Widower Lumberjack Dusty Miller stood in the back of the crowd of fifty lonely men, they were all waiting for the bride train to arrive. In Lonespine there was a shortage of good woman, due to the outbreak of smallpox, three years ago. His wife Flora and two sons didn’t survive. Dusty wasn’t looking for love, he just wanted a good fuck. He could get that anytime he wanted at Georgia’s Pleasure House. So why was he here?

He married Flora at the age of twenty, and she was his first love. For the first three years of marriage, they couldn’t keep their hands of each other. Flora wanted to have children, but she couldn’t carry a baby to term. The marriage was beginning to crumble before his eyes, and he didn’t know how to help her. It killed him to see her suffering so much. Flora left him for a short time, and he was worried she would leave him for good. But four months later she came back to him, and all was right with the world. Nine months later they welcomed Jacob into the world. A year before the outbreak of smallpox, David was born. Flora finally had the family she had always wanted, and he loved his wife more and more each day.

His heart broke the day he had to bury Jacob and David. He couldn’t tell Flora about them having the illness too. A few days before Flora passed away, she told him to kiss her babies for her. Raise them to be good men. He told her that he would. She had no idea her babies would be up in heaven with her, and he would be the one all alone.

Dusty wasn’t sure if he ever wanted to get married again, but his brother Rance talked him into at least checking out the brides. Never hurt to look. The crowd was winding down, and many men left with a woman on their arm to the church to get married. His heart began to ache with thoughts of his sweet departed wife. She was so beautiful on their wedding day. He couldn’t afford a ring, and she said it didn’t matter, all that mattered was the love they shared.

He turned his attention back to the remaining brides, two blondes, three brunettes, and two with black hair. None of them tucked at his heart or cock, so he turned to leave the train station. He found himself inexplicably dissatisfied. The next bridal train wouldn’t be for another six months. Another long six months of loneliness. Dusty turned his head to take one last look at the brides still waiting. How did he miss the redhead? She wasn’t there a moment ago, or was he going blind.
