Overview

In The Lonely Men, Louis L’Amour spins the tale of a man who must elude an Apache trap—only to discover that his greatest enemy might be very close to home.

Tell Sackett had fought his share of Indians and managed to take something of value from his battles: a deep and abiding respect. But that respect is lost when Apache braves kidnap his nephew, forcing Tell to cross the border into the Sierra Madres to bring the boy back. What troubles Tell more, though, is the boy’s mother: Could she possibly be inventing a rescue mission to deliver her husband’s brother into an ambush?

Tell knows that the only things he can depend on are his wits and cold steel. But against such adversaries, even these formidable weapons may not be enough.

    Broken Heart Chapter 3

    (I know there are spelling and grammar errors in the story but nobody is perfect.)
    [Sonic's POV]"Better?" Amy nodded happily. I smiled and got up. "Well you better get some rest. You had a long day." I said. "No! Wait, please!" Amy cried. I turned back to her confused. "Can't you stay here?" She asked quietly. "I..l feel safer when you're around." I sat down on hospital bed beside her. "Ames, your perfectly safe in a hospital. Noone is going hurt you." I said. Amy twisted nervously at the blanket and looked back up at me. I sighed when she did her puppy dog eyes. "Alright but only one night. I'm not suppost to be in hospital at this time." I said. Amy smiled and nodded. She scooted to one side so she could make room for me. I laid down beside her. Amy laided her head on my chest. I froze up for a few minutes, unsure of what to do now. I then reached over and turned off the light. "Night Amy." I said as I laided back down. Amy yawned. "Good night Sonic. And thanks." She said as she nuzzled my neck lightly before resting back on my chest. I smiled and closed my eyes.
    [Amy's POV]
    I blinked opened my eyes. "Huh? Sonic?" I turned to see that Sonic was gone. I sighed sadly. After what had happened last night I was hoping he would stay. A nurse knocked on my door. "Ms.Rose, I have your medinces" She said. "Okay. Come in." I said. The nurse entered and handed me 2 different pills and a cup of water. I took my pills and the nurse asked me a few questions. She then got up and left. I then laid back down and winced as I put pressure on my back. I sat on my bed for a while, feeling lonely when I heard another knock at my door. "Uhh...come in." I said. My eyes lit up as Sonic entered the room with a shopping bag. "Sonic!" I cried happily. Sonic smiled. "Hey Ames." He said as he set the bag down. He took out a stryafoam box and placed it on my lap. "I went out to get you some breakfast. I know how much you hate hospital food." He said. I opened to find 3 starwberry pancakes with sryup and butter. There were still hot. Sonic took out his own and then headed me a fork. "Thank you Sonic. This is lovely." I said. Sonic got up. "I'll be right back." He said. He then rushed off. I picked up my fork and began to eating. Even though I had only one hand I managed fine. A few mintues later Sonic walks back in, carring two large cups. "Here you go Ames." Sonic said as he handed me a cup of orange juice. I took it and took a sip. Sonic started to eat his own pancakes. After we had ate Sonic came over and picked up my box. "Finish?" He asked. While Sonic was leaning down to take my box and cup I kissed his cheek. "Yea. I'm all finished." I whispered. Sonic pulled away surprised. He touched his cheek lightly. I blushed and turned away. Suddenly I felt Sonic's lips touch my cheek and when I turned to face him he gave me a peck on the cheek. When he pulled away he whispered. "Cream and the others will be coming soon." Before I could say anything else he walked away. Now call me crazy but I could of swore I saw Sonic blusing before he walking out of the room.
