CHAPTER 5 - FOOTHILL TRAIL

light. Bill knew then that it was Ned Duvene crouched there by the rock, for Ned always wore a white neck-scarf.
The masked man came to a stop behind a boulder. He crouched there-and then his gun came up. Bill's own rod cracked even as the guy drew a bead on Ned. Bill had arrived on the scene at the right moment.
The range was too long for effective shooting, especially in the deceptive light of the moon, but it wasn't essential to bring the guy down. The shot would in any case give him something to think about, would upset his intention to get Ned.
It achieved this. The bullet flaked a chip from the rock a foot from his head. He swung round, dived for other cover-and Ned Duvene at the same instant jerked round. Bill fired again, but it was necessarily wild shooting, for the bandit was now out of sight. He had thought and moved fast. Bill wasn't likely to get another chance to take him by surprise. It was unfortunate that the range had been too long to make sure of winging him, but it couldn't be helped. Bill had been compelled to intervene, if only to warn Ned.
This had been achieved. Ned Duvene was now out of sight, too, well under cover. Not often was he foxed, but certainly that had happened this evening. If Bill hadn't taken a hand, the bandit would probably have got him.
Bill stayed where he was. He reckoned it was better to do that than move down the slope and maybe get tangled up with Ned who couldn't know that he had come. Also from where he was he commanded an excellent view over the ground at the bottom of the slope, could perhaps keep tabs on the bandit.
He failed in this, however. He saw not another indication that anyone was on the move down there.
