The Hiding Place, Part 1
By Mary Lynn Bushong
  

1     John and Miguel hid under a tight bunch of shrubs near a trickling creek. They were pretending to be Ranger scouts.
 
2     Two days before, their fathers had taken a wagon to make the two week trip for supplies to the nearest trading post. While their fathers were away, their mothers seemed to find a lot of extra work for them to do. Escaping to the creek gave them some respite.
 
3     "After all," said John, "with our fathers gone, we're the men around here."
 
4     "What plan should we make in case of an Indian attack?" asked Miguel.
 
5     "You think it will happen?" asked John. A worried crease formed on his forehead.
 
6     Miguel shrugged his shoulders. "I don't know. My father thought it might happen. He didn't want to go, but we needed supplies."
 
7     "I wish we could be like one of Austin's Rangers," said John.
 
8     "I don't," said Miguel. "They could hardly do anything at first without getting picked off with arrows. At least they have Colt revolvers now."
 
9     John nodded his head. He did not really believe there was anything to be afraid of. After all, their adjoining homesteads had always been quiet.
