Title: Snowman
Fandom: BBM
Rating: G
Summary: Canon one-shot. Ennis circa early 70's daydreams for an instant about Jack.
Word Count: 99
AN: Unbeta'd


The snow muted sound, disappeared Alma and the girls' laughter into nothing-white. The snowfall thickened until it obscured the sight of them, and he was in a world all his own, alone out on the valley floor. He imagined Jack there with him, their house, Jack's laughter.

"Look, daddy, we built a snowman!" Jenny's enthusiasm burst forth just as she did-- a specter from the white whorl.

"Sure did, honey." He could not restrain a smile at his daughter's joy. After all, he'd built a snowman too-- he understood. It made you feel less alone until it melted into the ether.

Oh My. Another Poor Ennis tale. Since it's canon, we can hope for no better. Thanks. Carole

Ah, this is heartbreaking and so perfect...it reminds me of the movie canon with Alma and Ennis in the snow - such a contrast to how it is now...

Dear Jess,

You do canon very well, but it makes me sad. That's why I waited before reading your last drabbles...
All of them are so believable, you feel again the pain or, like in this one, the loneliness.

Thank you!

I'm glad the even Ennis could dayfream sometimes. This was great. Thank you. : )
