Barrios writes winning story for fiction contest Entry captures Sesquicentennial spirit THE BAYTOWN SUN Sunday. April 27, 19*6 7-C ^EDITOR'S NOTE: This is Becky Barrios' first-place entry for high school students in the Texas fiction writing contest sponsored by Epsilon Psi Chapter, Delta Gamma Gamma. • The day the news that Santa Anna wuz leadin' his army toward New Washington, the whole town changed. Nobody trusted nobody no mo' Everybody wuz 'fraid that other people wuz spies for the Mexicans. My master, Colonel Morgan, wuz away in Galveston commandin' rebel forces. They wuz fightin' for the Mexicans. Me and the rest of the Colonel's household staff wuz stayin' at his pjace while he wuz gone. Colonel Morgan comes from North Carolina and he done got lots of money from sellin' land. • Emily D. West is the younges' of Colonel Morgan's servant girls and most men think she's be the purdies* girl in town. All of the Colonel's servant girls took the las' name of Morgan. We ain't slaves or nothin', but the Colonel wanted us to, and he bin so good to us that we do anythin' to please him. Emily and me wuz friends way 'fore Santa Anna come to New Washington. After his troops arrived at the San Jacinto River. Emily started actin' diffrent. She don' hardly ever stay home and there be plenty of rumors gojn' 'round that she bin seen goin' lo that Mexican camp to see Santa Anna hisself! I don' know if I believe them rumors •bout poor Emily or not. 1 knows she's far from bein' an angel, but she ain' no traitor. She wouldn' fall for no Mexican Gener'l no matter how romantic he wuz! 1 can still 'member the day that Colonel Morgan brung Emily home. She couldn' bin a day- over fifteen. She bin livin' with that man Lorenzo de Zavala and his wife who come to Texas from Mexico. From what I hear, he wuz mighty 'potent down there in Mexico. He wuz even close friends with Santa Anna. He come to Texas after him and Santa Anna had some kinda dis'greement. Well, Colonel Morgan took a likin' to Emily right away. He be nice 'nuf to me but I ain' no lovely by no means and that chile had somethin' 'bout her that wuz diffrent. She had guts. She had a way with men that I done never hope to have. I never seed nothin' like Emily befo'. She could sure 'nuf talk her way out of or into anythin'. I wouldn' never admit it 'cause I guess I be too proud but I really admire and r'spect Emily. So when I heard the gossip 'bout Emily and Santa Anna, I don' believe it at all. I hear that Gener'l Sam Houston is on his way to attack Santa Anna's troops. It could get purdy messy from what they says. Santa Anna's army s'ppos- ed to be the stronges' army 'round. When me and Emily be goin' to town today to git Mizz Morgan's shoppin' done, some Mexican soldiers started talkin' to Emily. I didn' think nothin' of it 'cause that chile's like a magnet when there be men •round. They follow her 'round and almost wurship her like she be a god or somethin'. When she totd me how some new Mexican gener'l named Cos wuz comin' to New Washington with mo' men. I wuz puzzled 'bout how she knows that. She saw that I looked kinda s'prised 'cause she tried to make up some 'scuses. She say them soldiers wuz drunk and just told her. I don' believe her and she knows it. One night. I think it wuz April 20, Emily come to me and told me that she bin seein' Gener'l Santa Anna to get information for Gener'l Houston. She say I BECKY BARRIOS, 15, Is a 10th- grade student at Ross S. Sterling High School. She wrote this story of Emily Morgan in a class taught by Carolyn Saunders. that all them times she had snuck 'round that she be either goin' to a secret meetin' with Sam Houston or seein' Santa Anna. She even told me 'bout Santa Anna's fine clothes. She say he had carpets in his tent and a piano! 1 wuz so startled that I couldn' talk. She told me that she be leavin' Texas soon 'cause she be almos' through with her job here. On April 21, 'round four o'clock in the afternoon, plenty of commotion and gunfire broke out on the banks of the San Jacinto River. Gener'l Houston done caught Santa Anna off guard and the Texans beat up them Mexicans. I didn' see Emily that day or ever again. I just figured her job she wuz doin' for Gener'l Houston wuz done. I still hear rumors 'bout Emily. Some folks say she wuz a traitor, but I kno'ws diffrent. Emily Morgan wuz a Texan and I knows she always will be.
