** Forgive me, Ray, if I go a little before that **.

YOUNG JACK:

((Wakes up with the sun just peeking over the horizon. Looks down at the camp, and is surprised not to see any smoke.))

Huh? Well whadya make of that? Surely he's cookin' breakfast by now?

((reaches down and pets one of the SHEPHERD DOGs who is keeping an alert gaze on the flock as her companion sleeps nearby.))

Nothing too eventful, huh?

((Gets out his canteen, poors water in a metal cup for the dogs then walks over to the LOW STARTLE POINT HORSE, tethered to a nearby tree.))

Well, darlin'. Looks like we need to head back to camp, give you some room to run around a bit.

((Rides down into camp, leaving the dogs behind to watch the sheep for a while.))

Ennis, you awake?! Ennis!

((Listens to the snores coming from the tent.))

%% God, even his snores are cute. %%

Come on, Ennis. Gotta get up and cook us somethin' to eat. I don't care what at this point.

((goes over to where the food is stored and looks into it hesitantly.))

I'd do it myself, but not much of a cook. My ma threw me out of the kitchen for scorchin' her pans. Pa gave me a real beatin' for that one... I mean, I suppose I could put something in here on the fire until it turns black and crunchy, but I reckon neither one of us'll like it.

((Turns over and wakes up.. It's morning and he wipes the sleep out of his eyes))


%% Oh no. I overslep'.  Shee-it, now I hear Jack comin' back.  I can't go out there lookin' like this.  I need ta freshin' ma breath a bit.%%


((Blows breath into hand and grimaces))


%% He's callin' me, I better git.%%


Hey bud, sorry about breakfast, guess I overslep'.  I'll git the coffee goin' and get right on breakfast. I have sausage..you like sausage?  Uh, I don't mean like, I mean eat, I, uh, how about bacon?


(( blushed beet red and hurries to make coffee))

YOUNG JACK:

((finishes tethering up LOW STARTLE POINT HORSE, but leaves her room to move around. He pats her neck and moves back over.))

Nothin' wrong with a good sausage, Ennis. We can have sausage if you want. ((grins, but stifles a yawn)).

I think I can make coffee, though. I mean, whoever heard of a man who doesn't drink coffee? That way, you can work on the food.

%% Did he just say "who do you do"? .... How ? .... poetic? %%

Umm, well mostly stay at home work for my Pa at his ranch. He's got some pretty ancient ideas about how to run it. Course, he doesn't want to hear any of mine, but I'm saving up. Gonna get a place of my own.

((coughs a little))

What about you? You do anything during the winter? You seem skilled at a lot of things. You could probably do anything that needed doin' at a ranch.
