((Big, beautiful, brown bear perks up ears, hoping to catch a lilting refrain heard on occasion in these mountains.))

BEAR:

%%
Don't care for these trespassing men much, but I like the songs they sing at times%%

%%Wonder if that damn elk's gonna grab the spotlight from me; don't they know bears don't work weekends?%%

((Owl Olivia, recovering from the shock of encountering the new Broken Arsed Symphonic Orchestra under the trees, is having a nasty lyrical fit...))

 ::)

Today is our boys' big day
They want to shoot a deer.
S'time for me to get away
Because I rather fear
That bullet might get led astray
And I'm no longer here!




** Hey bear! Nice to know you! You, too, better git yer scrawny ass away from that shooting scene.
For all I know, at least one of them guys can't shoot worth a damn! **

YOUNG JACK:

((Nods and moves forward a bit, starting))

Right. Um, I think you're a little close, watch out for the recoil.

%% Damn it. We gotta get a move on. I'm gettin too hungry to stand. %%

((Using the fine directions that Ennis provided him, aims the rifle and shoots the glass bottle, shards splinterin' everywhere.))

Well whadya know?

((Turns suddenly to Ennis with a grin, realizing they're still standing very close together. Ennis's warm brown eyes that any one could melt into.))

((a little hoarsely)) Let's go see if we can find some game.

((takes a few steps away, back toward the LOW STARTLE-POINT HORSE, hesitantly, not really wanting to enlarge the gap between them))

YOUNG ENNIS:

Let's git behind this log and watch that hill over there, that looks like a place elk would go to eat.

  • I lost myself to him.
** Wow, Court, no sign of Dee? **

YOUNG JACK:

((Leaves LOW STARTLE POINT HORSE tethered to a tree, nods at Ennis.))

Alright.

((sets himself up in a standard hunting position, close to where Ennis is sitting. Very close.))

((He tries to keep focused on the field and forest before him, but keeps stealing quick glances at Ennis.))

%% Damn, its hard to concentrate with him around. %%

**Nope, no Dee yet, and Mr. Raymille wants us to get through this scene today.**

YOUNG ENNIS:

%% Why is he so close? %%

So, uh, do you want me to shoot or do you wanna try?

YOUNG JACK:

((looks hesitantly at Ennis.))

Well to be honest, I'm afraid a my dumb ass missin.

((hands the rifle over to Ennis and grins mischievously))

Asides, I kinda like the way you handle a gun. Wanna watch ya at work... I mean, so that I can do it myself... Handle a gun, I mean....

((looks away for a moment and pulls at his collar))

%% Handle a gun? Watch me at work? What the hell?! %%

((Sits uncomfortably for a few minutes, sees an elk in the distance. Takes careful aim, about to shoot.))

YOUNG ENNIS:

((Sees a giant banana tree near the elk.))

Hey Jack? What if we don't shoot the elk? We could get in a lot of trouble with Game and Fish. D'you see those bananas over there? We could eat those instead, it'll still be better than beans.

((Looks at Jack nervously.))

(( Meanwhile ...
The Assistant Director sends her Assistant over to the local library to determine if banana trees
really do grow up on snow-capped mountains, on Broken Arsed to be precise ...




Her research continues ...
