- "Just tell me what I have to do. Just tell me. Please! I-- I don't know... I don't remember anything! None of this nonsense you guys are making me believe.
Maybe, I don't know the rights and wrongs as I think I do right now. I'm begging you, just please tell me, guide me or something! Give me directions. I can't do this on my own."
"Believing what's right isn't enough Vera. You have to remember. Because if you don't, no one will or can tolerate a fake act."

6. Chapter 3 (con't)

***

Breakfast is done and cleared with. But, this riding will take ten times longer than breakfast. My maids help me switch into my leather riding outfit and gear. My hair is braided, gloves put on, and then my coat.

We have quite few horses. Mine is Lucian, she was a gift from my father for my eight birthday, and the only white horse that we have. Father allowed Edmund to ride his horse, Jack. For Jack and Lucian are used to only each other.

I walk out of our stable with Lucian, stroking her ear. I get on her back, and soon Edmund joins me. The air makes it seem like it's barely dawn. Chilly and a few breezes. We can see our breaths in the air as we exhale. This view is beautiful and will never get old. My eyes will always yearn for more. It's grassy here, and we can see the tall trees overhead that mark the starting of the forest, and all there really is in there is mud and vines. That makes it harder a hunt. That's the whole game of this. He's never raced in these woods, so I have one advantage already.

Me racing with a stranger is very rare. But, if he happens to come back, he might win me. Then, that will be a problem. Say hello and goodbye, Edmund, to your only and last race with a girl in your lifetime. There are no girls in this city who ride horses. They don't dare. But, I don't care. I have one of those qualities of being brave. I do what I love beyond judgment. And everyone knows that, so none of them ever question me. Never.
