Title:  The Doubt - A What Happened During for "Legacy"
Rated: PG for mild language
Summary:  Enjoyment of this story would be enhanced by viewing “The Legacy” from “Bonanza,” Season 5. In that episode, though we see Hoss and Joe return home to find their father alive, we never see Adam’s reunion with Ben. A friend said this was one scene she had always wanted to see. And I always was intrigued by the thoughts that must have been going through Adam’s head as he walked out of that store. So here’s my take.

Title:  A strong Man's Fear"
Rated: PG for mild language
Summary:  Adam is locked in a struggle to save his father's life. Can he keep his grip long enough to keep Ben from falling to his death?
