She also had more photos of the estate from various...Read On
As Holly sat and sipped on her champagne she was amazed at how her hearing and vision had expanded. She could see the cards of the poker player that sat with his back to her and he was better than half way across the room.

The ranch hands took on their new duties without complaint; spurred on by the extra pay they would receive and being allowed to sleep in the next day when they drew the overnight watch.

For the next few nights he labored...Read On

He arrived at the offices and walked in where...Read On
