However, Larribee mocks Colt for not having the guts to carry shooting irons and begins whipping him next, however the sheriff soon comes and stops him form hurting the boy too much. The sheriff then orders Gabby to carry Colt out of town, warning that if Blaine starts trouble again he will be thrown in jail.

Blaine and Gabby ride back to the Colt ranch where Blaine explains to his father what happened. Mr. Colt is furious that his own son got whipped and is too afraid to carry guns. Before his father can go into town and face Larribee to avoid looking like a fool, Blaine tries to stop him, but his father does not listen. Blaine then goes out to the Line Camp with Gabby. Along the way Gabby asks Blaine why he and his father don't get along better, and Blaine explains that his father and him are too alike with quick tempers. As they ride the range, Blaine comes across a rattler, and quickly pulls the gun from Gabby's holster and shoots the rattler dead. Gabby realizes that Blaine is a crack shot and realizes that Blaine doesn't carry guns because he does not want to kill anybody.

The following morning at the Box C Line Camp, Colt and Gabby are visited by the sheriff. The sheriff puts Blaine under arrest for the murder of his father. Gabby throws coffee in the sheriff's face to allow Colt to escape, but Lash Larribee is there an ensnares the youth in his whip. Gabby is winged with a bullet for his troubles. Blaine Colt is then taken into Purgatory and placed in a jail to stand trial for his father's murder. The sheriff claims that Colt smashed his fathers head in after losing a poker game, knowing this is not true, Blaine denies it but it does him no good.

As Blaine mourns his father's death, Gabby comes to the bared window of his cell. Tying ropes to the bars Gabby has their horses yank them off the window freeing Blaine. After hiding out the two go to the mortician's to look at the corpse of Blaine's father. Examining the body, they both see that he wasn't killed by a blow to the head, but a shotgun blast from a Buffalo Rifle. Realizing that the sheriff is the only one with such a rifle, Blaine realizes the truth. Drawing his fathers guns, Blaine becomes determined to avenge his father's death.

After a posse is sent out into the range to search for Blaine, he and Gabby spot the sheriff entering his office. Blaine sends Gabby to get their horses and goes to the office. He bursts in through the window and accuses the sheriff of killing his father. When the sheriff admits it the duel and Colt easily wins, shooting the sheriff dead. Hearing shots from outside, Blaine rushes outside to see that Gabby has been shot by Lash Larribee. Before Larribee can begin whipping the dying old man, Blaine gets into the middle of things and takes a crack of the whip to the face. The quick drawing boy then shoots Lash through the hand before he can draw on him. Colt then grabs the whip and beats Lash to death. With everyone who knows the truth dead, and the posse returning to town, Blaine realizes he has no other choice but to flee town, riding off into the range an outlaw of a crime he did not commit... Thus starts the legendary journey of the outlaw known as Kid Colt.

Synopsis for "A Killer in God's Acres"Edit

Kid Colt is camping out for the night in the bush when he is suddenly approached by Pecos Pete, another outlaw on the run from the authorities. Recognizing Kid Colt, Pete asks to join up with him, however Colt has no interest in joining out with a genuine law breaker. However their palaver is cut short when the law spots them sending them both fleeing from a hail of bullets. Kid Colt is struck by one and passes out while his horse continues to ride him out of the way of danger.

The horse is found by a man named Jim Cabot, a Quaker from the town of God's Acre who brings Kid Colt into town and patches him up. When Kid Colt comes out of his coma days later he finds himself patched up, but his guns gone. Jim doesn't recognize him but explains that guns are not allowed in God's Acre. They are soon visited by the sheriff. Colt tenses but the sheriff tells him not to worry, that everyone who comes to God's Acre is given a fair chance and that he is welcome to stay. Kid Colt spends the next few days healing and spending time among the people of the town, and begins to consider staying in the peaceful mountain town away from the world outside that constantly hunts him.

Unfortunately, things come to a cruel end when Pecos Pete trails him back to God's Acre and once more offers to join up. When Kid Colt refuses, telling him he'd rather stay, Pete agrees that they can both take over the town and rule over it. Colt is horrified and beats him down making him drop his gun. The sheriff comes by and breaks up the fight. He then tells Pete to leave with his gun as they are not welcome in the area and sends Kid Colt to the telegraph office to send a message. Kid Colt returns outside when he hears commotion and goes out to investigate. Someone has ridden to the sheriff and informed him that Pecos Pete has gunned down Jim Cabot and robbed him. Seeing the body for himself, Kid Colt realizes that justice must be done. Reclaiming his guns he tracks down Pecos Pete and guns him down.

The sheriff arrives and thanks Kid Colt, showing him a telegram that came in alerting them that Pecos Pete was in the area. The telegram also warns about Kid Colt's arrival, but the sheriff is convinced that Kid Colt is not a bad person and allows him to leave.

He explains that their leader Cash Collins was smitten by her and when he came courting, Olin sent him away, and in response kidnapped her. He had shot at Kid Colt because he thought him one of the Six-Gun's.

Cash Collins then gathers his men to rob a bank. In order to avoid the raid, Kid Colt ties a string around his horses foot to make it seems like it was injured and is limping it convinces Cash to send him back telling him to meet them in three weeks at their hideout.
