Apple goes into the lab. "Why on earth did you tell her that you can't trust her? Then in the same breath you are telling her that she is a good agent. You sir need to get your priorities straightened out. You have not been completely trustworthy either the past few weeks. Now you are my friend and I love you, but you need to reevaluate what you have said to Kitana. And you need to follow her and apologize for your behavior, she is going to the hotel to pack." (OOC: Momma Apple says so!)

Kit and Pidge heard the scream. It was Bess.
Luckily they were able to get inside.
Bess was screaming and shaking in her sleep.

Pidge gently woke her.
Pidge'Are you ok?'

Artemus looked at Apple and Kissed her on the forehead "You are right of course Little Apple."

Artemus went and saddled his bay and headed toward town.

Kit looked at Bess "Bess are you ok?

Bess looked at her "It was a nightmare."
Kit oured her some water and handed her the glass "What was it about?"

"Well me I am about to head to Old Mexico as soon as I get things packed. Are you sure it was nothing?"

Just then they heard a Knock on the door Kit opened the door it was Artemus.

"Good you haven't left yet."

"What do you want Mr. Gordon" He pulled her out in the hallway and shut the door.

Pidge shook her head and turned back to Bess "Are you sure it was nothing, it might help get ride of it if you talk about it."

Artemus looked at her straight in the eyes, he had seen those eyes many of times before and most of the time they had that same hauted look in them he saw now.. He had seen them sparkle he knew, during the war when he and kyle would go to the saloon with the other guys, and when Kit was working with Pet to blow something up. But now there was more to them a deepness he hadn't seen before she broke the silence.

"I think we have both said enough for one day."

"You can't leave like this."

"Really why not? Could it be you feel guilty could it be you finally realize what I did was not ment to hurt you.. Or did you finally realize you were being a jerk."

He sighed and looked away "A little of all of that, listen Kitana I am sorry, I did not mean what I said, but to find out that I was myself in front of a woman well..."

She turned his face to meet hers "Artemus, you and I were good friends during the war that shouldn't change there were only two things I lied about during the war and that was being a man and my feelings for you... Those feelings will never change but they can never be and I understand that."

Artemus looked adown at her and he realized he knew somehow he awlays knew and it wasn't that she made him feel exposed now but that he could be so open and free with her it scared him. He silently wished that he could meld the two women, Pet and Kit but he knew that couldn't be.

"Kit, I.. " She leaned up and kissed him, melting into his arms she was finally doing something she longed to do for so many years. He was warm and inviting and she wished she could stay this way forever. Artiemus couldn't believe this or how he felt, this seemed so right.

When they parted she smiled and gave him a hug "It is not meant to be for us, but I do hope we can be friends for as long as the fates allow us to be on this earth."

He smiled "I would like that Kitana, Just no more stories."

She looked up at him "No more stories if you promise to take me drinking on occasion"

He laughed "As long as you pay for your own drinks"

They were both laughing loudly as Pidge opened the door...

Pidge looked at them both and smiled "I take it everything is ok out here."

Kit Smiled "Yes Pidge now if you will excuse me I have to go pack."

Artemus looked at her "You are still leaving?"

"Yes but I'll be back."

Pidge looked at Artemus "Artie Dear would you stay here with Bess, She is having fitful sleep and I need to go get dressed and talked to Kit."

"I would be honored" He sat down in a chair next to the bed

"Well check on you later Bess, assuming I don't kill Kit."

Kit shruged her shoulders and followed Pidge out and into another room. Pidge turned around "You are not going to dinner looking like that go change."

"Yes Ma'am" Kit gave her a mock salute and went to her room to change. She meet pidge in the dining hall Kit was dressed in traveling clothes.

Pidge looked at kit "I see you still plan on leaving"

Kit sipped her tea "Yeah I need to get away from this."

Pidge smiled at her "You might change your mind when I tell you what I know"
Kit leaned onto the table"Just what is it that you know"
"DO you remeber a Dr. Dougles Parker?"
Kit's eyes lit up "Yes I remeber him.. Why?"
"He is in town and looking for you."
"OH you mean Kyle?"
"Nope you." Pidge sipped her tea "Seems he knew about you when he was working with you."
"What? and How do you know him"
Pidge got this really big smile"I knew him before the war he was..is like a brother to me.He wants to meet you will you?"
Kit nodded to her friend as there meal came "sure what will one more day cost."

It was then that Pet came storming into the dining hall "Artemus said I would find you here"

Bess looked at Artie.
Bess'They are just being overprotective of me, go to your wife. We've all been thru the emotional wringer around her and your wife needs you.
Artie'I will in a minute, but I want to talk to you about a few things.'
Bess'As in Jim?'
Artie'Yes, I was so shocked about you two when I found out. But then I wondered about you two because you acted so much alike.'
Bess'I nearly fell off the train that day someone told me I had a Jim West attitude. Don't worry about Jim, I would never do anything to hurt him, I just like to aggravate him now and then.'
Artie'Like an old married couple.'
Bess'Exactly but we won't be married, we did talk about it maybe in the distance future, just not right now. Don't worry about Jim, I'll take care of Jim, just take care of Pet.'

*Apple and James sit in the parlor car discussing what has been happening lately.*

James:"Apple you have not seemed yourself since the Captain left for DC, and well, I'm worried about you. Care to talk about it?" concern radiated from his eyes. Apple pretended to smile, but it did not show in her eyes at all.

Apple:"James, I am tired of being Momma Apple my whole life, and not having children to mother. Why is it that I feel the need to mother a bunch of adults?" She is holding her head up with her fingertips, rubbing her temple just a little.

Janes:"It is part of your nature. You care what happens to people, and about how they feel. You want to make it all better, then you get angry when they have their adult point of view." He reached over and patted her hand, then took it in his own. "We are all very lucky to have you, and I for one thank you for caring." He squeezes her hand then lets it go. Apple smiles at his words and then excuses herself. "If you don't mind James, I need a rest from the days activities, would you escort me back to the Flowing Spring?"

As Apple and James walk to the Flowing Spring there are signs of the approaching Centennial Celebration honoring the day that the Declaration of Independance was signed in 1776. Apple smiles at the thought of real fireworks, not Pet and Artemus' bombs. "My aunt and my niece share the fourth as a birthday, did you know that James?" She laughs and he smiles at her, encouraging the better mood.

Jim:"Well we will have more than one reason to celebrate the Centennial then. What do you say we talk the others into a picnic?" She grins and takes off at a run to tell everyone else that they are going to celebrate the next day in style, with Jim trying to catch up.

Jim knocked on Bess's door.
Jim'Bessie are you in there?'
Bess looked at Artie.
Bess'I'm sorry Artie, but don't you even think about calling me that.'
Bess opened the door.
Bess'Well, we were just talking about you. Come on in.'
Jim'Talking about me? I hope it was all good.'
Bess'It was, no Artie, I don't need babysitting, please go to your wife.'
Jim informed Bess and Artie about the idea Apple had come up with.
Bess'That would be great, where do we start?'
Jim'Why was Artie in here babysitting you?'
Bess'Oh, I fell asleep and had a stupid nightmare...Kit and Pidge just wanted to make sure I'm ok.'
Jim'Is it the house burning nightmare?'
Bess'Yes, I don't get it like I use to, but I guess with people talking about the war. But I don't want to talk about it. What can we start doing for the celebration tomorrow?'

Apple is chatting happily with the kitchen staff at the hotel, telling them what she wants for the big Centennial picnic the group will go on tomorrow. Since Apple comes from money she spares no expense and also has the concierge plan for a wagon and team so that the group can travel together.

Bess goes downstairs to see what she can help Apple with.

Bess'Feeling any better Momma Apple?'
Apple'Oh Bess not you too.'
Bess'I think you need this.'
Bess gives Apple a big hug.
Bess'And thanks for having this idea, this is what we really need.'

Apple returns the hug wholeheartedly. "I needed a diversion to plan Bess." She laughs at her joke, "I mean a fun diversion of course, not one to keep us safe from henchmen!" Bess and Apple look over the menu for the big day.

After dinner, Pidge knocks on Dr. Parker's door. He answers it with a robe on and a damp towel on his head. Drying off his hair, he invites Pidge in.

Pidge looks at him as she walks in and says, "I don't know if this is such a good idea for me to be walking into your room like this."

Dr. Parker looks down at himself and grins. "Are you afraid of scandal, Pidge"

Pidge laughs and answers, "yeah. That robe looks terrible on you. What? Don't you ever buy anything new for yourself?"

Dr Parker laughs and tussles Pidge's hair. She pushes him away and fusses over it in the mirror. "Leave my hair alone, big boy. You never did learn, did you?" She throws him a side look with a mischievous grin.

"Doug, I spoke with Kit today."

He stops and listens.

"She's willing to talk with you but I didn't mention any torch. That's going to be up to you, sweetheart.

(she pauses)

"How would you like to go with Jeremy and me and Kit to the Centennial Celebration tomorrow? We can help you break the ice but you'll have to take it from there, ok?"

Parker: "That sounds great, Pidge, but who is Jeremy?"

Pidge finishes fixing her hair and turns to him. She looks at him dead on and says, "That's my new beau.

Doug. Life has to go on. I will always love Horatio. You know that. I hope. Horatio loved me and I him but he never intended me to be unhappy. He never intended me to stop living.

(she looks down in thought)

Doug. I don't know where this is going. Maybe nowhere. Maybe somewhere but right now he fills a hole in my heart.

Please don't be upset with me."

Doug's eyes go up in surprise. Somehow he never pictured Pidge with anyone but the Colonel. He resumes towel-drying his hair while he ponders this new admission.

"Well, Pidge. It is your life and you're a grown woman. I guess you know what you want.

Hmmm. Is he good to you? How long have you known him? How do you know he's not after your money? You know there are a lot of men out there who would jump at a chance to marry a rich, good-looking widow like yourself. Could be a gold-digger. Maybe you had better let someone who isn't so caught up check up on this guy. What's his full name?"

The questions were being fired out left and right. After all, she was like a sister to him and he wasn't about to let her get hurt again. Especially from some no-good money-grubbin' horse thief.

Parker was already forming an opinion in his mind of someone he was sure he wasn't going to like. Protective of his "sister" and the memories he carried with him.

Pidge holds up her arm with her hand palm out. As if to stop this barrage of questions.

"Hold your horses there, buddy. I'm not marryin' the guy. I like him. (she lifts a little defiant chin up at him). But I'm not marrying him."

Now she puts both hands on her hips and keeps her defiant attitude up.

"Be nice to him, Douglas. He was sweet on me before I even knew I had money.

Really, Douglas. (she shakes her head at him) You have to let go of some memories."

Her defiant attitude is now replaced with a concerned look. "It's ok to let go."

Parker is still not sure he's ready to let go of anything but he hugs Pidge and assures her that he won't embarrass her in front of Jeremy.


He is an honorable man and true to his word. That's what Pidge always admired about him. She was glad that they had such a close familial relationship. She kissed him on the cheek and told him that they would meet up with him tomorrow morning.

Now it was time to look for Jeremy.

James finds his partner in the saloon of the hotel. Arte is nursing his second brandy. Jim claps him on the shoulder.

"Well what are we drinking to, Pal?" He flashes those pearly whites at his partner. Arte barely looks up, instead staring off into the mirror behind the bar. "Drinking to? Well take your pick James. The Centennial of these United States that we work for, the end of Loveless' lightening machine, or the annulment of my marriage?" He slugs back the brandy then motions for another.

Jim is surprised at this development. He and Arte had discussed this and this was not where he had been going. Jim motions for a brandy as well. "Artemus, what happened? This is not what you and Pet planned."

Artemus looks at Jim in the mirror. His face is solemn. "I think...I think...HELL JIM! I don't know what I think. Everyone has been thinking FOR me lately. I knew my own mind at one time, about two weeks ago, and now everyone is making me second guess myself!" He wipes his face with his hand and covers his eyes.

"Jim, I let Kitana kiss me today. She has been harboring feelings for me since the war. I don't know what to make of it, but I feel like dropping out of sight for a while because of the hurt I have caused her. Told her I didn't trust her. It isn't true, of course. I was just..." he stops, and Jim finishes the sentence for him.

"You were shocked that the man you knew was a woman, and that you didn't know. It would upset anyone." He lets that sink in for a moment, then adds, "When are you going to quit letting everyone else think for you Artemus, and think for yourself again?"

Artemus finally turns to look his partner in the eye. "Right now, Jim, right now."

Artemus strides out of the saloon with a purpose. Jim shakes his head, then follows at a distance. He hears Pet’s voice coming from the dining room and she sounds…well…like Pet. He stops at the dining room entrance and watches his partner advance on his wife and Kitana.

Artemus reaches out and takes Pet’s arm by the elbow. “Pet, we have to talk right now, please,” he says quietly. “Just come with me?” The look in his brown eyes made Pet melt, and she forgot her mission in the dining room. Artemus turned to Kitana, “Please, Kit, excuse us, won’t you?” Kit, speechless, nods at him, and he gives her a strong smile. “Thanks Kitana, and, well, I’m sorry. I should never have said what I did to you about trust. Please forgive me.” Those same brown eyes look at her imploringly. She just nods and waves them off.

Artemus pretends to doff his hat to her, then steers Pet from the dining room. He opens the French doors leading to the garden and leads her to a bench under a large elm tree. She sits, and he joins her. Taking her hand he looks into her eyes. She searches them and finds that they are conveying many things, sorrow, concern...love. She smiles at him, “What is it Artemus?” Her voice is different when she is with him. She is herself with him.

He sighs, “I just have something to tell you, something that I have finally realized. I have realized that it is time to settle things down. I have been letting others think for me lately, and I have come to the conclusion that it is going to stop right now. I love you Pet, and no matter what, we are staying married. We will cross bridges, burn bridges, I don’t care. All I know is that today I realized that you are the woman I have been looking for all along.”


Pet smiles at him lovingly, “What made you come to this conclusion today, love?” She holds tight to his hand.

Arte never takes his eyes from hers as he tells her. “I let Kitana kiss me today.” He searches her eyes for disdain, contempt, but finds none. Instead she looks right back at him and asks, “Did you learn anything from that?”

He smiles, “I’ve already told you Pet. You are the woman for me. I could have had feelings for Kitana back then, but I didn’t know her as Kitana. She was Kyle, my friend, my comrade, my drinking buddy. Years have passed, and I have you. There is no other, ever.” Pet leans in and kisses her husband, as she tells him, “We WILL either cross or burn bridges together.”

Jim left Artie and went back to find Bess. All of this going on with Artie made him want to see Bess.

Bess and Apple were still discussing the menu when Jim came in.
Jim'Apple do you mind if I see Bess a minute?'
Apple'Go on Bess.'
Bess'Ok, but I'll be right back.'
