Extravagance

Tori Ortega was ordinary. She didn't ask for much, even though her parents could have bought the moon. She didn't ask for a boyfriend or really mess around with boys, until Issac. She didn't ask for any of what happened to her to happen to her, but once one bad thing happens, it spirals out of control.

After Tori’s third hour she had gone home feeling sick. When she got home her mom was gone probably for pilates. As usual her dad was gone to work so she was home alone.

    She took a nap for about 2 hours and woke up feeling better. She finally got up and grabbed a snack. She was bored and had at least 5 hours till her mom was home (she had a pottery class, then a mini-music class with Cora). She got a text from Luke, her gbf,

‘Hey loser, we are riding today. Meet me out there at 1:30. Idc what excuse you have to come up with. See you soon!’

She rolled her eyes and started laughing. She looked at her watch and saw it was 12:45. She ran up to her room and grabbed her breeches and threw them on. She looked at her favorite sweater and ripped it off. She then walked to her closet and pulled out one of her nicest sweaters (her mom had gotten her) and put it on. She would rather ruin this sweater which she hated then one her mom hated.


 

    Tori arrived at the barn at 1:15. She had a Starbucks drink in her hands as she walked into the barn aisle and screamed down at Luke

“Grande, Pumpkin spice latte”.

Luke came running down the barn aisle completely abandoning Roscoe.

“Oh my god, how do you have these” Luke shouted.

“When your Dad is best friends with the owner of the entire Starbucks franchise you get to move up in line” Tori replied almost laughing.

“Guess I’m screwed then” Luke said tauntingly.

Tori just laughed and began to walk to Genovia’s stall. She was happy Luke was back from wherever his mother had dragged him off to this time. She felt like she could be herself around him, and didn’t have to be worried about him developing feelings for her. She was just able to be Tori around him. Just like she was able to just be Tori around Jess. Tori always thought to herself if Luke weren’t gay then him and Jess would be a great couple.

 

    It was a about 20 minutes after Tori had gotten to Golden Acres that she actually got on Genovia. Genovia had always been a sore subject around her parents. Her parents had never exactly liked the fact that she had traded the hair spray and high heels for tall boots and breeches, and not regretted a minute of it. When Tori had just turned 14 she had seen this gorgeous young mare on the side of the road in a small muddy pen with a sign on the side that read free horse. Tori had been driving on the highway learning to drive with her mother and pulled off the road to the mare. She got out of the car and walked over to the cherry bay mare and put her hand out. She immediately came over and nestled her nose into Tori’s hand. Her mom had just caught up to Tori when the owner came over and started talking about how if she didn't go in the next day or two he was calling the vet for him to come put down the crazy horse that almost killed him. Tori’s mom started rambling about how he was right to do that when Tori said

“stop the non-sense talk, this horse is gentle as a fly. You may not want her, but I do”.

Her mom gave her this horrified look and opened her mouth to object but Tori shot her a look, the only one she had ever gave her mother, the one that meant she meant business and she was going to get this horse with or without her approval. Her mom shut her mouth and just shook her head and the man asked,

“where should I deliver her”?

    It had been 3 years since she had gotten Genovia and she had proven to be one of the best horses in the barn. She didn’t have the best bloodlines, in fact no one knew Genovia’s mother or father. However Genovia had one of the best jumps form wise and could be competitive in both hunters and jumpers. When Genovia heard the buzzer go off she got hyped, Tori could always feel her pulse rise as she heard the buzzer go off and as she started cantering towards the first fence she could almost sense the concentration. It was as if Genovia knew the course already and just there was nothing standing in her way of getting up and over the fence.

    

 

Tori and Luke were riding had been riding Genovia and Roscoe on the hollow trail for around an hour. They were only about 5 minutes from coming up to hollows creek when they heard clip clop clip clop coming up behind them. Tori looked back and say a palomino mare galloping up behind them with no halter, no bridle, no tack, no brand, nothing. The mare looked frightened and was cantering up and spooking Genovia and Roscoe. Tori got off of Genovia and handed her reins to Luke who gave her a look of what are you doing. She stood still for the palimino mare to come cantering up to her. She was about 15 feet in front of Tori when she came to an abrupt halt. The mare slowly walked towards Tori and put her nose directly into Tori’s hand. She grabbed the mare’s long mane and hopped onto her back.
