Scout watched as the other girl walked back and around her. Good girl. Baker always struck her as smart. She leveled a glare at the boy though, who was busy playing dumb.

"You know what I meant," Scout said, shoulders tensed. "You came in so loud, you damn near spooked her outta her skin."

She motioned to Baker. It did not count as throwing her under the bus if she wasn't going to defend herself.

For a moment, Scout wondered about the best way to approach the 'gun' situation. Even with Baker tucked safely away, Scout was beginning to have second thoughts about how quickly she could close the gap. Would asking about it cause more trouble than it was worth? How would she even approach that? "Is that a pistol in your pocket or are you just happy to see us?" Fat chance. He'd probably laugh, maybe he'd think she was being serious.

It was clear that gun, whether it was real or fake or whatever, was the elephant in the room. And to think, she thought she was going to have a pleasant conversation with Baker. Her hands slid into her pants pockets. The silence was urging her to speak.

Just get to the point.

"... I'd ask you to drop your gun."

She rolled her shoulders.

"I have a feeling you won't be doing that. So..."

Scout stopped talking. She didn't make a move.

"Name's Scout." She gestured to the other girl. "This is Baker - " Scout winced, "err, Alice."
