He stood up in the stirrups and' tried to find a more comfortable position. Sin twisted around on her horse, her tired face pale in the moonlight. "Something wrung, honey?" "1 was just wishing this horse and I would have a meeting oJ minds," he called. "Wc'vt me! every place else." Beyond her, Trim halted his horse and said, "Not so much talking, please.
