Without stopping cleaning, Lickity replies happily, "Another set of hooves cleaning would be appreciated. You could also help Pine with his nick-nacks as well, or peruse the regulations." He keeps talking, more to himself than to Starsong at this point. "A check on the storage would be a good idea as well, so we know if there's anything left over that's going out. Probably should prep a letter letting the actual offices know what we're doing, so mail doesn't just start showing up at their door. Ooh!" The mustached pone stops cleaning and looks at Starsong excitedly. "We could use the priority stamps!"

The deer snatches the parcel away and examines it, the only noise he makes is from inhaling and exhaling. After studying the package, he turns his icy gaze to you, a raggedy old scarf preventing you from reading his facial expression. You can only see his stare and his antlers on his vaguely pyramid-esque head...

"I.. uh.... guess I'll be going now. H-have a good day Mr. Hill." Chance says as she retreats.

Silent Hill watches you leave for a bit before turning back into his shack and closing the door...

The next package is for Summit Peak. Considering it is a big bag of coffee beans it was obvious it was for before you had even checked the address...

Meanwhile, back in the Post Office...

Chance inspect the coffee beans to determine if they're still good and if so what the quality was and who/where they were from, etc.

It's whole bean coffee, java, it's still in date, smells just fine. It's from a family of ponies Summit has told you about before. He met one of them in Equestria and made a connection, and now orders coffee from them at a discounted price. In fact, you remember him mumbling about a late delivery not too long ago...

Lickity and Starsong, you both hear the creaking of floorboards...

Concerned, Starsong goes over into the next room to try to investigate the sound of creaking floor boards (while very carefully flying in case that sound is the floor giving out or something).

Lickity slows his cleaning and, after a moment, calls out towards the creaking, "Hello? Someone else here?"

Chance smiles at the bag's contents and brings it over to the Peak Twin's Cafe.

"Yes," responds a call out...

As you walk into the cafe, you are greeted by the usual warm greeting that a loyal employee like you deserves...

"Why you late again?"

This is accompanied by a light poke of a broom, which Chance instinctively dodges by leaning away slightly. You know that Ridge Peak asks why you are late every single time you walk in, even when you are on time, early, or not even working that day. Literally the one times he doesn't say it is if you get to the cafe before he does. Meanwhile, Summit Peak sits at a counter, reading a magazine and shaking his head at his brother...

Chance says, "Hi Ridge. Needles' birthday remember? Anyway, apparently he's declared himself lord tyrant of the post office and I found this there." She walks over to Summit as she speaks and hands him the bag of coffee beans. "Guess that explains why that was late. Raises the question of why someone brought it to a closed boarded up post office but...." and at this she shrugs.

"Ah, good show, good show," responds Summit as he takes the bag. He opens it up and gets a good sniff. "Ah, top notch stuff. And here I was just thinking the post office was just being dodgy."

It isn't Starsong saying that. As you move towards the voice, a red colt jumps out in front of you. "Freeze!" shouts the colt, "You are under arrest!"

This is Bright Badge, the son of Hot Fuzz, the local police officer. He idolizes his father, who is competent but because Hushbrook is such a small place the most he ever does is settle disputes. Still, Bright Badge loves his dad, and will often follow him around imitating him (or at least, his ideal view of his father)...

"Well have a good day you two." and with that Chance goes outside and roots around in the bag for any more mail. And she discovers something addressed to herself as well as Starsong and Lickity Split. "Odd...." she remarks and contemplates opening it right then and there, but figures it'd be better to just bring it to the others and open it together.

Lickity takes a half-step back, before shaking his head and mock rubbing out an ear with a hoof. "I'm right here; ya don' have t' shout." He pauses for a moment more before resuming, "So wha's the problem, lil' officer?"

"Nuh-uh, the post office has been closed for years, no pony works here, and it was all boarded up!"

"Lickity, is that you?" the first voice calls out again from the first room, deeper and more gruff than the voice of Bright Badge...

"Needles decided that him, Lickity, Chance and I should work to get the post office back up and running again, though I'm not sure how this is connected to today being his birthday." Starsong says, dropping to the floor.

Lickity finishes his face hoof and gently shakes his head slightly. "Not any other locals, I don't think. We only learned of his plan within the last hour, actually."
