The shadow stood unmoving.
Clint was upright, stamping his feet to get life back in them. The dread he felt hadn't left him: he was sure he'd get the first barrel and Ma Cody the second. Plenty of time, then, to reload for Anna.
"If you aint Zeke McGinley, you git right now. But I knows you're Zeke McGinley and you be welcome, boy."
The shadow entered and Zeke followed it, taking uncertain steps into the room.
Clint gasped and, simultaneously, he heard Old Ma Cody cry out in shock
"Oh God protect us, whatever has happened to you, Zeke?"
