-BC was a little thirsty, and he figured if he was going to move on, he needed to top off his tank. He shifted into reverse, pulled a K-turn, shifted into drive, and went back to town, pulling up at the same pump he had earlier that day. With the can set on top of his header so he could actually drink, BC sucked down some of his favorite fuel, and for the most part, kept to himself... until he saw Jade, and the folks from the cave.- Hey... is everyt'in' alright? -He asked of the group. BC never could say his TH's.-

Jade had been preoccupied with watching Grayston and seeing that he wasn't causing any trouble, but now she knew that he was up to something and that something wasn't good. Oh, if she could just get him alone and find out what he means to do with Jolsten.
Krill just replied softly, "It's alright. I'm here."
Juni led her parents to the diner.
"Yeah, they sure do," laughed Sapphire. Soon, the two pulled up to the ledge of the Butte.
Sapphire called down to Ceri and Chase, who have just crossed the finish line, "Hey, you two speed demons! Wanna stop and head to the diner for something to eat?"
Ceri paused and glanced up to see her parents. "Oh, alright."
Adrian chose to ignore Krill's words. Things weren't alright, her father was in some sort of comatose state, and there were two wizards which would be very interested in what was under his hood.
She noticed the combiner, and realized by then that he was not one of the locals. "Things are bit, off, so to speak." She said, speaking carefully as Grayston was there. "I just noticed that you are not from around here, what brings you here, as tourist season is over?"
Well, I travel everywhere, I don't really got a home. -BC took a sip of his fuel.- My herd kind of... migrated without me. -Typical combines traveled and lived in migrant herds that went from place to place to work.- I woke up one morning, an' d'ey was gone... so I figure, they didn't want me d'ere, why chase after 'em? It's hard tuh find places dat'll let ya stay d'ere when combines don't exactly have da greatest o' reputations. I set out, hopin' I can try to change that image a li'l bit. -BC explained to Adrian, finishing off his can, and ordering another.-

Meredith just glanced at Grayston and frowned. "More like smug," she muttered irritably to Luke, "Like he just accomplished something."
Juni only quickly glance at Grayston and pulled up between her parents.
Boost had been sitting there just glaring at Grayston. He had managed to keep Sheila away from him.
"Alright, then let's go back then," replied Sapphire, "Everybody else are already probably there."
Ebony just sat and stared at the whole situation, wondering just what was going to happen. Her mother was beside her, wondering the same thing.
Jade was thinking, Remember Grayston. I still have control over your powers. Try anything and I'm onto you. She had hidden the vial in her compartment for now, as she was planning on showing it to Grayston when she has caught him alone.
"I'm Maven Sanders," replied Maven, "Daughter of Ebony."
I don't know. I kind-uh like duh life I'm leadin'. I guess it would be nice to stay in one place a little longer. My fear is just dat I don't wanna seem like the rest of my kind, if y'know what I mean. -BC sipped his new can of fuel.- I don't wanna seem scary, or mean. I'm not like dat... an' dat's duh kind-uh attitude it takes to lead a herd. -BC remembered his grandfather, the leader of his original herd. He was a ruthless, senile old combine with nothing better to do than threaten smaller vehicles.-

Maven smiled pleasantly, "Nice to meet you, Edward. Do you want to go back? Your mom would be really worried about you right now."
"I don't like the sound of that," said Meredith.
"Okay," Ceri revved her engine and taking off like a shot. Her mother laughed and followed after her daughter.
Jade pulled out of her stall and approached Grayston. "You and I need to talk. It's important. Meet me later on at the Butte. Alone. Please don't be late." With that, the Enzo pulled away, not even giving Grayston a chance to answer as she would broke no resistence.
She then headed over to her shop where Indigo was waiting anxiously for her.
