“You and Chris Earp need to join my gang.”

Simpson went into his office to make several phone calls.

“What do you think, “Boomer?”

“I think—if Cujo did her job—he’ll be impressed with our résumé.”

“We’ll find-out soon enough,” Chris replied, “I feel confident right now.”

Simpson made a dozen or more calls to his “sources,” some of whom were under Cujo’s control—and received mostly confirmation of their turning to the dark-side.

Even the Silverthorn family confirmed Boomer & Chris had turned outlaw.

“They have become criminals,” Marshal Hiram Silverthorn, Jr. angrily confirmed, “I have issued arrest warrants on them.”

Simpson was convinced they’d gone rouge, “Okay—even Marshal Silverthorn is out to get you—you’re hired.”

“Orders, boss?” Chris asked.

“Go home and remain available for now,” he replied, “But—I’ll likely put a hit out on McIntyre for you to accomplish.”

“Excellent,” Boomer grinned.

“You and Chris Earp need to join my gang.”

“What’s in it for us?” Boomer asked.

“An equal cut of our profits,” Big A replied, “I need your skills to take-out Carstairs.”

“You don’t ask for much—do you?”

“Not really,” Simpson grinned, “He’s lost the confidence of his gang.”

Boomer sensed Simpson’s confidence was an act, as he paced the floor a bit—as if he were considering what he’d said.

Just as Boomer was about to speak—Chris Earp arrived.

“Am I late?” she asked.

“Am I late?”

“No Chris,” Boomer replied, “You’re right on time, Mr. Simpson’s explaining his ideas for taking-out Carstairs.”

“Welcome, Mrs. Earp,” Simpson greeted, “We’re discussing Mr. Carstairs’ demise.”

“Oh—GOODIE!” Chris exclaimed, “Perfect.”

Boomer laughed—this was SO Chris.

“Now, I know Boomer is quick with his Remington—what about…”

Chris’ Colt .45 semi-auto pistol was pointing at Simpson’s head before he could finish his sentence, “Fast enough?”


“We WILL be equal partners—right?”

“Yes, Mrs. Earp, we will,” Simpson replied—his voice betrayed his fear.

Boomer and Chris looked at each other—communicating, “Got him,” without words.

They’d worked together so long, words weren’t often necessary.

Big surprise—right?
