"The Promise"

A blond man with a piercing emerald gaze stood standing in the doorway of his house watching as his oldest daughter pulled out onto the road and headed home. He stood there at watched at the clouds began to form into one; anyone could tell that there was a storm brewing up. After a few minutes of watching the sky he turned around back into his trailer pulling the door shut behind him. As he walked in, he saw that is daughter had left her sweater lying on his bed. A small smile came upon his handsome features as he walked over to the bed. He reached down and picked up the cream colored sweater and began to fold it, as he did so, the conversation that they barley had still lingered in his mind.

A dark car pulled up in front of the trailer with a beautiful young woman inside.

"Well hey there Jr." Her father said.

"Hey daddy," Alma Jr. said.

Alma Jr. Stepped out of the car and walked over and gave her father a hug and a peck on the side of the cheek.

"So do you like the car?" the young woman asked.

"Yea, is it your?" Her father asked.

"It's Kirks'" She replied

"But I thought you were seeing Troy," Ennis stated.

"Daddy, that was like two years ago," Alma Jr. replied

"Is Troy still playing baseball?" He inquired.

"Daddy I don't know, I'm seeing Kirk now," She replied.

"So what's he do?" He asked.

"He works out in the oil field." Alma Jr. said.

"Well a rough neck huh, well I guess since you nineteen you can do what you want now huh," He joked,

They both went inside of his trailer. When they were inside Alma Jr. went to the side of the bed and sat down as her father brought her a cup of tea.

"So what's the occasion," Ennis asked.

"Me and Kirk, Daddy, I'm getting married," Alma Jr. said looking her father in the eye with the exact same emerald gaze.

"This Kirk, does he love you," the older but still very handsome Ennis replied.

"Yes daddy, he does," she replied.

"The thing is daddy, I was hoping that you would be there to walk me down the aisle," the young woman said.

"When is the wedding?" He asked.

"Its two weeks away," She replied.

"Well," her father stated, "That's when I have to go on another cattle run."

Ennis watched as a saddened look spread across the young woman's face. A pang of guilt hit him in the stomach like a ton of bricks. He could only remember and feel the pain when he would see that same look on the face of the only person he truly loved. A sudden decision suddenly came to his mind, because he was tired of hurting the people he loved.

"But, I reckon they can find themselves a new cowboy, my daughter is getting married," He said

"Thanks daddy," Alma Jr. said wrapping her arm around her father.

Ennis Wrapped his arms around his daughters shoulders and pulled her closer to him.

"Your welcome darlin."

'Damn', Ennis thought, 'I can't believe that she is getting married', the blond man made his way over to his closet with his daughters sweater in his hand, he opened the door and placed the item at the top shelf. When he stood back he looked at the Jack's blue long sleeved shirt lining the inside of his own shirt. He slowly picked up the hanger that was holding both shirts and brought it into his chest. He could still smell the slight lingering scent that used to belong to the one man that managed to inevitably capture his heart and soul. Closing his eyes tight silent tears began to stream down his tanned face as he sunk to the floor clutching the shirt tighter to his body. After a few minutes he slowly felt himself loosing consciousness, but right before he drifted off into sleep, a familiar warm feeling came into his body.

A cool breeze blew across the plains and through the mountains. A young man standing on the side of a hill overlooking the lake inhaled the sweet mountain scent. As he slowly opened his eyes, he took in the surrounding of Brokeback Mountain. Before him a grass plain leaded down to the blue crystal lake which was at the bottom of the beautiful mountains. Trees surrounded the lake and the mountain making it look like heaven. A peaceful feeling filled the blond man's body as

Two arms circled around his body and pulled him back into a strong chest. A sweet whispered voice was spoken into his ear.

"Hey there cowboy," the young man said.

"Jack," The blond stuttered feeling his eyes start to water.

"I'm here," the dark haired man said.

"But how, I thought you were dead," Ennis stated as a tear slid down his face and landing on one of Jack's hand.

"I am, the only way I can be with you is in your dreams," Jack said.

"I thought I lost you," Ennis muttered as more tears slipped down his face.

Jack lowered them down to the ground holding onto the blond man as tight as he could, "Ennis, I would never leave you. I have always been with you."

"It's been so hard," The blond said.

"I know, and I'm so sorry," Jack whispered. "But I'm here for you now cowboy."

"Please don't leave me," Ennis whispered.

"I will never leave you," Jack whispered

The two men sat there on the side of the grassy hill that looked over the lake holding each other. After what seemed to be like a life time Jack pulled back and helped Ennis up off the ground.

"There's something that I need to tell you Ennis," Jack stated.

"What's that rodeo," Ennis replied.

"I know what the doctor told you, about your heart problem," Jack stated looking deep into the emerald gaze. He watched as fear, love, hope, and sadness swirled deep in those depths of green.

"I'm sorry that I didn't tell you, but how did you find out about that?" Ennis asked.

"I'm always there with you," Jack replied.

A smile played across the blond's face at the last statement.

"Shit," Jack whispered.

"What's wrong?" Ennis asked moving closer to the dark haired man.

"Listen, it's almost time for you to leave now," Jack stated.

"But I don't want to leave you again," Ennis muttered.

"Don't worry, I will never leave you, but you have to listen to me," The dark haired man said.

A colder breeze blew around the area making the two men shiver. "What is it Jack?" Ennis asked.

"I'll be here," Jack said.

"For What?" Ennis Replied

"I'll be here waiting," Jack stated.

"Why, what are you talking about Jack?" Ennis asked

"I'll be here waiting here for you, so if you come here, you'll find me," The dark haired man stated, "I Promise."

"Jack what is that for," Ennis asked.

"Because, when someone dies, it's easier for them to find where they are supposed to be if they have something tying them down. So by me making that promise to you, you now have me as an anchor to get you through the darkness." Jack stated.

Ennis grabbed Jack around the waist and pulled him closer to his body. "Thank You, now I'm not so scared about what's going to happen to me after I die." The blond man slowly lowered his head and lightly brushed his lip across the dark haired mans'. He could feel Jack slowly wrap his arm around his neck. He slowly slid is tongue across Jacks' requesting access to the warm mouth and the warm muscle inside.

KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK

Green eyes began to flutter open. Sliding his tongue out to brush across his slightly bruised lips. Ennis slowly stood up from the floor with both shirts in his embrace.

KNOCK, KNOCK, KNOCK

"I'll be there in a minute," The blond snapped as he hung the prized possession back up by the picture of Brokeback Mountain.

Before he closed the a silent whisper left the mans lips, "Jack I Swear" He closed the door and went to see who was knocking on his door. When he opened the door he looked into the face of his daughter.

"Sorry to bother you daddy, but I was wondering if I left my sweater here?" the young woman asked.

"Yea, you did sweetheart," Ennis stated.

He walked over to the closet and got the sweater his daughter wanted.

"Here you are," her father said.

"Thanks daddy," Alma Jr. said. She gave him a quick kiss on the cheek and turned around to leave.

Before Ennis knew what he was thinking, his heart was talking and saying something for him that needed to be said.

"Alma, before you leave, do you have time to talk for a few minutes," the blond man asked.

"Yea daddy I do," the young woman stated.

She walked back into the house and sat down on the bedside while her father took the chair.

"So what is it daddy," Alma Jr. asked as she watched her father drum his fingers together in a nervous way.

"Well, I went to the doctor the other day because I was having some chest pains, and he told me that I have a heart condition, and that any time it could give out." Ennis stated.

Alma Jr. sat there and stared at her father as the news sunk in. Her green eyes began to tear up which sent wet droplets down her face. Ennis moved from the chair and pulled her into his chest.

"I'm sorry for telling you this, but I thought that you needed to know," The blond man said.

"Oh, daddy, I had no idea," she muttered between sobs.

"It will be ok," he assured her. "I promise."
