Micah hissed in pain as Zane struggled to free his deputy from beneath his horse. "That was a lousy shot." Micah moaned.

Zane sighed and leaned back. "Look, pulling on you isn't working. I'm just causing you more pain."

"What're you going to do? Leave me here and go for the girl?"

Zane sighed and ran his hand through his hair in frustration. Just several hours before, Zane had been in bed dreaming some rather fascinating dreams regarding his new wife, River. True, he'd never life out any of his dreams but he had enjoyed the life-like dreams. Now here he was in the middle of the nowhere, his wife had been kidnapped by his father. His deputy's horse had been shot from under him and each minute Zane spent struggling to free his deputy River was taken farther and farther away from him.

"Look, if I try to lift the horse a bit can you get your leg free?"

"I'll try."

Straining, Zane threw his back into lifting the horse. Several attempts later and Zane succeeded in budging the horse just enough for Micah to free his leg. "Is it broken?" Zane asked as Micah rolled up his pant leg to inspect the damage.

"I don't think so." Micah replied. "Doesn't hurt enough for that. I think it's just going to be bruised. I'll be fine." Slowly, Micah pulled himself to his feet and took a few tender steps to test his leg. "I'll be fine." He repeated, "We've got to get back to finding River. Each minute that passes is-"

"I know, I know." Zane ran his hand through his hair and gazed in the direction the River had disappeared. "We've got a slight problem though." Zane said turning back to Micah. "You can't get back to town without a horse, not with being hurt. And I can't go after River without a horse."

Micah swore under his breath. "Hefty really set us up good, didn't he?"

"That was his plan. So what are we going to do, Micah?"

"Well.."

"I want her back, Micah. I want my River."

"You'll get her." Micah promised. "Here's what we're going to do. We already know what direction they're going. They're right between our town and Fairview. We'll go back to town, send a wire to the sheriff. Then we'll get together a posse, and another horse. We'll completely surround them. They'll have no choice but to surrender."

"Except, he'll have River. He's nasty, Micah. He'll use River against me. He might even-"

"Zane, we haven't got any other choices. Besides, River is a smart girl. She won't give up without a fight."

"Let's go. We're wasting time." Zane helped Micah mount.

River knelt near the small creek that ran through the wooded area she was traveling through. She was tired and her head ached. She was trying to get away from Hefty and Krillan as fast as she could but the travel was beginning to take its toll. Cupping her hands, River drew some water and raised it to her lips. She hadn't gone far enough. Sh

him. "I love you River." He whispered, pressing his lips to her forehead.

"Oh Zane." River repeated as she grabbed his face and met his eyes. She couldn't speak. She didn't want to. Leaning forward, she gingerly touched her lips to his. Pulling back rather shyly, she gasped as Zane's hands embraced her neck as he gently pulled her forward once more. He kissed the corner of her mouth once, twice, a third time. His thumb caressed the side of her throat. He could feel her pulse beat. Proof that she was alive. Alive and in his arms. "My River." He breathed just before he crushed his lips to hers.

Warm moisture flooded River's mouth as Zane used his to weave a magical spell over her. It was more than River ever imagined it could be.Some people claimed that kissing made them see fireworks, though River thought that all the fireworks in the world couldn't describe the way Zane's lips made her feel. Zane's tongue touched River's upper lip, causing her to gasp in surprise at the unexpected action. Zane seized the moment and his tongue swept into her mouth. Tenderly, sweetly, his mouth taught River's how to kiss him. The moisture of their mouths mingled and River could feel her heart pounding in her chest. She needed to touch him, had to touch him. Reaching out, her hands framed his face. She nearly smiled, for with her hands placed just so, she could feel his mouth kissing her. Kissing her? No. Zane's kiss went far beyond that. Zane's mouth was making love to River's. Never had she felt such intense desires before.
