"Private party? For who?" Jeremy was all over this...how could he protect his partner? "Can I be there? She is my sister's kid, after all. I promised to take care of her..." he watches Louella carefully, not wanting to give her any reason to be suspicious.

"Well sure, shug'! That'd be awright. Won't hurt none to have a bit of protection there, to keep everybody in line." She winked at him. "I'll be there too, shug'." Louella got up off Jeremy's lap to go help out behind the bar, and laughed heartily when he swatted her on the derriere as she passed him.

Bess held her hand up trying to keep peace. She was going to her best to keep peace until this mission was over with.

Bess'Pidge, don't do that, if he says so, its true, right James?'
Faux Jim'Yes, I suggest we all get some rest before the trip tomorrow, the stage leaves at six in the morning.'

Pidge went to the doorway of the bedroom she and Bess were sharing.
Pidge'Goodnight then, are you coming Bess?'
Bess headed for the door and the faux Jim stopped her.
Faux Jim'May I have a private word with you?'
Bess'For what? Anything that pertains to this mission is not a secret from Pidge.'
Faux Jim'We need to talk a little about our cover, Pidge you're still Frances Sheffield, but since it looks like I'm Jim Morgan Jennifer's fiancee.

Bess gave Pidge the ok signal with her eyes and Pidge left the room.

Kit was checking on Artemus when samuel came back.
"Miss Montgomery we have the ice what would you like us to do."

"Chip it up Sam and bring it in here in buckets, as many buckets as you can find."

"yes Ma'am."

The Deputies brought in two more peopel stricken by the virus and the bills they had on them Kit looked at the counterfit money and put it under the microscope... Nothing it looks just like any other bill but this had to be the cause of it, but how... she tossed the bills in the potbellied stove and went to work placeing the ice chips around those with a strong fever. at least it would keep there body temps down. She went to Jim he had gotten worse overnight and now had a very high fever. She wiped the sweat from her forhead and stood. She stopped by the table and ate a peice of bread. She had ordered whatever they gave them to eat or drink that it be cold even the broth.

Meanwhile outside of Thortonville the old woman sat in her run down shack preparing for another batch of money she cackled as she worked. Only she knew the antidote and it was so simple, no one would ever think of it..

Pet rose and went to the spot she was to meet Mark. She was tired and sore but this was a mission her own personal problems would be shelved until later.

He showed her to a small room and told her to wait. Seconds later the door opened again to reveal a man who looked to Pet like the town doctor, Thought I couldn't trust that man,Pet thought has he produced a hypodermic and asked her to roll up her sleeve.

"What's that for?" Pet didn't like doctors (sorry Kit exception made for friends!) and she liked needles even less.

"If you're going to work here you need this, it's strictly a precaution." After he injected her, he handed her a pair of gloves.

"Wear these at all times when handling the money for the next day or so just to be safe." He turned and left. Pet waited patiently for the boss to come in.

Finally, The door opened and Mark and the man from teh Diamond Tiger came back in the room. He hasked Pet a series of questions then turned to Mark.

"She has guts, experience and the proper attitude. I think she will do good for security."

"Security? But..." Mark protested.

"Pet here already has a cover established as a drifter...think of the potential marks she could line up for us." He turned his attention to Pet.

"You just keep doing what you're doing. You have access to any and all parts of the operation except the old shack outside of town. You are to stay away from there no matter what, understood?" Pet nodded, knowing now right where she would have to find a way to be.

"Good, then you can report to Mark here at the Diamond Tiger whenever you find anything. He's the bouncer." Pet looked at Mark with indifference adn shrugged her shoulders.

Mark allowed her to leave but Pet told him she was thirsty and heaed for the saloon to give Fleur/Apple and Sol/Jeremy an update, while planning her next move.

Pet strode through the saloon, looking for either Fleur/Apple or Sol/Jeremy. She wanted to get out of here and on the case looking for ways to get her hands on that antidote as she was sure Mr. Gordon would need some very soon.

She strode up to the bar and ordered a whiskey while she waited for Flrue to finish her floor show. She turned with her back against the bar and leaned back against it putting pressue on that sore spot.

Fleur/Apple walked off the stage and causally made her way up to the bar. Stopping next to Pet she asked the barkeep for a beer. He slid one to her and she turned to Pet.

"You're becoming quite a regular around here." Pet took the bottle of whiskey and her glass and moved to a table, ask ign Fleur/Apple to join her.

"What's going on?" Fleur/Apple asked eyeing Pet suspicisouly.

"I got the job. Seems they like my style, I'm kind of a roving security person. I'll be in here a lot. They want me to keep my eyrs open for any potential marks and to see if I hear about any trouble before it starts." Pet shifted in her chair.

"Are you all right?" Fleur/Apple asked.

"I'm fine. The beds in the cheap joints here aren't the best."

"Oh and I found out that there is an vaccine to the virus. Seems if you work the ring you get a shot. Had mine this morning. I have to get to work so I'm going to have a look around and see if I can find where they keep the vaccine. Mr. Gordon needs it and soon."

Pet rose to leave, hiding a groan. She turned to Fleur/Apple as she left.

"Nice meeting you, Ma'am I thought I went to school with you...glad I was wrong but we'll be seeing more of each other I'm sure now that I work around here." Pet smiled and left.

It was noon already and Kit was no closer to finding a cure. The Ice seemed to help at least for now she hadn't lost anyone else in the last couple of hours and that was a plus. Milly the banker's wife came over to her. "Miss Montgomery?"
"Please Milly call me Kitana."

"Kitana, where di you learn all of this."
Kit smiled and lied to the woman "I was nurse at a union hospital during the war I picked up alot of useful information. I am sorry to say I am no Doctor but with the town on qurantine no one else will come in right now."

"Well Kitana you are better than most doctor's i have seen." She could see the worry in the young woman's eyes
"He is holding his own Milly, I promise I will find the answer to this or die trying."
The younger woman lay her hand upon Kit's arm "I have a feeling you will."
Kit had been in contact with the Dr at Captian's Ridge and let him know what she had found out which wasn't much. Kit sat by artemus who was mumbling in cohearantly, she placed a cold cloth on his head and looked over at Jim at least he was resting peacfully. She leaned her head up against one of the pews when she heard someone crying she stood and walked over to Elisabeth she was the wife of the first bank teller brought in. Kit kneeled by the man and put her sethescope to his chest she sighed and covered him up. So much for no deaths. She hugged the widow and then heard the sound of someone struggling to breath she moved quickly to the sheriff, he was choking but on what. Working quickly she was able to ease his breathing by turning him on his side.

She stood and walked slowly back to her equipment.. to much death in so short of a time, how many more would she loose, would Gordon and West be next. How could she call herself a doctor when she couldn't even heal a fever. She picked up her cup of tea and it slipped through her hands and shattered on the floor. She looked at the cup just like all these people slipping through her hands. She looked and her hand was shaking, when was the last time I ate she thought and it is getting awful warm in here.

As Pet was leaving she bumped into Sol/Jeremy. She filled him in on what had happened with her undercover assignment and he asked her to come back inside with him.

"It's part of your assignment, Pet. You can talk to me and tell them you're pumping me for information."

They returned to the saloon and Sol/Jeremy motioned the barkeep for a bottle of whiskey. He glanced at Fluer/Apple when she brought the bottle and he asked her to join them. Fluer/Apple was keeping her eye on Pet as she slammed back her third whiskey in the past twenty minutes.

"I know the antidote is here somewhere. The doctor didnt bring his bag to the room just the hypodermic." Pet was telling them.

"I need to get to those back rooms. Can you help me with that, Fleur?" Pet asked.

"Yes, I can show you back there now that you work for them." Loud enough for the other patrons to hear she replied, "Right this way, Pet...You need to be given a tour now that you work here."

They rose and Fleur/Apple took Pet to the back.

After taking Pet to the back, Fleur (Apple) returned to the main hall. She joined Jeremy at the bar. "What's with her, do you suppose?" she asked. Jeremy shook his head.

"She doesn't care much for you usually, but she was downright pleasant, for her. You want a drink?" Apple shook her head. She knew her limit.

"Yeah, and she didn't call me deb. Wonder what it is?" Apple leaned her back against the bar, looking around at the men who were gathered. She noticed Lucky Louella talking to a man she had seen around, but didn't know.

"So Uncle Sol, what was that conversation you were havin' earlier with that group of gentlemen, something about money and your niece?" She turned to face her partner, a smirk on her face.

Pet wandered around the back area checking rooms and seeing what was going on. The man she had met earlier saw her when she opened one door and waved her over.

He was working with...a cactus? Pet raised an eyebrow at him.

"Pet, this is the ingredient in the vaccine." He noted her puzzled look.

"It's a deriviative of the cactus plant. Once processed it wards off the infection and it will heal those previously infected."

"Pretty ingenious." Pet nodded as she slipped a piece of the cactus into her pocket.

"Well, I better get out there and do the job you hired me for. Oh by the way, I think that Sol guy is someone i should stick close to."

"Why do you say that?" The man wanted to know.

"He gets around a lot him and his niece...I think he could be good for the organiztion."

"Oh very astute of you Pet. I knew I made a good decision when I hired you for security. By all means get very well acquainted with him. If he can be of use to us we will need to know his strengths and his weaknesses."

Pet nodded and took her leave returning to the saloon and the table with Sol/Jeremy.

"That's all right, Unc...I can hear about it later. I have ta' get back on the stage." She took a swig from his beer, then returned it to him. "See ya' later."

Jeremy had forgotten about his conversation with those men already...he had better keep a real good eye out for Apple.

"Mind if I join you again, Sol?" Pet asked as he gesutred to a seat.

"Not at all, Pet." Jeremy handed her a glass of whiskey watching as she sipped it.

"What's up?" Sol/Jeremy whispered to her.

"I found the vaccine. They make the stuff right here." She pulled the cactus sample out of her pocket and slid it under the table to him, Jeremy pocketed the sample.

"Get that to Kit right away could you, please? She'll know what to do. And while you're there could you ask her if she has any white envelopes she can give me." At this strange request Sol/Jeremy did a double take.

"White envelopes? Pet, if you need envelopes..."

"Just ask her please. Uh...tell her I only have one left." Pet rose and left to scout around town.

Bess knew you could get more flies with honey than with vinegar. She acted very cordial to the faux Jim and agreed to play nice about being his so called fiancee. But something was bothering her about this man. Even though they'd had few encounters he never acted like this. By acting nice and accepting, she could find out what was going on in his head.

She bid the faux James goodnight. Pidge was still awake when she came in the room.

Pidge'What is going on with him?'
Bess'I still haven't figured that out yet, but you can get more information with honey than you can with vinegar. There is still something not right about him, I just cannot figure it out yet, lets get some rest.'

The faux Jim pour himself a nightcap. Now Bess's attitude was changing. Using the Jim West charm he'd been schooled on, she'd be putty in his hands and infilter this little group. He'd work on Bess more tomorrow.

"Something doesn't feel right." Pidge says as she pulls the covers over her. "He has been acting really strange. Not at all like he did on the train." (she muses about this) "No. This doesn't make sense. Drugged? I don't know."

It was the last floor show of the night. Apple was growing tired of the noisy saloon and wanted to get to bed soon. She was going to have to practice all morning and afternoon tomorrow if she was to be a featured dancer in the next night's review. As she danced up on the stage she could see Jeremy and Pet talking, then Pet was up and walking away. What is wrong with that woman? Apple thought.

After the floor show the bouncers had a time of making sure that the men without money left the saloon. Sol went to his niece, her personal protector. "Fleur, let me escort you to your room." The two went upstairs, a man from the group that Jeremy had been talking to earlier watching them. Jeremy noticed. "You be mighty careful Fleur. Those men were mighty interested in a private party with you as the hostess. I should never have talked to them." He was angry with himself, because now he had to leave her alone in the 'hotel' without protection.

"Uncle Sol, you know that I can take care of myself. G'night Unc..." she leaned up to kiss his cheek, whispering in his ear, "You just get to Miner's Rock with that sample. Kitana needs it to make sure that this doesn't turn into a widespread epidemic. Tell Pet that you are leaving...with her working here, I have someone I can trust."

Jeremy took his leave then, and after speaking with Pet he headed to Miner's Rock with the cactus sample, the message for Kit, and apprehension building in his gut.

The faux Jim woke early he got up and looked out the window thinking how easy this had been so far infilterating into this group. He knew with a little charm, he could get Bess. Besides, that wouldn't be so hard because she was an attractive woman. And when did the Secret Service get these women agents? At least they were nice eye candy. But it was still something about Bess. He was feeling a twinge of guilt of what he might have to do her.

He shut that out of his mind and began thinking about his past. To the world, his previous identity was dead. He was going to get the James West and Artemus Gordon for what they did to him. They would never believe that Morgan Midas was still alive and had plastic surgery to make himself look like James West. He'd fooled many people before this group and knew he could do it again.

As Jeremy rode into Miner's Rock he noticed how deserted the town was. Most of the shops were closed even the saloon had shut down, this was worse than he expected. He saw people going into the curch at the end of town it was late by this time and he carried his package carefully as he walked up the steps and he saw two young men carring a litter out. He couldn't see the body and hoped it wasn't Artemus. He stepped into the church and was amazed at how this place had turned into a hospital. He saw kit and walked up to her she was leaned over a familiar face.
"Kit"
She looked up at him he could tell she hadn't slept in days Jeremy smiled at her "I have the antidote, There is not much but Pet was able to get the formula so you can make more."

She just started at hima blank experession on her face "Have you come into contact with the money?"

"No not yet and the other agents have been warned to not touch the money."

"How are Jim and Artemus?"

"They are holding thier own." Kit gave Jeremy a shot and looked at him. You should be going now the others will need your help in Thortonville.

"Kit when was the last time you slept or ate?"

"Both are irrelivent in times like this I just hope this is not to late for those remianing."

She looked at the formula and begain to laugh, jeremy thought hse had snapped "It a simple mixiture of Cactus Juice and saline solution. For those already stricken you mix it with whiskey and water and give it to them in table spoons. Of course make the answer that simple."

She turned to Milly, I need some bottles a few spoon some whisky and fresh water. The woman nodded and with the help of two younger boys she headed out. Kit Picked up a lanturn and looked at Jeremy "if you will come with me, I am going to need some help collecting the cactus"

Jeremy and Kit gathered the cactus as quickly as possible Kit could see just the begining of sunrise. Sh elooked at Jeremy and they both headed back to the Church.

Just as they made it to the door Milly came out "Kit, Its Mr. Gordon." Kit rushed in and knelt beside him he was having trouble breathing.. she worked for a momnet and with jeremey's help laid artemus on his side it semmed to ease his breathing a bit. she sighed and went to her set up lab and begain to work. She had the women peel the cactus and extract the juice from it, then putting the juice on the stove she added the whiskey and water and begain to heat it.

She fixed up some small packages for pet and handed them to Jeremy "I need you to get these to Pet, and don't let her lift anything heavy" He gave her an odd look
"Just do it, and Jeremy ride safe."
Kit turned and the world begain to spin she fell into the wall and used it for support.
Jeremy went to her "Kit, what is it?"
She waved him off "I will be fine, just get these poeple ok and please don't forget to give those envelopes to pet."

He nodded and left reluctantly to head back to thortionville he was worried about the two agents there.

Kit went back to the stove and sirred the liquid she cooked it until it had the color of milky tea. She let the mixture cool and then poured it into the blottles. She went to Jim first and forced him to take some, then artemus. She had the rest of the ladies give the others the medicine and she crossed her fingers it worked as she went and made more.

The after making the rounds around town Pet stiffly made her way to the Diamond Tiger and hoped Apple and Jeremy would be gone.

Pet heard some of the girls saying that the new dancer had gone up to her room. Choosing a table near the back she motioned for the barkeep to send over a bottle of whiskey and a glass. Lucky Lou came over and spoke with her for a bit asking her to keep an eye on her new star performer when Pet was in the saloon, to which Pet agreed.

"What's going on with Fleur? Don't you trust her?" Pet asked.

"Oh I trust her, it's Sol I think he's trying to line up otuside jobs for her and then I won't get my cut." Pet snickered and nodded.

"I think I'll go talk to Fleur and let her know how to behave when she works for you." Pet said as she rose and headed up to Fluer/Apple/s room.

Bess and Pidge had finished dressing and were getting their things together for the trip to Miner's Rock. They heard a knock on the main door of the suite. They heard the faux Jim answer it. It was Duke Alberto and Prince Anthony with their arms full of flowers.

Bess and Pidge stepped out of the bedroom and noticed them.
Faux Jim'Duke Alberto, what are you doing here, I told you she's my fiancee. We had a small bustup and have resolved our differences.'
Duke'Well by the look on her face, it doesn't look that it has been resolved.
Bess saw the chance and took it.
Bess'I'm sorry Alberto, its true see?'
Jim/Midas took Bess into his arms and gave her a passionate kiss.

When they broke off, Bess spoke up.
Bess'I'm sorry so sorry Alberto.'
Alberto walked out of the room leaving Prince Anthony there.

Prince Anthony'May I have a word with Frances?'

Bess and Jim/Midas left them alone.

Pidge looks aghast at the kiss. The look is not lost on the Prince.

Pidge stares at Bess until Prince Anthony repeats his question.

Pidge takes his hand and suggests that they leave the suite and walk somewhere where they can speak in private.

He bows and the two exit.

Prince Anthony and Pidge watch as Alberto storms out of the hotel.

"Your sister was wrong in her dealings with my cousin. She should learn to choose her suitors more wisely."

Pidge couldn't agree more. "Yes, well...Life never fails to surprise me."

P. Anthony: " I take it that this is as much a surprise to you as it is to us."

Pidge sighs. "Yes, but let's not continue talking about them. Would you care to join me for breakfast?"

Apple was sitting on her bed, reading a book when she heard the knock. Drawing her gun from beneath her dressing gown she went to the door. "Who is it?"

"Pet...let me in deb." She sounded out of sorts, of course. Putting her gun away, Apple put the key in the lock, turned it, then opened the door. "You look awful, come on in."

"Yeah, well you try riding for over 120 miles in one day with little to no sleep, deb, and let me know how you feel!" she snapped at Apple. Apple is unfazed by Pet's gruffness by now.

"What brings you up here, Pet?"

"Lucky Lou actually, she doesnt trust that uncle of yours. She wants her cut in whatever private parties you hostess." she grinned. "When you doin' that, deb?" she snorted.

Apple rolled her eyes. "Not at all, if Unc can help it." She shook her head. "Wish that I had been around...The man should have been more careful when he was talking."

"Yeah, you're right. A veteran should have been...is he back yet?" When Apple shook her head no, Pet continued. "Well the counterfeiters have a shack on the edge of town that I'm not to go near. So guess where I will be as soon as 'Sol' gets back to watch your sorry..." she stops short, "when he gets back."

Apple looks at her partner. Something is not right. Then Jeremy knocks at the door, calling, "Fleur, it's Uncle Sol, you decent?"

Pet snerked at his question.

"As decent as I'm gonna be today," Apple laughs and lets him in.

"Hello ladies, I have news," he eyes Pet, "do you?"

"Tell us yours first. How is Mr. Gordon?" Pet asks, looking Jeremy over, wondering if he brought her envelopes.

"He is incoherent, not good. James is ill as well. Hopefully the vaccine helps soon." Jeremy looks at the girls. "What is your news, Pet?"

She repeated what she had told Apple,"...and I am heading over there now that you are back to keep an eye on your niece."

Jeremy agrees with this, then remembers the envelopes. He hands them to her, and Apple notices. She thinks she knows what they contain. Pet thanks him quietly, then leaves.

Apple watches Pet leave, then shuts the door. "What are you doing giving her those envelopes?" she glares at Jeremy.

Jeremy is astonished at Apple’s reaction. “What do you mean? She told me to get her some envelopes from Kitana when I saw her, and I did.”

“Are you so dense that you don’t realize that those envelopes contain morphine?” Apple’s eyes are flecked with fire, “Jeremy, what do you think has been wrong with her? Why she has those mood swings?”

Jeremy puts his hand to his forehead, “I can’t believe it. I never thought of that, morphine, I mean. How did you figure that out?”

Apple disappeared behind a screen to change for her rehearsal. “Jeremy, you know my brother, don’t you? Kent?” she flipped her dressing gown over the screen.

“Yes, I know Kent, what does that have to do with Pet?

“Kent was on an undercover assignment out here, and the group he was mixed up in got him hooked on the stuff.” Apple has finished dressing in a short cotton dress with lots of petticoats and comes back around the screen.

Jeremy looks at her, his expression showing concern. “I’m sorry Apple I didn’t know. Is that why he is on permanent assignment in DC?”

Apple nodded at him as she sat on the edge of the bed to button on her boots over the black stockings. ‘Yes…he almost lost his position all together, but since he was on assignment, the government gave him a second chance. His wife has helped him so much, though. And she is happier having him around all the time.”

She finished buttoning her boots, then stood up. “Uncle Sol, Lucky Lou is watching me to make sure I don’t get any extra work…Keep an eye out for your ‘friends’ from last night. And find a way to get me out of that private party next week, will ya’? I have a bad feeling about that.” She kissed Jeremy on the cheek and led him out of her room, locking the door behind her.

Pet leaves the saloon and reluctantly mounts Little Boy and heads for Captain's Ridge to meet Pidge and Bess and get an update on what they are doing. She twisted and turned in the saddle waiting for the powder to kick in.

She reached Captain's Ridge and the hotel where Pidge and Bess were. Pet entered the hotel and loked for the ladies. Finding Bess she approached her and asked to speak to her privately. Seeing Jim there she was confused and concerned. Something is not right here,Pet thought, Didn't I see Jim in the church with Kit sicker than a dog from the virus?

"Bess, I wanted to give you an update on Mr. Gordon..." Pet kept staring at Jim.

"Bess, how long as Jim been here?" Bess didn't answer.

"How is Artie?" She asked instead.

"Hopefully I found the vaccine and got it to Kit in time. I have to get back to Thorntonville yesterday can you give me an update on what's going on here? Have you gotten any more information on the counterfeiting ring here?"

Pet filled her in on what had been happening in the other two towns as they stood in the lobby. Suddenly Pet began to sway and she stumbled over to a nearby chair.

Bess: "Pet, what's wrong, are you okay?" She sat next to her concerned.

"I'm fine. Just too many miles on horseback the last few days." Pet slowed her breathing and looked at Bess.

"I have to get back you ladies need to be careful." Pet pushed herself out of the chair and left amid protests from Bess.

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

When Pet walked into the main hall of the Diamond Tiger Apple was in the middle of her afternoon rehearsal. She had just been lowered to the floor on a swing that was suspended from the ceiling and launched into twirling and kicking.

How does she do that in those heeled boots? Pet thought. She threw some money on the bar and asked for a bottle of whiskey and a glass. She sat and watched Apple and the other girls dancing. When she thought no one was looking she dumped the contents of an envelope into the glass of whiskey she had poured. She hadn’t noticed that the music had stopped and that the girls were milling around, stopping for cigarettes and water. She looked up to find Apple walking toward her with a plate of food.

“Deb.” She acknowledged her partner. “Whatcha’ got there? Your lunch?” She took a swig of the drug imbued whiskey.

“No, it’s yours. Eat it. You haven’t eaten in days, have you Pet?” Apple looked more angry than concerned.

Pet met her glare head on. "What, you my mother now, deb? I don't have to eat that..." she stared at the fried chicken and mashed potatoes, wishing she hadn't said that. She was hungry, come to think of it.

"I don't care what you do, Pet. But that powder you mixed with that whiskey, it'll take over your life." Apple had taken a seat and poured herself a glass of the whiskey. "No more missi...work. You want that?" She lit a cigarette as she looked at Pet, tossing the match on the floor. Pet watched the smoke rise around Apple's head, but she did not answer her. Instead she took another swig from her glass, as Apple took one from her own.

M/J looked at Bess.
M/J'Are you going to slap me or something?'
Bess'No, it was just a shock last night when you did that.'
M/J'I know I was too forward but I didn't want the couples walking by us to hear what was going on. How about if we start this over?'
Bess'That's fine, Jim, just fine, I'm ready to meet the stage are you?'
M/J'Yes, lets go get your sister Pidge.'
They left the room to find Pidge and Anthony.

They found them in the hotel resturant eating breakfast.
P Anthony' Would you two care to join us?'
M/J'No, I'm sorry we have a stage to catch.'
P Anthony'I just offered Frances a ride in my personal coach to the the town,would you like to join us?'
Bess'May I have a word with my sister?'

Bess and Pidge went into the hallway out of earshot.
Pidge/F'I think its better if we got to Miners Rock seperately, I want to find out if Anthony is involved in this.'
Bess/J'Me too, I want to figure out what is going on with Jim?'
Pidge/F'Has he done anything else to you? That was some kiss he laid on you.'
Bess/J'It was all an act.'

Bess hugged Pidge.
Bess'See you in Miners Rock.'

Bess and Pidge went back to the men and explained that Bess and Jim would take the stage, but Pidge/Frances would take Anthony up on his offer. Bess and M/J bid their goodbyes and boarded the stagecoach for Miner's Rock.

Kit had worked on making more of the medcine for eth virus and was in the middle of pouring some in abottle when it slipped and hit the ground. "Dang it!!" She bent over to clean it up and nearly fell into the table. she steadied herself as Milly came over.

"Kit, I think you should see this."

"what is it milly?"

"Its Mr. West."

Kit went to Jim and saw his green eyes staring up at her she bent down and check his pulse felt his forhead. she smiled at him
"How are you feeling Jim?"
"Like I have been run over by my horse."
"Good" He looked at her oddly "Your fever has broken, you will need a few more doses but will be good as new in no time."

"Artie? how is he?"
"He is not responding yet but he was a lot sicker than you were. You just rest I have to get the rest of this medicine ready and deliver it to Captian's ridge."

She went back to work and in a few hours had what she hoped was enough she sent Samuel and a deputy in a wagon toward Captian's Ridge. She was going to go herself but she was worried about the few who didn't seem to be responding to the medicine. She hoped it wasn't to late.

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