The Face Off
Cletus Abernathy, prompted by an upcoming morning duel, far removed from his glory days, is fraught with anxiety as he attempts to sharpen his skills one last time before confronting destiny by thinking back to his past training with Samantha Tilley. Abernathy grows increasingly confident until he is pulled out of his delusions by the rumors emerging from Ridge Wood (Tilley’s home town). Finally Abernathy is ripped away from the conversation as Crenshaw arrives in town. Attempting to avoid the duel Abernathy jumps out the back window only to find Crenshaw standing before him. Locking eyes the two men draw their pistols and pull the triggers.
