Family reunions

Fort Justice BannerPreviously: “Are you referring to 2nd Platoon? They have been essentially destroyed and Captain McMillan has been arrested,” Cooper smiled, “He is a most talkative fellow and has explained your entire operation.”

McClellan just stood there realizing it was over, “What now?”

“You will join McMillan in the guard-house until a court-martial can be arranged.”

Meanwhile—back along the trail from Loco…They found a defensible position and were waiting for the outlaws.

And waiting.

And waiting.

They never arrived.

Chapter 7—Loco Part IV, Fort Justice—Episode 6… back along the trail from Loco… “They won’t be attacking,” a voice from behind startled them, at least all but Hiram Silverthorn, who calmly turned towards the voice.

“Greetings, Mingan Silverthorn. I am your five times-Great-Grandson, Hiram Silverthorn Jr.”

They won’t be attacking

“Greetings, Mingan Silverthorn. I am your five times-Great-Grandson, Hiram Silverthorn Jr.”

“You know me?”

“I have studied my ancestry.”

“That is good,” Gray Wolf smiled, “You have no Ojibwe name?”

“I do not. Nor has my brother and father.”

“We must correct that.”

“Our attackers, Grandfather?”

“They will bother no one again.”

“We heard no rifles.”

“There are other ways,” Gray wolf replied, and from his voice Hiram knew he would say no more.

“Pardon me,” Jay Cooper said, “I’m very happy to see this reunion, but we must get our prisoner to a safe-house near Fort Savage a soon as possible.”

“Your name must be Cooper. I should have guessed—you bear quite a resemblance—you have ancestors at the fort, Lieutenant-Colonel Phineas Cooper, your Gr-Gr-Great-Grandfather & Captain Jeremiah Cooper, your Gr-Great-Grand-Uncle.”

Sensing the danger over, the equine contingent returned and Pal (Hanska-Enapay or Tall-Brave) was greeted by Chatan (Hawk), “You are well, Tall-Brave?”

“Tall-Brave? I am ‘Pal’ and I am fine, why do you ask?”

“I am Chatan, your many-generations grandsire and the first of our line to be granted sentience. You are also known as Hanska-Enapay, ‘Tall-Brave’ in English.”

“Uh-oh,” Boomer thought, “I should remember this, I think.”

To be continued…
