Stable boy

Sylva is alone in the world. She lives in a manor with her mom but still her mom wants her to live on high society. She can't, not with having to marry Hash in a year or with her love of horses. Then she meets Jane. A girl hiding in her stables, together they start on a journey to freedom.

I stayed in and read the rest of the day but the next day I snuck out at dawn to look for the boy.

He found me.

A body dropped down next to me.

I jumped and said the first thing that came to my mind, “hi”.

“You dropped that pully on purpose,” he said accusingly.

“No, I was just trying to get away then I accidentally knocked it off,” I corrected, with feeling the need to explain my self.

“So you're the famous kid,” he taunted.

I gather courage and shout back, “I saved you from a lashing”!

“By accident,” he replied.

I was about to walk away when I saw his eyes.  There was a forum a amusement in them.

“W-W-What is so funny?” I asked.

“Your wits,” he said.

When I did not answer he went on with, “Well you are smart but I could outsmart you”.

“You sure could not with the stable manager,” I said wishing my voice was not so meek.

“True,” he said calmly.

“Something is odd about your voice,” I stated.

“Well hey if you want to talk again I am up in the very back of the rafters,” he responded.  Then he left.

I stood dumbfounded.  He had been so defencive, so tough, then he just let’s go of something like that.  Too trusting or I thought with a touch of mischief and slight repulsion at my self, love at first sight.
