"No no my friend, I had not expected anyone to make a social call on me so it was just as well you said what you did" Tybalt assures mr. Ramon Obrador. Tybalt mentally notes to inform MacRegan before Tybalt goes to La Misión Santísimo Nombre de María. it is probaby unrelated but no reason to be reckless. "Just to be sure that is the Mission near Saguaro right?" Tybalt asks the couple after taking a bite of food.

Juan follows Eugene and tries not to look sullen...but not to invite a conversation, either.
All of this without being impolite.
Ah, the balancing acts that the lack of coffee leads a man to!

"¡Sí, Señor Crenshaw!" replies Ramón. “La Misión is just a little way south of Saguaro. Stay east of the river and look for the big boulder balanced among the cacti and you will not fail to find the trail.”

"Ah yes, how silly of me" Tybalt says after taking a sip of water. "So how goes things in town I hear there was a bit of a brou-ha-ha with a new outlaw gang, I hope you were both safe when it was going on" Tybalt steers the conversation towards the doings in town and such gossip with the Obradors.

"I have not been to town for a week, señor, but my friend Vicente, he comes to mi granja maybe to get a little free pork, maybe to get a little free milk, like that, you know, and he tells me very bad men came to town this morning and shoot up the bank and el ensayador judío. Marshal Clary, Vicente says he was shot as well."

" Oh dear, well all we can do is pray for him now" Tybalt takes a bite of food and a sip of water. "Did your friend Vincente mention if they had filled the position?" Tybalt inquired.

" Ah only grazed then, still able to do his job and such" Tybalt says between bites. " Shows a good work ethic to get back on the job so soon after being shot, very respectable" Tybalt says.

Corbin hangs around a bit while MacRegan talks, but excuses himself and heads out of the office. Taking a deep breath to gather his courage, he heads off to the Cactus Flower restaurant

As you ride down Main Street you see bullet holes marring the false fronts of the bank and the assayer's office. The bank seems to be doing business as usual despite its loss, but you see a bespectacled man sitting on the boardwalk out front of the assayer's office, holding his head in his hands. He wears a bloodstained bandage wrapped around his head at the hairline. Otherwise the town seems as it was last time you visited, only you can see through the window that the Cactus Flower is bustling and full of customers.

Eugene will try to find out where Crenshaw has got off to...

You easily obtain directions to the Obrador farm and, upon arrival, see Lars and Tybalt's horses tied up at the hitching rail outside a small adobe house. A Mexican woman appears from a back door to hang an olla from a nail on a protruding roofbeam, looks you over, and goes back inside without a word.
" Ah only grazed then, still able to do his job and such" Tybalt says between bites. " Shows a good work ethic to get back on the job so soon after being shot, very respectable" Tybalt says.
Señora Obrador excuses herself from Lars, but not without instructing him to stir for five more minutes and then crack three eggs into the pot.

She goes to the front room and tells her husband, "Señor Crenshaw has more visitors, I think. Two more men on horses. They look like bad men, un gringo y un negro. One has been shot."

"Do you know these men señor?" Ramón asks as he rises to peek through the curtains.

Corbin removes his hat from his head and holds it in front of his chest as he enters the Cactus Flower.

He looks about for Betsy, her sister and her father among the throng of customers.

[spoiler: GM]

Goes to the window to check out the two arrivals.

OC: I am assuming these are Eugene and Juan, finally making it into town. If so Tybalt quickly exits the house to greet his companions and offer assistance if needed. Then he will introduce them to the Obradors. IF they aren't Eugene and Juan, Tybalt will tell the couple to exit through the back of the house and then call out to the strangers from the window to introduce themselves.

Tybalt goes to the window and sees Eugene and Juan outside. Meanwhile, Eugene and Juan see first a Mexican man and then Tybalt peeking out at them. It all seems very suspicious, as though Tybalt is expecting trouble. Eugene and Juan don't see Lars anywhere, but his horse is there. Then Tybalt exits the adobe and greets his erstwhile companions.

Corbin spots Pa Sommer reading at a corner table near a window, and sees Betsy and her sister Becca waiting tables. Betsy catches Corbin's eye and goes red in the face. She looks furious.

"Boss!" Eugene exclaims, clasping Tybalt's hand formly in his own. "Why'd you leave like that? I was worried about you." He looks discreetly over Tybalt's shoulder and whispers, "Everything on the up-and-up here, boss?"

Corbin cringes internally and heads forward toward Betsy.

"Betsy! Glad to see you've found your way home. The men at the ranch told me they'd brought you back" he says with a nervous smile

She shouts loud enough for everyone in the restaurant to hear: "Pa! This here's the man who led me astray with promises of marriage and tried to corrupt me with alcohol!"

The restaurant patrons turn to look at you, some curious, some perplexed, some looking ready to string you up.

Pa Sommer closes his book and stands up, glaring at you. "Is that so?" he thunders.

Corbin speaks politely with a serious expression looking Pa Sommer in the eye

"May we speak in private Monsieur, so that I might give you my side of the story..." he glances at Betty "...in an unexaggerated and uninterrupted fashion"

Tybalt loudly greets Eugene and Juan "Everything fine Eugene, these good folks were just helping me manage the herd for a bit". Tybalt puts his hand on Eugene's good shoulder "Please let's tie up the horses and head inside the Obrador's home we can catch up on town gossip. "Mister Ramon let me introduce two of cattle hands Eugene and Juan. Good stout dependable men these two are" Tybalt says to the couple to convey thta there is no danger.

Eugene, still confused, yet trusting Tybalt implicitly, begins to tie up Lincoln. He motions to Juan to do the same.

"Ah, the silver-tongued Gentile seeks to flatter and persuade," says Pa Sommer. "Step out onto the back porch, boy, and speak your piece." As he walks you toward the kitchen he says loudly, "If you think you'll lay hands on me or defile my daughter again, I reckon there's a good half-dozen righteous men here who know how to tie a noose and raise a gallows." Several men murmur their ascent as you move through the kitchen and out the backdoor onto the porch. He stands straight with his hands on his hips, left hand clutching The Book of Mormon, and says, "Well, what have you to say for yourself, boy?"

@Shemek hiTankolel, are you still with us? MacRegan's been hanging out in the marshal's office for a while and there's an ordinance against loitering.
