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.
Wow. What a beautiful night.
Xena is busy munching on something.
Other than Gabrielle, surprisingly.
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.
Whatever you desire, Princess.
Ooh. You could get in a lot
of trouble saying things
like that, y'know.
Gabrielle crosses her ankles and looks up at the sky.
So what do you think, a ship?
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.
It's really pretty out here. Iím glad we came this way.
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.
You know, I'm really glad
you decided to do that.
She looks at Xena.
Start recording all the healing
knowledge you have.
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.
We've been just reacting to life
for so long, it's a little weird to be
planning for the future, isn't it?
I mean, we always help
people. But it's usually....
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.
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.
Isn't this where some messenger
out of your past usually falls out
of a tree on top of us?
We're not under any trees.
Gabrielle settles down next to Xena, and rests her head on Xena's shoulder.
Maybe someday we can
even start a school.
Xena looks skeptical.
Hey, we have to
Xena kisses Gabrielle.
Some other time. I have
other ideas for right now.
Gabrielle laughs, and we -
