Those who have, get.
The Ridge gives Talmidge a harsh look.
Talmidge frowns knowing he is in trouble. He looks away toward the fortress.
The Ridge has an almost hidden grin as he speaks to Talmidge.
You stay behind. John is your friend
and a brave Cherokee. This lesson may
teach you how to treat a brother.
Talmidge is embarrassed.
The Ridge gets off his horse and goes to John.
John, you worry. Don’t I'll speak
to your mother.
John appears worried.
It's not that Ridge. The killing,
The Ridge appears fatherly.
You'll be home soon. I'm sorry
you got caught in this, but we
must survive and this killing is
the price we pay to live.
John smiles and nods. The Ridge walks back to his horse and mounts.
The waiting warriors can see Sevier and his men in the distance riding over a low hill and into the not very well guarded fortress.
Chief Watts shakes his head in disbelief. He positions for
the attack. He yells out in Cherokee.
