The Midnight Stallion

A mysterious black stallion gallops through the land every night at midnight. But he is not an average horse. There is something special about him. He cannot be tamed but he hides a secret. Something special about him that no one knows. No one has tried to befriend him. Until now.

5. A Promise

"You can talk?!" I blurt out.
The stallion nods.
"Do you have a name?" I ask trying to contain my excitement.
The stallion shakes his mane. "I have no name. Without a name. No one can call me their own. Without a name, I am free from cruel humans."
I sit down on the grass beside him. He lies down beside me but still keeps his distance. I pull some blades of grass and begin plaiting them while I think of what to say next.
"Is that because your owner was cruel? You never knew kindness so you show no kindness in return?" I ask cautiously.
The stallion put his ears back slightly then nods. He swishes his tail slightly casting a gentle breeze towards me.
"No human is kind. I don't trust any of them. But you...you seem different from the others. When I saw you I didn't feel scared. Almost like I had no reason to be.
I smile, "Not all humans are cruel. I'm not."
He blows gently into my face. His breath is warm and comforting. But I notice he doesn't come any closer.
"You don't trust me either." I sigh.
The stallion lowers his head and snorts. "No."
"Why?"
The stallion says nothing for a few minutes.
"Because I don't know you. No one has tamed or been my friend before. I need to know if you would exploit me. Tell the world I exist. You must promise you will tell no one about me."
My project enters my mind. If I don't do it I will fail, if I do it I would be betraying him. But I don't have to say I saw him. I can just talk about l what I know of the legend. Surely that will be ok.
"I promise." I reply.
The stallion comes closer and nuzzles me. "Then I believe you. But I must warn you. I don't trust you completely. Not yet. First you must keep your promise."
I feel my heart sink. I will need to be careful in what I put into my project. Otherwise, the stallion will never trust me.
