Am I right dove lungs, on a white table, little league Ouch, Lucia Terrorists, Genco told me the incredible story of her journey to night fail wins. I was a young woman. She left her home to travel west across Amerika. We need to find a new life for herself out of the How did smoke choked cities what four miles picking up work in roadside town She wrote in carriages when she had money and she eventually found a job making belts for an old tenor. Who worked Lucia Long hours for little pay the old times,
there was otherwise kind and treated Lucia like her very own daughter, because she never had a family, but the tenor grew ill and Lucia took care of her bathing. And fetching herb mixtures from the apothecary one morning. The old woman was no more. Lucia, ran her business for a while longer, but since the tanner had no airs and Lucia, not feel she had found her true home. She continued west. There was supposedly go. Then sunshine along an azure, see soon. However, She once again was in desperate need of money so that she could eat and could sleep in safety. She met some men, silent and men who kept their faces and shadows who kept their voice cs in shadows, who kept their guns in shadows and she wore for them, never knowing what her job was. Just that you,
to ride the train with them until the time was right. One afternoon The men stood up simultaneously and moved in different directions. One to the front of the one to the rear one I'm through the ceiling on the roof of the car to more droop storm on the passengers? They told Lucia to keep everyone com the train wine to a halt and the men heard the unloaded crates from the rear car onto a horse drawn court. The crates were warm words. Summer than the air around them. They smelled sharp and earthy like Shelly Ground Cinnamon, the apparent sheriff the little town they stopped in the town of night veil of plague. She'd never heard of soon arrived. He was wearing a welding mask and a cowboy hat, the sheriff, he's gone on the shadowy men being outnumbered. He was unable to do much to stop them so, while COM
the others on the train. Lucia crept behind one of the men. He had a kerchief Braun across his face not an actual kerchief tied in front of his face, but a simulation Rome of patterned fabric hand drawn on his face using one of her leather belts, Lucia whip, the gun out of his hand and deftly picked it up from the ground. She fired at the outlaws felling, both outside the sheriff felt to more, but as she climbed up the top of the car, she heard a shot, from just below her and then she was lying on her back. She couldn't. Her why she had laid down. She saw in the guy, just above her dark planet of course, size lit by no son, she no, how she had not noticed it before it was so clubs an invisible, tighten all thick black.
Forests and jagged mountains and deep turbulence oceans and then let me take you first to the weather

This is why we regret it all on hopeless swim against the tat until every bone is broken supercilious, you can wait till the crew is global goals, method by Mr Weber, region alone. That never has just been waiting for that. As well as I know from the lonely one thing I know her, things like where our last wish follow their survival back home or of a black sea will lag love. What we know now. I asked Lucia, if that's how she
I'd. Well, one moment I mean a gunfight she said, and the neck moment. I'm a ghost she asked. If I at a cigarette. I don't smoke so I said no, I couldn't hold it anyway. She admitted Why are you living in a baseball diamond? I asked her. She said this wasn't always a baseball diamond, did, was just a field, a field where train tracks used to run a field where a train once rolled to stop but right around this time the game of baseball was becoming popular and kids began, coming to the field, to play, Lucia watched and learned and grew to love the sports, simplicity and structured grace it's a beautiful game seesaw, so I started trying to coach the its. But since I'm translucent in hazy, they got scared and ran away. Calling this the hunted baseball diamond over
time the kids realized. I had some helpful things to say about batting stances and hitting the cut off man, so they came back. You should turn to one of them its eye on the ball. Manny shouted. I asked Lucia, so you think, those men on the train were related to these strangers in night fail now you do not see The evil like that very often she said, but no those Not the train perform their evil because they needed whatever was in those creates more than they needed life or peace. Said these strangers. They need anything they are evil for evils. Own sake, I looked over and saw Steve and Janis coming my way. Reply fighting and grinning Lucius said he's a good kid good arm. She's going to be,
great shortstop like her uncle. I told you so I hope we have a good baseball season and it was wonderful catching up with her Steve Janice and I turned to walk back to Steve's Van Lucia. Whispered to me, their past time for hope. Cecil there no longer coming they're here and we cannot stop something that wants nothing. Staring straight agendas, ignoring Lucia. I said You made the team congrats, let's get ice cream behind us. I heard a distant bark it was a sweet Dickens, Yelp and the reflection on the Van window. I could see a boy and a hoodie holding a beagle puppy and both of them were looking at us. I felt cold. Sweat we face was hot. My tongue was, sticking Dick Steve,
we get a dog Jonah said all strapped in. Let's get that ice cream. Okay, I interrupted the dog barked again and I did not look. I do not look at anything as I got my seat and shut the door felt like throwing up for driving Steve. They said putting my hand softly on his arm. He look momentarily amused, no, not amused concerned and we drove away as generous, told us all about her new team stay to next. Lurking just outside your window.
