Weekend Writing Prompt #70 – Outlaw

by sammicoxwriter


The posse rode day and night to catch the most wanted outlaw before he got to the Big River.

The sight of a huge  single oak tree and a bullet in him made the old desperado shiver.

A makeshift noose was placed around his neck and someone slapped his horse on the rump.

The tree seemed to groan for him as his shaking body dropped with a deadly thump.

The deputy lawmen cheered watching his last muscles quiver.
