Previously: Meanwhile—Still in the small town of Flyspeck on the way to Dakota Territory… The Slater gang seemed unfazed, or perhaps, they didn’t hear Paulo’s question, as they continued into the town.
“Hey Gringos, my brother wants to know if we should kill you.”
“Because,” Miles Slater replied as all four drew their side arms, “It would be stupid of you to try—are you that stupid.”
“On the other hand,” Edward Slater added, “We could use a couple more guns—even if they are carried by ‘stupidos’.”
“You pay money?”
“We don’t kill you,” Miles replied, “The money? You have to earn.”
“What do you think my brother?”
“Living is a good thing, Paulo.”
Season 12—Adventure 1—Episode 8… “Git yer horses, muchachos, we have a long journey ahead of us.”
“Where are your mules?” Arturo asked, “You do not journey without mules and supplies.”
“We take what we need as we go.”
“We are going where, Senor Boss?”
“West. That’s all you need to know.”
“The prairie is large, and dry, Senor Boss, you need mules and supplies.”
“Si,” Paulo added, “You have no money for supplies and mules? We will return with such necessities.”
“You two have money?”
“No—it is not needed,” Paulo replied as the brothers walked away.
Meanwhile—Back at the Danger Bay Railroad Station… Boomer and Big Mac were showing James and Brave Hawk the stable car.
“Where are our horses?” Black Hawk Silverthorn was—to say the least—perplexed, “I saw them taken into this car—and now they are gone.”
Big Mac grinned, “Ah—there are other features of this car which you should be aware of. Boomer, slide the door open, please.”
“What kind of magic is this?” Black Hawk was stunned by what he saw.
“Oh this is but a sample of the ‘magic’ my friends from the future, can make,” James explained, “I have come to expect nearly anything from them.”
“Just wait until you see your personal quarters in the next car.”
“Oh, Boomer,” James grinned, “We have no need of such quarters—we will sleep here.”
“It rains here often—as you may have noticed, it is quite verdant here,” Mac said, “Perhaps you’d like some shelter?”
Black Hawk was a quick study, not unlike his older brother, “Yes, perfect!”
This, of course, negated the need for the second “Parlor Car,” so it was disconnected and the Adventure Train pulled slowly out of the Danger Bay railroad station.
And into danger…
