    • "Maybe, fer this special occasion," Addy suggested, "we can try a little'a each?  That way, we can get a taste'a everything, so next time, we know what our favorite is."  It was a plan that appealed to her, so she didn't have to decide which she wanted!   "Never turn down help," she declared, "but seems ta me yer th' one needs help brushin' them horses down."  She glanced at Weedy and Josh, considering for a moment if it was safe to let the boy go up into the loft, but then, his father could stop him, and, after all, he was a Chappel!  He'd grown up around horses, and was of hardy stock!   With them all working together, it wouldn't take too long to get the horses settled, and then they could be on the way to treats!   @MD
    • "We'll get on."  Addy was determined, and once she grabbed hold of the crude rope halter, she had control of the animal.  "Here..."  Cupping her hands, she made a step for Caroline, to give her a boost up.  "Just grab his mane."   TBC   @Wayfarer

    • Anæsthesia wasn't exactly convinced by all these homilies about falling out of trees, breaking arms, and sleeping in the mud: she smiled politely, if a little tightly. Truth to tell, she felt a little bit 'got at' - the snobby girl was getting a taste of her own medicine in the form of the inverted-snobbery of these rough frontier folk.    She suddenly blurted, rather defensively "I have learned to shoot a gun!"   "I have a 1858 model Lefaucheux double action revolver, and really am rather a good shot with it." she said proudly. Now maybe they'd stop telling her that she needed to fall out of a tree to be able to claim that her life had any meaning.    Of course, the hypocrisy was that she was quite willing to tell others what they should be doing with their lives: like learning to read.      @Bongo @MD
    • Mr McVey was chattering away as Arabella grabbed her non-packable items: two dresses, spare bonnet, basket and three large round circles made of bamboo. These were very hard to carry and to manoeuvre through the doorway.    "You and I disagree on a number of things, yet, we agree on others. Mister Reeve is certainly one to keep an eye on. And I would say, he is dangerous in another way, to the political atmosphere in Kalispell. He is an odd fellow, yet, so is Mister Pettigrew. Perhaps the goal of him running is to slit the vote? I'm not exactly confident on that assumption."   "Now don't you be mean about Mr Pettigrew, Mr McVey, he's been right nice to me: teachin' me all about how to speak proper and act like a lady." she objected. Pettigrew had taught her something else, too, something more important than those surface embellishments, something at her very core.    He hoisted the trunk that was surprising lighter than he would have expected. "As time moves on, we'll have a better idea of Pettigrew's purpose in the grand scheme of the elections this fall." He added, then, "I'm following you, Arabella."   "Hold on, I'm all tangled up!" she yelped, the three bamboo circles seemed to have minds of their own and were doing their darndest to stop her getting through the doorway. "I'm takin' these hoops with me, in case crinolines come back in!" she informed him.    Eventually she got herself through the door and down the stairs, with a shout of "I'm goin' now, I'll be back at seven!" at Caroline's door. When the two of them reached the bar, there was a ragged cheer from some of the rounders who were regulars "Don't worry, I'll be back at seven, boys!" she assured them.   "Oh damn!" one of them joked.    "You movin' in with him?!" another joshed. Arabella laughed and didn't say yes and didn't say no: well, Phin had said he didn't care if people talked!   @Flip

His Aunt Addy sure did remind him a lot more of his Pa and this lady here reminded him a little bit of his Ma. The way she was dressed and the way she talked and stuff.  Josh was more like his Pa he supposed.  His Ma was real prim and proper and had tried to show his Pa how to be the same, but every time his Pa did something like that he looked real goofy like and complained the entire time.  Josh had gotten in trouble too many times by his Ma for laughing at his Pa when he had to do that stuff!

 

Addy made him feel right at home and comfortable.  That squeeze on his shoulder was just what he needed when she had mentioned his Ma passing.  While she might have been prim and proper and maybe a bit too strict, Josh sure missed her something awful.  He was glad when they started talking about something else.

 

He didn't believe Addy when she said she wasn't smart.  She had shown him some of the very best things in all the world he supposed! Just like that one eyed cat and the way she could whistle was just something special! He swore one day he was going to be able to do the same, though right now he could do nothing but blow hot air between his lips.  Learning to whistle like her was way higher on his priority list than to learn his alphabet. 

 

"So, Master Josh... Joshua, I suppose. Do you know your alphabet yet, young man?"

 

Master Josh?! Wow that made him sound something official!  He shook his head though and finally spoke for the first time.

 

"I think my Ma tried to show me some of that stuff, but I don't really remember it.  Something about A's and apples and B's and bears..." He tilted his head with a bit confused like expression. "Is that right?" He said to the girl as he took Addy's hand for a moment only to let go quickly when the girl finally agreed to come out to see the horses and the cat.  He ran ahead and pushed open the door.  Now was a good time to try and do that whistle.

 

He pursed his lips together, formed an 'o' and blew hard as he could through his lips. "I'm callin' the cat!"  He explained to the two women.  But again, nothing but hot air between his lips.  He tried again.  Lips together, 'o' and blow!  He blew so hard his face was turning red as he stood there holding the door open for the two ladies.
