September 3rd, 2009

Colt walked into the bank briskly. And for some reason all the customers began to move away from him. It was almost like they were afraid of a man that walked into a bank visibly strapped with guns. "Yall got nothing ta worry about! I'm just here ta make a.." Someone screamed. "Deposit!"

The security guard walked up to him, "Sir, I am going to have to ask you to leave."

"Now hold on just a moment." Colt unfastened his gun belt, as well as the strap that held Marlin on his back. He handed them to the security guard. "I reckon I ain't here ta make trouble. Just lookin ta open an account..."

Folks in this world sure are paranoid. You'd think nona them'd seen a cowboy before.

---

A few hours later, Colt left the bank, having deposited all of the money from his world in a safety deposit box. It wouldn't do him any good here...

A new group of heroes, it said. Just what this city needs, it said. Just what you're looking for. Colt mused as he screamed across town on his Stellar Cycle. The places where traffic impeded his movement he simply lifted off the ground and flew through the air above the other citizens of Freedom City.

Reckon I'll see where this wild ride takes me...

"Damn it!" Colt slammed his head down on the keyboard in the Underground. "Reckon s'like th' yella bellied dog dropped offa the face'a th'earth'er somthin'!"

Colt had been using all of his spare time to scour the city for Angel Eyes. When he had turned up nothing in the city, he had been expanding the search geographically ever since. Whenever the sensors weren't being used to detect crimes in the city, he'd been commandeering them for his own searches. It was getting to the point where he could feel obsession setting in.

"All this technology ain't doin' squat! I'll be th'son'va cow pie if'n I'm'a gonna let'em git away." With renewed vigor, Colt began typing away at the keyboard once more.
