Scoops, peeking his head out from behind a tree, watches as Sarah and Waylon watch a man gathering weapons from a night. Feeling this situation is too risky for his mild manneredness, he simply sneaks off in the opposite direction and back toward the grassy meadow. Fighting off the allergens in the air, Callahan decides to head in the one direction no one else has gone...off toward the west! With nothing but a grassy hill in the distance, Callahan feels confident that he'll find something to help everyone with this situation.
John Gable watches from a distances (watching the watchers watch). He couldn't believe it, either it is the best renaissance fair he had ever seen or his greatest wish has come true. He has finally been sent back in time. Now he could finally test his acting skills. He grabbed his duffle bag and pulled out an old costume he stole from a small stint on an off-Broadway musical where he played an evil wizard.
(OOC: Waylon had to run so per him to keep things flowing)
Waylon hands her the knife and she quickly moves away from the two men as the knights approach. Without haste she pulls the laces from one of her boots and uses it to tie the knife to the end of a long branch.
Meanwhile, the knights are aggressively upon Waylon and John. They notice the sword and cross-bow in John's possession and red flags go up for them.
"You are hereby under arrest at the behest of the King! Come peacefully or there shall be bloodshed!"[/i]
Sarah hears what is going on, and she acts quickly. She moves quietly around to flank the knights and remaining as quiet as possible, she extends the branch with the knife tied to the end and uses the point of the blade to harshly poke the horse in its rear. This causes the animal to buck upward, tossing the knight from his perch. The other knight as well is knocked over as the horse nearly tramples him to run off.
As Waylon and John are there to deal with the knights immediately, Sarah grabs hold of the long bow, which had fall to the ground after the horse bucked. Having an archery range at her home in L.A., she was a pretty damn good shot. She knotches an arrow and draws the bow string back, aiming it at the knights.
Sarah: Back off![/i]
She smirks a bit at Waylon and John, who now had free reign to grab hold of the fallen swords.
Eric Price is shown waking later than most the others. He notices some are being confronted by knights and before he can be noticed, he quickly beats a hasty retreat.
Eric Price: What the ... knights, where am I?
As he walks, he notices what appears to be a nobleman in full regalia walking by.
Eric Price: Whatever this is, I better blend in and get a hold of the situation.
He quickly views the noblemen who is distracted and slowly sneaks up behind him, he places a chokehold on him and applies it as firmly as he can until he is passed out. He then takes his clothes and puts them on for himself.
Eric Price: Alright, with that out of the way, hey, that cliff could be suitable.
Eric notices a cliff near him that's pretty deep and lands in water. He drags the unconscious body and holds it over the cliff. He looks down at it and thinks.
Eric Price: It's either me or you. See you in hell you bastard.
Eric kicks the unconscious nobleman down the cliff as he quickly walks away to try and get hold of just where he is.
Eric Price: All right, time to blend in and figure out where I am. I better speak to some of the locals.
The knights reluctantly remove all of their gear and hand it over to Waylon and John. One of them cannot help but shout a warning to Sarah. Because well, obviously he wasn't very happy that she just got the better of them.
"You'll burn for this, witch!"[/i]
Sarah doesn't relent as she keeps the arrow focused at him, making sure they made no sudden movements. But, this did only enhance the ideas she had. Sarah also heard someone approaching from the bushes, but she wasn't about to take her focus off of the knights until they were tied up and no longer a threat.
A short while later Scoops is slowly making his way up a large hill and now realizing the error of leaving everyone else behind.
Scoops Callahan: Seriously, who the hell thought it would be a good idea to put this hill here? As soon as we get back to 2012 I'm writing an article about how the Medieval Times was built by douchebags.
Finally he reaches the top of the hill and is overjoyed when he sees smoke rising from the center of what appears to be a small village. From where he stands he can see most of the buildings are made of straw, dirt and mud. There also seems to be a few people walking around the area. Seeing how they are dressed he looks down at his own clothes.
Scoops Calllahan: Hmm, I'm going to stick out like a sore thumb. I'm going to have to Medieval up a tad.
Scoops rips off his t-shirt, jeans, socks and shoes, leaving only his tighty whiteys. He then drops to ground and begins rolling in the dirt and mud, letting himself get as dirty as possible.
Scoops Callahan: There, that should do nicely. Let's just hope these guys speak English.
Scoops makes his way down the hill and toward the small village, completely unaware that it's full of murdering pillagers.
Sarah releases the tension on the bow string and removes the arrow, returning it to the quiver. She slings the bow and quiver over her should now that the guards are no longer a threat. She looks around, seeing the other John, dressed in some ridiculous get-up.
Sarah: I suppose that will work. [/i]
She shakes her head slightly, laughing a bit. But it doesn't last, she becomes serious once more.
Sarah: We need to head to the castle. There should be a village inside. Market even? How much money did they have? We'll need to buy supplies. [/i]
She looks at each of the men, who were all dressed to blend in....she was not. But, as I said, she had a plan for that anyway.
Sarah: Let's head to town....just remember one thing. Drop to the ground like a sack of potatoes when I signal you. Trust me, you'll know when the time is right. [/i]
That made no sense right now, but it would, eventually. Sarah was certain of it. In fact, she was counting on it.
John Gable: Hey, Seth. I won't pretend to know what is going on but if you ever see this. I would just like to ask if you could at least grant access to the RP boards. I really like reading old RPs. They mean a lot to me. I put a lot of work into them.

John Gable: And there is a friend I have been wanting to show them to because they want to read them as well. So, it would mean a lot to me that, if you see this, you could open of the RP boards again just so I could see it. If it isn't any trouble.

John Gable: Please and thank you.
