Summary:

Ben arrives home to find Joe at death's door after a hunting accident, bringing back eerie memories from an incident he has tried for fifteen years to forget. Before the night is over, both he and Adam will have to face their inner demons. Written for Ponderosa Nightmares 2017. 

This story is primarily a WHIB-WHN for "My Brother's Keeper," but it also includes references to events mentioned in "Marie, My Love," "Yonder Man," and the Ponderosa episode "Secrets and Lies" (I ONLY use Ponderosa as canon when it does not contradict the original series at all, which isn't often). JPM, APM, SBS.
