blue-sky-ellen: Well… maybe? What do you think it is?
[Scowls] Humph. A drawing book.
[Pulls himself to his feet and rapidly brushes off the chicken feed from his poncho, taking a look at the mess and yelling aloud] This is harassment! Get back here! [Tries to locate the strange creature around the coop but finally gives up with an angry huff, mumbling curses]
[Tries to hush Calvertutrp who’s barking noisily and jumping at her, being forced to speak over the dog] So what? You can’t live like that forever, or you’ll be taken advantage of! [Glares] I’m sure you can speak normally. Quit being a nuisance and try again.
[His dog starts to chase her and Jamie shouts] Idiot… you’re not supposed to run! [Follows quickly]
[His dog Calvertutrp barks loudly at her approach and Jamie shooes it away impatiently, facing her, desperately annoyed.] You’re barely intelligible with all that stuttering, how pitiful! What makes you think I’ll help you?
[Was brushing his cow’s hide, when her sudden shout made him jolt. His expression was full of irritation as he turned to her.] Have you come here just to get under my skin? Get lost.
This is Jamie Ranch. [Folds arms angrily] What do you want here intruder? I thought I warned you people to stay away.
A rancher? Yes. I am one as well. Though high above your level. [Looks thoughtful for only a second then points at her] Then you’re my new rival!
[Scoffs] I’m always busy. I don’t have help. And my fence is half busted.
You think I’m bubbly? [smiles to self, taking it as a compliment] Well— Thank you!
And Joe’s like my big brother! Though, I sometimes wonder myself who he /really/ is. You know, he fishes. So… Is he a carpenter or a fisherman? [a thoughtful look crosses her face before she shakes her head and chuckles] I won’t fall, I promise! I am rather clumsy but I’ll be extra careful!
[Scoffs] Bubbly… it’s a synonym for annoying… okay?
[Grits teeth] Joe..your brother? How can you stand him? I know who he really is. Neither of those things. He’s a terrible fisherman. [Smirks]
[Lets out a loud sigh, grabs her wrist and pulls her to his barn] Wait here. You better be right or you’ll… whatever. Don’t move. [Walks off to where he stores things]
