19. .

    We had some more small talk, but never did I truly reveal that I was running away because of my parents being dead and my horse about to be slaughtered. That was personal information for only me to know.

   Within 15 minutes we were passing the faded wood sign that read "Welcome to Fairvi le!"

   The l was so faded you couldn't even see it.

   I directed her to a road that was only a 2 minute walk from my house and told her it was okay to dump me off here. I opened up the car door and stepped out with my backpack.

   I began to close the door when she stopped me.

   "Here sweetie." she said handing me a 20 dollar bill

    "What's this?" I asked

    "Oh just something to keep you up and running for a little bit. Think of it as a gift from me."

    "Well thank you." I said

    "No prob, and remember, I gave you my number incase you ever needed to call me."

    "Yes, thanks again."

    She nodded at me and I shut the door. I stood there and watched her red Nissan pull away until it became a little dot in the horizon.

     I began my journey down the road that lead to my house.

    I passed creepy Steve Blunther's house. It was a dingy, grey sided trailer. I could make out my barn behind the dense trees. My heart began to speed up. I realized that this was the breaking point at which I found out if my horse is dead or not. I began to run to the barn. Even though my legs felt wobbly from running and walking all day, I still gave it all I got. Sides heaving, heart about to burst, hair flying back in the warm spring wind, I ran.


    When I got there I flung open the doors and ran down the isle. My run slowed to a walk. So did my heart, when I didn't see Blaze's head popping out of his stall, or hear his whinny.

   Wait! Maybe he is sleeping! Yes, this must be it, this must be why he is not visible from 3 stalls away.

   My pace began to quicken as I got to the second to last stall. I stopped. Please let him be here, please!

   I got to the last stall and my heart dropped as I stand there staring into nothing but messed up saw dust. No! No! No! No!

   This can't be happening!

    I dropped to the ground and began sobbing.

   "First my parents, then my horse! What did I ever do to deserve this!" I screamed out loud to thin air

   Nobody answered, just the lonely wind howling outside of the barn, pushing against its siding asking it to let it in.
