The Risk

15 year old Cassie Acquah doesn't realize what "risk" is until she gets herself stuck... The thing is, a board game isn't really the same as real life, so how will she survive when she gets thrown head-first into one. Well, I suppose she COULD fall in love with the troop leader, become a soldier and explore the world on horseback, but how will she ever get out?


15. Picnic in the Sunset

After a while, we came across a stable, where there was a beautiful white stallion whinnying under a blossoming tree. "Shhhhhh, it's OK, Beautiful!" he cooed at the horse as I stood awkwardly in the corner. Then he suddenly turned to me "Sorry, I've only got one... But she's nice and broad," he patted the horse's side affectionately "She can fit two. Come on, hop on! She doesn't bite..." he chuckled as I gulped and started ambling towards the great mare. The hoisted my up by my pixie boots and the he got on behind me, taking hold of the reigns and urging us forward. We galloped through the fields, occasionally coming across animals, but we came to a very secluded area atop a hill which was hidden by a willow tree. My stomach grumbled impatiently. "Don't worry," he winked "I've got food."

We finished eating the glorious meal he had packed ("I made it myself last night!") and lay back onto the picnic rug and looked up at the now setting sun. "It's beautiful..." I whispered.

"Not as beautiful as you," he replied, smiling. I felt giddy.

"There was something I wanted to talk to you about..." and he suddenly turned away, a deep thought crossing his mind. "Well, I've decided to ask you straight. Are you a player?"
