231. The revenge of the one-legged gunslinger

Today’s story is the third part of my one-legged gunslinger trilogy. This ‘threequel’ can be read as a self-contained story, but if you want to appreciate the entire story, why not check out the first part of the tale (story number 31) and its sequel (story number 131).

The revenge of the one-legged gunslinger would not contain a rolled R, as he had lost his tongue to a hungry buffalo. In Nothing Gorge, however, that tale was old news, as the entire town had gathered round Main Street to see the gunslinger finally take on the man who had cost him a leg, an arm and an ear: Scott Murray Jameson.

Contempt shot from the gunslinger’s one non-blind eye as he stood nose to nose with his nemesis.

“Ready to die?” Jameson snarled.

131. The return of the one-legged gunslinger

Today’s flash is a bit of a special one since it’s the first sequel of the lot. So, if you want to read the complete tale of the one-legged gunslinger, be sure to first feast your eyes on story number 31. And since I like this character so much, I can tell you that (like James Bond) the one-legged gunslinger will return… possibly for story number 231. Are there any other characters from my stories you’d like to see used in a sequel? Be sure to let me know in the comments!

The return of the one-legged gunslinger took Nothing Gorge by surprise.

It had been three months since the grumpy cowboy had set foot – or rather: hopped foot – into town, intent on revenge with a rolled R, in the wrong town.

The gunslinger hopped to the saloon counter. He was now missing an arm as well, luckily on the other side of his body as the absent leg, so it didn’t hinder his balance too much.

“Find Jameson?” the bartender asked, sliding a whisky the gunslinger’s way.
