Bo sat on the park bench in Hazzard square and pretended to read a car magazine. He was really watching Cooter and his new assistant work on Roscoe and Enos's patrol car. To hear Cooter tell it, he"Just couldn't not give her a job." Bo lauged as Madi and Cooter got into an argument over which part went into which car. Bo heard that Madi was taking her lunch break. Bo stared down at the car magazine.

"Care if I sit here, Bo?" Madi asked, two cans of beerin her hand.

"Na, I don't mind." Bo said, scooting over to make room.

"Want one?" Madi asked holding out a beer to him.

"Sure. I can't believe they wrecked their cars agin." Bo said taking the beer with one hand and pointing at the cars with another.

"Na. Boss is payin' tripple to fix'em up like the General Lee. Says we're the only ones that know the build of the General." Madi said, wiping the grease off her hands onto a grease rag.

"So how long are you off for lunch?"Bo asked.

"Rest of the day." MAdi said.

Madi and Cooter went inside and had a beer. When they came back outside, a boy was leading a horse to the watering trough.

"Who's That." Cooter asked.

"Oh, Him. That's my cousin Drew. He was having problems behaving so they sent him down here to go to school for a while. But he loves it. My cousin Amber, his sister, should be around here somewhere." Madi said.

"Well, thanks for the beer." Cooter said.

"Your welcome. Now where is that girl?" Madi asked.

"Well good luck findin' Amber." Cooter said.

"Oh, you need to go to the hospital. Jesse Duke just had a massive heart attack." Madi said. "Bo and Luke need someone to be strong for them. And I think you would be the best person for that." Madi said, putting both of her hands on his shoulders.

"I will. Thanks for lettin' me know." Cooter said.

At Tri-Counties hospital...

"Hey Bo, Luke, Miss Daisy." Enos said. "I heard bout'cher unlce Jesse an I just wanted to let you know how sorry I was for ya."

"Well, Thanks Enos. We preciate it." Daisy said.

"Hey y'all. I heard bout uncle Jesse, and I came as soon as possible." Cooter said. "And I need to talk to Bo."

"What is it Cooter?" Bo asked.

"You really need to give Madi some time." Cooter said.

"What? How do you know?" Bo asked.

"She has it rough. She's only twenty-two and she's tryin to raise a twelve year old and a ten year old. She also has to run a farm, keep track of all her horses, and keep up with the bills. And you wouldn't even know what to do in her situation. You just run around in your little General Lee and when you wreck it you come cryin to me. You ain't never payed your own way. And shes payin the bills, the vet bills, and shes savin for them two kids college. Just slow it down." Cooter said, walking back down the hall to talk to Daisy and Luke. Bo stood there, shocked at what Cooter had jsut told Him. Give her some time? He was deffinetly confused.

After Cooter left Madi went looking for Amber.

"Drew, hon, have you seen Amber around here today?" Madi asked.

"Ya," Drew said, currying Maverick, "She took off on Limp a while ago."

"Okay, Thanks. Which dirrection did she go?" Madi asked picking up a hoof pick and began to pick his hooves.

"She said she was going to the creek." Drew said, dropping the currycomb in the bucket and picking up a soft bristle brush and began to brush him down.

"Well, as soon as I'm done with Maver- ya know what?" Madi paused.

"What?" Drew asked, stopping his brushing.

"I think it's high time you learned to pick a horse's hooves." Madi said.

"Really?" Drew asked excitedly.

"Yes really. I learned how when I was just about your age." Madi said, squating down so that their eyes met.

"Okay. First, you gotta get the horse to pick their feet up. So you put your hand right above the hoof. Then you apply pressure and they lift their foot up. You try." Madi said, putting Maverick's foot back on the ground.

"Okay." Drew said, bending over to pick Maverick's hooves.

"You do this while I go and look for Amber. And when your done, if I'm not back yet, saddle up Maverick here and take 'em after me and Amber, K?" Madi asked Drew.

"Yes, Madi. I won't let you down." Drew said holding the pick in his hand and looking up at Madi as she stretched back up to her full height.

"And when we get back we can have a horse groomin' party. How's that sound?" Madi asked.

"Awesome. Can I put the buckets together? I mean with all of the brushes and combs in them, can I?" Drew said.

"Sure thing."Madi said, ruffling his hair. Madi went in the barn and got out James's tack out. She carried it out to the pasture and sat it on the fence.

Madi sat on top of the fence and whistled for James to come. He trotted up to the fence and nudged the saddle.

"Okay, Boy. We'll go for a run. Don't worry." Madi said, sliding off of the fence. She grabbed the tack and began to put on the saddle.James whinnied loudly.

"Your right. I was testing you. But what exactly did I forget? Was it the bridal? Or was it the saddle blanket?" Madi asked James. "One or two?"

James stomped out the number two in the dirt and whinnied loudly.

"Good Boy." Madi said taking off the saddle and putting on the saddle blanket. She replaced the saddle and put on the bridal. She mounted and took off at a gentle pace. Soon after she looked back and saw Drew on Maverick. She stopped James and waited for Drew to catch up.

"Got done early?" Madi asked.

"Yep. And I watered the cows and I let the dogs out to run. And I fed the Chickens and Goatses and I watered the Goatses and dogs." Drew said.

" Good. Now lets find your sister." Madi said.

"Can we run?The horses have been in the stable most of the day. Me and Amber turned the horses out a little before she left." Drew said.

"Sure Thing little buddy." Madi said, coaxing James into a run and Drew did the same.

"Hello? Hazzard County Garage." He answered.

"Cooter, you gotta help me. I cain't find Madi. I found Drew and their horses but Madi wasn't no where to be found." Amber rushed over the phone in a sobbing tone.

"Well last time I saw her was about 5 yesterday afternoon. She went out looking for you." Cooter said.

"Well, I need you to come and get Drew he's so shocked about everything I still cain't geta a single word out of him. He just sits and stares at the wall."

"Don't worry darlin' I'm down and i'm out. You can reach me on the CB." He said.

"Oh thanks Cooter. Thank you so much." Amber said. Cooter slammed the phone down on the reciever and jumped into his wrecker. He turned the keys and gave it a start. He gave it all the gas it could handle and he sped thru town.
