TEASER

 

FADE IN:

 

EXT. DEEP FOREST CAMPSITE - NIGHT

 

It is a clear and starry night. On a hilltop stands a forest, and in the middle of the forest on the top of the hill is a tiny clearing.

 

In the center of the clearing is a fire, neatly made, with a ring of rocks around it to keep it from burning down the surrounding trees.

 

On one side of the fire, a pile of furs is lying, looking very thick and comfy, and on top of the furs lie Xena and Gabrielle.

 

GABRIELLE

Wow. What a beautiful night.

 

Xena is busy munching on something.

 

Other than Gabrielle, surprisingly.

 

XENA

Yeah, and if you make me another

one of those sweet sandwiches,

it'll be even more beautiful.

 

Gabrielle reaches to one side and picks up a small square confection, with something squishy in the middle. She hands it over.

 

GABRIELLE

(indulgently)

Whatever you desire, Princess.

 

XENA

Ooh. You could get in a lot

of trouble saying things

like that, y'know.

 

 

GABRIELLE

(smirking)

I know.

 

Gabrielle crosses her ankles and looks up at the sky.

 

GABRIELLE

(contíd)

So what do you think, a ship?

 

XENA

(looking)

Ox cart.

 

Gabrielle gives Xena a loving, but long suffering look. Xena doesn't turn her head, but she grins as though she sees Gabrielle anyway. 

 

Gabrielle shakes her head.

 

GABRIELLE

It's really pretty out here. Iím glad we came this way.

 

XENA

(nodding)

Me too. I think I can find a lot

of those rare herbs I was telling

you about around here.

 

Gabrielle reaches over and absentmindedly plays with Xena's hair. Xena gives her a 'look' but does not comment.

 

GABRIELLE

You know, I'm really glad

you decided to do that.

 

She looks at Xena.

 

GABRIELLE

(contíd)

Start recording all the healing

knowledge you have.

 

XENA

(shrugging)

Be nice to have something for people

to remember me by besides kicking

heads in. Maybe if we run into any

sharp kids like you want to teach,

I can leave them notes.

 

 

Gabrielle rolls over, and sits up. She removes a pan from the fire, taking several more of the square confections from it, and setting them to cool on a rock near the furs.

 

GABRIELLE

We've been just reacting to life

for so long, it's a little weird to be

planning for the future, isn't it?

 

XENA

Very.

 

GABRIELLE

I mean, we always help

people.  But it's usually....

 

XENA

Right then.

 

GABRIELLE

Yeah. I like the idea of giving them

something to help in their future...

like teaching them to read.

 

Xena leans over and swipes another treat. She lies back down.

 

XENA

(satisfied)

I like that idea too. It's time we

put our past behind us. Make

something new going forward.

 

They both fall silent. The crickets get louder. The stars twinkle overhead.

 

GABRIELLE

(clearing throat)

Isn't this where some messenger

out of your past usually falls out

of a tree on top of us?

 

 

XENA

(chuckling)

We're not under any trees.

 

Gabrielle settles down next to Xena, and rests her head on Xena's shoulder.

 

GABRIELLE

Maybe someday we can

even start a school.

 

Xena looks skeptical.

 

XENA

Well....

 

 

GABRIELLE

Hey, we have to

retire sometime.

 

Xena kisses Gabrielle.

 

XENA

Some other time. I have

other ideas for right now.

 

Gabrielle laughs, and we -

 

FADE OUT.
