"It's a little hard to explain but I have this gift."

"Gift?"

"Yes," he continues. "I can tell when someone is not telling me the truth. I can't explain why but I always know. And he wasn't telling me the truth."

Pidge ponders this new revelation. "You mean, you're guessing he wasn't telling you the truth."

"No, Pidge. I can tell. It's like Pet. I can tell that she has not been totally forthcoming. And you. You say that you are not interested in any of the agents here but..."

"Ok. That's enough. I believe you."

Kit sat at the front of the courtroom feeling like a turkey on thanksgiving morning, she would hang for sure unless something changed drastically. She looked back at her fellow agents and could tell they were none to happy while her lawyer snoozed his drink off. Being overly frustrated kit shoved her lawyer out of his chair and he hit the floor, he looked up for only a moment before falling back into his slumber she just laughed which did not show a good impression to those here to sepak against her.

Jeremy sees the confusion going on and notices that Kit is getting antsy. This does not bode well for her if she cannot control her frustration.

He maneuvers his way over to her and sits in the lawyer's chair. He gives the slumbering man a shove with his foot. Kit smiles grimly.

"Just moving the trash out of the way, Kit." he tells her.

"Now. What is going on?"

She looked at her fellow agent "what's going on... Jeremy are you deaf? I am being railroaded here and I can't do anything about it. do you actually think they are going to let anyone speak for me?"

She was wringing her hands "What Mrs worthington said was a complete lie those medicines were not even shipped until the spring of 64 its documented."

Jeremy sits there and listens. Kitana goes on about all of the dirty rotten lies being told about her and what happened back then. The more she talks, the more aggravated she becomes.

Jeremy's eyes pierce through her ranting until she stops and just stares.

"Kit. The first thing we have to do is get you another lawyer. Now, I don't know all there is to know about law but I dare say that I couldn't do any worse than this sorry excuse for a man on the floor here. " (he motions to the heap)

"You'd be a sight better than that yahoo. At least you'd fight for me."

"That I can do, Kit. All right. (he stands up and walks over to the guards). Sirs, I do believe that someone has littered in the courtroom. Would you mind giving me a hand in removing the trash?"

The guards looked at their commanding officer who reluctantly nodded. They picked up the drunken man and removed him from the courtroom.

Jeremy walks back to Kit and sits down next to her.

Jeremy turns and faces Kit.

"Kit. We need to talk strategy. Is there anyone here that you are aware of that might speak on your behalf?

Kit turns and looks around, surveying the room.

"Well, there's Bess for starters. She was a nurse for me. I also noticed that Dr. Von Bootervingers is here. He should be able to tell them the truth."

Jeremy interrupts, "Why would Dr. Von Bootervingers be here, Kit? How did he know to come?"

"He's passing through, Jeremy. He came to the jail to see me and we had a nice talk. He has a sister outside of town."

Jeremy sits back not entirely satisfied.

"Uh huh. Anyone else, Kit? Are there any soldiers that live here that you saved?"

Kit looked at him grimly. "Yes. There are a few. I don't know who would be willing to testify, for all that I did for them. It seems that the Colonel has a stranglehold on this town."

"Are any of them here today?"

"Yes. A couple of them." They turn around. "That one (she points) and that one."

The two men notice her pointing in their direction and get alarmed. They each stand up and exit.

"Well, so much for them," Jeremy looks at Kit.

"Pidge," Bosley whispers. "All of the witnesses so far have been lying. With the exception of a couple of the older ladies."

"Why not them, I wonder. Hmmm."

Bosley whispers again, "Maybe because they really believe it. Maybe because someone that they trusted lied to them."

Pidge nodded. "Makes sense, Bosley."

"All rise!!"

The judge walked in and sat down.
"You may be seated"

"Defense do you have anymore witnesses against the accused."

"yes your Honor I call Mrs. Franklin to the stand"

Mrs Franklin stood and walk quietly to the stand, her hankerchif in hand ready for the tears to start again.

"Mrs. Franklin tell us in your own words what happened to your son."

Mrs Franklin told the story of her son and how he had been wounded in battle and that Kit had refused to treat him and he died because of it. Kit sat there wishing she could tell her side of things waiting for a chance to defend herself. She hoped that the other agents were not falling for this stuff.

"We as Prosecution rests."

It was then the judge noticed Kit had a diffrent Lawyer this one seemed awake. "Do you have anything to add to this case?"

Jeremy Stood "Yes Your Honor we call our First witness Miss Pet."

Pet looked up at the sound of her name and she stood walking toward the witness stand. As she sat Jeremy spoke "Pet you have know the defendent for a long time do you have anything to say tabout her charcater?"

"For starters all those others don't know a bloody thing about Kit." A murmur went through the courtroom.

"Please, Pet, explain your remark." Jeremy asked quietly.

"If I were anywhere there was danger or trouble the first person I’d want to cover my back is Kit.” Pet looked at the jury locking eyes with each and every member as she spoke.

“Why do you think so highly of Kit and her medical skills?”

“If it weren’t for Kit and her medical skills I wouldn’t be here right now. She saved my life removing a bullet I took for President Grant.” Another murmur rose in the courtroom the Judge glared at the gallery.

“So you are saying that without Kit’s skills you would be dead?”

“That’s what I’m saying. I wouldn’t trust school only educated Doctors to remove a splinter.” Jeremy tried not to smirk.

“I see. Are there any other comments you would care to make on Miss Montgomery’s behalf?”

“Yes. I’d like every one of you on the jury to think long and hard. War is insane. Bad things happen in a war and many many lives are lost in war. There is no doubt in my mind that Kit gave the best medical assistance she could under the circumstances. She deserves the benefit of the doubt.”

“I object!” The Prosecutor shouted, “I ask the comment be stricken from the record.”

“Objection sustained.” The judge instructed the court reporter to remove the remarks and Jeremy glared but Pet smiled…she knew the Prosecutor would do that but she had given the jury something to think about.

"No further questions, your Honor.” Jeremy replied as he sat down.

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

“Your witness, Prosecutor.” Jeremy told him as the Prosecutor stood and advanced on Pet.

“Miss…Pet is it? Why no last name? What secrets are you trying to hide?”

“My name is Pet pure and simple. Never had a real last name.” Pet glared at him.

“I see. Well then, Miss Pet, you sit there under oath and want the jury to believe that Miss Montgomery did not knowingly and willingly let those soldiers die?”

“I do. Kit isn’t like that.”

“How long have you known Miss Montgomery?”

“Since before the War.” Loud whispers went through the room and the Judge banged his gavel.

“You knew Kit before the war? Then you would know her character better than anyone here. Tell us about her penchant for hatred…” Pet cut him off.

“Not only can you NOT get me to tell you about something Kit does not possess, but I will not be party to a kangaroo court.” Pet was gripping the armrests on her chair in an effort to contain her anger.

“And furthermore, yes I knew Kit before the War. She was and still is a very humane person. She cares about people and she goes above and beyond the call of duty to save lives.”

“You yourself being one of them? Why should we believe you?”

“”Because one thing I am not is a liar. And Kit’s record SHOULD speak for itself. She saved far more lives in that War than she lost…she had one of the highest survival rates in the whole damn war!”

“Miss. Pet, may I remind you that such language is not tolerated in this courtroom and not by a lady.” The Prosecutor admonished her.

“And need I remind you, sir, that jackasses are to be tied up at the hitching post outside?” Pet said in a low tone only he could hear.

“No further questions for this witness, Your Honor,” the Prosecutor growled.

Pet rose and left the stand listening to the whispered conversations between the jurors, knowing she had at least given them something to think about and that would help Kit she hoped.

As she passed Kit, Pet winked and patted her pocket.

“No worries, friend. You are covered seven ways from Sunday no matter what.” Pet told her and Jeremy raised an eyebrow.

“Pet what are you up to?” He demanded.

“Nothing yet, Mr. Pike. Kit don’t take offense but I have to leave for a bit I’ll try to get back before the verdict.” Kit figured she knew what Pet was up to and smiled and nodded as Pet took her leave, making Apple stare in confusion at her partner.

Pet sauntered down the street, trying to appear like she was bored with the trial. She went over to the gallows and dug around in the brush. She pulled up the bag she had hidden earlier and removed the contents.

She went over to the support beams and fastened the solid nitro to it and ran the wire trough the other beams and placed more nitro. Hehe that Gordon would come unglued if he knew about this. But I have another remote detonator and I think I found a use for it.

Pet shoved the detonator in her other pocket and walked away whistling.

Pidge looks at Bosley after Pet's testimony. He whispers that she was telling the truth although she is hiding something.

Pidge frowns. Pet was right. This is a kangaroo court.

Jeremy looked back to Bosley and Pidge and he couldn’t keep his anger from showing in his eyes. Bosley slept in the same room with Pidge last night…why am I letting this bother me so much? Bosley noticed Jeremy watching him and he began to fidget in his seat.

"We need to talk," Jeremy whispered angrily at Bosley who was trembling slightly.

Bosley tries to contain himself. Secret Service work was a lot more than he bargained for. First the women and now the men.

"What did you do to Jeremy?" asks Pidge.

Bosley can't even answer. He just looks at Pidge and gives a scared little shrug.

"Will the defense please call their next witness."

Jeremy stands up. "I'd like to call Dr. Von Bootervingers to the stand."

A tall thin man with a goatee stands up and walks stiffly over to the stand. A Bible is placed in front of him and he takes his oath.

After sitting down, Jeremy ambles over in his down-to-earth style all the time locking eyes with the witness. Jeremy doesn't trust him. It's just too convenient that he is here the same time that Kit is having her trial.

"Dr. Von Bootervingers. Am I to understand that you served in the war at the same time as Dr. Montgomery?"

"Yes. That is true."

"What do you do now, Dr?"

"I have a practice in a neigboring town and I am here to see my sister."

Jeremy nods. "And who is your sister?"

"uhmm."

"I'm sorry," Jeremy says, "I didn't quite catch the name. Who is your sister?"

The doctor looks up apologetically and answers, "Mrs. Hilda Franklin."

Jeremy's eyes widen with surprise and relief.

"In view of this new information, Judge, I'd like to treat this man as a hostile witness."

The judge just sits there unimpressed. "I see nothing hostile about this man."

"He is the complainant's brother-in-law!"

"Yes, but that doesn't change things. I don't know what you're used to doin' where you come from but everyone here is related to someone." He leans forward. "You'd have to declare the whole town hostile, Mr. Pike."

Jeremy turns and mutters under his breath, "Not a bad idea."

There is a man sitting in the back row. He studied the women agents one by one. He sees the one he's been sent after. He just need to right moment to get her. Soon his window of opportunity would open.

Confusion swept over Apple. Where was Pet off to? They were partners, but they didn't work together very well...yet. Apple was determined that she would give it all she had, but Pet had to be willing. Just what is that woman up to?

The courtroom was getting very stuffy and hot. Bess whispered to Pidge that she was stepping out for a minute. Bess eased out of the courtroom. Jim happened to see Bess walk outside and decided to follow her.

Bess noticed how cooler it was outside. She leaned back up against the wall and closed her eyes for a minute.

Jim saw her leaning up against the wall and approached her.
Jim'Bess, I just wanted to....'

Bess didn't let him finish. When she first opened her eyes, his face still kind of threw her. Sometimes she still had to remind herself this was James West, not Morgan.

Bess'Jim, can't I have a moment of peace? You don't have to follow me around.'

Jim'Bess I just wanted to apologize.'
Bess'Ok, apology accepted, now please leave me alone for a few minutes. I need to get my thoughts together. I'm going to be testifying in a bit.'

Bess walked the opposite direction and was so absorbed in her thoughts she didn't notice she walked in to a dead end alleyway.

Jim started to follow her then thought better of it. As he spun on his heel, the man suprised him. Jim gave it all he could, but the man was able to knock him out with chloroform. The man began dragging him into the alley.

Bess saw what had happened and reached for her hidden pistol. Two men in the alley grabbed her. Bess continued to kick and punch at them, but it was no use. Soon they were able to knock her out with the chloroform too. The men threw Bess into a carriage aheaded for parts unknown.

Jeremy wants to call Bess as a witness soon. He turns to find her but she is not there. Pidge sees him and walks over to see what he wants.

"Pidge. Where is Bess? I need her as a witness."

"Uhmm. She went outside for some air. Let me ask Bosley to go find her and bring her back."

Jeremy nods his head grimly and turns back.

Pidge whispers to Bosley and he picks up his hat and leave the courtroom.

Bess had left after Pet did, and James had followed. Apple was getting restless herself. I should really go see how Pet is. She is really upset by all of this...

Apple quietly left the courtroom and headed outside. She did not see any one of the other agents when she got there, but she heard a muffled scuffling coming from an alley way near the courthouse. As a trained government agent she instinctivly headed to the alley, pistol drawn. Men scramble at the sound of her footfall, and she sees James lying on the ground. Rushing to him, Apple calls his name and starts patting his face.

"James! Wake up James!" She looks up and sees Bosley heading toward her. "Bosley, come here, help!"

Bosley rushes over and sees Jim lying on the ground with Apple leaning over him.

James starts coming to and he automatically pushes Apple's hand away. He tries to sit up but the world is spinning out of control.

Apple pushes him back down. "Don't, Jim. Bosley, give me your coat."

Bosley slowly removes his coat and hands it to Apple who rolls it up and places it under Jim's head.

Jim jumps up, not letting Apple keep him back from his duty. "No Apple, we have to find her. They took Bess, probably to keep her from testifying." Apple's expression changes from concern to shock.

"Where did they take her, which direction?" Apple demands. Bosley is fixated on her commanding tone.
