Treachery #2

The Dark Tower: Treachery #2 (of 6)
Overview

Aileen comes up behind Cuthbert just as his pants had fallen down to meet the other boys challenge.

Cuthbert turns away from Aileen when Aileen shoots her gun to get his attention.

Steven Deschain's life was saved by Charles Champignon who threw himself between the grenade and Steven Deschain. Steven, Chris Johns and Robert Allgood stayed with Charles while others rode for help but it will most likely be too late. Steven places gunpowder in Charles' wound and cauterizes it. The smell of human flesh and gunpowder burning was odorous.

One of Farson's men tells Steven he has killed some of Farson's men and that he will lead the gunslingers to another group of them.

The boys had left their gun practice. Aileen stood further back than the boys had stood to shoot her target. She says, "I do not aim with my eye. She who aims with her eye has forgotten the face of her mother. I aim with my hand. I do not shoot with my hand. She who shoots with her hand has forgotten the face of her mother. I shoot with my mind. I do not kill with my gun. She who kills with her gun has forgotten the face of her mother. I kill with my heart."

She aims, shoots and the steer's scull is blasted into pieces.
