Luke looked down, the doubt and sadness clear in his eyes. Bo didn't remember him, Uncle Jesse, or Daisy. The muscle in Luke's jaw worked, his eyes still diverted to the floor as he thought of ways that would help him jog Bo's memory. Pulling his knees up to his chest, resting his tired forearms across them, Luke felt his wallet as he scooted around a little, smiling, Luke got up on one knee pulling out his wallet. Opening it up, he pulled out a picture, in perfect condition, of Bo, Uncle Jesse, Daisy, and him. Turning to face Bo, Luke held out the picture for him to take and look at.

Luke grinned widely. He could tell his cousin remembered and was as pleased as punch he did. When Bo handed the picture back, Luke put it back in the pocket of his wallet, putting his wallet in his back pocket. Sitting down, his back to the wall in a comfortable position, Luke sighed.

"It's been twelve years Bo since we last seen ya cousin..."

Luke smiled lightly, shaking his head.

"You was buggin' me and Daisy all day, t' play cowboys and indians with ya.. well, a couple of our friends...Cooter and Lori Davenport...came by and we managed t' rustle them in on the game... me and you was runnin' from 'enemy fire' and you darted off in t' some bushes...last we seen of ya....we searched for days on end....I never stopped..."

Luke sighed heavily, remembering all the laboring and tiring days he spent out in the woods or walking down the roads searching for him.

As it grew dark outside, hearing the shuffles of feet and muffled voices above finally die down, Luke let out a sigh, closing his eyes sleepily as he stretched his legs out, leaning back against the wall putting his hands behind his head for a pillow. Keeping one eye open to watch out for Bo or for anyone to come down there, Luke yawned tiredly, tomorrow proved to be an interesting day for the two of them.

Bright and early the next morning, Luke was wide awake. Standing up, he stretched his aching body, every limb he had popping and cracking. Scratching his brunette locks, Luke looked out the barred window, seeing the robbers outside. Smiling when he seen two of them leaving, and one staying, he knew it would be an easy escape. It was just the part of getting Bo to Doc Appleby's in Hazzard, in fact, it was getting to Hazzard period that was the problem. Shaking hs head to clear his thoughts, Luke looked around as much as the iron bars on the window would let him, trying to scout out an area around them. Seeing a pine thicket straight ahead of them, he smiled to himself. Trudging back over to Bo, Luke knelt down beside of him shaking his shoulder as gently as possible.

"Wake up cousin...we're gettin' outta here..."

Luke ran a hand down his face, slowly climbing up the stairs half way.

"I'm gonna use my knife to jimmy open the door, when the 'guard' comes to the door, we knock him out, tie him up. There's a pine thicket just across from us, we'll get to it and think of how to get to Hazzard from there."

Luke only prayed his plan would work as good as it did in his mind.

Letting out a breath, saying a silent prayer, Luke looked through the keyhole seeing the man with his head thrown back against the back of the sofa, sleeping. Nodding to himself mentally, Luke took out his pocket knife, flipping open the blade. With skill, he expertly jimmied the door open, stopping momentarily to look back out the keyhole to see if the man had moved any. Smiling when he saw no change in the man's stance, Luke quietly pushed open the door tippy-toing his way up the last couple of stairs, looking back at Bo to see if he was ok.
