After following my sister around for a while now, keeping her out of all sorts of trouble, it was nice to see that she finally settled down in Louisiana to open a tavern called the Laughing Corpse. I know we are only down here because she chased the marshal. Guess she will never learn when it comes to guys.
She has been doing good raising Annie the Irish way, but I know it’s only a matter of time though before she finds trouble or trouble finds her.No sooner did these thoughts cross my mind, wouldn’t you know it, a man in a black suit walk in and asks my sister to go listen to some meeting thing. Of course this is how trouble always seems to find her. The man, Tom Fordstrom, asked me if I am going to follow her. I said yes, as I thought to myself of course, because if I don’t she will get herself killed. I’m going to need to make sure I take all the whisky in the tavern with me. If I know her we are not going to be back for a long time.
Of course over the next few hours that fact that trouble always follows Belle around was proven to be true. First Tex walks in, funny thing is he received a letter saying Annie is in trouble. How he or anyone else knew Annie was missing when we just found out is strange, now if that wasn’t weird enough in walks the preacher. He received a telegram saying me and my sister were in trouble.
Now I know we won’t be back here for a long time.
So the next day comes along and we all get into a carriage along with another strange man. We arrive at a steam boat that apparently is going to take us to New Orleans. The boat is empty except us and the crew, thank god.
When we arrive in New Orleans, we are ushered into a meeting with a few other people. It turns out some body lost some very important scrolls and they could lead to a lot of dead. So now Belle, Tex, Preacher, and I as well as some new folks are searching for the scrolls and Annie in a swamp area.
