It was a morning like all mornings. The land was still blanketed in the darkness of the night with just the illumination from the warm orange street lights and the occasional streak of silvery light from the crescent moon.

Bread, cheese, waterskins, dagger, revolver, some cash, extra clothes – it was all for the long ride to town tomorrow. Perhaps I should pack extra oats for Chester. As if he had read her thoughts, Chester – seemingly still awake in his stable – snorted loudly. Winona beam  Read More...
