'The Legend of Eli Crow-Part Four-The Young Bucks'

Chapter 86

Has been submitted for posting on Storiesonline @


Little Tree, Texas
April 27, 1889

After riding hard most of the night and following day,
Eli and the twelve men with him arrive in Little Tree.

They make plans to catch a train all the way to El Paso,
Texas, through Albuquerque, Socorro, and Las Cruces,
New Mexico Territory.

With Martinez drawing pictures in the dirt, they make
what plans they can ahead of time, while they wait on
the train.

Before daylight the second day, they were between Las
Cruces, New Mexico Territory and El Paso, Texas.

Eli goes over their sketchy plans once more, with plans
to take a look at the hacienda before daylight, if they
could without being seen.

Eli and Moses make a big decision about their trip home,
before they even arrive in El Paso.
