5. Knight and beauty

5)

During the  carriage ride I learn that the two horses are called knight and beauty- and they are brother and sisters and that they are inseparable. 
Tom asks about my home and school, but I wander around the edge of the subject, being very vague . I don't want them too all know I never had friends, i don't know why, but Ik very sure. 
"I guess your gunna miss all your friends?" Tom asks, squinting into the distance into the sun. We then take a turn into a dense forest.
"um, yeah I guess!" I rapidly try and change the subject........
"do um, gypsy's  oh, wait...I mean 'adventures', ride horses or just put them on carriages?" phew, just in time.
"everyone above 13 years has a horse, mine is knight. "
I sigh. I will never be able to save enough money for a horse.
"one you have settled in we can find you one :) " for the first time in about half an hour, he looks at me and smiles. 
It's now getting dark and he urges the horses up into trot and before long I see a million small blue lights twinkling between the trees. 

When we get closer Tom stops the horses and jumps out. I follow and open the carraige to pull out our boxes, but Winter stops me, saying me and mum where to share this carraige too sleep in tonight. He explains that everyone in the 'group takes turns sleeping in one of the three carriages or in a little tent.
