"Welcome to the McCain Ranch"
You know, it’s one time when a total stranger comes into town with
intentions to hurt me and/or my son, but it’s an entirely different
matter when someone, who you loved at one point, sneaks into you
nice comfortable life, throws it all out of whack, then turns it
upside down. You find yourself at the point of deception and
despair. And that’s what happened to me one day.
The story starts out when the stage came pulling into North Fork.
The driver jumps down and yells to Micah. "Hey Marshal, give me a
hand, I have an ailing woman on my hands!" yelled the stagecoach
Micah assured her that he’d send for the doctor right away but the
woman assures him that she would be alright without a doctor. She
plops down in a chair and gasps for air as she tries to calm herself
down. She stands up and thanks everyone for their help. “I’ll be
alright just as soon as I get to my room,” she states. But then she
falls down, almost faint. Micah reaches out for her. “Lucas,” she
says in just a little more then a whisper.
“What’s that ma’am?” Micah asked.
“Lucas McCain,” she says as he helps her into the hotel. Mark had
been standing there watching the whole thing. You should have seen
the look on his face when he discovered that this pretty lady was
asking for me! He sure did take off in a hurry to find me!
There was a man on the stage named Nichols who said, “Now there’s a
lady I’d like to get to know!”
But a man named Chad Morgan announced, “I don’t think you’d be the
lady’s type, Nichols.”
Micah got the lady settled in her hotel room and lectured her on the
dangers of going without food for two days. Mark ran and found me at
once and when he told me a pretty lady was asking for me, naturally
I dropped everything and went to find out who she was.
I knocked loudly on the door, then opened it and hurried over to the
bed. A huge smile spread over my face when I saw who it was. “Nora,”
I greeted her warmly. I grabbed her hand and sat down in a chair
beside her bed. Mark stood right beside me.
"All this young lady needs is a good rest and three square meals for
a couple of days," said Micah. Then he left.
It had been a long time. “Almost fourteen years,” I stated as I
stared into her eyes. She said it seemed like an eternity since
Colorado. I suddenly realized I hadn’t introduced her and Mark. As I
introduced them, Mark even remembered to take off his hat and shake
her hand politely!
“Your son, Lucas,” Nora said in a voice that sounded as if she
couldn’t believe it.
I wanted to talk to her alone. “Son, you meet me over at Hattie’s a
little later, huh?” I gave him that look that told him to leave on
the double. Mark smiled at me, knowing I wanted to talk to her
alone. He quickly left.
I leaned into her and looked sternly into her eyes. “Now, what’s
this Micah said about you not eating?” I scolded her. She tried to
avoid the subject. “Answer me, Nora,” I demanded softly.
“Well, you…you need money to buy food.” That announcement threw me
off. I stared puzzledly at her. “Well, it took all my money to buy
the ticket for the stage to get here. A lady can’t go around asking
for arms like a beggar.” I couldn’t believe things got that bad for
her! “It’s ironic, isn’t it? Well, you wouldn’t marry me because
folks were saying you were marrying my father’s silver mine, and
here I am without a penny.”
This whole thing was hard for me to believe. I had heard she got
married and settled down in Denver. “John Sanford wasn’t as finicky
as you. He thought nothing of marrying a silver mine. Then after my
father died, he went hog wild – went through all the money we had.
Then he did the only decent thing he ever did in his whole life.”
“What do you mean?” I suddenly asked.
“He got killed over a woman in a barroom brawl,” she answered. I
knew then that things had been rough for her. She suddenly felt like
she should have come here. She felt she was embarrassing me, but I
assured her that we were old friends and I wanted to help her anyway
She told me how she had met an old friend of mine who told her
Margaret had died and I was living on a ranch here. I stared at her
as she spoke “Coming here was a wild impulse. It was a silly thing
to do but it would mean so much to me just to be near somebody who
might care what happens to me.” She suddenly started talking about
getting a job.
I stopped her. “Don’t get ahead of yourself. There’s plenty of time
to talk about what you’re going to do next.”
She suddenly grabbed my hand in both of hers and squeezed it. “Oh,
thank you, Lucas!” she smiled at me.
After I left, Nora had another visitor. Except this male visitor
didn’t knock. He walked right in. She turned around, shocked that he
was there. “You were perfect, Nora. There for a minute I could have
sworn you were at death’s door!” He applauded her.
She was upset that he was there,
but Chad Morgan assured her that no
one saw him come in. “You know better then to underestimate Jud
Nichols by this time!” she stated. “If he even suspects we know each
other, everything I have planned will go down the drain!” she
Chad was laying on her bed now. “Well, I’m not so sure it was a good
idea coming out here! Even with the best of luck and with the
shipping season going full blast, what kind of chance do I have of
winning anything close to $5,000.00 in a small, off-trail town like
“Practically none at al,” Nora answered calmly.
Chad suddenly sat up. “Well don’t be so calm about it. Jud means to
kill me if I don’t pay him back that money, and he isn’t bluffing!”
She knew that. He suddenly wished they were someplace like Dodge.
“Only North Fork has Lucas McCain,” Nora announced.
“What’s that small town rancher got to do with us anyway?” Chad
“That small town rancher is gonna save your skin, Chad!” But she
wouldn’t tell him how. She was afraid he would mess up her plans.
She suddenly sat down on the bed beside him and ran her hand through
his hair. "Oh, Chad, why do I stay with you ? You’re such a boy.
You’re vain and faithless and weak, everything a woman should
despise. And here I am twisting Lucas McCain's life all out of shape
for you." She kissed him..
"I promise I'll never give you any reason to regret it," said Chad.
She made him promise he wouldn't go traipsing off with another women
like he did in San Francisco. "I did come back," said Chad.
"Oh Chad Honey. Don't ever hurt me again like that. Don't ever leave
me alone, promise me that!” She threw her arms around him and
pleaded with him.
"Sure Nora, sure,” Chad answered.
The next morning, Mark and I rode into town together before school.
I stopped by the bank to get some money. Mark wanted to know if he
should meet me here after school. “No son, I won’t be here too long.
I’ll meet you at the ranch later,” I answered him.
Mark was disappointed. He was hoping we’d have supper at the hotel.
“It’s only Tuesday, Mark.” I stuffed the money in my pocket as I
lightly scolded him. “If we eat there tonight, what do we do
I wasn’t asking for a sarcastic answer, but I got one anyhow. “Eat
there again,” he tired.
I laughed and patted him on the back. He’d do anything to get out of
doing dishes! He started to leave, but I stopped him and asked him
to pick up the baking power after school. He asked me if I was going
over to see Nora. When I told him I was, he asked me to tell her he
hoped she was feeling better. I smiled at my good boy!
Mark did as told and got the baking powder. When he came out of the
hotel he saw Nora and greeted her politely. She hurried toward him
with a big smile. “Uh…Mark, isn’t it?” He asked her if she was
feeling better today. “Oh yes, I’m almost back to my old self. Thank
you, Mark. Seeing your daddy yesterday did more for me than anything
in the world. She suddenly looked around for Lucas. Mark told her I
was at home wounding up some stray steers.
Mark then announced that we were baking a cake. She wanted to know
which of us did the baking. “Well, Pa bakes the cake, I make the
frosting.” Suddenly, Mark got an idea. "Say you oughta come out for
supper, Mrs. Sanford. Pa and me, we're good cooks." He was suddenly
excited about the idea.
"I'd love to! What kind of a cake ya' baking?"
"You know, I have a special recipe for chocolate cake."
Mark laughed. That made him really happy. "Gee, how about coming out
for supper tomorrow?"
Mark invited her.
. "Tomorrow, I'd love to." Nora agreed.
"Thanks Mrs. Sanford, I'll tell Pa. He'll pick you up. I'll see you
tomorrow night," said Mark. Then he ran off. He was excited to get
home and give me the news! Little did we know that Mark was playing
right into her hand!
I was working on the books when this whirlwind named Mark McCain
came bursting through my front door. He sure was excited! “Pa, I
invited Mrs. Sanford to supper tomorrow night. I said that you’d
pick her up!”
I stared at my over-zealous child. “You did what?” I exclaimed
He repeated it for me just in case I didn’t hear it the first time.
“I invited her over for supper. She’s gonna come over and taste our
cooking and baking!”
The second time he said it wasn’t quite as shocking. I even went
back to my books as I said, “Well that’s find son, but don’t you
think you should’ve talked to me about it first?”
Mark didn’t’ understand why. She was an old friend of mine. He
thought I should have invited her right off – made her feel right at
home! “She’s sure pretty,” Mark said. “She likes chocolate cake too!
Says she’s got her own special recipe!”
Gosh, but this boy was excited! I laughed at him. “Alright Mark, I
probably should’ve thought of it myself. Didn’t think you’d jump the
gun on me like this though.”
Suddenly, Mark slapped his stuff down on the table. He took his hat
off, plopped it on the table and sat down. He was ready for a
serious conversation. “Pa,” he said. He got really serious all of a
sudden. "Pa, I like her.” I turned my head to stare at him. “Well, I
think she's a real lady. I think I like her like Mrs. Dodd.” This
was getting interesting indeed! “Do you think she can make trout
flies?" As he talked, his voice got more excited and he leaned in
closer and closer to me.
“Mark, you’re the most fickle person I ever met! How do I know if
she can make trout flies?” I told him we needed to get that cake in
Mark had more news for me though. He had picked up a bag of new
candies you put on the frosting. I started to look in the bag, but
before I could get it open, he grabbed it from me and raced into the
kitchen. I couldn’t help smiling. I’m glad Mark liked Nora so much –
I liked her too! I thought that as I smiled a really big, contented
While Nora was waiting for me, Nichols started talking seductively
to her. “Dinner, Champaign, whatever else this town has to offer.”
Nora smiled, thanking him for his persistence. But she had an
engagement this evening already.
“You know, I really should be furious for pressing your intentions
on me,” Nora stated with a seducing smile.
“But you’re not,” Nichols stated softly.
“No,” she smiled. “But I’m going to pretend that I am.” She suddenly
reached out and slapped him hard! Nichols reared back as she started
over to my wagon.
I saw it, and because I was a gentleman and believed in defending a
woman’s honor, I jumped off the wagon and started over to punch this
man myself for whatever he had done to her. But Nora ran up to me
and put a restraining hand on me. “It’s alright, Lucas,” she
“It didn’t look that way,” I stated angrily.
“This gentleman just wouldn’t believe that a woman traveling alone
isn’t fair prey for any man.” I didn’t care. I still wanted to punch
this man! She grabbed a strong hold on me, though, to keep me from
my task. She assured me he understood now.
She was excited to get to the ranch and taste my chocolate cake. I
helped her up over the wheel. After I sat down, I gave Nichols one
more hard stare before driving away.
Nora sure did give us high praises on the supper – and the cake! She
thought it was the best chocolate cake she’d ever tasted! I assured
her that Mark deserved the praise for the cake. His frosting it what
made it so unique. “Tain’t so!” Mark cut in. “Pa’s bakin’s the best
there is! I wouldn’t want anyone else to do the cookin’ around
Nora and I looked at each other and smile at Mark. Mark suddenly
realized how that sounded and tried to make it sound better. But he
failed miserably! Mark suddenly stated he needed to do the dishes.
That right there was enough to send me a wondering! Sometimes, I had
to threaten him within an inch of his life to get those dishes done!
Then I got another big shocker! When Nora offered to help him, Mark
said no! Can you believe that? My boy said no! “This is my night to
wash the dishes,” he stated. Boy, that was a first!
“Pa, Why don’t you take Miss Sanford for a walk?” he suddenly asked.
He didn’t fool anyone! Even Nora knew that wasn’t normal for Mark!
“I believe he wants to get rid of us,” Nora stated. I knew that he
was trying to get us alone! “Come on, Lucas. You ought to show me
the rest of the ranch. As we started out the door, I turned and
started to say something to that boy of mine. But he only grinned a
knowing grin and shrugged his shoulder in innocence. There was
nothing innocent about this, though! He had it set up from the
As we walked, Nora was overcome by
the beauty of the ranch. “I’m all
out of adjectives, Lucas! This is the loveliest spot I’ve ever
seen1” she commented at one point.
“Well, when something’s bothering me, I come out here and this all
seems to cut problems down to their proper size,” I commented.
“I see what you mean,” Nora stated. “I’ve never had a place or a
person that I could take my problems to. I’ve always had to work
them out for myself. My husband’s…oh, I don’t know. I couldn’t talk
to him, be close to him.” She suddenly turned her head toward me. We
were staring into each other’s eyes as she spoke softly to me. “You
think I’ve changed much, Lucas?”
“I guess we all change a little as time goes on, Nora,” I answered
“A lot of years have passed. I wonder if it’s ever possible to
recapture those years, even for a day. A moment.” I put my hands on
her shoulders as we continued to look into each other’s eyes. I told
her the past was done. It’s the future that counts.
She suddenly grabbed my hand and rested it on her shoulder. “Oh
Lucas,” she cried. “I’m so afraid of the future. You see, I…I have
nobody in the world. I’m so lonely.”
She suddenly looked up into my eyes. She moved her face in toward
mine as we stood there quietly, staring at each other. I tried to
resist her, but there was something…something pulling us toward each
other. Our lips drew closer and closer together very slowly.
Suddenly, I grabbed her and kissed her passionately.
I had given in to my past – to the passion with her I used to know
so many years ago when we were both so much different!
Chad had been playing poker all night. He really had a lot of money
to earn. He decided to take a break the next morning. Nichols
offered to pay for his whisky. “Allow me,” he said. “You’ll need all
those to come up with the $5,000 by tomorrow night.”
“I haven’t seen any real money in this town yet!” Chad complained.
Nichols reminded him that he had picked it. “You said that this is
where all the big cattle men come to town. There’s only one bright
spot in this whole trip – the Sanford woman. If it wasn’t for a
promise of some interesting moments with her, I’d be tempted to
finish you off now and leave!” Nichols declared.
I rode into town one afternoon to meet Mark. I asked Micah if he’d
seen him. “I haven’t seen him today. Surprising, too. I’ve been
seeing him a lot more than usual these past few days.” I told Micah
I admired the way he noticed things. “Part of my job, Lucas Boy. But
I wouldn’t say they boy’s up to any mischief unless he’s trying to
play cupid between you and female.”
“Not don’t get any ideas, Marshal. She’s just an old friend,” I
Just then, Chat came out and asked Micah if North Fork had any rich
cattleman. Micah told him that we did because they all played penny
ante in the bunk house, that’s how they stayed rich! I was
interested in that young man, he seemed awfully anxious to come in
to some big money. I watched as he walked away. “Win, loose, or
draw, that boy’s been gambling steady, day and night ever since he
hit town. It’s like a disease.”
Suddenly, Nichols walked out of the saloon. I gave him a cold, hard
stare as he just stood there. My staring finally got to him.
"Something on your mind mister?" He finally asked.
I continued staring at him. "Should there be?” My voice held
harshness in it. He just walked off.
Micah saw the interaction. "Something between you two?" he asked.
"Nothing in particular, Micah." I patted him on the back and
suggested he buy me a cup of coffee.
I didn’t know it, but Nora had been watching me and Micah ever since
I rode into town – from her hotel window. She decided the timing was
perfect to carry out her scheming plan. She sat down and wrote a
letter. “Dear Lucas, These past few days have meant more to me then
you can possibly realize. I have an important decision to make. I
wondered if you could meet me this afternoon.
She gave it to Mark and I read it when we got back to the ranch.
Mark seemed to be daydreaming as I told him that Nora wanted to meet
me outside town because she had something important to say to me.
"She kissed me," Mark said dreamily.
I was just getting my hat when I heard that come out of Mark’s
mouth. “How’s that?” I suddenly asked.
"She kissed me when she gave me the note. Right in front of
everybody. Right on Main Street." Boy, did my boy have stars in his
"So," I said as I walked up behind him.
"Well, I don't want you to get the idea that her kissin' me had
anything to do with it. But, well I've been thinkin' it over, and it
wouldn't be so bad if she stayed in town and you started paying her
I couldn’t believe what was coming out of my young son’s mouth!
"Aren't you getting a little ahead of yourself boy?" I asked,
"All the other kids have mothers. I don't see why I should be any
different. Besides you must be awful sick just seeing me every time
you turn around. So...well, it's okay with me." Mark was being very
serious, but he couldn’t look at me as he spoke.
I let out a nervous laugh, not quite believing I was having this
conversation with my boy! I had to set him straight on a few things.
"Listen Mark,” I started as I threw my hat down on the table. I sat
down on the edge of the table so I would be eye-level with him, then
I turned him toward me. “First of all, I'll never get sick of seeing
you around. As for a woman in the house, well, Lord knows I've givin'
it plenty of thought. But son, you just can't make things like that
happen. They take a little time and a little thinking. And you
shouldn't rush into it." I picked up my hat and told him that while
I was gone he should get started on my homework. I opened the door
and grabbed my rifle. Then I turned back and looked towards my son.
I smiled and shook my head at him.
Meanwhile, Nora was at the place outside town waiting for me when
Nichols showed up. She sure was glad, too, since he was part of her
plan. She was grinning at him. He asked her what kind of woman she
was. “You must have some idea, you’ve been trying hard enough to
find out!” she declared.
He was a little leery about coming too close to her. He was afraid
she’d slap him in the face again. Nora just laughed. “The look you
gave me when you were hiring the buggy in the livery,” Nichols
“Look?” Nora asked coyly.
“I’d be sure to know what it meant, coming from a saloon girl.” He
slowly walked up to her until their faces were only inches from each
others. She told him that he’d be surprised at how many ladies dream
of being saloon girls. He suddenly grabbed her and kissed her hard.
“When I finish my business tomorrow night, how would you like to go
to Denver with me?” They stayed in a passionate embrace.
“My cup runneth over,” Nora declared passionately.
“I want people to stare and wonder how Jud Nichols got a woman like
She was watching for me to come. As soon as I came into sight she
let out a loud, blood-curling scream. She slapped Nichols hard
across the face and purposely ripped her shirt. Then she started
fighting with Nichols.
So, by the time I got up to the two, I thought he was assaulting
her. When she saw me, she screamed, "Look out Lucas, he's got a gun,
he's gonna kill you!" She ran over to me crying. I could tell she
had just been through something. “He wouldn’t leave me alone!” she
“That woman’s out of her mind,” Nichols declared as he pointed at
her. I pointed my rifle at him. He took off his gun belt. “And
you’re not crowding me into anything, McCain. I know your reputation
with that rifle.”
“Alright, Nichols, we’ll do it your way,” I stated as I handed Nora
He kept talking as I walked toward him. "She's makin' a fool out of
both of us. Why, she's nothing but a..."
Bang! Suddenly, as he put up his fist to hit me, a shot rang through
the air. I immediately turned around and saw Nora aiming the gun
straight at Nichols. Smoke was still blowing around the rifle from
the shot. I was mortified! I turned and saw Nichols fall to the
ground. I hurried over to him. He was dead.
I was suddenly confused as I looked up at Nora. "Why you'd do it?" I
asked her. My voice was full of hurt and disbelief. She didn't
answer, but just stood there in silence and stared at the ground
where Nichols’ body lay. I stood up and walked over to her "Nora,
why?" I asked sternly.
She stared at me straight in the eye and flat out lied to me. "I
don't know what happened. The gun just went off," she tried to
But I knew it was on purpose, and no amount of arguing would change
my opinion. I grabbed my rifle from her and stared at her. "You have
to cock the lever before the gun goes off, Nora."
She turned on the tears then, hoping that would help her case of
murder. "I don't know how it happened Lucas. I was so frightened, I
was out of my mind!"
"Your lying to me," I stated. At that moment, she knew I wasn’t a
man she could talk into allowing her to get away with a scheme like
hers. She started to walk away from me but I grabbed her hard. I was
angry and felt betrayed. "Why Nora, why?"
"He was going to kill Chad Morgan over a gambling debt,” she stated.
"Morgan? That boy who's been gambling at the saloon?" I asked.
"That boy is gonna marry me,” she insisted.
"How are you gonna explain Nichols?"
"Me, why you killed him Lucas to protect my honor. It was a fair
fight. He drew first. Or if that's not the way you see it, I might
be forced to tell the truth." She was talking in a evil voice – a
voice that held only contentment in it, a voice that was desperate.
"The truth," I said. Obviously her version and my version was going
to be different.
"Yes, you shot him in cold blood," Nora suggested. "You were
jealous. I'm sure there's a lot of people in this town who knows
were old friends. That we were seriously thinking of, should we say,
I was angry! I’d had enough of her! I pushed her away and headed for
the saloon and for Morgan. I didn’t have to worry about her getting
away – she’d show up in North Fork!
Chad managed to win the big one just before I got there. Boy, was he
relieved! Micah just happened to show up when I was staring inside.
I gave Micah my rifle and hurried over to Chad. I angrily grabbed
him by the shirt. “You got something to tell the Marshal. Start
talking,” I demanded.
He suddenly insisted that he had won fair and square. “You know what
I mean! You and Mrs. Sanford. The two of you had me set up to kill
Nichols, is that right?” I declared angrily. He suddenly told me he
didn’t know of any plan to kill him. I slapped him across the face
and told him to start talking. “You’re in trouble, Mister! Talk,” I
“Well sure,” he admitted. “She said she was gonna play up to ya'.
That’s why she came here, to play on your sympathies. But that’s all
she told me! I swear!”
I stared at him, still very angry. “Well, Nichols is dead. She just
shot him in cold blood,” I informed him through clinched teeth.
“But I just won enough money to pay off Nichols!”
“You won?” Nora suddenly cried from the door. She suddenly started
crying and laughing at the same time. Her laugh was nervous –
delirious. We stared at her in wonderment. She walked up to us.
“Well, why don’t you laugh to Chad? Don’t you see the joke? I killed
him for nothing!” Suddenly, her laughter disappeared as she came to
a sickening realization. “And now you have all that money to
yourself. You’ll be free to find another woman. I’ll be left alone.
She started crying and fell to the floor. “All alone!”
I walked out, leaving her there to cry. I never looked back.
That night, in the silence of the house after things had settled
down, I pulled my big leather chair around to the fire. Then I sat
down in it and just stared into the fire.
I was so…very hurt. A
women whom I was in love with to the point of marriage had delivered
me the ultimate deception. I was humbled. Looking back on the past
Somewhere in my mind, I heard Mark moving around. I turned my head
just a bit and said, “You oughta be in bed, Mark.”
Mark just stood in the doorway of the bedroom and answered, “In a
little, Pa.” He walked over to my chair. “I still can’t believe it
about Mrs. Sanford,” he commented. “I guess I’m not a very good
judge of character.” He sat down on the edge of my chair.
I just continued staring at the fire. “It’s pretty hard to judge a
person’s character, knowing her for such a short time. Remember,
I've known Nora for many years. Sometimes it can be a cruel thing
when someone you know changes. Cruel and sad."
I suddenly had this urge to get back to normal. I looked at my son.
“You still want to go fishing in the morning?” I asked as I put my
hand on his leg.
I suppose that Mark was a little shock with my question. He figured
that was the last thing on my mind. "Yeah sure!" He said. I told him
he better get to bed.
I turned and stared at the wall. I wanted to be alone and think some
more on the hard lesson I had learned that day. Like I said, life
sure can be rough when a friend deceives you!
