Jesse's Winter Lesson
By Shannon Jackson
  

1     Jesse was fourteen that winter. He wasn't looking to learn any extraordinary lesson. It was one of those things that just sort of struck - like a bolt of lightning.
 
2     "Jesse, is your lunch packed?" Jesse's dad yelled from the back porch. "Better hurry, son, if we're gonna make it there by seven."
 
3     "Who said I wanted to make it by seven?" Jesse grumbled under his breath.
 
4     The horizon was just beginning to change from dark black to steel gray. The forecast had been for a sunny day, but the sky indicated otherwise.
 
5     Jesse finished packing the last of his lunch and carried his gear out to the pickup. The snowmobile trailer was hitched to a blue Dodge. "Is there room in the box for my stuff, Dad?"
 
6     "You can put your lunch and things in the saddlebags if you want, Jesse."
 
7     Jesse understood his dad was pointing out that Jesse was not doing things the way his dad liked. Man, what did it matter if he put the gear in the bags now or later? He considered stuffing his things into the box anyway, pretending he didn't hear, but the day would be a heck of a lot better if he just did as he was ordered.
 
8     "Ready?" his dad asked, opening the door and sliding into the pickup.
 
9     "I guess." It was beginning to spit snow. Hopefully, it would quit by the time they got to the place where they'd unload.
