"My God Ben, we've got to do something. Half this town witnessed what happened, Case was drunk, I'm sure that was civil, but the main charges involve Case threatening not just his rumored opponent for the upcoming elections, Quentin Cantrell, but pulling a pistol on Marshal Guyer. I'm not sure how to get past those two charges, among others less severe."
It looked bleak from where Latham stood, Robinson was truly unable to assist in the release of Case Steelgrave, but there was the dealings of Elias's daughter, which prompted,
"The town Council? When are we meeting, and how do you see this hospital plan evolving, if I may be so bold as to ask." Anything positive on that front might quell Elias's anger about Case, at least for the short term.
The meeting had been a shambles! her father could not have done a better job of ruining what she had tried to convey to the 'supposed' ladies of Kalispell. Yet even as she thought of the what had happened, and was still happening around her.
The bright spot had been the support of Anaesthesia Orr. She began to gather her things realizing that all was certainly not lost. They could proceed without any support from the community, perhaps it would be a bit more difficult, but with the grants she retained, that were in her name, it would be possible to proceed.
Still she was saddened by what had gone so horribly wrong. Causing Matthew to fire his pistol inside the room, what had been deafening, and certainly caused some damage that would need to be repaired. This had definitely been a day!
It was as she started for the door that she saw both Jonah and Josiah waiting in the lobby, and that was reason enough to smile. A hand touched her arm.
"Miss Steel, Phinias G. McVay, editor of the Union. The paper supports your efforts, Ma'am. Terribly sorry for, for whatever this was supposed to be."
"Thank you sir, you're support is highly valued." Leah replied with a smile , "please excuse me." She wanted away from the room and to confer with her partners.
"Certainly." Phinias replied as he got to his feet. There was type to set and a Special Edition to get out!
"Gentlemen." She greet the Doctors. Shall we step into the dining room?"
Jonah's main regret was that he and Doctor Boone had been confined to the lobby, as they weren't 'ladies', and therefore didn't qualify for the ladies part of the meeting...
Which meant that he missed out on the donnybrook that had broken out, more's the pity! Still, they could hear it, and then it started to spill out toward them, and he stood, ready to dodge any errant swings, finding it all entertaining and amusing...
...Until he saw the look on Leah's face, and his heart went out to her. This was her beloved project, and the 'ladies' didn't seem to be taking it seriously.
Glancing at Dr. Boone, he shrugged, then stood and waited for Leah to come through the waning melee.
"Yes, of course." Honestly, Emeline wasn't so inclined to serve the lad either, after this, but this was a business and she had to stay professional in it. "It will be difficult, I admit..."
Wiping he hands on her apron, she instructed, "The biscuits need to come out in five minutes, and stir the stew." She grabbed the coffee pot, then shook her head. "I'm tempted to pour this over the young man's head!"
She wouldn't, of course, but it would feel good!
Going out to to the table, she smiled at the boy, wanting to give him a piece of her mind, but instead offering him coffee...
"Wow, a loft!" Well, Weedy knew about lofts in barns, but not in houses, and it sounded pretty exciting! So much that he completely forgot about camping (squirrel!).
"This is really nice," he declared, looking around as they entered the house. The house that Miz Addy had bought for them was good, and he even had his own room, but they hadn't really been in it long enough for it to feel like home. But Wyatt's house had all those personal things that made it lived in, what he imagined a real house should be like.
"Girls smell all flowery, I wouldn't want to share a room with one." Well, except Miz Addy, who smelled like horses and fresh hay, except recently she'd been smelling a bit like flowers too, but he wasn't sure what that was about!
