Comrades at Arms - Next Generation

Chapter One

Rudi Steinhart's first recollections of life as a child were when, at the age of three, he fell off the horse that the ranch manager and his father's trusted friend Pedro Cisneros, had been leading around the corral. He could clearly remember tipping over the side of his saddle and falling quietly into the dust and horse droppings, lying there unhurt and only a little shaken up. Pedro became aware of the mishap right away and ran toward him with a look of concern on his weather-beaten face but, like the big hero in the movies, as he recalled it later in life, Rudi quickly stood up and began to dust himself off as though nothing had happened. Pedro stopped in mid stride and, with a big smile, turned around to bring the horse back to Rudi who, as he was being helped back onto the horse, hoped that Pedro would not notice the wince on his face as his sore posterior hit the hard saddle. Neither ever mentioned the incident, but Rudi always felt that it served to create a very special bond between them.
