Dakota could see every muscle in Ruby body tighten up as a large rustle escaped from the bushes.
"Tata Duende," she whispered.
Dakota gave his head a slight shake. "No... worse."
Before Ruby could respond a series of machetes broke through the dense jungle. Two dark skinned men pointed their machetes at Dakota and Ruby to protect the pasty man that followed. Four more men with machetes follow.
"Moses," said Dakota, a sneer on his face.
"Ahhh... Dakota it's so nice to see you again," sang Moses, his voice high and nasally. "Oh, and Ruby, lovely as ever. Fancy meeting the two of you here."
"Yeah, fancy that," said Dakota.
Moses walks around Ruby. "So what brings you two out in the jungle on this fine day? Are we looking for a temple? Maybe some Mayan ruins?" He grabs Ruby's chin as she tries to flinch back. "Perhaps your searching for a certain peridot necklace?"
"I don't know what you're talking about," said Ruby, finally jerking her head away.
Moses laughed. "So you're just out here having a little picnic... maybe a lover's trist?"
"What do you want, Moses?" Dakota asked, taking the madman's focus away from Ruby.
"The same thing you do, Dakota, world peace, end world hunger, and the Peridot Princess." With a snap of his fingers, the men surround Dakota and Ruby. "And you're going to help me find it, aren't you?"
