The Axe Was Clearly Out
That was easy to see when it came to GB, Jet knows he’s a good “actor” and all but when it came to trusting him with a sharp blade at the end of a 2 and a half foot pole.
"Come on GB we can’t chopp down a tree, we need to find thick enough pieces already fallen from the trees, f we chop afresh tree down it will be wet inside. and when we burn it’ll pop in the fire and make more smoke then dry limbs would." Jet said as he argued with GB.
"How would you know? This is the first time we’ve needed to get our own firewood from the actual woods before!" Gb replied talking to Jet like he would a small child. Jet just gritted his teath and kept moving until he found a large limb laying across the path. he inspected it making sure it was dry.
"Here we go, this is what we need for the fireplace." Jet said sounding relieved, the sooner he got enough wood the sooner he got away from GB. He started to chop the limb, but when he swung the axe downit felt stuck.
"Who said you could chop the wood?" GB asked. "You’ll cut off your own foot." Jet jerked the axe away from GB not bothering to respond stepped over the limb and raised the axe again. GB not noticing at first what Jet was doing, until he saw the axe coming down.
"WHAAAT THE HELL?!"He screamed as he fell back landing on his rear in pile of brush. When he looked up he saw Jet just continuing to chop up the limb and ignoring GB’s yelling.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~20 minutes later~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
"You didn’t have to scare me like that." GB said as he sulked with his arms full of wood. Jet just smiled while carrying his own small pile under one arm the axe thrown over his shoulder.
"You shouldn’t have grabbed the axe." was all Jet said as they neared the house.
"Bet you won’t be so happy with yourself when Frannie hears what you did." Gb said as he took off toward the back door of the house soon as it came into view. Jet cursed under his breath, as he just watched GB take off. ‘Great here comes the drama mam act.’ he walked over to the side of the house and laid down his pile of wood, and turned to put the axe back in the shed. ‘Who decided to put the
damn storage shed so far from the house?’ he thought as he walked a slightly overgrown pathway.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~deeper into the woods~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Albert continued walking he had been startled when he heard a scream ealier just to chuckle when he heard seconds later GB’s loud yells carry through the trees.’That could be a problem. sound carries much to well out here. Gotta make sure everything stay quite then.’ he told himself as he walked on expecting the path and found a large fallen tree, part of it’s roots were sticking out above the ground having come out when it had fell apparently. He walked around and saw you could easily cross over the fallen giant from one side and be blind to the person from the other. “Just what I was looking for.” he said with a satisfied look.
As he started to turn away he heard a women yell. “JET!” And instinctivly head off towards the house at a dead run.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~at the house~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Jet fliniched as he walke back into the hous. only to be met by a pissed off looking Frannie,
"Not now Francoise I am tired, and i never even came close to touching him. he just assumed he would be hit." Jet said with a tired sigh.
He looked into the living room as he passed it up in favor for the kitchen.’ I need a beer and something to eat before chang caught him in the fridge. as he stood straight from the fride with a couple of bottles in one hand, and a store bought turkey sandwich, only to turn to see Frannie once more, looking even angrier if that was possible.
"Don’t ever walk away from me when I’m talking." Frannie hissed into Jet’s face.’oh great the gorgon has come out early.’ he mused while stepping away and around Frannie.
"Look I know what I was doing ok? He would have ended up hurting either me or him if he chopped the wood." he said as he walked towards the stairs, the back door burst open, revealing a out of breath Albert.
"What’s wrong?" he asked as he looked Jet up and down as he grabbed his shoulder startling Jet slightly, making his stomache begin to get warm again.
"Nothing I just scared GB-" he tried to say as he held out a beer for Albert, only to be cut off by Franny saying loudly, "He nearly sunk the axe into GB’s skull, he could’ve really hurt him. playing around with something so dangerous as a axe when he barely even can handle a knife when he ‘helps’ Chang with to food." Frannie said with a snide to her voice. Jet just ducked his head ready for the yells of everyone to start.
"Did it ever occur to either of you that Jet might actually be able to do something with out you picking away at him the whole time!" he heard from in front of him.
He glanced up to see Albert glaring at Franny almost as if to dare her to say something but the other seemed to in shock to respond. “Come on Jet how bout you help me finish unpacking my thing while you eat huh?” Albert asked sliding his one of his arms around Jet’s shoulders leading him up stairs before the other’s could come to they’re senses.
"Sure." Jet said ducking his head again only to hide the warmth on his face this time, as a large smile took over his lips.
