THE RIDGE

Doublehead, you are executed by decree

of the council, trader.

The Ridge is taken totally by surprise. Doublehead raises up from under the blankets, a bloody figure, and attacks The Ridge.

They wrestle around the room. Doublehead hits the Ridge with his fist again and again. The Ridge falls back and regains his balance. Doublehead charges him again.

The Ridge quickly jerks his hatchet from his belt and hits

Doublehead in the front of the skull, burying it deep.

Doublehead's eyes get wide and he falls back on the floor, dead.

Sanders runs into the room. He and The Ridge approach with caution.

SANDERS

What happened? He's so bloody.

The Ridge stands and looks at the body and shakes his head.

John and Talmidge appear in the battered doorway. They just

stare at the scene. Sanders and The Ridge leave the small house taking John and Talmidge with them.

SANDERS

You boys are young, but it’s time

you choose your loyalty. It’s

either the tribe or white’s.

Doublehead chose white.

It is quiet because the boys say nothing. They stop beside their horses. The sound of a rushing brook can be heard in the background. The Ridge looks at the boys kindly and takes a stand with them.

RIDGE

I know these boys they always go

with the tribe. They are my band.
