John, the robber, began whispering in his oily voice.
“I found you, Red. It wasn’t that hard. Most people remember a red-haired woman, especially one that causes as much trouble as you.”
She wanted to protest the charge, but even in what she hoped was a dream, she knew to keep her mouth shut. The man kept talking, not in need of a response. Perhaps, he was having a long conversation with himself.
“I heard talk you cozied up to the marshal. You wouldn’t have been foolish enough to talk about what you saw, now would you?”
The words touched her ear, causing a shudder of distaste. The threat contained in the words was explicit. She fidgeted in her seat, trying to fake sleep while cringing away from the man. She needed to let the robber know she hadn’t said anything. Oh, she had, but he didn’t have to know.
With her eyes still closed, she managed to murmur the words as if in a drowsy half-sleep. “Not foolish, did not trust marshal.” The words reflected the truth to a degree. She did not trust Marshal Colt Shepard with her heart. Nor was she stupid enough to tell an outlaw something that might get her killed.
She wanted to break free of John’s oily voice and smelly breath. Could this be a dream, a bad one? Did dreamers know when they were dreaming? The cold steel of a gun snout pushed into her rib cage obliterated the dream theory. It also shot her eyelids up. Beady dead eyes looked into hers, proving a disagreeable reality.
Townsend would not believe her luck. Instead, he‘d tease her about knocking over a wagon of mirrors after he dispatched the villain. No Townsend, no Colt, no one to come to her defense.
