*Apple returns with the water and alcohol. She stops dead in her tracks at the sight of the sisters, then regains her senses.*

Apple:"Jim, here, what can I do to help? Actually, you and Pet can take care of her for a minute, i have to continue on with my ruse as Katie's wedding planner. I will return as soon as I can."

Apple rushes out to Katies room to help her prepare for the evening's activities. She makes a stop in her room and retrieves Bess's derringer, makes sure she has plenty of ammunition and a few explosives. Apple checks her own aresenal, her knife, her second gun under her petticoats, and her own secrets. She then continues on to the bride.

Pidge is helping Bess with last minute preparations, and Apple joins her, except that her preparations are for a fight, not a wedding ceremony.


Apple:"You do not have to do this Bess," she says quietly. "What if we get Katie dressed for her wedding? She could really marry her love, and you can take down this uncle of yours." Jim and Pet had filled her in quickly when she returned with the supplies for cleaning Kit's wounds.

Pidge and Apple helped Bess finish dressing. They both gave all the requirements of old, new , borrowed and blue.

Apple'I heard Jim took your gun away so here's another one. It was a derringer with a blue garter.'
Pidge'This is borrowed hankie...soaked in choloform.'
Bess'Something old is this, my mom's pearl necklace.'
Apple'And this package says it your something new.'
Bess carefully opened it and found some pearl earrings. The note read "To my beautiful future wife, signed Jack"
Bess put them on. Pidge and Apple stuck their heads out the door to signal Sam Cumberland the bride was ready.

Artie appeared to escort Pidge and Apple to their seats.
Sam held his arm out to Bess.
Sam'This is it, Katie.'
Bess/Katie smiled and thought 'Yes its it for you'
And proceeded to walk down the aisle.

Artie overheard Apple suggesting to Bess to put the real Katie there. He quietly explained to her not yet not yet. That it would have to be Bess to follow through with the ceremony.

*Apple notices Captain Wade in the perifery of guests, as well as Jeremy. 'Good we will need them," she thinks to herself. She gives Arte their secret signal to let him know about the backup, and he acknowledges her.*

Bess and Sam made it up the aisle and Jack took Bess's hand. Her cousin was so lucky. In love with a nice normal man who thought the world of her. The thought brought tears to Bess's eyes. Jack looked at her and smiled thinking she was crying tears of joy.

Bess and Jack said their vows with Sam Cumberland smiling like the cat that had eaten the canary. Now with this union, he would be able to own all of North America as well as South America.

Artie lay Kit down on the bed and removed Jim's jacket, they could see the bandages needed to be changed. Jim looked and saw Apple come in with a water Basin and a bottle. He turned when he heard the ajoining door open and took another look, Mary looked identical to Kit, But he knew Bess and Kit were not related this case was getting creeper by the minute.

As Artie left he gave Pet a hug and started to walk back down to the wedding and he turned back to the room and motioned for Jim.

"Jim, this is going to sound odd but doesn't she remind you of the Dr. Montgomery during the war, I wonder if he was her brother."

"No brother Artie, she is the Dr."

Artie shook his head "Ok you have some explaining todo after this."

"I will, enjoy the nuptuals" the last was said in a low tone.

Pet shook Kit gentle and she opened her eyes "Pet?"

"yes, Kit you have some wounds what do we need to do?"

"use alchoal to clean and disenfect them, it will hurt but don't worry" she whispered the last bit as she was falling asleep again.

Artie, "Come one step closer and I'll misspell your name!"

*Apple is growing restless. They need to move, what is Bess planning? She catches the eye of her husband, he smiles at her. Why is she doing this, she wonders...keep focused, think about that later.*

Bess took Jack to the side before the guests started coming out.
Bess'There is something I need to tell you.'
Jack looked at her and Bess could see why Katie loved him so much.
Jack'What is it my love?'
Bess took him by the hand and lead him to the room where the real Katie was.
Jack'What is going on?'
Katie ran up hugging and kissing Jack.
Katie'I've missed you so.'
Jack'I just married you, that one.' He pointed to Bess.
Bess took the rings off her hand and gave them to Katie.
Bess'No, you really married her, thats what all the documents state, her father is planning on killing both of you tonight for all the control of the mines. Both of you go with this man Jeremey and he'll get you out of here safely. No we're going to care of your father.'
Katie'He's not my real father and never was.'
Bess hugged her cousin.
Bess'Go put that identical dress on and get out of here, we've got work to do. Jack I'm sorry I'm agent Bess Moore from the US Secret Service. We are all agents trying to get rid of this fool Sam.'
Jack'Thank you for saving our lives.'
Bess'Now go!' She went into the next room to check on Kit before Sam Cumberland got his.

Pet had finished bandaging Kit's back and she was finally sleeping soundly whatever the Dr had given her finally wore off. Mary left the Katie and Jack she would return after her father was taken care of.

Bess "How is Kit?"

Jim "She will be fine no thanks to Charles and Sam"

Bess "Where is Charles?"

Jim Smiled "He wont be bothering anyone else. Shall we get Sam?"

*Apple notices that Artemus has signaled her, and she goes to his side.*

Artemus:"Mrs. Hamilton, so nice to see you again so soon...(whispers)Go get my darling wife, I don't have any idea which chemicals are where." he smiles at a passerby. "I see that Mr. Hamilton is in attendance, I must go say hello, excuse me, my dear."

Apple makes a hasty exit and has to stop herself from running full speed to Katies room. She notices a flash of white from a familiar gown, but she continues to the room. She finds Pet and relays Arte's message to his wife.

Apple:"Pet, your husband requires your assistance with the wedding gifts."

Pet:"Oh shoot, I forgot to tell him how those chemicals work...more fun for me!" She quickly leaves with Apple trying to keep her pace.

Jim is concerned, and asks Jeremy to stay behind and watch over Kit.

Jim:"Jeremy, I need to be in on this, can you...?" Jeremy is already nodding his head.

Jeremy:"Go James, go. Of course I will handle this situation.

Pet ran down stairs, ignoring the ladies staring at her very unladylike behavoir, straight to her husband who was wating in the reception room by the presents.

"Artie, sweetheart NOT that one!" Pet said as he picked up a gift and tipped it. Artie raised an eyebrow at his wife.

"Gently remove the wrapping and look inside the vase you'll find CAREFULLY. I put the blue vial in that one."

"You put the...in THERE? Oh sweetheart we really need to have that talk." Artie tsked her.


"Apple we'll need the Capt. for this can you go get him please?"

While Apple goes to get the Capt. Pet decides she needs to talk to Artie.

"Sweetheart, when our part in this is done I need to have a talk with you." She puts her hand on his back and gently rubs it as he continues his search through the packages.

"Sure, sweetie, anything you say," Pet can tell he's not really paying attention.

Pet noticed the package with the red vial in it and reached out for it when Artie grabbed her hand.

"Pet, is there something wrong?" Artie eyed her curiously.

"What makes you think that?" Pet asked trying to sound innocent.

"You've been acting secretive and well just plain strange all day. Is it this wedding? Because you didn't get one?" Artie asked.

"What? No! I love the way we got married. It will be one of my most treasured memories." She smiled at him.

"Only one?" Artie winked at her as he leaned forward and kissed her.

*Apple finds her husband, Captain Wade Hamilton, in the bar area with some other men. He has been waiting for her to appear.*

Captain Wade:"Hun, what is it? What do you need?"

Apple:"Uh, yes, I need your assistance in the reception area. The gift table is overflowing, we need to move the gifts..." she tells him with her eyes that this is urgent.

Captain Wade:"Of course, of course, lead the way!"

When the Hamiltons rush into the reception area they find Artemus and Pet in the midst of yet another kiss. Apple can't hide her glee, but Wade groans,"Not again!" and clears his throat. The Gordons do not notice.

Wade takes a step forward and placing his left hand on Arte's shoulder, he pulls at his friend, while also pulling at Pet's shoulder with his right hand. Pet swats at Wade, but does not let Arte out of the kiss. Wade looks to his wife for help.

Apple:"Petunia Gordon, there is no reason to slap at Wade...are you aware of what you have in your hands?"

“What? Oh, yeah…uh…we were just…” Pet stammered as Wade and Apple looked on smiling.

“We saw what you were just…” Apple smirked.

“We do have business to conduct here people,” Capt. Hamilton smirked as he nudged Artie.

“Right, sweetheart, we can pick up where we left off later,” Artie said to his bride.

“Capt. I need those boxes on the floor over there, they have the solid nitro in them,” to which she got a quick look from Apple and Artie.

“Artie, you take this,” she said handing him the blue vial, “and whatever you do don’t let those two mix until we get everyone out of the house.”

Artie carefully put the vials in separate pockets as he filled his pockets with explosives.

*Bess appears in the reception room, a hungry, angry look on her face. She is looking for Sam Cumberland, determined that he will pay for the death of her aunt. She passes through the reception area without seeing her fellow agents huddled together near the gift table, and she does not realize that James is following her closely.*

Artemus:"Well now, I think that we have a fight on our hands. Let's go."

Pet rushed over to the gift table and pulls two particular gifts from the pile and hands one to Artie as she tears the paper off hers. Artie eyes her curiously when she opens the gift to reveal a pistol and extra ammo. Artie does the same and grins at her.

The three agents and the Captain follow James and Bess. Apple sees that they are headed to Sam Cumberlands library and tells Artemus and Pet, so that they may use their explosives. Apple spots Pidge and gets her attention.*

Apple:"Clarice, dear, I need a favor for the bride...(whispers)Bess is on a rampage. Get the guests outside for something!" Pidge goes off to coerce the guests into the garden, where there is a string quartet, for the couple's first dance.

Apple rejoins the group just as they reach the library doors. Artemus:"James just went inside, Bess is already in there. We need to...wait, listen."

The group hears the raised and angry voice of Bess, then angry shouts from Sam. Suddenly there are shots fired and a tussle can be heard. The group rushes in to the library together. Bess is standing just inside the door, with her arm still straight out, holding her derringer. James is poised over the body of Sam Cumberland.

Apple reaches Bess just before she crumples to the ground, and helps break her fall. Bess, in shock, reaches out to James, and he goes to her side. Wade and Artemus check on Cumberland.

Wade:"He's dead."

Bess:"I want...the house..."

Pet:"You want the house? Why?"

Bess shakes her head, no. "I want it gone, blown away." She looks at Pet and then her eyes rest on Artemus. "I want you to do it, Artemus." She does not take her eyes from his.

Jim:"Artemus, you do what you need to do, I am getting Bess out of here." He looks straight into his partner's eyes. Arte knows that there is no stopping him.

Arte:"All right partner, all right. Take her and get her out of here. Apple, you need to warn Pidge, Jeremy and the others to get out. Pet and I will set the explosives, Wade please remove Mr. Cumberland from this room. We need proof of his death for his daughters."

Apple leaves the room and heads for the garden to warn Pidge while James picks up Bess and leaves the house through the front door. No guests have seen them leave.

Artie and Capt. Hamilton check Sam for a pulse and Artie remembers the vials in his jacket pockets. He carefully removes them and places them on the desk leaning them against each other. I can knock them over on my way out, Artie thought as he made his way inside the secret entrance.

On the other side of the room Pet was busy placing the solid nitro just inside the secret entrance behind the bookcase. She failed to notice one man slip past Capt. Wade as he was lifting Sam’s body and he took aim and fired. Pet felt a stinging sensation on the top of her right shoulder but she couldn’t stop now. She continued placing her explosives and hoped her husband was faring as well as she was.

Artie was busy on his side placing his share of explosives deep inside the entrance and he didn't hear the shot. He could only marvel at the new ideas his wife had come up with and he was very glad he had married her. I’m one lucky son of a gun, Artie thought, as he placed the last of the explosives. All that remains is to make sure the guests are outside as well as the other agents and then pour the liquid and run.

Artie turns toward his wife and sees the red stain on her clothing. He opens his mouth to shout to her when he feels a searing pain in his arm. He clasps his arm and heads for his wife. Capt. Hamilton shifts Sam’s body and fires at the assailant hitting him directly in the heart. As he falls he hits the desk knocking the vials over and the fluid begins its journey unnoticed by the occupants in the room.

“Crud!” Pet shouts as she looks toward her husband, seeing the blood running down his arm and forming droplets on the desk.

“What?” Artie asks as he tries to stop his wife and check her wound.

“We gotta get out of here now! LOOK!” Pet points to the chemicals slowly moving toward each other.

“How long?” Artie manages to say through a gulping breath.

“Well, if my new time delay works about a minute and a half.”

“Well then what are we waiting for?” Artie grabs his wife and pulls her to him and they follow Capt. Hamilton from the room.

Jeremy had taken Kit outside she was shaky but standing on her own. She saw the others come out of the house Jim and Bess first then Captain Wade carrying Sam and Pet and Artemus right after. Though she was tired and could barley walk Kit went into Dr mode the one she had been in so many times during the war. As they were far enough away from the explosion she had Jim lay Bess down and she checked her. No wounds, good heart Rate good... she turned to him
"She will Be ok."

She checks Sam and Looks at Wade and Apple "Are you both ok?"

They nod and she makes her way over to Pet and Artemus She had made sure Jeremy pick up her bag on the way and she looked at Pets shoulder "Clean through Although we need to stop the bleeding." Kit began working on her cleaning out the wound and then dressing it. She turned next to Artemus and saw his Arm she said nothing Just ripped his sleeve and began to work she cleaned it and stitched it up. "you two will need some rest and some quiet as will Bess and I suggest that for the rest of you as well."

Kit stood and noticed all of them staring at her and she spoke "what?"

Jeremy came to her side "I think you should sit down you are awful pale."

She didn't argue for once in her life and she set down thankful to do so Artie spoke
"You were the Dr in the field unit during the war."

"One of many Captain Gordon one of many."

"You were one of the best what happened?"

"I can explain that" Jim spoke "She was discovered shortly before the war ended and was being court martial... I remember that trail for it was one of a very few that General grant spoke at"

"Yes the General stood up for me that day, and I had to promise not to practice medicine or try and rejoin the military in any fashion.... A short time ago he recalled in the favor and so I am here."

Jeremy looked at her "And practicing medicine."

"Only in an emergency" She couldn't finish her statement for the house exploded.

Artie, "Come one step closer and I'll misspell your name!"

"Whoa!" Artie and Pet replied in unison as they watching the house disolve.

"NIce work, sweetheart," Artie looked to his bride and he saw her holding a folded sheet of paper.

"You didn't do so bad yourself," she replied with a smile. Artie thought she looked exhausted.

"Uh...guys, I'm going to take my wife back to the train. She really needs some rest right now."

"Would you like us to come with you?" Kit asked.

Pet had a look akin to fear on her face and she shook her head no. The group had a feeling they knew what was coming and didn't want to intrude. Kit did know and she felt for her friend. She gave Pet a hug.

"You'll make it through this, Pet. I'll be waiting for you when you get back," Kit whispered to her friend.

Artie helped Pet up onto his hourse and then climbed up behind her and held her tight. To him Pet alsmost seemed rigid.

Artie held the parlor car door open for his wife, concern written on his face. She had been so quiet on the ride back from the mansion. Several times he had seen her take a paper out of her pocket and hold it, a strange look on her face. Artie led her to the settee and they sat down.

“Would you like something to drink? Some water maybe?” Artie asked Pet merely shook her head.

Pet looked into Artie’s eyes and searched her heart. She knew what she was about to say would break his heart in two but her love for him was so strong she knew she couldn’t allow the alternative to come to be.

When he held her she had felt safe and secure for the first time in a long time. There was nowhere she’d rather be than in his arms.

“Artie, my love, I need to tell you something and I need you to hear me out before you say anything,” Artie read the confusion and utter sadness written in her eyes. Whatever it is it’s tearing her apart, Artie thought as he wiped the single tear from his beloved’s cheek.

“All right, sweetheart, but you know that no matter what you have to tell me it won’t make any difference in my feelings for you.” Pet took a deep breath before she began.

“I should have told you this earlier but I couldn’t risk jeopardizing this mission,” Keep going Pet you KNOW it’s the right thing to do, she thought.

“You know since our last talk that I love you with all my heart and there is nowhere I’d rather be than with you,” Artie sensed her anxiety and took her hands and held them in his.

“I have wanted to be a field agent more than anything in my life until I met you. Then all I wanted was to be with you,” Where is she going with this? Artie wondered getting worried.

“I was on cloud nine when you asked me to marry you. It was the happiest I’ve been since…well I won’t go there.”

“Our marriage came to the attention of President Grant. He’s upset by the way that you didn’t wait until he could be there.”

“Anyway, I sent him a telegram and received my reply,” So THAT’S what all the secrecy’s been about, Artie thought.

“As much as it pains me to say this,” Pet looked into his eyes, tears flowing freely now, “I am calling an end to my fantasy.”

“What? You can’t be serious! What happened, who has done or said something to you?”

“Artie, darling, Grant himself sent us a wire telling us that while he sanctioned our marriage one of us would have to give up being a field agent.”

“Fine then, I’ll wire my resignation immediately. I’ll go back to acting.”

“No, my love, acting is who you WERE. A Secret Service Agent is who you ARE, and you are one of the best. I will not let you give that up. Not for me.”

“The President thinks my talents would go to waste in a lab or behind a desk and as hard as it is to hear I must agree.”

“I will seek an end to this marriage in order to save your career…” Pet was trying very hard to continue as she spoke the words that tore their hearts in two.

“Hang my career! I could be happy being an actor again I know I could. Your career as an agent is just beginning. I won’t let him do this to us!”

“Artemus, no…our lives are what they are and sometimes we must sacrifice our wants for the needs of the greater good and for our country,” Pet’s tears flowed like a river now.

“There will come a time when our country no longer needs our services and then I will be there if you still love me and still want to be with me,” Artie’s tears were flowing like a fountain and joined hers.

“I will always love you my little one. I will be waiting for you.” Artie pulled her into a tight embrace.

“We will find a way to deal with this,” Artie stated adamantly.

“I know we will. I don’t want to lose you and I don’t have to like it…but I do understand and I am willing to let you go. I will never forget what we have Artemus Gordon and I most assuredly will never forget you.”

Pet forced herself out of the arms of the only man she would ever love and made her way to the stable car where she had already saddled her horse.

“Come on Little Boy, you need to clear my head and my heart for me.” Not bothering to lower the ramp, Pet mounted Little Boy, grabbed the reins and hurled herself off the train and into the night.

Inside the parlor car Artie sat on the settee, head bowed, not caring if anyone entered, tears still flowing. He rose and crossed to the telegraph key. Opening it, he sent a telegram to Washington telling Richmond he was taking some time off…that he needed to get away and clear his head and let them know that Pet had left already.

Artie returned the key and, ignoring the tapping machine requesting an explanation, he packed his bag and left the train, leaving behind a note for his partner

Agents! Ya can't live with them. And Admin takes a rather dim view to ya blowing em up.

After a resonable amount of time kit stood with the help of Jeremy "lets go home now."

They let the locals deal with the clean up and Jim saddled his horse and with Jeremy's help put her in front of him. Captian wade helped Apple onto her horse then mounted his "My wife and I will be staying in town while I am on leave."

Apple looked at Kit "If you need anything just send for me."

"Thanks Apple you two enjoy yourselves." Jeremy helped Kit to her horse, And then helpled Pidge.

Once back at the train Jim found the note and nodded Kit looked out the window and spoke "fates Speed my friends" Her heart was breaking for them both She turned to see Jim had vanished probably to go talk to Bess and she sat down on the setee and spoke to Pidge

"How are you fairing my friend?"

Jeremy had went into the kitchen to find some food and some warm cider.

Artie, "Come one step closer and I'll misspell your name!"

The Telegraph suddenly went off and Jeremy walked over to it and set down. They were letting us know that we had a two week vacation. Jeremy Typed back a response and that Kit was indeed alive. It came back in quick succession and Kit stood and nodded.

She looked at Pidge “Sorry but it seems I am being called to visit with Col Richmond.”

Jeremy typed something back and the response was she was to come alone.

Kit looked at her Friends.”Pidge please tell apple I will be back soon, and thank Jim for me.”

She went to her horse and climbed up Pidge came out with Jeremy.

Pidge “Be careful”

“I will pidge take care of the others for me I’ll be back” Kit rode to meet the Col.

On arrival they showed her straight to his office. He spoke sharp to Her “Miss Montgomery have a seat.”

“Yes Sir”

He turned to her “We have a problem....”

(To Be Cont)

Artie, "Come one step closer and I'll misspell your name!"
