    Movin' On Up

    Jay stepped inside and had a look around. He noticed the missing furniture and instantly suggested. "I can build you some chairs or a bench, whichever you prefer." Then he fiddled around with his hat in hands while he looked upwards towards the other rooms. "So..are you adopting Weedy or is he just staying with you?" It was better if the whole thing was official and the boy had a permanent secure home. "If you want, I'll help you with some tasks...you know...things that I might be able to teach him or talk to him about since he's got no real pa. Not that I'm any good at it but I can try." He took the creaky steps upwards and saw the rooms. There was no inside bathroom like in some rich homes. "I like it. It's quaint. Good fit for the two of you." He entered the bedroom and followed his instinct to pull her closer again and kiss her. This time with more passion. Jay gently sucked on her lips and caressed them with his.

    That kiss was so much needed. The longing for closeness to her, the attraction had been there from the moment she took him in. But he had never even dared to hope that there could be more. Suddenly there was and it was sealed with a kiss despite his confession. Addy chose not to know his whole story but at least he had offered itvand was being truthful with her. He watched her cheeks become pink after their lips parted and could still feel them lingering on his. "Beautiful." He meant the kiss but it could be taken as an attribute of the home. "We're not proper. No." Would they ever be? "I could come and visit...and since when do you care about peoples opinions. But it's better not to rile them up." He took her hand. "Show me the inside."

    Addy had become very dear to him. So had Weedy. He could imagine them being his family which was the closest he had ever gotten to it. So thevslowly passing moments after his confession were gruesome because he was very worried about her reaction. This could be the end of them...or worse. She could call the sheriff. But none of that happened. Instead she kissed him and made him gasp. It wasn't a shy kiss on the cheek either but a clear statement that he was incredibly happy about. So he joined in the kiss, lips crashing against lips, soft sucking and caressing the softness. His hand was behind her neck pulling her closer until their bodies touched.

    Jay was willing to be open and honest with her now. She deserved to know the truth about him. He wasn't sure how she'd react to the whole truth but if she wanted it, he'd tell her. "I will tell you whatever you want to know but can you promise me not to tell anyone?" Even that was too much to ask really. "That didn't need it..." He repeated her words and wondered what she meant by it. "I don't think so. I've never shot anyone on cold blood. I've only defended myself when I was being shot at but I have killed people." Gosh, it was hard to face that fact. He didn't even want to look at Addy now. "Ask me anything. Best do it now. I think I owe you this and then you can consider whether you still want me in your life."

    That she wouldn't instantly shoot him wasn't a given, so he was actual thankful for the promise. "Good because you might want to after I tell you." Jay had been going over this a million times in his head but now that he was actually going through with it, he still got very nervous. He had to take a few calming breaths before he said. "I've done things in my past that I'm not proud of." How could he word it to still be considered a good person? Was there a way? "I've even commited crimes. For a while I've wanted to walk away from it but I never could until I got shot. It was my way of escaping my previous life. I deeply regret my past but it is what it is and I can only do better now." He didn't even dare to look at her now. There was too much shame and guilt.

    It was nice to spend a few moments alone with her again. There had been things that had not been said and Jay knew at some stage he needed to tell her. The place she had found for herself and Weedy was beautiful. "That's better than your barn for sure." He smiled at her and nodded. "I can make him a swing and build you a rocking chair for that porch if you wish." He took her by the hand and walked up to the porch with her, then sat down on the steps. "I want to tell you why I ran away at the dance. There is something in my past that I haven't told you about. You really mean a lot to me and I would like there to be more between us. So if you want to know, I will tell you."

    It was a bit of surprise that she'd hook her arm in his. A pleasant one, though. Jay smiled at her in return as they walked alongside each other. "He'll be very happy about that but honestly, your barn and room wasn't a bad place. It's not about the rooms, it's about the love that lives inside." He said those rather poetic words and kept looking at her. Then he realized that he had been talking about her in terms of love. Now it was out and he had no intentions of taking it back. "I've missed you." He admitted while they kept walking. "I'm sorry, I left you at the dance. I even came back but you were gone."
  8. The news about her 'adopting' Weedy was unexpected and then not. The boy had been living with her for a while and they knew his mother was dead. His father most likely, too. "Wow, that's a big step. I mean it is and it isn't. He's been living with you forever but now it's official, eh? Does Weedy know?" Jay craned his neck to look towards the classroom window but he couldn't see him from out here. "I'd like to see your place. You've already found a new one? We haven't seen each other that long?" He got up and nodded. "Why don't you show me."
  9. Jay had waited for Addy to bring the boys inside and used the moment to get his bearings back. When she came back outside and sat next to him, he knew there was some need for talking. After all they hadn't seen each other since the dance which had so abruptly ended for him. He wasn't sure whether she was angry and hadn't had a chance to touch base with her because the old lady had blackmailed him into working night and day on that huge fence. He felt her hand and his and was quick to curls his fingers around hers, then he looked at her and smiled softly. @Bongo
  10. "Yeah, maybe giving you some lessons is not a bad idea, if Addy agrees." The walk back to the school allowed Jay some time to process what had just happened and how close the boys and him had been to getting shot. Maybe it was stupid what he had done but it had paid off. Now that it was all said and down, he started to feel a little shaky. When Addy brought the boys back in the classroom who seemed to be on some sort of high from the incident, he sat down on a bench outside and wrung his hands through his hair, blowing out some air. Strange what he was ready to do for a boy, who wasn't his own. He leaned his head back against the wooden outside of the building and let the sun warm his face. @Bongo
  11. The tension dissolved quickly when the robber was finally under control and had not shot any of the boys or Jay. Instead the boys hugged each other, glad that everyone was alright and at the same time extremely excited. Jay watched them with a sigh of relief but inwardly he started trembling because he knew he could have lost both of them and Weedy had become very dear to him. Not even speaking about his own life. He closed the distance and pulled the boy into a tight hug. "Weedy! I'm so glad you're okay." Then he ruffled Wyatts hair. "You, too." Of course thanks were in order to the one man, he had avoided like the plague thanks to his own history. "Thank you, you came, just in time. I don't know what would have happened otherwise." After shaking the mans hand he looked at Addy. Oh man, what if she had lost Weedy ...or him? A smile tugged on his lips as he walked over to her. "That was a close call."
  12. Why could kids not do what they were told? It was all under control until Weedy jumped back out in the street, presenting himself as a perfect target for the bank robber, whom Jay hat wounded. For a second he turned to see the kid put them both in danger but he knew he had to keep him safe. The boy was young and innocent while Jay had not always made good choices and deserved much more to be in danger than him. So he turned slighty to give him a push back behind the wagon whilst shielding him with his own body. "Stay there!" @Flip @Bongo
  13. Jay did not trust the old lady as far as he could throw her. He was pretty sure that, once the fence was completed she'd find something new to blackmail him with. It was better than running from the law, though. "Good night, Mrs. Miggins." He replied and pulled the front door close. Then he walked along the sidewalk with the odd glance back to make sure she really left, which she did. From afar he could hear the music, talk and fun, which people were having. Maybe he could still have a bit with Addy, not some one legged over eager gal. As he returned, he had a good look around to see where she was.
  14. "Mrs. Miggins." Jay repeated her name. It tasted a tad sour in his mouth and he surely wasn't overly keen on becoming buddies with the woman, who had taken a shot at him and was now black mailing him. She had to be able to read people really well because she seemed damn sure he wouldn't repay the favour with the bullet. "Well, mam. It's been a pleasure coming to an agreement with you. I will come to your place in two days time with my tools. If you'd excuse me now?" With a polite gesture he walked to the door, asking her to follow. After all she was sitting in his chair in the middle of his home. Perhaps this could really turn out as a chance to stay in Kalispell.
  15. It was incredibly stupid ofvthe bank robber to let his hostage go. It was the only leverage he had to get out of here unscathed. But as soon as they boy was gone he was a target. And maybe he had just given up? He aimed his gun at Jay, sending a jolt of adrenaline through his body, but the shot missed and Jays gun was locked and loaded. The former Outlaw did not hesitate to pull the trigger and send a bullet towards the man. Unfortunately a little low to kill him with one shot. He had never had the greatest skillset for an Outlaw.
