About as friendly as it sounds. An isolated canyon just a mile from Splitcreek, some pretty shady stuff goes down here. With just one way in and, consequently, one way out, the gulch works as the perfect place to trap anyone foolish enough to wander by. It's the site of many shoot outs and show downs, and it's rumoured the screams of the dead still echo through this ravine.

A whistle sounded behind Jan, but he didn't dare turn to meet the distraction. He knew the plan all to well; get him to look away, then shoot him in the back of the head. Instead, he kept his neck poised high as it could go, with a dead stare and a flat lip planted on his face. The truth was that he wanted to crumple into a ball and call for his mommy, but he help himself in good composure despite his urges.

Out of nowhere, two rough looking men sprang up from behind two all-to-well placed boulders in front of him. Both were armed with guns that could take his head off before he could blink, and extra rough looking to boot. One jaunted out of cover, while the other stuck behind keeping Hass well centered in his sights. His walked within several feet of the cart with a almost calm look. Seems like Hass was not the only one worried. Little did they know how defenseless he was. They could piss on him and he could do nothing about it. Finally he opened his mouth to speak.

"Ma' name's Richard Jones Bell and I do say it's a pleasure do meet you in person Mr.. Hass was it?'' Jesus, the hick sounded like he was raised in a bush, or maybe a sack of horse crap. He definitely looked the part. He then provided to slowly stride around the cart to the rear, while keeping his one readily available eye on the items he asked for.

'' I reckon everything we need is here?'' Jans spine almost bunched up at first hearing those fatal words. This was the turning point of this deal. If this "Mr. Bell" saw anything wrong with the items, he might just blow Hasses brains all over the cart. Or take him hostage and demand a ransom for him along with the gold. The scariest part was that he wasn't sure what whisky brand he liked, so he just watered down some cheap stuff. Heres to him not taking offense to that.

"Yep, every things there..." He said with the most steady voice he could muster, before swallowing down a swath of saliva and continuing, " ... Wheres the gold?"
