but I had someone like that, too. It's nice when people who aren't related to you care about you like that." She felt a pang of guilt again about running away; if she could go back and change it, she would. The Marshal and Jed were probably worried sick.

As the conversation topic shifted to Meyer and his gang, Charlotte hugged her knees to her chest, thinking about how hard it had been to take them down already. "Yeah. Sorry, I guess I really complicated things. I hope it works out. If I can help in any way--even if just by staying out of the way, let me know."

Abby stood once again and laid her hand on Charlotte's shoulder, "You'll be okay kid, just don't try anything stupid." With that, she left the tent and went off in search of Daniel.

Having drawn the map in relatively good detail , Abigail took a step back and admired her work. "They are keeping her in a tent, on this side of their camp."

"This is all military styled camping," the Marshal said, looking over the map. "There used to be a gang that broke off from the Southern Cross that would hang around here--that was back when you were kids."

She glanced up at Jed, then back down.

"It could be possible this is the same group, just older."

Jed stepped up to the table, set his hat down and studied the impromptu map, "I assume that only means that they've got more experience, more weaponry and more men than your typical gang. Lovely. If anyone has any ideas, I'm all ears."

"Last time, they owed a...friend of mine a debt," the Marshal said, fingering the map. "Of course, having to shoot their captain didn't help much. Reasoning with them won't do much good, especially if you're friend could not manage to persuade them."

She studied the map for a few minutes, then smiled slightly.

"I think I might have an idea...."

Abigail sighed, wishing that this Marshal would spit it out already. "Well don't be shy, because any plan is better than just going in there guns blazing. That's one surefire way of getting a lot of people killed."

"This plan is going to require that I know the name of your employer," the Marshal said, not looking up.

"He'll probably kill me for this, but if you insist his name is Winchester, Daniel Winchester. Does it ring any bells?"

"Not particularly, but if he makes it a habit of keeping his name as close as you've made it sound, I'd be willing to bet that's not even his real name--just his favorite," the Marshal replied. "You said he's good at everything, but he has to specialize. I need to know everything about how he fights."

"First of all, he's physically massive so he plays that to his advantage. Really just excellent at hand-to-hand, well, hand to metal hand anyways. Not a bad shot, but that isn't exactly his specialty."

"What do you mean, metal hand?" the Marshal asked, glancing up at Abby.

"Does it shoot lightnin' bolts? Poison tree frog darts? Knife blades hidden under the finger nails? Or is it one of those boring metal hands that don't do anythin' special?" Caldwell interjected.

"Well, it does metal hand stuff. For starters. Usually he covers it with a glove, but if he really wants to scare the bejeepers out of someone, it's an effective tactic."

"So he quite literally lost his hand and had it replaced," the Marshal mused. "And we know that they hate me, because I shot their boss, but more importantly...."

She glanced at Caldwell and then looked over at Jed, a slight smile dancing on her lips.

"...they hate him. They hate him more than they hate me. It might be time for Caldwell to get his chance to run."
