The boys are still trying to reach the Ranch but things go haywire when Morgan has a nightmare…
‘Morgan! Morgan! Are you alright?
‘Wha…? Bloody hell, that was weird.’
‘You were screaming something.’
‘I think it was eating those cheese straws last thing. We had a huge fight.’
‘What we should wear when we get to the Ranch.’
‘Oh yes. I said jeans. You said a pin-striped suit and spats.’
‘We fought. You died.’
‘I was found guilty of murder, you of a crime of fashion.’
‘What was the sentence?.’
‘Since you’d got death, I got life.’
‘They threw away the key?’
‘They said I’d suffered enough and let me go.’
