The dusk was angry, and the sun was letting go of its grip on the land, getting ready to divide itself by night. The sand of the desert began to shed its heat in the setting sun. The ground was still and the air was quiet as everything that consumed oxygen would have begun to fall asleep had it not been for her coming. She was coming, and she was driving sixteen horses, leading the way with her blinding white steed, while fifteen men in black drove their midnight stallions. The stillness of the night began to fade with each gallop, kicking up sand at a furious pace, disturbing all that lay still in her desert path. Her hands held steady on the reigns, her eyes focused, she could not physically see the town in front of here, but in her mind it shined like a diamond, clear as day, right in front of her bright blue eyes and long flowing blonde hair and its long lazy curls.

The plan was simple take the Island Bank for every dollar it had and make it seem like they headed north. The men approached from all angles, north, east and west, but our heroine would solely approach from the south. They would all rendezvous at the Black Owl Saloon, just across the street from the Island Bank and the Velvet crush. She drew her horse just outside of town where the old trading post stood, and kicked her boots one by one through the sand, past the post office and dusty hotels until her fingers graced the doors of the Black Owl.
