The suivant day, the station was all set up for the party. Everypony was there to celebrate, except Jeff. He was on his way back to Cheyenne from St. Foalis.
Zack: *Arrives at station* Hola everypony.
Ponies: Hey. *Cheering*
Metal Gloss: Zack, I'm so glad toi could make it. Let me introduce toi to some of the ponies I work with.
Metal Gloss: This is Stylo.
Stylo: And if you're wondering, the last name is Bevaria.
Zack: Nice to meet toi Stylo.
Metal Gloss: This is my boss Pete.
Pete: I arranged this whole party for toi when Metal Gloss told me about toi getting out of jail.
Zack: Thank toi Pete.
Metal Gloss: This is Orion Stardust.
Orion: *Salutes* At your service sir.
Zack: Thank you.
Metal Gloss: This is one of the ponies that fix track, named Percy.
Percy: There's another poney that works with me, but he's not here.
Metal Gloss: Here's another pony, named Snowflake.
Snowflake: How do toi do?
Zack: Fine thank you.
Metal Gloss: And this is my special somepony, Pierce Hawkins.
Hawkeye: But everypony calls me Hawkeye.
Zack: Really? Why is that?
Hawkeye: I don't know. I think it's because my last name sounds so similar to it.
Coffee Crème: Hey, aren't toi forgetting two ponies?!
Metal Gloss: Oh yeah, that's Frenchy, and the fat unicorn nopony cares about.
Gordon: Hey! Everypony cares about me!
Hawkeye: The minute toi actually do your work right, let us all know. Then, we'll start to care about you.
Pete: Enough chit chat, let's get this party started. *Turns on record player*
This is the song playing: link
Ponies: *Dancing with each other*
Zack: *Sees Hawkeye, and Metal Gloss dancing, and walks up to the both of them* salut Metal Gloss.. When you're done, can I talk to you?
Metal Gloss: toi can talk to me now. Is that okay Pierce?
Hawkeye: Sure, go ahead. *Walks to get punch*
Zack & Metal Gloss: *Walk outside of station*
Metal Gloss: What's the matter? toi look sad.
Zack: I wanted to get a job here, but they a dit I couldn't because of my criminal record.
Metal Gloss: That's not fair!
Zack: I know it's not fair, but they won't listen to me.
Metal Gloss: Alright, I'll tell toi what. When I'm not busy, toi can come here, and we can talk, and have conversations.
Zack: Yeah, okay. Thank you, I appreciate it.
Mirage: *Brings passenger train into station*
Zack: Who was that poney driving the train?
Metal Gloss: That's our newest worker, Nocturnal Mirage. He came all the way from Hungary to work for us.
Zack: He's Hungarian? Cool.
Mirage: *Stops train at station*
Jeff: *Walks off train* Come on Metal Gloss! Stop talking when there's work to be done!
Metal Gloss: Will toi excuse me for a minute?
Metal Gloss: *Runs to Jeff* Zack, and I are very good friends, and toi two have something in common toi know.
Jeff: We do? And what would that be?
Metal Gloss: Jail.
Jeff: *Gasps* Don't mention that word! It makes my legs wobble!
Metal Gloss: It does the same to Zack. He got framed for stealing the police commissioner's car. Now he's trying to work for us, but he can't because of his criminal record. Even so, it's time that we get another poney to help us. Pete needs to hire another poney as an engineer.
Jeff: Yes he does, and quickly. *Checks clock* Well, if you'll excuse me I'm assigned to take a freight train all the way to Portland.
Metal Gloss: Good luck.
