Previously: “You’ll accompany me to the bank Edward. We’ll hint that we are engaged and looking to settle somewhere, in fact we may take a picnic lunch and actually ride to a piece of land to make it look even more legitimate.”
Paulo and Miles joined them just then and reported. “Yes Miss Lacy the bank has a back door as does the other Saloon and the General Store.”
“Good that should make it easy for us to have the horses in back to make a quick getaway. Miles—take all the horses over to the livery where we will leave them to get good and rested, and if there is a blacksmith their ask him to check all the horses hooves.”
Miles downed his drink and went to do as he was asked.
The bartender laid four keys on the bar, “Madam, your rooms are ready and I have just heard from Mr. Thurman. He can meet with you tomorrow morning at 11:00. The large room is at the way end of the corridor.”
“Perfect, thank you kindly for your help, I would like bath water in about two hours if I could,” Lacy replied, “We would like another round here please.”
Season 12—Adventure 3—Siege of Fort Justice—Episode 7… Plans were in place; Miles had the horses behind the bank. They were well rested and ready to run.
Lacy, Edward, and Paulo walked toward the bank. Tension was high as it always was before a job. It was late afternoon and most of the bank’s business had been concluded.
Edward was thinking back on the amazing night he had spent in Lacy’s room. The bathtub in there was huge and filled with hot water. They both could fit in it and spent a lot of time washing each other. When the water had cooled their bodies had not and well he was a happy man and there was no tension in the lower part of his body.
The meeting with Mr. Thurman at the bank had gone well and it raised no red flags. Mr. Thurman had been thrilled at the thought of selling some property.
They walked in the bank and Mr. Thurman had a big grin on his face as he walked toward the three. Edward reached out and swung Mr. Thurman around pulling his gun and holding it to his head.
Lacy said, “Listen close as I am going to only say this once. One of you will fill my partner’s bag up with all monies behind the counter. The other one will open the door and accompany me to the safe and fill this bag. Do it now and no one will get hurt.”
The door opened all went through it but the cashier said, “Only Mr. Thurman knows the combination.”
“No problem,” Lacy replied, “Mr. Thurman will be most helpful.”
She motioned for Edward to take him back to the safe.
It was over quickly, three bags filled the bank employees flat on the ground hands behind their back.
The Dalton gang went quickly out the back door and rode out-of-town.
