*Apple takes off at a clip to find Jim with the others. She is worried about what could be in the telegram, because they have not heard from Artemus. Could he be in trouble? Jim and the others are discussing what they know when Apple finds them. She rushes to Jim and hands him the telegram. He reads it quickly, glancing at Pet*

Jim tore open the wire and quickly scanned it. Crumpling it he sighed. This was not like Artie. He had known his partner was hurting but he didn’t think it had escalated this far.

“Bad news, Jim?” Apple asked fearing her thoughts were true.

“Real bad, Orin saw Artie enter the train four days ago but repeated knocks on his door and telegrams from the President are going unanswered.” Pet’s head snapped up.

“Jim you don’t think…” she couldn’t allow herself to think of the possibilities.

“Artie’s emotional but he’d never stoop to something like that,” Jim spoke softly when he noticed the worried look on Pet’s face.

“Don’t worry, I’ll go talk to him…see if I can help him before Grant decides to come looking for him,” Jim smiled.

“I’ll just go tell Bess if one of you could get my horse from the livery I’d appreciate it.” Jim rose to leave and Pet stood as well.

“And mine too please,” Jim looked at her hesitantly.

“It’s okay, Jim. Really, I am partially responsible for Artie’s current state of mind. If I can help restore him in anyway I at least owe him that.” Jim nodded and he ran up the stairs to Bess’ room.

“Pet, if anyone can pull him out of this it will be you and Jim. You go change though the shock of seeing you like this might be too much for him,” Apple tried to make her friend smile.

Pet grinned and rolled her eyes and ran to change before meeting Jim outside at the hitching post.

Jim came up to the room Bess was in.
Jim'How you doing?'
Bess'Better, I think this stuff has worn off.' She tried to rise from the bed trying hard not to let him know how dizzy she was.
Jim'Sit back down Bess, Pet and I are going to get Artie. Any you are not to go anywhere, I have Pidge and Apple keeping an eye on you.'
Bess'Oh great, now the great Jimmy West taking care of everything act.'
Bess smiled and him and he smiled back.
Jim'I'll see you in a bit, Bessie Mae.'
Bess'Don't you dare say that full name in anybody's presence.'
He kissed her on the forehead and left.

Jim and Pet met on the stairs and descended together. As they were heading toward the door they bumped into a well-dressed man. Both being in a hurry they didn’t stop to talk.

“Sorry, sir…in a hurry,” Jim mumbled as they continued on their way.

They arrived at the train to find Orrin checking on the train. When he recognized the riders approaching he waited for them. Jim and Pet slid out of their saddles before their steeds halted.

“Orrin, is he…?” Jim asked nodding his head toward the train.

“Yeah, Mr. West. Been hearin him walkin the train pretty near the last 24 hours straight,” Orrin looked at Pet.

“Been hearin him talk in his sleep what little he got.”

“What was he saying?” Jim asked.

“Mostly talk about you, Mr. West…” Orrin looked at the ground sheepishly, “you and Miss Pet,” Pet lowered her head not the reaction Jim would have thought she might have.

*Apple returns to Bess's room, along with Pidge. They are going to make sure that she stays put and gives them more information to work with. Jeremy has decided to do some investigating around town. Before he lets Pidge go upstairs with Apple he pulls her aside.*

Jeremy:"Pidgeon, you must be very careful. Remember your training...I don't know how I would feel if anything were to happen to you..." he stares into her pretty face, smiling.

Pidge blushes. "Jeremy, I don't know...this isn't wholly appro..." she decides that those eyes staring at her are too much, and she leans up and kisses Jeremy.

Dr. Montgomery nodded to the man and woman he was accustomed to people being in ahurr so it didn't bother him. He walked out into the night the rain had stopped and he made his way to the saloon, a good drink and then he would turn it he had a long few days comming and was not looking forward to that.

After his drink he headed back to the hotel the saloon was to loud for anyone to think. He tipped his hat to the night man and went to his room, the room that the voices were comming from earlier was now very quiet.

In his room he took off his hat, jacket and tie and sat by the window this gave him a good view of anyone approching the hotel. The Dr was a people watcher it gave him insights to personalities and he liked that being a Dr he only saw one side of people most of the time. It was nice to see them not in pain.

Jim jumped up to the platform and hurried through the train. He paused outside his partner’s bedroom door before he quietly knocked. When he didn’t receive a reply he tried again.

“Artie, it’s me, open up, pal,” Jim said as he knocked.

“Jim?” came the muffled reply.

“Yeah, Artie, now are you going to open up so I can come in or do you have to wire Washington and tell them you blew up another door when you force me to break it down?” Jim hears a rustling sound and then the lock slides back. When the door doesn’t open Jim gently pushes it open and leans in.

“Oh God, Artie! You look like you haven’t eaten or slept in days!” Jim said as he took the chair facing Artie sitting on the bed. Some friend and partner I am thinking about myself when you’re going through hell. Well, I’m here for you now partner.

“I don’t know what day it is so I really couldn’t tell you that,” Artie shrugged his shoulders and sighed.

“It’s been a few days, Artie. And you look like hell, care to talk about it?” Jim gave him the opening he knew he needed.

“A few? How many is a few?” Artie eyed him one brow raised.

“Four,” Jim responded softly.

“Whoa, well that would explain why I feel like hell,” Artie rubbed his hand along his chin and feeling the whiskers rose and walked to the mirror.

“Why don’t you shave while we talk?” Jim prodded not wanting to tell him why he should make himself presentable.

Since she was alone, Bess tried to get up again. She started rifling through her clothes when the door flew open.

Apple'Where do you think you're going?'
Bess'I'm going back to where Bella Donna is, I know Dr Loveless is alive. I heard Bella Donna talking to another man about him. Dr. Loveless wants your money for a lightening machine.'
Apple'Lightening machine?'

Pidge came in the middle of the conversation.
Pidge'Lightening machine?'
Bess'Yes, and I've got a strange thought that the fire at the drs office was not accident. Dr Loveless meant to kill Jim and me. Did Jeremy go with Jim and Pet?'

Artie began the process of shaving and watching Jim in the mirror, not knowing where to start. Jim keeps looking at that door like he’s expecting something…or someone, Artie thought.

“Expecting someone, Jim?” Artie eyed his partner’s reflection in the mirror.

“What? No…just waiting for my partner to spill his guts. I want him back.” Jim stared at his friend.

“That’s not going to be easy, partner. I’m not sure where to start!” Artie said applying the shaving lather to his stubble.

“How about at the beginning?” Jim smiled.

“Funny, James, real funny,” Artie rolled his eyes. Jim sat patiently and waited.

“I just don’t know, Jim. I know this is all my fault but I can’t find it in myself to be sorry for what I’ve done.”

“It that bothering you? The not being sorry?” Jim prodded him hoping he could help him work this out.

“No…yes…I don’t know. I can’t help the way I feel. I can’t make it go away but at the same time I know I have a job to do and can’t let my feelings get in the way.”

“Artie, you’re a smart man…the smartest I know, you’ll find a way to make this work if that’s what you really want. Take it from me…don’t let what you want slip through your fingers. Letting go when you first have the chance only causes problems down the road,” Artie turned and looked startled at his partner’s revelation.

*Pidgeon blushes at the question, but she answers.*

Pidge:"Uh...erm...no." She clears her throat, then seems herself again. "He is staying here to keep an eye on the three of us. He did tell me that we need to remember our training. We are in danger, of course. Well, I am..."

Apple:"YOU are? What do you mean Pidge, what have I not been told? We need to communicate in this partnership so that we may all do our jobs effectively!"

There was a knock at the door opening it, the bellboy was frantic.

"Dr. Montgomery I hate to disturb you, but Mr. Coopers wife is in labor and our town Dr is out a the Masion ranch dilivering out ther."

Kyle turned grabed his hat and his bag and followed the bellboy out and to the general store. He followed the young man up the stairs and knocked on the door, a young man answered.

"Mr. Cooper?"

"No I am his Son, Pa is off on restocking run, he left me in charge, Sir"

"Well that makes you Mr. Cooper, I am Dr Montgomery."

He made his way to the woman on the bed and checked her this was going to be a long night, He sent the young man after some water and towels and spoke to Mrs. Cooper.

"I know having a new Dr can be a bit scary, but I have done this many of times Mrs. Cooper and my First Name is Kyle"

She smiled as best she could through the contractions and he did his best to make her comfortable.

“Is there something you’d care to tell me, Jim?” Artie asked his cryptic friend.

“Not right now, Artie. We’re here to get you back to normal!” Jim smiled at him but Artie noticed the smile didn’t reach his eyes.

“We’re here…you're not alone?” Artie asked as he patted aftershave on his cheeks.

“Uh…no not exactly…” Jim stammered.

“Who came with you? And why did you leave them out in the parlor car…I assume you at least let them in.” Artie looked at him.

“Wha…oh yeah…I thought I’d better see what shape you were in first,” Jim tired to avoid his partner’s eyes.

“Well, don’t keep me in suspense, boy, who’s out there?” Artie asked as he straightened his shirt and vest.

“Artie, I brought Pet with me,” Jim almost whispered.

“Pet…Pet is out there?” Artie gulped.

“Yeah, pal. When I got the telegram she insisted on coming.”

“Wait…telegram? What telegram?” Artie asked confused.

“Oh, the one from Grant. Ordering me to check on you. You were seen entering the train a few days ago by the crew but you weren’t answering for anyone not even telegrams.”

“Oh, I have been remiss in my duties haven’t I? I’m sorry, Jim.”

“Don’t be sorry, Artie, despite what you might think you are only human.” Jim smiled at him as he shoved him out the door and toward the parlor car and the guest.

There is a knock at the door and Pidge goes to answer it. Jeremy is there and he motions her out into the hall. He shows her a newspaper article about odd lightening strikes. Lightening when there hasn't been a cloud in the sky.

Jeremy: "I want to show you something else in this paper." He turns the page and shows her her own picture. "You've made news, Pidge. They're talking about your inheritance. You're a celebrity now. I want you to stay with Bess. Keep a low profile until I come back. Then I'll have another idea for a disguise."

He pulls her close to him and kisses her. His strong arm held her protectively for a moment and then released her.

BOOM!!! The building shook.

Apple rushes out of the room breathless. "We've been struck by lightening."

Jim led the way into the parlor car making sufficient noise so Pet could be ready for their entrance. He pushed the door open and stepped through holding it for Artie. Pet rose from the settee and stood waiting not really sure what to say to him.

Artie hesitantly walked through the door and stood staring at her Jim saw the light return to his eyes for a moment. Oh he looks terrible, Pet thought as he crossed to the settee and motioned for her to sit before he took a seat next to her. He looked down at his hands not wanting to face her.

“Artie, I can see I was right when I insisted on joining Jim.” Pet told him, Jim made an excuse about tending to the horses and left them alone.

“I knew you would blame yourself for this but I am just as much to blame as you.” She reached over and grasped his chin in her hand making him look at her.

“I do not blame you, nor do I hold you responsible for anything that’s happened. We both made a decision that we will have to live with for some time. I am willing to do whatever is necessary to make this work. I love being an agent and I love our little group,” Artie’s eyes searched hers.

“I know things can’t go back to the way they were and I can live with that. We have a job to do and we will do it. Whatever happens while we’re doing our job happens.” Artie thought long and hard before he spoke.

“Now I know why I feel the way I do about you and why I married you. You’re so understanding and you have a way to put things into perspective like no one I’ve ever met.” He pulled her into a tight hug and whispered in her ear, “I think we just might be able to pull this off yet!”

Just moments before the boom, Young Cooper heard a baby cry, He went into the room and saw his Ma holding a screaming bundle. He lookedd to the Dr.

"Mother and daughter are doing fine."

He sook the DR hand "Thank you Dr Montgomery"

He smiled at the boy "For what, your Ma did all the work. She will need rest for a couple of days can you see to that?"

"Yes sir"

"Good Lad" he cleaned up his hands and bid his goodbye to the Coopers he was almost out the Door when the young man came out again

"Doc, Ma says I should pay ya somethin'"

"Don't worry about it, it was my pleasure." Just then he heard the boom and stepped out the door to see the hotel on fire he looked at the young man "You take care of your Ma"

Kyle was at the hotel in a matter of steps seeing what he could do to help.

Kyle ran into the hotel and up the stairs taking three at a time he knocked on the doors ushering the people from thier rooms and out the door he made it too the room with Bess and saw Apple and Pidge standing outside.

"Ladies you have to leave the building now it is on fire."

Apple "But my friend is having trouble staying on her feet." Kyle walked over and picked Bess up and looked at the other two women. "let's go"

He headed down the stairs with Apple and Pidge he saw Jeremey helping some more people out of the Hotel. Outside Kyle sat Bess a safe distance away from the hotel and looked in her eyes, then turned to apple "She has been drugged here give her this it will help lesson the dizziness."
He stood quickly and went to help the others injured in the fire most were minor. The towns folk made a water brigade to try and keep the fire from spreading. After Kyle checked all those hurt he joined the water brigade.

Pidge watches with Apple and Bess as the townspeople finish putting out the fire. She pays particular attention to the tall man with the dark hair and the handsome face passing the buckets to the front. Every once in a while he turns to her, mops his brow and smiles. She smiles back.

Fortunetly the hotel is not severly damaged. Most of the damage is restricted to the kitchen. After about three hours they're all allowed back inside.
