With brown eyes blazing and voice rough with excitement Lillie addressed the group. “I have known you all less than half an hour and already I have had to draw my guns twice. I don’t like to draw them unless I have to use them. I don’t do threats.”

Someone in the back of the group sniggered loudly.

“So, I’ll say this only once. If I have to draw again, it’ll be to shoot. I don’t care who it is.”

Tex stepped into the room and scanned the room. “If everyone will please exit to the front of the building you will find transportation has arrived. Have a safe journey and remember the rules.”

“OK. What rules are those?” someone murmured softly so as to not be heard.

“I dunno,” Molly whispered back. “But I bet it involves NOT blowing anything up!”

Tex frowned at Lillie as she passed. There was something niggling at the back of his neck about her. He didn’t like it. Nope. Not a bit. But, he supposed he’d have to put up with her for the duration. Doc Brown didn’t send people on a whim. If he had sent her it was because she was important to the mission and had an agenda of her own to fulfill.  Maybe that was what bothered him. Her agenda. What was her agenda, he wondered with a speculative look in his eyes.
