Sniff sniff

 

Rich.

 

"Excuse me, ma'am..." Jabbermouth held a hoof up to Hop apologetically before turning to the green-maned mare seated nearby. "If I may interject...judging by the sound of that bag, you have between twenty and twenty-two bits. That, or a lot of small, metallic tableware items." He smirked, then remember that every other pony he had introduced himself to had been less-than-friendly. So he decided to adopt a new(ish) approach.

 

He extended a hoof to the mare, "The name's Jabbermouth. Please, put that bag away. I'm in a good mood today, so your drink is on me."

OOC   Queen's Cross Station, the train station that's rumoured to be quite as old as the city of Canterlot itself, was crowded with ponies of all sorts. There were the usual and obvious finds at a t

Accent looked a bit shocked from this one guessing of her money, but oblivious to him, she shakes his hoof back.

 

"Oh, thank you. My name is Accent Tap, but you can call me Accent. And, how did you know about how many bits I had in here? Or was that just a lucky guess?"

Star nodded shyly, her blush getting slightly worse. "I um...y-yea ." She said, quickly trotting over to Keeper and Moonbeam, but before leaving...she couldn't help but look back at the mare. "Wow." She said, quietly she turned her head to look where she was going and almost ran into another table, but luckily she managed to correct herself this time.

Hop almost laughed when the mare almost ran into another table. *Lets see. Beautiful, clumsy when distracted and obviously is attracted to me.* Hop turned back to see Jabber hit up another mare about her money. Without a word Hop stood up and began to walk out of the dinner car.

@@Marathon,

Accent looked a bit shocked from this one guessing of her money, but oblivious to him, she shakes his hoof back.

"Oh, thank you. My name is Accent Tap, but you can call me Accent. And, how did you know about how many bits I had in here? Or was that just a lucky guess?"

 

Jabber shrugged nonchalantly. "I'm just real good with money. Part of the family trade, y'know?" He turned to look at Hop, but she had already left her seat without so much as a goodbye. How rude. Slowly turning back around to Accent, he asked "I hope I'm not being too forward, but would you care to join me for a chat? It seems my...friend...has left me."

Moonbeam blushed with embarrassment, as she climbed back up on her hooves. "Oh, I'm so sorry! I can be so clumsy, sometimes...and the stairs and..." she said weakly, trailing off at the end. Moonbeam, you klutz! Watch where you put your hooves next time! she scolded herself in her mind. Nopony is going to like you if you're always tripping over yourself!

 

"Oh, hi Star. Um...Star Song that is," she said with a little forced laugh, as her friend caught up with them.

 

@,

 

 

@@MelancholicMemory

 

 

((Okay, I'm back now!))

 

While Song seemed to be off talking to some other ponies, Moonbeam for some rather unexplained reason had toppled onto Star Keeper. It was rather awkward, after finding it rather hard not to blush. Once they were done seeing if they were both okay Keeper noticed Star Song rejoin them. "Did I miss anything important?"

 

"I uh...Heh heh...yea." She said, distractedly, she tried to focus on where they where going but she found herself always trailing back to the mare at the food carriage. *Ugh, Stop it stop it stop it stop it.* She thought, as they entered the roller rink carriage. "Oh wow...its uh...bigger than I thought." She said, to no pony in particular.

@@Marathon,

 

 

Jabber shrugged nonchalantly. "I'm just real good with money. Part of the family trade, y'know?" He turned to look at Hop, muttering to her "Would you mind at all if she joined our table? Because I know you and I have hit it off oh-so-well." He gave her a joking, jovial smile.

Accent looked at him a bit funny, wondering what he meant.

 

"Uh, sure, Jabbermouth...", she hesitantly responded.

 

*This is odd.. What does he mean about "hitting it off"? Is he trying to swindle me out of a date? I haven't dated in a long time though... Hmm... Maybe I should talk with him.*

 

"You know, this is just a small part of what I won at the casino a while ago. About 500-600 bits more in my room."

"I've never been to one, so I wouldn't know, but this is certainly a big room alright. I wonder where we get our skates. Do either of you know?" she asked, with an air of nervousness still lingering in her voice from before. I hope he doesn't think I'm weird or anything.

Star Keeper tilted his head in confusion. Maybe she was just fooling around, or maybe she was nervous. "I- I guess, but what does that have to do with those ponies?" Keeper peered over her shoulder to look a the others apparently having a good time at the counter. "Do you know them? They don't seem like the friendly type."

 

@@MelancholicMemory,

 "Skates? Umm, I don't know sorry. Should we ask?"

Six hundred bits.

Bits.

 

Hundred.

 

"Ahurr, habedda dableh..." For a moment, Jabber's mind went completely blank. Six hundred bits! And a casino! This vacation was suddenly a lot more interesting. But for now, he was looking like a complete moron. In front of the pretty mare. The rich pretty mare.

 

"Ahem...sorry about that. Wow, you sure are lucky! I tried winning big in a casino in Hoofington one time, but the guards threw me out. Something about counting cards or whatever."

"N-No...I don't know her...I mean them." She said, in a slightly disappointed tone. "And I think you can rent skates over there." She said, pointing her hoof at a nearby counter where there was a bored looking sales pony...surrounded by roller skates. "Correction...you can rent slates over there." She said, with a small smile.

"Yeah, I really got lucky at that point. It was actually my first time playing the slots. I just put in 5 bits, pulled the lever, and got 3 7's in a row. Now, I can add that to my gig pays. That's like, probably double from what I won today. I would need to check but, yeah.", Accent said, still oblivious to Jabbermouth's greed. Edited by Rose~So~Lucky

After a moment, Encore realised the noncommittal shrug he gave was entirely ineffective. Sighing inwardly and inaudibly at his own inconsideration, he said, "Well, alright, I guess. I don't see why not. They probably have some tea at the cafe, if they don't serve any at the Starbucks in the lounge."

Unholy walked into her room and dropped her bag on the floor.

Ugh! you fool of a zebra! why would you ever think such a great pony would be interested in somepony like you... did you not just hear how exasperated he sounded?! you have no chance! Unholy thought with a sigh.

She turned around and shook her head, then proceeded to head out the door.

"alright... ready to go?" She asked, half-downheartedly.

"Yep," Encore responded, and, misinterpreting the cause of Unholy's downtrodden tone, said, "Well... Cheer up. We probably won't have to go more than two cars down." He patted her on the back somewhat clumsily, and smiled, leading her down out of the carriage.

 

(I'll do a brief skip just so we can get with the rest of the ponies, if you don't mind.)

 

Encore had just taken Unholy's hoof and helped her cross into the lounge carriage when he saw it was positively crowded with ponies. He peered over their heads to see the Starbucks menu. "Oh. Good. They have tea at the coffee joint."

"Well, that's a heck of a first round of slots! To have that kind of luck...is that your cutiemark or somethin'? Insane luck? I've found it is polite not to stare, especially at that region, so...I have no idea what your cutiemark is." He leaned back in his chair and nursed his cup of coffee. "If you'd care to tell your story, I'd love to hear it."

Accent smiled at him, taking a sip of her lemonade. "Well, I'm a percussionist. I'm a bit of a professional at any kind of percussion instrument. And I happen to go to gigs sometimes, mainly if there's a drumset player needed, or a backup percussionist. That's generally my life."

Unholy heard the voices of other ponies, she twitched her ear as they spoke.

"can you lead me to the counter so i can order something?" Unholy whispered in Encore's ear, for some reason, she didn't want any of the other ponies to hear her.

Gosh... I wonder how many ponies are here... she thought.

"Oh, okay," she said weakly "Let's go get our skates then." She walked up to the counter, gave the worker her size, and was given a set of skates. She sat at a bench, doing her best to get the skates on right.

 

Finally, when all of them were on, she stood up and tried to step forward. She immediately lost her balance, wobbling about chaotically until she fell to the ground. Not again! No, she thought, her friends would really think she's stupid now.

 

She whined meekly as she tried to get back on all fours, to no avail. Finally, she climbed up the little wall seperating the rink from the skate rental area, and managed to swing around to the other side. She had actually gotten on the roller rink.

A musician! This pleased Jabbermouth greatly. "Oh, I do so love music. None of this newer, bass-loaded 'party' music, though - no, I prefer the classics. Especially "Song of the Blacksmith" in Molt's Second Suite in Eb. Have you heard that piece? It requires an expert percussionist to play the anvil. But you make yourself sound talented enough that I bet you would be superb at it."

Hop decided to go check on the mare seeing that Jabbet seemed to have forgoten about her. She entered a car and saw a roller rink. She saw the mare from not too long ago but didnt approach her directly, but waited to see if the mare would spot her. Most likely she would, but if not then oh well.

Accent sort of blushed at Jabbermouth, not expecting the compliment.

 

"Oh, thank you. No I haven't heard of that piece yet, but I'm sure it's quite well. I'm a bit into modern music. I normally play for rock bands than classical. But it's still nice. You know, you're very sweet for all of these compliments."

Star Keeper watched in discomfort as Moonbeam attempted to skate. Eventually he just couldn't sit back and watch anymore, trotting up to the rental desk and handing over his money. "Just get me some skates and fast."

 

"Oh that's right, I can't skate either." Keeper staggered across the awkward surface with pitiful speed and grace. His teeth clenched and his eyes widened he tried to regain control of his hooves. After remaining still for a few seconds he felt a sense of relief  "Well, this isn't so bad."

 

Kicking off again he plowed face first into the hardwood ground, letting out a rather un-manly squeal in the process. "Well that's just great!"

Star had just finished getting on her skates...after helping Moonbeam up of course.

She shakily got to her hooves and slowly made her way onto the rink, luckily there weren't many other ponies on the rink so they had lots of room to learn. She slowly pushed with her back hoof and smiled. "This isn't to tough." She muttered...but moments later she looked up at saw the mare from the bar...which of course made Star accidentally skate into one of the wall's of the rink.

"Well, what can I say? A lovely mare such as yourself brings out the best in a pony." He winked at her before gazing out at the rolling landscape through the window. "So, a percussionist with a way with slots climbs onto a train bound for who-knows-where. What does she expect to find on her journey?"

Moonbeam inched along the wall nervously, until she saw Star Keeper fall as well. She pushed off of the wall gently, bending her knees and floating along with all of the dignity and grace of a cat being put in a bath. She stopped right in front of Keeper, and held out a hoof to help him up. "Are you okay?" she asked bashfully
