110 years ago, Greenlake was actually a lakeside town, rather then a barren wastland. There was only one school, a one room schoolhouse, which was owned by Miss Katherine Barlow.
In Greenlake, there was a man called Sam who sold onions on the street. One day, when Katherine was talking to him, she mentionedthat the roof leaked. "I can fix that" he said. She enjoyed his company, and kept finding more things for him to fix.
After awhile, Katherine ran out of things in need of fixing. She couldn't bear being alone for long. One riany evening she ran outside and into Sam's arms. "Oh Sam, my heart is breaking!" she cried. "I can fix that' he replied.
Someone must have seen Katherine and Sam kiss though, and it was illegal for a "negro" man to kiss a white woman. Soon the villagers had set the schoolhouse on fire.
Katherine hurried to the lake side. "We've got to hurry!" she told Sam. They got into his boat, but they weren't fast enough. Their boat was tipped over, Sam was shot in the water, and Katherine was rescued against her will.
Not a drop of rain fell on the town since that night, and Greenlake became a desolate wasteland. As for Katherine, she became the most feared outlaw in Texas, kissing her victims after murdering them, known to all as Kissin Kate Barlow.
