Here's mine for today

A Very Dark Night

May 1981

The moon glowed brightly in the inky darkness of the night sky.  The light from the moon was shining through the plastic window of the tent.   Jack was sleeping soundly, his breath soft and even, a sweet look if contentment momentarily on his face.  Ennis was wide awake. 

He got up and walked towards the lake.  The North Star was twinkling in the sky. 

“Looks like Jack was all wrong about that snow” Ennis said to himself.

Ennis walked slowly back into the tent.  He went onto his knees and looked at Jack.

“Sometimes I miss you so much I can’t stand it at all”  he whispered to himself.

“Whaddya say?” Jack mumbled, stirring from his sleep.

“Nothin”

“Ya said somethin” Jack said, still half asleep.

“Nothin” Ennis replied, but he lied down and put him arm around Jack and tangled his legs with his own.  Ennis lay there thinking that being here like this made the times away so much harder.

'Maybe I oughta just stay away, then I won’t be missing so much', a terrible thought that flashed through his mind.

But for now, he pulled Jack tighter, and his hand began traveling…….all over. 
Ennis put off thinking for another day.

M

Yeah, I get the words early in the morning and write it in RL during the day (no internet) and post first thing when I come home.  Guess we think alike.  Or at least have Ennis stuck in our minds (he is there in mine) :)

    Jack and Ennis lay on the bedroll,  sweating profusely, from the aftermath of their, heated and boisterous sex.  Jack smiled up into the inkydarkness, and thought of  the many
times they had been this way.  How often over the years they had lain together, and in how many
different places.  Don't you ever wonder, he pondered, how, we seem to find just the right
way, just the right position, to twist our legs around each other. 
     "Well," Ennis replies," what , ya think we're sposed to do with em.?"
     "I can't say, but it seem like it would take more planning,,we just seem to do it.  "Heh,
"Jack, you are plum crazy.  You know that, don't ya?  Who else could fuck, the livin daylights
outa somebody, and be thinkin about their legs?"  "Jack chuckles, and rolls over onto his side
looking into his lover eyes."  "Well, I guess I should be just thinking about the stars and shooting stars then."  "Well cowboy, I definately got my work done then.  That last time, you pushed my spleen out the other end."  "I saw plenty a stars that time.."

Putting off thinking about the unthinkable.  Damn.  Now I won't be able to stop thinking about it, Marl.
