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.

Later in the day I had a visit with Amieli.

“I heard at the last party that you had a run in with Hash,” she said in a sing song voice.  

We were sitting on a balcony above the front yard.  Not the most glamorous view, but you could still see the horses pastors from here.

“Oh yes it was so cleshay,” I answered.

“Did you get hit by the love bug hard then?” she joked.

I forced a laugh.  She had no idea what I meant by cleshay.

“So tell me is it Hash or another man?” Amelia asked with venom.

“Actually it is Hash, I don’t go for stuff like that,” I responded.

“You would say that,” she accused.

“Tell me why,” I ordered and stalled.

“Your reputation,” she answered calmly.

“Of course if you lie then what happens,” I pointed out.

Amelia bit her lip like she had not thought of this concept.  A long awkward stretch of silence followed.

“So did you hear about the horses with the legendary record?” I asked eagerly.

“Why would I care about,” stated Amelia wrinkled her nose and added, “horses”?

I sat with stunned silence.  Of all people she should know that our family’s entire fortune is horses based.

Again my facial expression deceived me.  Amelia changed the subject and asked, “Can I tell you about this juicy bit of info”?

“Go for it,” I said knowing that there was no way to stop the gossip train.

“Well apparently the tea party was over taxes, I mean come on it’s not like we did not save their sorry hides in the french, indian war,” she chattered with over amplified emotion.

“Interesting,” I muttered.

“Well I got to go meet with my boy friend,” she exclaimed.  Then like that Alimia was gone.  Now though I had knowledge even if like most stuff coming from her, it was untrue and hurtful.
