"We've all said things when we shouldn't have; it's why we sometimes need a bit of space to cool off," the Sheriff replied kindly, carefully studying the papers on his desk.

At the Jail

From his seat on the cell cot, Anthony could see most of the inside of the jail. The walls and floor were weathered pine boards, and the bars of his cell were heavy iron. Sheriff Milner was at his desk in the front, and didn't seem to be paying much attention to Anthony.

"Thanks, Doc--err, Sheriff--Milner. Say... how did you get to be sheriff here anyway? It sounds like quite the story but no one's told it yet."

“Town needed a sheriff, I just happened to be in the right place and the right time.”

At the Jail

Anthony grabbed the cell bars with both hands and let his head thunk gently against them, red hair falling over his face. He couldn't believe his ears.

"That's not a story!" Anthony complained. "Was there a white horse? Was it at sunset? How did you negotiate between Grace, Ben, and the resort folks? Why be a sheriff? Why not a lawyer or a judge?"

Some people had a gift for understatement. Others tried to brush off questions that led to uncomfortable subjects. Still others liked to let anticipation build before actually telling their story.

Anthony hoped it was the last one, but he was beginning to get the idea that today was a disappointing one.

"Sometimes, you just gotta do what is needed, what your hand finds to do," Milner said, turning back to his papers.

"That's a good start..." said Anthony, though he sounded dubious. "What happens next?"
