Celeste had melted snow for Wolf to drink when the canine woke up. She broke off pieces of jerky to share with him until he needed to go outside. She moved the tarp away from the hole while taking note it had stopped snowing, wolf jumped out quickly to do his business. Not wanting to take her eyes off wolf she softly whistled for his return when he finished. Wolf didn’t want to go inside yet, he wanted to play in the soft fresh snow.
She smiled at how wolf got fired up in the snow, she was about to go outside and play with him when Jack began to stir. “We survived Nujalik?” She gently walked over to Jack and gave him a hand to rise. “Indeed we did, I made some more jerky broth on the stove before we leave. Don’t put anymore wood in that stove either.” Jack looked around the little shed and shyly asked Celeste where he could take a leak. “Use that coffee can we found for now Jack, cause if you go outside you might freeze that stick of yours off and it won’t be any use for you tonight.” Jack smiled and said, “You nasty girl, is that all you think of is getting poked?” Celeste roared with laughter, while Jack went into a corner and turned his back on her to begin his morning task.
Wolf ran into the shed quickly full of snow. He shook his furry body next to Celeste sending a blast of snow all over her. “Wolf, what the hell!” Only that didn’t stop the lupus, he began to run in circles with frisky energy. Celeste smiled happily at her friend until wolf ran into the peeing Jack’s back. Sending him forward and dropping his pee can.
The loud noise that Jack produced when he fell to his doom against the wall while peeing was priceless. He quickly bellowed out loud. “You Son of a Bitch! Damn you Wolf! What the F*%^ Asshole, etc. etc…” Celeste stood in disbelief the foul words she heard coming out of Jack’s mouth. She began to giggle uncontrollably. Wolf stood next to her wagging his tail, Celeste had to take a double look at the beast. She could have sworn she saw a mischievous smile on his hairy chops.
“Come here you Mother F*^*^ I’m going to kick your ass! You cut that shit out, right now!” Jack got up and started to head for wolf who suddenly tried to hide behind Celeste. She couldn’t hold her tongue any longer when she saw Jack coming at wolf like a mad man with his limp stick hanging out.
“Whoa there partner, easy does it my limp pistol. He was only playing and didn’t mean you harm. But I say he did a good job of pissing you off.” She busted up with laughter. Jack knew he blew up and tried to gather his composure. How embarrassing to say the least for Jack, he try to recover by saying in a tender tone. “I swear you two are against me. What the hell am I going to do without you two when you leave me?” Celeste stop her laughter and became serious. She didn’t want to think when the time came for her to say farewell to her partner in crime.
“I love you too Jack, now put your toy away and let’s quit this play, we have a long day ahead of us. We have places to go and people to see.” Jack didn’t know what she meant about toy until she used her eyes to show him his glory. He quickly tucked it in while turning a deep shade of red.
They left the shed as they found it except covering the warm stove up. And when the pair got on their ATV to leave, it would not start. Several times she turned the key for the engine to start, but in the end knew it had frozen the gas line. “We will have to walk back to the airport Jack and have them pick this piece of shit up. I am sure its not that far, see it’s over there.” Celeste pointed in the direction the airport could be seen.
It didn’t take the group long to enter into the small airport. They were greeted by the same lady who help them out when they arrived. “Oh my heavens, we were so worried about you three last night. We even had a few men out there looking for you, but visibility was horrible and they returned empty handed. I should have told you that you could have spend the night in here, but I didn’t think. I am sorry, can you forgive me?” Celeste smiled at her. “Do not blame yourself, I too was not in a mood to think. So let’s try this again without pointing the finger at someone. I would like to know if you guys have a Snow Cat?” The young lady immediately smiled and confirmed they did. “I am not pussy footin’ around here anymore, let me bring out the big guns to play with; because I will be dipped in doo-key if I am going to be caught with my pants down again.” Celeste looked at Jack and gave him a playful wink. Jack smiled but suddenly became shy.
Quickly the young Inuit asked her if she knew how to drive the big machinery. “Youngin’ I was born to drive anything an anyone before you probably were in diapers.” Jack chuckled at the shocked look the Eskimo girl gave Celeste. He wanted to break out with laughter hearing her southern sassy cowgirl dialect shock the young lady. All he could think of at this moment, is how good it felt to have his Nujalik back in good spirits ready to rock the world.
