Willow Creek Ranch
Black Mountain, North Carolina
“Oh,” the voice called into her darkness, and Dollie attempted to open
her eyes. However, it was almost impossible to do so as her eyelids appeared
“Miss? Are you awake?” The voice carried the wisdom of a long life,
and when Dollie managed to open her eyes, she saw a kind face peer down at
her and knew at once it belonged to the voice. She wasn’t sure why, but the
round face with the high cheekbones and the fine lines that ate into the ruddy
skin looked just like the face that went with a melodic, soft yet determined
voice. Her black hair was pulled back into a severe bun, and Dollie saw white
and silver streaks running through it.
“Where… am…I?” her heart pounded. Was she back at the saloon? Had
Louis caught her after all? The soft mattress she was laying on had allowed
her body to sink into it, and the warmth of the blanket that covered her body
indicated she’d been here a while. Beyond that, she could not see much other
than a bank of three windows at the other end of the darkened room. Two
windows had been closed with heavy curtains, and the third only allowed
streaks of sunlight to enter.
Dollie had managed to ask her question, but the words were a chore to
get out, and as she spoke, she felt her lips crack with dryness. The woman,
dressed in a plain green blouse with gray buttons that ran down the length of
it, and a blue, sturdy-looking skirt, shifted, and her slender arm disappeared
out of view.
“Here, have some water,” the woman said, holding a plain metal cup to
her lips. Dollie forced her body up, but a burning pain ripped through her
eliciting a gasp. It was only then, when she fell into the pillows again, that
she understood the sound she’d heard, the little gasp of pain that had woken
her not been produced by a stranger but by her.
“Now, now,” the woman said, and a chair screeched across the floor.
“The doctor said you probably pulled a few muscles when you fell off the
horse, in addition to the other injuries to your face. Gotta be careful. Let’s set
you up. Nathan, come on here and help me.”
Nathan? Who is Nathan? Dollie’s mind roared awake at once, and the
memory of her escape rushed back to her. She and Lisa had run. Lisa! What
had happened to her? Where was she? And where was Dollie?
A man stepped into view behind the woman, and instantly, Dollie
lurched forward, ringing the intense pain. “No, no… I don’t want to go
back,” she exclaimed, the panic echoing in her ears. She shrunk back and
pulled the blanket to her chin as a terrifying shudder went through her.
