Prompt: good-bye

part 16 of the Expanded Blue Mountain Stories series: Blue Mountain

On the fifteenth day, they arrived at a large Muscogee village.

“Where are we?” Wallace asked as the village gathered round, curious about the visitors.

“Snoden,” Ernest said. “It’s the largest village around. Take the mules and unload them into that lodge.” Ernest pointed out a building on the edge of the village.

With the Indians help, the boys quickly unloaded the mules, but when they tried to leave the lodge, their smiling hosts and their sharp spears barred their way.

“What’s going on!” Wallace yelled out the door to Ernest.

Smiling, Ernest said, “Told you boys, you’ve got value.”
