THE DUEL - - - ★ ★ ★ A SHORT STORY = The woods were a scene of 1 great excitement this day of May 1, for there was to be a duel between two great men. It was eight o’clock and the duel was to start at eight ten. The duelists had arrived and were waiting for the seconds to roll by. Finally, the time came. The men lined up, their backs to each other. The ref- eree told them they were to shoot with the pistols given to them. As they stood there, each one realized the import- ance of true aim and firing. They knew that it meant life or death to the ones who were doing the shooting. Then the referee sang out, " All ready, then we will start.” He shout- ed, " I will now count off.” “ON(E” — T h e march had begun. “TWO” — Death for one of them was drawing By RALPH TESTER near. “THREE”— The men took the third step. “FOUR” 1 — And they had six more to go. “FIVE” — The end was drawing near. “SIX” — Four steps to go. “SEVEN” — Each man was fingering his gun. “EIGHT” — Their trigger finger tightened. “NINE” — One more to go. “TEN”— The time had come. Each man whirled around, took careful aim and fired. One of the men groaned and fell. The other shouted, “I got you Bobby,” as he looked down at his toy pistol which was still smoking from the cap which had been burst by the gun. Bobby got up slowly and said, “Well. Jim, I reckon you did, but I’ll get you the next time.” S. B. STEGER JR. • • DRY CLEANERS • • • PHONE 335 • • • PULASKI VIRGINIA
