It was a rather boring day at the general store. There wasn't anything new to choose from. I went to the bank and made my deposit and was on my way back to the saloon when a poster at the Sheriff's office caught my eye. The face in the poster sure looked familiar. It wasn't an actual photograph but a drawing. I've seen him before but who is it? The name said Ryan Simmons but it wasn't a familiar name to me. Ryan was wanted for bank robbery.

As a walked back to the saloon, an uneasy feeling came over me.

I watched Susan leave through the front door, she was carrying a purse that looked like it could use a little liberation. I finished my pancakes and headed up the stairs. Stopping in my room for a second, I pulled a small wooden tube out of my pack. I looked into it and blew out some dust. Inside the tube were two mirrors; this thing was great for seeing around corners or under doors. I made a quick stop by Ms. Jones' door and knelt down. After a few adjustments I was looking inside for anything good. There was a bed, a dresser, and a desk; off in the back there seemed to be another room. I adjusted the mirrors again and checked the walls. There were two pictures, a window, a mirror and what appeared to be a jewelry box on top of the dresser.

Before I left I tried the doorknob. It was locked and appeared to be of much heavier construction than the ones on the guest room doors.

Back in my room I made a small list of things I had seen. The two pictures and the mirror could be hiding a safe and the dresser may have some valuables. Also that room in the back could be of interest. The jewelery box was as good as stolen. I tucked the list away into a pocket and headed back downstairs.

"Gun!" I shouted "Shot!" I continued "There was! And loud noises and there and...."

Moments later, after regathering my coherency I tried again

"There was a gun fired outside."

"Let me get this straight, son." I said, coming to my senses. "You woke me up to tell me a gun has been fired in a frontier town, in which not one day ago we witnessed no less than 3 bar brawls, 2 showdowns and a bank robbery?
Oh well. Now I'm up i maht as well go down for some breakfast. I smell bacon!"
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

"Aren't you the least bit concerned about what happened?" I said, although it was blindingly apparent he wasn't.
Despite being unnerved by the gunshot, I followed Krakow down to the Saloon below our rooms.

Although this one was in good condition, I could tell the Saloon we had been in the other night was the main gathering place for the town.

The floors were oak and a couple of portraits were hung on the walls. Cobwebs had gathered over some of the various booths, but most were clear of dust.
Behind the bar, a generally thin looking person was hunched over a stovetop, frying bacon.

I almost instantly recognised him as the man who'd been holding the gun outside.

"Good mohnin' my good suh" I addressed the thin man "Ah believe when ah paid foh mah room the young lady said somethin' about breakfast bein' included?"

The old man emmited a sort of disgruntled "humph" and transferred some bacon from his frying pan to a dusty plate and thrust it in my direction.

"Much obliged suh" I said, choosing to ignore his obvious resentment of me.

Although I was hungry, my better senses told me to go against asking the possible killer if he could spare any more for breakfast.

"I'm going to step out for some air." I attempted to say. I was almost sure my nerves made it come out more like  "Iminagstfpar" or something similar. Eigther way I didn't really wait inside to see if the message regestered.

The streets seemed empty save for me. From where I was I could see the town's main saloon, down the road.

Looking down the road I also noticed that I didn't happen to be the only one out their at the time.
I could make out a figure walking back toward the saloon from someplace, but I couldn't make out his details.

I took a small portable spyglass out of my back pocket. It was a memmento given to me by a former doctor, (that is in fact a very different story I won't go into) and it came in handy sometimes.
Looking through the lense I could see the figure was the man we had been playing cards with the other night.
