Tom nodded and then gestured for her to lead the way. "Well since you know the circus so well, then can you show me where I'll be going?"

"Almost all of the tents are down, so I'll just take you to your car." She answered, slowly leading the way back towards the train. She was doing her best not to limp, but her ankle was swollen and aching from her fall. "You'll be sleeping with the older workers, unless you'd prefer to bunk with the drunk men."

Tom noticed her limping as they reached his car and thanked her. "You shouldn't let him push you around like that."

"I'm fine." she murmured, "Thanks for the advice." she waved at him and then headed for her own car again, figuring on resting until her leg was feeling better.

Tom watched her go and then headed into his cart where the men were. This would be a long ride, but he was looking forward to getting paid and maybe one day getting himself a place to live.

"Hey there!" An old man with whispy white hair was sitting in the far corner of the cart atop of a mattress built out of straw. "You a newbie on this here circus?"

Tom turned towards the voice and spotted the old man, wondering what he did. "Yeah, the new cook. I hope everyone likes pork and beans, cause we'll be eating a lot of it."

"Oh ho! You're a hoot." The man cackled, smiling as he waved. "I'm Pete, I'm in charge of selling tickets."

"Wow...what a job." Tom went over to him and found a place to sit down. "You can call me Tom, just not Thomas. How long will we be on this train?"

"Probably a day or two. If you have to see anyone, just climb over the top of the train and get into the car from the side." Pete smiled and showed off the gaps between his teeth.

"Isn't that kind of dangerous?" Tom saw the gaps in his teeth and mentally reminded himself to find a toothbrush at a store before his teeth ended up like that.

"Yeah, but if you know how to do it, then you'll be fine." He said, "I used to be able to do it before my legs started aching."

"What else did you do before that?" Tom asked curiously, wondering how long this guy had been here exactly.

"When I was younger, I used to help with the animals." he said, "But now I'm at the last stop, selling tickets."

Tom frowned slightly at that, wondering if this guy was going to die. "People who work here aren't under a contract or something, are they?" His tone was suspicious.

"Heck no!" Pete said, jumping slightly when the train started to move. "I just stay around to look at the ladies."

Tom smirked, amused. "Nice," He chuckled a little. "Sounds like it'll be pretty interesting around here." He bumped against the wall when the train jerked and steadied himself, eyebrows drawing together.

"Mhm. You can sleep on that mattress over there. Mincini said that he might be brining in some bunks in a few weeks for me and my roomies." He smiled again and leaned back a bit. "What brings you to this circus?"

"Nothing much, really. I just kind of happened to land here last night and I guess someone convinced me to stay." He shrugged a little, thinking of the girl last night with the bruises on her wrists.

"That pretty girl that fell last night?" Pete teased, smiling widely. "Alana's one of the nicests girls that we have on this train. The other woman are just whores, albeit they're still kind, but a majority of them are dancers."

"So who's the guy that she's with?" Tom leaned back against the wall. "He seems like a real jerk." He didn't care if the guy heard. He'd just toss him out the train if he had to.

"Zeke?" Pete pursed his lips and then nodded, "Yeah yeah, he's a beefy guy. Definitvely don't want to mess around with him. He's in charge of getting rid of the people who jump our train but don't actually work for Mincini. He loves his job."

"Well you know what they say, the bigger they are, the harder they fall." Tom smirked a little in thought of chunking that guy out of the train. Or maybe not. Maybe if he was right, he really would get what was coming for him.

"I hope you don't plan on trying to take that guy down. His wife would kill you." Pete said, wondering if Tom actually had the potential to do some damage to the man.

"So what? Alana's his wife or something?" Tom lifted a dark eyebrow in question as he looked at him.

"I'm not sure, actually." Pete admitted, "But when Zeke gets in a real bad mood, she's usually got this diamond ring on her finger, mainly just because he gets upset when she doesn't have it on."
