6. The start of the Journey

I walked down the stairs and Bobbie greeted me at the bottom. I looked at him and decided i would have to bring him along. Bobbie bounded around and barked at me. The rain had started again. I looked down and picked up my school bag. The contents spilled on the floor and i replaced math and science book with dog food and a blanket. After that i walked to the stables. Luke nickered a greeting and i stroked his head. I got one of the pick-nick baskets in the stable and put a horse blanket inside. Placing it on the floor i went to get the saddle and tack. Luke looked strong and fast and ready to go as i saddled him. "Bobbie in the basket we are going"I shouted. Bobbie jumped into the basket and i picked up the handle tying it secure to the saddle. The steps scraped the concreted ground and hay as i pulled on them bringing them closer to Luke. I walked up the steps and onto Luke's back. "lets go boy" i said "remember though Jake there is no going back". I spurred Luke into a gallop and the 3 of us went over the fence heading to a place I do not know about. 

I let Luke me and Bobbie to where ever he wanted just making sure we didn't go onto the road. Fiddling in my pocket i brought out a chocolate bar. I had brought 15 bars with me but only 2 were accessible for the journey. The chocolate snapped in half and i slowly munched my way through the half that i was eating. The sun started to set casting a red like blood of colors towards me I surfaced the memory of the faces asleep. Why couldn't i admit that they were who they were, why am i keeping it a secret to myself. 'They are dead' i said to myself, "they are dead" i spoke,"My parents are dead why are my parents dead!" I screamed at the top of my voice. We galloped into a nearby forest and Luke slowed to a walk. I slid off the saddle and tied Luke to a tree. Bobbie scrambled out and I let him run around sniffing everything he could find. Grabbing some sticks i started a small fire with a lighter i had found and found a place where my memories wouldn't haunt me and fell asleep.
