Taking the Girl
“Shit! It’s the sheriff!”
Luke Cory rose high in the saddle at the shout from his partner. Sure enough, there were five riders coming hard, raising a dust cloud behind them on the dry, dirty road. Quickly he glanced at the strongbox lying in the dust where the man riding shotgun had thrown it, gauging whether he had time to dismount, blast open the box, and load the payroll into his saddlebags. But only seconds remained before the riders would reach the scene, and already he could see that they were drawing their rifles. “Shit!” he echoed. “Let’s git!” he added louder.
