One day she heard Sam selling onions in the street, she ran outside and wanted to hug him but she couldn't bring herself to do it so she hugged his goat instead.
After she hugged his goat Sam asked her what was going on but she didn't answer, all she did was stare at him, a moment later he kissed her. But they were to busy kissing to notice someone had seen them !
The next day Kate was in the school house when suddenly a mob of people came in and started to destroy the place, so she ran to the sheriff and told him but he wouldn't help her, so she went to same and told him they must run away. the people were after them because Kate was white and Sam was black and it was a rule that black and white people couldn't be together.
They were going to escape by crossing the river and going to another town but they didn't make it, the people got to them and killed Sam and his goat but left Kate to survive because she was white.
After that Kate spent her life in sadness, she had left Green Lake after she had killed the sheriff, she also got into the habit of stealing. 20 years Later she returned to Green Lake to find that it was deserted, there was nothing there except for two trees and a cabin she had decided to stay in. One day she woke up to find two people who used to live in Green Lake in her Cabin.
The 2 people were looking for treasure that Kate had stolen but she didn't tell them where it was. they noticed a shovel in the corner so they assumed that she had buried the treasure in the desert. so they made her walk for days in the desert to make her tell them where the treasure was but she didn't. As they were walking a Lizard bit Kates bare ankle and she died smiling.
