Another Day and another super SampleSunday. If you stopped by last week you know we started excerpting from a 'work in progress' that will be published in early January The Chosen One. Here's a little more information about the story.
The synopsis:THE CHOSEN ONE is set in the late 1800's and opens with a stage-coach on its way west being robbed. An unscrupulous bandit man takes notice of Emily, a young woman in her mid-twenty's and decides he can make a profit selling her to a brothel in Mexico. On the journey south his plans for Emily are are interrupted by circumstance beyond his control.
Another man will control Emily's future life. They call him Coyote--a renegade warrior with a wildly fierce and ruthless reputation.
This weeks excerpt: “Everyone out, nice and easy like and maybe nobody gets hurt.’’ The man with the red mask yelled.
The man on the pinto added, “and you two on top, throw them irons down and by quick about it”
Two of the holdup men dismounted and started to roughly pull the stunned travelers outside the coach.
“Lets have your stuff... real slow like.” The man who spoke reeked of booze, dirt, horse, and a month of not bathing.
The cowboy handed over his three dollars and the man holding the bag laughed. “ This work pays better the punching smelly cows all day, cowboy.’’
“Maybe, but you get to live a lot longer.” He answered back.
The gentleman who just got paid for selling a piece of land to the railroad people almost refused. A not to gentle hint with the barrel of the hand-gun pointed at his heart motivated him to hand over the nine hundred dollars to the delight of the outlaws.
Mrs. Fryer panicked and refused to hand her purse over. The second man on foot quickly yanked it from her hand and backhanded her a sound slap across the face. Causing her to fall. Emily the younger woman immediately went to her aid.
“Why you piece of trash! Don’t you see she’s just frightened by you bullies. You had no need to be so rough with her. Here’s mine.,” She threw five dollars in assorted coins at the man causing them to fall to the ground. He greedily bent over and searched the dirt for the few coins. Cursing as he did so.
The one who appeared to be the ring leader came around to see what the fuss was about.
“Shorty, get that strong box and let's get moving. These people are wasting our time and this is penny ante stuff.” Giving orders as he reached them, he eyed Emily.
“Well, well, what do we have here?”
She looked about twenty-three, he figured older than most, but still young enough. A fast buck is a buck. He ever so slowly worked his horse up close to her. He never took his eyes off her. Emily felt the hair at the back of her neck tingle. He moved in between the others and the stagecoach. Leaving her now stuck between the horse and wagon. Large frightened eyes watched as his arm snaked out and he grabbed her by her hair, then yanked her up across his lap and saddle. In an instant he rode riding hard, and headed south. ***
