Apollo - Part 5
The contest was just one week away when Alisha and Mom went riding that late afternoon. They had taken a long trail which was in Colorado's deep valleys.
They had just finished the trail when all of a sudden, it became very dark. "Mom? Why is it so dark?" Alisha asked.
Mom looked at the sky. "It looks like a summer storm. Quick, let's head home."
But soon rain began pouring down on them and the horses began to get frighten. Suddenly, a flash of lighting sent Apollo bucking and rearing up. "Apollo, its okay," Alisha said, trying to calm him down.
Mom was about to say something when another flash sent April(Mom's horse) bucking up and throwing Mom off her back. She landed on the ground in a crumbled heap. "Mom! Are you okay?!" Alisha screamed.
Alisha was at home washing dishes while Mom was napping in her room. It turned out her arm was broken and she would have to rest and wouldn't be able to go to the contest to see Alisha perform. Stacy and her Mom was in the house making sure everything was going fine.
While Stacy's Mom was dusting the living room, Stacy and Alisha talked about the contest. "Are you still going to perform in the contest?" Stacy asked.
Alisha scrubbed a plate before she answered. "Yes. But not to show Jessie a thing or two. It's to show me and Apollo are a team and that we can't do it without each other." Stacy smiled.
