EXT. WOODS - EVENING
Common thugs. They're
Chuckling, Xena wraps her arm around Gabrielle’s shoulder as they continue down the road.
EXT. CAMP - NIGHT
Xena and Gabrielle have set
up camp for the night. The fire is banked and their bedroll is spread
over the soft grass. Gabrielle is sitting on the furs, the straps of
her top hanging off of her shoulders. Xena kneels behind her, kneading
Gabrielle's shoulders with firm hands.
Unseen by Xena,
Gabrielle’s eyes twinkle.
Skills, huh? Talk. Talk.
Xena pinches Gabrielle on the bottom hard enough cause her to shoot to her feet. Then, in a lightning move, Xena scoops her into her arms and settles them both on their furs.
Do I have to demonstrate
She playfully tugs on Xena’s hair, biting her lip to keep a smile off her face.
That’s it. No kissing for
Xena is trying to kiss Gabrielle, who playfully evades her lips.
C’mon Gabrielle. You know
you want to.
Both women burst out
laughing but stop instantly when they hear a noise in the trees off to
their left. They look at one another. Xena nods. Gabrielle
deliberately pulls the fur cover over her reclining form, and Xena slips
silently into the woods.
Gasping, the figure
stumbles backward, alerting the others, who turn and draw their own
weapons: rough made spears, a stone axe and a sling. They don’t have a
metal weapon between them.
Xena rolls her eyes.
Six weapons fall immediately to the ground. Satisfied, Gabrielle lowers her sais.
All fight gone from them, the six figures obediently shuffle closer to the fire. The light displays the faces of six grimy, weary, and very young women. Gabrielle looks over their clothing, then back up to their faces. Her eyes widen.
