"Do you think we finally got away from them?" Clem asked from his position crouched behind a boulder.

"I saw the healer and gambler stay back in town to help people. We only had the other five after us. I'm pretty sure we hit the big one while we were riding, but that leaves the kid, the cowboy, Larabee and Tanner out there," Lem replied.


"Uh... Buck something."

"But we're safe up here, right?"

"I suppose so, but there are tales about Tanner, about how he stayed with the indians and learned to prowl around from a cat. They say you can't hear him coming until it's too late, and then you're best off begging for your life, 'cause if you don't... Well, let's just say it ain't pretty."

"Is that what they're saying?" a strange voice asked.
