    Summary

    John and Arthur felt like they understood what home looked like and the meaning of family. After all that fell apart around them, ripped apart by violence and death, they are reunited. One of them struggles more than the other when it comes to picking up the broken pieces of their hearts, their bodies and even their image. Perhaps in time they will both understand that home isn't just where you hang your hat or what you make it, it's where your heart is.

    Summary

    Arthur leans against the tree to his left, flicks a match to life with his thumb. He lights a cigarette, eyes still on John. The dumbstruck face he's making is one that Arthur's seen often, in the time he's known him. In a minute, John will say he's confused.

    "I'm confused."

    "All I know is I spent three weeks half-dead in a tent in Canada. Woke up feeling like a damn spring pony. Came to find you."

    Summary

    For John Marston, nowhere felt like home. Not since the gang fell apart. The problem wasn’t the place nor the people there, it was him. Most days the urge to run and roam coursed so hot under his skin it was a wonder he hadn't burned up from the inside out yet. If he could just pay off Beecher’s Hope and have somewhere that his family and friends could live, grow, and be safe then maybe, just maybe, his restless bones would stop trying to jump clean out of him.

    Determined to pay off that bank loan, John goes to Gaptooth Breach in search of Esteban Cortez and the sixty-five dollars on his head. The thing is John isn't the only one after that bounty.

    Summary

    For so long now, Arthur has hounded John over all the things in his life he stands to lose if he don't get his damn head out of his ass and at least try to be a better, more responsible man. But during a trip alone together away from camp, some small, yet unexpected things change the perspective of that for Arthur. It opens Arthur's eyes into realising there is a whole lot in front of him he ain't nowhere near ready to let go of, himself.
