War at Rifle Rock

JUST outside of town, two riders pulled up. After a brief consultation, one of them, an Indian, nodded and rode off, headed for the distant peaks, leading the extra horses. The other, a cowboy, waited a few moments, then urged his roan forward with a soft, drawled word. He rode easily, supple swaying to the movement of the horse, blue eyes looking ahead to the town.

Apparently there was only a single street, with a few houses straggling out to either side. The street was dusty and rutted and strangely empty. The cowboy saw two groups of horses hitched before two saloons which were far apart. A single buckboard waited in front of the general store. He saw no other signs of life.

His mild eyes narrowed a trifle, and a steely glint came into them. Something was about to explode in Rifle Rock, that was sure.
