17. Chapter 17: What Just Happened To Me?
As Niall walked down the barn aisle and around the curve and into the house, I couldn't help but cry. I needed to do something and fast. Riding couldn't help me this time. I have Tenny and Aries hugs, kisses, and pats, and headed to the house. "Cathryn, look. I'm sorry for being such a jerk to you-" I cut him off. "No Niall, it's fine. I mean I love being able to not leave this house and be alone for almost 6 months with nothing to do but ride and train the horses and take care of them." I said sarcastically. "Love, please." Niall said trying to get me to listen. "No. Save it Niall. I can't believe you even had the guys to say what you did back there in the barn! I need relief from this pain you're giving me. By the way, check my twitter when you get the chance, maybe you'll know how I really feel." I said as the water works began. I ran to the bathroom with footsteps close behind me. I quickly locked the door and say on the counter in years. "Please let me in. And don't do anything stupid. Please baby, I need you in my life. Other wise I'm nothing. And Princess I told the fans to stop hating on you otherwise I'd quit One Direction." Niall's muffled Irish accent managed to get through the door. I slowly unlocked the door. My mascara and eyeliner had made me look like a raccoon. "I'm so sorry Niall." I cried into his chest probably ruining his shirt. "It's ok baby, it's ok. I forgive you. Now let's go tack up Tenny and go for a ride. Okay?" Niall asked me. "Ok. You can ride Tenny." I said. "Who are you gonna ride then? Tommy, Cole, Ruby, Tulip, Carolina, Jamieson, May, or Patty." "None of them." I replied. Niall have me a confused look. "Come here Ni, I wanna show you something." "Ok." Niall agreed following me to the barn."What's the surprise?" He asked impatiently. "Hold on." I said as I quickly groomed and tacked up Tenny for Nialler. "I could've done that babe." He said. "That's okay, I got it." I then led Aries out if his stall to groom him. "Babe what are you doing? You're not gonna ride him are you? Right?!" Niall said. I began to tack him up. "Baby girl, you're surely crazy my darlin'" Niall said. I smiled and kissed him.
Niall followed me down the trail around the bends and curves until we came to an open plain. "Ready for a gallop?" I asked him. "Race ya!" Niall said beginning to go from a fast trot to a gallop in seconds as I did smthe same with Aries. We raced to the biggest pine tree in the center of the plain and back to the field. When we got back to the barn, Aries was acting sorta weird. So after Niall untracked Tenny, groomed him, and led him back into his stall, I switched from my western saddle to my English saddle and put it on Aries. I carefully and warily got on him. All of a sudden the boys popped out of no where as I was warming Aries up. Harry, Liam, Louis, Zayn, and Perrie scared the crap out of me and Niall while spooking Aries. "Niall I don't have the safety stirrups on, I can't do the emergency dismount! My foot is stuck!" I panicked as Aries started bucking and rearing. "Oh my gosh. LOOK WHAT YOUVE DONE! LEAVE NOW!" Niall yelled to the other boys and Perrie as uncle Si showed up for a meeting the boys were supposed to have with him today. "Niall. HELP ME!" I said crying. And for the first time in my life, I was actually scared of a horse. This had never happened to me before. I can't believe accidentally put on perrie's saddle for Tommy without safety stirrups with the rubber bands. 'Uh oh, I'm screwed.' I thought to myself as the reward and bucks got bigger. The last thing that I could remember before everything went black, was Aries rearing so high that he fell in my and crushed me. Niall called my name and Uncle Si and Liam said for the boys or Perrie to call 911. When I woke up, I could've sworn that I was in heaven.
