“Miss Faye, I was wondering where you had wondered off to.” Kalib said. “I hope I’m not interrupting anything.” He slowly drifted closer to her. “No, I just like to visit him.” Faye said. “You know you never do know what you’re missing until you lose it.”
“After spending so much time away from my wife and my daughters I keep thinking I’m missing out on the best things, like my daughter Ellie’s fifth birthday; it makes me feel so guilty.” He shook his head. Kaib, Faye, hurry you gotta come, quick!” Arliss called out. “What’s that all about?” Faye asked. “We better get down there and quick.” Kalib made a mad dash with Faye down the hillside, and as soon as they were free from the impending shadows, they would find themselves surrounded on all sides. “What kept you away for so long, Faye, I’ve been missing you?”
“Do you know this man, Miss Faye?” Arliss asked. “I surly do. This is Josiah Jessup, my husband.” She quivered. “You wouldn’t be talkin’ ’bout your dead husband now would you?” Kalib asked. “So that’s what you been tellin’ people ’bout me?”
He moved in closer to his estranged wife. “I wouldn’t move any closer to her if I was you.” Kalib grumbled. “And who are you to tell me how close I cain stand to my wife?” Josiah argued. “Well when she was talkin’ ’bout you she was genuinely sincere when she spoke of you, and now I understand why she said you were dead, I think I would too.” Arliss said. “Besides my mysterious death, did she happen to mention the treasure she stole from me?” Josiah asked. “No, she said nothing to me about it.” Arliss said. “Actually there’s a funny story that goes along with that, your wife actually accused me of killing you, and now that we’ve met you, I would certainly be the one to volunteer.”
“Well that’s certainly too bad for you, I’ll just be taking my wife with me and we’ll ridin’ off into the morning sunset.” Josiah said. He forced Faye onto the horse and raced off into the cold darkness. Kaib, aren’t we gonna stop ’em?” Ross asked. “No, because if there’s one thing, I’ve learned ’bout men like Josiah Jessup, they always get their comeuppance, and she’s ’bout due for hers.” Kalib shook his head. “Kaib, what’s that supposed to mean?” Arliss asked. “It means, if I know my brother, he’s just in range.” Tony smiled.
