kells is the only man I've seen who can throw a gun quicker than I. Gulden is a big bull.
kells was tightening the cinch on her saddle while he spoke.
kells dragged the rude door into position, and then, mounting, he called to Joan to follow.
It struck her forcibly that she had lost some of her fear of kells and she did not know why.

kells suddenly came to her, treading noiselessly, and he leaned over her.
