CHAPTER 12 - SHOW-DOWN

seen nothing more of Callahan nor of anyone else. The night was silent, brooding, the moonlight fitful. The moon had gone in for a little while Rocky was moving towards the shack. Now, reaching the wooden wall, it came out again full, but crouched between the wall and the outcrop, which nearly touched it, the boy was under cover.
Near him was a window. He moved to it as he heard from the front of the building the sound of a door creaking open. He peered through the broken window. The moonlight fell in a broad swathe across the floor, for the door now stood open. It fell on the huddled figure which lay on the floor in a corner. The blanket covering the figure revealed that the man was an Indian.
The moonlight also fell on another man, just entered, a man with a gun in his hand-a man who moved swiftly across the room towards the motionless figure, which stirred, however, and evidently was conscious.
Rocky recognised the white man all right. Then he heard him speak.

He brought up his gun, aimed it at the lying figure. Even as he did so a door in one of the end walls burst open and there was Bill Rankin-there was a double explosion, the two shots so close together that they sounded almost like one. The man who had talked to Quietta had swung round in a flash, his gun barking even as Bill's Colt spoke.

Bill swayed, for he was hit. The other man turned, making not for the outer door but for the window where Rocky stood bemused. He crashed through the flimsy slats-and then Rocky was fighting for his life, the man on top of him.
The boy tried desperately to break the vicious grip on his throat-his senses were reeling. Then abruptly the man fell back. Somebody had attacked him as he knelt on Rocky. Rocky staggered to his feet-he saw his old enemy Bud Werner grappling with the guy, saw him hit out viciously, saw the man stumble back-but then he was on Bud again.
Rocky sprang to Bud's assistance, bewildered, his brain unable to cope with events, unable to make any
