Legend Of The Black Dove -2

 (Poem Serial)      Legend Of The Black Dove -2
                               "The Golden Coach"
As the water rises inside the Black Dove's coffin, he comes around and 

Smashes the timber apart with his bare fists, his aquired powers saved 

His life again. Realising he seems to have unlimited abilities, as

His jacket is totally drenched with water, he quickly climbs out of the 

Well and tries to find his horse Warrior. Noticing him grazing in the 

Paddock, he quickly mounts the horse and rides off like the wind. He heads

For Dover where his friend Rex Murphy is staying. Murphy is one of

The King's guards who is loyal to the Norrington Family, the Dove now 

Changes back into, John Norrington. He finds out that the Golden Coach

Will be taking a shipment of gold bullion to the royal mint in Cornwall. 

He realises he will have to follow the Golden Coach at a distance to keep 

From being spotted by the military escort. The coach leaves on schedule

As the three guards accompany the coach, Rex is driving the coach along

The infamous Dover road. He is unaware the Black Dove is following a 

Distance behind. some distance away Jack Wild's outlaw gang laying in wait 

Amongst rocks ready to ambush the guards and steal the gold.

Jack Wild gives his men the order to shoot. The guards dismount, one

Of them is shot dead while the other two are badly hurt. Jack Wild asked the 

Driver to step down off the coach. Murphy is outnumbered, so he follows

The outlaw's instructions. He is about to be shot when the Dove is sighted

By the outlaws. Rex runs and takes cover behind a rock, while the Dove 

Chases the outlaws. Gunshots ring out. As the horses harnessed to the coach

Bolt off pulling the coach without a driver. The dove takes down three

Of the outlaws. As they slowly overpower him the runaway horses are

Getting closer to the men. The Black Dove is thrown under the hooves of the

Oncoming horses, so has no chance of escape as the coach is about to 

Run over him.... Will Jack Wild finally take possession of the gold shipment,

Can anybody stop this outlaw gang? Find out in the next story...."Outlaw Peril"
