JR's car rolled slowly towards the entrance of the privileged and private community that Sue Ellen now lived in. "Damn it..." he said quietly, thinking it was only to himself but John Ross heard him. ""What's wrong Daddy?" the boy asked. "Well son, you'll understand more as you get older but being a Ewing sometimes comes with a price..." JR said, referring to the group of reporters that were still camped outside the gates. "You mean them?" John Ross said, comprehending what his father was saying. "Yep...!" JR said. Upon recognising JR's licence plate, a female reporter shouted 'There he is!" and a small camera crew started running towards the car. JR hit the button to pull the top back to shield himself and more importantly John Ross. "Mr Ewing, Mr Ewing!" came the voices. "Get down John Ross!" JR instructed as he pushed John Ross' head between his knees. JR gently eased the ignition to move forward, forcing the reporters to move. The pop of a flash went off at the side of the car John Ross was at. JR turned off the ignition and angrily stepped out of the vehicle. The reporters seemed to instantly recognise the error of their timing and took a step backwards as JR stared at them. Only a few more zealous ones tried to continue on their quest and were coming to JR's side of the car. "Which one of you just pointed that camera at my son?" JR said, in a tone that only he could master as he leaned both his hands on the roof of the car and stared across at them. When no answer came he said, "I'm not going to ask you twice". Judging by the look on the face of the twenty-something young man with the long lensed camera, JR guessed it was him. He walked around the car, as the group ceased what they were doing. Some looked at him in fear, others looked at the ground. One tried to move away and was dragged back by the arm by his colleague who clearly didn't want to be left alone. JR squared up to the much smaller cameraman and said, "Delete the photo. Now". The young man visibly gulped, his hands shaking as he attempted to delete the photo. JR watched as he did it, then in an equally menacing tone said, "Thank you". JR surveyed the group, now standing protectively in front of the window John Ross was behind. "Ladies and gentlemen", JR began, I am willing to talk to you but not now. This is not the right time and my son is with me. I need to get him to safety and I will answer any questions you might have at a later time..." The group appeared to respect the welfare of John Ross - as much for their own sakes incase they faced further wrath from JR - and slowly began to dispurse. Some seemed disgruntled and others were very compliant and moved aside. JR had absolutely no intentions of talking to the press but his fake promise worked. He now faced another hurdle. As he got back inside the car and beckoned John Ross to sit up, he asked, "You okay son?" "I'm okay Daddy..." JR was angry but didn't want to let it show. John Ross had been through enough lately. JR asked him softly, "John Ross, do you by any chance know the code to get through this gate?" John Ross shook his head. "Momma always uses like a control thing and points at it". "Mmmm", JR said. "Can't we just call her?" JR laughed. "I don't think she'd let me in son....but you know who she would let in?" "Me?" John Ross asked. "Right again!" "But how?" the boy puzzled. "See that pretty little lady over there?" JR pointed to the security guard at the other side of the gate. "How about I teach you how to use the ol' Ewing charm to get what you want?" "What do I have to do?" JR explained to John Ross that he needed to go to the gate and get the guard's attention. It all seemed a bit extreme, however JR wanted to take Sue Ellen by surprise rather than risking she wouldn't let him in or that worse still she didn't answer the telecom which would frighten both him and John Ross. He needed to get inside. John Ross did his best. Smiling sweetly at the guard - a young woman named Tammy - and JR could see him pointing to and from the car. JR waved politely, making sure she knew he didn't pose a threat by not moving the car. A couple of minutes later, JR was delighted to see that John Ross had clearly inherited his skills of persuasion as the large white gates in in front of him began to open. "That's my boy!" JR said grinning as John Ross hopped back inside the car. JR put the foot down before she changed her mind. He stopped to speak to Tammy and thanked her for her kindness. "That's a good lookin' boy you have there Mr Ewing", she said. "He sure is!" JR said, flashing his diamond white grin at the girl. "I can't thank you enough Tammy. Say...have you seen my wife?" "I saw her come back earlier this afternoon Mr Ewing...but I haven't seen her since then. Although her car is there, round back..." "Thank you again. Can you accept..?" JR motioned to take out his wallet. "Oh no no Mr Ewing, it's a pleasure to meet you finally..." JR tipped his hat and slowly manoeuvred the car around to the back of the property. He was somewhat relieved to see Sue Ellen's car parked around the back too, hidden from sight. He turned off the engine and took a deep breath.
