DARK TOWER: THE GUNSLINGER BORN No. 7
THE GUNSLINGER BORN No. 7
Overview

Rhea led them to Susan’s hiding place.  Jonas kicked Susan and told Reynolds to bring her back to town.  Jonas had to force Rhea to give him the pink glass ball.  Sheemie follows Reynolds and Susan.  He had just gone outside when Jonas had arrived; otherwise he would have been dead.

Jonas and Depape lead twenty-five men to the battle where they will be ambushed east of Hanging Rock.  Roland, Alain and Cuthbert attached from the rear with metal balls thrown by a sling-shot, knives and daggers.  At first it was easy killing but after the first five or six it just became all-out killing.  The gunslingers used their talents and youthful skills and turned the area east of Hanging Rock into a death field.  Cuthbert takes out Depape.  Jonas swears he will break the glass ball before he dies.  Roland shoots him twice in the face.

They place the glass ball in its bag.  Alain finds a machine gun.  They now head to the Oil Refinery and the tanks.

Rhea hypnotizes Cordelia Delgado, Susan’s aunt.  She needs nourishment and she drinks blood from Cordelia’s stomach where Rhea had sliced her open.

Latigo is starting to move out the tanks when his men are attached with a machine gun.  Alain’s bullets from the machine gun set the oil tankers on fire and there were great explosions.  Latigo gives the order to follow the gunslingers into the canyon as Latigo saw where they had gone.

Rhea and Susan’s Aunt told the people at the Traveler’s Rest that they must burn Susan because she is a traitor to her town and murderer of her own people.  Aunt Cordelia said, “…Charyou Tree.”

Latigo leads his men into the canyon.  They outnumber the boys nearly a hundred to one but Latigo still feels an impending doom.   Once inside the canyon, the gunslingers set the grasses on fire and trapped Latigo and his men.  Then Latigo’s men start hearing the inviting voices of the thinny and the horses and the men are taken by a giant octopus-like creature.  The boys see the results of their plan and they feel no guilt. 

The ball calls to Roland.  It tells him, “You will kill everything and everyone you love…”  In the ball Roland sees Susan burning and people chanting around her, “ Charyou Tree, Charyou Tree.”  Susan thinks of Roland’s laughter and does not feel the pain as her clothes and hair burst into flame.  Susan shouts, “ROLAND, I LOVE THEE!” 

The boys can’t get the ball away from Roland and he just watches her burn.  He will never have the laughter that Susan knew the rest of his life.

Jonas finds Susan.
Hile! Hile! To me, gunslingers! To me!
Roland shoots Jonas in the face twice.
Latigo's 200 men and horses are killed by the thinny moster.
Susan, shouting in flames, "Roland, I love thee!"
