1. A Farewell Before an Intro
Today was my worst day. We were being forced to sell my racing horse for money. The previous night before, I cried so much, I cried myself to sleep. That night I dreamed of my and my horse, at home, the stable, at competitions. All of that would be gone.
The trailer came to pick up Storm, my horse, at 11:00. While my father chatted with the man, I said goodbye to my horse.
"Storm, I will miss you so much. I will never forget you." I said, tears spilling out as if my eyes were a waterfall. Storm nuzzled me, and I rubbed his neck. My mother came looking for me. When she saw me, she ran over and hugged me tight.
"Oh Sweetie. I know you don't want to do this, but we have too. After we bought him, our money started slipping, and good horses don't come cheap." Mother said, stroking my hair. My father came around after taking money from the man.
"It's time for Storm to go." He said, sadness in his voice. The trailer was closed, and the man drove off, taking countless memories with him.
After that, I didn't talk at all. I was upset and would be for a while.
Will I ever get over it?
