We’ll never know if Joey was correct.

“We are the Silverthorns. I am Kiwidinok, and this is Hiram, my husband.”

“You have no Native name, Hiram?”

“Silverthorn is both Native and English,” Hiram replied, “In my family’s case, it comes from the Silver Thorn Bush, native to our part of Minnesota—and has become our surname.”

“What brings you to Deadwood?” William asked, “Tourists?”

“No—we are part of a posse searching for Beau Tarrant Beauregard, a fugitive from the Port of Danger Bay.”

“He was here,” Bill Williams said, “He rented all the cabins I own out along the railroad line.”

“OH MY!” Kiwi exclaimed.

Season 16—Adventure 2—A Game of Chess—Episode 3—Scene 1— Downtown Deadwood… Inside the El Gato Dancehall Saloon & Café…

“Excuse me—I must contact our friends,” Kiwi exclaimed.

“Do you wish help from the Lakota, Hiram?” William White Eagle asked.

“We would be honored.”

“Let me make a couple of calls—to round-up a war party.”

Episode 3—Scene 2—Inside the Posse’s Cabin… “Kiwi just called,” Chris announced, “It seems that Beauregard may have rented an entire resort nearby. She has acquired Native assistance.”

“You mean like the one next door?” Joey asked.

“There’s a resort next door?”

“Yep, I took a walk with Murphy and spotted the cabins from the road.”

“Well—get your guns and let’s go welcome our new neighbors.”

“Is that a good idea?” Boomer asked, “Maybe we should wait for the Silverthorns.”

“Good point. You and Joey drive next door and welcome our new neighbors—unarmed.”

“You’re joking,” Joey replied, “With a straight face.”

“Cujo erased their memories of us—remember?”

“You’re not joking—DAMMIT!” Joey replied, “C’mon, Boomer—let’s go see how effectively Cujo’s erasure worked.”

“Walk—or drive?” Boomer asked, “Driving would lead them to believe that we’re not immediate neighbors.”

“Drive—the long way.”

“In your car, no doubt.”

“No doubt.”

Episode 3—Scene 2—Outside the Motel… Joey drove away from the cabin to the west, instead from the east until the gravel road intersected with the highway—his idea being, that if anyone were in sight of the road, it would be best to appear coming from Deadwood.

We’ll never know if Joey was correct.

There was no one outside when they arrived, and only a couple of cars parked by the cabins.

There was activity in the motel lodge—Joey knocked on the door.
