    Logan walked into the clinic and saw Winter there. "How's it goin', Darlin'? Finally talked to Lottie. She has some bad enemies. At least she is gonna settle an' just take the engine. It would be bad for everyone if we had to deal with those damned Pinkertons. Gotta get some papers together out of the office to send with her settlement letter." Logan paused. "When you have a moment I need to talk to you alone."

    Logan nodded. "sounds good. I'd better get the paperwork together I need to send with this." Logan headed off to the clinic to use the office and get his paperwork together.

    Logan took the letter. "I know about you stayin' apart. I had a talk with Aspen after I talked with you last. I don't understand it, no. Two women be friend I understand. Lovers? Just don't understand it. Know I don't hate you for it. I just don't understand it. My main worries about it are the troubles other may cause because of it. If you truly love her just be careful for her sake. The best advice I can offer is to try to get out and make friends in town, alone. At night what you two do is your business but in the day the town just needs to see you as two single friends helping each other out. I didn't know you were starting a railroad company. Don't worry, id not spend all the money I have an' leave my family hurtin'. I'll get this letter out right away to the lawyer. Maybe you should have supper with my Wife and I some night. I hear my mother in law will be coming into town and my wife says she may be most unpleasant. Maybe we can get a drink an' complain about her sometime. I'd better get this out now. Don't want those asshats gettin' too impatient. I know you want to get that engine working. I'll sign off on repairs but don't run it until we get the paperwork back."

    Logan frowned a bit. "Nothin' good, I'm afraid. Whoever is tryin' to take this away from you wants it bad an' they have deep pockets. I had a lawyer do some inquiries as well. It's lookin' grim. They wanted to send Pinkertons out. I am aware of your current relationship with my sister in law. Can't say as I'm happy about it but I'm more understandin' than some of these folks. As long as Aspen is safe and Happy and my Niece or Nephew is taken good care of that's all I care about." Logan paused and sighed. "You can't win this court case. If the Pinkertons came it would be over for you. The lawyer had to pay the police to validate the paperwork on the train theft. He says they were very nervous though. Someone is payin' folks off left an' right. I don't like it one bit. The lawyer said there is only one good outcome an' I think I said it last time we talked. He has them holdin' off the Pinkertons on your word. If you give up the company they will validate that this train is indeed your property an' let you live your life as you see fit. Personally I don't like it at all but if you don't they will send in the Pinkertons, they will find out about you and Aspen. You will loose everything, may end up in jail if not in a ward for the insane. Aspen may end up in a ward as well and the baby will be taken away from her. I don't want to see that. If you choose to fight them it's out of my hands. If you let it go, an' take the engine I'd be willin' to invest in you. I have some money set aside an' I need some cash flow For my wife an' children in case something happens to me. You drop the case an' I'll buy a new engine an' cars for you to run for a fair percentage. It's up to you. If it helps provide for my family an' will help provide for my sister in law an' her child I'm all for it. I just can't fight the law for you, whether I agree with it or not."

    Logan walked towards the rail office, looking again at the papers in his hand. He frowned at them. He didn't like con artists but he was dealing with some. As he approached he saw Lottie dealing with rail business. He approached her anyway. "Mornin' Ms Lottie. Was wondering' if you had time to show me the locomotive an' go over some papers with me on your case?"

    Logan nodded. "I realize that. Just needed time to straighten out my mind but now I think I have. It just took me longer than some thought it should. Movin' on is the plan thanks again, Ms Caitlyn." Logan gave her a smile and a nod and walked out of the saloon

    Logan smiled. "Well now, Ms Caitlyn, I don't reckon you're a kid anymore but it is Magdalena and my business an' burdenin' anyone else with it was never my intention. I hope that doesn't keep you away from the ranch. Winter an I would enjoy your company sometime. Maybe you an' Torin could come up for supper some evenin'. I don't know if Sunday supper is happening' again anytime soon. Even so wouldn't blame you if you didn't come. Thonkin' 'bout not show in' up myself!" The last bit he said with a grin and though not truly funny it was what he considered an attempt at humor. He chuckled lightly then returned to his normal somber look. "Thanks for the advice. I..I don't have a lot of experience with kids. Winter didn't think she could have anymore. I didn't know about Eva until Magdalena showed up and same with Isabella. My first wife was killed while pregnant durin' the war. I just figured We'd never have a family. I was fine with that as I love my wife dearly and not having children didn't make me love her any less. It's all kinda new to me. The local kids I just never had a lot of interaction with other than scarin' one or two for Mal on occasion when needed. Though he can put the fear of the almighty in them himself. He just likes to have them think more than his eyes are on them. But honestly any advice is appreciated. Was gonna talk to Magdalena about that last night but I messed up early on and then just lost my temper, I reckon. " He stood up off the bar stool getting ready to leave. "I do thank you for bakin' those for them. At least let me pay for the ingredients. I'll try to order some chocolate for next time. Oh, an' don't tell them I suggested it or anythin'. They don't need to know. I do appreciate you, Ms Caitlyn."

    Logan nodded. "Mornin' Ms Caitlyn. I do want to apologize about Sunday dinner. That was awkward for you, I'm sure. Just been working' through some things that hit me pretty hard. But that's not why i needed to talk with you, though I have wanted to apologize. I was wondering' if I could pay you to bake some cookies for the girls an' their friend for their fort buildin' this afternoon?"

    Logan shook his head slightly. He was trying not to sound cold but he spoke in a low, even voice and said as little as possible "No, I reckon not. Magdalena." He nodded and turned and left, heading to the saloon, without another word. He entered the saloon and sat at the bar to wait.

    Logan wasn't really smiling to begin with as he just normally didn't, but had he been he wouldn't be now. Though cleaned up he still looked worn rode hard and put up wet. He really didn't want to do this now, especially if the girls were still there. "Magdalena. I do apologize for last night. I'm sorry, I'm not proud of how I acted. Honestly though, I didn't come to talk to you. I would like to talk to you about our daughter sometime very soon but I actually came to talk to Caitlyn about some baking. I can come back later though."

    Logan nodded. "yeah, not sure if we want a repeat of yesterday. The mornin' an' afternoon were great but the evenin' was hell." He gave her a smile, grabbed his pistol from last night that Winter had left on the table, walked out the door, and got up on his horse. He rode to the clinic and left his horse there. Once there he walked over to Magdalena's house and knocked on the kitchen door. He sure hoped she wasn't there as though he needed to talk to her he wasn't ready yet. (7:30 - 8:00 am?)

    After he had finished his coffee and washed up he put on some fresh clothes and walked back to the house. Once there he saddled a horse and hitched it to the rail by the house he went inside to grab his gear and properly kiss his wife good morning.

    Logan nodded. "Ok. Good. I'd kiss you know but I'd better go clean up first." Logan went upstairs and grabbed some clean clothes and some soap. He. Came down, refilled his coffee, adding another shot to it, and headed for the river. Once there he stripped down and slowly climbed in. The water was a bit cool, as it was still fairly early, but it felt good on his aching shoulder and head. He sat in the current for a bit, drinking his coffee before washing up.

    Logan nodded as he stood up. "That sounds good. Think I'm gonna stop an' see Caitlyn too. See if I can pay her to bake some cookies for the girls. They should have a snack while buildin' their fort. If it's a bad idea let me know. I've got a lot to learn on raisin' kids I reckon."
