Hooray for Sport!
The title is smack on the mark for this one. I was expecting something evil and certainly was not disappointed. The interaction between the brothers show their natural inclination toward brotherly love as well as how chores were divided during Ben's absence. Did Adam ever collect the money from the bank to pay the hands? I couldn't say, but I do know that he understood his responsibilities quite well.
Great descriptions of that wicked one kept me on edge until the resolution. I guess we all know there would be that happy ending but I was filled with foreboding until that moment arrived.
Sweet dream Little Joe, your brothers, and Sport, are watching out for you.
