%%Christ, Ennis.  I thought you'd never get around to finishing me off.   I must say, though - it was certainly worth the wait.%%

((Looks at Jack and back down to his beer, not really believing what he just heard.))

%% Oh dear. Lightnin storm?? 42 sheep. Damn, hope he don't find out I'm damn near terrified of thunder storms.  Sheep smell?  I think I'm gonna be sick.%%


Ennis:  "I ain't 'fraid of no lightnin'.  We jes need to be careful, is all. Gotta git the count right for Aguirre I guess.


%%What the hell am I babbling about?  Why is this happenin'? I want him..GASP..no I didn't mean that. I don't know what I mean.  I want Alma.  That's right.  you want Alma..you want Alma...%%

  • I lost myself to him.
YOUNG JACK:

((rolls his eyes at the mention of Aguirre.))

Don't even get me started on Aguirre. That man finds a way to get on my nerves every time I see 'im. He got on my ass about that storm, ya know.
He wanted me to work some native american Mumbo Jumbo and make the storms go away, but I told 'im my Ma raised me right.


((picks up the bottle of beer and takes a swig, places it back down again.))

%% Who is this guy Ennis anyway? %%

((Getting real restless in his seat. Trying to focus on the bottle with quick glances to Jack))

%% Only 100 times you dumbass.. what is wrong with me?%%

YOUNG JACK:

((Chews on his lower lip, worriedly, self consciously.))

YOUNG JACK:

%% Uh oh. Something sensitive. I can be such an a**hole sometimes. %%

((looks straight ahead and thinks for a moment then turns back to Ennis))

You don't have to answer that if you don't want to.

((Shifts a bit. Looking at Jack and wondering why he cares))


No, 's ok. They was drivin' down the highway and  ran off a cliff.  Sis and brother tried to look after me, but wasn't easy.  The bank took the ranch and here I am.



%%Never tol' anyone that story, this boy likes to hear me talk, wonder why that is.%%



(( Puts his head down, lights another smoke and tries to figure out what this summer will hold for him))

YOUNG JACK:

((visibly relieved, but still sorrowful))

Sorry to hear 'bout your loss. It can make things tough. I live up in Lightnin' Flat. My pa has a ranch up there. I help him up there, or at least I try to. That man cannot be pleased for anythin'. My Ma's nice though. I think you'd like her.

%% Not that I know anything about you yet. Not sure where that came from. %%

About the only thing I did right was the Rodeo. I'm pretty good at it too. ((proud grin))

You ever get out and ride the bulls?

%% Um, that came out wrong. %%
