Arriving back to town there were several women with food trolleys out on the streets, trying to make a ribe or two by selling prepared meals, mostly meat stews and pies. They weren't hungry per say, but the scent of food definitely brought up their appetite and they were then very much looking forward to the “pritta” that Jimmy promised them.
There were plenty of children outside at that time too, doing all sorts of things – from playing with each other and helping their moms to polishing shoes and revolvers and taking care of the horses. Walking down the streets, the town definitely appeared much livelier than what they had experienced before.
During their walk through town several other men of all different ages joined them – Jimmy’s brothers. Tom and James were introduced to a total of 9 men, all Chuck’s sons and of working age.
Their house was newly built – as most of the others in that area – and looking at it from afar, it looked like a house that could house two regular families – definitely not the biggest of houses. There were several children outside, either working or playing, and plenty of women, too. One of the younger girls stepped up, hugged Chuck first and told him “pritta” was ready, then went on to hug her brothers. James and Tom were at the back, and she only noticed them later, pointing her finger at them from some distance, and asking out loud.
“Who are you two?” The little girl didn’t appear afraid, or in need of her father in any way. Even at a young age – probably about 4 or 5 – she was already a born fighter.
