"Now," he smirked, taking a handful of her hair, and pulling her head up. "Do as I say, or I'll put a bullet in your brain. I know you understand me! Pleasure me," he commanded, releasing her to reach for his belt. Drawing her leg back for a strong side kick, the Indian connected hard with the man's groin, and he doubled over in agony.

Struggling to her feet, she reached for her knife, and glared down at the white man, angry. Startled when the entrance door was flung open, she readied herself for a fight when the Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница other men stormed in, concerned about the commotion.

"Get her!" ordered Gil, still on the ground, and the men slowly surrounded her, drawing their guns. The tall Indian didn't notice the man behind her, and soon everything went black.

When she awoke, it was dusk, and she found herself tied up once again, this time with more rope. The knots were weak, but the cord had been reinforced, so as to discourage her from cutting loose. She knew if she had enough time, she'd be able to slip free of the knots, and then release her Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница feet, which were bound at the ankles.

"Now, this time, you'll hold still," said Gil, entering the tent, unbuttoning his shirt as he walked. "And if you don't…" he growled, grabbing a fistful of her hair, turning her head to the left, proceeded to rip her right ear-drop out of her ear. The woman clenched her teeth as she felt the blood trickle down her neck and shoulder, and glared at the man in front of her, but did not cry out.

"If you screw with me, bitch, your ear will be the last of your worries Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница," he spat. Grabbing her knife, he cut the ropes at her feet, grabbing her ankles and spreading her legs. Slithering towards her, he breathed foul air into her face, and she cringed as he spoke.

"You make a move, and I'll slit your throat with your own knife," he threatened, holding the blade against her neck. Working her hands free, Blue Fire nodded, and attempted to look submissive.

Starting at her feet, Gil snaked a hand up her pants, knife still against the Indian's tender flesh. Just as she knew he'd have to, he removed the knife to Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница work on taking off his own pants, and Blue Fire made her move. Capturing the man's head between her calves, she rolled onto her stomach, and snapped his neck in one swift move.

Recovering her knife, she got to her feet, and steadied herself when one of Gil's buddies came running in.

"Hey!" he cried, drawing his pistol, and cocking the hammer. With a growl, Blue Fire threw the knife, hitting the white man directly in the chest. His gun went off, burying a bullet in her thigh as he fell to the ground. It took Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница all of the Indian's strength to get up off the floor where she'd fallen, retrieve her knife, and cut her way out of the back of the canvas tent.

Cutting the rope that tied her horse, she shimmied onto his back, and urged him away from the camp as fast as he could go. The white men were soon on her trail, firing shotguns as they rode, one eventually hitting Moonbeam, and felling the large animal in an instant.

With the strength she had left, Blue Fire wandered into the forest, stumbled down a hill, and Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница lay in a ravine, certain her own death was just a matter of time.

"Are you okay?" asked Alicia, wondering about the Indian's faraway look. The woman nodded, and finished her soup in a hurry, reminding Alicia they needed to check the roof of the barn before it rained, praying the blonde didn't ask anything else.

* * * * *

The days passed, with Blue Fire checking Mystic's foal several times a day, making sure the young horse would not have a relapse of the cough. Each report of good health she made to Alicia made the blonde smile, which in Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница turn made Blue Fire glad she'd been able to heal the young colt.

One night, after a long day spent grooming the horses and making sure their feed was fresh, and refilling their buckets with clean water, the two women sat at the kitchen table, eating a stew Blue Fire had prepared for dinner.

There was silence for a while, both enjoying the meal, before Alicia couldn't stand the quiet any longer. She was a talker, by nature.



"Blue Fire, can I ask you something?" The Indian nodded. "I know you've been teaching me Apache, like Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница I've been teaching you to read, and I really appreciate that," she said, and smiled a little to herself. The one or two hours Alicia had set aside to teach and be taught were going well, and she enjoyed the time immensely.

"But, do you remember what the Indians called America? I mean, before the white men came?" clarified the curious blonde, but she was met with silence.

"Yes," said the Indian, at last, in a tone that Alicia couldn't identify. "Ours."

The blonde started - she hadn't been expecting that answer. Deciding not to press, she Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница simply nodded, and hoped the tall Indian wasn't angry with her.

"Sorry," she said, quietly, and Blue Fire looked apologetic.

"No," said the woman, "it is okay. I did not mean to, as you say, snap at you. You may ask me whatever you want, Alicia. It is only right, since you are helping me so much with your language.

"Can we read later tonight?" she asked, hopefully, and Alicia smiled.

She was tired, but knew the woman enjoyed the book, "The Last of the Mohicans" by John Fenimore Cooper, so she nodded. "Sure," she agreed, taking their Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница bowls to the sink. "Thank you, Robyn. The stew was delicious. Why don't you find the book, and I'll be out there in a little while," she offered, and Blue Fire nodded, leaving quickly to look for the novel.

The blonde sighed as she sat down at the now clear kitchen table, and placed a stack of papers in front of her chair. They were bills and debts she still hadn't paid. She had money from the yearlings she'd sold, and added it up in her head.

Four hundred dollars short, she realized Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница, tears coming to her eyes. If I don't start doing something fast, I'm going to lose the Ranch! I promised Matt I'd keep it up, Alicia remembered, thinking of her late brother, but how can I, when the money's gone?

Blue Fire came in to see what was taking Alicia so long, and was startled to find tears falling from the woman's green eyes. Going to her side, she knelt down beside her chair, and put a hand on her shoulder.

"Alicia, what is wrong?" she asked, concerned. The blonde just shook her head, and pointed Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница to the papers. Blue Fire frowned. "To Jake Salone, one hundred dollars," she read, carefully. "Who is Matthew Winters?"

"My brother," explained Alicia, drying her tears as best she could. "These are the loans he had to take out in order to get the ranch, and the first dozen horses. Since he didn't get them paid before he got sick, it's up to me, and I just can't do it!" she cried. "I don't have the money, and I don't have the colts!"

Robyn sighed as she gave the blonde a quick Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница hug, and then allowed the woman to cry on her shoulder. "It's okay," she assured her. "I will think of something. Come, we will go to bed, now."

"Oh, I'm sorry, Robyn!" said Alicia, sniffling. "You wanted to read tonight!"

"It is all right," she smiled. "We will read tomorrow. Now we rest. Good night, Alicia," said Blue Fire, as the woman walked into her bedroom, and the Indian lay down on the couch.

I must think of a way for Alicia to get the money she needs, she thought. Praying for guidance, she soon fell asleep, and dreamt of Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница horses.

CHAPTER SIX

Alicia was surprised to awake the next morning, and find herself the first one up. Hearing nothing from the living room, she dressed quickly, and wandered out to the sofa, where she found Blue Fire. The Indian was indeed awake, but was kneeling on the ground, her head bowed.

The blonde tried not to startle her. "What are you doing?" she asked, softly.

Blue eyes opened, and locked with her own. "Do you not pray?" questioned the tall woman, confused. She'd begun to practice the white man's way of praying, quietly and Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница without a ceremony, not long after her Grandfather died, because he encouraged her to learn about their culture. He said it would be useful, since the pale-faces seemed to be spreading like wildfire in the land they once called their own…

"Well, yes, but not very often," admitted the rancher, bringing the Indian back to the present.

Robyn frowned. "You do not thank the Great Spirit for the gift of life, or the food we eat, or the sun that warms our day?" she asked. "You do not ask the Giver of Life for good health, and safe travel Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница in the days to come?"

Alicia shrugged. "We call our Great Spirit 'God'," she explained. "And yes, I pray occasionally, but I don't mention all of those things. I guess I should."

"How is it that you have rain if you do not pray for it?"

The blonde decided she really did not want to get into a religious debate with her friend, so simply replied, "I think He just sees what we need from His place in Heaven, and helps us. Speaking of rain, it's starting to drizzle out there. How about a quick breakfast? Then I'll Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница clean out the stalls," she said, and Blue Fire agreed, rising to her feet in one swift movement.

After a healthy portion of warm oatmeal for each woman, Blue Fire offered to do a check of the fences, and Alicia went to muck out the stalls.

"Blue Fire, maybe you should wear my brother's clothes today," the blonde suggested. "I wouldn't want you to get your own dirty, or muddy, if you have another choice."

With a sigh, Blue Fire agreed, and changed quickly, before going on to the day's work. The tall Indian was gone Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница for a while, finding a patch of wire that needed repair, and watched as a herd of mustangs frolicked in the soft rain.

Mustangs, she thought, with a smile, as an idea came to her.

Meanwhile, the blonde was emptying damp hay and manure into the forest as fertilizer, taking it out by the bucketful. By the time she was only half done, the rain was threatening to let up, but she was already soaked. She knew, judging by the cold wind, that her wet clothes would only serve to catch her a cold, but she had to clean Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница the stalls, or the horses would get sick.

Thrush was not an illness she wanted to deal with, since it was preventable. Keep a clean stall, and the horses' hooves won't get dirty, and their feet won't get infected. If they get infected, it could lead to thrush, which was known to cause lameness if not treated soon after.

All I need is a lame horse, she sighed, sneezing as she filled up the next load.

She was almost finished when Blue Fire came riding in, and came to screeching halt when she saw that Alicia was Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница still out, working in the barn, dripping wet. The drizzle had stopped a few minutes ago, but the wind was still cold, and Robyn didn't like the way the woman was coughing and sneezing.

"Alicia!" she called, entering the barn. "Go into the house, and get into bed. I will finish here." The blonde looked like she was going to protest, so Blue Fire continued, in a softer tone. "You will get sick if you do not go inside, Alicia. Please, so you will be well. I will be in to make you tea," she Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница added, and the blonde sighed, handing her the bucket as she walked into the house, shivering the entire way.

Ten minutes later, the tall Indian entered the house, running a hand through her hair, still damp from the rain earlier in the day. Checking up on Alicia, she found the woman huddled under her covers, wearing a dry nightgown.

"Alicia, I think I have an idea to help with money," she said, and green eyes brightened, urging her to continue. "The wild mustangs are on your property often. There are many of them, and I can train some for Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница you, to breed and sell. More horses is what you need, yes?"

The blonde smiled. "That's terrific, Blue Fire!" she said. "You're sure it won't hurt the herd to lose a few?" Robyn nodded. "Okay, then. Thank you." When she began to cough, the Indian remembered why she had come into the room in the first place - to check on the rancher.

"I will fix your tea," she promised, making sure Alicia didn't need anything before then, and walked into the kitchen. As she filled the kettle with water, and began to build the fire, she Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница reached for her knife when she heard someone else come in the house.

"Who are you?" she demanded, to the young blonde man who walked in, carrying a package under his arm.

"Brian," he said, tipping the brim of his hat to her, his brown eyes sparkling. "I came to see how Alicia was doing with all this rain. Who are you?" he asked.

"My name is Robyn," she said. "I work for Alicia." This must be Daniel's brother, she thought, eyeing him carefully.

"Where is she?"

Blue Fire raised an eyebrow at him, still cautious of Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница the lad. "In her room," she said, and watched him go, taking off his hat as he walked down the hallway. Knocking on the door, he apparently got an answer, and entered the room.

Minutes later, as Robyn worked on starting the fire to heat the water, the young boy left the house, looking quite unhappy. Her suspicions piqued when the boy did not leave on his horse, nor in the direction of town, the Indian made sure the water for the tea would be all right if she left for a while, and headed outside.

Blue Fire frowned Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница as she followed the man out of Alicia's house, and to a small place hidden in the forest. The brush had been cleared away, and even in the darkness, the Indian could see the shape of another person waiting in the shadows, but was unable to tell who it was.

As Brian hurried into the clearing, Robyn climbed into a nearby tree to remain hidden, and listened carefully.

"Well?" asked the man in the shadows; his voice was vaguely familiar, but the Indian was unable to place it.

The boy hung his head. "Things aren't going exactly as Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница planned," he admitted, sadly. "I thought she'd have given up by now, but that damned woman put a glitch in things! If I could just get rid of her, it'd be so much easier," he complained.

"How is she a problem?" the man asked.

"Alicia says she's going to start bringing in more horses, which means more foals, and more money. At this rate, she might just pay off her debts!"

"We can't have that," mused the other. "The Boss wants this land, and since she won't sell it, the only way to Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница do that is to make her lose it. Find a way to get rid of a few horses, the young ones, and make it look like an accident. I'll take care of the other problem," he said, and Brian nodded.

"Okay," he agreed. "I think I know how to do it. I found out from Lauren that she feeds the foals a different feed than the others. Horses don't take too well to poisoned oats," he grinned.

The man nodded. "Do it," he ordered, "but make sure it works. I don't want her bringing in any Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница more money right now. The Boss is pissed enough as it is, not having his land already. Understand?"

"Sure," Brian said.

"Now, go." Both men left, and if it hadn't been so late, and Blue Fire hadn't been worried about Alicia, she would have followed the mysterious man to a lighted area. But, instead, she headed back to the Ranch to check up on the ill rancher, determined to find out the man's identity at another time, and to remember Brian's intent to harm the horses.

Robyn made sure she returned first, so Brian wouldn't Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница know she'd been out, and pretended to be heating the tea for Alicia when the man walked in.

"You may go," she told him, stopping him in his tracks. "I will take care of Alicia on my own."

"Look, it's pretty obvious you don't like me, and I don't like you, but Alicia's my friend, and I want to help her. If you're going to take care of her, then at least let me take care of the horses, so you can concentrate on her," he offered.

He's good, thought the Indian. If Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница I hadn't heard him, I'd almost be convinced he really wanted to help. I am going to have to be very careful with this one…

"No, thank you," she replied. "I can take care of it. I will tell Alicia you volunteered to help," she added, eyeing him carefully. "I must take her the tea, now. Rest is good for her, so I will have time to tend to the horses later, while she sleeps."

The man glared at her, but couldn't think up another excuse, so briskly walked out of the house. As Blue Fire strained Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница to see through the dark, he entered the barn, and didn't leave for quite a while. Making a mental note to check the feed for any signs of being tainted, Robyn walked down the hallway, carrying the cup of warm tea into Alicia's bedroom, where the woman was wide awake.

"Thank you," said the blonde, and coughed into her hand, wincing at the pain it caused in her chest.

"You should sleep," said Blue Fire, giving the woman her sagebrush tea, which the Indian knew was good for healing colds; it caused the person Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница to sweat out the illness. She'd added some sugar, so it wouldn't be as bitter for the blonde to swallow. "Drink, and sleep, and you will feel better in the morning."

"I dozed off a little," she admitted, "but not for very long." With the cup of tea in one hand, the rancher squirmed in bed, trying to get comfortable. Each coughing fit caused her muscles to tighten, and so now her back was sore.

Blue Fire was going to ask what was wrong, when she happened to notice a small package of food on the bedside table Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница.

"What is that?" she asked, pointing.

Alicia followed her finger, and smiled a little. "Brian left me some cornbread. He said his mother baked it," she said. "It was warm when I ate the first little bit, but I'm afraid it's probably cold by now."

"How much did you eat?" asked the Indian, her senses alert.

"Not much," shrugged the blonde. "Maybe half. Why? Do you want some?"

The tall woman shook her head. "No, thank you," she said, motioning for Alicia to drink her tea. If her suspicions were correct, Alicia had just eaten half a loaf Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница of tainted cornbread, and would be sick by morning. She doubted the man had put in enough to kill her, just to make her ill, but she wasn't sure.

All she knew was that she wasn't going to mention anything to Alicia until she was sure, because if she piqued the blonde's suspicions, it was possible she wouldn't be able to find out anything else about the man or the mysterious partner he was meeting with after dark. And in order to stop them, she had to find out exactly what they wanted, how they wanted Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница to do it, and who all they were working with.

Just as she'd hoped, not long after Alicia finished her tea, she fell sound asleep. Taking the empty cup from her relaxed hands, Blue Fire walked into the kitchen, and decided it was time for her to go to bed as well. Stretching out on the couch, she kept an ear open, should Alicia call her for anything, and fell into a dreamless slumber.

Later that night, the Indian was startled awake. Listening hard, she frowned when everything was silent. She was about to shrug it Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница off, and go back to sleep, when she heard Alicia call her name, frightened.

"Robyn!" cried the woman. "Blue Fire, no, don't!"

Leaping off the couch, Blue Fire ran into the woman's bedroom, ready for anything - except a nightmare. That was not what she'd been anticipating. The small blonde was tossing fitfully under her covers, a cold sweat covering her skin, her hands balled into fists, defending herself from the inner demons that plagued her. Robyn noted her rapid breathing, and knew she had to wake her with care.

"Alicia," she said, softly, approaching the Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница woman's bedside. "Alicia, wake up." Placing a gentle hand on the woman's shoulder, she continued to talk quietly, until the blonde awoke with a start.

"Robyn?" asked Alicia, as her cloudy green eyes tried to focus. The Indian nodded, and started to move away in order to retrieve a cool cloth to help with the fever, but Alicia gripped her arm.

"Don't go," she pleaded. "Please, don't leave me." The small voice was hoarse, and scared.

"I won't," Blue Fire reassured her, sitting in the chair she had positioned next to her bed. "Can Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница you tell me what you dreamt?" Robyn knew that in her own culture dreams were important, and assumed it was the same for the white man. Although she had never been very good at interpreting them for herself, if Alicia desired, she could find someone who could.

The woman nodded, and made sure the tall Indian's hand was clutched tightly in her own before she spoke.

"I was standing in a green field," she began, "and the sun was shining. There were trees, and grass, and horses, and everything was perfect. You walked up beside me, and we were just looking Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница at the blue sky," she decided not to add the part where Blue Fire had wrapped her arms around her waist, "when all of a sudden, everything turned dark. The sky was gray, and the grass died, and the horses disappeared, and the trees were bare… it was as if everything just stopped.

"Some men came up beside us, four or five, I guess. They were white, except one, who was Apache. But they had guns, and they came to take you away," sniffled the woman. "You just turned and walked away, you didn't even put Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница up a fight, and I was all alone."

Robyn said nothing; she still feared the day the white men, or her own people, would find her. She knew they would, at some point, and she'd have to leave. She had no doubt there was truth to Alicia's dream. The only question was: how long did she have?

"I will be right back," she said, standing. "I am only going to get a cool cloth to help you. You are sick, and have a fever." Reluctantly, the blonde nodded, and the tall Indian left the room for only a Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница minute, before returning with two bowls. One was filled with fresh water and a rag, while the other was empty, sure to be used if Alicia was as sick as Blue Fire suspected her to be.

"Rest," said the Indian, placing the refreshing cloth on the ill woman's warm forehead. "I will fix more tea for you." The blonde just nodded, enjoying the nice feeling of being taken care of and didn't say a word when Blue Fire walked out of the room.

Returning with the cup of tea a while later, the Indian was deeply Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница bothered to find the young rancher emptying the contents of her stomach into the basin provided. Each time she would stop to breathe, her stomach would rebel. This continued for a long while, long enough for Blue Fire to have to reheat the tea, before Alicia was too weak to even hold herself up, much less throw up.

With a small whimper of pain that comes with a sick stomach, the blonde leaned back into her pillow, not feeling any better.

"Tea?" offered the tall woman, but the blonde shook her head.

"I can't," she protested, weakly. Not only was Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница her stomach objecting against it, she wasn't sure she had enough strength to sit up.

The tall woman sighed, but nodded, and rinsed the cloth on the flushed forehead, gently replacing it in an attempt to lower the woman's fever.

"You should rest," suggested Blue Fire.

"I don't even know if I can do that," sighed Alicia. "I don't have anything left in my stomach, but it still won't calm down. How can I rest when I'm freezing?"

"That is the fever," said the Indian. "Try to sleep. I will Disclaimer: The characters in here probably remind you of some very talented ladies, but other than that, they're mine. Plot, names, on and on. Let me know if you want to borrow anything. 5 страница stay here," she assured the woman, remembering her dream. Green eyes closed, and within twenty minutes, the ill rancher was asleep, soft snores filling the air.

Brian would poison his friend for this Shadow Man, thought Robyn, angrily. And this Shadow Man would tell him to do it, for his "Boss". He would make her ill for whatever he receives in return. For as much as she ate, she may be sick for a long time, but if she ate it all, it may have bedded her for more than a week.

Or worse.
