Together in Darkness (by Puchi Ann)

Summary:  Written for the 2018 Missing Man Challenge.  I have always felt that the drama of “To Die in Darkness” would have been intensified if Ben had experienced its situation with a son, rather than with Candy, much as I like him.  This challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity to explore that idea.

A Jack of Spades (by BettyHT)

SUMMARY: This began as a Pinecone but I couldn’t fit it all in there so here is the rest of the story — Little Joe Cartwright finds that having skill with a pistol and a fast draw isn’t the same as being good in a gunfight, and he has second thoughts about whether he should have gotten himself into such a predicament.
