“Wait-up!”

Return to Danger Bay Banner ©Jack BoardmanPREVIOUSLY: “But he died according to Jimmy Silverthorn.”

“A twin, perhaps?”

 “Let’s amble over and strike-up a conversation,” Boomer suggested.

“Good idea.”

“Howdy stranger, I’m called Boomer,” Boomer said, “You look a lot like an old friend of mine.”

“Really?” the stranger replied, “Who might that be?”

“AJ Carstairs.”

“He’s my evil twin—I’m Josh Carstairs.”

“We know your brother William as well,” Chris said with a truly wicked grin.

“Do you work for him?” Carstairs asked.

“No, sir,” Boomer replied, “We’re looking for him—so we can arrest him—he killed your twin.”

“No great loss,” He replied, “And good luck finding Bill.”

Unfortunately—Sarah McCoy overheard their conversation.

Season 18—Adventure 2—Return to Danger Bay—Episode 10… Scene 1… Sarah McCoy returned to Carstairs’ cabin… “The Posse is in Moosehead City!”

“The Posse is in Moosehead City!”

“And you know this for certain, Sarah?” Carstairs asked.

“Yes, Bill,” she replied, “Not only that—Josh is in town.”

“My brother, Josh?”

“Yes.”

Carstairs had to think about that news—it would be good to kill Josh—but at what cost to his operations? And too, what about this so-called posse—he really wanted to eliminate them.

He reached a conclusion, “Let’s ride to Moosehead City—get everyone together!”

“Right away, Boss.”

They rode slowly—deliberately into town.

At the same time Chris Earp and Captain Boomer rode out of town.

Carstairs did not recognize them.

Chris and Boomer recognized Carstairs, “Oh—I love this.”

“Me too, Chris,” Boomer chuckled, “I am, however worried about Josh Carstairs.”

Carstairs and his gang dismounted and went into the Moosehead Saloon, “Barkeep, have you seen any members of the posse in here?” Carstairs asked.

“No,” Philander Johnson, the bartender replied, “No one claiming to be a posse, anyway.”

“How about anyone by the last name, Carstairs?”

“Oh—you must mean Josh?”

“Yes, he’s my brother.”

“He left out the back door about ten minutes ago.”

“Thank you,” Carstairs grinned, “We’ll be back after we find him.”

Episode 10… Scene 3… Almost to the Moosehead City Limits… “Hey, you two,” Josh Carstairs said as he approached Chris and Boomer, “Wait-up!”

“Wait-up!”

“Ah, Mr. Carstairs—Josh, isn’t that your name?” Chris asked.

“How did you know that?”

“You’re AJ Carstairs twin,” Boomer replied, “AJ was killed by your brother William.”

“I am,” Are you members of an outfit called the Posse?”

“We are,” Chris replied, “Ride with us?”

“Yes,” he replied.
