She walked over to the (.able and turned, up the lamp wick. Freckles sprinkled hur short nose and checks. When sbe pulled ofT the man's hat she was wearing, her hair was the color of burnished copper. She shed the yellow slicker and she had on a gingham- checked dress. Her gray eyes were dark-shadowed as she stared at the cowpuncher's bandaged arm. The woman and the cowpuncher stood facing each other. "Why?" Her voice was tense. "Why?" she asked again. "He was cnld-deckin' me." The cowman's voice went back to its soft drawl. "That's reason enough, Kit." Before she could say anything else, he motioned with his gun toward Uoc under the bunk "You can come out now, Doc,'* he said, and'then added to Kit; *!\Ve ain't alone." John Sand (elt foolish as he crawled oiU from under the bunk and brushed the dust off his clothing. "This fs Kit Carson, Doc," the cowboy was explaining. "She's named after the famous trapper." Then he turned lo Kit. "Doc's just starting business here." The girJ held out her hand and it felt cold us ice to Doc as he took it. "I'm John Sand." He managed a smile. He felt Ihc impact of her steady gray eyes thnt had the color of smoke with the warmth of a liddcn fire beneath. usEy , pulled back a bed larp ind was digging into a canvas warsack. He turned his back on them while he pulled on an undershirt and a clean blue flannel shirt •md. tucked in the shirt tails with one hand, lie reached for his hat and pulled it down across his thick, wiry, black hair. He put on a saddle slicker. "1 reckon I'd better pull out," fie grinned (tally. "I want you two to be good friends. Kit'll see to it that you don't starve to death. Doc. She owns the hotel and the dinin* room." He explained to Kit: "I loJd Doc to get rid of all this clutter and use the Whitehouse for his ollice. There's a shed "out back where he can put the lilier. ft'll make Doe a good office till lie can move into somethin' more stylish." He held out his hand towards the girl, who look it and went with him lo the door. * • * JOHN SAND turned his back on them and rolled down his shirt sleeves and buttoned his cuffs. He gol very busy pulling things back in the black bag, whistling tunelessly between his teeth until he heard the man's voice lifted above the low tone he was using in talking lo the girl over by the door "You ran turn around now. Doc. Quit whistling that hungry lune. I'm sure obliged [or whal you done and I'll pay my bill the ncxl time f get to town." He grinned faintly. "Turn the lamp down a little till I get oul the door." The girl closed the door after Dusty. She hesitated a long mo- ment and then slid the bar In >lacc. John Sand turned the lamp- ,vick higher. They stood racing one another n awkward silence. "I just got oft Ihe train," h$ said amely. "It was a wild west re- eptiou for a newcomer. I've seen wounded and dead men, but this s the first shooting I ever wit- essed. I guess it was Wolf Point's nitiafion of n tenderfoot." He realized he had said the wrong thing in his embarrassed efTort to make conversation. Kit tat down in a chair and put her lands to her face and a rasping sob lore ilself from her light aching throat and then the tears came. * * • JOHN SAND had training and •J common sense enough to leave her alone until she had cried herself out. He look a clean folded handkerchief from his coat pocket and handed it to her. U I haven't bawled like this since wns a kid in pigtails." She smiled faintly. "And in front of a stranger at that." She looked up at him. Somehow," she said slowly, "I don't seem lo inind it a bit. You must be a good doctor, John Sand." : "Hardly. I'm a green hand, fresh out of medical school. 'I had a year to go to finish my internship—when something happened. 'I saved out a hundred dollars and laid what was left of my roll on the counter and told the ticket agent lo figure out how far west it would take me. His pencil stopped at a dol on the railway map. The dot marked Wolf Point. Montana." "Dusty Rhodes was your first patient, iKcn?" she asked. "Here at Wolf Point. I delivered a baby on the train." His smile lost its bitter twist and the armth came back into his brown eyes.
