Re: One Weapon, One Partner, One Theme Song

Smith and Wesson 686+ .357 http://cdn.gun-tests.com/media/newspics/SMITH_WESSON_14_20-1_1.jpg Nothing like a seven-shot six shooter. Debra from Diary of the Dead (don't know why.

Re: Damned Yankees

There is, of course, more to the story of Everett Church, but that story is long. This much, however, should be said. Everett retired from the United States Marshals in 1905 after forty years of service. He and Mary simply took to their modest ranch house to live out their elder years, though they r...

Re: Damned Yankees

And they did find a place that was nothing like Illinois or Virginia. The place they stopped was the territory of Arizona, which seemed far enough west to start over. Everett did take Anderson up on his suggestion, and he offered his services to the U.S. Marshal of Arizona, who, upon receiving a sug...

Re: Damned Yankees

Indeed, Everett did not wait a second longer than was needed. In fact, it was even quicker than he himself had predicted. Anderson, Alex, and the others had only returned the day before, but now Everett and Mary were standing at the Springfield train station, their bags packed, Everett’s rifle and r...

Re: Damned Yankees

It was not until the next day that Anderson and the others returned, and when they arrived, Everett was sitting by the telegraph station, his world in something of a haze, while Mary was asleep in his quarters again, having not once gone back to her own. Jack was still trying to clean Everett’s sabe...

Re: Damned Yankees

Everett awoke with a shriek, one that could split the ears of a deaf man. He had been lying down, but he went bolt upright, his hand slapping his waist, looking for a revolver that was not there. His hand found only the white fabric of a simple nightshirt. Unable to focus on his surroundings, his ha...

Re: Damned Yankees

They dismounted and the three of them stepped as cautiously as possible around the incredible number of dead bodies, trying as well to miss their severed heads with faces frozen in death. They got close enough to be heard, but kept a wise distance. Standing in front of Everett, Anderson, Indian Kidd...

Re: Damned Yankees

It was about four hours after Everett had drawn his sword in the middle of Hamilton Street in Castle, Illinois, that the sound of thundering hooves arrived in town, riding at great speed with much fear and desperation driving them forward like whips at their backs. Anderson was in the lead, with Ind...

Re: Damned Yankees

Even as the men inside the Town Hall building, their faces pressed against the windows, could hear that terrible sound of hungry death coming closer, almost in sight, Everett did not step off the porch until he had sung the whole song, and he sang it in no hurry. It was as though he had all the time...

Re: Damned Yankees

Everett could not look back for even a second more. He virtually charged outside and shut the doors behind him, unable to think about what now lay ahead if he saw her face or heard her voice. He was now outside, in their lair. It was himself and the dead. The living now were, as far as he was concer...

Re: Damned Yankees

The old man retired upstairs, not looking back down, and feeling far less relief than the young man who had gone up before him. Everett unlocked and opened the front doors, heard and saw no sign of the approaching dead, and placed the shotgun and rifle by the stairs. He then turned around and locked...

Re: Damned Yankees

Everett did not bother waiting for anyone to assist him. He pulled the doors closed and locked them, looking out the windows every few seconds, straining his eyes and ears for any sign of their approach, as did Mary. But the more he looked through the windows, the more he realized the importance of ...

Re: Damned Yankees

It would be an exaggeration to suggest that the entire room, that being the lobby of the Town Hall building, fell into a stunned silence after Everett pinned on his badge and identified himself as a federal lawman. In fact, Chief Constable Bingham was hardly surprised. After Everett took command of ...

Re: Damned Yankees

Everett, being the only marshal of Anderson’s command in Castle, had no choice but to leave Chief Constable Bingham and his constables, as well as any men seen fit to assist him, to their duties, though he feared leaving such matters in the hands of those who had not experienced what was coming. He ...

Re: Damned Yankees

Everett, seemingly without urgency, rode back to the Mayor and the slightly smaller crowd before him. Chief Constable Bingham however, ran at full speed, his empty Colt still in his hand. Everett saw out of the corner of his eye that Mary was now running towards the scene, a Remington pocket revolve...

Re: Damned Yankees

For several minutes, Everett simply sat on Lancer and looked at the stilled bodies before him, each sent back to the earth where they belonged, delivered by a single shot to the head. He stared in wonder at his own life and how intertwined was his own life with the death of others. He had been consu...

Re: Damned Yankees

“But Mister…” replied the terrified yet still surprised young man. “Go get your mother and sister. Your father has told you what to do, now do it.” The young man ran hard and fast to the house, disappearing through the front door. Everett rode up behind the father, and it was, indeed, a Sharps he wa...

Re: Damned Yankees

Everett rode out, fully armed, into the morning towards the East road, the light of the rising sun in his eyes. He had been out as far as the old Fletcher Farm, but he had never been to the Price Farm, and he did not feel as though it would be wise to ask any of the locals about its location. All he...

Re: Damned Yankees

After returning to the cottage and skipping their planned meal at The Eating Room, Everett and Mary quickly closed the door behind them, with Everett even going so far as to bolt it. He walked quickly to the corner of the room where he kept his Winchester rifle, which he verified was loaded. He also...

Re: Damned Yankees

From where Everett was, mounted still on Lancer, little Millicent Singer looked terrified, but unharmed. A minute or so after their return, the girl’s parents, and what appeared to be a brother older by two or three years, came running out of the Town Hall building. They took their shaking daughter ...

By the way, starting on Thanksgiving morning, I will be out of town, and won't return until Saturday evening.

Re: Damned Yankees

“Mary,” Everett replied, not particularly caring for the fact that she wanted to ride with him into what might be harm’s way but admiring her sand just the same, “If you want to ride out when we look for the girl, you need to be able to see to your safety. If things go badly, and they might, I can’t...
