Virgin Flame arrives in Baltimare and makes her aqua intense with the staff of a Cathedral there. Spark goes back to Blackwood, helping a rebel and several wolves. Iron takes a train off to the mountains where there is said to be treasure. Silver is pleasantly surprised to wake up to the world-not-ending. Dark Star goes home for the night, disturbed by the forces corrupting the youth, and left to contemplate his role in stopping it.

Mala steps closer to Mint Marine, and places a paw on him, and then a foreleg. He starts to pet him.

"Odd name. And as nice as pools are, I don't see how they help ponies other than giving them a place to swim."

White Orchid turns, looking strangely at Silver. He is still dressed in a large dragon-serpent costume. Silver gets a feel of a red fabric set of scales on Orchid’s back. Again, he is less comfortable with touching than Mala is, evidently.

Silver follows the little pony down white washed hallways, past wooden doors, and to a set of double doors at the end. The doors open into a room that spans both floors, sloping down with rows of seats towards a raised wooden stage. The chairs have built in wooden tables in front of them, and the whole room most closely resembles a university lecture hall. With white walls, a shallow stage, no backstage, and large windows providing natural light the room is suboptimal for a play, yet still silver can see that and effort is being made. Three foals are on the stage . One pink unicorn filly wears a white, thin garnet, while a green and a brown Colt each wear face paint, interestingly, of whichever of those two colors, green and brown, the colt lacks. There are two large paper machete trees on the center right and center left of the stage. Two nuns in robs sit in the first row, watching them.

White Orchid walks ahead of Silver. The tail, long and unwieldy, touches the ground and drags along it as he descends down the sloping center path. He attempts to turn to Silver

“It’s a play about the story of Saint Colopa.”

“It’s a Saint. From the early days after Hearthswarming. She went further south, and came upon some native ponies. And they didn’t trust her exactly. But there was this river, and this river had a ferocious monster. Or so they said there was a ferocious monster. And then one day she had to cross this river, and she had some of the leaders with them because they were going to a meeting or something. Like, some sort of dispute between clans and she was trying to mediate if, but they had to go back to their sacred place which was across the river. Anyways, there was this river. And the river had a monster in it. And the natives thought the monster would attack. And it almost did. But Saint Colopa tried to talk to the monster, and it was threatening at first, but they found out that the monster was just afraid of the ponies because of their traps and how they placed logs in the river. So she showed the monster kindness and befriended the monster. And this impressed the leaders of the clans, and got them to stop fighting each other. And they later joined Equestria, probably because of her and that day.”

The colt tries to look back, finds that the costume doesn't really allow this, and then tries to turn all the way around, with the tail squishing up against a wooden base of a table top. He tries to look up at Silver, within the frame of the red and yellow costume.

"It's a uh..." She looks away "I'm more familiar with the plants... and this isn't exactly the jungle. But uh.." She stops to look over at the bush, and moves multiple steps closer. White Sands, almost uneasy, keeps her distance from the bush, and focuses her eyes forward, and then up at the sky, onto the mountainside, and behind them as she steps ahead of the two.

The bush shakes, once, and then suddenly in a big movement. Then slowly, a very large and fat looking rodent with black fur. Black Cauldron smiles. "That's a guinea pig." She says

Sands has the rifle out, and tries to aim down its sights at some unseen target behind Iron and to his right, in the direction of the brush and the mountainside. Black Cauldron is spooked, and she gallops ahead a moment, looks around, gasps, and starts forward. There is the definite sound of disturbed brush behind them. White Sands does something with the rifle that makes it flinch, and then she frantically lowers the rifle to inspect it.

Iron hears the beat of claws against the sand, and a sees the shape of a large, tan coated big cat, close enough to see the golden eyes, yellowed-white teeth, white muzzle, pink nose, pointy ears and showing ribs in that moment as it jumps to attack Iron, before coming invisible in a flash, disappearing into a blind spot behind him. He feels the creature come down on his rear, hit him with the side of its mouth, and make a side swipe at his hindlegs, hitting the left leg.

The claw slashes into his hind leg and his flank, causing serious pain, and drawing significant blood. Though Iron is injured and rocked to the side, he is not knocked to the ground, and he stands up on the strength of his other three legs.

Inhaling sharply at the pain for a second, Iron soon turns towards the attacker with great anger, opting to non-lethally strike the attacking feline with everything he's got through his two hind legs, despite his recently acquired injury.

The creature is hit firmly, and knocked back with a "mrow!" sound

A large red hole appears along the creature's back. The creature makes a quick turn, and prepares to run. But its leg goes limp, and the creature falls to the ground, unable to get up.

Iron breathed out a small sigh of relief at the sight, somewhat grateful it didn't get any worse, but part of him wanted to see if he could plausibly heal the feline and leave him, so he intentionally went closer to it to see if there was a chance for that to happen.

The bullet appears to have gone through the top of the creature's back just above the lower part of its rib cage. Whether the the bullet broke any bones can't be determined, though the presence of an exit wound implies the bullet went through flesh, perhaps barely ricocheting against a rib or the spine. Whether it hit a major artery, a nerve, or part of the lungs is hard to say.

The creature is still alive, bleeding, still breathing, and unable to move.

Feeling a shred of empathy at the feline's struggles, he soon turned towards either of the two mares with a somewhat concerned look. "Do we have anything for it to eat?" he inquired, showing his eagerness to rescue the cat from the jaws of death. "Maybe it can help us later."

The cat lies on its side, breathing heavily. Iron can see that it has more problems than just being shot in the back and kicked in the chest and neck. It has thin fur in many areas, naked splotches, and overly red and irritated skin in the areas that are hairless. Some of the redness appears to be the result of the creat biting or stratching itself. But some of it appears completely unrelated. The skin in areas is about to fall off.

"...seems this feline has been having some health problems," Iron mused with a small degree of disgust, feeling rather sorry for the potentially flea-riddled creature.
Just to make sure, he'd inspect the hairless areas to ensure there were no signs of the little insects that like to hide underneath the fur.

Looking under the hair, Iron can see that much of the skin is overly red, or starting to peel, and hairs come out even as Iron moves them. Iron finds one tick along its back, but there are no signs of mites or of flea infestation.

More seriously, the creature is still bleeding from a major gunshot. If the bullet nipped its postcava artery, it is all over already, and as it is, it is bleeding heavily.

The creature is also emaciated with its ribs showing. It was definitely not eating well.

Thus, with an understanding yet solemn nod, Iron steps away from the feline in question, knowing that their death would most likely end its suffering from whatever caused such malnourishment and disease to overtake it. "Poor thing was borderline dead before it attacked us," he muttered, quite saddened at the revelation.
He sniffled softly before reluctantly readying himself to stomp it on the head to end it quickly but waiting to see if the mares had any objections or ways to help it pull through before doing the heartbreaking feat.

The two mares are simply silent. White Sands blinks, and her mouth opens slightly, while Cauldron's simple staring is a bit harder to gauge.
