“What about our Native allies?”

The Return of the SEVEN Banner ©JBoardmanPREVIOUSLY: Colonel Milton Bell addressed his men, “We move-out in ten days, gentlemen, I expect every one of you to be prepared by then. Those assigned to Major Clemson will march around Moosehead County and position yourselves to attack Moosehead City.

Those assigned to Major Carruthers will march to a position south of Moosehead County. Both forces will avoid the main roads and march silently at night.

Any questions?”

Mac called the meeting to order, “As we have only four ghost-critters, I want Boomer to team-up with AJ when he arrives, Joey to team-up with Debra, Linda to team-up with Wyatt, and Chris with me to respond where we’re needed.”

“Flutters will serve as our communications pigeon.”

“THAT ought-to work,” Boomer cracked-wise, “He is SO dependable!”

Flutters had no response—he misconstrued Boomer’s comment as a compliment.

“My bad,” Mac rumbled, “I clean-forgot about him—he’ll join Chris and myself as back-up.”

As if on cue—AJ and Carstairs walked-in, “We’re back—thanks to the Adventure Train.”

“Excellent!” Mac exclaimed, “You’re with me, Mr. Carstairs, and AJ with your old man.”

AJ and Carstairs arrived at the HQ ©JBoardman“Excellent!”

“What about our Native allies?” Chris asked.

“They will be our strike-force,” Mac replied, “They have more troops and the horse-guns.”

James Silverthorn joined the meeting ©JBoardman“I’m sorry that I’m late to the party—”

“No problem, Jimmy,” Mac rumbled, “How many warriors?”

“How many guns?”

“With the Moosehead County Militia, two horse-guns, and about ­fifteen men.”

“About?”

“It varies—depending upon who is available.”

AVAILABLE?” Mac thundered.

“Fifteen are available,” Silverthorn replied, “That’s all of them.”

“That will have to do,” Mac sighed.

This gave the defenders a little breathing-room.

Just a little.
