Chapter 90

Has been submitted for posting on Storiesonline @:


Las Cruces
New Mexico Territory
May 4, 1889

Eli and his friends have the herd bedded down safely
on the outskirts of Las Cruces. They started loading
cattle cars as soon as they drove the first cattle into
the pens, hoping to have three trainloads leave out
and run all night toward Albuquerque then on to Little

Eli heads to the hotel to settle their due bill from the
day before.

He meets with the owner of the hotel, and the man
offers Eli a proposition he first scoffs at, then turns
around and accepts after the man sweetens the pot.
