24. .

    I cupped my hand over my mouth to muffle the gasp that I let out.

   This couldn't be!

   Ohhh but it was, it was everything a young horse loving girl dreaded. From bullies being bullies, to having to leave your horse over spring break, to your parents' death...all leading up to the only thing left that made you happy in your life...

    a bullet about to be wedged into your horse's skull.

And there i stood. Little feeble Stephanie Morrison that had nothing to look forward to in life accept coming home to her beautiful horse, Blade-who was now about to die.

   Well this was about to change.

    "Stop!" I screamed while reaching my hand out as if that was going to help save the moment

   Steve Blunther looked at me, and then at a now curious but frightened Blade, then back at me.

    "Stay back little girl," Steve said in a scary, deep, raspy voice that made me jump out of my shoes. "He's mine now!"

   Then Steve did the most frightening thing out of all...

    he pointed the gun at me.

   I stood there, my whole face was flushed red with a panicked stamina.

    "No he's not!" I screamed back. I was surprised i even had the courage to.

    "He was left for me!" Steve yet again yelled at me

    "No he was not! He was left for you to take care of!"

    "Well finders' keepers, losers weepers!"

    Then Steve pointed the gun back at Blade in attempt to make a run for his money and shoot him.

    It was only then when the mean side of me came out. That side of me that i hadn't let go of ever since Cassie started bullying me.

   And now it had to come out.

   So i did the first thing that came to my mind.

   I saw a rifle propped up against a bloody barrell just a foot to the right of where i was standing.

   So i grabbed that rifle and positioned it up towards my eye to where i could see perfectly out of the scope and at Steve Blunther's leg.

   And i did something i never thought i would do.

   I pulled the trigger.

    And all the time i had left to see was Steve Blunther fall to the ground, screaming and Blade pull back on the tie out of fear.

   "Ahhhh!" Steve screamed out of pain "You damn girl just shot me with a gun that wasn't yours!"

    I smirked. "Finders' keepers, losers weepers, huh Steve?" I laughed and carefully walked over to a wailing Steve who was now lying on the ground and cussing like a sailor.

    "Oh, and by the way, next time you mess with me, you're gonna get more than a hurt leg." i whispered in his ear.

   I saw Steve try to reach for the gun he had dropped and as i saw him struggle to do this, i took advantage. I kicked it out of his way.

   "Bye Steve..." i smirked.

   I walked over to Blade and took him by his lead, leading him out of that area and through the sliding door.

    "Ok Blade, you gotta run now, cuz i just did something really, really bad." i told Blade as i hopped on his back.

   "Yaw!" i yelled as i kicked him and urged him forward to run

   The only thing ws he wouldn't run. He just stood there.

   "Come on, Blade let's go! We haven't got much time!"

    So i kicked him again, but he still wouldn't move. All he did was walk slowly over to the dappled grey pony's stall and stand there.

      "Is he your friend?" i asked Blade. Blade curved his neck back and just looked at me. "Well i guess we can take extra company."I sighed

   So i slid off of Blade and ran down the isle of horses, unlatching each stall and opening their gate.

  Some of the sick ones just stood in their stall, but the decent ones took off out of their stall and ran out of the opened barn door. The dappled grey pony stood by Blade.

   I hopped back on Blade and kicked him hard again.

   This time Blade took off, with the little, dappled grey pony following right behind.
