A/N: I only own the OCs.
Bohannan is back in Hell on Wheels thanks to Mr. Durant... he knew that it came with some exceptions since Durant has saved him, but he wasn't expecting this one.
I sighed as I looked around the small town that I had come back to… I wasn't really sure why I came back. I guess it was because I didn't want to hang. I knew that I had made a deal with the devil when I agreed to this, but I didn't want to meet the devil anytime soon.
I heard the thunder in the distance and the town didn't seem notice. The saloon was full of noise and drunks. The whores had business coming and going at all hours. The towns people were all in their tents and part of the town looked quiet. I couldn't shake a feeling that something was going to happen, but who was I kidding… this is Hell on Wheels something always happens. I flicked my cigarette out and went into the train car I called home.
I had a restless night as I thought about how everything had changed so much in the last three months since I had ran from here. I knew that running was the right thing at the time. I had to admit I liked robbing the trains, but I could have choosen better companions.
I finally awoke the next morning and went to see Durant. I had a meeting with him ever day to discuss the town and other things. I didn't like these meetings because I always had to see Lily. I admit when I first saw her there was something about her. I just didn't feel much now, especially after she started to bed with Durant. I am sure she had her reasons, but they weren't anything I needed to know.
I walked into the office and there was no sight of Lily. I was glad for that, but I'm sure she was somewhere nearby.
"Come on, sit… I haven't got all day." Durant said as I took off my hat. I sat down and one of the workers brought us coffee. Durant has everyone working for him even if they didn't want to.
"I have noticed that you have readjusted quite well." He said and I nodded.
"A little too well from what I hear… you took a man out of the saloon because he took your liquor?" he asked me and I shrugged.
"Look at me!" he snapped and I looked up at him.
"I didn't bring you back here to ruin my town! I need you to calm down. I have a niece that is coming out here and I am having her stay with you." He said and I was not going to do that.
"No!" I said as I stood up.
"Sit down, Mr. Bohannan. I can kill you myself since I am the one who saved you!" he said and I knew I really didn't have a choice.
"I want me niece to stay with you and help you in your car, much like Mrs. Bell does for me. I also think a women's touch would be good for you. You can't keep killing men who look at you wrong, beating up the workers, and getting drunk every night." He said and I sighed. I had done that before I left, so I didn't know why it was a big deal now.
"Fine. When does she arrive?" I asked him.
"Tomorrow on the train… Lily is going to be working with her as well." He said and I nodded.
"Yes sir." I said and walked out of the place. I was glad that Lily wasn't at that meeting.
I was going around the town when I spotted Lily. She was talking to Eva and they were now friends since Eva had become a 'proper' woman as Elam put it. I watched them a second longer before going to find Elam. We had to ride out to meet the men.
I got on my horse and was starting out towards the edge of camp to find Elam when the Swed stopped me.
"I heard that you are in need of a woman's touch." He said and I shook my head before riding off. He had always been a thorn in my side. I kinda wish he had been on the yankees I had killed in the war.
