The quiet of dawn by MelonHeadGirl The quiet of dawn by MelonHeadGirl
Continued from here: [link]

I'm not fully sure what happened with the layers here - all but the furthest forward seem to have gone fuzzy, getting more so as it gets further back. Sorry!

I lost this note as well Asher, sorry! I hope what I did was alright.

James woke suddenly as Ash shuffled beside him, laying her head on his shoulder and hooking one leg through his, sending shocks through him. He thought for a moment, then smiled to himself, remembering the previous night. Running a hand through his slightly damp hair, he groaned quietly, remembering the deal the two of them had made, and decided he wouldn't mention it.

"Mornin'," He murmured as Ash woke up, blinking up at him with dazzling blue eyes blurry with sleep. She smiled at him, leaning up for a kiss, which he happily returned, trying not to get distracted by the fact her naked figure was pressing against his own. He deepened the kiss, pulling her on top of him.

The neigh of a nearby horse stopped them going for another round, and Ash sat up, straddling his hips as her hair fell in mad cascades down her chest and stomach. James twirled a few strands between his fingers as she quickly braided it.

"Don't you have some horses to clean, mister? And food to cook? There's also saddling, packing and washing to be done, if I remember rightly." Ash smirked at him, twisting to watch his reaction.

James groaned, collapsing back onto his bedroll and covering his face. "I was hoping you'd've forgotten," he explained, smiling up at her then sitting up, grabbing his pants from the pile of discarded clothes that surrounded the lovers.

Galloping hooves suddenly echoed through the campsite. "Sherrif! SHERRIF!" Ash and James looked at one another with raised eyebrows, before James crawled out of the tent wearing only his trousers, squinting at the horse and rider that came barrelling into camp. It was Sam, one of the scouts.

The young man pulled up his horse outside the Sheriff's tent, and called again. The Sheriff walked out, already fully dressed, with coffee in hand, and got into an agitated discussion with the younger man, eventually throwing his cup onto the dusty floor in anger. The younger man cowered away, but the Sheriff bore down on him.

Another horse jogged into camp - Lew on his bay mare. Ash appeared beside James, one of his shirts hanging off her like a tent. The three men outside the Sheriff's tent talked animatedly, before splitting apart and spreading the message that they should be ready to move within the half-hour.

"Whaddya reckon's happened?" Ash asked, disappearing back into the tent and tossing James his shirt while she got changed.

"Dunno," James muttered, stamping out the last few glowing embers of the fire and checking over Cal's tack quickly. "The young 'uns done something wrong though."

Ash snorted from within the tent. "I'll say." They were silent for a moment. "Tell ya what, James."

"Uh-huh?" He replied, picking up Cal's feed and walking over to the mare, who greeted him happily and dug in greedily.

"Since last night was so great, I'll let you off duties today, alright?" She said, climbing out of the tent and flashing him a sexy smile.

James raised an eyebrow. "That's very kind of you, love." He walked over to her and kissed her once, then grabbed Cal's saddle and took it back to his mare.

:D Sorry for what happened with the layers here!

Yes, yes they do. My theory for the only fact they're not currently breeding is that the rope doesn't allow it.

You can have that bonus image of them be the breeding image actually - makes things easier. XD

The trail's only three days long! It could have been conceived on the trail though, perhaps on the same night... :eyes:
