Roylsden #235

But this wasn't just man to man.
Lucy McGinley was in a heightened state. Staring eyes, dry mouth, clenched jaw. But there were no trembling hands: the barrel of her pistol pointed steadily at his chest, and, more importantly, the end of the barrel of the Winchester - the most conspicuous indication of any tremor - was steady and securely positioned just a foot above the back of Clint's head.
She was in a heightened state sure enough, but she had complete focus and concentration. One sudden move and Cole knew that he would get the first bullet and Clint the second.

    That’s how I like women heroines. Harder than nails... and that’s not just Lucy McGinley. This has taken on an even more exciting turn. Gimme more... and don’t spare them horses! 🐎

    I watched the wonderful Coen Bros’s True Grit again last night and all I could think of was Roylsden!

    I haven't seen that film for years, so I'm well overdue another watch. Thanks for the comment Neville, I really appreciate that!
