Komano was telling Edward about Tom going to Ringoes.
Edward: What's he doing there? Komano: He's a volunteer on the Black River & Western. He's helping everypony evacuate to Ringoes. Edward: Well, I hope it doesn't take too long.
Over at Rutgers Landscaping Nursery in Ringoes, Nikki heard some of her co-workers talking about the fuoco in Ponyville.
Mare 68: They're planning to evacuate everypony, at least that's what I understand so far. Nikki: Where? Mare 25: Ponyville. Nikki: That's where Tom works. Mare 25: te wanna leave early, and see if he's okay? Nikki: What'll our manager say? Boss: *Behind...
Monday morning, Tom was back at work at Wawa. The gas station had seven cars. Tom, Edward, and Komano were having a good time.
Edward: Alright, have a good day. Mare 52: Thank you. *Drives away in a Pontiac* Tom: *Opens a gas tank on a mini-van* Good morning. Mare 88: Hi, can te fill it please? Tom: I'd be happy to, but with what? Mare 88: Regular. Tom: Yes ma'am. *Takes her credit card, and swipes it* Benny: *Arriving in his Audi* Komano: Uh oh. It's this stallion again. Benny: *Steps out of his car, and smokes a cigarette* Komano: Tom, look out! Tom: *Turns around, and sees Benny smoking a cigarette*...
Tom: *Walking with Nikki* How's 60 today? Carlos: Tom, good morning. Hunter: 60's in great shape. We're getting the fuoco started now. Tom: This is a good friend of mine, Nikki West. Nikki: Howdy. Carlos: I'm Carlos Licciardi. Hunter: And I'm Hunter. Pleased to meet you. Tom: We were hoping you'd let Nikki drive engine 60. Hunter: Alright. She can help us get the passenger cars over to the station. Nikki: Yay!
Once the fuoco got ready in the firebox, the water began to boil, and create steam.
Carlos: We have enough pressure to move. Release the brakes, and open the throttle. Nikki:...
Nikki went on her laptop, and searched for Tom on facebook.
Tom: *Uploading a picture onto Facebook from his cell phone. He receives a notification from Nikki West* A friend request? This is a nice surprise.
Tom was helping her again at the gas station.
Nikki: te think we could hang out, perhaps? Tom: I'm down for that. Where would te like to go? Nikki: The park. I Amore that stream, and I also like walking past all those trees. Tom: *Stops the gas pump* You're at 20. te don't want that receipt. Nikki: That's right. Tom: *Puts the nozzle back on the pump, then closes up Nikki's tank* You're good...
After seeing Tom, Nikki went back to the landscaping company to continue her work.
Mare 25: te get to see Tom again at Wawa? Nikki: Shut up. *Laughs* Mare 25: When are te going to ask him out? Nikki: We're only friends.
Another mare walks over to them.
Melanie: Can any of te help me find a tree? Nikki: I got te covered. Melanie: Thank you. da the way, I'm new to Ponyville. I'm Melanie Lockmann. Nikki: I'm Nikki West. Put 'er there. *Shakes hooves with Melanie* So what kind of albero are te lookin' for? Melanie: Anything with some nice leaves, o fiori on it. mostra me the prettiest trees te have....
