WHAT! What just happened! I can't understand what I have just read. What was the story in the beginning and what it became in the end. *so confused right now* (@_@)

This story has not much which I can describe. But for the love of overview I will try.
This is the story of a girl and a boy (literally, there are two but I don't consider second one) who are old friends, meet in the bus. Girl's friend is a marshal (maybe) who has a prisoner handcuffed with him

It's amazing how O. Henry was able to turn the whole story around with just that last sentence/dialogue. This story has stuck with me for years!

I liked the story. I liked how it was talking about going to the west. I thought it was really short.
