Story intro

In an opening scene, Lizzy, covered in blood, holds Gideon and Emma's dead baby while Isaac and Gideon wait outside. Gideon takes the baby and begins to scream. Back home, Lizzy washes the blood from her body and Isaac storms into the cabin. He sets Lizzy's gun down and stands behind her. Gideon and Isaac bury Emma while Lizzy looks on. Gideon sets the baby's corpse into the casket with his mother. Isaac and Gideon leave on horseback as Gideon plans to sell his land and move back to Illinois. Lizzy tells Isaac that Emma had her gun. Isaac ignores this and encourages her to be ready for the winter and to "keep her wits about her." He plans to return in a couple of days. Lizzy looks at a bloody table and remembers Gideon yelling at her to get the baby out. She holds a knife and remembers performing a caesarean on Emma's corpse while she cleans the table. As the sun sets, Lizzy continues performing household chores, when suddenly, two wolves appear and begin to chase her into her cabin. She chains the door as the wolves try to break in. Something man-sized begins to try to move the chain but Lizzy fires her gun at the door and both the figure and the wolves finally leave. In a flashback, Isaac tells Lizzy that they have new neighbors. Isaac has invited them over for dinner. He tells her that they seem "funny". While the couples have dinner in the Macklin home, Isaac talks about the work that the Hapers have ahead of them. He and Lizzy offer to help. In the present, Lizzy walks outside and looks for the wolves but sees nothing except the corpse of their only goat which something has taken a large bite out of. She notices large claw marks on the door of the cabin. She also finds blood on her hands and tries to wash it off unsuccessfully. Lizzy then lies down in bed, holding her rifle while she thinks about the past.
