Previously: From the left, the irregular cavalry commanded by Carl McIntyre and consisting of the Danger Bay time travelers and James Silverthorn’s native horsemen arrived.
From the right, Colonel Cooper’s command arrived.
They simultaneously charged the now panicking outlaws and showed no mercy until they dropped their fire arms and surrendered.
At that point, McIntyre’s cavalry rode into the town of Fort Justice to find and arrest Lacy Dalton.
The Battle for Fort Justice
Lacy and Christine Dalton were many things—but they were not fools. As soon as they heard the cannons fire, they mounted their horses and along with their closest comrades—rode out of town.
A thorough search was made in every possible direction they might have gone—even with the help of Flutters and the dog-people—they were not found.
They WILL cause trouble—AGAIN!
Season 12—Adventure 4—2015 Port of Danger Bay—Episode 1… Inside the Tardis Tavern… The very tired time travelers returned, slightly disoriented—their thoughts still on the elusive Daltons, “How did they escape? Not just us, but our dog and bird people, as well.”
“How did they escape? Not just us, but our dog and bird people, as well.”
“I don’t know, Sarah,” Ralph replied, “I can’t figure it out either.”
“I hate to say this—but we screwed-up,” Mac rumbled, “We should have reckoned they were in the town—not leading their troops.”
“No sense dwelling on it now,” Boomer said, “I definitely require Nap O’Clock more than anything else—and so, I suspect, does Daisy. See you all later.”
“Party-pooper,” Linda cracked-wise, “C’mon Ralph—there must be some excitement somewhere in Danger Bay.”
“Does this mean I don’t have to open the bar?”
“No,” Merle McIntyre grinned, “A brown ale seems just about right, just about now.”
“Aye, Paul—Ale on the house!” McDermid grinned.
“Perhaps we’ll stay, Linda,” Ralph did want to unwind a bit from his stint in command, “I’m sure Archie must have some appealing wine for you.”
He did—and they remained.
“Oh—that wine looks delightful,” Sarah grinned, “Archie?”
“Aye, lass, coming right up.”
“This wine is delightful—more please.”
“Ralph—this is Danger Bay.”
“Yes dear—I forget that sometimes. Archie, a refill please.”
“RALPH!” Linda exclaimed.
It felt good for all to unwind from their adventure.
There were, however, events in motion that would change that “feel good” for certain—and perhaps alter life in the Port of Danger Bay, Minnesota, forever.
But for now, GENTLE READER, we’ll bask in the glow of their collective safe return from the past.
Just for now…
