for Waco and Master Bill to join the rest of the group for the last
part of the ceremony. Waco and his slaves had no idea what was to
come. Curley turned that part of the ceremony over to the other
crew leader, Hank Morgan. Hank stood before everyone and spoke.
“For those of
you who are here for the first time, this is the last part of our
ceremony. Each year the slaves vote for the slave who they think
has worked the hardest and given his best for our Master during the
past year. It is by the judgement of his peers, one slave is
singled out for the honor of representing the rest of us slaves by
giving himself to our Master before all of us tonight. This year
that honor goes to Blake Tindell. Blake will you please come
was a young cowboy who was serving a similar sentence as Shane,— ten to
fifteen years as a slave. He completed seven of his ten years and
only had three to go before Charlie could release him to be a freeman
again. This would be his third time in seven years for this
honor. The honor also went into his permanent record as a “plus”
for his attitude and work ethic as an indentured slave. It was
not looked upon as a frivolous or insignificant mark in the
determination by the court for consideration of his release. They
took such things very seriously and were much more likely to be swayed
in his favor for any final decisions they might make.
applauded as Blake Tindell shyly walked to the front to stand along
side Hank Morgen. Hank put his arm around Blake and pulled him
“This will be
Blake’s third time to represent us with our Master, and all who have
seen him give himself before know it can git pretty intense, so—
feel free to express yourself as you see fit. Just remember to be
respectful of our Master and our brother-slave. Let me just add,
I consider myself fortunate to have Blake on my crew, and I have to say
he deserves this honor. I’m proud of him.”
with Hank by applauding. Hank pulled Blake to him in a hug,
kissed him on the cheek, and spoke, “Go to our Master, Son. Give
yourself to him for all of us. Make us proud of you.” Hank
encouraged the young man.
Blake walked to
the dais and knelt in front of Charlie. He went through the
ritual again with him, then stood to have his Master take him in his
arms and kiss him rather passionately. Charlie was still erect
from Lazarus’ attentions. The crowd of onlookers were beginning
to get aroused from watching what was going on. The two men
finally broke their kiss. Charlie spoke to Blake.
“I can’t say I
ain’t glad h’it’s you what got chosen this year, Son.” Charlie
told the young man looking into his clear blue eyes.
Master Goodnight. It was a surprise to me, but a good one.
You know how I feel about you, Master Charlie. I’m as grateful to
you as Master Daniels and Master Austin, Sir.”
“You know I feel
the same about you, Blake. You’ve been a good slave for me, and I
know you’re gonna’ make a fine freeman in three more years. I’ll
do ever’ thing I can to help you, and I know several other freemen
you’ll have in your corner.”
having confidence in me, Master. Your encouragement means a
lot. Shall I make love to your cock to begin, Master Goodnight?”
“I guess you
can’t help notice,— it’s pretty well at attention, Son. If’n it
were any harder it would go right through yore’ belly.” Charlie
laughed, “Howsomever, I think this is as much for your brother-slaves
as it is for us, so maybe we should put on a good show for ‘em.
What da’ you think?”
“I think it
would be the right thing to do, Sir. I know it certainly would
add to my pleasure, Master. It’s not like we’re novices at this,
Sir.” Blake chuckled.
“We’re like a
comfortable old pair of boots together.” Charlie smiled and
winked at him. “Let’s git to it, Son,— let’s git chu’ fucked.”
“I’m clean and
ready, Master.” Blake assured Charlie as he fell to his knees and
began making love to Charlie’s massive shaft.
kissing, licking and cleaning every inch of Charlie’s big cowboy
dick. He didn’t stop there. He began to make love to
Charlie’s low hanging balls and ran his tongue all over them.
Blake was determined to put on a first rate show for his slave-brothers
and he could tell from the sounds of the crowd just what actions were
getting the greatest reaction. The crowd of men began to move
closer until the were disbursed over a good area where no one had to
stretch to see. Ox lifted his three boys to stand them on hay
bails so they could get a better view.
Charlie and Hank
talked about whether to tell the boys about the last part of the
ceremony and decided to let them witness it for themselves without any
prior explanation. Waco was stunned, Travis was in awe, but
Rabbit was in ecstacy. All three of the boy’s dicks were standing
at attention, and their giant’s was no longer hidden by his fur
skirt. Waco reached back and grabbed him a handful of lummox dick
and smiled at him. Ox wrapped a huge arm around Waco’s middle and
pulled him back into him to lean against. The other two boys
followed suit until they were all leaning against the solid wall of
They watched as
the other men began to play with themselves. Cotton reached over
to take Hoot’s big dick and began to play with him. Hoot took
Cotton’s and reciprocated. Waco was already playing with Ox’s
huge dick and the beast had his little buddy’s in his big paw playing
with him. Travis and Rabbit were helping each other. They
continued to watch Blake as he took each of Charlie’s balls in his
mouth and rolled them around in his mouth, then they saw him open wide
and shove both of his Master’s balls in his mouth.
There was much
murmuring running through the crowd. Lazarus knew what was going
to happen from overhearing the slaves talk about the second part of the
ceremony, but he was unprepared for this display of raw, male animal
sex that was happening before him. He couldn’t remember a time in
recent history his dick had gotten so hard. Oh, yes, he
could! It was one night before he and Arlen left the Aldebaran
system. His partner made that night one he wouldn’t soon forget.
wasn’t through with his sensual show. He got between Charlie’s
legs and began to go further with his tongue quest to his Master’s
nether region. As if on cue, Blake slightly tapped Charlie’s rear
and the big cowboy moved his ass to face outward to the crowd and bent
slightly from the waist to lean over. He caught himself on the
bail of hay with his hands to steady himself.
Blake was a good
showman. Lazarus had seen porn in several galaxies, but very
little could rival the show going on before him. Blake had a
good, long, strong tongue and knew how to use it to make the best
showing of his talents. He started licking up and down his
Master’s crack with gusto, making big, bold licking movements that had
Charlie moaning with pleasure. Blake would zero in on Charlie’s
rosebud and kiss it like it was a lover’s mouth moving his head back
and forth trying to get his tongue in deeper and his mouth pressed as
tightly as he could against it. It was too much for the slaves in
the crowd and they began urging their slave-brother to new heights of
passion with quiet guttural comments.
“‘At’s a good
slave, Son. Get in there tight. French it, boy! Clean
yore’ Master’s hole for him. Clean it good, boy. ‘At’s
it! ‘At’s it! Make us proud of you, Son. Suck on your
Master’s sweet hole. Let him know how much you appreciate being
his slave and how much of an honor it is to take care of him.”
On and on the
men went and Blake didn’t seem to be in any hurry to finish
quickly. He could feel the sexual tension building in the
crowd. He could swear he even heard Hank and Curley mouthing
their encouragement. They knew Blake was enjoying his honor to
the max. He was as hard as any of the other slaves and his
uncircumcised dick was drooling all over the hay on the dais.
really enjoying Blake’s attentions. He smiled to himself and
offered his own words of encouragement to his slave. Blake
responded immediately and only increased the passion of his
actions. Charlie smiled to himself. For an avowed straight
man who was raised in the fundamentalist tradition, Blake Tindell had
come a long way. When he was first enslaved he was not naive
about what was expected of a male slave. He knew he would be
taken by his Master and his Master would expect him to pleasure him to
the best of his ability.
When any man
became a slave, regardless of his sexual orientation, he knew he would
have to give up any notion of maintaining any semblance of his former
life, save for his Master’s good favor. All slave owners had the
right to use their male slaves as they saw fit and only a very few
never used their slaves for sex. It was seen by all those in
authority and experience as a necessary tool to remind the slave of the
necessity for his total submission to his Master.
slaves, Blake Tindell notwithstanding, came to realize that once they
accepted the fact they no longer had any option but to submit and
humble themselves to the will of their master, unless their master was
a sadistic bastard, the experience was not without the possibility of
considerable pleasure and had its benefits for both. It was
stoically looked upon by most like anything else in life,— the more you
put into it, the more you got in return. Their personal pleasure
and the innate human instinct in the joy of giving of oneself
ultimately overcame their objections and readjusted their thinking
toward the act itself.
It became easier
for them to rationalize any fears, guilt or lack of acceptance, because
as a slave, with no choice in the matter, they were relieved of any
responsibility for the sex act. They were simply doing what was
expected of them to survive. Their conundrum came later when they
were released after having served their sentence. They would find
they had a craving for a male sexual partner and the experience of
male/male bonding they couldn’t find among their fellow freemen because
of the continued taboo of same sex unions; however, they could if they
bought themselves a male slave, nothing would be said about it.
Many returned to their master, especially if he was as good a man as
Charlie Goodnight, and would unashamedly beg him to consider accepting
him as his lifetime slave.
In the case of
Cotton Daniels and Hoot Austin,— they were known to be ex-slaves and
for them to bond as a couple was looked upon as a natural result of
their days as slaves together. Strangely enough, they were not
looked down upon and were tolerated quite well within their
community. While they didn’t try to hide their affection for each
other, they never tried to flaunt it either. Also, the fact that
Hoot and Cotton were two of the most respected slave trainers in the
State of Texas went a long way to masking their relationship with each
other. The ceremony they created and were now attending was like
reliving their time as slaves. They were naked, letting it all
hang out with each other and the slaves reveling in their comfort,
their unabashed passion for their memories and attraction for each
considerable attention to his Master’s ass, cock and balls, Blake
once again paid homage to Charlie’s boots. It was a signal to his
master he was ready to be mounted. Charlie helped him up and
helped him arrange himself on the horse blanket covered bails of
hay. Charlie leaned over and asked him if he was properly
lubricated. Blake assured him he was and there was no need to
stretch him. He felt he was so aroused he could take Charlie in
one entry. Charlie knew Blake’s capabilities and didn’t worry too
much about hurting him.
There was a hush
fell over the crowd as Charlie pressed the fat head of his cock at
Blake’s rosebud and moved it around to get some of his pre-come smeared
around his opening and Charlie’s cock head. Then Charlie leaned
froward and slowly sank the entire length of his fat cowboy dick into
Blake Tindell’s ass.
The crowd softly
went, “oooohhh” as if it were themselves on the receiving end of their
Master’s big cowboy dick. Charlie waited for Blake to get
comfortable and his ass to stop its spasms. He leaned over and
gently offered to kiss his partner. Blake didn’t refuse his
Master’s affection and opened to him like he had just done with his
ass. They were still bound in a kiss as Charlie started slowly
moving in and out of Blake with short, sure strokes. Blake moaned
and groaned deeply in his throat.
Son?” Charlie asked his slave.
Master Charlie,— pert-damn fantastic. God, you feel good,
Sir. We won’t have no problem giving ‘em a good show. Make
it a good one, Master. I’ll stick with you all the way, Sir.”
“You always do,
Blake. I can’t never fault you on pleasure’n yore’ Master,
Son. You always put your best into it and that makes it good for
both of us. I want you to know how much I appreciate yore’
attitude and willingness to please you bring to me,— not only here, but
in my bed as well.”
Master Charlie. Take all you want, Sir. ‘At’s what I’m here
for and that’s why they voted me this honor.”
Charlie set in
to fuck Blake. Waco and his posse’s mouths were hanging
open. There was all sorts of comments going around from brain to
brain. Lazarus couldn’t help overhear and chuckled to himself
that the boys were right on in their description of their excitement.
fuck! I know my old man’s good looking and sexy, but it jes’
never occurred to me what a sex machine he is. Is this affecting
you men the same’s it is me?” >>
<< Look at
me? What da’ you think, Master Waco? >> Travis showed him
his erection. Rabbit just turned to him with the biggest boner of
his life and grinned. Even old Ox was standing at attention.
ya’ll smell the sex in the air? These men are giving off as much
sexual smells and energy as my dad and Blake are. It reminds me
of when we breed the horses, they all get worked up into a sexual
lather and come in their Wranglers. >> Lazarus heard Waco
laugh to himself.
Wow! I had no idea yore’ daddy was such a stud, young Master.
>> Lazarus sent to Waco and smiled as he pulled on his
eleven and a half incher. << I’m gonna’ put my name in that box
in the bunkhouse first thing in the morning. >> he smiled
and winked at Waco.
kinda makes me wish’t I could, too, Mr. Long, but you know how folks
feel about that sort of thing. >> Waco lamented.
it’s a shame, but you gotta’ play with the cards you’re dealt,
Son. Later, when you come of age, things might change for
you. You never know. Have faith. In the meantime, you
got enough on yore’ plate to deal with. >>
Mr. Long,— I got me some’um to look forward to tonight.>>
Waco smiled and winked at Rabbit. Rabbit blushed and shuffled his
thirty minutes of good, solid fucking on Charlie’s part and Blake
working his ass to meet his master’s thrust like a good cutting horse
working a maverick steer, Charlie leaned over and groaned.
“I can’t hold it
much longer, Son,— I’m about to blow my wad up yore’ ass.”
“Oh, God, fuck
me, Master! Shoot chore’ load up yore’ slaves ass, Sir.
Take us on home, Master Goodnight! Ride my ass harder, Sir, make
it a good one. I’m with ya’ all the way!”
Charlie needed to hear from Blake. He knew he was ready to spew
forth his load as well. Charlie fucked Blake hard and swift as he
arched his back to unload his all into his cowboy slave. Blake
hit his almost at the same time and his come shot way over his head on
the first volley, but the second and third landed on his face and in
Blake Tindell weren’t the only cowboys to come. There were grunts
and groans and several dropped down on their knees to take their
buddy’s come. The air was permeated with the smell of male sexual
pheromones and fresh cowboy come. It was like the lingering odor
of gunpowder on the forth of July after the grand finale of a
firework’s show. Blake and Charlie were spent.
collapsed on top of Blake and began to lick his come from his face and
steal a kiss or two. Blake locked his cowboy boots behind
Charlie’s waist like he was going to try to hold his Master inside him
as long as possible. Charlie didn’t have any plans to go anywhere
soon. He was reveling in the afterglow of his union with one of
his finest slaves and sharing something wonderful, far too few men get
to experience in their lifetimes. Charlie could only feel sorry
for those men who didn’t know the passion and complete release good sex
with another man could bring. Charlie was not one to qualify that
All the men felt
the urge to come forth and complement the two men on their coupling for
the evening. There were some funny comments made as well. It was
a time when everyone let their hair down and could relate with each
other as men bound by a common purpose. They were slaves to a
good man who took care of them and cared about each one. Charlie
and his dad had proved it to them so many times there was no doubt in
their minds. They all allowed this year’s slave ceremony was one
of the best. They wished their Master many more.
Waco had no
compunction about running up to his dad in the nude, giving him a hug
and a kiss.
“Damn, Dad,— I
don’t know if’n I’s ready for this or not.” he said quietly to
“Too much of a
shock for you, Son?” Charlie asked concerned.
“No,— not that,
Dad. I’s jes’ gonna’ have me a hard time being around you when
we’re nude together. I’ll be think’n on what I’m missing out on.”
“You know what I
told you in the truck coming home with Ox. When you reach
eighteen we’ll figure out something. In the meantime, you got
enough to take care of. You got Chief to take care of tonight,
and I expect you to take care of him right. I’m count’n on you to
make my little buddy forgit all about that Tennent boy.” Charlie
smiled at him.
“I think I can
do that, Dad. I know you’ve grown pert-damn fond of the Chief.”
“I ain’t the
only one. Yore’ big uncle thinks Chief is a pretty fine piece of
slave flesh. He’s glad you’re his master.”
That night Waco
and his posse retired to their rooms with one extra. Waco pulled
on his Wranglers and a shirt to walk out to Ms. Wallace’s house to get
his little brother. He was amused to find Hank was already there
fully dressed. It was obvious to Waco Hank and Ida were going to
make the best of JR spending the night in the big house. Ida was
going to get to ride that big slave-cowboy dick of Hank’s. Waco
couldn’t say he was just a bit jealous. They both admonished JR
to be good and mind his big brother. JR promised faithfully he
would as he gave them a hug and a quick kiss.
He followed Waco
up to the house and was all questions about the slave ceremony and
wanted to know about it. Waco didn’t want to lie to him so he
just told him there were things he and his men were sworn to secrecy
about and he could tell. In a couple of years he would come of
age and he could attend if’n the slaves voted for him to. Because
JR was so close to Hank Morgan it was a pretty sure bet he’d be voted
in. Waco assured him he wouldn’t be bored. It was one of
the most interesting and exciting ceremonies Waco ever attended.
back at Waco’s rooms and Waco instructed his men to all remain naked
except for Ox in his boots and harness. JR was stunned to see
everyone without their clothes on and especially their huge lummox in
his new outfit. He ran first to Ox who picked him up and cradled
him in his arms.
“Ox, you look so
handsome in your new outfit. I’ll bet you were the center of
attention at the ceremony.” JR declared.
“He was close to
it, little brother.” Waco said as Rabbit was removing his
Master’s boots, and helped him off with his Wranglers. Waco was
once again nude. “Come on, little brother, no clothes allowed
tonight with the big boys. You gotta’ git undressed.
Slaves, help my little brother with his clothes.” Waco winked and
ordered Rabbit and Travis. They helped him off with his boots and
clothes and folded them neatly on a chair. JR ran up to Waco and
threw his arms around him and hugged him.
letting me come stay with you guys tonight, brother. It means a
lot to me.”
fun. Do you need to shower or brush yore’ teeth?”
“Naw, I done all
that while I’s waiting for the slave ceremony to be over.”
We’ll git chu’ settled down with Ox and Travis. Rabbit and me got
us some business to take care of for a while, but we’ll be back in here
with you after a little bit. Okay?”
“Sure, Waco, I’m
jes’ glad to be here. You think Ox would let me have some more of
Waco smiled and
winked at Rabbit.
“I done already
talked with him about it, and he says you can have all you want.
You been feeling better?”
Any other time, like tonight, I’d be so excited I’d have a headache by
now. I don’t feel nothing now except happy and glad I’m here with
glad to have you here with us, little brother. Come on, you can
help us get our lummox undressed.”
do I have to? >> Ox sounded like a little kid and got the
three boys laughing.
“Naw, you don’t
have to for a while. Let me spread an old blanket over the bed
so’s you won’t get the sheets messed up.” Waco got an old blanket and
the boys helped him spread it over the huge bed. It just barely
everyone settled down and he was right. JR was out like a light
in about ten minutes flat. Waco gave Travis a hug and a
kiss. He thanked him for showing Rabbit how to clean
himself. He motioned goodbye to his lummox and went off to his
other room through the new door. He closed and latched it behind
primed and ready for him. Waco ordered Rabbit not to come while
watching his dad fuck Blake Tindell. Rabbit groaned, but he
smiled at Waco. He knew why his master didn’t want him to shoot
<< If I
can hold back,— you can hold back, my slave. >> Waco smiled at
Rabbit, << Besides, Chief , I wanna’ do the same thing to you
your other Master’s doing to that good looking slave up there on that
bail of hay. I’m gonna’ fuck yore’ brains out tonight.
>> Waco smiled and winked at Rabbit. Ox overheard his
comment to Rabbit and chuckled. Rabbit blushed.
you’s half as good as yore’ daddy, Master Waco, I’ll be a happy slave.
be a happy slave, I promise you, Chief. Best I ever had, and he
jes’ keeps git’n better. >> Travis added his two cents worth.
Travis? How many you had? >> Rabbit teased.
good teachers,— ma’ dad and Master Gibbons. >>
Wow! I guess you would know, at that. I’d be proud to share
a bed with either one a’ them men. >>
Waco wasn’t a
man for many words. He sat to work to his task at hand. He
started making love to his slave without delay. He was so horny
after watching his dad’s display, and he knew Rabbit had to be.
Rabbit was responding to his master like he had seen Blake
earlier. They were heavy into it when there came a quiet knock at
it?” Waco asked quietly.
“It’s jes’ me,
Son.” he heard his dad’s voice.
Dad.” Waco bid him enter.
into the room still in his cowboy outfit naked beneath his chaps.
He stood at the door and looked longingly at the two young men holding
each other in an embrace. They didn’t try to hide their love
making from him. It would’ve never crossed either one’s mind.
I’d check on you two to see if ever’ things all right with you.”
Waco laughed and
sent a thought to Rabbit. << Should we invite him to watch,
Chief? Would you feel funny? >>
hell, no, Master Waco. Good idea! Do it, Sir! It
would be perfect for me. I’ll git to show Master Charlie what I
can do. >> Waco heard a calculated laugh from his slave.
Dad,— thanks for checking on us. I’m just about to take care of
my slave here,— if’n ya’ ain’t too tired or sleepy, pull up a chair.”
“Humm,— you men
wouldn’t be bothered by me watching?”
figure if we done watched you tonight, you got a right to watch us,
if’n you’s a mind to.”
“Don’t mind if I
do, men. Lemme’ grab a beer from the fridge, and I’ll be right
Waco laughed as
his dad closed the door behind him.
“After all that
excitement, he must be wide awake and won’t settle down for a
while. Maybe it would relax him to watch us.”
“All I can think
about is what a turn on it will be to have him watch me git fucked by
you, Master Waco. It will be jack-off material for me for
years. I’ll remember this night when I’m old an gray. How
lucky can one slave boy git? There has to be a Great Spirit.”
Rabbit got Waco
laughing. Waco tickled Rabbit and had him rolling around on the
bed laughing when Charlie returned. He smiled at the boys and
pulled up an old wooden rocking chair not far from the bed. He
held his beer in his left hand and began to stroke his big dick with
his right hand. Waco reached under his night stand next to his
bed and threw his dad a hand towel.
Son. ‘At jes’ might come in handy.” he smiled and draped it
over the arm of his chair.
ado, Waco threw Rabbit’s legs over his head and ordered him to hold
them for him. He started fingering Rabbit’s hole and felt he was
already well lubricated. Waco reached to his night stand again
and retrieved a small jar of lubricant and greased his big cock up
good. He played with Rabbit’s hole until he had Rabbit begging to
feel his big dick up his ass. Waco was gentle with Rabbit but he
was also firm and sure with his entry. Obviously, the Tennent boy
was rough with Rabbit and having Waco take him, even as large as Waco
was by comparison, was a piece of cake.
Master Waco. You feel so damn good inside me. I don’t know
how long I can hold out.”
“You better hold
out long enough to gimme’ a good fuck, slave. I know you well
enough by now, you put chore’ mind to it, you can do it.”
Waco began to
slowly fuck Rabbit and fucked him like a loving Master should fuck his
good and worthy slave. Rabbit was responding to his every stroke
with no problem. Charlie was impressed with his boy and even more
impressed with his sometime bed buddy. He couldn’t believe his
Chief was such an experienced little slave. It made Charlie began
to think when Rabbit got older he was going to be one hell of a partner.
<< This is
so good, Chief. Do you wanna’ feel what I’m feel’n right now?
da’ ya’ mean, Master Waco? >>
<< I can
link our minds through Ox’s. I asked him earlier if he would, and
he agreed. He would love to share our lovemaking anyway, like my
dad. All I have to do is link with him, you link with him and you
git to feel what I’m feeling with my dick inside you, and I git to feel
what my dick feels like inside you. That didn’t come out right,
but you know what I mean. >>
yes, I do! I git to feel what it feels like for you to be fuck’n
my ass,— right? >>
right, Chief! >>
gotta’ try that,— Ox, can you hear us? >> Rabbit projected.
Sir, Chief. I can hear both of you. I can feel both
of you. You wanna’ switch for a minute. >>
do it, Lummy. >> Waco urged his giant lummox.
could feel Waco’s dick and how it felt for his Master fuck’n his ass
with long, deep powerful strokes. Waco could feel his huge dick
in Rabbit’s ass like he was getting fucked by his own dick. It
was too sensual. He could move his dick to get the best feeling
for both of them. Waco found the exact spot that would send him
around the bend every time his dick hit it. It took an already
sensual, sexual experience and multiplied it by two. They became
conjoined in the act. There was no longer a fuckor or fuckee,
their young, virile bodies were as one sharing in both aspects of the
sexual act. The young men began to hyperventilate from the
sensuality of the experience. Charlie began to be
concerned. He’d never seen two men fucking with such unbridled
passion, and they were only boys,— well past puberty but not fully
grown. He was afraid Waco was getting too carried away and might
hurt his smaller partner.
on, men? Are you two all right?”
right, Master Charlie.” Rabbit replied breathlessly gasping for
air, “We just done switched places with Ox’s help. I was in
Master Waco’s head fucking my ass, and he was in my mind feeling how it
was to get fucked by his big cowboy dick. It’s fuck’n
unbelievable, Master Charlie. Ain’t never felt me nothing so
wonderful in my life. Oh, God, does it feel good!” Rabbit
to himself. There had been few dull moments since Waco’s
birthday. Every day was bringing some new, small revelation to
Charlie he was unprepared for. He wanted to break out laughing at
the boys, but they were obviously lost in their ecstasy of the
moment. They were dead serious. Certainly as serious as he
and Blake had been earlier. Charlie could only wonder how it must
feel to them.
“Oh, Lord, Dad,—
h’it’s like I’m fuck’n myself. I can fuck me just the way it
feels the best for us. Rabbit can help me and urge me to fuck him
even better. It’s fantastic and the best part is, our wonderful
beast gits to feel what we’re feeling.”
“Damn, I wish I
could.” Lamented Charlie playing with himself.
Dad. Sit back and relax. Ox will link us with you. He
can do it. Can’t you, Lummy?”
Master Waco. >> Charlie heard in his head clear as day.
“Oh, my God,
this is unbelievable. I can feel it. I can feel both of
you. This is too much. Go on, Son,— go for it,— fuck the
Chief! Fuck him good. Show your dad and your wonderful
beast what the two of you can do. Thank you, Ox,— I needed this.”
welcome, Master Charlie,— glad to be of service. >>
Waco really got
into fucking Rabbit and Rabbit was putting his all into it. They
wanted to be as good as Charlie and Blake were earlier in the
evening. Waco fucked and fucked Rabbit until he couldn’t hold
back any longer. He felt his dad and his wonderful lummox
surrounding his spirit as they were surrounding Rabbit’s in their
moment of triumph. The three men and their lummox shot their
loads together in one hell of a gut wrenching climax. Charlie
didn’t groan as much when he shot his load into Blake Tindell.
He never felt anything so sensual and emotionally draining as
what he just experienced with his son, his Indian Chief and their
lummox. No one would believe him if he tried to describe it to
them. No,— one person might. Lazarus Long. Charlie
didn’t know why but just had the feeling if anyone might understand, he
sprawled out like a limp dishrag over the rocking chair. He
couldn’t move he was so spent. He didn’t know if he could clean
himself, get up and make it to his room. Waco and Rabbit was
still making gentle love in the afterglow of their love making.
Rabbit looked over at his hero and saw that he was wasted.
might need our attention, Master Waco. He looks a mite
tuckered.” he chuckled.
idea, Chief. You think’n the same thing I’m think’n? >>

boots. Charlie didn’t try to stop them and allowed the boys to
clean him up. When they had most of him cleaned Waco dispatched

said softly to Waco.
Dad? We ain’t never touched each other. My enjoying eating

believe you if’n you’s to tell ‘em yore’ boy and his slave allowed you
into their minds to experience their private world of sex? You
weren’t a participant. You were an observer who wanted to make
sure your son wasn’t doing it wrong or hurting his slave. That’s
your right as a slave owner to make damn sure your livestock is being
cared for properly. How can you do that unless you observe your
son and his handling abilities?”
“Have you ever
given thought to becoming a lawyer, Son?” Charlie smiled at him
“Naw, Sir, all I
wanna’ be is a fine man and a good cowboy like my dad.”
“God, I love

little more than might have been socially called for with Charlie but
Waco and his dad shared a good smile between them about it. The
boys helped Charlie off with his boots and chaps and hung them over the

you don’t mind?”
“You wanna’ take

crawled into bed and Rabbit went to sleep with a handful of Goodnight

Waco accomplished what his dad asked of him. He made their Chief

memory was ancient history.

It always seemed
to Charlie, after the slave ceremony on his birthday, everything seemed
to go along great for the rest of the summer. Things always ran
fairly smoothly at both Goodnight ranches, but the summers were
generally hot and humid and there was a general slow down in
work. It didn’t bother Charlie or Angus because there just wasn’t
that much to do during the hot weather anyway. Their busiest
times were in the fall and early spring. By the time the hot,
humid, unbearable weather of late June, July and August rolled around,
things slowed down to a comfortable crawl.
Angus worked their men on tropical hours during the dog days of West
Texas summers. The crew leaders would get the men up a couple of
hours earlier in the mornings and work them until eleven, then they
would knock off, have their lunch and stay out of the heat for the rest
of the day. After chores were done, they had the evening off to
relax and pursue other interest.
a small garden. When others agreed to help, it grew larger and more
ambitious over the years and yielded considerable produce to supplement
their diet and added fresh vegetables to Charlie and his family’s
table. Charlie bought seeds for them every spring and the slaves
worked hard at their garden. It seemed to give them a sense of
accomplishment for their benefit as well as for their master.
weekend was the long weekend of the fourth of July. The town held
a two day rodeo starting Friday the third and ending on Saturday the
fourth. The afternoon of the fourth, after the rodeo, Charlie and
his slaves were invited to Angus Goodnight’s ranch for afternoon
festivities and more rodeoing. Only a couple of men and one crew
leader were required to stay behind to watch Charlie’s ranch.
Since Curley went the previous year, he remained at the ranch with
three of his men who also attended the year before.
At the rodeo
there was no discrimination between slaves and freemen when it came to
participation. Cowboys were cowboys as far as the town fathers
were concerned. They decided that a long time ago when slavery
was reintroduced. The slave cowboys made up nearly half the
participants; however, they had to pay an entry fee like any other
cowboy. They could get their master to pay their entry fee, but
he would get all their winnings, as slaves weren’t allowed to have
Some owners held
accounts for indentured slaves. If they won, their master would
get his entry fee back, but the slave’s winnings would be held in trust
for them until they finished their sentence. So there would be a
larger chance for the slaves to enter, the city fathers held fund
raisers during the year to raise money to cover a slave’s entry fees
for an event of his choice who couldn’t get his master to stake
him. Of course, if he lost it wouldn’t be held against
Shane won the
bull riding competition both days and he and his master placed third
overall in the team roping competition. Hank Morgan felt brave
and placed third in the bull riding event. Ida Wallace and JR
were yelling for him to win. Angus was good to his word and
staked Lazarus in three events; saddle bronc riding, calf roping and
the team roping event.
easily won the calf roping competition and had no problems with either
bronc he drew to ride. He won both events. Angus gave
Lazarus the money for both him and his little brother’s entry fees in
the team roping event. Charlie and Lazarus had little trouble
winning both days. Cotton Daniels and Hoot Austin placed second,
but they decided since their hot shot roper slave was still in training
they wouldn’t let him ride in this rodeo. They didn’t even allow
him to come to the rodeo.
Charlie gladly paid Angus his money back for their entry fees.
Lazarus was happy because now he had some money in his pocket. He
was worried he might have to dip into either his treasure trove of
precious stones or his several hundred thousand pounds of pure gold
bullion. He figured he might have a hard time explaining how or
were he came by such wealth. How would a cowboy explain owing a
perfect red diamond the size of a baseball? Few worlds put much
stock in rare metals or stones. Most looked upon them as little
more than attractive bits of nature. Lazarus had enough
forethought to stop by his favorite junk dealer on Praddigan Prime
where he loaded one complete bay of the ‘Bandersnatch’ with treasures
by Earth standards that would surpass the combined treasures of King
Solomon and the all the crown heads of Europe. All of it bought
for a good meal and a bottle of eight hundred year old Tranya. (Tranya
only begins to develop it’s distinctive flavor after five hundred
years. Galactic wars have been fought over a single bottle.)
It was Ox’s
first rodeo. The boys decked him out in his new outfit and Waco
even had a Western hat company make him a special cowboy hat to fit his
huge head. He looked fine; although some rude wag describe him as
looking like a hairy version of the flying nun. The sheriff
wouldn’t hear of Waco and his slaves sitting anywhere else but
his private box. It was a wonderful, fun filled couple of days
At the picnic
that afternoon, Lazarus was the hero of the day. He won more
events than any other cowboy, and he had an adoring crowd of young
cowboys who wanted to be around him and Charlie. They wanted him
and Charlie to give them tips to improve their rodeo skills.
Angus was talking with Charlie and Bill Birdsall at the party.
“I don’t mean to
tell you yore’ business, little brother, but if’n I was a man of strong
language, I’d say you was a fool if’n you ain’t already considered
making that man the foreman of your ranch.” Angus dropped his
huge arm around Charlie.
“I agree, Mr.
Goodnight.” Bill Birdsall confirmed Angus’ comment, “I had my
doubts about him until I watched him at the slave ceremony last week
and saw him win three events at the rodeo today. No one can say
he ain’t no cowboy. He certainly can do anything any of your
hands can do. I think he’s proven himself to everyone in this
community. I’ve hear’d talk among several of the other ranchers
they’s think’n on offer’n him a job as their foreman.”
Well, I guess I’m jes’ gonna’ have to do that. My crew
leaders come to me after the slave ceremony and told me the same
thing. They thought I needed help, and they couldn’t think of a
better man for the job than Lazarus Long. He’s worked right along
side of my slaves for over a month and never once complained.
He’s never taken a noon meal in the ranch house. He eats slave
chow and biscuits with the rest of the hands. Curley and Hank
tell me he does anything they ask him to do without complaint and he
does it right the first time. They don’t never have to worry when
they give him and the men he works with a job to do. I was gonna’
sit down with him when we eat and ask him if he wants the job.”
“Good for you,
little brother! I have a good feel’n about him. I wish’t
he’d a’ brought his companions along today, but he told me they wasn’t
much on parties.”
right. They do a considerable amount around the ranch without
being asked. He told me they’d earn their keep and they
have. Ping is forever helping the boys with something and Pong is
good to help out the slaves when they need something heavy
lifted. He’s great at lifting a steer in the air so’s it can’t go
nowhere while the cowboys inspect it or give it medication. He
beats a cut’n horse all to hell.” Charlie and the men shared a
stood and gave a blessing of thanks, everyone lined up for food.
Charlie purposely got in line behind Shane, Bill Birdsall and
Lazarus. When they got their food Charlie followed them to a
picnic table and sat with them to eat. Conversation was light
until Master Bill asked Lazarus if he’d be interested in seeing the
book and old documents they had. Charlie hadn’t heard anything
about any documents, but he didn’t ask any question. He just
indeed, like to see them if you care to show them to me. Would
you mind if our young Master Waco looked at them with me?”
“Not at all,
Sir.” smiled Master Bill, we sort of expected you’d like him to
take a look at them with you.”
“I don’t know
what you’re talking about, but why would you want my son to look at
them?” Charlie asked Lazarus.
“He knew what
the tattoos on my arm and his lummox’s arm meant without being
told. I think he may have some greater communication with the
ancient voices of the winds of consciousness. I think they tell
him things,— things he doesn’t even understand yet.”
“To be honest
with you, I’ve been worried about something like that. Even when
he was younger he would tell me something was going to happen, and it
always would. He couldn’t tell me how he knew other than he
sometimes heard voices at night. Sometimes they come to him in
his sleep. I never thought much about it. Thought it was
probably the overworked imagination of a child, until,— he started
talk’n with his pony. I’m still git’n used to that.”
“How have you
felt since my boy’s been here, Mr. Goodnight?” Lazarus asked
taking a bite of his barbecue.
“Like I have
absolutely nothing to worry about. Like everyone in our household
is being looked after and protected. At the rodeo today, I never
had to worry about the boys. All I had to do was look for the
tallest, biggest hombre in the crowd and there they were. He’s
like a mother hen with them boys.”
“The same voices
he’s hearing sent Ox to him and you. I think they might be able
to tell him the meaning of the documents Shane found. It wasn’t
totally by accident your little brother found the book and those
papers. He’s being directed as well as yore’ boy, Mr. Goodnight.”
conversations I git the idea you plan on being around for a while,
Lazarus,— is that right?”
“Yes, Sir, Mr.
Goodnight,— I plan on being here for a decade or more.”
“I’d like to
offer you the job as my ranch foreman if’n you think you and yore’
companions would like to stay on at the ranch.” Charlie looked at
Lazarus. He smiled.
“I’d be proud
and honored to work for you, Mr. Goodnight.” Lazarus stuck out
his hand and the two men shook on it. Bill and Shane were all
ask what it pays?”
after work’n for you for a month, I know you well enough to know you’ll
pay me a fair wage for a good days work. I ain’t worried none
“Spoken like a
true cowboy, Mr. Long. Don’t you think it’s time you dropped the
‘Mr. Goodnight’ and call me ‘Charlie.’”
“When we’re in
private, I’d be downright honored to call you Charlie, Sir, but as your
employee, when we’re in public, like today, and in front of your
slaves, I’d prefer to call you ‘Mr. Goodnight.’”
“You’re an old
school cowboy, Lazarus. I have to admire that in a man. So
be it. I want you to be comfortable. Will it embarrass you
if I make an announcement about our agreement.”
“Naw, Sir, not
and asked for everyone’s attention.
“I’d like to
make an announcement. As most of you know, Mr. Lazarus Long has
been working for me on my ranch for a little over a month. When
he came to us he’d lost his pony and asked for a place to stay for him
and his companions. He said they were willing to work for their
keep. They have been good to their word and kept their part of
the bargain. I’ve been pleased with their work and
attitudes. Therefore, with several folks recommendations,
including my slave crew leaders, I jes’ offer him the job as foreman
for my ranch, and I’m happy to say, he accepted. I’m pleased and
proud to have him work for me.”
There was a
cheer went up from everyone and much applause. Many came over to
shake both men’s hand and congratulate Lazarus. Angus wouldn’t
settle for a handshake and had to hug and kiss each one. He was
happy for his brother and a man he had quickly come to admire.
Waco and his posse were thrilled. They all liked Lazarus.
After things settled down and the men were sitting around the table
eating ice cold watermelon for desert, Lazarus turned to Charlie and
sort of bonds two cowboys together,— don’t it, Mr. Goodnight?”
that. To win you have to almost have an unspoken communication
with yore’ partner and that’s usually only achieved after years of
roping together; however, I notice the first time we tossed a rope
together there was something more there than jes’ rope’n a steer.”
that, Sir. Few men I’ve roped with I felt that bond with.
You and that new slave of Mr. Austin and Daniels, he was a natural when
it comes to toss’n a rope. Good thing Mr. Austin didn’t bring him
to the rodeo to rope with him, we might not a’ won.” Lazarus
“I have a feel’n
we would a’ won anyway, Mr. Long.” Charlie smiled at him.
gonna’ be working for you on a full-time basis and you’re now my
employer,— I think it’s time you know all about me, Mr. Goodnight.”
Shane and Master
Bill’s ears perked up.
“I told you on
the way back from go’n to git your things, I wouldn’t ask you no more
questions.” Charlie told him.
“I know, and I’m
grateful for it. You gimme’ the time I needed, but I think it’s
time you and me took another trip out there to the blue mountains and
stayed the night.”
“I’d give my
left nut to tag along, Mr. Long.” allowed Master Bill laughing,
“I’d have my slave snip it off and bring it along in a small brown
paper bag if’n you like, Sir.”
and Charlie looked at Bill like he was a looney.
‘At won’t be
necessary, Son. You kin keep your testicle; however, I ain’t
say’n the gesture ain’t appreciated.” Lazarus grinned at
him. “If’n you and yore’ slave can git your employer’s permission
to travel back over with us and stay through Sunday evening, I’d be
right proud to have you join us. Is that all right with you, Mr.
“Of course it
is. Is it necessary we camp out for you to tell me about

is. Remember the tractor in the granite rock the boys heard?”
“Yeah, but I
didn’t hear nothing.”

rock, and you wouldn’t understand less’n I’s to show you.”
mysterious. Do you men know what he’s talk’n about?”
Charlie asked Shane and Bill.
Goodnight, and he’s right. It probably would be best if’n he’s to
show you.” Master Bill insisted.
“Would you like
to look at the papers my Master has, Master Long?” Shane asked
“Yes, I would,
Son. Lemme’ holler at Waco.” Lazarus stood and
hollered to Waco to join them. Waco came over followed by his
lummox and two slaves. Where one went, they all went. “I
want you and Ox to take a look at something with me if you will, young
master. Remember how you knew about me and Ox’s tattoos?”
“Yes, Sir, but I
don’t know how I know.”
none. All I want you to do it take a look at some papers with me.”
Bill led the men
to his bunkhouse which was apart from the slave quarters. It was
neat and clean with everything in its place. All tack was
cleaned, oiled and hanging on in its proper place. There was no
doubt in Lazarus’ mind Shane took good care of his master. All
Bill’s boots were cleaned and polished to a high sheen and lined up
against a far wall with several pair of chaps and spurs hanging on
nails for accent. It was a cowboy’s room and reeked of male
masculinity and sexual pheromones.
Bill showed him
the book and Lazarus thumbed through it quickly.
it survived. There was such a backlash to my family, all
information and books were confiscated and destroyed. Someone had
enough forethought to hide this copy.”
Lazarus?” asked Charlie.
“Yes, Sir, Mr.
Goodnight,— this book is about me and my family, but for the sake of
time, let me explain all that to you this evening. Since Master
Bill and his slave have already read it, they already know the
particulars. They would probably agree it would be best to hear
it all at once.”
“I agree,— you
slave?” Master Bill asked Shane.
“I agree, Master
Charlie.” Shane replied.
“Okay,— this is
getting more mysterious as it goes along.”
“I have a
feeling I know what it’s all about.” Waco volunteered.
do, young man; however, let’s don’t spoil it for your dad.”
“Here’s the two
large parchments my slave found rolled up in the metal box along with
the book.” Bill said as he handed Lazarus the two scrolls.
carefully unrolled them and tried to flatten them enough they wouldn’t
return to their rolled position. They looked like they were
handmade and embossed with gold-leaf symbols of some kind.
Lazarus shook his head.
“I have no idea
what these are or what they’re about. They’re as much a mystery
to me as you men.” Waco was looking over Lazarus’ shoulder.
“Can you tell anything about them, Son?” Lazarus deferred to Waco.
“Only one line
not in gold at the bottom of the second page. I know what it
says, but it’s probably not important.”
“What does it
say, Son?” Lazarus asked him.
“It says, ‘The
reader must hold me.’”
“Then it must
not be intended for me or these men. It’s intended for one or a
select few. Here,— you hold them and see what happens.”
Lazarus moved aside and let Waco have the papers.
Waco took the
scrolls from Lazarus and suddenly a light appeared above the first
page. The gold figures or hieroglyphics began to slowly lift from
the first page and float above the parchment. Waco moved the
first page aside and the men watched as the gold print on the second
page rose from its page. The symbols were all hanging in midair.
slowly began to move, rearrange themselves and hung in the air like a
new scroll without parchment. It was obvious to all who observed,
the symbols were now in the proper order to make sense. Each
letter or figure took on a luminescence of his own like the gold was
burning from within with a cold fire. It was a flame that gave
off no heat; however, there was no doubting it was of an important and
shit!” Breathed Waco to himself. Lazarus barely heard the
“You know what
it says, Son?” Lazarus asked quietly, not wanting to spook him.
h’it’s in four parts,— but I’m suppose to keep most of it to myself
until my eighteenth birthday. I don’t understand the last part.”
“Can you tell us
about it?” Lazarus questioned Waco.
“Yes, Sir, it
says for you to show us the tractor in the rock, and what you show one
brother, you must show three.”
The men laughed.
“Not to worry,
Son,— we know what it means. Looks like we’ll have four more,
maybe five, to spend the night with us in the desert, gentlemen.”
Lazarus laughed. With that the gold letters were gone and
reappeared on the parchment in their original position.
said the boys in unison.
“Are you all
right, Son?” Charlie asked with some concern for his boy.
Dad. I don’t know any more than you do right now about what’s
going on, but I know some pretty miraculous things are gonna’ happen in
the next several years. At least we’ll know about them
beforehand. In the meantime, I think Mr. Long has some important
things to tell us.”
“I do, but
they’ll have to wait ‘til this evening. Since your younger
brother and his Master will be going camping with us, Mr. Goodnight,
would you like to invite your older brother to come along? Since
we have this many already,— one more ain’t gonna’ be no problem.
I believe he is the third brother.”
“What do you
think, Son?” Charlie asked Waco.
“I agree with
Mr. Long. Uncle Angus is the third brother. Can I invite
him, Dad? I’ll tell him I’d like for him to come along, but I’d
appreciate him bringing my uncle and his master if’n he sees fit.”
“That would be
the appropriate way to handle it. While he probably wouldn’t have
any problem with Master Bill and Shane coming, it’s best to allow him
to be magnanimous. My brother’s good at that.” Charlie
smiled and winked at Shane. Shane hung his head and
“I agree with
Mr. Goodnight, Waco, it would be the best way to handle it.
Besides, between you and your men, you can get that old man to do
anything you want. ” said Bill, laughing and everyone agreed with him.
The men left
Master Bill’s quarters. Shane asked him to give the book to
his brother Charlie so he might read it if he was interested.
Charlie assured him he was and would return it.
talked about and decided to give it and the papers to Mr. Long.”
said Master Bill.
“Thanks, men,— I
appreciate that. I have a feeling those documents have more to
tell us. They might have the capability of revealing more than
what Waco understood on first reading. We’ll see. You may
keep the book, if you like. I doubt anyone would understand what
or who it was about. Maybe Master Angus might like to read it
after Master Charlie gits through with it.”
Angus saw the
men leaving Bill’s small bunkhouse and couldn’t help be curious.
Waco and his posse ran to him, intercepted him and led him to one of he
picnic tables. The other men joined him.
“Uncle Angus, me
and my men and ma’dad wanna’ invite you to come over to our place after
yore’ party is over. We’re gonna’ ride out into the desert
to the base of the blue mountains with Mr. Long and camp out overnight
to celebrate him becoming our ranch foreman. We’d like you to
bring along yore’ ranch foreman and his slave, if’n you’s a mind
to. I know I’d personally appreciate it. Tomorrow’s Sunday
and ya’ll could be back here by Sunday afternoon, easy. We’re
gonna’ stick around to help you and my cousins clean up the place.”
Angus mused like
he was mulling it over in his mind.
“Do I git to
share my bedroll with the Chief?” Angus grinned and winked at
“I think I could
talk him into it, Sir. What da’ ya’ think, Chief?” Waco
laughed as he asked Rabbit.
It would be an honor, Master Angus.” he said a little too
enthusiastically. All the men laughed.
have to hang around after the party. My slaves can take care of
clean up. My boys can see to that. Sure, we’d be happy to
join you. Sounds like fun. Should we bring anything?”
“Naw, Sir, Mr.
Angus, we got ever’ thing covered.”
Master Bill and his slave will follow you over.”
Angus,— It wouldn’t be the same without you there.”
“You shore’ know
the right words to say, young’un.” Angus told Waco.
when they come from the heart, Sir.” Waco smiled at him.
Bill was right, he could get Angus to do anything he wanted, but Waco
would never think about taking advantage of his bond with his
uncle. He loved him too much for that.
* * * * * * *
fireworks, people started leaving the party. Angus was there with
Charlie bidding goodbye to all the folks. They said their
goodbyes to their younger brothers and their families. Angus
looked at Charlie and they grinned after they left. Not a word
was spoken, but they knew what was in each others’ hearts. Their
younger brothers were in another world apart from them. It was as
if it were only the three of them, Angus, Charlie and Shane.
While Charlie knew Angus had to put on a hard front for their little
brother, he knew what was in the big man’s heart. He knew how
much Angus loved and cherished their baby brother.
The men got
their horses saddled up. Charlie gave last minute instructions to
his crew leaders for the next day. It was to be a day of rest and
relaxation for the slaves and beyond cooking for herself and Hank, Ida
had the day off. Of course when JR got wind of the trip into the
desert he begged Charlie to let him go along. Charlie looked at
Waco who smiled and nodded his head.
man, but I’m putting yore’ big brother in charge of you. You
promise to do as he says?”
“You know I
will, Sir. I promise.” Charlie smiled and told him to run
grab his bedroll. JR was so excited. He rarely got to do
anything like this because of his migraines; however, Hank and Ida
weren’t worried. He hadn’t had one in weeks and as long as Ox was
there to provide him with his magic elixir (Ida’s term for his milk)
they weren’t too concerned.
The men set out
into the desert just as the sun was setting in the West. It was a
beautiful sunset and a leisurely ride. Angus seemed to be
enjoying himself as much as the kids. He seemed to come alive
around Waco and his posse. He was even becoming quite fond of the
lummox. Waco felt better about Ox running along side the horses
in his big boots. He knew Ox was surefooted; however, the heavy
leather of his new boots protected him and eased Waco’s mind.
It was dark by
the time they arrived at the base of the blue granite mountains;
however, it wasn’t pitch-black. There were myriad stars and it
just happened to be almost a full moon. You could see
easily and there was no need for lanterns. They didn’t bring any
anyway. Everyone dismounted and Lazarus asked them to gather
“There won’t be
any need for a fire or yore’ bedrolls tonight. I’d like to invite
you all to stay with me and my crew on board my ship, ‘The
Bandersnatch.’ Remember the huge UFO you saw the afternoon of
Master Waco’s birthday party. That’s where I came from, and it’s
time I showed you everything and explain as much as I can. I’m
telling you this ‘cause I don’t want you git’n all freaked out or
nothing. You can’t see my ship because it’s resting inside the
mountain.” Lazarus turned and spoke to someone the men couldn’t
you come out and greet our guest, please?”
All of a sudden
a shimmering door appeared and through it stepped one the best looking
cowboys the men ever saw. He not only had a drop-dead handsome face, he
was big and built like a Sherman tank. He seemed to know all the
“Allow me to
introduce you to Cable my lead android, the foreman of the
bio-mechanoids on board my ship. I had Cable created many years
ago to my specifications, and I think he turned out to be a pert-damn
good looking cowboy; and, before you ask, ‘yes’ he’s fully anatomically
perfect in every detail and can scratch the deepest itch anyone might
have. He’s a machine, gentlemen; however, he is much, much more
than a mere machine like your computers. He’s a sentient
creature,— meaning he lives and breaths just like you and I do.
He also has feelings and is capable of all human emotions. There
are several on board, male and female you will meet. Cable,— .”
over the greetings to his android first mate.
“Welcome to the
‘Bandersnatch,’ Mr. Goodnights, and to you Mr. Birdsall. Welcome
to your fine looking slave, Shane. Howdy, Mr. Waco, your little
brother JR, and your fine slaves Travis, and Rabbit. It’s good to
see you again, Ox. You certainly have grown and you look really
great in your outfit the boys got for you. That’s
outstanding. We’re very happy to have you visit. Captain
Long sent us a message to expect you, and we’re prepared for your
visit. If you’ll let go of the reins of your horses, they will
enter the porthole, and we can feed and stable them for the evening.”
responded like they were in a daze. They dropped the reins of the
horses, and walked through the shimmering porthole with no fear.
Cable made a motion with his hand for them to follow. Bill
Birdsall and Shane were the first to step forward followed quickly by
Waco and his posse. Charlie was next but Angus lingered behind.
brother,— if’n I can do this, so can you. I want to know,— don’t
you?” Charlie reached out his hand to Angus. He took it
like a small boy, smiled faintly, and followed his brother through the
porthole. Lazarus and Cable brought up the rear.
“Just follow the
horses, gentlemen.” Cable instructed.
through another porthole and into a huge area that looked like any
country scene anywhere in the world. They were on a county road
and walking down it. In the distance there was a ranch house,
huge barn and various out buildings. It looked to be about forty
acres. They soon came upon the barn and were met by a crew of
android cowboys who unsaddled their horses, fed and watered them, and
released them into the big pasture that had real trees and good, sweet
grasses growing. In the distance they could see dust arising from
an android sitting on a huge John Deere tractor plowing up the adjacent
field. Waco laughed and pointed out the Tractor in the rock.
“Now we’ve seen
to your horses, won’t you gentlemen follow me. Captain Long is
waiting for us on the bridge.”
Cable waved his
hand and another porthole like the first sprang up and he motioned for
them to pass through. They walked through and found themself in
an enormous control room of the huge ship. Sitting there along
with Captain Long was his navigator and his chief engineer, Ping and
Pong. They bowed deeply to the men and grinned. They all
returned their bow.
“This is it,
gentlemen. This is my horse I had to put down. I didn’t
mean to deceive you, but I actually did set my horse down within these
“Can we go for
short trip, Captain Long?” Bill Birdsall blurted out.
“We can if you
like, but let’s be democratic. How many would like to take a
short trip, and where would you like to go. You have your choice
of anywhere in your solar system. Your moon, Mars, Jupiter,
Saturn, Pluto; I wouldn’t recommend Mercury this time of year.
It’s rather warm and not much too see in the off-season. Uranus
is disappointing. Venus is quite pretty and has some interesting
features. Neptune is beautiful and mysterious.”
“How long will a
trip like that take, Captain Long.” Charlie asked. Lazarus
didn’t miss Charlie used the honorific of ‘Captain.’
about thirty minutes each way, Sir, give or take. Mars and Venus
are the closest this time of year. We’re looking at a round
trip to both in under an hour.”
“I vote for
Venus and Mars.” said Waco and agreed to by his men. Ox
didn’t vote. He’d been there and done that so many times, he had
his own berth on the ship that would easily accommodate his young
master and his slaves. The rest of the men agreed with Waco.
gentlemen. I’ll let my staff get us underway. If you’ll
step through this porthole, Cable and his staff have prepared some
refreshments.” Lazarus led the way and the men moved into a
wonderful viewing area. Along one wall, the wall opened about
waist high and was a buffet of all sorts of goodies. Cable took
his place at the liquid refreshment bar.
“You know me,
Charlie, I don’t usually drink, but I need something to calm my
nerves. This is all a bit too much for me.” said Angus and
he ordered a bourbon on the rocks from Cable.
brother. I’ll have the same, Cable.” Charlie requested of
the android. “Did you have a childhood, Cable?” Charlie asked the
“Well, sort of,
Mr. Goodnight. I was created as a young man of about sixteen and
grew into what I am today. I have all sorts of wonderful memories
with Father Long. All the sentient androids refer to him as
‘Captain’ or ‘Father.’ We can’t call him or his partner
‘dad.’ That’s reserved for Ox and a few other organics they’ve
raised as their own. I have almost four hundred of your years of
memories, so I guess you might allow a portion of that to be considered
a childhood. Like any sentient life form, I’ve made
mistakes and those are the things one judges growth by.”
Well put, Cable.” said Angus looking at Shane and taking a sip of his

answer to that, Master Charlie.” Master Bill spoke up. “The
Captain is two thousand, two-hundred and nineteen years old.”

impossible.” said Charlie.
all.” said Lazarus. You need to read the book Shane
found. My family was a product of selective breeding looking for
a longevity gene. They never located the actual gene until much
later; however, they were successful in their breeding program, and I
was the results. Until recently, I’ve been the oldest member of
the human race. Now, we have the longevity gene and are capable
of implanting it in others to make their life span as long or longer
“You mean you
could make us live for thousands of years?”
you will have to. It won’t be a matter of choice for you and your
families, Mr. Goodnight. Your planet is coming to a crossroads in
which it can no longer sustain the amount of people, the pollution or
destruction of natural resources. Within a little more than ten
years, all life will be wiped out on your planet because of backward
belief systems and the stranglehold of a fascist, money-grubbing,
corrupt corporate political structure. It’s fast going the way of
the dinosaurs. The Earth can no longer sustain them. It’s
collapsing under the stress.
What irony,— the
men who have the most to lose, who have amassed such wealth the world
has never seen before, who have had the resources, but never spent a
nickle to alleviate the problems of their planet will all perish
because of their greed. They have no plans for survival other
than underground bunkers which will fail within a generation and all
their money and power won’t buy them a minute more. Even if they
try to use captured alien technology to leave the Earth, they will be
stopped and destroyed by our ships.
I’ve come back
to Earth with thousands of other ships like mine to rescue and relocate
many people and animals to keep them from harms way while the Earth
recovers after the great wars. My ship is like an ark that will
take many families like yours and escape before the very end
comes. It will be necessary for you, your sons and daughters to
be given the longevity gene because you will be responsible for
repopulating another world and the new Earth. To do that, you
will have to have longer life spans.”
“You mean you
have a drug you can inject which will alter our DNA to make us live for
thousands of years?”
“Yes, Sir, I do,
and the sooner you older gentlemen take it, the sooner you stop your
aging process. You will remain your current age for centuries or
until you have to be rejuvenated. That has to be done once every
thousand years or so. Young men and women like Waco and his
slaves will continue to mature until their full growth is reached and
then they’ll never get older than their mid-twenties.”
cool.” agreed JR, Rabbit and Travis.
you’ll take a seat with your refreshments, my crew informs me we’re
about to get underway.”
The men sat in
the comfortable leather chairs and placed their snacks and drinks on
small tables next to them. Before them was a blank wall that
suddenly a huge square section simply vanished. You could see
directly through to what looked like solid granite.
at the rock the ship is encased in, gentlemen. When we take off,
the rock will resume its natural position and the hole we displaced
will return to solid granite. When we return, the ship will once
again displace the rock. How does it do it? Quantum
mechanics, gentlemen. The rock is simply relocated to a nearby
dimension. It doesn’t cease to exist, it’s just harmonically
separated in time from our dimension, but it can quickly be
reclaimed. Your scientist are experimenting with ‘quantum dots’
now to make weapons delivery systems invisible to an enemy. It’s
like newspaper print. All matter is composed of small dots.
Even humans and all living creatures. It’s all held together, not
by gravity, or strings, nor sub-atomic particle interaction, but by
harmonics. Harmonics is the binding glue of the universe.
It is the very essence of music. The music of the spheres,
learned how to rearrange the dots, so to speak, by interrupting the
harmonics of their bodies, and can disappear before your eyes.
When Ox disappears, he isn’t gone, he’s just shifted his dots so he
can’t be seen. To explain how naturally gifted his species is,
they have been doing it naturally for centuries before we ever
considered the idea. They taught many of the native Americans how
to walk unseen.
told me stories of Indian braves who could walk naked among their
enemies unseen.” Spoke up Rabbit.
“All legends are
based upon some truth, Chief. Some more than others. That
legend is based on a great deal of truth.”
There was only
the slightest sense of movement. It wasn’t enough to make the ice
clink in their drinks, and the men watched as the wall began to move
through the granite and exit above the mountain. They could see
everything now. The desert and the land beyond. They flew
over Charlie’s ranch and then over Angus,’ then, took off straight
up. They couldn’t feel any movement. It was like watching a
video of leaving a small point on the Earth and moving at great speed
out and out, up and up into the void of space. The ship turned a
hundred-eighty degrees and the moon filled the wall.
“Is this a video
image we’re looking at, Captain Long?” Angus asked.
“Naw, Sir, Mr.
Goodnight. It is the actual wall of the ship. It’s just
been shifted so you can to see through it. The wall and all its
protection is still there.”
passed the moon the view of the Earth was as a giant blue
marble. JR came to Charlie and climbed up into his
lap. Waco moved to the feet of his Uncle Angus and was joined by
Travis and Rabbit. Shane took his master’s hand. Ox gently
put his hand on Lazarus’ shoulder.
“It’s hard to
believe, Captain Long, something as beautiful as our planet might come
to an end soon.”
Master Charlie,— it is, after all, the planet of my birth. I
don’t expect you to grasp it all at once. You will know the signs
as we live and work together. When the time comes, there will be
no doubt in your minds what must be done.” Lazarus said quietly.
The men sat in
silence watching as the Earth and moon receded from the ship ever
faster and got smaller and smaller. In fifteen minutes they
reached the orbit of Mars.
