Martha, whose stay with them was at first a simple good deed, then a delight and now so very much more.

Cynthia explained this was a second marriage and her first husband had died.
First off, I'm going to find out who owns that mine.
And someone else found them in the first place and told Caleb about the discovery.
That's Fitzgerald's first name.
They turned to her, as if aware for the first time that they weren't alone.

They reached the first turn.
It was then they heard the first noise.
As they neared the first turn, something glinted in the beam of Dean's flashlight.
Cynthia was the first to comment but Dean at first dismissed her concerns as mutual nervousness.
This isn't his first time here, Dean thought, but they took his exit as their cue
