“This Kurt fella..he love you?”  Ennis asked his child. 



Thank you, Marie, for describing this scene so beautifully. Wasn´t that one of the first times in Ennis´  life that he ever spoke about love? How difficult must it have been for him. That shows us how important it was to him to ask this question. Shows us that he did indeed make steps towards opening up. I, however, am convinced that at this time he is already fully aware of Jack´s love for him and maybe even of his love for Jack.

I admire your courage to write about an important scene like this one.

Thanks, Dagi!  You're right, it took guts to write about this scene.  But something Gary said gave me the courage to do it, which is why I dedicated the story to him.  Strange, I can't remember what he wrote that gave me the idea for this tale.  I'll have to go re-read his post.  Anyway, you're right about Ennis finally being able to talk about love by then.  And he began to understand it, which is a beautiful thing to see!

Sorry Toycoon, but this goes Way over the 3 paragraph limit.  I'll be more careful from now on!  :laugh:

The night was rather warm and the road was well lit.  Ennis and Jack were returning to camp after agreeing to dine in town.  They were too tired to cook after a day of hiking, boating, riding and loving.  The meal at “The Fat Lady” was very tasty, and very filling. 

40 feet along the well paved road Ennis saw a silent, eerie looking structure.  Jack drove along in silence, obviously full, and seemingly oblivious to the small complex that Ennis noticed from far away.

“Hey Bud, look at that over there!  What do you make of it?”  Ennis said as he pointed to the small structure that they were just about to pass.

“Oh that?”  Jack answered, never diverting his attention from the road.  “What does it look like, friend? “  Ennis looked closer and noticed an elaborate arched entryway, and in the distance, a rotting ferris wheel, a rollercoaster seemingly frozen in its tracks.

“Oh, I see it now!”  Ennis observed.  “It looks like an abandoned carnival.  I’ve never noticed it before.”

“That’s because it wasn’t there before, bonehead!”  Jack laughed as he slowed the truck. 

“How do you know how long that thing has been there?”  Ennis asked incredulous as he glanced over at Jack.

“Never mind!”  Jack answered with a wave of the hand.  He parked the truck next to the entrance and pulled at his seatbelt.

“C’mon, En, let’s go investigate!”  Jack, excited now.  “I’ve loved these things since I was a kid, but I was never able to go very often.”

Ennis said nothing, but sighed and exited the truck.  The abandoned carnival was obviously left by the owners only recently.  The smell of popcorn and cotton candy, along with the scent of burned grease, obviously used to fry the pronto puffs, still lingered in the air.  Jack moved toward the entrance, but Ennis grabbed his forearm.

“Hold on, Jack!  I don’t think we should just go in.  That would be trespassing!  And what if some people are squatting there?  I don’t want no trouble!”  Jack pulled free of Ennis’ grasp and walked through the rusty arches of the entrance.

“This is the first time I ever walked into a carnival free of charge!”  Jack enthused as he ran ahead.  Ennis shook his head and followed Jack inside.  Something about the place gave him the creeps.  It looked like one of those haunted, run-down amusement parks straight out of “Scooby Doo!”

“Hang on a minute, Bud!”  Ennis shouted as he ran to catch up.  But Jack was running around like a small child set free for the first time.  Jack slowed when he came upon a merry-go-round, a beautiful thing, in fairly good condition. He climbed aboard a fancy red horse and beckoned for Ennis to follow him.  Ennis, against his better instincts, climbed aboard the same horse, his chest facing Jack’s broad back.  Jack began to move as though he were riding a mare.  He ground his hips backward, moved against Ennis’ crotch.  Ennis couldn’t believe it!  He responded by grinding forward, and grabbed Jack’s hips to go along for the ride.  When it became too much, Ennis unzipped his fly and tugged at Jack’s belt.  He wondered what would happen when they entered the tunnel of love…

I love amusement parks, too. My hubby does not! He is a tremedous chicken! Hates roller coasters, spinning rides or any heights. I don't know how I hooked up with this dude. I can't get enough of a big drop or a fast loop!

Oops, I did it again!  I don't know why I'm writing about carnivals and amusement parks today.   :laugh:

Jack didn’t particularly mind school carnival nights, and when Lureen asked him to escort Bobby, he didn’t hesitate.  Jack fetched his blue parka and Bobby’s purple one, and off they went to the school for a night of fun.  Or so they hoped.

About an hour in, Jack began to feel the cold.  He pulled out a flask of whiskey and downed a few nips while Bobby stood over by the cotton candy machine talking to a few friends.  Jack looked around the carnival for something interesting to do before collecting Bobby to head home.

A fortune teller’s tent stood tall and lonely among the other fancy carnival booths.  Jack decided to go in, even though the tent looked mostly abandoned.  He produced a series of tickets bought at the ticket booth and pulled off 3.  He slid into the tent and found himself seated in front of a shockingly beautiful woman.  Jack studied the woman, and wondered, "whose mom are you?"  He never noticed her at any of the parent meetings.  She was not dressed as one would expect, but wore a pair of blue jeans and a tee shirt.  Jack shrugged and handed the woman the 3 tickets.

“Thank you, sir!” The young woman began as she accepted and placed the tickets into a large empty jar.  “What would you like to know?"

“Well..”  Jack began.  “I don’t have any specific questions.  I just want to know what the near future holds for me.”  The young woman tilted her head backwards and closed her eyes.  She remained that way for awhile as she grabbed hold of Jack’s hands.

“I see a very happy future for you.  Very pleasant days ahead.  You will be reunited with someone from your past, and will enjoy a happy life with that person.  Your life will be one of great joy.”  The lady then dropped Jack’s hand and looked him straight in the eyes. 

“If you want another reading, I’ll need 3 more tickets!”  Jack thought about handing her 3 tickets, but decided he had heard enough.  He never believed in this crap anyway, just needed something to pass the time.

“No thanks, ma’am!”  Jack started as he rose from the ground.  “You told me all I need to know and I thank you.”  The young woman nodded and sat very still as she watched Jack exit the tent.  He pondered the fortune teller’s words as he searched for Bobby, even though he wasn’t a believer.  He found Bobby over with a few friends buying popcorn.  Jack thought about the postcard Ennis sent telling him about the divorce being final.  He hated to admit it, but the fortune teller’s prediction gave him the courage he needed to drive down to Riverton and claim his happiness.  Jack took Bobby’s hand and headed for the car.

Thanks, Toycoon!  I know what you mean about amusement parks.  I'm with your husband, though!  I can't stomach the roller costers, or those spinning rides.  But the spook house?  Now that is a different matter, entirely.  I just love the spooky rides at Santa Cruz Beach/Boardwalk!  At Disneyland you can find me in The Haunted Mansion!  I'm an amusement park fiend!
