Disclaimers: Xena, Gabrielle, and Argo are the exclusive property of MCA/Universal Television, and Renaissance Pictures. I simply borrowed these characters for pure entertainment for nothing. with no intent on copy right imfringement.
Sex: Not really, just a kiss, I left the rest up to you to figure out the rest. After all the is a TV show.
Note: This scene takes place during the last 5 to 10 mins of the final episode of the 5th year ( on knees praying that is not so ), since don’t know what it is about and don’t want to guess at it, will just sort of tack this on at the last.
This is my second FanFiction, and want to thank all of the other bards for there inspiration, and to the TPTB for bringing to life two wonderful characters for us to use.
CAMPFIRE SCENE: Xena and Gabrielle are sitting near a campfire, talking about their latest adventure.
"Well that was exciting, but glad that it’s over with." states Gabrielle, as she turns to look at Xena.
Xena looks up and answers "Yeah, I sure am too."
Gabrielle thinks to herself, ‘I have to tell her, after what we just went thru, before it’s to late.’ She sighs.
"Gabrielle, what’s wrong?" Xena asks her friend, concern showing on her face. Ever since the stopped to make camp the little bard has been very quite and thoughtful.
‘Well here goes,’ Gabrielle turns to Xena, looking into those deep pools that seem to see into her soul. "I have something to say, and please don’t interrupt. I have to say this or I might never say it."
Xena looks at Gabrielle, hoping to herself that it is what she herself has been wanting to hear and say.
Gabrielle continues, grabbing Xena’s hand, "We have been together traveling for 5 years now. You took me away from a life that other wise would have been boring and repetative. That life was not for me, and I am and always will be grateful to for that. I know at first you just thought of me as a tagalog kid, and hoping I would get tired of the adventure and return home."
Xena gives a little smile, thinking about when they first met.
"At first," continues Gabrielle, "I think it was a big case of hero worship and the chance to get away from home, but later it was more than that. I was seeking adventure, new places and people, and a chance to learn new stories. We needed each other, me as your conscience and you as a teacher. We have become the best of friends. Have been through alot together both good and bad....."
Gabrielle squeezes Xena’s hand, tear in her eyes.
"I know" whispers Xena.
"And if I had the chance to do it all over again, I wouldn’t change nothing" The warrior gives Gabrielle the look, "Well....almost nothing. Cause, I....." Gabrielle leaves off, not sure how to finish.
Xena pulls Gabrielle into a big hug, "Me too."
Gabrielle pulls back, "There’s something else, I ....." she stops again. She looks into Xena’s eyes, finding the encouragement from the other half of her soul. "I...love you."
"I love you too, Gabrielle" Xena looks at her bard, waiting for what she hopes is coming next.
"NO....you don’t understand, I am in love with you." Finally!!! She gets it out what she has been feeling for so long. Gabrielle waits for Xena’s reaction, and gets it.
With tears flowing freely, all the emotions coming to the surface, Xena embraces Gabrielle, " I’m in love with you too, have been for a long time."
"Why didn’t you tell me?" cries Gabrielle, still in the embrace.
"Because I wasn’t sure you felt that way. You know I am not good with emotions, and you are such a loving person it’s hard to sometimes tell with you."
"Xena," Gabrielle whispers in Xena’s ear.
"Yes, Gabrielle." whispers back.
And Xena does.
FADE IN: Next morning, Xena and Gabrielle are getting ready to leave.
"Yea, let’s go"
Xena mounts Argo, then helps Gabrielle up.
"Hey! Why are you putting me in front?" yelps Gabrielle.
"So I can do this" and puts her arms around the little bard and nuzzles her ear."
"Ohh..." whispers Gab.
As they start down the road to the future, we hear;
"You are right. You do have MANY skills."
And with that we fade out, as laughter fills the air.
Well, what do u think? Be kind as this in my first work, and as I am not much of a writer. This work was done for all the years we have had that dang subtext, and I decided to settle it once and for all. :) Send all email to BitrSuite1@aol.com
