Aidan Drake Aidan steps through the door into the Saloon and pauses for a moment as he lets his eyes adjust to the change of light. He dusts off his arms and legs before he adjusts his hat and makes his way towards the bar in long purposeful strides stopping when he arrives to lean up against the bar and look at the selection of whiskeys.
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine rests in her place of honor.. a rotating stool at the bar, down near the end. When she's not on it, a nicely scribbled "Out of Order" sign is put atop it. Now, though, Lilly is nursing a Nuka Cola and practicing her belches.
Aidan Drake Aidan offers a nod and a hat tip towards Lilly, "Hey there miss." Then he looks back at the selections and points towards one of the local distilled drinks, "Could I get a couple of fingers from that bottle there bud?"
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine nods as the waiterbot, having decided the floor was a good place to rest, rises and proceeds to fetch the bottle.

"Lets shee the color offen yer capsh", the bot slurs. "Onna counter. Or ya getsh no whishkey"

Lilly facepalms, though her shoulders quake. "..I love his voice chip", she chortles softly
Aidan Drake Aidan blinks as the waiterbot talks to him and shakes his head looking over at the young lady, "Is that a drunk robot chip? That's likely one of the most amazing things I've heard in a while." He reaches into his pocket and pulls out a handful of caps placing them on the bar, "That enough for a few drinks?"
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine smiles and nods. "Was from some of the old wino bots that never got much use", she giggles. "Maybe if the bot was drunk and happy about it, Others might sorta wanna be drunk too.", tapping her head conspiratorially. "I been thinkin..", she says with a grin. She laughys, hand going to her stomach. "lots more time to think lately."
Aidan Drake Aidan chuckles and nods, "You may have a good idea there miss. Course he seems to be drunk and surly not so much happy. Course that could help keep the riff raff in line as well." He glances over at her as she holds her stomach slightly, "Well time to think isn't a bad thing. Mighta done me some good back in the day."
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine taps her chestpiece. "I got a belly shot. Mom gave me this aftewards to keep me safer", she beams proudly. "Was her old set", a hand rubbing over the armor lovingly. "and thinkin just gets me into trouble. I start getting too many ideas, then never have enought time to do them. So where you from? And, planning on staying? or you just scootin' through?"
Aidan Drake Aidan smiles a bit as he waits for the drunk bot to get his drink down, "I'm from El Dorado. Well outside of town the old Drake Ranch." He looks her over, "Course you've prolly never seen it got hit by bandits about 15 years or so ago? Sounds about right. I left shortly after that and am just now makin my way back. I'd heard the Sheriff's needing some extra hands figured I'd throw my lot in with the law and stay a while."
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine winces a bit. "Sorry your ranch got it. Bandits suck that way. well, they suck in other ways too, but that definitely one of 'em.", nodding for emphasis. "And Aunt Clara and Aunt Roxie definitely could use the help. Just.. you gotta listen to Roxie's advice with a special kinna ear." smiling. "You'd do good there. Help protect folks from what happened to yer place."
Aidan Drake Aidan nods a bit as his whiskey arrives and the caps vanish, "That's my goal. So your Aunt's are the law around here? And what kinda ideas do you turn into projects? I take it most of the bots runnin in here are your work?"
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine says, "Well, Clara just got appointed temp'rary Sheriff. Roxie is just going to help, and maybe cuz I think she gets a kick out of shooting people sometimes.. specially if they got good cooking supplies. Mom runs the saloon.. so.. ", eyebrows lifting, "holy shit. Caines have sorta migrated right own up to the tops of some stuff. Huh. Some of the other families aint gonna be really happy with that once they get a taste of it and sleep on it for a night or two".. She shrugs. "Oh well.""
Aidan Drake Aidan chuckles and shrugs a bit as he sips on his drink, "Nothin wrong with your family endin up on top now and then. Sure beats them bein the brunt of all the jokes. Right?" He decides to take a seat instead of leaning against the bar, "So your mom runs the saloon, your Aunt's the actin Sheriff and your other Aunt's her deputy? Guess those are the ones I'll need to talk to see about gettin a shiny badge."
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine nods and smiles, taking a moment to spin full circle on her stool. It spins well, too. all greased up and 'rebuilt'. "sure", swoosh "'nuff" swoosh "They're the ones" swoosh "that you need to talk to" less-swoosh "I'm I'm sure there's some other folks wanting to help, so you wont have do to it alone", stopping herself. "You got a horse?"
Aidan Drake Aidan nods as he takes another sip from his whiskey, "Yeah I've got a horse. Should still have the deed to the ranch someplace or other as well. Hopefully nothing's there that'll need to get run off... Why do you ask about a horse?"
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine says, "Well, Sheriff covers the local area too, so might be some traveling.. or, lots of boots. ", she smiles. "and for runnin down bad guys and rascally varmits and whatnots", adding a bit of drama to her voice."
Aidan Drake Aidan chuckles and nods, "I see. Well that makes sense. Yeah got a horse and should be able to chase down them rascally varmits, whatnots and naer good doers..."
Skittles Skittles arrives in the saloon, doors swinging closed behind her. Meandering over to Lilly, the spinning girl not very hard to spot, she smiles at her and says, "Heyas Lilly,". "What's this about boots?", she asks as she takes a seat close by and available. With a glance to the door she frowns, "Huh, Molly was suppose to be right behind me.".
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine waves to Skittles, "Hey! Boots? What boots?", looking at her own boots. "What do you know about boots? You heart something about boots? There's boots needed for Grandpa's house thing, maybe-perhaps"
Aidan Drake Aidan glances over as Skittles arrives tipping his hat towards her he offers her a nod, "Hey there miss. Was just talking about how the Sheriff's office has to work outside of the city some and it'd wear out a lot of boots chasin after the riffraff without a horse."
Skittles Skittles looks a little confused at the string of words that comes forth from Lilly. She blinks and glances around, "Er, nevermind Lilly.". She pauses as Aidan explains. She frowns then and continues, "Actually speaking of the law,", glancing back to Lilly, "I heard some kind of stabbing took place around here and outside the walls, any idea who done did it?". The atmosphere was causing her to adopt some unusual speech patterns it would seem.
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine 's eyes widen. "A stabbing? Really? geeze. Who got stabbed? Was it a horse?"
Aidan Drake Aidan glances over at Skittles then at Lilly and blinks a bit, "Wait stabbing right outside of here? Wonder what that's all about. Gonna have to look into that soon as I get in to talk to the Sheriff."
Skittles Skittles tugs on a lip as she reflects for a moment, "I'm actually not too sure. If you haven't heard anything about it though, maybe people are just starting up shit.". She shrugs a shoulder and glances back to the doors. "I guess she went somewhere else then. Oh well.". She's got a light bandage over her arm, going up to her shoulder, evidence of recent medical attention.
Lilly Caine Lilly Caine slides off the stool. "I'll let you know if I hear something", looking to Skittles and to Aidan. "for now, I need to go lay down a bit. Catch you guys later", as she begins heading for the door
Aidan Drake Aidan glances at the door and shrugs before he nods towards the bandages, "Get into a scuffle?" Yup he's a master of the obvious. As Lilly stands to head out the door Aidan stands up and offers her a tip of his hat, "Pleasure talkin to you miss." After she leaves he sits back down on the stool and finishes off his glass of whiskey before he taps it and motions for the bar tending bot to refill it.
Skittles Skittles glances to the empty stool after Lilly heads out the door, then back to Aidan. She takes a seat next to him and orders some sweet tea and says, "Well, I mean... technically the answer is yes, but that isn't what caused this.", she gestured to her arm with her other hand, which she then uses to plop down some caps for the beverage. "Some horseshit tumbleweed merchant sold me some bad tech, and then it sploded.".
Aidan Drake Aidan blinks as he looks at the bandages and shakes his head, "Some serious tech to explode like that. It's why I tend to stick with traditional firearms much more reliable for me."
Skittles Skittles shakes her head once more as she sips from the glass, "Wasn't an energy weapon, just a capacitor. Um, it's like a battery sorta, one that can be recharged very very quickly, and lets out the energy very quickly. It doesn't hold a charge as long though."
     "Think of it like a balloon that has a bunch of tiny little holes in it, and then connect a pressured hose to it, filling it up with water.", she sips again, "The balloon would fill up, but that water would slowly leak out of the holes, and as soon as the pressure stopped, the balloon would push the water back through the hose, or what was left at any rate.". She lifts her injured arm and arches an eyebrow, "Sometimes, if the balloon is made of a shitty material, or defective in another way, it rips and then all that water, or energy comes rushing out. So yeah. Simply put, they're little miniature grenades in that state.".
Aidan Drake Aidan nods a bit as he listens to her talk about it and then nods a bit more at the end, "Oh that makes sense little battery grenades. Yeah I'd be pissed if something like that blew up on me too." He takes a sip from his glass of whiskey when it's been refilled, "So did you go find the merchant and get your caps back?"
Skittles Skittles shakes her head in exasperation, her hands go up as well as she says, "No, buggered out I guess.". Annoyed, "I can't find him, hope he's ghoul food though.", and then mutters, "Asshole.", as she calls for a couple shots of something alcoholic to put in her tea.
Aidan Drake Aidan nods a bit, "I hate a dishonest trader hopefully he doesn't show his face around here again." He takes another drink from his glass and just about finishes it off so he just tips the glass back to finish it off and sets it down on the bar tapping it again for the tender bot, "So how long have you been here in town? I'm just coming home after an extended departure from El Dorado."
Skittles Skittles turns back to Aidan after watching her drink be poured, she waves the bot away when it tries to stir it and takes a gulp. "I've been here all my life. Grandparents were part of the original tribe, but they've been dead for a while now.", she gestuures around, "Not surprised we haven't met though, this isn't really my usual place to be. Just began stopping by recently, before that I didn't have much contact with anybody.".
Aidan Drake Aidan nods a bit and shrugs, "I've been gone for about fifteen years or so. My family used to run the Drake Ranch outside of town. I see there's been a ton of changes to the town since I'd left though."
Skittles Skittles listens before chugging her whole drink in one go. She stands up from the bar and nods, "Hmm, 15 years? Yeah, you've missed a bit I think. Though maybe you've heard more than most, being out in the wastelands.", she shrugs a shoulder before saying, "Well, was nice meeting you Aidan, but I gotta go track down some more parts. Stay out of trouble yeah?", she gives him a wink before turning to head out the door.
Aidan Drake Aidan grins and shrugs, "I'll try to stay outta trouble but I can't make any promises." He stands and tips his hat to her as she heads out, "Be safe though miss."
