You've heard of the story, of the couple by the name of Bonnie and Clyde, you have haven't you?  A love story so rich and real, a person would kill for it.  Well Vasco was part of a love story just like that one.  And his Bonnie was a true dime, a woman of intelliegnce and a extraoridnary level of loyalty.  But, he lost his Bonnie, lost her due to her level of loyalty, to rather protect him them herself from forces that where too much.  Paige, that's her name.  And, he's been out to find her again it was like a missing part to him.  One that he needed to be there.

Vasco had heard about a group who lived in a casino, what he had heard it made sense for Paige to have ended up there.  A rough scene, a murderous group with low morals like there own.  After all, you don't have very high morals if you use too steal and kill others for there stuff, after all, it only benefited the two of them.  But, it also seemed like the perfect place for them to go.  Frankly, he already could guess Paige would be mad at him when she first sees him.  Why wouldn't she be?  After all, he left her and oh how long has been a year or two, who knows anymore when it comes to the date of things.  So much has happened since he was with her last and he been meaning to tell her all stories he has.

The seventeen year old was wearing a leather jacket, an old white t-shirt but he found bleach for the shirt not too long ago so it was pretty clean looking, black jeans that had been ripped in the knees, and then black boots that were a bit worn in the soles.  A chain around his neck that was a family heirloom was a good distinguisher if someone knew who he was.  So, what about if Paige isn't there, well he'd just move onto the next like how he has been.  Fixing the strap of the backpack he wore he looked around at the border of the badlands.  He was expecting more signs like; 'turn back', 'passersby will be shot', or maybe even 'danger: caution ahead'. 

Crossing his arms as he stood at the border he knew it was better to not just walk over, but hey no one was coming and he'd been there for about thirty minutes.  Can't expect him too just there right?  Taking a step over the border his eyes gleamed with its usual mischief and wonder.

the princess ✦
Anastasia "Paige" Montgomery - a poly bi sixteen-year-old girl who is part of the badlands. She tends to not show emotion, either having her signature family scowl or just rbf. Personality wise she's sarcastic, snarky, and sassy; she tends to be more of an asshole or giving smart remarks. She's currently single and only acts nice to those she crushes on due to being unable to be mean to them.
aa
How about the duo of JD and Veronica? A duo from Heathers that start out romantic but end as toxic and deadly as they come? They kill together, get away with it together, but their end is much romantic than that of Bonnie and Clyde. These two were much more Bonnie and Clyde. They'd die for each other, that's how it was two years ago, how it was when she ran into him the first time, and how it was now. Even when she didn't know he was alive, it was still her mindset.

Paige's body count was higher than people thought as the past two years she had been much more...dainty. There was always a hope that Vasco was alive, that his body wasn't actually...dead when she had seen it those years ago. She hadn't really killed anyone while joining the badlands, well she may have but just hadn't said anything. She had tried to seem less Bonnie more princess since she came. It seemed to have worked, but it would crumble down at the new arrival.

She was the sign to stay away, or at least, to anyone else she probably would be. The blonde appeared at the border with no intent on who she'd come face to face with. Her mouth closed as soon as it opened, originally going to demand what they were doing, but seeing who was there, a loss of words. She had told Cat if she saw Vasco again, she'd kill him. Every bone in her body had agreed, until she came face to face with him.

Her barbed wire bat practically fell out of her hand, it was obvious if she moved her hand, it would fall onto the ground. She couldn't kill him, god, not him. Anyone else? Sure. But not him. Paige had gone out without the sunglasses, she claimed she felt better. Her black eye was mostly still there, her lip was close to healed. The injuries she got for protecting him were almost gone, but the look of betrayal in her eyes was as fresh as the second she realized how outmatched she was that day.

The bat fell to the ground as she stepped towards him, not even thinking on it. A loud smack could be heard as her hand connected to his cheek. A pathetic, weak, and pitiful move but it was all she could do. There were too many conflicting emotions to punch him and there was too much feeling of affection to kill him or hit him with the bat. "You lied to me. Those dumb bastards almost killed me! There were two men after you! Vasco do you realize how innocent this group sees me? I couldn't have just killed them like two years ago!" she snapped, though she seemed angry, betrayed, or even upset there was a major part of her that just wanted to go to him. Kiss him, make sure he was okay.

But she was a strong woman, Bonnie was strong with or without Clyde. Veronica was more intellegent and better off without JD. She refused to admit such desires, even if it was readable on her face. "Why are you here?"

He didn't see much of the scene before him, but he had only just heard the tail-end of it all. Paige was questioning this stranger's presence here, and there was something that told him that this was no ordinary trespasser. His gaze darted in between the two, and the Officer made his way forward and grunted, "You know him?" His voice was completely drained of any warmth. He was tired, damn tired. His friend was gravely sick, he was unsure of himself and his identity, he was under more pressure than ever to live up to the expectations of everyone else. It was like multiple hammers pounding down onto him, a soft slab of clay, and shaping him into God knows what. It didn't make for a particularly nice boy, at least not the boy that he had been months before.

"Who is he?" He, frankly, did not care who he directed the question towards. He did not care who answered. He just wanted answers without anymore delay. Gabriel was confused here as it was, and as this person was trespassing, he figured that he should deserve to know on the behalf of the group... At least until Cat arrived. Until this was all clarified, he would remain vigilant and wary of this person, who appeared to be someone a few years older than him. If he knew Paige, then he could certainly expect trouble. He would not be surprised if she was associated with people like herself.

God she had such a grace to her, it was all he could think of when his attention was brought towards the blonde.  He could see her face go from shock to anger as she came closer to him, that bat didn't look to friendly either but he for him it was most defiently his Paige.  He wanted to hug her and try to calm her down, she didn't have any positive reason to want to like him anyways so why would she?  Oh and her eyes, how they reflected the betrayal from him, and oh it pained him to see his sweet heart be like this. 

And suddenly, he felt the sting of the slap that she delivered.  Holding his cheek in his palm for a second, he couldn't help but chuckle with a smirk to add to his features.  "You lied to me. Those dumb bastards almost killed me! There were two men after you! Vasco do you realize how innocent this group sees me? I couldn't have just killed them like two years ago!"  God, she was cute when she was mad.  But, oh boy she was super mad at him at this point.  He really wouldn't mind just hugging her and kissing her at this point, but he also didn't want too piss her off more.  Because, well he knew Paige was capable of holding her own, he knows that she can survive with or without him.  But he knew also that without him, Paige was missing something too.  "why are you here?"

"I know that wasn't alright for me to do Paige, but that was then, this is now.  I've been looking for you this whole time we haven't been together.  Plus, I just came to join this ragtag group you've invested yourself into.  You can't say you haven't missed me, right?"  He spoke, his rough Italian accent from growing up with his entire Italian family who happened to all rather be fluent in the language and their grandparents having a rather thick accent.  He smirked with his words as he looked at the blonde.

His attention was suddenly brought to another person who made an appearance, another teen but most definitely younger then Vasco.  He was rather demanding and so Vasco could guess he was young in a position of some sort of power in this group.  "Who is he?"  The Italian looked at the younger male as he looked at Paige for a split second before deciding to just introduce himself.  "I'm Vasco Fenice, I'm here to join, oh sorry about the whole stepping over your border, you guys were taking too long."  It was blunt and to the point, there was no reason to skip over anything.  I mean besides how he knew Paige, he didn't have to tell him that.

"speech" 'thought' text
tw: mentions alcohol, blood, profanity, themes of violence

He'd been feeling much better these past two days, and while his side still ached from the bullet wound and broken ribs, he was happy at the progress in healing that had gone on. It no longer caused agony for him to walk, sit, lay down, or laugh (this last one he rarely did anyways so it hadn't been too much of a loss). His face showed none of this inward reflection as he walked towards the group of people. There was Paige (a girl he knew mostly in passing), and Gabriel. The latter was a not so secret favorite of the gruff soldiers, though, at times the boy could act as idiotic as any of the youth abiding here.

His attention turned to the stranger who was, indeed over the boarder as he had stated. Mike furrowed his brows at the comment. Seemed this one lacked patience, which was an important attribute to have. Especially in this world, those who could not wait usually ended up worse off than those who could. Well that was oversimplifying it he supposed, then again, he didn't want to get into the whole dynamic of patience and waiting, it was a very complex topic, and without alcohol, very boring.

Mike frowned, folding his arms over his chest as he looked from Vasco to Paige, and then back to Vasco. It was an interesting name to have (no more odd than Catalyst though). The soldier shrugged inwardly, no, it didn't matter what people were named, or what they were called, or hell, what they called themselves... a name was just... a name. A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Shakespeare had it right, names meant little in regards to importance.

Or was that the old author's meaning? Now Mike was curious as to his interpretation of the old play "Romeo and Juliet." What a rabbit trail for him to get sucked down if he had allowed himself to. Instead, he stayed on topic, or at least kept his mind from wandering too far abroad. He had not heard the conversation held by Paige and Vasco, though if he had it was unlikely that he'd have shown any outward interest into their past (outward mind you, he was rather curious inside).

The man let out a soft sigh, and finally spoke. "Well, Vasco." He said his deep voice calm and disinterested. "I'm Ford, as to whether or not you can join, it's up t'the boss." He paused for a moment, pulling aside a random person who was conveniently around. "Grab Cat would ya, tell 'em there's a joiner." With that (and the person on their way), Mike turned his attention back to Vasco and his final comment.

He was curious as to how he should really respond, he could play it cool, he could chose to ignore it, he could intimidate the boy... all of these options seemed drab, boring really. "Or perhaps you were just impatient." He raised a hand to stop Vasco should he decide to interrupt. "Patience is a very important attribute to have, especially in this world," Well, he was one to talk. He was inwardly a very impatient man, though he tried his best to stem his hatred of waiting.

"Regardless," He continued calmly, crossing his arms over his chest once more. "It is, perhaps, not the best first impression you could give us." That was true enough, and had he not been a joiner, Mike would have been tempted to break his legs. Scratch that, Mike was already tempted to break his legs, but he wouldn't, because that was... something he wasn't supposed to do. God, how could living in the Badlands be so boring?
MICHAEL FORD
Michael Ford is a 45 year old, man, he's stubbornly loyal to whatever cause he chooses, protective of his family and friends, he's a grunt in the Badlands. Michael has issues controlling his anger in most situations. He is a difficult opponent and well trained, feel free to power play nonviolent interactions though.

Gabriel nearly sneered at this guy's response. He just thought that blatantly waltzing past the borders and barging in was okay, and that he would be let into the Badlands with no problem? He didn't care if he knew Paige or not, he seemed like plain trouble. Then again, everyone here was.

The teenager would retort, "You know, borders are there for a reason. For future reference, maybe it would be smart not to cross them." Sarcasm upon the tongue was unusual for the boy, who usually tended to keep negative thoughts bottled up. No matter who he was talking to, he never said these things out loud. On a final note, he mumbled, "Not everyone is so friendly about trespassers." Catalyst specifically told people not to attack potential joiners, but there were always those that didn't listen and "made their own rules". They would attack without hesitation; as would Gabe, but seeing as this person did not ( currently ) pose a threat then he was let off the hook this time around.

But, like Michael said, it was up to Catalyst whether or not this "Vasco" stayed. The older Officer had taken the wheel of the conversation, so to speak, so he shut his mouth for now. His gaze lingered on Paige and the stranger, though, as he simply observed their interaction.

If there was one thing Catalyst had always made a point of avoiding, it was relationship drama. They didn't catch feelings, and they didn't let anyone else catch them either. The one time they'd come close had ended poorly enough as it was without adding proper heartbreak to the mix.

"What's going on here?" Someone had told them that there was a boy there, one that seemed to know Paige. "This guy's trying to join, is that right?"

this is shitty but it's for the best if they heard Vasco call BL ragtag they'd get personally offended

Vasco's attention was pulled away from the other male too an older male who had ended up approaching the grouping of people.  In all honesty Vasco didn't really care if any of them ended up liking him, after all, he was never the type to go out of his way to have people like him.  "I'm Ford, as to whether or not you can join, it's up t'the boss." Ford? Probably a last name he'd guess but it also worked for a first name.  And suddenly the male turned his attention to another randomer member too have them get the so called 'boss'.  Well if Vasco knew anything that'd be the leader, and what did he say the name was? Cat?  He wondered if that was a short version of the name they actually had or if it was there legitmate name.  Either way, he couldn't deny it was easy to remember at least.  Vasco didn't see a reason to respond it was obvious that he was here to join, specially already stating that.

"You know, borders are there for a reason. For future reference, maybe it would be smart not to cross them."  Raising a brow as his attention was brought back to the younger male.  "Not everyone is so friendly about trespassers."  Friendly; well he supposed if it hadn't been Paige he wouldn't have been smacked (but he also deserved that one).  Vasco was just one of those type of people that when he has a goal he'll do what it takes to reach that goal.  And the goal was to see Paige, and stepping over that border was a quick way of completing that goal.  "I'll keep that as a note."  He spoke simply, though he already knew that it wasn't smart to just cross it, but he also wasn't trying to dig himself into a hole of these people disliking him even more. 

And once again his attention was taken away from the boy to the elder.  "Or perhaps you were just impatient."  He saw the guy raise his hand to him to not speak if he thought about it, but frankly Vasco wasn't going to even try.  Vasco didn't appreciate lectures of topics he was already knowledgeable of.  It just seemed like a waste of time to be honest, but then again it was kind of a waiting game till this boss showed up.
 "Patience is a very important attribute to have, especially in this world."

"Patience is a virtue, but if I didn't go over that border, I'd still be standing there waiting."  He wasn't wrong, he'd been standing there for a while, any normal person in their right mind would've got tired on waiting.  Plus, he didn't really have time to just sit there when he could take actions into his hands.

"What's going on here?"  This one was a new voice, and so his attention was pulled to it hoping this would be the Boss.  "This guy's trying to join, is that right?"  Why does everyone keep asking that as if it's not obvious.  It was almost ridiculous, but hey, he'll play nice and answer this question for the millionth time it feels like.  Looking to the younger boy, then to the guy named Ford, then to Paige, and then back to the new person.  Well, he hadn't heard anyone say anything yet, so he might as well right?

"Yeah I'm here to join,"  He spoke his Italian accent tickled the air as he spoke, "my name is Vasco Fenice."

Personality wise she's sarcastic, snarky, and sassy; she tends to be more of an asshole or giving smart remarks. She's currently single and only acts nice to those she crushes on due to being unable to be mean to them.

"Wipe that smirk off your face, Mr. Fenice, or I'll do it for you." she threatened with narrow eyes, refusing to admit that she had missed him or that she always hoped he was still alive. No. Even though she knew it was pointless, that Vasco knew already that she did, that she missed him like crazy because that's who she was, she wouldn't admit it. Besides, her loyalty was to the Badlands now, she wore a necklace to prove she was part of it and she didn't waste almost two years to submit to this Italian boy upon first sight. Not now, not ever.

Hearing him call the Badlands a 'ragtag' group, she scoffed "Watch your choice of words, Vasco. I definitely wouldn't use 'ragtag' as a descriptor for this group. Nor would I use stupid, so watch yourself." take it as a warning from a friend, or a threat, either way she was just trying to help him.

Then the others would show up. Gabe, Mike, then eventually Cat. She was constantly cut off, thus leaving her quiet and glaring at the 'possible joiner' anytime something came out of his mouth that could possibly get him...killed. However it wouldn't be until Cat arrived that she really, well, paid close attention. Vasco admitted to wanting to join and right away she wished she opened her mouth.

"I reccomend you give me your weapon then, Vasco. I know Mike or Gabe could kill you, hell even Cat could, but we don't want the trouble that comes with it." She budged in, holding her hand out to her counterpart with a glare. He wasn't going to mention he knew her? Good. Fine. Then she'll act the same way and if she knew him, which she did, then she knew he was armed and the last thing she wanted? This idiot to try and take over the badlands by attacking one of them. It would be a stupid choice, but it's been too long so she wouldn't put it completely past him.

Under normal circumstances, this all would have been easy enough to deal with, welcome the kid in, show him the ropes. But there was something off about this, some weird, tense, unresolved issue between Vasco and Paige. They studied the teenager closely, but analyzed Paige just as, if not more. If this guy was some sort of threat to her, they didn't want him anywhere near her.

Aside from an attentive look, it was hard to tell what was going on in their head. When Paige spoke up, they lifted a hand to their heart in mock offense. "Ragtag? Stupid?" They spoke in a clearly feigned aghast tone of voice. Their brows furrowed in genuine irritation and confusion, however, when she said that Mike and Gabe could kill him, maybe even Cat. "Excuse me?" Of the three people she listed, they were the only one she had seen dispatch someone. Two someones, actually. And if you looked at the three of them, Cat was pretty sure anyone would pick Gabe as the least likely killer.

Paige demanding his weapons brought up a new little dilemma, seeing as it wasn't customary to strip newcomers of their weaponry, and she also lacked the authority to make such a demand. Still, they reckoned she knew something the rest of them didn't, and if she thought it was best that he be unarmed, well that was something they'd have to consider. For the time being they said nothing, not endorsing her demand but not belaying it either.

//Cat's trying to figure out if there's any reason not to let Vasco in erehgbvf I'm sorry they're a little protective of Paige

☽*˚⊹. | VASCO FENICE
Yellow tape around his body,
it's a fucking homicide
His face is on a T-Shirt
and his family traumatized
I didn't even mean to shoot 'em,
he just caught me by surprise
I reloaded my pistol, cocked it back, and shot him twice

Alright, this was almost getting ridiclous, and frankly it felt like he was just repeating old shit.  But, then he heard Paige speak rather hostile too him.  "Wipe that smirk off your face, mr. fenice, or i'll do it for you."  Turning his attention to her he kept the smirk on but didn't say anything, he wanted to see her try and wipe it off.  But, he wasn't wasting his time with arguing with her, because it's never been useful when she was unhappy like currently.  "Watch your choice of words, vasco. I definitely wouldn't use 'ragtag' as a descriptor for this group. Nor would I use stupid, so watch yourself."

"Paige, I think your going deaf lovely, because I never used stupid as a descriptor, but maybe I should start using it for you.  You seem to lack your touch,"  He spoke with a shrug as he looked at her, "It's a shame really."  He shook he said slightly at her with a bit of a tsktsk.  Turning his attention back to Cat as he was more interested in this figure now, Paige was something he knew, almost knowing herself better than his own self. And, from Paige putting a specific word in his mouth, it made him seem like a bad dude.  He knew what she was going for, she was using the group as a reason why Vasco and he couldn't bring Bonnie and Clyde back.   And she did have the upper hand with a group she's been with for a long while was on her side.  "Ragtag? Stupid?"

Great, thanks Paige.  "Ragtag; a group of people perceived as disreputable or undesirable.  From what I've heard, your group is made up of loners, exiled members of other groups, and just typical people also.  But, it's only what I've heard though."  He explained thoroughly so there was no miscommunication it wasn't meant to be a bad thing, but more of a quick way to describe the group.  Vasco though wasn't going to explain the stupid part because, well he never said that, and he already brought that Paige put that word in his mouth. 

"I recommend you give me your weapon then, Vasco. I know Mike or Gabe could kill you, hell even Cat could, but we don't want the trouble that comes with it."  Yup, she was plain stupid.  What happened to his smart Paige?  She was replaced by a princess version of her, but it'd only be a short while before we'd start seeing the Bonnie in her. 

"Well darling I don't see much of use to giving you my weapon, after all, you obviously have some sort of bias thing against me that is two years old now.  But, also,"  Taking the magazine out, dumping the two bullets he had onto the ground.  "I only had two bullets, but I'd rather hold onto it.  It was a family heirloom and it's rather important to me.  So I'll be declining giving the actual weapon too you, but you can pick those up if you want."  He spoke adressing the bullets on the ground, if she was going to act like an ass, well he'd do it better and classier.

Cat remained silent for the time being, still watching, still processing. They couldn't help but be a tad annoyed that "ragtag" was a rather good descriptor of the Badlands. They crossed their arms over their chest, watching him drop two bullets onto the ground. Alright, just watching the two of them would get them no closer to knowing whether or not he'd be a problem. "Paige, is he gonna be an issue?" They asked, keeping their voice low in hopes that she would be the only one to hear.

//Cat doesn't know what to do with Vasco I'm sorry efgh

You'll believe God is a woman

Anastasia "Paige" Montgomery - a poly bi sixteen-year-old girl who is part of the badlands. She tends to not show emotion, either having her signature family scowl or just rbf. Personality wise she's sarcastic, snarky, and sassy; she tends to be more of an asshole or giving smart remarks. She's currently single and only acts nice to those she crushes on due to being unable to be mean to them.

Vasco made his last mistake: he ran his smart mouth. Talking to Paige in such a way that made something snap in her. How fucking dare he speak to her like that? Him, of all people! She waited until Vasco was busy taking bullets out of his gun to act. Waited until he spoke so stupidly to her again. Oh, JD darling, you've lost your touch.

There was a gun pointed at him, the click it made as she really did consider firing it. She looked more disappointed or disgusted than how she seemed before. "You're a fucking idiot. Now you better get on your damn knees and pick those up or I'll add you to our body count, darling." her voice the same back when they would go around terrorizing groups, just them against the world. There was that glint in her eye that meant he really fucked up, at least enough to make that little facade vanish. He knew damn well he didn't talk to her like that without some...great consequences.

Her eyes didn't leave him when Cat spoke to her, a smirk crept on her face at the question. She knew better than anyone that Vasco was trouble. He liked overthrowing people and being in a position of power. He was gorgeous and her life had been boring without him, she knew that too. But that didn't answer the question. No.

"Yes. But he's ruthless and kills well. So he can stay if you'd want him. Otherwise I may get rid of him right here." she explained, staring Vasco dead in the eye. She knew Vasco didn't think she'd shoot him, but she was sure she all but made her point. She would and if not one of the other three may get him "Hell, make him a worm if you want and lock him up. I don't care what you do to him. He's a fucking idiot."

Catalyst had arrived next, moments after Gabriel had offered his own little "input", so he had decided to keep quiet. The Boss could handle things from here, and he was sure of that. There didn't need to be anymore words coming from him, considering that the situation was already heating up and didn't need anymore arguments to ensue.

Words began to fly between the trio, and all Gabe could do was simply watch. Hopefully Catalyst would put their foot down soon, though, because it was all becoming very tedious and annoying. This newcomer, "Vasco", was proving to be quite the smart alec. That was, in his opinion, not very wise. There was no doubt that he was prideful and confident enough to think that he could charm his way into the group, but if he kept on opening his mouth, then there was no doubt that someone would shut it for him in a matter of seconds. "I know Mike or Gabe could kill you, hell even Cat could, but we don't want the trouble that comes with it." He quirked a brow ever so slightly at the mention of his name, but said nothing. He could kill Vasco—any human could if they wanted to—but would he? No. Not that any of them needed to know that, of course. It was best to try and keep the new guy at bay, just in case he tried to get a little too cocky.

Blue eyes locked onto Vasco's firearm, and he watched as two single bullets dropped to the ground as a sign of submission. At least he was complying with their demands, and it seemed that he was no longer a threat as far as gunfire was concerned. Gabriel glanced to Catalyst to see if they would say anything next, but within moments, his attention had snapped right back to Paige. She threatened him, pointing her own weapon at him and resting her finger on the trigger as an intimidation tactic. It would be one thing if Vasco was armed and dangerous and posed a clear threat to the patrol, but he had already surrendered his bullets. What was Paige thinking?

Gabriel was not going to wait for Catalust to diffuse the situation. Things could get ugly very quickly, so he figured that he'd try and help instead of just standing around. "Paige." The teenager snarled, stepping out of his place by Michael to boldly stand in between Paige and Vasco. Was his life at risk? He doubted it, but he didn't know how far Paige would go to actually shoot this person. "That's enough. You're not getting rid of anybody, so put the gun away now." He ordered firmly, narrowed gaze settled onto the fellow teenager. Was he the Boss? No, but he was an Officer, and that was close enough for now. Gosh, he never yelled at anybody, not ever. This sudden outburst felt so foreign to him; uncomfortable, even. He felt the anxiety rushing through his veins and bubbling up in his chest, and although he tried to maintain a straight face, you could tell how hard he was trying if you looked deep enough. He was phasing out his fear in order to be brave. Block out all outer emotion, be strong, be tough. This mantra coursed through his brain and whispered in his ears as he faced the barrel of the gun.

Thud, thud, thud, went his heartbeat.

This situation could very well do without her being here. He didn't care if these two had some sort of weird history together, but it was definitely for the best if she removed herself from the scene.

//tw for threats of violence and gore

Finally, enough was revealed that they could make a decision. Unfortunately, it also came with Paige taking out a gun and aiming it at Vasco. For fuck's sake. "Paige," their voice was calm but stern. A clear warning. "You can put the gun down or I can take it. Either way it's not gonna be aimed at that boy." Or Gabe, since he had stepped between her and Vasco. "He's done nothing but run his mouth so far and I seem to recall you doing the same thing. We've got plenty of killers here, what I'm concerned about is this weird little beef you've got going on."

They glanced over at Vasco. "I'll let you join, but if you do anything to hurt Paige or anyone else, I'll fugging gut you. Maybe a string of entrails will keep the next arsehole from crossing the border without permission." So much for playing along with her claim that they weren't the dangerous one to watch.

They glanced back at Paige; she had probably revealed more than she meant to, between the gun and referencing "our body count". Interesting. Very interesting.
