Sabertooth - Chapter 38
Chapter 38: The Death of Lincoln (3)
In the end, Victor and Logan still left a livelihood: ‘The First Quick Gunner of the Western Federation’ Sundance Kids.
The reason is that these two brothers found that they ran too far into the desert and could not find a way back, so they kill one of the kid and capture the other kid, who was familiar with the terrain, and with that kid’s help they came out.
In fact, letting the two go out on their own was not impossible, but Victor smelled an unusual smell from this attack.
So they need to get out of the desert as soon as possible, and because of this, he capture a kid, and he can lead them out of the desert quickly.
Then the reward he received was a brand new job, and the whitewash of the past black history. The most important thing is: he didn’t lose his life like other people.
“Damn it! I shouldn’t have taken this task from the beginning! These guys are not ordinary people at all!”
A Kid, who took them over, indicating that the intestines are regretful, if it is not Victor, who appreciates his good shot and didn’t kill him to lead the way, he is estimated to feed the vultures like the Southern Party and other robbers.
“I don’t think this thief has any effect, let me kill him..”
Victor finally stopped, Logan said that he didn’t understand the behavior of leaving the other person’s life. Since the other party wanted to kill them, they should kill them too.
“We need to hurry out of the desert now, and he happens to be able to do this. At this juncture, time is important. It seems that we need to rush back to Washington as soon as possible.”
Victor said that he is useful, that kid frowned at Logan. After groaning, Logan turned his head to ignore him.
“Why Washington? Didn’t we are going to the west to find ‘Red Wolf’?”
Logan felt very puzzled to hear Victor’s words that they would return to Washington. After all, he had heard the grievance between Victor and Red Wolf, when he was on the train. At this time, Victor said that he would not go west, and that he had to go back to Washington. It must be something extraordinary.
“Remember the news we heard on the train? The Southern Army had surrendered a few days ago, but we were still attacked. This shows that some people do not want me to reach the west, let alone return to Washington. Otherwise, they wouldn’t be so anxious to bring me out.”
In fact, Logan’s analysis of Victor was completely noncommittal. Anyway, he just wanted to follow Victor, and then there was a fight. Someone would just cross it. The future forkman.
Instead, that kid, as a captive, expressed his attention to Victor’s analysis, because he was working in cooperation with the Southern Party.
He vaguely heard that the other party mentioned his plan to ensure that Victor could not rush back to Washington. But for the sake of his own life now, he honestly lead the way.
As for what will happen when Victor returns to Washington, it has nothing to do with him. After all, he only has money to do with the Southern Paralympic Party that has gone to hell.
Even those gangster associates only used mutual cooperation. For people like them, who have their heads on their lives, there are no eternal friends, only eternal interests.
Today, you may take the lead to make a fortune together. Tomorrow, there may be internal strife due to uneven distribution of stolen goods. Eventually, the winner gains everything and the dead throw away the wilderness.
It must be false to say that kid never regretted taking this path, although he made a great reputation and gained a lot of wealth.
But the wealth that he has in hand will soon be wasted. After all, such a precarious day is doomed to his lifestyle of timely enjoyment.
Until this time, Victor gave him three options: the first is to die, the second one went to the federal prison for a few days, and then went to court to put it on a gallow, and the third one is to join the other party and become an agent of ‘loyalty to the federation’, atonement for what he has done in the past.
Obviously, that kid chose the third, and Logan expressed contempt for his behavior, but Victor didn’t say much.
Instead, after that kid confirmed his safety, he started to play around with Logan, and finally stopped under Victor’s warning.
Just when Victor tried to hurry back to Washington, Tina, the young secretary, who stayed in Washington, received a telegram from Tom again.
They were attacked by unknown armed forces on the way to the west, but fortunately they replaced the latest type of magazine and grenades, so they successfully repelled each other.
The opponent’s target seemed to be Wendigo’s body, but in the end they did not succeed, so they decided to send Wendigo’s body back to Washington, and then rush to the west.
In fact, I have to say that Wendigo is still a strange creature. After death, it didn’t rot and smell, but kept it as it was, which avoided Tom’s headache for preservation.
They crammed it directly into the box and pulled on the train, and Tom and others embarked on a journey back to Washington, the federal capital of the upcoming meeting.
After receiving Tom’s telegram, Tina fell into a headache because she found that she could not reach her chief Victor.
In fact, the last contact between the two was when Victor sent her a telegram inquiring about Tom’s movements as she passed by a train station.
After that, they could no longer contact each other, and the only news she got was that the train that Victor took was attacked.
Then after Logan and Victor jumped in to stop the robbers, no one had heard of them again.
And the same news was received by the Federal Minister of Warfare, and then after the meeting of the day, he passed the message through his servant with a note:
“It seems that our attack plan was successful. By the way, ‘Sabertooth Tiger’ and his companions disappeared, and it was estimated that the desert vultures had been fed. However, our attempt to seize the corpse of the strange creature failed and caused heavy losses.”
In this way, the Southern League remnants still lurking in the federal capital of Washington also received these supposedly confidential information:
“That corpse is not very important. If you fail, then it’s okay. The top priority is to assassinate Lincoln. Since the ‘Sabertooth Tiger’ can no longer return, then immediately notify John that he can prepare for action!”
Then this Southern League Who is John mentioned in the leader of the disabled party. Why was he chosen as the executor of the assassination of Lincoln by the desperate party of the Southern League?
In fact, John Wilkes Booth, is not even an agent. He is just an actor, and his family was in acting for generations.
He still supported the Northern Federation at first. Later, he didn’t know which rib was wrong, or the second sickness, he actually began to support the Southern League.
And in the early days when the Southern Army won a series of victories, he boasted in the tavern what if the South will win, Even because if those words he also went to prison, and was warned by the police.
After being released, he not only did not repent, but intensified, but then the situation on the battlefield changed.
After the death of ‘Stone Wall’ Jackson, the Southern Army retreated on the battlefield. When the supporters of the Federation cheered for the victory of the EFF in the bar, he was still blowing the Southern League.
“Yo! Isn’t this Nanbuki. Here again! I heard that the Southern Army defeated again!”
This caused him to get a nickname of Nanbuki in the bar and all the Federation supporters trouble and ridicule him.
“Come on, let’s have a whiskey, be a little stronger”
At first, he did not respond to this time, but just drunk his head. But obviously the federal supporters did not want to let him go.
“Yo! Brothers! Do you know that the Southern Army has defeated in the battle again?! To celebrate the victory of the Federation, we have a toast!”
They began to deliberately celebrate the defeat of the South and the victory of the Federation.
“What do you know! This is not a defeat! This is a turnaround!”
John began to speak, watching the crowd refute.
“What? According to my cousin, who joined the army, those Yankees were beaten up and urinating, and they didn’t even have shoes to wear! Hahahaha!”
John feel embarressed, when he heard that. And then argued: “If that damn Victor hadn’t assassinated ‘Stonewall’ Jackson, then everyone need to take shelter on the southern shore. Everyone is laughing that thay didn’t had shoes, while fighting, but you didn’t see that they are still fighting.”
In this way, the bartenders teased John day after day and built their happiness on this poor southern supporter.
John showed his unique perseverance. No matter how they insulted and cracked down, he could not change his faith and support for the Southern Alliance. Instead, he became more determined in such an environment.
Such a day lasted until one day:
“Have you heard? General Robert Lee of the Southern League surrendered, the Southern League is finished!”
The news of the failure of the Southern League spread like the wind throughout the Federation, naturally including in this tavern, which is located in the federal capital of Washington.
Just as the supporters of the Federation cheered for the victory of the Federation in the tavern and celebrated, John pushed the door into the tavern.
“Yo! ‘Nanbuki’ is here again! The Southern Army surrendered! Did you know?! John, they can’t turn anymore! Hahahaha!”
The supporters of the Federation began to laugh as usual, but this time, John did not refute any more. He just drank a large glass of strong whiskey without a word. Then he turned and left the tavern. Since then, no one has seen him again.
