There was one thought in the minds of all, critters and humans…
Season VI, Chapter 2 Conclusion, Afterword:
Things settled down some. Big Mac, Boomer & Larry returned to Moosehead City to find it almost boring, and too quiet—even “Ma” Simpson was behaving—sort of. She’d purchased a log cabin just outside the town limits and installed a pair of red-tinted oil lamps on the outside, Needless to say, it quickly became quite popular with the some of the loggers; particularly on payday. For others, less inclined for that kind of comfort, there was always Ma’s Dancehall; it was far less expensive there for a good time after a long day of logging.
Bart Nathaniel fully recovered from his wound and became Adelbert Simpson’s partner at the Williams’ Station Bank, and the two of them were earning a reputation for honesty and integrity in Moosehead County.
Susan & Alice settled-in at Seven Tables and Susan’s stepsons proved to be a quick-study when it came to the cooking and baking for which Seven Tables would become known. But Susan, after having a taste of adventure AND after Alice told her of her own adventures, found she wanted more. She wanted to go on an adventure with Alice.
Deputy Danger Bay Town Marshal Cooper once again turned in her badge—and Town Marshal Blackmon accepted her resignation (for now, knowing full good & well that the time would come…). Cooper and PepperCooper happily spent their time working at Silverthorn Trading—something James and his soon-to-be wife, Keezeekoni (Burning Fire), appreciated.
Keezeekoni had taken a room at the Orphanage as offered by Doc Shouse when one became available, she had grown tired of the five-mile trip to and from the village each day. She and Chris began to hector James into setting a date for their marriage; which, if you knew either of them, you would know the marriage would happen sooner, rather than later.
And then news spread throughout the county—there had been a murder in Grand Marais…
