30. Father Spoke

His father spoke for the first time,  His voice cold and harsh, level,  without emphasis.  "I aim to.  I don't figure to stay in a country among people who......" he said something unprintable and vile,  addressed to no one.

That will do,  the Justice said.  Take your wagon and get out of this country before dark.  Case dismissed.

His father turned,  and he followed the stiff coat,  the skinny figure,  walking stiff,  followed two backs now,  and his older brother had appeared somewhere in the crowd.  He was no taller than his father but more muscle.  Smoking between two men and out of the store and across the gallery and down the steps.  Among dogs and boys in the May dust.  Where a voice hissed.

"Barn Burner"  Again he could not see,  whirling,  there was a face in a red haze.  Moon like,  bigger than the full  moon,  the owner of it half again his size.  He was leaping in the red haze toward the face,  feeling no blow,  and tasting no blood,  feeling no shock,  his head struck the wall.  To see another boy in full flight and his self already leaping at his father's hand that jerked him back.  The cold voice speaking to him.  "Get in the "Wagon"?  

There was locusts and mulberries across the road.  With two sisters and their mother were already in the wagon,  and items were in the wagon also.  Stove,  broken beds, a clock,  and some papers.  He got up to get out of the wagon and his father said,  sit down and do not move.
