The Way West (1955)

chance, but still he was relieved that Brownie wasn't following after her.
" I said to my woman today, 'y God, we're a-goin' to make it. Fer a time I didn't know, fer a fact."
Evans tried to imagine what McBee's face was like under the mat of whiskers. Slack-jawed, probably, and loose-lipped. Weak. And yet there was something tough about him, as there was often about ornery people, something that kept him going, something tougher than the stuff of Turleys.
" Yes, sir, we're a-goin' to make it." McBee grinned, showing teeth broken and dirty beyond believing, and bobbed his head.
Watching him, hearing him, Evans knew. This was it, plain in the words, the smiles, the bobs of the head. McBee meant them to be admiring. McBee was courting the captain. He was honey-fuggling, wanting the importance of the shadow of importance. He would have something especial to say; he would have something to bring up-but this was it.
" We always were going to make it," Evans said.
" That is as may be. Anyhow, we are now."
Evans didn't give him an answer. He knew what he ought to do. He ought to tell McBee to go to hell; but it was a hard thing. Somehow a man balked at slapping the compliment out of another's mouth. Not that it was the compliment, either. Compliments didn't fool him. He just hated to speak blunt to friendliness, even if the friendliness was only a show.
McBee said, "I been meanin' to tell you, I don't hold no hard feelin's. About the dog and all. Nary one."
" All right. None here, either. Over that."
