You’ve Got Desires – Samuel and Saige Take a Walk, Bill and Jamie Head Home

Boys: 
<Samuel heads out toward the barn with Tommy and Saige, lighting a cigarette as he walks>
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Tommy> How do you like it out here?
Boys: 
<Tommy looks over at Saige> It’s nice. Seems like it’d get boring though.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> It doesn’t.
Boys: 
<Tommy nods> Okay. So what the hell do you do on a Friday night?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> When we were in school..bonfires..dates… <shrugs> You’d have to ask David what the guys did when we weren’t around. There were always parties and shit like that. Movies.
Boys: 
<Tommy nods> Okay.
Boys: 
<Samuel walks ahead, puts his fingers in his mouth and whistles a loud, high pitched whistle>
Girls: 
<Saige looks over at Samuel> Okay..ow.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks over at Saige, smiles> Well, I gotta make sure he can hear me.

Girls: 
<Samuel smiles> Babe, they heard you in the next county.


Boys: 
<Samuel nods> Good. Then I know if he’s *in* the next county, he heard me, too.
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head and laughs>
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles, shakes his head, turns his attention back to the field and barn ahead of them> Harley!
Girls: 
<Saige looks back at Samuel> If he’s not there we can check the house..
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at her> He’s more than likely in the field eatin’ after the horses.
Girls: 
<Saige nods smiles> So I guess he didn’t hear you?
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> If that’s what he’s doin’, he heard me. He just doesn’t care.
Girls: 
<Saige shrugs> So he’s stubborn?
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> When it comes to his food, yeah.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> His food?
Boys: 
<Samuel stops and looks at her> Horse shit, darlin’. Dogs like to eat horse shit.
Boys: 
<Tommy bursts out laughing> That is so gross.
Girls: 
<Saige cringes> Ew.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Tommy> When you were a baby, you liked to eat *your* shit, so don’t judge.
Boys: 
<Tommy blinks> Bullshit.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> Bullshit. <starts walking again> They also like to eat hoof clippings.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Tommy> That much I remember.
Boys: 
<Tommy looks at Saige> About me or dogs?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Dogs.
Boys: 
<Tommy nods> Thank god.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Taryn might remember you eatin’ shit though.
Boys: 
<Tommy shakes his head> Fuck my life.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Tommy> If she does.. I can guarantee she won’t say anything.
Boys: 
<Samuel walks up to the fence, looks at the horses standing around, spots Harley laying in the middle of them chewing a hoof clipping> Fuckin’ dog.
Boys: 
<Tommy nods> That’s because she’s nicer then my brothers.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Yes she is. <looks at him> How ya doin’ with all this?
Boys: 
<Tommy shrugs> I’m doin’.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Better than not doin’.
Boys: 
<Tommy nods>
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> You spent much time with the horses?
Boys: 
<Tommy nods> All day yesterday.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Whaddya think?
Boys: 
<Tommy shrugs> They’re cool. We don’t see horses much in Leesburg.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> I can imagine. When Taryn and I were growing up you could ride down Main Street and there’d be horses tied to posts outside stores.
Boys: 
<Samuel leans against the fence, smoking his cigarette and listening to Tommy and Saige>
Boys: 
<Tommy looks at her, smiles> Like the old West.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Kind of. There were cars too of course.. but some people just rode into town on the horses. <looks at him> The general store still has its post.
Boys: 
<Tommy nods> Cool.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Did you have a favorite from the horses.
Boys: 
<Tommy smiles> David’s.
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> That doesn’t surprise me.
Girls: 
<Saige looks over at Samuel, whispers> Should we go pester your big brother?
Boys: 
<Tommy looks at Saige, arches a brow> I’m not five.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I know.. <shrugs> I figured since he lit a cigarette you’d be wanting to jack it.
Boys: 
<Tommy smirks> Pffft. I jack too many I’m gonna end up gettin’ my ass kicked.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Smart boy. <shrugs> So maybe I’ll jack it.
Boys: 
<Tommy smiles> Yeah. You do that.
Girls: 
<Saige grins> I will.
Girls: 
<Saige heads over to Samuel, takes his cigarette and hits it, hands it back>
Boys: 
<Samuel arches a brow> Just help yourself, darlin’.
Boys: 
<Tommy follows her over>
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I did. <Shrugs> You looked lonely.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> You looked more interested in my underage brother.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at him> So I’m not allowed to talk to your kid brother.
Boys: 
<Samuel arches a brow> Did I say that?
Girls: 
<Saige shrugs and smiles> Jealous?
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> Darlin’, if you’re predilections include underage boys, more power to ya. I figure at least you’ll make a man outta him.
Girls: 
<Saige arches her brow, smiles> He can’t handle me.

Boys: 
<Samuel nods> Guess he’ll learn that, too.
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> Well he’s got a few years to go and plenty of time to figure it out.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> Show him what you can do with a beer bottle and he’ll probably figure it out hella quicker.
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> No babe.. that might scar him for life.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> Then there’s that.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> I’m not into puttin’ kids in therapy.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> I’m sure Jamie’ll appreciate it.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Tommy might not.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at her> Might not appreciate not bein’ put into therapy?
Girls: 
<Saige shrugs> Sure.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> Right. <takes a drag, looks over at the barn> So,show me what an apartment in a barn looks like because I’ve never heard of anything like that before.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Come on then…<pushes off the fence and takes him to the apartment>
Boys: 
<Samuel and Tommy go after her, Harley running after them>
Girls: 
<Saige leads them up the stairs into the apartment that’s rustically decorated, and masculinely furinished there are two bedrooms one of which is an office space>
Boys: 
<Samuel walks in behind her, looks around, looks at Tommy> You believin’ this?
Boys: 
<Tommy shakes his head> No way. <walks over to a window and looks out> This beats the hell out of our camper any day of the week.
Boys: 
<Samuel walks through it, opening doors> Who the hell needs a house *and* a barn with a barn like this?
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> Taryn redecorated for the next ranch hand.. <Shrugs, looks at Tommy> I like that camper.
Boys: 
<Tommy looks at Saige, smiles> I bet you do.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Samuel> Someone that’s living here but wants their privacy.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods to Saige, looks at Tommy> What’s special about the camper?
Boys: 
<Tommy grins> Just that her and David spent a whole week makin’ it rock.
Boys: 
<Samuel arches a brow, smiles, looks at Saige> Really?
Girls: 
<Saige laughs> Takin’ notes? <Saige nods> Pretty much.

Boys: 
<Samuel shakes his head, still smiling, walks toward the back, opens the doors and steps out onto the deck that overlooks the main pasture> Damn.
Boys: 
<Tommy follows him out, stands next to him at the rail, looks out at the horses> It’s pretty.
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Tommy> No shit, it’s pretty.
Girls: 
<Saige watches them>
Boys: 
<Samuel leans on the rail on his forearms, clasping his hands together, one foot on the lower rail, looks out over the horses, Tommy mimics the pose, Samuel to Tommy> Bet it’s hella prettier when the sun sets.
Boys: 
<Tommy nods> I bet. <looks at Samuel> And I bet it smells like horse shit.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles, shakes his head>
Girls: 
<Saige smiles, walks out to the porch leans on the door> From my house this place looks like it’s on fire when the sun sets.
Boys: 
<Samuel straightens, turns around and leans back against the rail with his hands on it> You can see the main house from the front and watch the horses from the back. And be right there if anything happens.
Boys: 
<Tommy smiles> And not have to walk in the rain and snow to get to the barn.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> It’s a pretty perfect set up. And when I get my house built..the house I’m livin’ in will be the breeding facility. Babies everywhere.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods to Tommy, smiles at Saige> And not have to deal with Taryn before coffee.
Girls: 
<Saige nods, and smiles> Well there is that.
Boys: 
<Tommy rolls his eyes> Or listen to the headboard bangin’ against the wall.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> And *that*. <looks at Saige> And still leaves room for company in the main house.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Tommy, arches her brow>
Girls: 
<Saige nods to Samuel> Right. It does. <shrugs> But she’ll probably build a guest house too.
Boys: 
<Samuel shakes his head> That doesn’t make any sense. You’ve already got a guest house. Instead of turnin’ into a breedin’ barn then buildin’ a new guest house, why not just build a new barn?
Boys: 
<Samuel shrugs> You’d spend half as much.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> True.. and she might do that.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods> Hell, if land’s a problem, fence off the house from the rest of the pasture.
Girls: 
<Saige shakes her head> Land isn’t a problem.
Boys: 
<Samuel nods, looks at Tommy> I’m surprised you haven’t been hidin’ out out here.
Boys: 
<Tommy looks at Samuel> I didn’t know this was here.
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles> You’re not much of an explorer then. When me and David were your age, there wouldn’t’ve been an inch of this property we didn’t investigate.
Girls: 
<Saige nods> Me and Taryn too.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles at Tommy> You find my cabin yet?
Boys: 
<Tommy looks back at Saige>They haven’t left me alone without chores long enough to find jack shit.
Girls: 
<Saige smiles> All right.. So I’m thinkin’ maybe *now’s* a good time to do that.
Boys: 
<Tommy smiles> Sweet.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Samuel>
Boys: 
<Samuel looks at Saige> I’m thinkin’ you might be onto somethin’.
Boys: 
<Tommy goes into the bedroom and drags Harley off the bed> Come on, you. We’ve got shit to do.
Girls: 
<Saige looks at Samuel when Tommy goes to get Harley>
Boys: 
<Samuel smiles but doesn’t say anything>
Boys: 
<Tommy heads out with Harley before the adults decide they’re coming with him or inform him they were planning to all along>
