Knightfall 
On the  long cold night of Decmber 4, 1911 a man rode  to a small town in Presidio County,Texas.He stopped at a local hotel and held lodgings there.He took off his duster and put down his bowlers hat.He grabed his repeater and layed it on the bed in the small room.
 
As he left the hotel later that night to go to the saloon he was aproached by a local man.
"Who are you", The local asked his breath smelling like alcohol.
"No one", The man replied.The local reaches for his knife and the man grabbed his arm and broke it.The local screamed as th man walks out of the hotel.
Later that night the man walked to the hotel and layed in bed.The next morning the man grabbed his reapeter and headed south towards Mexico.
Two days later he was a day from Mexico and a day from the nearest town.It was nearly nightfall when his horse was hit by a bullet.It crushed his leg as it fell.The man pushed the horse off when two bandits came and beat him with the butt of their guns.He fainted and awoke nearly an hour later.He was in hole in between the canyon walls of the area he noticed a rifle with a scope resting on a rock.
"Gringo",He heard  a man shout"GRINGO!"the man looked up to see his captor wearing a poncho,none of the others were wearing one.
"¿por qué estás aquí"one asked.
"What?"I replied.
"He asked why are you here?"The poncho man said.
"On buissness"The man yelled.and then darkness fell on the man as the gun butt smacked him on the side of his head.He awoke it was night his captors were asleep.He noticed that they left a knife nearby he grabbed it and cut his hands free.As the man stood there he remembered a saying an old man at his home town would say "Knightfall is dangerous cause the coyotees and wolves would get ya."Course the man would always tell the old man he spelled "knightfall" wrong.The man looked at his captors and one by one stabbed them till they were all dead and left when the night was young and the creatures were awake.
The man was still a day from good ol' Mexico but he was tired.he had no idea where he was and had no supplies but a r
He rested for awhile and fell asleep.He was awoken though by the sound of growling and there it was a wolf with its teeth bared and ready to attack course the man wasn't fast enough for the wolf attack him its teeth sunk into his calf.The man screamed as he plunged the knife into the wolf and watched it die.He stood and walked only twenty feet before he tripped and rolled into a hole where he slept till day but his slumber was eternal for the poncho man came in the night and shot the man only to search his clothes and find a letter with a saying scribbled on it.
Knightfall is dangerous it cause the coyotees and wolves can get ya but men with the noblest intentions can get swept up in her beauty only to suffer wrath.
