Previously: The bodies buried, the wagon driver was headed back to Forest City, when he saw a bunch of riders approaching. Those riders were—of course, our Rootin’-Tootin’ Posse.
They had ridden straight through Forest City as they had no business there.
The driver tipped his hat as they passed on his way back to Forest City.
The dog-people were distracted as they were escorting their humans by the scent of death. That scent led them to a freshly covered mass gravesite.
“Humans are buried here—very recently,” Cleo, after sniffing the dirt, declared, “We must tell the humans!”
Season 14—Adventure 6—PIONEER DANGER BAY—Episode 8—Scene 1… On the road to Moosehead City… The dogs quickly caught-up to their humans and reported what they found.
After listening to what the dogs had to say, Linda spoke-up, “We can’t change what happened back there—I think we need to press-on to Moosehead City.”
“—I think we need to press-on to Moosehead City”
“Exactly,” Chris agreed, “It’s time to bring some justice back! Lock & LOAD!”
“Dog-people,” Cooper ordered, “Get to Moosehead City as fast as you can! Ghost-capable dogs scout the town, the rest cover the roads—but stay out of sight. FLUTTERS—I know you’re nearby…”
And—just like THAT—Flutters appeared, “Master said you’d need me.”
“You’re our messenger—report back what you and the dogs find. We’ll remain just outside of town.”
Episode 8—Scene 2… Moosehead City… At the Moosehead Saloon… James MacLeish, Jason Jones, Henry Carlson, brothers Rufe & Ade McLintock, Oliver Johnson, Clive Wilson, Adolphus O’Hare, and Eric Samuels were once again confronted by gunslinger wannabes.
They were outnumbered three to one, and once again the gunfight lasted only seconds—of the eighteen who challenged them nine were dead, and nine escaped out the back door.
They were outnumbered three to one.
Those nine were survivors—in fact they wanted no part of the gunfight and as the trash-talk started, they edged their way towards escape.
After the gunfight, they approached MacLeish, “We’d like to join you fellas.”
“You’re the fellas who left?” Carlson asked.
“Yup,” Clem Todd replied, “We came here to do a job, not to get into a fight with people over nothing.”
“Welcome aboard, gentlemen,” MacLeish grinned, “We’re gonna need your guns.”
There were now eighteen accomplished gunfighters awaiting Sarah Cooper and company.
