Legend Of The Black Dove - Part 4

                           Legend Of The Black Dove  
                              (Part 4) "The Imposter"

When the dust had settled in the pit, there was a movement
As the Black Dove had fortunately fallen between the pinnacles.
However, Jack Wild was not so lucky as he impaled himself upon 
One of these obelisks. The Dove took a running jump and found 
Himself atop of the pit, he ran over to rescue the other
Trapped men. Fate had been kind to his friend Rex Murphy,
While the other three men were hurt and needed medical attention.
The Dove and Murphy carry out the men to the Golden Coach,
Which took them back to Southerly. The local doctor managed to
Patch them up enough to be taken back to the local jail in Dover.
It was time to return the coach, so Rex Murphy and the
Black dove started back for Dover. By that time the Black Dove was 
Satisfied that he had finally tracked down the men who had
Murdered his friends. He lay down (leant against the seat-back)
In the coach for a rest. The coach was approaching Dover when 
Murphy notices a group of Men by the road. He stopped to investigate. 
As it turned out they Had been robbed by a masked man wearing a 
purple waistcoat with a Black Dove insignia on it. He had shot and 
killed two people before stealing their horses. Three passengers climb 
aboard the coach.  As they continue their journey to Dover. The imposter 
and his five Assailants, who had been lying in wait, emerged from behind 
the rocks. They where heavily armed and the leader disguised as 
the Black Dove Bade Murphy and his passengers to step out of the coach. 
In the Meantime the real Black Dove who was inside the coach, climbed 
Out of the window, sneaked around the coach and leaped to the 
Top of the rock. He picked out the Leader, then jumped off the rock 
Onto the horse grabbing the imposter and sending the horse into panic. 
The horse gallops off with the two men wrestling with each other.
The horse raced around the place near the swamp were the horse 
Sinks into quicksand. The two Doves were also trapped in the fast 
Sinking quicksand as they continue to struggle, Both finally sinking 
Out of sight......
Is this the end of the Black Dove and his imposter ?
Will any one succeed in rescuing them in time ?
Find out in the next exciting part...."Adventures On The High Seas"
