Prairie's Children -- Back to the West, Chapter 8 (Final)

 

 

 

 

I have been away for a long time, but I knew I had to finish this story. In the future, I think I may present a story in full before placing it here. My stories are to be published in book form, starting with the
“Adventures of Lizzie Jane”

Remember, she is a female gunslinger and the woman with her is a sharp shooter.  It is said the other woman can shoot a target dead center while riding a horse at full gallop.  I think you can handle them, but not here in town.  It would cause too many questions, so what I suggest is to ride out into the desert and lead them into an ambush.  That way, no one will know who did it and you would be in the clear.”

Quickly locating the water trough, Annie set about to see about some supplies for themselves.  Ruth decided to just wander around the area not looking for anything in particular.  She walked by a young Indian with some skins to peddle.

What have you around your neck?” he asked.  Ruth stopped, surprised at his good English. He looked to be about 20 years old and was very handsome.

Touching the necklace the Indian chief had given her for bravely and was wearing for luck, she replied, “This was given me by a friend.”

“You must be Fighting Wildcat,” said the Indian.....

Exhausted, Ruth collapsed at the edge of the tracks. In the distance, she could hear the whistle of a steam locomotive and realized a train would be passing by soon. She dragged her weary body further from the railroad. Although the thought had crossed her mind that death would be sweet, she did not have a desire to commit suicide, accidently or intentionally.

She had developed a fascination for trains, but now the puffing huge machine appeared to be a monster, ready to destroy anything in its path. Ruth watched with hate as it roared past, but much to her amazement, it began to slow down and eventually stop a few yards down the track. Strange!

 She felt a gentle hand touch her shoulder and heard a man's voice as sweet as if it came from the mouth of an angel, “Sister, what is wrong? I will pray with you.”

Ruth looked up, saw a man and believed his face shone. "Are you God?"

 “Prisoners? Escape?” questioned Ruth.

“Yes, the same men you captured, the ones who had robbed the bank, pulled off a easy escape yesterday with the help of two women. One of the women fits your aunt's description,” answered the Sheriff.

“Oh,” said Ruth in shock. “The men kidnapped my baby – to get back at me?”

Ruth fell backwards into a chair. She held her head in her hands and began to cry. 'Oh, my poor baby! Gone! What can I do?”

 Sometimes women are stubborn -- such as facing a professional gunslinger in the middle of the steet to protect her husband-to-be, having never practiced a "quick draw" in her life. With no hope of winning a gun fight, Ruth intended to prove that she was that kind of a frontier woman.
