Hawkeye: *Sitting da the tracks on Archer collina with a più fresco, dispositivo di raffreddamento full of beer, watching trains pass him* Here's to te Percy. *Grabs a bottle of beer, smashes the superiore, in alto open, and drinks out of it* I don't know if you'll survive o not, but I really hope te do. *Grabs another birra bottle, smashes the superiore, in alto of that one open, and drinks out of it*
successivo morning at the train station, Pete walked into his office at 6:55 AM.
Pete: *Sees Hawkeye sleeping on his desk* Pierce!
Hawkeye: *Wakes up, and gets off the desk* Yes?
Pete: How did te get into my office?
Hawkeye: te left the door unlocked.
Pete: Why did te lock yourself in here?
Hawkeye: I needed a place to sleep.
Pete: What's wrong with your home?
Hawkeye: Too far away. *Walks out of the office, and walks to the train yard*
Hawkeye's first job for the giorno was to drive a freight train to Denver with Mirage. No one knew that Hawkeye was drunk from all of the beers he drank last night.
Hawkeye: *Starts to feel queasy* I have to get out.
Mirage: What for?
Hawkeye: *Getting ready to throw up*
Mirage: Sorry I asked. *Stops the train*
Hawkeye: *Gets out, and vomits*
Mirage: Forgive me for asking, but are te drunk?
Hawkeye: Uh.... maybe? I forgot to study for that.
Mirage: *Gets on the radio* Train 923, we stopped on the mainline, the engineer is drunk.
Snowflake: Drunk? Who?
Snowflake: *Shocked* Are te sure it's him?
Mirage: I'm staring right at him, and it's not a pretty sight!!
Hawkeye: *Angry at Mirage* I may not be the Mona Lisa, but I got good locks!
Mirage: te mean looks!
Hawkeye: That's what I detto te Ford loving son of a bitch!
Mirage: I don't even own a Ford.
Hawkeye: eh, up yours. *Walks away*
At the station, Pete saw Hawkeye walking towards him.
Pete: Pierce, what's going on?
Hawkeye: Going on what? I don't see anything on anything.
Pete: Are te drunk?
Hawkeye: According to Mirage I am. *Falls down on the floor*
Pete: Get up.
Hawkeye: *Gets up*
Pete: And go home. I don't know what's gotten into you, but te need to get your act together! You're suspended from work for a week.
Hawkeye: *Walks out of the station*
Two days later. Hawkeye went to the hospital to see Percy.
Hawkeye: *Enters Percy's room* Hey. How are you?
Percy: Good. *Looks at his clock* But it's 8 o' clock. Aren't te supposed to be at work?
Hawkeye: Pete suspended me from work for a week.
Percy: What for?
Hawkeye: I got drunk, because I was worried about you.
Percy: te got drunk?
Percy: But you're not supposed to do that. te have an important job, and a big reputation. Lots of ponies are depending on te to-
Hawkeye: *Angry* Okay, te know what? I was feeling miserable about te being in that train wreck, but now that you're being annoying, I don't give a shit. Fuck reputations, fuck those ponies that depend on me to do a good job, and fuck my job as well! *Goes to the door, but before he leaves, he stares at Percy* And while I'm at it, fuck you!! It's all your fault that Ike is dead! Why don't te just grow up, and stop being so careless?! *Leaves the room*
A week later at the train station, Hawkeye arrived at the station with Metal Gloss.
Hawkeye: *Parks his car in the parking lot da the station*
Orion: *Staring at him*
Metal Gloss: Why is he staring at te like that?
Hawkeye: I'm not sure. It might be another way for him to get fired. *Gets out of his car, and walks to the station*
Orion: Percy told me about what te detto to him yesterday.
Orion: te should be ashamed of yourself! te just shouted at him for no reason. How would te like it if someone told te that it was your fault for somepony's death when it wasn't?
Hawkeye: *Passes Orion, and walks into the station*
Pete: Pierce, welcome back.
Pete: Now leave!
Pete: You're suspended for an entire week! Again!
Hawkeye: *Sighs, and walks out of the station*
Jeff: Hawkeye, may I ask te a question?
Hawkeye: Sure, as long as it has nothing to do with-
Jeff: WHAT IS THE MATTER WITH YOU?!!? Percy gets involved in a train crash, breaks three of his legs, and te shout at him like he's nothing!!
Hawkeye: *Walks back to his car*
Metal Gloss: What are te going to do Pierce?
Hawkeye: I have no idea. Everypony hates me.
Metal Gloss: Not everypony. There's one pony that still likes you, but te need to apologize to him.
Pierce: *Sighs* I doubt he'll accept it.
Back at the hospital
Percy: *With a nurse*
Nurse: The doctor says you'll be out tomorrow, and that your legs will be perfectly fine.
Percy: That's excellent news.
Hawkeye: *Walks into the room* May I speak to Percy?
Nurse: He needs to rest.
Percy: It's alright. This won't take long.
Nurse: *Walks out of the room*
Hawkeye: Percy, I just wanna-
Percy: Look. Remember last time te were here, and te detto fuck te to my face?
Hawkeye: Yeah, but I wanna-
Percy: Well fuck te too.
Hawkeye: I came here to apologize.
Percy: I don't care. Just leave.
Hawkeye: *Leaves the hospital*
On the giorno that Percy returned to work from the hospital, he saw Pete standing in front of the station.
Percy: Hi sir.
Pete: Hello Percy. Come with me to my office. *Walks into his office with Percy, and sits at his desk*
Percy: What's going on?
Pete: I want te to listen to this voice mail that Pierce left me. *Plays the voice mail*
Hawkeye: ciao Pete, it's me Pierce. Uh, I went to apologize to Percy about what I said, but he wouldn't accept it. Nopony likes me around this area anymore, so I was thinking about quitting, and moving into Laramie. Metal Gloss is going to stay here, we didn't get divorced, but I don't deserve to be here after what I've done. I'll come da after my suspension is over, and uh, say goodbye to te before I go. It was great working here, but... nothing lasts forever. *Ends his call*
Pete: He's been going through a lot, and was very worried about you.
Percy: i don't know what to say.
Pete: te know how they say time heals all wounds? It's true. Hawkeye really cares for you, and when he comes here, I want te to talk to him.
After Hawkeye's suspension, he came to the station to say good bye to Pete.
Hawkeye: *Walks into the station, and goes into Pete's office, but sees Percy there instead* Where's Pete?
Percy: In the yards. He's trying to find someone to take over your job.
Hawkeye: Well, tell him I detto hi, and that I'm going to miss him.
Percy: Wait, before te go, I wanna tell te something.
Hawkeye: If it's another fuck you, I deserve it.
Percy: No, it's not that. I was just thinking that I was a little hard on te when te tried to apologize to me.
Hawkeye: And I was too hard on te when I was shouting at you. I didn't mean any of that.
Percy: I know te didn't.
Hawkeye: Are we still friends?
Hawkeye: *Sees Pete's phone. The phone is not on the dial* How long has-
Percy: *Grabs the phone* Did te get all of that?
Pete: We sure did.
Hawkeye: What's going on here?
Pete: *Walks into the station with Mirage, Orion, Snowflake, Stylo, Nikki, Jeff, and Metal Gloss. They're all cheering*
Hawkeye: *Smiles* Let me see if I got this right. te guys went to a phone booth outside of the station, and called the phone in this office.
Pete: Yep. It was a little hard to hear, but we heard the entire conversation.
Stylo: And we all forgive you.
Hawkeye: Well then, let's celebrate after work!
After work, they all went to a restaurant, ordered hot Cani with root birra floats, while listening to Rock & Roll.
