HANDS OFF MY SNACKS / O, raccoons?
« on: February 18, 2021, 08:12:32 PM »
— It was nearing noon when Colt finally awoke that day; since moving out of the infirmary and into his own room in the lodge, he'd been struggling more and more to wake up at a reasonable time. He yawned, rubbing sleep from his eyes, and slid out of bed. It was pitch black in his room; he drew back his heavy curtains, letting in the bright white light of the snow-covered world outside. He opted to open the window - just a crack - as he'd left the fire burning in his mini-fireplace overnight and it was quite toasty in his bedroom. Enjoying the frigid breeze, the mercenary pulled on a pair of jeans, his boots, and a wool-lined shirt, tucking his coat under his arm. He snagged an apple from the bowl of fruit on his bedside table and left his room, ready to start the day.

For the next few hours, Colt patrolled Flintlock's territory, checking if any of the traps he'd set had caught anything worthwhile. They all came up empty, unfortunately; after making sure to reset them all, he would head back to his room in the lodge to change into dry clothes. Whistling, he opened his bedroom door - and froze. "W-What the-?!" Colt's window had been thrown wide open; the culprits seemed to be... an entire pack of raccoons. Five of them, at least - all sitting in Colt's room. They'd trekked snow all over the place, knocked over some furniture, and gotten into his trash and snack stash. He gaped at them, wide-eyed, entirely unsure of how to process this. The raccoons stared back, frozen in place. He scowled, giving his head a little shake. "Oi, get out of here! This is my room, you little freaks! Get out, or else!" 'Why the hell am I talking to them like they'll understand me?'

He waved his arms at them, hoping to scare them off, but they didn't budge. Colt had no idea what to do - he simply stared at them, blinking incredulously. Well, this... was the weirdest thing to happen to him in a while.

With the stress of an imminent fight, it made it difficult to take notice of the more amusing parts of life. And so, after spending a couple of hours in his office, a refilled glass with whiskey at his desk, Eddie realised he ought to take a break and get himself lunch. Stepping out and wandering down the hallway, he frowned as he neared Colt’s bedroom, curious with the commotion inside. Peeking his head into the doorway, he would soon realise what the problem was. ❝ Uh- ❞ Eddie was speechless, staring at the racoons with astonishment before looking over at Colt. ❝ You didn’t leave your window open, did you? ❞ 

He’d lived up in these mountains for years, but never had he seen something quite this bizarre. Eddie was a man who always seemed to know what to do, but with this incident? He was utterly stumped. ❝ Have you tried shooing them away? ❞ Eddie questioned, frowning over at the gaze of racoons before taking a step back and looking over towards Colt with parted lips and a perplexed expression. ❝ We can’t let them escape out of your room and into the lodge. ❞ Now that would be a disaster, a group of racoons rampaging the lodge, and not something he wanted to deal with today.

it wasn’t every day that freddie saw a raccoon around these parts. sometimes they would make themselves known in the nearby forestry, hanging around in the late hours. guess it never occurred to freddie that they’d gotten so used to seeing the people of flintlock lodge that they wouldn’t be too afraid to get close to them -- let alone crawl into the lodge during the early mornings.

sprawled out across the couch, lounging comfortably, fred’s brows raised at the sound of colt yelling at something. oh, he couldn’t resist the urge to see what had colt in such a frenzy. getting up from the couch, he stretched his arms lazily above his head as he wandered towards colt’s room, seeing eddie already on the scene. peaking curiously into the room, he raised his brows at the sight of the raccoons. christ.” he didn’t even know how he was supposed to react to seeing raccoons within the lodge.

still, he couldn’t help but find the situation a bit laughable. lips pulling into a grin at colt’s wide-eyed, surprised gaze, he laughed a few short notes of laughter. “they’re called 'trash pandas' for a reason… they must like whatever garbage lives in this room. ‘ey, colt?” was he calling colt garbage? maybe. it was possible they were simply enjoying the warmth and refuge the room provided; still, fred wouldn’t be inclined to agree. he much preferred his own story.
