ALONG CAME A SPIDER
by Cal

---oooOOOooo---

Wrong Train to Brimstone – Missing scene
by Cal

---oooOOOooo---

Merdot MacDuff stood and scratched his head watching the two young men leave his livery yard.  Something about the way their eyes had hardened to dangerous flint, had unsettled him.
 
The dark one had said,


“…you’re sure gonna die a rich man MacDuff…”


And the fairer one had growled,


“…if you live long enough.”

Heyes sat with his back to the wall where he could see all the comings and goings from under the brim of his hat.  To the casual observer, he appeared to be sleeping.  When Kid Curry entered the stage waiting room, he knew better.
