Holding each other and gasping, they collapsed against the rock.  Curry glared at the malevolent sphere pulsing down on them, sucking their lives into its incessant glow. His eyesight dimming to a narrow tunnel, he knew they were done.  This was how they'd end their days.  Still something niggled at the edge of his vision.  He turned his head and a light, a different light, shimmered and danced, leading his gaze over the ridge.  With his last strength he followed to the rim and looked over.  There, lambent light skipping and laughing across its surface, lay a pool of water.  Not caring if it was a mirage he flung himself down the slope, greedily gulping in mouthfuls of the lifesaving elixir.  "Heyes!  Heyes!" he called and flung himself into the pool, his body a sponge thirstily soaking in the moisture as Heyes crawled to him then, seeing the water rushed to join him, laughing and shouting.  Today they would live.

The smoke from the engine drifted aimlessly in night air and strung itself through a lacework of wispy clouds as the train rattled off through the October night.  The countryside was lit by the lambent silver moon hanging in black velvet sky pricked by twinkling points of light.  The fair-haired man shifted on the seat and stretched a leg out into the aisle.  The hat over his face wasn’t doing it.  It might be midnight, but sleep simply wasn’t coming despite the soporific lightness of the clicketty-clack from the rocking railway car.  He pushed the hat back with a long forefinger and blinked in the darkness of the railway car.  His partner was sitting fixated on something in the aisle; sitting upright and tense in the seat opposite.

He stared straight ahead in the darkness, at a wall – or an ethereal reminiscence, lit only by spare illumination from lambent gas lamps in the street below.  What played in his thoughts was no mistake, no play on his vision:  He beheld a boy on a horse, stared at him as if his life depended on it, searing a moment in time forever.  Those eyes!  He would never, could never, forget those eyes.  And the being staring back had seemingly also seen a ghost.  Except the mutual ghosts were real, figments of the great long ago, when times were ugly and men fought.  But, two boys, now grown, locked eyes in a struggle to recall, or forget.  Lives moved on, but time coursed through shadows on a wall, remembering, eternally, still.

The outline of a man blotted out the gaslight glow escaping from the saloon doors.  The shadow paused on the boardwalk, and the flash of a struck match was followed by the flare of a puffed cigar.  The man stepped off the boardwalk and the bobbing tip of the cigar moved into the street.   Flimsy clouds fluttered in a stray breeze, while the top sliver of a rising moon crested the roofs of the waterfront buildings and cast a flickering, lambent path across the placid flow of the Missouri river.  The shadow in the street turned his face to the rising moon.   In the lunar light Heyes recognized Sam Ackerly.

Seemingly unaware she was the topic of conversation, Li Ming gracefully carried on with her duties. She drew back the velvet draperies, allowing lambent light to pour into the room. The light glimmered through the prisms of the opulent chandeliers, creating flickers of gold that danced fluidly across the surface of the richly papered walls.
