PREVIOUSLY: “Are you sure this is a good idea?” Linda asked, “We’re badly outnumbered.”
“Yup,” Chis Earp replied, “That makes interesting.”
Boomer took a puff off his pipe and added, “What you should know is that Jimmy Silverthorn and his warriors are covering our flank in the forest.”
“That ought to even the odds,” Wyatt observed, “Or put them in our favor.”
“Clearly in our favor,” Ralph Halvorson added.
“Hi-ho—hi-ho, it’s down the road we go,” Boomer sang—off-key.
“STOP!” Linda exclaimed, “Just STOP!”
Boomer ignored his cousin, “Hi-ho—hi-ho, it’s down the road we go, hi-ho-o-o-o-o-o-o!”
Season 18—Adventure 2—Return to Danger Bay—Episode 7… Scene 1… At the Renegade Natives’ Campsite… “So—now we begin our planning,” Running Bear said.
“So—now we begin our planning…”
“Oh—we are all-ears,” Carstairs replied, Speak oh great chief.”
“Sarcasm, my good fellow, accomplishes nothing but show your ignorance.”
All Carstairs could manage as a retort was a scowl.
“We’ll split into two forces,” Running Bear began, “Mixing warriors with Carstairs’ bunch, and then set-up ambushes.”
“O great leader,” Carstairs asked, “Where, exactly?”
“You leave that to my people—you are just too stupid to be trusted.”
Wisely—Carstairs did not reply.
“Blue-Dog—I want you to scout the road to our West and set-up your ambush.”
“Yes, Running Bear—I’ll select my people now.”
Running Bear selected five more groups and sent them out, “I daresay He-Who-Runs-With-Wolves, this has been most enjoyable.”
“Irritating Carstairs and his men IS great sport,” He-Who-Runs-With-Wolves replied.
“Soon enough, my friend,” Running Bear laughed, “Mr. Carstairs irritation will turn into panic—or worse.”
“I dare-say, old friend,” He-Who-Runs-With-Wolves replied, “It should be worse!”
“As do I,” Running Bear replied, “I think you should meet with our friends.”
“I’ll leave now.”
Episode 7… Scene 2… On the road outside Danger Bay… “Greetings Andrew Silverthorn,” He-Who-Runs-With-Wolves grinned, “It has been too long since we’ve spoken.”
“Greetings Andrew Silverthorn…”
“Greeting to you, He-Who-Runs-With-Wolves,” Andy Silverthorn replied, “I expect Running Bear is arranging ambushes.”
“Yes—I have a map showing where.”
The two friends studied the map to see where the best locations were for combating the ambushes without causing casualties to their Native allies.
And too—to avoid the more dangerous locations.
