Previously: “Now where to?”
“I think, Daisy, we’re as Liam might say, ‘on the lam’.”
“Where?” Flutters asked.
“How ‘bout ‘when’?” Boomer grinned, “But first—we visit the new Eagle Point Casino.”
“Is that wise, O un-feathered one?”
“No—but those guys are between us and home.”
Meanwhile—the Coopers were visiting the McIntyres at the Cabin-on-the-Rock… “It has been over a month and we’re still here—I guess Boomer’s computer survived,” Sarah said, “I expect things will settle-down for a while.”
“This IS Danger Bay,” Jay grinned, “Things never really settle down.”
Kiwi heard a knock on the door upstairs—and was stunned by who was at the door…
Adventure Nine—Silverthorn’s—Episode Three… “OMIGOSH!” Kiwi exclaimed.
“Hello,” the taller-even-than-Mac-but-looked-just-like-him-man rumbled, “My name is Merle McIntyre.”
“Mac never mentioned a twin,” Kiwi replied, and then thought to herself, “I wonder if this has anything to do with IRL Boomer’s cold computer?”
“I reckon that’s because Mom liked me best,” he laughed.
“Carl? I’d like to introduce you to Merle McIntyre,” Kiwi arrived with a large man—her introduction met with several dropping jaws—jaws which dropped even more when she added, “Your twin brother.”
All—except for Big Mac, “You never call—you never write—now—you drag your sorry-ass into my life?”
“Yep,” Merle boomed as the two hugged, “It’s been far too long!”
Meanwhile—in Forest City… Gypsy wants to be more involved in the Casino, and she asks Liam how she can help—because she has no intention of being a stay-at-home wife!
Hiram, Sam, Gypsy & Liam discussed opportunities and after Liam mentions she is gifted with numbers. After consulting Kiwi, they decided to offer Gypsy a management position.
Kiwi agreed to show Gypsy how she and Camille Farkleberry run Silverthorn-Farkleberry Enterprises, more precisely, Silverthorn’s Café and Farklberry’s Star Service and its franchise stations—so she could, in fact, become the Casino’s “Business Manager” reporting directly to Hiram, Sr.
About 15 minutes later—Boomer, Daisy and Flutters arrived… Boomer parked Strider out of sight behind the Casino—the three of them entered through the back door—quickly making their way upstairs to the security center.
Boomer, Daisy & Flutters found Black Cloud in his office, with Reservation-Marshal Silverthorn.
“You three here to gamble?” Hiram, Jr. quipped with a wide smile.
“No Hy, we’re not,” Boomer replied, “It seems FBI Special Agent Dom Slater REALLY wants to pay us back for, as he called it, ‘skating,’ after the shoot-out in Stanleyville—and he’s involved the Bureau of Indian Affairs.”
“There were four of them, People-Dog Hiram,” Daisy added, “And we covered them with dust when we escaped!”
“Dom Slater is trouble,” Black Cloud frowned, “He’s quite vindictive and not one to cross. Precisely why I like dealing with him.”
“The problem will be with the BIA,” Hy concluded, “They don’t much like our way of doing things here.”
