Since his wife had died Jim had been somewhat a loner preferring his horse and dog to the company of others. When all the talk was mostly about the
Ebola virus and it's deadly spread, he saddled up and packed for an extended stay next to his favorite wilderness fishing pond.
The weather was perfect with the highs in 80s F. and the nights close to 55 F.
As he approached the pond (and to his great surprise) he heard voices and a female screaming.
After determining the direction of the noise he dismounted and cautiously penetrated the brush and trees that rimmed the pond. His eyes took in a
scene of two very dirty men holding down a girl and tearing off her clothing. She was fighting, crying, and using all her strength to fight them off,
but it was a losing battle.
Upon further scanning of the scene there was another body of a man laying about 10 yards away. It appeared, due to the man's obvious age, he could
have been the girls father or sugar daddy. The prone man had evidently received a blow to the head with one of the survival shovels which had become
quite popular over the years. The shovel was still embedded in his head at a rather obscene angle as his body continued to produce copious amounts of
blood to stain the sand and dirt of the pond's edge.
One of the dirty men slapped the girl a rather severe blow across the face and head which stunned her to almost unconsciousness; at least the
screaming stopped as the final clothing apparel was removed from her prone body.
The biggest of the dirty men then lifted the girl from under her arms and stood her up on her wobbly legs as 'Dirty Man Two' started to undress. As
his pants dropped around his knees Toby the dog was sent to take him down as the Lone Horseman came out of hiding.
Seeing the dog run for an attack the guy holding the girl dropped her to help his friend and fend off the dog attack. At this point one shot was fired
and Mr. Biggie head exploded into a pink mist as he dropped in his tracks. Toby did not miss a stride as he attacked the remaining dirty man which
screamed like a girl as Toby tore him apart.
The girl had sat where she had fallen either to scared to move or in a total state of shock as Jim approached.
In a gentile voice he said, " I hope those were not relatives of yours" .
As time passed or within the next year they built an underground home furnished with handmade furniture which was very efficient at keeping them warm
and comfortable during the cold season.
Everyday Jim cranked up the charge on his survival radio, and everyday there was no signal from any station broadcasting. No news, no talking, just
static which was not a positive sign in that on his prior stays there had been a multitude of stations to choose from.
In the last year they had not seen or heard another soul.
