"Amanda, your not a bad persson or short-tempered. You just have your own style. I was back then just a kid taming horses for fun. Now I don't know hwo I am. Some say I'm a robber, some say I should be a sheriff... I know that I want to be a ranch owner and keepr, but still I don't know..." Tepe looked Wildfire and smiled a very small smile.

Amanda (Yes, I called her Amanda) smiled. "Both of us have been attracting attention in our lives. Now, we just want to settle down below the 'attraction seekers', but it won't be easy."

On impulse, she suddenly said, "Why don't you build your ranch in the valley? There's plenty of room and the chameleon stones will give you more than enough money for the supplies."

"Not a bad idea, Amanda. It would take some time, because I can't let the men from the town into the valley, so... We shall see what will happen" Tepe said and smiled he looked Amanda into the eyes and suddenly got a serious face. He came closer to Amanda and kissed her to the lips

Amanda was surprised at Tepe's movement and began to resist. Her resistance didn't last long before she kissed him back. They pulled out of the kiss together, both feeling slightly embarrased.

"Whoa," Amanda muttered to herself, keeping her voice low enough that Tepe couldn't hear. She smiled and stood.

"I had better get back to the valley," she said. "Autumn will be wondering what's taking me so long."

She got up on her horse in a hurry and waved goodbye to Tepe. When she was out of his sight, she brought a hand up to her lips, thinking of what had just happened.

"He's a good kisser, that's for sure," she told herself. Then, she laughed and continued on her way back to the valley.

Tepe smiled as he looked at Amanda riding away. He laughed and then rode into the town to get some tools to start working for the ranch.

*Small time warp*

Tepe hammered the last nail into the wood. He sat down onto the pole next to him. He had made a hut next to the river, fences and a barn. Now he was only missing the animals that would arrive in a few days from the other side of wild west

"Tepe!" Amanda called. He turned to look at her and she walked over to him. "Every time I look out my window, I'm glad you decided to build your ranch here."

((Sadly, we left Curt-Man's character behind again. Let's just say that he is still in the valley and Autumn is trying to get him to talk. She isn't threatening his life with her gun and sword any more, but she still wants to know what he's doing there.))

"Why do you do that, Amanda?" Tepe smiled. He was wearing only his leather pants and a loose shirt. He was sweatty and tired. He walked towards Amanda and watch her. "You miss me?" Tepe smiled

((Yeah... If curt want's, I could hire him to the ranch ))

Amanda grinned and nodded. She looked into the sky, observing the placement of the sun.

"I have to go into town again," she said, rolling her eyes. He understood immediately. People were beginning to suspect that she had found the chameleon mine and they were looking for it. She had to alert the sheriff and get him to do something about it.

"I'll come with you" Tepe said and whistled. Orion rode next to him and Tepe jumped on the back of the horse. He smiled at Amanda. "Better get Wildfire back up, Amanda... It's going to get thought from here" Tepe said and so they rode into the town that was going throught a hurricane because of the chameleon stones popping up somewhere.

Amanda made a face and called for her own horse. Shadow came running immediately and Amanda swung up onto his back.

"I have come to hate Wildfire," she said. "She is everything I don't want to be."

They rode into town and were met with several unfriendly stares. A man came and stood in their path and Amanda moved Shadow to go around the man. He lunged and grabbed Shadow's reins.

"Let go, please," Amanda said. The man laughed and refused. Suddenly, Amanda's eyes turned cold. Wildfire was back. "Remove your hand or I'll remove it for you."

He refused again and she slid off Shadows back, drawing a long knife as she dropped. In a flash, the knife was out and the man screamed in pain. The knife was dripping with blood. Wildfire stepped forward and wiped the knife on the man's shirt.

Wide eyed, he stared at the stump of his arm where he once had a hand. Wildfire turned away and said, "Get to the doctor before you bleed to death."

She went into the sheriff's office. "Sheriff, people are continuing their search for the chameleon stone. Some are coming very close to my land and I would like you to do something about it."

"Sorry, Miss O'Reiley," he said politely. "I'm afraid that land has been reposessed by the government. It's no longer yours. You'll have to move."

"What??" she snapped. "Greedy government! It wants all the wealth in the country and will stop at nothing to get it." She straightened. "Well you can tell the government that I won't go along with it. We will do everything we possibly can to keep that land."

She stalked out of the building and was stopped by another man.

"You killed my brother," he said. "I'm here to pay you back."

"Do you have a name?" Wildfire demanded. "I prefer to avoid shooting nameless people."

"Tyler Peel, younger brother of Royce Peel," the man replied. Wildfire nodded. In a flash, Tyler's gun came out. Wildfire's was faster and Tyler's gun dropped as he stared down at his chest where a hole now ran directly through his heart.

Wildfire called for Shadow to come and got on his back. Tepe caught up with her and was just in time to witness a change in her. Wildfire slipped away and Amanda came back.

"Why must the government do this to us?" she said, nearly in tears. "Must they take everything of any great value?"

She sighed. "I'm tired of the world, so greedy and insensitive. All I want is to live quietly without anyone paying attention to me. Will the government ever allow that?"

Wiping her tears away, she rode on toward the valley.

Tepe rode next to Amanda. "Amanda, I have my ranch. It's my property still, and the government can't take my ranch. We could lock any passageways into the valley and so on. Amanda... I..." Tepe said and then just got quiet. He looked straight towards the mountains. He had anger in his eyess but still something hidden was in the quietness

"My name is Autumn O'Reiley," Autumn answered, removing her sword from his neck.

Tepe rode with Amanda and they stopped next to the hut. Tepe looked Amanda and climbed off from his horse. Tepe looked Amanda that was evading to look at his eyes. "Amanda... Iss something else bothering you?" Tepe asked and walked to Amanda. He put his right arm at Amandas shoulder.

"Amanda, is there something else bothering you?" Tepe repeated his question and tried to make eye contact with her

Amanda shook her head. "You don't understand, Tepe. The government thinks it owns everything. They don't care who legally owns the land. It belongs to them and they will do with it what they please."

_______________

Autumn smiled carefully thought of her reply to Eric. "This is a valley owned by my sister and I. We are overly protective because we can't stand the thought of it being altered in any way. A friend of ours has built a ranch here as well, seeking a life of peace."

Her smile disappeared. "We have all lived public lives in one way or another and we all want to disappear. This was the perfect place. You are the only person who has found it. We would prefer it if you didn't leave. You can become a ranch hand for my friend if you like. He's been looking for someone to do that job."

"Amanda... I... Uh... I understand that, but... Oh, nothing... I'll be in my ranch" Tepe said and climbed onto his horse. He rode away as fast as he could. He stopped at his small ranch and climbed off from his horse. Tepe let Orion free to go wherever it would want to in the valley, and Tepe himself went to eat into the house.

Amanda watched Tepe go and followed slowly behind.

______________________________


Autumn watched as Eric stood to his full height. She was surprised at his height, for he hadn't looked so tall while crouched on the ground. Fully expecting that Eric would follow her, Autumn turned toward Tepe's ranch.

Tepe approached his ranch alone, which was a surprise to Autumn. Where was Amanda? For a moment, Autumn pushed this question aside and introduced Tepe to Eric.

"He is willing to help on your ranch," she told Tepe. Then she glanced around. "Where's Amanda? Didn't you two go into town together?"

"Amanda and I separated near the mines. I came here to eat. So, Eric. Nice to meet you. You will get 20 dollars a week and the food you will eat. We shall now on get shifts who goes fishing, takes care of the animals and so on. Welcome to the ranch" Tepe turned towards two hills where Orion was now running freely. He watched as Orion stopped to look towards someone that was approaching. Tepe smiled and turned. "Oh, Autumn, your sister has something to tell you when you find her."

"I don't really care how big fish you got, I would've shooten the fish as soon as it would surface. So, you could first go train yourself a horse. There's just the right aged male horse. It's in the fencing. There's a sadle on the fence and a lasso on the pole. I'll be in the main house making some paperwork." Tepe said and left Eric to go to the fencing behind the house. Tepe walked into the house and sat down next to a large table where was papers everywhere

Amanda rode into the valley and went straight to her cabin. The door slammed shut behind her. She was not in a good mood and it was in times like these that Wildfire began to resurface. Though she claimed to have a desire to stay away from Wildfire, her wilder side was, at times, a comfort. She stared into the mirror.

"What're you lookin' at?" Wildfire snapped at the mirror. Amanda's wide eyes looked back.

"I'm looking at what I once was," she answered. "I am wondering how I ended up that way."

"You know how it happened," Wildfire retorted. "Royce Peel killed your brother right in front of you, your daddy and your mama. You did the best thing you could think of and shot Peel in the hand, remember? Therefore, here comes me!"

"I shot Mr. Peel because he would have shot me," Amanda whispered. Wildfire snorted.

"Peel's no 'mister'," she snapped. "Never was. You know that. But that's not what I've come to you for. You need me and you know it. Even as we speak, you are beginnin' to weaken. You are becomin' me once more."

"I can't hold on to the valley," Amanda said. "Tepe's ranch and everythin' that the three of us have worked to preserve will be overrun by the government. I feel that something's gotta be done, but we aren't in a place to resist them."

"Not with weak Amanda at the head," Wildfire agreed. "You see? You know you need me. It will not be until you let me out that you will understand what must be done."

"It's always a bad sign when you start soundin' like me and I start soundin' like you," Amanda complained. "It means you're comin' out."

"Is that such a terrible thing?" Wildfire asked, tilting her head to one side. Amanda smashed the mirror with her right fist.

"Yea," she answered, her eyes flashing. "It's terrible bad."

Suddenly, she whirled to see Autumn come in. Autumn smiled at her sister, a favor Amanda/Wildfire forced herself to return. Autumn's eyes took in the shattered pieces of the mirror and she arched her eyebrows.

"Ready for seven years of bad luck?" she asked playfully. She was joking, but Amanda was not in the mood.

"I've already had twenty years of it, what's seven more?" she snapped. Autumn's eyes flew open and she ran to embrace her sister.

"Whatever happened, you must let it go," she said. Wildfire pulled herself away from her sister.

"The mine and all the land around it are being repossessed by the government," she whispered fiercely. "I'm not about to let that happen. We will fight, do you understand?"

"Anything you say," Autumn answered, but her answer was unheard by Wildfire, who by this time had stalked out the door.

Tepe jumped off from his horse and stormed into Amanda's cabin. "Amanda! I found a way to..." He noticed the mirror in pieces. He pulled himself together and stood on the door, looking at Amanda

((ooh... Split personality...Like Gollum/Sméagol))

((Autumn is in the room. Amanda/Wildfire just walked outside. Ya, the split personality is what I was going for and just like Smeagol/Gollum, the more aggressive side has won for the time being.))


Autumn stood in shock at her sister's sudden change in attitude. She vaguely heard Tepe enter the room and turned to face him.

"She broke the mirror," she said. "I joked about bad luck, but she didn't joke. Something is wrong." Her eyes focused on Tepe. "Something is very wrong."

Tepe turned. He watched Amanda walk away. "Ama-" Tepe started but then looked Autumn. He ran after Amanda. "Wildfire! Stop!"

Autumn's face paled when Tepe called Amanda 'Wildfire'. She began to shake her head fiercely.

"No," she moaned. "Please not that. No, no, no, no."

Wildfire, on the other hand, turned to glare at Tepe.

"What is it, McDagger?" she grinned. "Did ya miss me?"

"Wildfire, back up. I wan't to speak with Amanda" Tepe said, closening up on her. "And call me Bullseye when you speak" Tepe said specifically to Wildfire. He glared at her quietly. He showed his anger at Wildfire.
((Hope you don't mind))
"No. Amanda needs me. She won't speak with you"
Bullseye watched Wildfire. "You know what, I have another side too. And it ain't as nice as I am. Now, I want to speak with Amanda!" Tepe shouted, stepping closer and drawing his pistol.
"You won't use that. You would kill Amanda in the same moment you shoot me"
"Maybe, but I know your weakness" Tepe said and put his pistol away. "I know how you will back off. Even for a minute"
Tepe stepped fastly towards Wildfire and kissed her. Wildfire tried Tepe off, but soon Tepe found Amanda kissing him back. They departed from each other and Tepe looked as a sweet smile came to her moth. It was Amanda again.
"Amanda, I found a solution to avoid fighting. Legally, my ranch is it's own property in the valley you and Autumn own. If I buy more land, it will block the way to the mine, so you can mine there still. Allso, I got a message, saying the deputy was killed in a gunfight just after we left. So now there's no-one to evict us until the next deputy will come. Sure, the sheriff is still here, but he's a drunk. He won't give us any problems"
Tepe looked Amandas smile and kissed her again, now a shorter kiss to hear Amanda's answer

"Buy the whole valley," Amanda said. "I don't want the mine, remember? All I want is a quiet place to live. I don't want to be noticed and have my life be a public show."

Suddenly, a smile lit up her face. "I'm gonna have to let Wildfire back out for a minute. I'll make sure she doesn't fight, but I've got an idea she'd do well with."

A fire blazed through Amanda's eyes and Wildfire laughed.

"Now I remember why I kept Amanda around!" she exclaimed. "Bullseye... Tepe, or whatever you want to be called, do you have some explosives?"

((I don't mind if you don't mind ))

"I believe so," Tepe answered. "Why?"

"We're gonna need them," Wildfire answered. She followed Tepe to his ranch and he showed her where his explosives were. She took an armful and headed for the entrance to the valley. The entrance tunnel was made of solid rock.

"We just need to close this," Wildfire said. She got straight to work, making holes in the rock tunnel and sliding the explosives into the holes. "You're not gonna wanna be around here when I'm done!"

///2 hours later...\\\

Wildfire grinned as she slid the last explosive into place. She lit the fuses and ran like crazy to get away. Even so, the explosion knocked her off her feet, jarring Amanda back into control. She sat up with a moan.

"Well that's a wonderful piece of work!" she exclaimed sarcastically. "When I said close it, I didn't mean permanently. How are we going to get supplies now?"

"Time for part two of my plan," Wildfire retorted. "You just didn't give me time to finish."

"Well hurry up!" Amanda snapped. "I'm tired of sitting back and watching you blow things to pieces."

"Step two," Wildfire said, "start digging."

"What?" Amanda demanded. "Start digging? What is there to dig to?"

"You see, Amanda," Wildfire explained, "when we first came here, I was in total control... who knows what woke you up? I expected this, if your 'senseless' mind can remember."

Amanda gasped. "Of course! I had forgotten."

"The tunnel!" Wildfire exclaimed gleefully. (Reminds me of Gollum/Smeagol in the Return of the King ) "It leads out, so all we have to do is dig down to it."

"Yes, I'd imagine the bushes on the other end are well grown up by now," Amanda said, a grin spreading across her face. Suddenly, she frowned. "But how are we going to find it on this end?"

Wildfire let out a shriek of laughter. "Did you really think I would do all that work without marking where the tunnel should come up? Really, Amanda, you're not as smart as I thought."

"Oh, shut up," Amanda retorted. "I run my mental processes off the same information you do."

"Yea, yea," Wildfire said, sounding bored. "What else is new?"

"Can we just get to work now?" Amanda begged. Wildfire smacked her forehead.

"Of course!" she exclaimed. She paused and smiled. "I'd say follow me, but... you are me."

"I'd say lead the way," Amanda retorted, "but that would hurt too much, seeing as we can't be separated."

"Right," Wildfire said, her eyes sparkling. She 'led the way' and 'followed herself' to the mark.

"Tepe could help us with this," Amanda said. Wildfire nodded.

"Bullseye!" she yelled. Even across the valley, he could hear her. "Get over here!"

"Damn she has a good voice" Tepe whispers and hops on Orion. He is next to Wildfire and Amanda in the matter of a few minutes. "What now Wildfire?" Tepe asked, trying to keep Orion still. He smiled as he noticed the sparkle of Amanda in Wildfire's eyes

"We need your arms," she told him. He noted that she said we and looked around for Autumn, but Wildfire/Amanda laughed and shook her head. "No, no. Amanda and I need your arms."

"She's right, Tepe," Amanda said. "When we first came here, Wildfire was in almost complete control. She suspected that the valley would be repossessed by the government, so she made preparations to avoid that."

"As you know," Wildfire continued, "I have demolished the original entrance to the valley. It was the only entrance, but we now need to make a new one. When we first came here, I dug a tunnel from the outside. It burrows through the roots of the surrounding mountains and ends in a cluster of bushes on the other end."

"We need to dig down at this mark," Amanda said. "Wildfire marked this as the place the tunnel would come up. If we dig down at a slant," she motioned toward the mountains, "we'll run into the tunnel."

"Grab a shovel and start digging," Wildfire ordered, picking one up herself. "I'll start over on this side of the mark, you start on that side."

"It'll go faster if we work together," Amanda objected. Wildfire shook her head.

"No it won't," she retorted. The same amount of dirt will be displaced at the end of the job."

Tepe watched this exchange in amusement. A split personality can be very entertaining to watch.

"But we'll be throwing dirt into his hole!" Amanda objected. Wildfire rolled her eyes.

"We will not!" she snapped. "We don't have to toss the dirt that way. Over this way works just as well."

They were still arguing as they began to dig.

Tepe watched in amusment as the girl started digging, arguing with herself. Tepe climbed off from his horse and started digging. He was smiling widly.

((Nice to see you got to the computer ))

((Ya, it's been a while, but this week is a good week for me to be on. My parents are gone for the week. I'll probably cut back on my time here when they get back. (which reminds me) I've got somewhere to go. Since I don't really have anything else to add here at this time, I'll get off for now. See you later tonight maybe (what time is it where you live?)))

((Still going. I just didn't have anything to add at that time.))


Amanda/Wildfire caught sight of Tepe's grin.

"What's so funny?" Wildfire demanded. Amanda nodded.

"Yes, please, tell us so we can laugh too," she added.

((Wow! this is getting strange. I like it! ))
