The bounty hunter turned out to be a young woman. Black shirt, black pants, black boots with cuffs were complemented by a flat black hat, also, of course, black. The only bright spot was a red silk bandana on the head.
The woman was armed with a revolver and, unexpectedly, a sabber. Moreover, it was clear that she is well able to handle this weapon.
Beatrice: - "Hello, Sonja. I was told that you are the best in your business west of the great river. I hope that this is the right information ..."
Sonja: - "Well, I received awards for the heads of Long Bill and Peter - Six fingers. If you know who this is about, then no other recommendation is required."
Beatrice: - “I read about it in the newspaper, but I don’t believe journalists much. It’s all too much like a fairy tale. But it doesn’t matter ... Do you know why I was looking for you?”
Sonya: - "I can only guess. In the saloons they say that your sister died in the attack on the stage and you obviously want me to find those who are involved. Is I right?"
Beatrice: - "Yes ... I will pay you twenty-five thousand dollars if you bring me the head of the one who killed my sister. Also, you will immediately receive five thousand dollars for running costs. Any horses and equipment you need will also will be provided to you completely free ... "
Sonja: - "An interesting offer. And a very attractive price, but ... What's the catch?"
Beatrice: - "It's all about the sheriff. Nathalie McKenna is also looking for these bandits and she can accuse you of obstructing justice ... Will you take on this business?"
Sonja (shrugging): - “It’s not the first time that I’ll be at enmity with Nathalie McKenna. I hope not the last ... Yes, I agree, Ms. Shaw. We can say that their heads are already mounted on stakes near your gate . "
Beatrice (nodded): "I hope so ... Rosalind will give you money for expenses and provide access to equipment and horses ... Goodbye, Sonja. And I am waiting for good news."
