"I see...well while that is impressive I'm afraid that if you two did want a job with us you wouldn't be able to. I do hope that's not what you were expecting, Winslow has a habit of making deals or offers he can't afford." She said with a slightly ashamed look as she looked at her associate. 

The skunk grinned nervously, as she said that. There was truth to that statement, in fact, that was how he had managed to make so many enemies because he had no way of paying them back or upholding his part of the deal. He had wished she wouldn't have said that, considering he promised the two kids twenty dollars which he wasn't going to give him anyway; Winslow was actually relying on his luck with that one, hoping that the two of them would forget that he ever offered it, and now he had to rescue himself from the situation. 

"Aha, not only beautiful but quite the joker as well. It's no wonder the Cervinos chose to help you especially after they dealt with your husband," he laughed a little nervously. 

"It helps when you have sex appeal on your side, hun," Beverly replied with a lighthearted smile as she picked up on the fact that he was potentially in trouble again. How typical of him.

Topshooter breathed a sigh of relief. At least the cat wasn't going to be giving the two of them a job here. He really didn't want to be in this place any longer than needed. Besides, it wasn't like they could anyway. Not with the mafia hot on their tails. Staying in one place too long was sure to mean death. And he didn't feel like dying anytime soon.

As they learned to the cat and skunk talk to one another, the two cups shared a looked with each other. They had no idea what they were going on about and felt lost to no end. But neither of them voiced it aloud. It didn't seem as though the she-cat had caught into what Winslow was trying to get out of with them sticking around.

"Well anyway, I bet these boys oughtta get goin', wouldn't want their parents to miss them. Our job here is done, now the two of ya can be on your way and I'll even have Bev appoint Torchy as your own personal bodyguard. Sound cool?" He said quickly not really giving anyone a chance to interrupt what he was saying in order to put their two cents worth in. 

Beverly frowned at the idea of her enforcer being their bodyguard, they weren't apart of their gang so there wasn't any guarantee that the fox would kill these children if given the chance. If anything she should send Winslow with him if she chose to make Gustav protect them on their way to wherever. 

"You know if I did that, you'd have to go too," she reminded him. 

"Yeah, well, maybe ya could take my place? I wouldn't want to risk him wringing my neck when we're alone again."

The two brothers shared a look with each other. A bodyguard? Why would Winslow offer to give them a personal bodyguard? It didn't make a bit of sense to the children. What was so dangerous that they needed one in the first place? It wasn't like they weren't grateful for the offer; they were, they just didn't get the reasoning behind it. However, a bodyguard could have come in handy. They would have someone to help them fight off the mafia that would be coming after them.

"A bodyguard?" Bottlecap echoed, once he saw an opening in their chat.

"Yeah supposedly one of the other mafia crime families is all angry about something, so they're looking for someone and it's all dangerous and whatnot out there. Don't think kids like you should be out and about alone like this, considering." He said with a shrug, at least he had heard that through the grapevine and he wasn't exactly sure if that was true or not. 

"Winslow, honey, don't go gossiping about things like that...and besides you, Gustav, and I have a deal to go make later so he wouldn't have to the time to escort them somewhere, and I wouldn't be able to accompany them. It's sweet you're showing concern for others though..." 

Beverly had moved towards the door as she said that, looking at the children expectantly; it was clear that she was now waiting for them to decide to go, she would have loved to help them out considering what her associate said was true, but she couldn't possibly waste Gustav's time like that. And chances were if they showed up, he'd get in a tangle with the wrong kind of people and she couldn't afford to have him hurt in any way.

Bottlecap and Topshooter stiffened at the skunk's words. Other mafia families? They were a part of the mafia too? All be it, a different one, but a part of one all the same. The green cup winced, wrapping his arms around himself to stop from shaking from the sheer terror he felt. They knew. These guys knew to a point that the mafia they ran into before was looking for someone. The elder sibling feared what would happen if these guys found out it was them they were after.

He tried to keep his cool, however. He didn't want to look suspicious. He pushed his little brother towards the door, thanking them for allowing them to help out all the while.

"Maybe we'll see ya, boys, again! I'm always out and about so be sure to say 'hi', it gets rather lonely when ya have only fancy-pants to talk to during a gin run," Winslow called after the two as they made their way out the door. Chances were he wouldn't run into them again but it was always good to have a bit of hope especially when he could think of a million things he could get the two of them to help out with. 

"Winslow, perhaps they'd leave faster if you shut your mouth, and I think I have a quick fix for that..." Gustav growled as he shot the skunk a murderous glare, he was delaying the two children on their departure and that wasn't exactly the best thing for them. The beans had already been spilled about them being part of the Cervino Family and no one seemed to see the problem in that but him. 

"Don't murder the only person in this place who can make a deal without doing something drastic, at least until I can find him an apprentice of sorts..." their boss purred wickedly as she looked over at Winslow, "of course I'm only joking. You two kids have a safe trip, it was a pleasure having you in our presence."

The two cups waved in farewell towards the three mafia members. Once they were safe and sound away from them, Topshooter breathed a much needed sigh of relief. "That was close..."

I don't think they were goin' ta hurt us, Top."

"It's better to be safe than sorry..." the green cup mumbled as he picked himself up off the ground. "I don't know about you Cap, but I'd rather not die today."

"We won't die, relax."

"C'mon, we'd better keep moving."

"May I remind you how dangerous it is to allow others who know our identities get away just like that?" Gustav finally growled at the two of them as the children walked out the door. Winslow seemed nonchalant about the whole thing, not surprising, Beverly looked about the same but she gave him a somewhat sad smile. It seemed as though she pitied him for some reason. 

"You're always so pessimistic, it breaks my heart to see you worry so much," she said, making her way toward her associate and placing a comforting paw on his shoulder. He seemed to relax somewhat but still kept his look of anger. 

He had worked for the Cervinos most of his life and while he didn't feel any sentiment toward them, there was a certain sense of loyalty to where he wanted to make sure the ones he was near were protected from outsiders. The silver fox looked down at the white she-cat, her green eyes seemingly burning a hole through him. 

"Especially considering the business we deal in, risks and danger are never anything new. You should be used to that by now...besides we have a better chance of getting killed during the deals Winslow makes than we do revealing ourselves to a pair of children who act like scared rabbits."

She moved away from him, back into the direction of the backroom. He had to admit she had a point, and he hated having to ever think that but unlike Winslow, she had a way of talking to him that seemed to draw his interest or just seemed to disarm him in general when he tried to show aggression towards her. 

"With that said, we've got to get ready for our next deal. So if you're done fretting over small things, I would enjoy it if you both came to help," she said with a glance over her shoulder before she disappeared once again into the hidden gin joint. 

Winslow followed her a little shortly, passing Gustav who seemed to be frozen in place at the moment. He shot the fox one of his signature grins, "I think she likes ya, I kind of smell a romance coming on, wouldn't ya agree?" The skunk giggled before he too disappeared into the backroom.

Bottlecap and Topshooter continued their trek through Inkpool. They didn't know where they were going to be going now, but they'd cross that bridge once they got to it. The green cup was still on edge, looking around nervously as he tapped his thumbs together. It was as if he was expecting someone to jump out of them, attempting to kill them or mug them. The purple cup rolled his eyes as his brother's childish behavior. He was much too jumpy and always thinking about the 'what ifs' or worse thing that could happen to them. The younger sibling wished he would light up a bit and have some fun. One step at a time he supposed. He shook his head to clear the thoughts from his mind. He'd worry about that later. Right now, he needed to focus on what they were going to do now. Sure they were going to take down the mafia but the problem was how? They couldn't do much without a battle plan.

He was pulled out of that train of thought as he spotted a figure in the distance. He came to a halt and his elder kin collided with his back, knocking him forward slightly. Topshooter quickly apologized as he moved back, wondering what had caused Bottlecap to stop. He too soon noticed the shape far off and he swallowed fearfully. Who or what was that?

Daisy walked slowly down the road, a rather bright smile on her face. She wasn't too sure where she was going, nor did she really seem to care; it was a lovely day and simply walking along without any plan on where to go was just fine with her. Continuing down the path she saw two figures ahead, no doubt it wasn't anyone dangerous but the idea of meeting new people excited her yet made her feel anxious. She enjoyed socializing but she was also a bit scared of what others might think of her. 

The young cup was tempted to offer a shy wave to the two figures in the distance that drew nearer, but she had scared herself into not doing that. It was stupid really, they appeared to be children like her and might be friendly but who knew at this point; instead she had lowered her gaze a little bit, staring at the ground in front of her rather than looking ahead, it was to at least think of something to say if they approached and didn't switch directions.

Bottlecap and Topshooter made their way towards the person. They were surprised to see another cup standing there. This one was female and kept her gaze on the ground. In a way, she reminded them of the elder cup that trailed behind the younger one. Timid, shy, but sweet all the while. It was the younger sibling who spoke up first, giving a smile and waving at the other child.

"Hiya. Are ya lost?"

She had stopped in her tracks by now, awkwardly she looked up slowly to meet the gaze of one of the other cups that had approached her. Daisy thought about the question that was asked, did she appear lost to them? She wasn't sure of that or how exactly one would answer such a silly question without sounding offensive. 

"Erm...no, I was just out for a walk." She finally replied with a smile.

The brothers shared a look with each other. Topshooter gave his younger sibling a look that was clear that he couldn't believe he had asked if the other cup was lost. She didn't appear like she was. It looked as though she was just taking a stroll as she had told them. The purple cup offered a grin and a shrug before turning his attention back to the female toon.

"Oh, well, alright then. I'm Bottlecap and this is my brother, Topshooter. Who might you be?"

"Well it's nice to meet the both of you, I'm Daisy..." her words trailed off a bit as she tried to think of something else to say, she wanted to say something else in an attempt to be friendly with the two of them. It wasn't an easy task for her to say the least. 

"So...what are you two up to?"

The green cup waved to the female cup as his brother introduced themselves to her. Daisy was a pretty name and seemed to fit her well. She even had a daisy in her cup. Bottlecap and Topshooter shared a look with each other at her question. What could they say to her? They didn't want to get her worked up over the mafia or even in trouble with them.

"W-We're just taking a-a walk t-too."

A look of confusion formed on her face, Topshooter looked as shy as she was but she really wasn't expecting him to stutter like that. Perhaps there was something about her that seemed a bit terrifying to the green cup, the thought of that made her a little anxious when she thought about it but she did her best to try and conceal that fact. 

"You don't seem very sure of yourself," she commented.

Topshooter shifted slightly on his feet. He hated the fact that he stuttered so much. It was something that he couldn't help though. For as long as he could remember, he had always had that annoying stutter whenever he talked. He never understood why Bottlecap didn't have that given the fact that they were related to each other, but perhaps it was due to the green cup being more shy rather than out-going like his brother.

"That's just how Top talks," Bottlecap cut in before the green cup could say anything else. "He always has a stutter when he speaks."

At this point, she couldn't help but feel a little bad at the comment that she had made. Then again it wasn't like she knew that he had a speech impediment, they had only met each other today so perhaps she shouldn't feel as guilty about making such a mistake. 

"I'm sorry I didn't realize..."

Topshooter gave her a small smile. She didn't need to say sorry for the mistake. She had no idea of knowing about his speech problem. It was a normal thing that he dealt with whenever he met someone new. He was in a way, used to it by now. Some people thought it was strange that he spoke with a stutter, but he tried not to let it bother him. He knew they just didn't understand. It was like those who tried to pick on Bottlecap for the way he spoke, but the purple cup gave them a reason to never bully him again. The green cup wished that he could be like that in a way. At least then his baby brother wouldn't need to step in and defend him all the time.

"It's o-okay. You d-didn't know."

Daisy felt better that Topshooter had accepted her apology and understand, though she felt herself beginning to panic slightly as she couldn't think of much else to say to the two of them. It was a bit of an inconvenience the two of them were friendly like she had hoped and she wanted to continue talking to them in hopes of making some new friends. Being socially awkward wasn't helping her cause very much, and she had no way of fixing the issue. 

"Ah, well I guess I better be going, I'm sure you two have important things to do." She said quickly out of habit, cursing herself in her head for simply ending an interaction yet again when she found nothing to say.

Bottlecap and Topshooter shared a look each other at the female cup’s words. She seemed to be in a bit of a hurry to leave them. Though it sounded like she didn't want to bother them either. While they did have things to do, she wasn’t wrong with guessing that they did, in a way she seemed almost sad to leave them to do their own thing before she had bumped into them. If they weren’t on such a dangerous quest, dealing with the mafia running them down like prey, then the purple cup would have offered her to tag along with them. However, given the stakes, neither of them wanted to risk an innocent little girl getting hurt by being dragged into something that she wasn’t even part of.

“Well, hey, yer welcome ta hang out with us whenever ya want ta, ‘kay? No need ta be a stranger or anythin’. We’re friends now. So don’t be shy.”

The green cup nodded in agreement. “Y-Yeah. You’re w-welcomed to hang o-out with us w-whenever you w-want to, D-Daisy.”

Her expression seemed to brighten when they had said that, but one thing came to mind; how was she going to find them again? She had no idea they even existed before this encounter, and it would seem rather odd for her to simply ask where they lived. No matter who was asking such a question, it was still weird and creepy to just pry into another stranger's life even if they were "friends". 

"Well then...what are you two up to after your walk?"

It was a relief to see that Daisy perked back up when the brothers gave her some encouragement. That only left one small problem. As far as the female cup knew, they were just taking a walk and granted, they were, but it was one filled with danger at every turn. Akuma’s men could appear at any moment and if that happened, well they’d have to fight their way out of it unless they wanted to die. While Topshooter didn’t personally like that idea, they didn’t have much of a choice. The mafia would continue to hunt them down until they were dead. They needed to take care of the problem before things got worse.

The also made the green up wonder how Pemble and Benny were doing. He and Bottlecap hadn’t seen them since they had gone their own ways awhile back. He hoped the two of them were okay. He couldn’t bear the thought of something happening to them. But there was no way to know for sure until they ran into them again. Whenever that was going to be.

Topshooter pushed those thoughts aside for the moment. He had to come up with an idea as to what he and his little brother were going to be doing after their ‘walk’. He hated the idea of lying to Daisy, she seemed like such a nice kid, but it was much too dangerous for her to pal around with them right now. He could only hope that they’d run into her again once this whole mafia thing was finished.

“W-Well, we’re not s-sure quite y-yet…” the green cup told her. “Bottlecap’s normally t-the one to c-come up with t-the ideas…”

The purple cup rose an eyebrow at his elder brother. Was he pinning this on him now? The younger preteen sighed before he shrugged. “I’m sure it’s goin’ ta be somethin’ ta get us inta trouble. Been thinkin’ about goin’ an’ stealin’ somethin’ from Gram’s.”

Topshooter was surprised by his sibling's answer. Was he really thinking about going there? “Didn’t h-he ban you f-from going t-there?”

Bottlecap grinned. “That’s the whole reason it’s fun.”

The sad part was, the green cup couldn't tell if his brother was joking or if he was really going to stop by Chef Gram's after this. He prayed that Bottlecap was just joking. But knowing him, the purple cup had full intentions to stop by the chef's place and stir up trouble for him and Sir Dish.

Daisy's face had formed a rather odd expression at the sound of that if she had just made friends with thieves she immediately felt like a bad person. Well, there was no way of getting out of this friendship now, at least for her, it was difficult to end things especially after they just started. 

"Aha, well, I guess I'll be going now! It was nice meeting the two of you, maybe we'll run into each other sometime, bye!" The young cup had said, it was in a quick manner once again and as she was speaking she had already begun the process of stepping to the side and continuing in her original direction. She wanted no part of this if stealing was to be involved and she'd be damned if she would allow herself to be sucked into such a crime.
