The killers turned to their second victim, but she was swift with her foot and spurred the horse that she was sitting on. He took off with lightning speed, and the young girl could hear the sound of fast-paced hoof beats coming up behind her. The darkness was to her advantage and she stopped her horse suddenly, and slid off the saddle....slapping the back of her faithful stallion. "Go on baby." She whispered. "And run like the wind!" Diving into the bushes, she prayed that the men would pass her by.
