(There's another snap and Mari stands up again. He is very jumpy. There is another snap. And another one. It becomes clear that something is crashing through the woods and headed right for him. He aims his gun at the oncoming sound. A girl, filthy and bloody comes crashing out of the brush. He jumps back at the sight of her and she freezes in her tracks.)copyright protection18PENANAxm2KPMdo52

The law don't give a coon's ass about what lowborn hill folk do. A judge rode up while Stumpy was putting himself in me. They both laughed about it. The judge stayed the night in our barn, but before he went to bed he and Stumpy took turns on me. Then the next day Stumpy hit me in the head so hard that my bell was rung for three days. Said it were for laying with another man.copyright protection18PENANAiHKBd0ub3V
