Young Guns2 & Young Wolf
Billy and the gang run to 2 girls who are much more than they appear.. And what does this girl know about the Red Sands REZ?
Chap.1: Meeting a Wolf
Its at the Apache barrel ground after the fight. A young girl riding a black horse road up to the guys and fell off her horse. It was obvious that she was paying attention when the horse got spooked by the the group then desided to run. The horse ran back the way it came. When the girl sat up, Dave got off his horse and went to help her. When he got close to her she backed up. "Hey its alright I wanna help ya." He said calmly. He seemed more than a little too eager to help. However, the girl smiled at him anyway, but before he could help a howl rang throw the air. Then form behind the same rocks another girl came on horse back. Only she was charging. The warmblood she was riding ran off the colossal rocks like it was in a flat meadow. Dave turned around to help the girl thinking her pal would stop and watch. As usual Dave was wrong. The horse ran towards them and barely miss them. The rider however didn't. As soon as the horse was a few feet form them she lept off attacking Dave. As the two stopped rolling on the ground and stood to face each other, the careless young girl shouted to her freind "Chels No!" Her call fell on deaf ears. Her friend stood straight a head and growled menacingly at Dave. Not one of the boys moved. They could not take their eyes away from the sence. It was unbelievable this young woman came from out of no where and was growling at Dave.
"Chels stop it he was trying to help me!" The girl shouted as she ran towards her friend. As she got to her friend she grabbed her arm and held it tight. "He was trying to help me. I fell off Cinder because I wasn't watching where I was going. Cinder reared up when we got to close. I fall and he came to help me. That's all." She said pleading with her friend. She looked to Dave for assistance. He caught it. "Yea that was my only intention, miss. I meant her no harm." He said raising his arms in defeat.
She girl stopped growling and took a step forward. "Forgive me, I am not fond of strangers. Especially men." She said with a sigh raising her hand for a hand shake. "Yea I got that." Dave said lightly shaking her hand. The girl let out a shrike as she turned back to face her friend. In an instent she crouched down in pain, holding her back. "Chels are you ok?" Her friend rushed to her side. "I'm alright just pulled a muscle." She said dryly getting up. "Hou, hou ,houuu!" She howled. Looking to the rocks. "Iyi!" shouted back. Then a young Apache man came running to them. "Wolf Chels! Spirit and Cinder come back." He said in poor English. She nodded and howled again. The warmblood came trotting back over to her. In her haist when she tried to jump on a sharp pain went through her back and she fell to the earth. "Chels!" The man and young girl yelled in union rushing to her aid. As they helped her on to the horse and girl spoke. "A pulled muscle in her back." She said bluntly to him. The young Apache nodded. "Get her to Jane's. I get Cinder." He said running back to the rocks then returning with the black horse. "Thank you." The girl said as he helped her on. The man nodded and looked to Chels. She smiled at him and reached out her hand to ruffle fine his hair. He smiled back and fixed his hair. "I'll pay my respects to the dead later." She said. Then he patted her leg, eyed the boys and ran off.
"Come we need to get to Jane's before night." She said turning to her friend and heading off. "I'm sorry for the trouble." She said waving her hand to the boys. All without even turning her head. "Wait!" Said the youngest of the boys riding up to her. She stopped and turned her horse to face him. "I wanted to thank you, for the bread you gave me. A few weeks ago." She gave a nod and said "Your welcome." She was about to turn when the boy spoke again. " Why don't we go together. We're going to White Oaks." He said a bit shaky. "I don't travel with people I don't know." She stated bluntly. "I'm The Prince of Pennsylvania." He said a bit cocky with a boyish smirk. The girl obviously knew he was joking so she smiled. "Well Mister Prince, it's a nice offer but we already lied to Sheriff Garrett about which way we heard you guys were going. Traveling with Billy The Kid and his gang would just make the lie all the worse." She said passing him and riding straight up to Billy. "Right Mister Billy?" She said looking Billy straight in the eye. Billy smiled. She had some pluck, he'd give her that. "Sounds about right to me." He said back to her. She just raised an eyebrow at him and turned around and started to trot a way. "Chels wait! How did you notice it was him?" Her friend yelled riding up to her. She didn't answer just stopped and turned herself to see the boys. She noticed Dave had gotten back on his horse. "My names Chelsea Wolf! Harry up boys or you'll get left behind!" She yelled to the boys.
"Wow she is one piece a work isn't she?" Said Henry, the farmer. Chavez smiled he liked this young girl. It was obvious she relied on her instincts and she had a great deal of respect towards Native American Culture. Doc smiled and nodded at Henry question anf puzzled look. "Alright Gang you heard the lady lets skin-out. "Billy said adding his unique laugh. As the boys all road up to Chelsea, her friend turned back to them and said "Oh my names Aryn." She said happily. "Nice to meet you." Doc replied. My name is Josiah Gordon 'Doc' Scurlock or Doc for short. And this is William H. Bonney, Billy or 'Billy The Kid'. Arkansa Dave Rudabaugh Las Vegas, Dave. Hendry William French. Tom O'Folliad or the Prince of Pennsylvania," he added with a laugh. "And Jose Chavez y Chavez or Chavez." He said introducing the boys who gave a court nod at thier names.
As the group formed the leader wasn't looking as fit. "Chels are you ok?" Aryn asked. No answer. Chelsea had her head down and her long brown-reddish-golden hair was covering her face. Aryn spoke more clearly. "Chels are you alright?" Still no answer from her friend. Aryn guessed that she was tired so she didn't want to move or say anything. The girl got like that sometimes. After riding a little farther Chelsea's horse stopped. Like a domino effect everyone stopped as well. "Chels what's.." Before Aryn could finish her sentence Chelsea fell off her horse. As Aryn tried to get down, the panic made her clumsy, Chavez didn't have any problem. He ran and pick up Chelsea looking at her over to see what was wrong. As he felt down her back, there was a moan of pain. He rubbed her back in the spot and she made more painful moans. When Aryn finally got to them, she asked "What happened?"
Chavez didn't look up. "Strained back. Probably when she attacked Dave then collapse from what I don't know." He answered. "Oh no. Well Chels has been stressed. What do we do?" Aryn asked. "Nothing it must heal on its own, but she must not move around. She'll wake up after she's rested." Doc stated giving back on to his horse. "But how will she ride then?" Aryn asked again still showing signs of panicking. " She must be carried." Chavez said picking her up bridal style. "But Spirit won't let her ride another horse, let alone in the arms of a stranger." She stated. "Then I'll ride him." Chavez said putting her on the back of her saddle. "No, he won't let anyone else ride him." Aryn said trying to help explain the seriousness of the situation. "Well Spirit will get have to go with it if he's wants his master alright again." Chavez said tying the rains of his horse to a rope and attaching the rope to Chelsea's saddle. "Ok then but if you get killed its not my fault." Aryn said getting back on to her horse. Chavez went face to face with Spirit, as the stallion just stood there. "Look if you want your master to be safe let me ride you. Please Spirit." Chavez said truthfully. The stallion stood there for a moment then turned and walked forward showing its back to him. Chavez smiled and got on. While grabbing Chelsea and setting her on his lap. "Lets go." Chavez said a bit coldly. So they started up again. "Wow it took me weeks for the horse to even let me touch it. Lead alone ride. You must have something in common with Chels." Aryn said admiring him. Chavez just looked at the sleeping girl in his arms. There was something about her that interested him.
By the time they reached White Oaks it would be only a few more hours until night. Jane was happy to Billy and even more so to see Chelsea. Especially that Chavez was carrying her. As everyone piled in to the solon, Jane had Chavez take Chelsea to an extra spare room. It was at the top of the house. Nothing much but it was just right for someone who was ill. A queen size bed, a few chairs, a table, a bed side table with a lamp and a small dresser with a vanity on the side. While everyone was down stairs talking; Aryn, Jane and Chavez helped Chelsea. While Aryn explained to Jane what happened, Chavez brought in all of Chelsea's stuff in her new room. Once Aryn and Jane had organized all of Chelsea's things, they headed down stairs to go mingle with the others. Leaving Chavez to tend to Chelsea. Chavez was puzzled by this girl. How did a white girl come to tame a stallion, be excepted by the Apache, travel with no men or protection, and get the name Wolf. He remembered the young Apache man called her Wolf Chels. She howled and growled but that was the only way he could see her getting that name. However she did hold the same beauty as the creature. She is a Wolf. He thought. He smiled to himself, he hadn't felt this way for along time. It was so long since he was comfortable and interested in a woman. He wanted to know more about her.
Chap.2: Chelsea Awakes to Chavez Can't wait to read your guys' veiws on the redone first chapter.. Then will post 2nd.
Chap.2: Chelsea Awakes to Chavez
It was early in the night, most of the town was heading to bed. Such as the pure citizens of White Oaks, always did. At Jane's it was the oppisite senrario. Billy was rehashing stories, making them be more out going than a bronco at a rodio. The young prince of penn. couldn't get enough of these tellings. Jane however had known Billy but she played along. It was nice to see him again. He was like fresh air still child like but, with a dangerous man of adventures attitude. Every now and then she would vier over to Doc and Aryn's card game. Though it wasn't much of a game, with Aryn winning and out smarting Doc. Doc as a gentleman was polite and funny, his man ego however was taking quite a beating. It was positively grand to see Doc wanting to crwal out of his skin.
Henery too enjoyed watching Doc and talking to Aryn. He found her a lot like his own wife, but alot like Doc in the way she thought. It was nice to hear such a woman again. As Doc scqirmed Henery and Jane shared a look. Jane's glint was all that needed to be said. He had lost another game. As they tried to repress the giggles and fits of laughter approching, when Doc asked how she knew such knowlege of these "games". They were gambling and Aryn was a card shark without even knowing. True she had played with an old man often a few years ago but that was a life time ago.
Doc went on unsatisfied with the answer. Henery just smypathetic smile and started small talk. It was welcomed with a soft smile. Dave was intrested in small talk and couldn't get an opening to talk to her in anyway. He wasn't to heart broken since he got his "boonda" right quick form one of Jane's girls or two. All was quite calm yet to all it felt strangely normal. The gang was relaxed and doing well at their own thing. Though every so often Aryn and Jane would look to the stairs. Chavez or Chels hadn't come down. They knew better than most that she needed rest, for what she had just endured. Jane assurred her that Chavez was safe, if Spirit found him safe then she could be no safer. Aryn still worried, so Jane would go to check every so often.
Jane had come and gone at least 4 times, 2 with Aryn in toe by Chavez's count. They couldn't wait for her to wake. Not that she wasn't going to, or that he was going to do anything like eat her. He had eaten with the others at dinner. Aryn and the girls remained quit as the wind about their lives. None of the boys thought it was right, 2 women unprotected travelling. With Jane on their side none of the men could voice more than some concern. He smiled softly. To be so over protective ment it should be something of value to protect. Aryn had given him leave to go through any thing in of Chel's bags to find anything to help her. It would of worried him why she had been asleep so long, but Jane explained that she had experienced a sort of trama over the last year. It was one that took more of her soul than anything else. Now that was just another rattle for the snake of questions he had.
She seemed strong.
