May 5

The songs of the birds woke him...which was ok with him, because if he had to be torn out of a dream that had Jack in it, at least he could wake hearing the same sounds he had heard with Jack when they were in the mountains.

He sighed deep, thanking God that he remembered this one...a soft blending of today and yesterday.....

“Hey! How ya doing, boy! “

Chief had run ahead of Ennis and just about tackled Jack as he waited by the fire.

“What’s his name?” Jack was rubbing Chief’s coat as the dog wagged his tail and turned around and around, wanting to stay and get petted but wanting to be with his master at the same time...master won, and he ran back to escort Ennis down the slight incline to the campsite.

“Chief...seems to like you ok.”

“Where’d you get him?”

With Ennis safely in his sight again, Chief ran over and leaned against Jack as he bent over to ruffle his fur and scratch his head...Ennis dropped his gear and walked over to Jack, arms around him in a hug dreamed of for fourteen weeks, five days, sixteen hours.

“Found him sittin by the side a the road, damn dog jumped right into my truck...acted like he’d been waitin for me to show up...been almost two years...who cares, c’mere...”

The first kiss...arms around each other like steel...breath long and labored...loud...through nostrils...unable to give up each other’s mouths just to make it easier to breathe...

On and on...the simple act of touching, holding, seeing, making all the months apart fade to nothing...for the moment.

“Fuck...been too long...”

After.......lying in each other’s arms, alive for the first time in how long...taking everything in...seeing Jack so close up, feeling his skin, smelling his sweat and his come, wanting to see feel smell everything all the time forever...

No one could read his thoughts...

And talking...

“Why’d you name him Chief?”

Ennis turned in his lover’s arms so that his face was pressed deep between Jack’s shoulder and neck.

“Don’t you remember? That’s what you called that dog on Brokeback...that pup you carried up in your coat...what, you thought I didn’t see that? Damn dog followed you around like he could nurse off your tit.”

“Just a dog...didn’t think you’d remember his name.”

Ennis rolled on his back and fumbled around for the cigarettes, lit one and passed it to Jack, lit another and drew deep, as Jack moved his hand across Ennis’s bare stomach...felt the slight twitch of the muscles there, rubbing slowly, hypnotically...

Ennis felt the touch that made his eyes close

narrowing his focus to that alone

the touch of that rough hand

the touch that knew him so well

the touch that he craved and would miss through all the long months to come

the touch that made him feel whole, so that nothing outside could intrude

so long as they were here...

“Prob’ly remember more’n you think I do…”

“What else you remember?”

The song birds............

What else did he remember?

The touch like none other, the touch that can't be replaced, only missed, and missed, and missed...
Thank you, I'm glad that Chief came to this point

thank you, you always know instinctively what I'm writing about...

I'm so desperate for canon that I have my "todays" Ennis look back in dreams to relive their old days, so that I may also...

thanks, tizi. I wish that, too.

It's hard for me to believe that they spent the time together, each looking so forward to it, and yet never spoke of their feelings...I know AP wrote it that way to give more impact to the story, but damn!

Hands that touch us and make us feel whole just by a slight grace along an arm or on our shoulder those feelings we get when the human being that holds us close and encircles us with love are special and well, we do remember those little things of our encounters with the our soul mates and they keep coming back over and over again. It is a wonderful feeling being in those memories but also it hurts and betrays us into thinking those feelings are gone when that part of us is not with us anymore. Joe
