I quickly remounted and asked Tenny to trot. I tapped him lightly with the crop again letting him know to canter as I clucked my tongue and nudged him over a jump. I did a few more jumps and then I went over the 3'6" brick wall jump and then over the 5'1" pole jump and finally ended my course with the 5'6" gait jump. Niall clapped and walked into the middle of the ring as I led Tenny to the outside to cool him out.
"That was great babe!" "Thanks Niall...but can I ask you something?" I said. "Sure babe." He said. I sighed. "What's on your mind?" He asked. Finally one of the his first sentences that don't include babe since we've started dating. "I'm not complaining or anything, I mean I like the nick name but..." I started. "But what?" He asked. "Niall, I wanna know why you call me babe after literally almost every single sentence." I say. "Oh I don't know I guess it's a habit, I called my ex's that too but I'll cut down on saying it for you." He said and smiled. 'Why is he talking about his ex's?' I thought to myself. At that point I had had enough. I was about to dismount so my feet were out of the stirrups. I quickly put them back in, and took off the cooler. "Babe where are you going?" Niall asked sounding a little worried. "Is it something I said?" He asked sounding confused. I hung up the cooler on the railing again but on the other bleachers and completely ignored Niall's questions. I galloped off jumping over the arena's stall door and over the outdoor arena's fence and I didn't stop until I found the creek.
What did I do this time? "Is it something I said?" I asked immediately realizing that I shouldn't have brought up that I used to call my 3 ex's babe.
About 5 minutes after I ran to find Cathryn, I heard sobbing near the little creek and sure enough there was Tenny and Cathryn.
"Why do you keep running off Cathryn? You can't keep doing that it worried me." I said. "We'll guess what it's my choice not yours!" She snapped at me. I turned to leave but she stopped me. "I'm sorry, I just don't like when people talk about their ex's." She said. And seconds later we were kissing. As the kiss deepened we heard Tenny grunt, whinny, and snort and then we pulled away because we heard Louis whistle. "Fuck off!" I said. "No it's fine. What's up Lou?" Cathryn said.
"Nothing just wanted to see if you guys wanted to watch a movie with the rest of the boys and I." Louis said. "Sure that sounds great m, let me just untack my Tennybear <3 :) and feed him." I said. "Mind if I help?" Louis said. "Yeah me, too." Niall said sounding a bit jealous. "Sure that'd be great!" I said smiling.
We walked back to the barn and I undid Tenny's bridle and put his halter on him and put him back on the cross ties. I undid his girth and took off his saddle. While I was taking off his polo wraps, the boys curry combed and brushed him. I then picked Tenny's feet and combed his main and tail and lead him back in his stall. "Lou, can you please go get my dressage saddle from the arena?" I asked politely. "Sure." He said. "Thanks Lou bear." I said hugging him. "No I'll get it." Said Niall. "I'm sure Louis can handle it." I said sternly. "Ok." He said. Louis came back and I took off helmet, put the crop back and carried Tenny's bridle and both my dressage saddle and English saddle because Niall and Louis were "too busy talking". I put grain in a bucket and grabbed a flake of hay and put them in Tenny's stall. After that I filled up is water bucket with fresh water. Louis went inside to start the movie. We were watching all of the Toy Story movies because we let Liam choose. Big mistake but I don't really mind. "Cathryn, do you need help with anything else?" Niall asked me. I just ignored him because I was a little agitated that he didn't help me put all of my tack aways. "Did I do something?" He asked. "Nope, but thanks for helping me put both of my saddles away." I said sarcastically. "Oh wait, ya didn't cause you were too busy talking." I said and went inside. "I'm sorry." I heard Niall say as he ran after me. I got in the house just as the movie began. 'Great' I thought to myself. I sat right in between Harry and Liam just to tuck Niall off. I realized that was a huge mistake. As soon as Niall walked in he was about to slap Harry but I stepped in the way and got slapped instead. It stung so much. I could feel the tears forming in my eyes. I couldn't let them see me cry so I ran out of the room and to my bedroom. I locked the door and quickly grabbed my helmet and slid on my boot and gloves. The boys were banging on the door so I quickly slid my phone in my pocket and I was about to walk to open the door when it fell down with all the boys standing there and Niall crying.
What did I just do? I began to cry as she ran upstairs to her room. I hope she'll forgive me and know that it was an accident. But I didn't know she chose to sit next to him. Oops.
"Excuse me!" I said as I pushed past the boys and ran down the stairs. I ran to the barn and quickly tacked Tenny up in his stall with the English saddle. I put in his boots and did the throat and nose band on his bridle. I was walking out when I bumped in to Zayn's fiancé and my best friend Perrie Edwards. "Sorry." I said. "Wait let me come with you." She said I agreed and we both got on Tenny just in time because a second later the boys came running up both Zayn and Niall crying. "Go! I'll explain in the way." Perrie said and then we galloped off. We went to Perrie's ranch house that only her and I knew about and Perrie's horse Tommy who is a 12 year old thoroughbred got dropped off. We decided to put Tenny and Tommy in the stalls and went inside and talked after in tacking Tenny and feeding Tommy and him. Niall and I never went shopping, instead, Perrie and I did. :)
