Men stood conversing with one another of work gone by, the stage was set and Old man Nickson stood upon it.
“Now listen hear ya’ll, this here is the finest nigga collection this side of the Mississippi” His voice echoed around the barn where the slaves waited for their sentence.
“You don’t think they’ll separate us do you Ba’badean?” Resoles soft voice beaten back from years at the end of a whip and the bottom of a boot, whispered amongst the huddled slaves.
“Now, all that I’m asking from ya’ll is that, there be no punching or a’ kick’en when someone loses a bid…” Nicksons voice rang through the dusty air and into Resoles already flailing hope. “Especially none of that donkey lighten business that happen on Mr Sherlys ranch a few weeks back, do’ya hear?”

“SOLD!! Mr Pea’dibble, you are a man of excellent taste” Nickson shook the rugged hand Mr Pea’dibble as he handed over documentation and a chain.
The lone ranger spat, prodded the dirt of which he spat upon and with an unsuspecting step full of justice, stepped in horse sh**.
“Now, look’y hee’r, a fine fine house maid, good for all yall who want to help ya misses with her wifely duties.” Nicksons arm wrapped over the shoulders of Resole,
“Now let’s start the bidding.”
