Horn stiffened. There was no mistaking the deadly threat of the rifle and the mans menacing manner. Horns face was pale, but his eyes were unwavering as they looked into those that glared out at him through the aperture in the door. Guilt and fearMoreHorn stiffened. There was no mistaking the deadly threat of the rifle and the mans menacing manner. Horns face was pale, but his eyes were unwavering as they looked into those that glared out at him through the aperture in the door.

Guilt and fear were the emotions that had driven Brewster to this rather hysterical threat. Horn resisted an impulse to laugh, though he felt a pulse of grim humor shoot through him. To his knowledge?excepting Brewsters prediction to rustle cattle?the man was harmless. He never had been known to draw a gun, even in self-defense, and Horn was convinced that there was not sufficient provocation for him to break one of the rules that had governed him until now.

Brewster might be goaded, or frightened, into using the rifle, but Horn had no intention of goading or frightening him. In fact, being aware of the reason for Brewsters belligerence, he had no intention of acquainting the man with the knowledge of what had happened the night before. At least, not at this instant. Horns lips wore a shadowy smile. I reckon you dont know me, Brewster? he said. I know you mighty well, Horn, snapped Brewster- you heard me mention your name! Then youve got a new way of greeting your friends, eh?with a rifle. Well, put it down and open the door.

There?s, some things I want to say to you. What about? asked Brewster, suspiciously. Overwhelming every other thought in his mind was the conviction that Smith and Rogers had apprised Horn of what had happened the night before, and that Horn had come to capture him, single-handed.

About Bonnie. The wild gleam in Brewsters eyes began to dull. However, he was still suspicious. You seen any of your men this mornin?Smith or Rogers? he asked. Rogers and Smith went to town last night. I reckon they didnt get back yet. Whats Rogers and Smith got to do with me visiting you? Nothin. There was relief in Brewsters voice. The muzzle of the rifle wavered- the weapon was withdrawn and the slide closed. Then the door slowly opened, and Brewster appeared in it, a six-shooter in hand.

If youre foolin me, Tyler Horn, Ill sure bore you a-plenty! he threatened. Shucks! Horn advanced to the door, ignoring the heavy pistol, which was shoved close to his body as he walked into the cabin, Brewster retreating before him. Brewster, youre losing whatever sense you had, said Horn as he halted near the center of the big room. There were three rooms, their doors opening from the one in which Horn and Brewster stood. Meanin what?

demanded Brewster, nervously fingering the six-shooter. It was clear that Brewster was impressed with the repressed force that he could see in Horn- with the slumbering energy that Horns lithe, sinewy body suggested- with the mans complete lack of fear and with the cold confidence that swam in his steady eyes. Brewster did not know at this minute whether or not he had meant to shoot Horn.

He believed that if Horn had told him he had come to take him for blotting out the Circle H brand in the arroyo the preceding night he would have killed Horn. But he was not sure. Something about Horn made the thought of shooting him, seem ridiculous.

It would take a lot of provocation for any man to kill Horn, for something about Horn seemed to hint that it couldnt be done. Meaning that you are old enough to know that you cant keep on rustling my cattle without getting in trouble. Ah! exclaimed Brewster, his breath hissing through his teeth as he sucked it in with a gasp- you sneaked on me, damn you! He threw the muzzle of the pistol up, his body stiffening, his eyes glittering with the malignance that had been in them when he had been looking out at Horn through the aperture in the door.

You know about that deal, an youve come for me.
