Anne pulled the mattress from Cord’s bed to the floor, thinking to drag it to the main room, close to the stove, but the cumbersome thing wedged itself between the bed and the wall. She decided not to waste time or strength trying to move it. Dragging Cord into the bedroom and onto the mattress was not as hard, but Anne collapsed in relief beside him when it was done. A faint gurgling sound made her sit up, pull herself together, and listen intently. Cord’s head was straight now, not bent toward his shoulder as it was in the yard and when she dragged him.

One frantic glance showed Samuels, O’Brien, and both of the Meeks brothers, dismounting and tying their horses in front of the main barn. Anne wrenched the rifle down from the wall, picked up a box of shells and the gunbelt and pistol from the shelf underneath and ran to the bedroom, shaking Cord awake by the arm with no regard for his feelings. “Load one for me. Load one, and show me how to shoot it. They’re back. ” She was almost incoherent with fear, and he didn’t even ask who was back. “They are loaded.

Assuming your folks don’t catch you and drag you home, if you go into Grenerton with only twenty dollars, you’ll be lucky to get to Chicago. If your aunt won’t help, you’ll end up whoring. You’re pretty enough, but you’re not young enough. ” Never in her life had anyone spoken to her like that! “I will not! ” “You think you could get hungry enough to marry somebody you hate, but not hungry enough to sell yourself to strangers? ” That was exactly what she thought, but she wasn’t about to say so now.
