     “It’s over,” Caleb said. “Better let me see to that wound.”
     “Let it alone. It’s too late for that.” Inman’s eyes burned with hatred. “I’m just trying to get strength enough to finish you.”
     “You’ll never get out by yourself.”
     “I know.”
     “You want to kill me that badly?”
     “Even if it’s with my dying breath.”
     Caleb glanced over to where his revolver had landed in the rocks, too far! Inman attempted to raise the rifle and it wavered.
